Week one is complete! If I have to asses how I did I would say I did pretty darn good. Kept up on my work outs, kept to the smaller cup of tea, no crap food, but I did eat way more fruit than I should have. This week I will be focusing on the fruit intake. It’s important not to replace one old vice with a new one. You are just creating a new bad habit. While fruit is healthy and you shouldn’t be afraid to eat it, it’s still sugar. Combining protein with good fats and healthy carbs, fruits and veggies are my carbs, and making sure you have a healthy balance of each you should do well.
The last few days, mostly the last 24 hours have been difficult. We are in the midst of potty training our very head strong 2 year old, transitioned her to a toddler bed (naps and bed time have been challenging) and she took a pretty nasty tumble down the basement steps yesterday. My nerves were so fried by 7pm last night. I was really wanting a little tequila or bourbon. If it weren’t for this little journey that I asked all of you to follow me on I would have added a long pour of bourbon in my tea last night. Again, thanks to all of you, you keep me honest. I think that also says a lot to having some accountability when making a change to your lifestyle. If there is no accountability then there is no consequence to failure. Why do you think Weight Watchers is so successful? They offer support and accountability! When this 30 days is over you all will be looking for the results not the excuses. And so will I.
As I prep to stay the course in week two I have made a list of meals and sides that I will be making/trying in the weeks to come. I hope you continue to follow my journey and I promise if you do… More recipes to follow. Maybe one or some or all….
Beef Stroganoff – this one was already posted and was so f’ing good!
