Yep. That’s right. I am losing it. My sanity? No…(although sometimes that is debatable I think). I am talking weight here, ladies. I know I have been pretty honest with you all in the past about my struggles with my image and self esteem. My weight has a lot to do with that. I have never really been consistent with my weight, it seems, which I think has always added to the stress of my self esteem. Before I had Charlotte (I guess I could call that BC) I was super, super skinny. Like I look at pictures and think I look gross. My husband and I had just opened a business, so I was constantly working and just not making time to eat-so unhealthy. Then I got pregnant, and just ballooned. Gained a ton of weight. And never lost it. So here I am with my “baby” at 19 months old, still saying “oh I just had a baby!” Ummm…no you didn’t!
I can honestly say this is the most unhealthy and gross I have ever felt in my life- hands down (add on top of that my awesomely random Bells Palsy and you have yourself a winner!! HAHA!). Really though, I have been saying for months that I need to lost weight, get my act together, and I just haven’t. For some reason, I haven’t felt the push. You know- that thing that just instantly clicks inside of you and motivates you?
That is until a few weeks ago. A few weeks ago as you all know, I decided to start living my dream and open a women’s clothing/accessories boutique! As the owner, I really think its important to not only fit into the clothes I am selling, but wear them well, and feel good while wearing them! Talk about motivation, right?
I have tried all the diets known to man. Some several times. But to be honest with you, I have a pretty full plate at the moment, with opening a business and two children, to name a few. I just don’t have the time to measure, count calories, go to meetings, log my food, etc. Plus, I have just never been good at planning my meals out in general. That is why Nutrisystem was appealing to me. Everything is made for me already AND it is sent to my house! Hellooooo timesaver! Totally cuts down on the time it takes to measure everything out, and that is less time at the grocery store too (although I will say that every since I became a Mommy, alone time at the grocery store is just as awesome as alone time anywhere else! Hehehe!)
The selection is pretty great too. I can be picky sometimes-I don’t like seafood. I only like cooked corn and cooked peas. All other vegetables I only like raw. Certain sauces I don’t like-I could go on and on! The 28 day selection of food that I have is pretty delish though. There is a great selection of frozen foods as well as non frozen foods, and snack food too!
I will be updating you all each week on my progress-talk about being held accountable-as well as maybe share with you guys some pointers I have come across on eating healthy, workout tips, things I’ve learned along the way. How does that sound?!?
So today starts a new beginning for me, one that I am super excited about. I can’t wait to see the end result, and can’t wait to feel the end result! So hopefully you will join me in my three month journey, and help keep me motivated and on track!
Next Monday, after I complete my Fast5 first week, I will check back in with you on my progress!
