I normally don't read a lot of that stuff. I am a life time WW member, I know about little snacks, protein, exercise, portions, I have a pretty dead metabolism so a lot of the time to me it is just reiterating stuff that I already know to be true.. but not always true for me. To loose weight I have to run 4 miles a day AND do Weight Watchers to a "T".
Well needless to say I haven't been doing either.
Well this article just hit the spot. Thank you Vicki!
While I am not doing everything just yet....
Here is what I am doing:
I am getting up an hour early and walking the dog for a brisk almost jog for 30 minutes. I am making the egg/egg white omelet, along with oatmeal and a banana. (wow it is hard to get that much food in, as I am not used to eating until work and then just usually a lousy diet yogurt).
I am doing some sort of WW lunch plans. Yesterday grilled chicken and green beans. Today a frozen entree (Tuna noodle casserole)
I am saving the yogurt for a snack in the afternoon. I do enjoy it more as a snack in the after noon rather than breakfast. The article suggests a protein snack.
I am drinking more water....and cold too!
I am sipping coffee. (yeah.. sounds odd.. but you gotta read the article).
I am going to bed 30-60 minutes earlier and trying to cut out the second glass of wine.
And there are some other things that I am going to try also, like green tea, fish oil pills, adding chopped green or red chili's, and iron rich foods. Along with a sensible Weight Watchers Eating Schedule.
To get the gist just read the article.. it makes sense.. I like sensible approaches to things. What do you think?
Here is a shot of Dex on the first day.. He is loving the extra exercises, he just starting moaning and whining when he sees the running shoes on in the morning. The second is a picture of my omelete. It is simple.. one egg, one egg white, on slice cheese in the middle, with salt and pepper. On my next grocery run I will get some onions and peppers to jazz it up.
