I think it’s gonna be a good day.
IT’S FRIDAY…and Friday before a long weekend…even better.
My roots are no longer mousey & gray….just in time for Vegas.
I had my first workout for the day done by 6:30 this morning.
The sun is shining.
I drank my first 32 oz of h2o and by 7:00 a.m.
My 4-year-old got herself ready for the day with only minimal prodding.
Oh, AND I remembered to shave the tops of my feet.
Since I’m feeling so awesome today I decided I needed a new challenge.
If you’re just starting to follow me, what you maybe don’t know is that I LOVE to work out but I also love to eat. And, just to be clear….I don’t love to eat just kale and carrots (although, I seriously do really LOVE kale chips!). I love eating out…anywhere. I love pasta. I love pizza. I love junk food. I love sweets. I love Diet Coke. I love beer. What I don’t love, however, is the way all that makes me feel (with the exception the kale & carrots of course). First off, it makes me feel guilty. Second, I feel like total crap when I eat like that now. (And, to think that’s how I typically ate…for a long time….no wonder.) I feel blah. I feel like I have no energy. I even feel slightly down and depressed. AND, even worse, I feel the need to eat even more of it.
So, when my sister-in-law mentioned the other day to take pictures of everything you eat in a day vs. journaling I thought it was a wonderful idea. I’m GREAT about tracking my food when I’m doing really well and on the clean eating wagon. But, once I fall off, I stop tracking for a while. And, after thinking about some of my worse days lately, the idea of having to look back at pictures of everything I devoured would be a serious wake-up call. The only hesitation I have is that I’m already obsessed enough with food….I’m really hoping this doesn’t perpetuate the problem but I have some HUGE goals that I won’t hit if I don’t behave!
So, for the next 30 days, I’m challenging myself to take pics of everything I eat & drink. I won’t torture everyone with all of them but I may throw up a collage from time to time…both when I may be struggling AND when I’m doing well! Is this going to be easy? Hell no. It could either be a brilliant or insane plan for me…we shall see. But, there’s nothing I like better than a challenge.
This means I’m starting today. I already took a picture of my creamer that I had in my coffee before Zumba!
I just realized what this also means….I have to do this while I’m in Vegas! Ok, what am I thinking.
