Time to Make a Change

| (0) comments |

Repeat after me: I can do this!So if you read my last post, you know I have been going through some 'stuff'. I have somewhat unintentionally allowed it to become an excuse for a lot of things. I don't feel like doing anything so I don't. I want to just kind of hide in my own little depressed world so I do. Emotional eating takes over and instead of fighting it, I give in. It's been a train wreck quite honestly. And guess what! I FEEL like dirt too! I can tell that I haven't been on my 'A' game. I have been sporadic with my workouts which has made me feel lazy. I have been all over the place with my nutrition which means my stomach has been a mess. And while I often preach about staying away from the scale, I know that in this case it doesn't lie. Through this process, I have gained almost 10 lbs. TEN POUNDS! Each and every one of those pounds that I have worked so hard to get off, have come right back on so quickly! It's not fair how that happens is it? 

I'm disgusted with myself. I know that I haven't been feeling well, but that's no excuse for letting things get to this point. 10lbs may not seem like much to some people, but when you have a body like mine that FIGHTS to lose every ounce....it can feel like a defeat. :(  But I'm NOT going to give up. Every day is a new chance to start fresh. I have been letting my accountability slack in my laziness and that has to stop. I haven't been doing meal plans and we have just been eating 'whatever'. That has to stop. I have been slacking on my workouts and not consistently following a plan. That HAS to stop. It's time to take charge of my body. I promised myself that I would never go back to that person I was when I started. Will you hold me accountable? My commitment to myself and to you is to be more present on social media in my accountability. And as always, I will be honest with my successes and struggles because I feel like it is so important for everyone to know that this road is difficult for all of us! It isn't a cakewalk! There are so many social media personalities out there that only show you the 'ideal' and never the struggle. I will always keep it real because that is just the kind of person that I am!

Push harder than yesterday if you want a different tomorrow.

SO...now it is time for my plan for the next week.  I leave for Beachbody Coach Summit in Nashville on the 14th which is only a week and a half away!! EEK!! It's time to really dial in my nutrition.  I have found that I do really well with my food when I just plan my dinners and know they will be lunch the following day. Then just to plan a couple of snacks to eat throughout the week. My Shakeology is always my breakfast, of course. So here is the plan:


Shakeology w/ fruit


Leftovers from dinners


T25 Salsa Boats
Veggies w/ Hummus


Turkey Burgers on grill w/ baked sweet potato and veggies
Quinoa, Black Bean & Corn Tacos
Clean Eating Sloppy Joes
Grilled Teriyaki Chicken w/ roasted sweet potatoes
Black Bean Burgers w/ grilled veggies
Quinoa Stuffed Peppers

I am not going to assign a specific meal to each day because quite honestly I find that I end up making something else. So I will pick something from the list and keep track of my nutrition to make sure that I am getting the correct nutrition.

I will continue to follow the 21 Day Fix program this week. It has been working well for me energy-wise and the nutrition plan is one of my favorites because it is so simple. Over thinking it doesn't work for me!

And that's the plan!!  I will also be hosting a FREE water challenge starting tomorrow. We will focus on rehydrating our bodies and getting back on track after the holiday weekend. Do you want to join us? Click HERE to join and I will get you added to our private group!
