2013

Reflecting on 2012 and I dont think I did too shabby! Well except for not coming on here that much.

Lets see – Did pretty good on the exercise path until about May, had a few minor set backs and was hit n miss due to my body being a complete spaz, but did what I could when I could. The important thing is I kept moving. walking, hittin the treadmill when I could.  Hmm Food- well in June I went back to eating Ice Cream. no remorse there, at least I didnt wallow in the vat to the point of no return, its all about moderation (something I learned this year). Tried to eat like crap a few times only to suffer the consequence of food hangover. Realized that my crap eating is still better than how I use to eat. I never quit paying attention to ingredients and made sure there wasnt a lot of crap in the what I considered crap food. LOL

Discovered a new found love of certain Beers and Ciders – who knew?  wait is that good for you? – oh wait who cares they are good!

I’m not really a resolution person, never have been. I joke that my resolution is to not make any. But I do set goals for myself and revisit them every so often to see if I need to adjust or make them bigger.

My outlook for 2013 is positive  – I am repeating a goal I did not make in 2012 and that is to run a 5K, I walked 2 in 2012.

Gotta make sure I keep my body moving.

Eating right for me.

Keeping a positive, fun loving group of friends. Its amazing how if you have the wrong friends, for the life you want, will continually drag you down. But when you have friends in your life that hold similar thoughts and goals in life, life is much happier and you are much more successful in what you want to achieve.

This year I am going to try to blog more, not a daily food journal but about Food, Life, Health and Taking Care of Self.

Looking forward to things to come and gotta reset my dream board!

Enjoy!!!

And So Monday Begins!

Looking forward to Monday

Mondays are always a fresh start to a new week and a great starting point for getting back on track. I’m home, and ready to get back on track. I surprised myself over my little ‘vacation’. I didn’t really think my eating habits had changed that much,,,,, boy was I wrong!  My mom – such a sweetheart, tried her hardest to fulfill my dietary changes. Here are some things I learned about myself that I took for granted ; I don’t eat out of cans,except items like tuna or coconut milk. I no longer eat lunch meat with nitrates or excess sodium, bye bye Oscar Meyer. I eat a lot of vegetables, fresh veggies, veggies that are in season. Also soda, up til last week I hadn’t had a soda ( ugh gotta get off those again.)  I eat a lot more protein and less carbs.

Ive come a long way baby!

I am very proud of my changes and look forward to getting back to them. The biggest lesson I learned about myself?  Just because I was unable to maintain my normal dietary needs due to circumstances,giving up completely is not a choice.

I will however say that I still haven’t had Ice Cream since Jan!!! I did have a mini Pinkberry, and that took me two days to eat.

And so Monday begins

My new goals;  1600 calories, approx 100g of protein daily, and 1 hours of cardio 3X’s a week with 3 days of strength training.

Looking forward more healthy days and healthy eating!
