East Less, Move More


East Less, Move More

Bfast 001One of the main components to losing weight is a simple theme that I like to follow: Eat Less, Move More! There are quite a bit of diets out there for us to follow; believe me, I've tried a lot of them. But all diets come back to one thing: Eat Less, Move More! Another trick I learned years ago was to use smaller plates. This morning I made a two egg omelet with spinach and used a small plate which made my portions look enormous.

Sometimes weight loss and exercise is just an exercise in changing one's mindset. Just like changing the size of my breakfast plate gave me the illusion that I was eating more when I was actually eating less.

Chris_bikeDeep down inside, I think we all know what we need to do in order to take the weight off. Lots of times it just comes down to changing our mindset and being around people who are supportive.

That is why our VRide is so good for so many people. We can work at our own pace and receive all the encouragement that each one of us needs in order to feel comfortable and affirmed.

Today I walked 3 miles and rode the stationary bike for 15 miles. It feels good to take care of myself!

Hi Chris--I love your video and thought of it this morning as I rode the stationary bike. I'm always amazed by how exercise empowers--when I challenge myself in exercise I gain an emotional, mental and physical strength.\r\n\r\nThat omelet looks awesome! One of my favorite lunches is scrambled eggs on a bed of asparagus. :)

Hi, Trish...always great to hear from you and thanks for your kind words! Especially while I work I now find myself thinking more about moving rather than sitting still. What is so great about what we are doing with VRide is that we are all in this together at our own pace. \nOn a side note, I prefer it when my scale is broken! :)
