Here’s to a New Start!

Today is fabulously February first. What makes it so fabulous?  A fresh start.  I always feel like the first day of a new month is the perfect time to start something new.  No matter what it is.

Last month, I tried and failed miserably at dieting/working out.  Maybe I just wasn’t feeling it.  Maybe it was the chocolate cake that Z’s grandmother brought over.  Maybe it was all the goodies left from Christmas. {fudge, cookies, candy, etc.} Who knows, but I tried and failed.  I cheated and it just wasn’t a good thing.  I could never hop back on track. 

So here’s to a new start!  Today.  I have my nutrition plan in hand that Kristin gave me last Spring for the challenge plus I have my workouts ready to go.

Maybe it was a case of the oh’s and ow’s.  Maybe it was a case of “didn’t want to smell like icy hot”.  Not sure what it was but something happened and I just didn’t work out like I really wanted too.

  I am sure to get a great workout in this time.  And NO cheats.  One day a week I can have off.  I will have that one day something special.  Not sure what yet, but something.  Possibly macaroni and cheese or mashed potatoes…something sinfully good!

Shhh…But I started last Thursday working towards eating according to the plan this week.  So far so good.  I hit it hard on Thursday and cheated on Saturday night.  We got pizza and woops we ordered the Sicilian, which is like 2 inches thick in crust.  However, I worked out Sunday morning.

I am giving it my all!

You know, my husband has had very good luck sticking with a health plan. He eats whatever he would normally eat, but in smaller portions. And he exercizes 30 minutes a day. He's gotten in amazing shape doing just that. I think it works because it isn't extreme.

I hope that you are able to find a plan that works for you for life. It's a good feeling to be in shape. :)
