Beginning again...

Thursday, January 02, 2014

So, sometime during last summer I lost my way. I fell off program, and by the fall term I had fallen off healthy eating almost completely. I never got quite as bad as I used to be (no family bags of doritos with tubs of sour cream), but I wasn't living the healthy life I wanted. I know that the stress of school didn't help me control my eating habits, and I felt like I was working about 30 hours a day (ok, maybe it was only like 9-10 hours) which left me feeling too exhausted for working out. When all is said and done, I ended up gaining back about 15 pounds or so of the almost 40 pounds that I lost.

But I know that what I want is possible, I did it for several months last year, and it felt fantastic. So as cliched as it is, I'm making a new start with a new year. I have ordered a new batch of MF foods, but since I still have some foods from last time today is going to be the beginning of my second round with MF. I'm ready to get back to where I was last year, and then keep going, to hopefully reach my goal weight this year.

    Hello there!

    I stumbled across your blog from the Oregon team. I feel like we might have a lot in common. :)

    I lost about 35 lbs earlier this year after I graduated from college- gained a little bit back during the holidays and I'm ready for a new beginning.

    Maybe we could be motivational buddies!
