New year and re-solutions

Wednesday, January 02, 2013

So it is a new year.

Last year I dropped from 85 kgs to 78 and to be very honest, I am ridiculously proud of myself, as one should be in these circumstances, as with it came me fitting into a size jean I last wore when I was 14. It is after all 11 years later.

I got married and my corset and skirt for the wedding had to be adjusted 3 times because I just kept getting smaller. Now is that something to gloat about or what? Yay!

So this year?
I will revisit the solutions I know work for me.

I will have a bikini body. For the first time in my life, I want to go to the beach and wear a bikini, not wrap myself in a sarong, hoping nobody realizes that the one piece I am wearing is struggling to control the girls.

I will follow a vegan diet, as I have noticed that I do feel best when I have no meat (after being a vegetarian for 3 years, duh!) and no diary in my system. It is really sad to me that the fitness magazines available here have no vegetarian options, not to mention vegan menu ideas. I feel like they are saying that if you are not eating grilled salmon and egg whites, you can't be healthy.

I will stick to my trainer's plan. Yeah, that means being in the gym for 1.5 hours a day, but like one of my fitness inspiration pictures on my wall/ vision board says: "Sweat like a pig, look like a fox'"
This year, I will be a foxy lady.

I know the new year brings a psychological new starts, and that you can start whenever you want. But the 2 day break from work is giving me the time to sit and plan my meals (which I will be doing next, after I get off the internet) for both myself and hubby. I think I will also take a photo each month, so I can see my actual progress visually.

Sparkpeople, get ready to root me on and see me as your next success story.
