Well, it's been a loooong time since I've been on here, about a month. But, it seems so much longer than that. And, when I look in the mirror, I can definitely tell!! It's driving me crazy and making me sick all at the same time. I feel like I've lost all determination and will power. The good thing is I feel it still lurking inside, I still want to be fit and strong. It's just a matter of breaking the bad habits I've picked back up over the past month and getting serious again. I felt so much better when I was exercising. I felt strong.
I have been surprised at how much my muscles have changed. I've learned the lesson - If you don't use 'em, you lose 'em. My legs and butt feel so soft. My arms look different. My husband says he can't tell any difference but I've gained about 7 pounds and I can tell that I'm getting soft. I was never "hard" but I'm squishier now than a month ago.
My sister is getting married on December 20th and I really want to look good for her wedding. I'm a bridesmaid and I do not want to be the fat, flabby one!
I have the next 8 days off from work and I really want to get my act together. Diet has always been my biggest struggle. I'm not a big meat eater and don't like any kind of fish so that really hurts my protein intake. I'm going to use a lot of chicken and turkey. I've never cared for yogurt and have just got to where I like vanilla. My next step is to go to plain. Maybe I should mix vanilla whey protein in plain yogurt?
If anyone has any ideas for a diet that's easy and not too hard to stick with, I'm open for any and all suggestions. I purchased REDuction a while back and still have most of it. I started slacking not long after I bought it. I plan on using that as I get started again. Also, I'd love to find a buddy to help keep each other accountable.
Today is a new day. I am ready to make a new start. One of my favorite quotes - "There is no TRY, only DO!" That's how I am going to approach this. "Trying" is not an option. I have to get off of my butt an "DO" it!
