Day 1 of 117
Monday, August 31, 2015
so i know 117 days is a random number but if you count that means this challenge will end on christmas because i want to get thinner for the holidays and start the new year out as a new me! So these last 30 days has been a learning experience. i struggled with eating right and not wanting to get up to work out, but i made it through and even though i know i will have those same struggles for probably the rest of my life i know that i am growing stronger, and learning to fight those urges. Been real stressed the last few days so really through my diet out the window but I'm back on track and not looking back. I'm going grocery shopping today and i think I'm gonna try some new recipes for my meal planning, maybe some stuffed peppers or a new casserole. waking up for workout wasn't so hard and even though i didnt workout for several days i could tell i was able to more jumping, punch faster, go deeper in my squats, and hold my planks longer. I know this is a life change and not just a diet or fad and i feel like that's what makes it harder. because when u think of a diet you know its for a week, a month, or maybe a year, but when u are changing your life its forever and oddly that seems scarier to me. i know one day I'm gonna look back and think "how could i eat that?" or even " i cant believe i let myself get that big", and honestly that makes me excited because i know I'm ready for change . so anyways my challenge this time is all about getting as close to 200 as possible, and i know that's alot of weight (47lbs) but that's why I'm saying as close, because if i lose 10,20,30 or even the whole 47lbs ill be happy and proud! I'm also taking down my workouts to 5 times a week so that my body can rest!
