Light Bulbs

I was in such a nightmare yesterday I am so glad it is over.  I have been feeling very – blah – as you can tell from my post yesterday.  Gained weight, feeling fat, feeling gross, and sorry for myself.  When I awoke this morning and came to work I noticed a red mark on each of my hips…. Stretch marks.  UGH.  Just to top off my horrible feelings I have about myself and I have two new stretch marks.  It threw me into a whirlwind and then it hit me… that light bulb.  “JUST DO SOMETHING ABOUT IT AND STOP COMPLAINING!”   So I am.  I have opted to try a 30 day challenge (I cant fathom 100 so I am starting small). 

30 minutes of exercise – 6 days a week.  No added sugars.  Palm sized main meals.  2 Liters of water a day & No Alcohol. 

I have my first trip to Europe in exactly 37 Days and I will be damned if I am less that 100% comfortable going!  So bring it on 30 days!!  I’M READY!!!

  1. Cheer up girlie! Your ten years ahead of me in quiting the sauce….i wish i did it when i was 26 not 36! You can do it. I need to excercise too….ugh its soooooo hard. I know it is not really, but I’m lazy in that aspect!

  2. I know the feeling, were going to the beach in a week and I’ve been crazy feeling and dieting and trying to shape up! But, I am starting to feel now. Woot woot! Sounds like you got your spark back and you got a good plan for a healthier, better you! Keep up the good work! Hugs!

  3. I’ve lately been saying, “It’s simple, but it’s not always easy.” I’m wishing you nothing but the best. You can do this.
