It's so funny to read my previous posts. Every time I start on a "diet", I fail without a doubt. I've spent the last several months trying to "undo" 26 years of dieting. Then, for some reason, something hit me. ONLY I can change the boat I'm in. I can't wait for a magic pill, or someone else to push me. I have to want it badly enough. After years of my husband telling me "it's dedication and consistency, It's in your head, etc". I have finally agreed to give his recommendations a shot. I figure what do I have to loose!! Ha Ha!! So I promised to his 90 day challenge. It's only eating clean, non processed foods, no sugar and working out. I have to do cardio like 6x a week and weight train 3x a week. How hard can this be.
I've always started "eating clean" on a Monday and by Thursday have found myself craving all the things I can't have. Well this time I started on a Tuesday and I was petrified on Friday that I was going to blow it. But I had every step of my day planned out and made it through. I have a long way to go, but am very relaxed this time. I'm loving the exercise I'm doing. We run at a park (which was an old dump) that has a 1.25 mile path up and down steep incline hills. Then one day we'll bike the hills. Man, the biking is kick butt!! We do a street run 1x or 2x and I do boot camp with friends 1x. So I definitely switch it up. I also am amazed at how good food is without all the junk on it. A plain sweet potato, or tuna out of the can. I really think I can do this. I want to journal in my spark blog on my progress because I really don't want it on Facebook. Too many sabotagers out there!! Yay for me!!
