This post isn't about saving money or living well on less. But it is about living well and being in control of my health. I want to be fit and healthy for my retirement.
Yesterday I 'graduated' (that's what they call it, not me!) from The Body Coach 90 day plan. 90 days of eating amazingly healthy food and exercise. It's not for everyone but it seems to work for most people who stick with it until the end. In 90 days I've lost 4.5kg (10lbs) and 17.5 inches off my waist, hips and thighs. I was already eating healthily and going to the gym regularly but it wasn't working any more. I was slowly and steadily putting on weight especially round my tummy (hormones, eh?) I needed to shock my body into losing that bloody fat!!
90 days ago I couldn't get these trousers up over my thighs. In fact, the denim ones even have a gap in the waistband at the back!
This worked for me. I don't think it matters what you do to stay healthy as long as you're active and keep switching it up to trick your body. I've found that I like to do the same things and not change my routines/habits. As I get older I've realised this doesn't work for me. So I'm forcing myself out of that rut.
I'm going to keep going with the principles of the plan as I've still got weight and fat to shift. I've got 5 weeks until my Australian holiday so that's my motivation.
Never think you're too old/too fat/too lazy to do something about your own health. It's hard but worth it.
