Drop it like its Hot: The Honeymoon Period


The beginning of a diet/workout plan is always my favorite…

This is the time when I love eating veggies, I feel empowered when I say “No thanks” to brownies and walking uphill at warp speed feels like the best thing in the world. It feels amazing because I can guarantee that when I weigh in, I will see the results on the scale. The pounds melt away so quickly and easily. (Especially if you have a long way to go because the heavier you are, the more calories you burn when exercising).

This morning I weighed myself and I’ve dropped two more pounds. Of course I’m happy, but I need to keep reminding myself that this is a lifestyle change. So that when the veggies dont taste that exciting, the pounds aren’t slipping away so easily, and the snow on the ground makes me want to skip the gym; I will continue to work as hard as I am now.

    yay for the 2 more lbs! I agree that the honeymoon period is the easiest/best, but it's what we do when it's hard that counts…Good Luck!

    Good for you!

    The honeymoon period – I never thought of it like that. But maybe keep going with the metaphor? After a delightful honeymoon, there is a fulfilling relationship? (ahem, that was lame – apologies)

    I find it really hard to make really creative salads that get enough protein (I am a veggo) and are new and exciting.
