90% Diet / Fitness / Healthy Living / Body Positivity. 10% other stuff I like.
(Everything in moderation!)
I've lost 80 pounds to date. Join me as I keep it off, and try and take off the last 20!
As a little challenge to myself, over the last 12 days:
- I had no Diet Coke all 12 days
- I had no alcohol for 11 of the 12 days
- I took a Bikram class a day for 11 of the 12 days
plus a few indoor cycling classes, trying to keep my food on point, etc. during that time too.
Yesterday I did not work out, at all. PLUS I had wine (and a lot of food) at dinner with friends.
And today I have just felt a low level of awful all day!
I went to an early indoor cycling class to sweat out the wine, I added in a bunch of greens with my lunch, and I’m still just felling pretty…blah…today.
I blame the wine. And I’m also blaming it on being “too detoxed” for the last 12 days. :)
I still haven’t had a Diet Coke, though! Really trying to get rid of that habit.
Things that have happened since I last posted here nine months ago:
- No, I did not have a baby!
- I ran a half marathon, whoo!
- I regained almost 20 pounds
- I re-lost almost all of those regained 20 pounds
I became very complacent in my weight lost over these several months.
Read: I got lazy.
Just because you’re working out that does not mean you can out-exercise a crap diet. And when things go wrong in your life you cannot turn to food, as is per your usual, and not expect to regain the weight.These are the things I have to learn.
So, I am going to try and use this Tumblr again, to connect with other people who are on this journey, and to hold myself accountable.
