Today marks two weeks of watching what I eat and exercising. I feel so much better when I exercise most days of the week and eat right. Prior to the last few weeks my thought process was that I should exercise and eat better but thoughts like: "Today I overate because I was tired and fast food was quick" or "I worked 12 hours 5 days in a row, i deserve this reward of (insert unhealthy food with salty/sugary treats here)". A big one for me too was, "I took my vitamins so I've had plenty of nutrients and dont need these veggies". So, along with these habits over the last few years came 80 lbs!
I was not exactly skinny prior to this, but was healthy and exercised regularly. Also, I was on track to being thinner. Thin to me is a healthy BMI, not a size 2.Now don't get me wrong I would love to be this skinny but I would be happy between size 5 and size 9. At my height this looks best. The 80 lbs of weight loss seems to be so daunting. So, instead of thinking I want to be a size 5 and lose 80 lbs, I'm thinking more along the lines of keeping my spark challenge of 10 min of exercise daily. I can log my food daily. Sometimes, I get busy but I can commit to the spark challenge of eating 5 servings of veggies per day.
I can do this. I will do this!
