Four months down the track

About four months ago I made a decision to change my lifestyle habits and eating habits. Progress is slow and steady. I’m going well.

I’ve incorporated exercise into my daily routine, something I thought I could never fit in. The most noted change is in eating habits.

I’ve said goodbye to lots of foods that I always ate without giving much thought to the ramifications.

Soft drink
Chocolate
Biscuits

all gone, to name a few. Along with fast food, although I never had a lot of it; now I have none.

I gave up coffee too. Withdrawal from caffeine hits quite hard. I’ve been a coffee drinker for 20+ years with 2-3 cups, sometimes more, per day. I’ve been reducing my intake for several weeks but the 3-4 days after stopping altogether were horrible. Constantly tired and cranky. Fitful sleep patterns. Now I have herbals teas and lots more water each day.

I really thought as I came off these “bad” foods that I would have a craving for them. I don’t though. I don’t miss them at all.

The change is hard. While I haven’t noticeably lost any weight yet, I do feel better.
