Motivational Monday: Imagine the Long Term Outcomes of Your Diet

Motivational Monday: Imagine the Long Term Outcomes of Your Diet

Video Transcript

Hey guys, Aarn Farmer here with MySugarFreeJourney.com and we are starting something new today.  We talk a lot about on this blog about
different ways to lose weight.  The different biochemical things that happen as you as you eating low-carb, high-fat. The different reasons for for eating that way to lose weight and my own personal journey as I’ve lost about 190 pounds so far eating this way but we don’t talk enough about what’s going on between the ears of someone who is struggling to lose weight and I think I wanted to start something new.
These Motivational Monday videos will be used to talk about what can get you motivated.  How you can improve your mind set to begin to want to lose weight.
Let me ask you a question have you ever heard of someone that takes a shower everyday and then they skip a day for whatever reason and then that person deciding, “oh my goodness, I’ve skipped a day of showering! I might as well skip the next shower and the next shower and the next!”  Then they don’t take a shower for months!  You’ve never heard of someone doing that.  That’s ridiculous!
But have you ever heard of someone going on a diet and then they cheat or something goes wrong and then they say “Well because I skipped yesterday I might as well skip tomorrow too and cheat again” and then they are off their diet for months at a time.  Why why does that happen?
Well how can someone you know skip a shower and go right back into their regular pattern but if someone skips a day on their diet they can’t seem to pull themselves back to the diet.  What’s going on there? I think the reason is because we know the benefits of showering every day and we know what’s going to happen to us if we if we don’t take that shower.  We’re going to stink, people aren’t going to hang out with us and things aren’t going to go well for socially.
But I think a lot of times we don’t associate the long-term health risk of having a cheat day or of eating the wrong types of food with the long-term risk of what we’re eating today right in front of us.  So I want to challenge you to do something today or the next time you feel yourself slipping. The next time that you are wanting to change the way that you eat or to slip back into your old habits and eat the eat the foods that that got you where you are now which is fat, sick, tired and nearly dead.
When you get in that place I want you to imagine the long-term risk that you are undertaking when you eat those the crappy foods that made you sick and fat. I want you to think about the high blood pressure it’s going to give you. I want you think about the type 2 diabetes is going to put you at risk for.  I wanted you to think about the joint pain that you’re going to feel as those grains are going to cause inflammation.  I want you to think about the cardiovascular disease that it’s going to cause. I want you to think about those long-term risks that go along with eating the crappy SAD (Standard American Diet) and imagine those things.
Don’t just think about the carbs that are right in front of you but begin to think long-term.  Begin to think about what’s going to happen as you continue on down this road.  And if you do mess up or you have a cheat day, things go wrong or whatever, I want you to think about my shower example and get right back on the horse. Get right back into your diet!
Don’t use the fact that you cheated yesterday as an excuse for cheating today.  You chose yesterday but it’s in the past, it’s gone.  You get right back on the horse today.  If you’re relying on just willpower to do this diet, your willpower will run out.  What you want to rely on is a strong mental picture of what eating a Standard American Diet does versus what eating a low-carb high-fat diet does for your health and sometimes that’s all that you’ve got to rely on.
This was Motivational Monday! I appreciate you watching and we will talk again next week.  Bye!

All Real Food, Keto, and Paleo Coupons in One Place!

All Real Food, Keto, and Paleo Coupons in One Place!

As most of my longtime readers know, I primarily blog over at Grocery Shop for FREE at The Mart, a blog that focuses on how to save money on your groceries when you shop at Walmart.  My wife and I have been an avid couponers for the better part of a decade now and credit couponing for keeping a roof over our heads when the economy blew up in 2008.  The only downside of eating the cheapest food possible was that was pretty much when I started my little journey to 400 lbs.  Good times.

Now that I don’t eat carbs and have switched to a LCHF/Keto/Paleo, that doesn’t mean that I can no longer save money on my groceries.  There are always great coupons and smartphone rebates available for foods in my diet and I use them every week.  I thought it would be helpful for the readers of this blog to put together a list of all the available coupons and smartphone rebates you can use on real food like meat, cheese and dairy.

If you are new to couponing, there is a great ebook you can pick up here that explains how to do it and if you have never used the smartphone apps, they are pretty simple.  Just use the links below to download the app to your phone then after you buy the products you will upload the receipt to the app and you will get that money back.  Easy peasy.  You can also use the coupon database to look up coupons as well.

If you have any questions, please reach out as I love to help.  If you find this helpful or see somewhere I can improve it, please leave a comment below.  Thanks!

4/5 Weightloss Wednesday: Losing Weight at a Snail’s Pace

4/5 Weightloss Wednesday: Losing Weight at a Snail’s Pace

It’s time for Weightloss Wednesday!  And yes I know that this is going up on Thursday but sometimes life is crazy.  This week we are down to 211.8 lbs which means I am down 188.2 lbs.  Holy cow it is taking FOREVER to get these last 15 lbs off.  It’s like it knows how close I am to the end and just wants to dr-a-a-a-a-a-g it out.  I guess as long as it continues to come off, I don’t really care how long it takes but I sure would like to hit that 210 mark so I can focus on the final run to 200.

As for my meals, the intermittent fasting I’m doing is going well.  On my work days I usually only eat one meal a day and a little sugar free dessert just before my shift starts.  Although I’ve been considering cutting the dessert to see if that speeds things up.

As for exercise, I’m in the second week of doing the Swing Lean program with my 30 lb kettlebell.  I gotta say, it works.  I haven’t been doing it long enough to see any physical changes but just based on how sore I am after my workouts, I’d say I’ll have the upper legs and lower back of an Adonis in a few months.  Of course it will be hidden under a bunch of loose skin so who knows if anyone will ever see it.

So everything is going according to plan.  How is it going with you?  Let me know in the comments!
