Portion Control….ugh…..my worst enemy! For as long as I can remember, I have always piled the food onto my plate and ate until I felt like I was going to explode. I figured that’s how I knew when I was full. Well obviously that was one of my issues that I knew I had to work on when I started my journey. Going back to my post named “Just Eat Right”….its so beneficial to eat 5 to 6 small meals instead of eating 2 or 3 large meals. It keeps you from binge eating or overeating and feeling disgusted with yourself. I have tried several different ways of controlling my portions…weighing all my food, comparing them to my fist, even buying smaller dinner plates but I have found I am still eating more than I should.
After contemplating for several weeks, I finally took the plunge and purchased the 21 Day Fix from beachbody.com. I read some reviews on the program and got some great personal feedback from two amazing Beach Body coaches (Thanks Mandi Hetrick and Andrea Stephens!) and I figured it was worth a shot. Hey….all I had to lose was some weight right?! I am super excited to start this program (on Monday) and will definitely keep everyone posted on my struggles and triumphs throughout the program. I chose not to buy the shakeology for financial reasons but it could be on the list to buy on the next round! Here is to trying new things and doing what it takes to becoming a healthier me!
