I’ve been a little distant from the blog lately, and I have to apologize. I didn’t mean to take a little hiatus but I had to work though some stuff, so let me explain.
First of all, I finished the Sugar Detox two weeks ago, which was great! Cutting out sugar and refined flours really helped me to drop a few pounds and I reached my lowest weight ever…and finally met the 170s on the scale!
And then the next day and following days I went a sugar rampage! Its embarrassing really. At a BBQ with friends, I scarfed down about 1/4 of Boston crème cake. I was finding myself eating more sugar and sweets than ever; yogurt, granola, chocolate chips, chocolate covered bananas….junk junk junk.
All this was in days of the Diet Bet ending which scared me, I didn’t want to lose my money! I was up a few pounds and knew it was some bloat and left junk in my system so I agreed to do a juice fast with my mom from the Reboot website. This is the program made by the guy, Joe, from the Sick, Fat, and Nearly Dead documentary. My mom has a similar auto-immune disorder and her doctor suggested she check it out and maybe try it. Long story short, I lasted about two days, made it back to my goal weight for the bet, and then gorged myself on pizza and Arby’s. ARGH!
So what happened after all this… I’d like to say there was big monumental moment but there isn’t. I just realize I’ve had enough.
— I’m sick of weighing myself every single day, multiple times a day. During the Diet Bet, it seriously got out of hand, I’m talking 5, 6, 7 times per day. So I took the batteries out the scale and shoved it in a closet…where it will stay for an undetermined amount of time. The truth is, I don’t need it. I know when I’m eating right and getting enough exercise. I don’t need a scale to tell me, I know when its enough.
— I’m in a workout rut! I miss the way I felt when I was doing Bob Harper DVDs daily, I was starting to develop muscles and maybe even abs. I love running but I need the weights too. I’m not doing it on my own very well, so I made a big decision and joined a gym. I’ll go in to detail about this a little more later but I’ve already gone twice and I can tell this will help me reach my goals.
— I feel myself falling back into a sedentary lifestyle, when I’m not working out. With my new ad design job I sit at a desk all day long, then I come home and sit on the couch or go to bed early. Well this has got to stop, I’ve gone on a couple walks during my breaks at work but I need to increase this to every day. I also need to walk my pups more!
Speaking of the pups: I thought this was funny…Kia is a afraid of water and finds the only dry place when it rains and Mopar was out having a blast rolling in the mud!
— As for food…well maybe you noticed a new little badge on the side of the blog…I’m now a Diet To Go Ambassador! Next week they will be sending me a whole week’s worth of meals to try out! I’m super excited to partner with Diets To Go and I’m looking forward to sharing my experience with you guys. Until then I’m trying to eat up all the yummy fresh stuff I have in the fridge so nothing goes bad.
All in all, I’m pretty excited about all these new changes. I’m ready to no longer have a weight problem. I’m ready to be a “regular” sized person. I’m ready to live the kind of life I want to live.
Thanks for reading! Hope you have a fab weekend!
