So I'm going to say it. Diet. Yup. That word. Eeeeek. Everyone hates it- it shouldn't even be a word, but, it is.
And the common mistake- is that 'diet' is a bad word. It's gotten a bad rep, in this town, and yours, I'm sure. obviously, due to the fact that people make it to be this thing you go on- to lose weight, then fail. No no sweets! That is not what a diet is. Let me tell you, diet is merely the way you eat. As simple as that. It's your diet. Could be anything for anyone. But it's just that- the way you eat in a day. Your usual. Etc. And all I'm saying is mine needs a RE DO. And thats just what is going to take place. Why you may ask? I look fine, I know this. But I am not as healthy as I may seem. I do eat very well, yes. But I eat too much. Way too much. and with very little balance. And that is not what I want. I want to have a balanced diet, don't you? Including working out regularly. I hate this yo yo thing I do. Workout this week, not the next- and the cycle continues on and on. No. I want to make this a habit. A Healthy routine. My routine.
I want to acknowledge someone real quick. My new, role model- Kris Carr. What an amazing leader. What a beautiful soul, a helpful, patient, teacher. Sharing all of her information to the world, in order to give out her helping hand. She was sick- but she chose to think differently. And change her mind. The power of our thinking, oh my geeeeeezzzz. It's truly the most important thing you could do for your health. I'm in the entertainment business, believe me. Thinking can be hurtful. After lots of failed attempts at auditions, call backs.... etc. It's hard man! But you got to build your mind up so tall. Be so sure of yourself. Be a super woman/man. That other thoughts/judgments of others, do NOT matter. You are who you are. And you share that with some people who could put you in a commercial. If they don't like it, OH well. It was you. You did your best, you shared You. This was one of the hardest things for me, still is sometimes, but Kris Carr. Wow she just exudes this trait. How little she cares of what any body thinks of her. She is her bright shiny self. And she is my amazing role model. Thanks to her, I look at my self just a little differently. We all are capable of anything, but we have us to give to offer to the world, lets make sure were doing that. We all are glowing bright lights, inside and out. We just gotta turn that switch and share the light with everyone around. In whatever way you want to. Whatever makes you happy!
Now back to my diet- ahem. Yes. It needs a do over. I've got a plan. And it's gonna happen. This is a lifestyle change people. Not your typical bad word 'diet;. It's my new diet. The way I chose to eat, for health and vitality. Cause I wanna feel better about my body, and treat it better. Give it balance, give my life more balance. I want clearer skin, brighter GLOW. And to lose a bit of weight-yes I want to. So I will. The end!
What I suggest, from past experiences, and I know what is good for me- to slim down. First and foremost is to drink a lotttttt of aqua mi amigos. Water- yes wataaaaa! Gotta clear yourself out, cleanse it. Get it clean and clear! Comprende?
Another big things- drinking alcohol, carbs, and sugar. Yes. These things can hurt us, although they do make us happy. :) BUT need everything in moderation! Truly! So lets attempt this. Now how can we live without sugar, bread and margaritas? OMG! Dude- chill out. You can live without it for 5 days. I think, having it once or twice a week is totally fine. But it's about balance. Have it a little bit. Ya don't need that much to get your fix ;) Have a little piece of dark chocolate, a beer, a glass of wine, etc. But 1-2x a week. No mos! The rest lets keep it super healthy. Lets get your body where you wanna be! I'm sick of always 'saying' I'm going to do something- then there is absolutely no change. Thats lame! I want to put my words- to truth. and actions. If it means you need to get up extra early to go work out, then do it! If you have to turn down a cookie, then DO IT. Will power, strength. You can do this. believe me, I got your back. So back to the plan Here it is. What I think is best for me. If you eat meat, then exchange the times I put protein with whatever protein you like! :) K!?
organic egg white scramble with veggies
small soy latte (If I want)
Snack: (2 x in a day)
almonds with apple or
hummus with carrot sticks or broccoli
Green protein smoothie
or Salad with protein
Fish or Tofu with veggies and boiled sweet potato
+ green juice. (kale, cucumber, spinach, parsley, ginger)
So there ya have it! What I'll be doing for 5 days out of my weeks to come
as well as doing some sort of activity for an hour, daily! Try it with me!
I have a good feeling about this! :)
