Motivation: Spring... in Paris...

Friday, March 01, 2013

I've finally come to the realization that the need to incorporating good eating and activity back into my life is a MUST. I've been completely overwhelmed with work and with our adoption of a 14 year old daughter, but not making time for myself is not doing myself any favours.

So I'm back and have a cruise and a trip to Paris at the end of April as a motivator to keep me on track in these difficult first days. My fridge is stocked. The treadmill has been dusted off. The only thing standing between me and success is me... and now that me, myself, and I have come to agreement that the time is NOW, there should be no issues. Not sure if my hubby is with me on this or not, but I've told him what I'm doing and he is supportive of helping me cook.

I'm doing what I know works well for me. 1600-1800 calories per day, lots of fruits, veggies, proteins, healthy fats, complex carbs. I'm going to start getting up a little earlier to do exercise when I can and will do it at night when I can't. I'm considering joining a class, but will have to see how that fits in an already tight schedule - it may be that early morning missions work best! I forgot to weigh in this morning, so my goal calculations will have to wait for tomorrow!

Looking forward to reconnecting with and supporting old friends and making new ones.
