Although I usually check Marthastewart.com everyday, my new husband and I have enjoyed a relaxing week off together and have tried to limit our Internet use. Well, that time is over, and I've just stumbled upon the plans beginning tomorrow. I was already planning on going to the store tonight, so this seems like a big sign that it's time to get my health and my life together.
I've been sporadically going to the gym for a while now, and while I know that's commendable, my eating habits haven't changed practically at all, so my arduous gym sessions haven't yielded any results except for a bit of toning. While this is nice, I'm tired of being tired. I'm tired of having heartburn from eating unhealthy foods. I'm tired of having a mostly sedentary life. I'm tired of being sick more than most people. I'm tired of being embarassed about how I look and just hoping that people don't notice. And mostly, I'm tired of reading articles about unhealthy foods and overlooking it, thinking that it somehow doesn't apply to me. They do apply to me, and it's time to do something about it, for good.
So my goals are to:
1) eat healthier, non-processed foods
2) COMPLETELY give up soda, sugary drinks, and alcohol
2) make my gym sessions more routine and less of a chore
3) be happier with myself as a person.
4) live better, in general
5) blog every single day of this process
If anyone has suggestions or comments, please feel free to leave them. I will blog every single day to keep me motivated and accountable to the plan!
I am going to leave for the store here in just a few minutes, with my list of encourageable foods and also the list of non-approved foods. My blender is ready, my husband is ready, I am ready!!
