Ok, so I logged on today, and was notified (in that nice, but strangely reprimanding way that Spark has) that it has been 54 days since my last log on...SERIOUSLY?? Where does the time go?? I was doing SO well, too! I guess that means that I had better get my rear in gear and start making myself accountable again.
The whole reason that I logged in today, is that I have a doctor's appointment in 22 days, and my weight needs to be where it was last year at the VERY least. While this may sound strange, it's just something that I feel needs to be accomplished. Not to mention that I also have a 5k that same week, and I haven't been to the gym in 3 weeks! UGH!!
This whole reason that I joined Spark was that i was gaining weight at a rapid pace with out any change to diet and exercise. I'm afraid that something is seriously wrong. So, in order to figure out what's going on, I scheduled the doctor's appointment. Hopefully, something will come of it, and not just the response "it's your age, dear..." because this ISN'T normal.
So, step one, vegan, mostly raw diet. It turns out that I have food sensitivities that i wasn't aware of; and since I LOVE cheese and beef, this is going to be an interesting transition....
Step two, 5 days a week in the gym, no more than 45 minutes a day. Doable, right?
Step three...and the hardest one...no alcohol for 60 days. WAHHH!!! No more wine!!!
I can do this...
