I use the term, move our bodies, because I don’t want to frighten some people with the words, exercise or workout!
There were a couple of times I came close to eating something I knew wasn't healthy for me (popcorn cooked in oil with salt added), but I knew that wasn't what I really wanted for my body.
We don’t realize that if we drank more water, we'd lose more weight or that we'd speed up healing.
At first, I felt disappointed in myself, and then I quickly shifted my mindset (I've built up my ability to do so). I knew the feeling was temporary, and I knew I could learn from my mistake. I’m developing new eating habits that will take time.
We need long periods of time for the body to function properly. The idea behind intermittent fasting is to give your body the time it needs to do its job, while also naturally decreasing your food intake throughout the day.
Once you understand the concept of calorie density in more depth, however, and you take a closer look at the foods you eat, you’ll realize how knowing calorie density can help you lose or maintain your weight.
At this point, with older age looming ahead of me, it’s time to stop pussy-footing around! I do not want to be trying to lose weight when I’m 70! It’s time to make changes that are permanent, and it’s time to commit 100% to my health by dropping the extra weight once and for all.
It’s usually easier for us to just sit around than it is to get moving (unless you’re already an active person). This means it's up to us to commit to getting regular exercise.
