It’s happened to all of us I think, whether work gets too busy so you decrease your workouts, maybe the birth of his child leads you to sleep less so work out less, or you put on those “I’m in love” pounds.
However we get there, all of a sudden we realize we’re suddenly five or 10 pounds overweight!
I think the real success is the realization that you did gain five or 10 pounds. Because at that point, it’s doable. It can be caught and tended to.
One thing I did was start eating one small salad, extra, a day. And what I did was a few things: regulated my taste buds, made me crave less sugar fat or salt, added fiber to my diet so I felt more full, and reminded me that I needed to watch what I was eating. The salad looked a little something like this:
I think the trick is to make it small, very easy to make, very minimal ingredients, so that you can make it fast and it’s not a huge thing.
All I did was chop up half a head of romaine and a quarter of a pepper.
And then I made the dressing: Half a teaspoon of olive oil, a teaspoon of apple cider vinegar, dried Greek seasoning, a teaspoon of fresh salsa, and a quarter teaspoon of turmeric/salt.
I found a little container that keeps the dressing separate from the salad and keeps the salad cool. It’s good I like it for a small salad, but any container will do.
Would you add a small salad to your diet every day for a week? Have you before? Do you think it’s a good idea or not?
