My Getting Healthy Plan (do as I say, not as I do)

Hi Deryl and friends.... ( yes I'm talking to myself..and maybe you? )


I was going through some old files in Google drive and I found something... something I wrote when I was losing weight quite easily ( 30 pounds in 3 months ) at my former workplace during a Biggest Loser competetion... I was using a combination of the GI diet and exercise ( eat well and exercise... COMPLEX STUFF PEOPLE.....COM...PLEX... ) and well... knowing that I'd probably eventually slip up ( and I did ..gaining back at one point 25 of those 30 pounds, becoming a type II diabetic, etc, etc ) I wrote myself a cheatsheet of "how to do it again.." ....  there are books and books about this stuff... pages and pages devoted to it all... here's the coles notes of my past success.. 

  • Mind
    • Literally the mind either makes you do it… or prevents you from doing it. This is the biggest struggle..the biggest hurdle.
  • Idea
    • You need an idea…. an idea of why you’re starting?  Overweight? tired? sick?
  • Plan
    • What’s the plan?  Food? Exercise?  both?  
  • Goal
    • What’s the goal?  health?  weight?  both?
  • Desire
    • What will motivate you?  What’s in it for YOU to follow through?
  • Highs - Lows
    • There will be wicked highs and wicked lows….
  • Food
    • Here’s the thing…. the #1 thing – you are what you eat.  don’t argue.

  • Exercise
    • Small Activity
      • Walk
      • Garden
      • Regular in small intervals – once-twice per week
    • Med Activity
      • Power walk
    • Increased Activity
      • Gym

  • Online page ( Facebook. Sparkpeople, blog, etc ) do it again...
