86 days to go...
Wednesday, July 13, 2011
My husband & I are taking a belated honeymoon cruise and we leave in 86 days. If that isn't motivation to get in shape, I don't know what is. I have been struggling with the same 20 pounds for the last 2 years and I want to be done with them. So... My goal is to lose as many inches and pounds as I can before we set sail. I know it probably won't be much, but I want to feel more comfortable in a bathing suit while on the beaches & the decks. I don't want to constantly wonder if I should cover up more so I don't gross other people out. And, quite honestly, I want to be able to wear a bikini.
Something I realized today, though, is that I need to change my eating habits. I've been mostly ignoring the Spark meal plans because there's so many fruits & vegetables that it's almost out of our budget. Instead I've been making protein shakes for 1 or 2 meals a day. What I realized is this: I can't possibly go on a cruise and maintain my weight loss if I don't know how to eat proper portions and foods. Somehow I'm going to add a little more money to the grocery budget so I can use the Spark meal plans and relearn how to eat properly.
