Ok, so I'm back.
My weight crept up to 138 and I'm noticing my pants are very uncomfortably tight, I kind of have a soft belly, and I'm just not happy with myself. So, I'm renewing my fitness vows and going hard this time.
I'm changing everything I knew. I used to rest on the belief that it's 80% what you eat, and since I ate healthy probably 80% of the time, I didn't worry. But, I'm 28, almost 29 now, and I think my metabolism is dipping.
I'm going with bodybuilding.com's Jamie Eason plan and adding heavy lifting in instead of focusing on cardio. I want a fitness model body. I will eat healthy, and stop treating myself all the time.
I started a new job, and we have donuts every Monday and Friday, free lunches 1-2x a week, candy on the welcome desk and in the break room... it's the poisonous apple at every turn.
That's my thinking. It's about willpower, and it's about avoiding that shiny apply that made Adam and Eve fall from grace. It looks good and probably tastes good, but it's bad for me, and takes me away from what I want.
My arms still hurt from Jamie Eason's workout two days ago. Ha! The first phase is 4 days of lifting and zero cardio. I may add SOME cardio.
This all started because I didn't fit into my prom dress when I went back to visit an old photographer.
But it's so hard. I don't know how I'm going to do it, working 9-6 or 7 (8 last night) and then having my dogs to take care of. But, I'm doing good at avoiding office foods.
