It's a vicious cycle my friends, and I hope that this is the year I finally break it. Confession time - I sort of knew that I was making terrible health choices the past few months. But let's face it, I spent a PHENOMENAL 3 months in Portland last summer, and an incredible 3 months in Europe this fall. It was 6 months filled with new friends, dinners out, and some of the most delicious wine I've ever had. I wouldn't trade it for anything. That being said - I am not pleased with the way my clothes fit, so it is time to get cracking. Hello January, let's do the weight-loss thing once again.
Here is what I have planned for myself:
EAT THIS, NOT THAT:
So for my 2015 diet, I am eating about 1800 calories a day, and am mainly using recipes and recommendations from this book. I am planning on counting calories for a few more weeks until I get back into the swing of healthy eating.
Tonight for dinner, I made the Turkey Sloppy Joes out of the Eat This Not That Diet book, along with a side of oven-baked french fries. Not a bad diet, eh?
This is going to be my triple exercise threat. Okay, the dog walks are not really exercise, anyone who has seen my dog walk knows that we typically move at a snail's pace, but even standing burns more calories than sitting!!
And yoga is always part of my routine. I plan on going 1 or 2 times a week, depending on my schedule.
TIME FOR FUN:
Once a week, Matt & I are going to indulge by going to a restaurant. We typically do this - it is not realistic to sit at home and never enjoy a dinner out. Especially because there are so many exciting restaurants to try in Charlotte.
So, who else is doing their yearly January weight-loss routine? Who else wants to break this cycle? Who will join me in meeting their goals?
