So I’ve started working out the past few months, and in the last month cut Coca Cola out of my diet completely. I drink only water now. Recently I started doing the Cardio section of P90X every morning. Once I’ve lost enough of the gut I’ll start with the rest of P90x. And today I went grocery shopping, and for the first time ever, bought healthy food. I used to always buy lots of coke, chips, candy, pre-cooked fried food and microwavable. But diet is the last piece of the puzzle to fill, so I made the smarter decisions. Extra lean turkey breast, whole wheat bread, egg-whites, tuna, pasta noodles and low-fast sauce, lettuce, low-fat perogies, rice, lettuce, dried cranberries for snacking, etc. Not only were these choices healthier, but buying base ingredients instead of pre-cooked stuff is way cheaper! Plus I’m saving a ton each month by not drinking coke.
I’m really digging this change of lifestyle. I feel more motivated and productive, I’m beginning to see the results in my body, and after working out I feel fantastic every morning. I just hope I can keep it up once I get back to work!
