So I have been continuing using my guide from Modern Fit and I am genuinely struggling finding food options that make me feel satisfied. It’s not that I am feeling hungry but great food has always been a huge part of my life. I have worked around chefs and restaurateurs as long as I can remember and the idea of removing things like great cheese from my life whenever I want has become the biggest challenge.
I know this sounds strange to most, like I should magically have gained some sort of control over my urges and impulses by being dedicated to being healthier but it’s not that easy. When you have been a poor eater your whole life, it’s a entire shift to start making decisions regarding food.
What keeps me going is the measurements being taken on the My Fitness Pal app, I decided to pay the $9.95 for the monthly access and it was a good decision because I got a huge variety of features to keep me motivated and help me understand my progress. It has been a great help to understand my macro nutrition such as how much fat, protein and carbs are going in as just counting calories can be tricky.
Since this journey has begun I have lost 5.6 lbs. Not enough to make a huge difference in my clothing but enough for me to feel like something is happening. I know it’s also important to consider non scale victories but until I start seeing some improvement in other areas of my life, that feels like the most tangible. Stay tuned for a further update and see below for my list of items that I added to my workout routine.
