Changes and a Juicing Recipe

Fitness and weight loss is never something I really wanted to write about. Living healthy, yes, but not weight loss. It's a difficult part of me to share. The fact is, I'm embarrassed of my weight and try to hid it. Why would I want to publish it? I'm laughing to myself now. I'm hoping that maybe if I do publish it then it will start to be a lifestyle change I really need.

I do this all the time. I say I will go on this plan or workout more. I set a goal for myself and I get some good momentum going. Then something falls apart and I'm throwing in the towel. This time, it was my period. Yeah that thing that comes regularly once a month and last several days. I didn't remember it being this bad before I had children but it really sucks. I feel like my whole body is drained, my joints ache all over and I feel like I gained ten pounds. It's enough to knock me off track and then I'm back where I started.

It's really time to make the change. The lifestyle change. The hubby and I really want to try for another child but with the complications from the last, It's important that I make some changes. You might be reading a lot more of these posts because I need to start consuming myself with it otherwise this will never happen.

Obsessing is what I do best!

About two months ago I started the Fast Metabolism diet. It actually worked pretty well and I did drop some decent weight. Then the four weeks was up and I thought "I'll just have a cheat week and get back at it". Right, like I needed a whole week to cheat. I never did get back at it. The problem with these "cheats" is that they always throw me back into my food addiction and I literally take a month to work myself out of it.

Moderation never works out for me.

Last month I had surgery on my hand and it's not really back to where it should be. I'm bummed that I still can't do yoga. It just hurts too much. I was told recovery would only be a couple weeks because it was non-invasive but looks like I have a couple more to go.

NO MORE CHEATING!!

So... It's time to

  • Pull out the old trusty Breville and get juicing
  • Get moving on my stationary bike
  • Work in those weights
  • Menu plan and The Fast Metabolism Diet
