So, as most of us fluffy women do this time of year and even some not so fluffy ones, I have been examining my eating and excercise habits.
I now have carrots, salad, oranges, tomatoes, and NO cookies in the house. I am controlling portion control as well. NO more baggies full of venision Jerky sitting by the computer to be engulfed into my mouth in less than a half hours time. I did allow myself 2 taco's at dinner on Monday laden with lettuce and tomato. Just the way I love my taco's..yum yum.
I know I need to excercise more as well, that part will be coming. I want to work on strength training and toning. And work in some cardio too.
I know all the right answers to be healthy, but often put them to the wayside. I feel better already after about a week at this portion control and healthy food choices thing. I am reaching for an orange instead of yet another bowl of cereal. Eating 2 pieces of toasted raisin bread, instead of my normal 4. I was starting to get my constant indigestion and heatburn that comes from bad eating and excess weight. YUCK.
I had some friends give me a stack of pants as payment to keep being their friend (long story ask me about it, its funny maybe I should blog about that too!). Well the pants fit, most of them. AND they were a size BIGGER than I was currently wearing. So, something had to give!
The scale already shows about a 10 lb weight lose. But I have always been able to drop these first 10-20 lbs very fast...then I level out. When I start adding in bad foods again and beef up my strength training/muscle building excercises. THEN I get stuck! I stop I give up. I feel better and I want the GOOD food.
I am going on vacation in August (most likely) and would like to look 1/2 way decent in swimsuit pics! SOO, here we are trying to get back into what used to be my fat jeans and out of the WAY TOO FAT JEANS!
