Healthy Low Carb/IIFYM Lifestyle Weigh-In - January 31st - Week Zero
Today is the official start of my healthy low carb and IIFYM (it it fits your macros) lifestyle. I'm back in the 190's but I know I won't be in them for too long so I'm not that worried about it.
I won't be tracking how many days I'm cheat day free any more because there are no more cheat days or foods. Food is food and for 80% of my time it will be healthy and on track and 20% will just be enjoying special occasions and small treats. I'm thinking that's a pretty sensible way of dealing with things.
I seem to do really well when food isn't "bad" and "evil" and is just food. It's like my body understands that I can have a small piece of anything whenever I want as long as I make it fit into my day so there's no reason to binge because that food isn't denied to me anymore. I still have a lot of work to do in that department but I think I"m making definite progress!
I will also be tracking exercise days instead of "cheat" days from here on out because I really think that will help me get back on track with my fitness. I'm hoping to be done being sick and be back on track with working out by this weekend because I'm already starting to feel better!
I also plan to keep going with yoga challenges (starting the February one tomorrow) and with step challenges, which will also be back on track when I'm not sick anymore!
So here are my new starting number for this plan and I'll be weighing in on Thursdays, as I used to do, and taking measurements and body fat % once a month!
