The Bane of My Existence–Nutrition

zone-dietThe last few months I have been unhappy with my looks.

Mainly the fact I’ve gained some fat.

And, of course, in my belly area where women gain fat.

I lost so much on The Zone Diet a year ago that I purposely tried to fatten up.

And fatten up I did.

Now, I want to lose a bit of fat but not too much.

And I’ve been struggling to figure out how to do that.

So this last week I’ve been devouring articles on what to do–especially those for CrossFitters.

And I’ve come to the conclusion I need to go back on the Zone Diet. The Zone Diet is the idea that you balance proteins, carbohydrates, and fats and eat at regular intervals so your blood sugar stays even–and hence you are always in the Zone!

I’m not exactly thrilled about it.

In fact, that’s an understatement.

But, overall it’s what I need to do to fuel my body for CrossFit AND get me the look I want.

So re-enter My Fitness Pal and measuring cups and fruits and vegetables.

Exit sugar and peanut butter in great quantities.

Re-enter strict meal times.

Exit brownies, ice cream, and candy.

I’m about to embark on an Olympic Weightlifting journey as well so this has become imperative in my life.

Plus, I’m tired of worrying about what I’m gonna eat and if it’s gonna put weight on me.

Which is what I liked most about the Zone Diet.  I didn’t have to think about it.

So here I go.  Down the Yellow-Brick Road…Only I don’t have a cool scarecrow, lion friend, or tin man to accompany me!
