Moving Forward

I have decided to take my sad story off of here. I want to move forward. That awful stuff happened and it is over and I am not going to look back. All I see when I do that is a lot of bad memories. So, moving forward!

I am doing better than ever! Not my weight, but the rest of me is! I quit drinking soda about .. 3 years ago I think? Then sugar sort of naturally got cut out of my diet in the process. Then I cut out white flour about 2 years ago. And a year ago, I cut out processed ...

I am doing better than ever! Not my weight, but the rest of me is! I quit drinking soda about .. 3 years ago I think? Then sugar sort of naturally got cut out of my diet in the process. Then I cut out white flour about 2 years ago. And a year ago, I cut out processed foods. Cutting that junk out has made me feel so much better! My hair is even more shiny! This year? Bye bye booze!

I just took up running in October (2012) and I am loving it! There are so many 5K's out there that I am looking forward. I have a few on the bucket list...like the Princess Run at Disney World! And MAYBE..just maybe...the Spartan run (this terrifies me right now though!). Right now, I am training for the Run For Your Lives zombie 5K and I am pumped!

Lose this weight!



My Program:
No diet for me. I started eating whole, nonprocessed foods about a year ago. I do watch my tracker and make sure I don't go over in any category but I don't usually eat enough calories because whole foods are so filling. Beer on the other hand...

Right now, I am doing Jillian Michaels Revolution. I also LOVE Pilates

I just ordered the book Eat to Live - had borrowed the E-Version from the library but I'm old school and love my books. I also ordered the book "The Craving Brain" in the hopes that it will help me be more AF as the Allen Carr book didn't quite do it for me. I honestly don't want to be complety AF but want to get a handle on the compulsions/cravings.

PS - Sounds like you and your boyfriend have given each other great gifts.. his modelling how being AF is good and you showing him about good eating : )

Awesome! Glad I could be of some help! If you think about it the money will add up quickly. And then you will find yourself on a cruise in the Caribbean :D

My mama is a seamstress so I lucked out on that one! So far there have only been a few things that I've given away. Right now I've only lost enough weight to have to draw the drawstring tighter and things like that.

I've gotta watch the nuts! I go crazy and then all the sudden I've eaten two servings! Yikes! The are good though. I've actually been doing pretty good on protein the past few days. So maybe I was just in a funk or something.

Hope you are having a good Monday! And thanks for commenting on my blog!

Yes the book is one I bought a long while ago and I found it very preachy. I have not been AF as he suggests to do for life and I don't know that I could be, but definitely need to look at doing a long stretch again to get a handle on things and gain some perspective.

You are doing great!!

Thank you for your comment on my blog... Depression is difficult as I've suffered from it myself. I am always looking forward to the light and try to find it in every day by noticing the 'good' in every single day.

Wishing you a wonderful weekend!

Helene
