importance of Healthy Breakfast

Is My Healthy Breakfast Not the Most Important Meal of the Day?

I’ve always been a “breakfast is the most important meal of the day” person. Even in my last year of high school when I was skipping breakfast every morning so I could get fifteen more minutes of sleep, I still believed it was the most important.

I’d always been taught that it was the best meal for keeping your weight under control, for getting your energy up at the start of the day and for just doing things right overall. Study after study has backed up my belief, so I’ve never had any reason to doubt it…until now.

Forgiving Myself for Eating Everything

How I’m Using January to Forgive Myself for Eating Everything in December

I’m not proud of the way I handled myself in December. I went in with a very reasonable plan. I even stuck to the plan to a certain extent. I told myself that I could taste treats within reason, have decent portions of rich meals when I wasn’t picking them for myself (for example, when I was at a friend or family’s house), and eat healthy the rest of the time. I also told myself I’d keep up with my exercises to make sure I’m doing as much damage control as possible. Christmas day had no rules.

Did I keep up with the plan? Not really. I started off very well. I was very proud of myself right up until Christmas day. Then, everything fell apart. I think it happened because I was just so tired from everything throughout the holidays that I gave up. All the visits, shopping, decorating, baking and everything else took a toll on me that I hadn’t expected. Once Christmas was over, I was utterly exhausted.

Surprising weight loss inspiration

Finding Weight Loss Inspiration in the Most Interesting Places

It wasn’t until I started blogging that I really realized the difference that inspiration and motivation makes to weight loss. It doesn’t do it on its own, of course. If I sit at home eating cupcakes and feeling inspired, it’s not like the fat just melts off my body. It takes more than that.

Still, all those other steps that I take find their beginnings with inspiration and motivation. As a result, I’ve started to keep my eyes open to make sure that I see inspiring things when they’re there. Once I see them, I let them motivate me.

Changing Habits for Weight Loss

Losing Weight Means Changing Habits

We might not like to hear it, but if we really want to lose weight and keep it off, we need to think about changing habits central to our lives. This doesn’t just mean changes for a weekend during a fad diet. It means we need to stop doing some of the things that are making us gain the weight and start doing something better.

It’s not just me who thinks this way. There was a study from McGill University that showed that when people made behavioral changes, they lost 10 percent of their body mass. Changing habits is not about counting carbs, cutting sugar or anything extreme. Instead, it’s about repairing the things we’re doing to ourselves that cause weight problems.
