21 Day Fix: Day 10

SUGAR! I want SUGAR! This would make my day today.........
And yes, then it would make me sick tomorrow.

I'm trying to drink my organic green tea and have thought about eating some carrots---- but really who can make their brain think it's candy when it's a carrot. I'd rather not eat anything.

Oh man..... I hope this passes soon.

Good thing I'm laid up with a sprained ankle or I might take the dog on the walk and just happen to walk into the nearby 7-11 to browse and end up stuffing my face with 3 candy bars before check-out and 10 more on the way home that I "got for the kids" and then throw away the trash in a neighbors trash can to hide the evidence.

Yes, right now, I am that crazy.

Oh Sugar Craze...... GO AWAY!  Today, I will win this battle;)

21 Day Fix: Day 8

It's been a week of working to eat the right food, and right amounts of food while exercising.  Some days were tougher than others, but thankfully I can say it's getting easier.  My vocabulary has changed. Today these words are in my head, and I believe them.  

It may see silly, but as I look back at my lack of motivation this is a big deal for me.  It doesn't mean I've accomplished what I've set out to do, it just means that I'm fighting for it now.

I think a big part of it was that my Vitamin D was extremely low.  This helps you get up and go, and I wasn't.  I didn't have the umph, so to speak.  Well now I have the umph and no more excuses.

Today, I'm going to better myself.
Today, I'm going to fight.

21 Day Fix: Day 1

I've finally hit a point where I want to take losing weight seriously.  I know I'm accepted for who I am by my real friends and family.  I know I'm a treasured child of God.

But I'm seriously overweight. Fluffy my aunt calls it.  I like that term better.

So today, with the help of a new friend, encouragement from old friends- and the deep desire to want to be healthier I'm embarking on a 21 day challenge to change.

It's a beach body program that has 30 minute work outs daily, that are different for each day of the week. I almost died today I think. I'm seriously out of shape!!!!!  It was total body cardio, and although I followed the beginner person on the video, I did it. And I am proud!!

This program is not a fad diet it's a portion control way of eating to help re-train my silly brain what is a normal portion.  It's obviously a lot of veggies, and some fruits and lean proteins.  It has good grains/carbs and some nuts. it's a good program.

So--- it is just healthy eating.

I'm going to strive to post here during the 21 days to be accountable to myself.  I am 80 lbs over weight and it stops today.
