So, I'm going to be transparent with you. I'm going to tell you everything I eat! I'm going to tell you if I exercised or not. I'm even going to tell you how much I weigh!!! I want to improve my life & that requires change. It requires effort & a willingness to do things that are uncomfortable to me. I'm open to that because I get excited about what's on the other side of that:
Feeling comfortable in my own skin; my clothes
Having more energy (for me & my family)
Setting a good example for my children
With that being said, I weigh 133.6. That puts my BMI at 24.4 (You can calculate yours here). It's just a hair under the overweight category, but it's the most I've ever weighed outside of pregnancy/post-pregnancy. I feel the most comfortable weighing about 110 & in a size 2. So, that's where I'd like to be, but I also realize that being fit is about more than a number on a scale or clothing size. It's the choices we make that lead to our health & well-being.
So, I plan to log what I eat with the Lose It! app on my iPhone. Here's a copy of my food log for today:
I also plan to get some sort of exercise each day. Today I started with the popular Insanity workout program. I did the first little Fit Test. I made it through 15 of the 25 minutes & about dropped dead! Not really, but it was very hard. I'm not intending to promote this program, but my husband had purchased it awhile back, so we already had it. I also have known a few people who enjoyed good results with it, so I thought I'd give it a try.
I'm also taking my vitamins, drinking water, getting sleep & attempting to reduce stress in my life.
I will not do this perfectly. I will make mistakes, but I feel hopeful about the benefits of focusing on health for my life.
Does this resonate with you? I would love to hear what you have to say about your own process. Feel free to email me anytime. I'd love to hear from you!
