I have been on a lifestyle revamp for about three months now. I am not calling it a diet because this is the new me. My new way of living. I have been walking 4-6 times per week for a little over three months now. I am happy to say that it is now a habit. I adore my walks which is a big change from the mindset I had three months ago.
Now I have several other things I need to makeover. One is consistently taking my vitamins. I feel much better when I take them. I just need to remember to take them. I have a horrible case of Momma brain and this has been much harder to implement than it should be.
The second thing I need to focus on is improving my eating. I am a foodie. I adore baking and eating out. Those two things make for a dangerous combination when attempting to become a healthier person.
One thing I have learned on this journey is that it is not all or nothing. I have lost nine pounds and many inches. I am so pleased with that. I am loosing even if it is ever so slow. I thank God every day for the ability to move and worship while I walk.
While I am in the process of readjusting my eating I am learning to make healthier choices. I was blessed enough to receive some coupons for the new McDonald's Premium Chicken Sandwiches. I know me. I know I will eat out. What I have to think about is a better choice. The Classic Grilled Chicken Sandwich has 350 calories, whole wheat buns, and reduced sodium. Definitely a better choice than a burger or chicken nuggets.
I went out grocery shopping and decided to try it out. Normally with these types of chicken sandwiches I am still pretty hungry so I opted for fries with it. I really wish I had gotten a side salad instead. The sandwich was so filling I ended up throwing away half of the medium fries!
Here I am steadily plugging along the path of a healthy body temple. "I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me." Philippians 4:13
Are you on a weight loss journey? How is it going for you? Have you tried the McDonald's Premium Chicken Sandwiches? What did you think of them?
