It’s that time again…time to get back on track with my weight loss. Nothing more motivating then being told that you look like your’re pregnant right? Yeah well…
Over the past few weeks of me healing from surgery, I have felt the pounds add back on. It’s so very depressing, because I’ve worked so hard (well maybe not so hard) on losing the weight. My biggest thing is working out. I know in my head that weight loss is primarily off of eating. I know this but yet, for me if I’m not working out I feel like I’m not doing anything.
So at this point, I’m starting small…because I can’t just dive back into Turbo Kick and my ChaLean Extreme. I was thinking what moves can I do that require little use of my right arm/shoulder. I’ve come up with a list of different moves to do. I have a step, so for now I can use that as cardio…make up my own moves to some music. That’s the plan for working out.
For eating it is about going back to basics. For me, lower carbs work well, but I have a hard time eating enough and often enough. I am a pickyeater so when I’m trying to lose weight I don’t have a lot of variety. I stick with boiled eggs, salads, chicken and veggies, hamburger patties, thosekind of things. So for now it’s all about getting that set to become habit, and kicking a very big habit…sodas. I’ve noticed that I’ve picked up a few lbs and my waistline is getting larger, and I know that sodas are the culprit. I’ve realized that I’ve been guzzling them like crazy lately and I must stop it now!!! It’s a very hard habit to break, but it’s all about taking small measures.
So here’s the plan…I’m going into bootcamp mode (as much as I can anyway). You can make huge strides in 30 days. So I’m taking it 30 days at a time. I’m starting with cutting back the sodas–the weekends are deadly for me and sodas! Drinking more water is the key to so much (my skin looks so bad to me lately) so that has to be the very first thing I tackle. Because let’s face it…you are what you eat and if you’re putting in nothing but sugar in your body you will only gain weight!!! I know this, I swear I do but those Mt Dews taste soooo good!!! lol I have to refocus my thinking. I want a better body more than I want that soda. So that’s where it’s beginning for me. **of course as I type this I’m at work and I’m staring at a sunkist, and it being the holiday weekend, this will start next week!** I’m making the plan, putting it on paper, and am holding myself accountable. Quite frankly, I gotta give myself a big incentive, I’m not quite sure what it is yet…but I gotta make it worthwile.
I’ve been watching the newest informercials for The Firm and it really inspired me. Not to by the product, but that you can make big changes in 30 days. It’s all about being committed to your plan. That’s what it’s gonna take from me. Commitment and dedication. I’m ready to take on the challenge. Stay tuned for more! I have got to get my body back, I have to get ME back. I owe it to myself.
