After a slightly depressing day yesterday I made a decision to change! I'm struggling with the last few pounds here and after trying on my swim suit yesterday, and looking exactly the same as I did last year, I'm finally going to take action on some things I've been wanting to do anyways!
First up I need heavier weights! And since I really don't think joining a gym is an option for me, since I wasted all my previous memberships, I plan to start saving for the adjustable dumbbells I've been wanting and buy them before I had planned. Originally they were going to be a gift to myself for reaching my final goal. Now they are going to be a tool for reaching my final goal!
Next up I'm cleaning up my diet. I got the "Eat Clean Diet" book for Christmas and had read about half of it till last night. I finished reading it last night, made notes on some recipes and meals that sounded good and have made some other notes and lists to help me for reference till I get the hang of it. Bu-buy processed crap! Honestly I don't do too too bad right now. But I could do a whole lot better! I already plan everything I eat the day before and pack up my food to take to work and schedule snack times etc. So really my big change will be in the food I'm actually packing. Well some of it. I don't plan to be as strict as they tell you to be in the book though. They say you can splurge "once in a while." And really I need several per week. Chocolate, kettle corn popcorn
, a McDonald's ice cream cone here and there and of course my splurge meal each week that is usually pizza!
I'm hoping that cleaning up my diet will also help me increase my protein intake to help build some muscle.
If these two things don't help me reach my fitness goals then I don't know what will!?
