Let's Get Real for a Minute

  Confession... the past 2 months has been full of complete laziness.  I got lazy with my diet for the whole month of December but jumped back in there December 26th so for the most part, I'm good there.  I need to watch the carbs a little more (knowing myself anyway) and I still need to learn to incorporate veggies into my diet more...I'm really bad about that.  But in regards to exercise...yikes!  Let's just say it's been non-existent.

  Looking at the calendar, I am less than 2.5 months away from my one year surgery anniversary and 3 months from turning 30 (blah).  I still have about 8lbs or so to hit my -100lbs mark but I have a good 20-30lbs to reach my ultimate goal.  I know it's a lofty goal to say that I want to lose 20-30 lbs in 2.5 months.  So while I still have that in my mind, I need to get back to being consistent with my exercise.  That means, I have to start getting up before 5am again.  I know I can do this.  I did it for months.  I have a treadmill in my spare room and 10lb weights.... what is holding me back other than just being lazy? Nothing!  I need to do some toning and work on my cardio and strength training.  No time like the present...right?

  I'm going to start looking for a 5k that I want to participate in either around my "surgiversary" or my birthday.  I need something to work toward.

  I'd really like to have another photoshoot done since we haven't had one since July and I've lost 45lbs or so since then so that's a big difference.  Unfortunately, I can't afford the photographers that I love lol so we'll see.

Anyway...that's all I've got to say about that.


  1. 1. December, hard month -- really really hard
    2. 30 is great! 40 even better! my 20's sucked :D embrace the 30's it's when you truly find yourself and in your 40's you let everyone else know you could not care less about their opinions (I'm wondering what the 50's will bring :D)

  2. :) December is a hard month. I feel like January is almost equally as hard in the aspect that you really have to jump start your body back. It's not just a matter of saying "I'm going to eat right today". I think it has to be something where you try really hard for several days to rid your body of the carbs and almost put yourself into ketosis so that the cravings and hunger are not there mentally or physically. That's where I'm at right now anyway.
    I hope 30 is great.... I've got a lot of high expectations anyway :)
