My main goal this week is to clear my house of crap and starting learning to eat clean.
I have some motivation I have not had in a long time. My mom is taking me and my daughter to DisneyLand next August. Now normally I would go DisneyLand cool but never think about losing weight to go. However going to DL in August is going to be nightmare-ish if I am the same weight I am now. It is going to be HOT and if I lose weight I will be able to deal with the heat better and there is going to be a TON of WALKING! I love to walk but at my weight now my back has not been happy walking around. So for those reasons I am going to work hard on my goals.
I have some tricky parts though. My family...I LOVE them but they make it hard on me to eat healthy so I just have to not care what they think and know that if I am eating healthy then they should be too and if they really don't like it they can fend for themselves.
Reaching goal is my other tricky part. Number one I have never reached goal...always given up way before getting there but just because I am losing this weight to feel better when I go to DisneyLand does not mean I want to gain it back after going...so I really have to have some plans in place to maintain my loss and continue on my healthy plan after the trip.
I think that is why I am so excited about eating clean! I got a magazine from Costco last Thursday night and I am loving it. It is called "Clean Eating" and it seems like a simple concept. Eat foods in its most natural state or as close to it as possible. The magazine provides a lot of information and recipes. And it all sounds easy and delicious.
I am looking forward to this phase of my journey!
