This month, Jay and I started on a new, healthier way of eating. It’s called the 4 Hour Body – I first heard of it from Becker’s blog, he lost a TON of weight in the last year. We both had some weight we wanted to drop, and overall just start having better eating habits, so we decided to give it a shot.
The first week was ROUGH. To say I like my sweets is an understatement (obviously you aren’t supposed to eat sugar on this diet). I had a REALLY hard time not having a little something sweet after my dinners. Plus, when you’re first trying diets and trying to find recipes you like, it can be pretty hit or miss. By day 3 I wanted to stop, but good thing Jay is on board, he made me push through. So far we’re about 3 weeks into our new, healthier, eating ways, and I’m glad I stuck with it. I feel a LOT better lately. And the best part of this diet? It requires you to take one cheat day a week. One day where you can eat anything and everything you want. It’s just what I need to get through the week, knowing I can have anything I want to indulge on by Saturday. Mentally knowing I’m not TOTALLY cutting out everything I love really helps me get through the week:) Also – you’re allowed to have red wine! I never loved red wine, but since it’s allowed on the diet, I’ve become a fan:) That’s where my January desktop came into play!
So far, after 2 weeks I’m down 6 pounds, and Jay is down 10 – I consider that a pretty huge success! We’ll be adding in the exercise portion of the 4 hour body in the next week or so, I’m excited to see even more results:)
Here is my breakfast every morning – two eggs and a tomato. Even though the diet is getting easier and easier every week, it’s STILL a diet. And this is how I feel a lot of times while eating:)
