My birthday was on Saturday. I realized I had planned to be at least 1/2 way to my goal weight by now. And I am exactly where I was then. Hmm... apparently not doing much or doing nothing at all still doesn't work.
So here I am, just turned 28 and it's time to do something about this extra weight. I did my first day of P90X last night (admittedly the "lean" version, which is hopefully less brutal but still effective). It was more of a work out than I think I've done all year. If I was honest, it did feel good to be really working for it, but I still dread working out. I just don't wanna... (boo hoo, right?). Well, I'm going to do it anyway. Even though today I'm sore, and I'm tired from staying up too late, I'm going to push through day 2. No options, no excuses.
Also, I found a magazine last night with a yummy eating plan complete with grocery list. It plans out breakfast, lunch, dinner, and 2 snacks every day, each one different, for a full 7 days! So far they're easy to prepare, use "everyday" ingredients, and are surprisingly yummy! Each meal is approx 400 calories, and each snack 150 for a daily total of about 1500 calories. Here's a link to the article if you're interested:
If the link doesn't work you should be able to google "Ladies Home Journal Fast Food Diet" and find it (don't worry, no fast food involved, it means the meals are quick to prepare!). Oh, and you'll want to add honey, salsa, cinnamon, and olive oil to the list if you don't have some already on hand... I've noticed some of the recipes call for those ingredients but I didn't see them on the list.
Anyway, time to get out of here and get ready to work out again tonight. Gotta earn my gold star (seriously, I got glod star stickers to put on the calendar)!
