My next planned post was supposed to be on Clean Eating BUT I couldn’t wait to share the news! It has been one week since I last weighed and measured myself and I am quite happy with the results and feeling motivated! I’ve lost 5.2 pounds and inches!!!! Here are the numbers in black & white:
AND, this is after using last night as a splurge night. I drank more than my intended wine and had a small slice of homemade pizza. To balance this I drank plenty of water and munched on avocado, peppers and carrots throughout the night. We all had a great time, I didn’t feel deprived and I’m back on the wagon this morning (6am TRX class kicked ace!).
We all go through ups and downs throughout our journey and I found it really challenging to say no to wine! This is real life and real life means allowing yourself to waiver every so slightly but doing this with control. I’m meeting some friends this evening and I feel in control and won’t indulge like last night. I am GREAT with that. I am mindful of how I felt afterwards and am working too hard to sabotage myself for a few glasses of wine.

In January 2013 I realized I needed to do something to improve my health. I spent 2012 on maternity leave and often neglected taking care of my own health (sleepless nights and caring for a tiny human will do that!). Not to mention the many years before that where health was at the bottom of my list of priorities. Luckily, I discovered Lisa's 30 day green smoothie challenge. The recipes were incredible and a green smoothie drinker was born! But I didn't stop there. Starting each day in such a healthy way led me to consult with a naturopath (it would have been Lisa if we were in the same city), do an elimination diet, and discover that I have sensitivities to wheat and milk. I changed to a whole foods-based diet (most of the time) and took up running. In the span of 8.5 months I went from being tired and sluggish on the couch (literally - I could run for one minute at a time before having to walk) to having enough energy to run the Detroit International Half Marathon. I actually RAN the whole thing! And I lost almost 60lbs along the way! Thank you, Lisa, for being my catalyst. Your challenge kept me interested in a new way of living and saved me! I continue to drink a green smoothie every day for breakfast. What a wonderful way to start each day!
Thank you thank you thank you!!!
