Month of Shed

18 09 2007

Over the last 5 weeks we have been working on different program. We have been focusing on strength and working with kettle bells. On top of that we also decided to move close to the Zone diet which basically would increase my vegetable intake and lower the carb intake as well as take dairy and wheat out completely.

I normally eat well and don’t really have a lot of garbage food but during this time, I really focused on eating for energy. If I ate something it was because it would increase my energy and I did not it was because it would take too much energy to digest it.

It was a very interesting 5 weeks. I don’t think I have ever done a strict diet and if I ever tried, I did not finish it. 🙂  There is no reason to torture oneself to meet others definitions of beauty.

The lesson for me was that I can still improve my eating habits and not suffer hunger or urges. The results were loosing about 5 lbs, which I could not say if it is good or bad thing since the goal was to improve my health. The only reason I am interested in loosing some pounds was to improve my hiking.  🙂

So… mission accomplished. NOW I CAN EAT PIZZA! hehehe
