Today marks the first day of SSS eat right, drink (water) like a fish, and work out often, plan of fat attack. A week ago, I had an epiphany – I AM FAT! And being overweight is not a life sentence. In order to assure early parole from this jail of extra weight; I have come up with a plan. And yes, I have had plans in the past and am aware that my chances of success are slim to none. Joke intended.
However, as my 39th birthday looms on the horizon and my 40th, not far behind; I realize that time is not on my side and I need to get my A** in gear. I penned my attack plan, joined the gym near my house, and brought my walking shoes to work. I am serious and like every serious dieter, I am afraid; afraid of giving in to my love of M&Ms, cake, sweet tea, and carbs. I pray my determination outweighs my greed this time around and have built a Teflon suit of armor (surrounding myself with like-minded folks).
The SSS plan:
Eating every two – three hours up to six times daily and eating no later than 9pm
Drinking half my body weight in water daily (to the bathroom I go every 4 sec)
Some form of exercise daily (weight-training, water aerobics, squats, push-ups, etc.)
20 minute walks twice daily at work
No sugar (shaking like a crack head)
No processed foods
No soda or tea
Weigh-in every Monday
The plan is still a work in progress as is my body, but so far so good. Day one is breezing by. I did miss my morning cup of cream and sugar with a lil coffee, but I trooped through. Let’s hope today’s tenacity extends through-out this month. Will keep you updated.
