Over the weekend I talked about a new challenge and focus, well here it is. I’m going back to the basics. I have steadily gained weight over the last six months. I’m about 10 pounds heavier than this time last year. And even though I work out pretty consistently 4 to 5 times a week it’s not enough . I’ve let my diet slide and I can tell EVERYWHERE! My pants are tight, sluggish, bloated and it’s effecting my overall mood. I stepped on the scale this morning and it just hit me like a ton of bricks. I had been thinking about this for a while, and I would be really good for a few days but then let things slide on weekends. I know it doesn’t sound like much, but it has all added up to where I am now. The thing is a I like eating healthy, but I have definitely have my weaknesses…french fries, desserts and wine. 😦 I’ve never been 100 percent Paleo, but it’s time to get back to the basics and lose this weight.
I’m almost 40 and I want to feel great, amazing, over-the-top when I turn 40. I want to feel like that all the time and for whatever reason/reasons I have let things slide here and there. I need to get back to my “feel great weight.” I follow carrotsncake.com and Tina talks about her feel great weight. I was there and I want to get back there.
So…. for the next 30 days 1/27 – 2/27 I am recording all of my eats and exercise to keep myself accountable. I promise to get better at my food pics. I’m hoping, praying this little challenge kicks my butt into gear.
So this my challenge – get back to clean, healthy eating, minimize sweets and wine and increase my number of workouts and intensity. Here I go! And because I love Jillian Michaels I needed to include some of her good quotes… cue the Rocky music!
