It seems as if everyone wants to lose weight and get in better shape.
- Some people give up and others don’t even try.
Some people prefer to focus more on their diet. They lean toward doing Weight Watchers or the KETO diet. I would rather target physical activity than what I eat. I am dedicated to working out every morning during the week. I workout for a full hour. I start with a warm up and stretch and then move onto strenuous cardio and some weightlifting. No matter what else is going on, I push it to the point of exhaustion and wanting to quit. Sometimes I deal with sore muscles or just feeling tired all afternoon because of an especially brutal workout. I am in decent shape, but not peak condition. For how hard I workout, I should be slimmer and more fit. I think my problem is that I don’t eat totally healthy. I am a vegetarian, so I am not eating red meats or seafood swimming in butter. I stay away from fast food, but my weakness is sweet treats. I just love all foods with sugar. Every day, I eat yogurt for lunch. Unfortunately, I like to add a few Oreos to it. For a snack, I might have carrots and hummus, but then I let myself have a few Reese’s cups! By dinner time, I feel a little ashamed of the candy and cookies. I eat a careful dinner but then I might finish with an ice cream bar or some chocolate for dessert. I snack on some type of sugar at different points over the course of the day. If I don’t have any candy in the cupboards, I start to panic. I know I could improve my weight and muscle tone if I would just be better about my diet. My gym offers nutritional counseling. I am considering consulting with a professional about my diet.
