8 Week Get Healthy Plan- Intro

Welcome to the NoWayThatsHealthy 8 Week Get Healthy Plan!
Before I start with the plan for week 1 i’ll give a little intro about the plan and how you can be one of the winners of a healthy goodie package.
What is the 8 Week Get Healthy Plan?
I am sure most of us have tried those 7 day diets or any of those quick fix diet plans to lose weight fast. Do they work? Sometimes. Most of the time you are starving yourself and after initially losing some weight we go back to real life and eat like we did before which ends up with us gaining the weight right back. 
The way to lose weight and keep it off is not through any of the quick fixes. They will simply not last.
In this plan we will make one change to our lifestyle per week. That way you will get accustomed to the change you are making and be able to stick to it even after the 8 weeks are up.
Then why is it called Get Healthy Plan and not Lose Weight Plan?
If you plan to change any part of your lifestyle and it is only for weight loss, it will not happen. You need to do it for your health. Losing weight is just a great outcome of the changes you’ve made. 
Anyone who changes these things will definitely start feeling better too. You won’t be as tired and you will have more energy. Like I said, weight loss is just a great bonus 🙂
How do I win a healthy goodie package?
I have collected some of my favorite healthy products and put them in a package to give out to those who are active during this plan. I will choose somewhere from 2-4 readers who are involved in the plan. You can be involved by commenting on the blog and/or facebook page throughout the 8 weeks. Posting how things are going, ideas, struggles etc. Sharing this plan with your friends can help too. Basically, the more you are involved, the more likely you are to get the package plus see results from changing to better habits.
Should I weigh myself before the 8 weeks?
I rather not have this plan focused on weight. When we look at the scale it can mess with our mind too much and prevent us from doing what we need. Therefore, I suggest not weighing yourself. You will notice results in the way your clothing fits and the compliments your friends give you!
Are there any other suggestions to make this plan work to its fullest?
There are several things:
  • Remember this phrase- Start small and stay consistent. The key to this really is to take baby steps and stick to them.
  • Keep a journal and at the end of each day or week write down how you did. You can do this anywhere from a notebook, a draft in your email, or right here on the blog in the comments section.
  • If you didn’t do well today, get right back up and keep going. Just because you may have slipped doesn’t mean you shouldn’t get right back up. Getting upset with yourself doesn’t make anything better. Accept that it happened and move on. 
Of course, if you have any other questions please feel free to leave a comment or email me using the contact me tab above. The post for Week 1 will be up later this week so stay tuned!

  1. I am all for joining!
    To Chava Malka- I believe can definitely do it if you're pregnant; let's see what healthy lifestyle behavior Rena has in mind; you may have to adapt some of them, but as a whole, there's no better time to be healthy than when you're pregnant!

  2. Yes you can do this! This plan is not about starving or doing anything that nuts that it shouldn't be safe for those who are pregnant. But as always do what you feel is right for yourself and when I get to the part about exercise, don't do anything that can harm you. Feel good!!
