I’m going on this 31-day diet which I’m calling the 31-day die-yet challenge. The mechanics are simple – just go on a diet, try to lose weight and not die in the process. If you’re feeling a little angst and or anger towards the diet, you’re right. There is.
I have PCOS and I have to maintain a certain weight to ensure all some things continue to work smoothly. Things haven’t been running smoothly and I have no choice but to lose weight. There’s a lot of negativity here and I’m really sorry. To be completely and 100% honest, I’m just annoyed that I have to go on another diet again because of this. It’s no one’s fault but mine. The truth hurts so let me get all this anger out of the way so I can tell you more of my plans.
The plan is to understand what and how I eat first. The last time I tried to lose weight, I was working from home which made it very easy to control what I ate. But now that I work 5 days a week at the office, I need to understand how and what I eat to make this die-yet more efficient.
I am using the Lifesum app (which has very cool features, by the way) to count calories. I want to understand which meals I prepare or buy actually has the most calories.
I will also be using the NTC (Nike Training app) to help me get in my weekly dose of exercise. I am currently enrolled in the Lean Plan. I haven’t really exercised much because of this injury I had (I was coughing too hard and my rib area would hurt every time I coughed or stretched) but I’m hoping this March I can exercise more.
And lastly, I plan to post some of the food I eat to keep myself accountable. Here are some of the meals from the first three days of March. You can follow my food Instagram to see more details.
I don’t know what I’m doing. Let’s hope by the end of March good things will come out of this.
