Different Eats

Another day off of work, yeah. I could get used to this. I was supposed to clean the garage Friday but, I didn’t do that until today. Now I have to wait for the Heating and Air guys to come and work on my heater. They were supposed to be here the first thing in the morning, grrr. I guess their mornings are different than mine. I hate waiting but, now you get to see what is up with me.

A co-worker of my wife told her that she was going to do a Totally Fit Life program and wanted to know if she wanted to join with her. The meetings conflicted with my wife’s schedule but, said she would look into it. Upon discussing this with me and her co-worker she decided she would follow along with her but, not attend class. The good news is I get the benefits as well. I get to try a new eating plan and hopefully my wife will get bitten by the health bug. She is healthy but, sometimes we have a few too many cheat meals. When cheat meals become the main meals I don’t think they can be called cheating anymore.

We decided to start this Sunday. I was hoping for one last cheat meal of pizza. As a couple it’s easier to change our food together and since I told her I would do this with her, no more pizza. Well the first 10 days of this is called boot camp. We have to exercise everyday and they prefer it to be done early morning on an empty stomach. No problem for me this fits my schedule most days. The food part is going to be a bit tricky for me. No sugar, no alcohol, mostly water, and low glycemic foods. I am not used to measuring foods using their glycymic index. To make this easier for me, I will problem just stick to my chicken, eggs, and fish. Then for the other “good” foods I will eat whatever my wife says is ok to eat according to the guidelines. She took a lot of measurements of herself and we both weighed in Sunday. My weight, gulp is 155 pounds. I took some measurements a couple of months ago so I will just stick with those.

On a side note I wrote up a small little leg routine that I did with my oldest son.  I am going to whip him into shape.  The workout consisted of wall squats, lunges, planks, calf raises, alternate leg raises and some jumping jacks.  I felt some burn while doing it.  Nothing to bad.  I just hope he was able to walk today.

    Good luck with your new eating plan! It is definitely easier when both spouses are on board.

    Sounds like my house, when I change my eating habits everyone has to. I refuse to cook 2 dinners a night 🙂 Good luck and I hope you enjoy your new eating plan

      Thanks. Makes it easier to stick to something. I have pretty good will power but, this just helps both of us. This will also help me figure what foods have a low GI.

    Good luck with the eating plan. That’s something the hubby and I need to work on.. I don’t think the red velvet ice cream (which is super yummy!) is helping us out in anyway…

    Sounds like a great plan. I have never ate foods based on the glycemic values bu I have read about it. It will definitely be easier if you both are on board with this. Also getting your son in shape is awesome. Making it a family value of health and fitness. Great job.
