Engine 2 Diet and Blood Work

I'm a total wuss when it comes to doctors. I go more than some people, but less than I should. There. I said it. I also know I am getting by on borrowed time. All my numbers are fine, but that's genetics tiding me over. I know there's no way I'm going to stay healthy if I don't lose weight.

This year, I've made some very good changes: I do yoga at least 4 times a week, recently started walking along to walking work out videos, drinking more water, and at least trying to not talk to myself like I'm a complete loser.

And then there's the ambiguous "eating better". I don't really know if I am eating better or not, since food journaling fell by the wayside. It wasn't hard. I just stopped. Now, I need to really, really dig into eating.

OH. MY. GOD. Will I STOP with all the WORDS already???


1. Tomorrow I get bloodwork done so I have baseline numbers.
2. In between now and Monday I clean out my pantry, fridge, desk....
3. Monday, I start the Engine 2 diet.

That is all! Over and out!!!

I've been tinkering with a really loose "Flexitarian" diet. That really means, I MEAN to be a vegetarian, but I'm going to go ahead and eat meat, too. But Tom's Muay Thai coach brought up this diet he's doing. This dude's a fireman, AND a Muay Thai coach. If HE can live without meat, so can I, at least for 28 days.

I don't know if I could ever learn to live without meat. More power to you, and I hope it's something you can do well beyond the 28 days!

I feel your pain about the "eating better" concept. I'm at the point in my life where I don't know what I'm supposed to eat anymore.

i think it's awesome to try new things. if you keep trying, you'll eventually find the best way of eating that works for your life.
