Coming Up With a New Nutrition Plan before the Upcoming Year

Eat, Food, Vitamins, Vegetables

Heyyyyyyyyyyyy!

So, I know it is the weekend and I normally do not post on the weekends, but tada I am here! I decided to post a little something I have been thinking about and wanted to share with everyone and see if anyone else is having the same thoughts as me, or wants to share their own experience, etc.

 

I have decided that before the upcoming year, I want to change my eating habits (once again) not because of anything bad for say, but because I want something new and different. I don’t mean I want to go on a diet or anything, I just want to manage my eating a lot more strict, but not so strict where I can’t stick with it. I have been doing IIFYM, and I enjoy it and will stick with it for the time being, because it works for me. I don’t know what I am trying to do exactly yet, I just have a few goals in mind that I am challenging myself to do to see how it works out along the way. My reasoning for something new is because I just want more variety & consistency – I don’t want to go so long and then give up, or stray down the wrong path. I want something to keep me disciplined.. so I have downloaded the calorie tracker on my phone and I am going to invest into a food scale as well, and I am going to embark on this journey with a new mindset, new goals, and a new attitude.

 

Does anyone else feel the way I feel about this time, where they just want to embark on a new journey fitness/health wise, even if things seem to be going “okay”, you just want something new and fresh, something more challenging, maybe more strict, possibly more time consuming, but you want this because you have an end goal in mind and are willing to do whatever it takes to meet it? I have my exercise regimen the way I want it before deciding to join CrossFit again, but I want my nutrition to meet the same standards, and so I am going to find something that gives me the pleasure and satisfaction I need in order to make me happy – By strict I don’t mean cutting my calories to like 500, I am not talking about extremes, just something more or less different but the same.. (confusing, I know)

 

I think once I come up with something I want to do (an overall plan) it will be grand, life changing, long term and very rewarding in the end. This post was to just my mind jogging and thoughts moving around, thanks for reading.

Hello! College graduate in exercise science and ACSM Certified Personal Trainer. My blog has all kinds of fun topics, something for everyone who is anyone that involves themselves with fitness. I like to think of fitness as a confidence booster, something to make us feel good and look good & pushes us to do things that make us feel more productive, unstoppable and stronger mentally and physically. My blog focuses on building people, and helping people see their true potential, while also sharing my journey with workouts, competing with powerlifting, and sharing how to's on workouts, so you step inside the gym with more knowledge. I don't know everything but I am on a voyage to build my character, my strength and work on my weaknesses --- with awesome people in my corner who support me and my goals. I plan on being your cheerleader, friend, coach and trainer all-in-one and most of all, I want to be your listener, the person who can listen and gain more knowledge about you and learn what makes fitness important to you; what's your why! (Your why will carry you to the finish line). It's important to have purpose for something, because you will need that purpose when you start to give up on yourself or want to quit. "Don't let the fire that guides you, dim" - Shay-lon Besides the fitness stuff, I reside in Ohio, love dogs and love pizza. Typical 26 year old trying to build an empire that brings out the best in others and makes me the best person I can be in all aspects in my life. Before I die, I want a reason to live, and I was given that reason each day I am able to wake up --- I have learned to not take life for granted and to explore as much as possible because to live with zero regrets would be fantastic!

  1. I started a radical diet in 2013. Basically, I eat a balanced whole food, plant based diet, avoid highly processed and junk food, and I try to not eat more than I burn up in a day. People say I’m crazy but it’s helped me bring sexy back.

      1. Okay, 70 percent isn’t bad. I can handle that. Yeah, plant based would be hard for me, honestly. I don’t think I want to be that strict – it wouldn’t be long term because I would fail.

      2. In all seriousness, I would have been described as a “picky eater.” (I preferred the term super taster but nobody listens to me.) I had a very narrow diet. After going plant-based – it was more of a lifestyle decision than a diet decision – I have started eating way more stuff. I continue to shock people. Of all the people who would mostly like fail at a plant based diet it was me. Still going strong.

      3. That is interesting, but means you are well disciplined because it would be difficult for some (like myself). I think I have been curious about going plant based but I know I wouldn’t be able to sustain it for the long term because of my choices lol. 😀 but I know many people have gone plant based.
