So they say you are what you eat. If this is true then I think I am a big fat french fry. I love french fries so much – they are my weakness. I wish I could love apples or celery the way I love french fries then I wouldn’t be battling with weight loss. My mother was cracking up when I told her I was a big fat french fry. But if I am nothing at all I am honest and that is what I have become.
I re-joined the gym in October and was going pretty inconsistently until about three weeks ago when I quit my job (which let me tell you was the best decision I have made in a long time). But even though I hadn’t been working out everyday or even 5 days a week I wasn’t eating any more then normal but I was still gaining weight. So I decided to sit down with a nutritionist and he gave me some much needed insight. He said and I quote, “what you do at the gym is only 20% of the solution, 80% of getting in shape is your diet”.
My mouth dropped. I mean talk about basic math. So, basically I can workout every single day and see no results if I don’t change my diet. That was a huge slap in the face. Now, anyone who knows me knows that I love food, I am a food-aholic but just like with anything – admitting it is the first step. So there I put it out in the universe I am a fried food loving, wine drinking, potato head, grease monkey food-aholic. Step one done – now I have to adjust that and I am asking for your help.
Anyone who has some healthy recipes that are quick and tasty please share them with me. I am a work in progress and healthy or not it has to taste good. Help me love celery and apples and carrots and green stuff please. I don’t want to be a big fat french fry anymore! SOS
