Sean and I were looking at photos on his iPhone from when we moved in together in Berkeley until now. Holy crap, guys. We’ve gained about 80 lbs between the 2 of us, so as of yesterday, we are ON A MISSION.
My goal: 15 lbs down & no more cellulite on the front of my legs. Fitting into old jeans.
The starting weight: 143 (my highest ever)
Food: No sugar. Make way way better food choices. No more depresso eating. Smaller portions. Green juicin’ it. No delicious, delicious gelato.
Exercise: Try to actually move my body beyond car > office > bed. Yoga, Ballet Beautiful, tennis, and that godforsaken Tracy Anderson woman.
So far: Salad lunches, spring roll dinner, and cutting way back on coffee.
Will it last: That’s why I’m posting here. Accountability! I lost 11 lbs back in March 2011 when we got super healthy for babymaking times, but since the move, we’ve fallen back to bad habits. It’s hard to eat healthy here, without all the amazing California produce and raw restaurants. But I’m determined! Being healthier is so, so important in this fertility journey – but when the super healthy eating didn’t get us anywhere last year, it really hit me hard. Oh, ok, so that CRAZY HEALTHY PERIOD (about 4 months) didn’t work? Fuck it. I know that thinking is ridiculous – still, emotional food responses are a powerful force.
Willpower: Tips welcome – I know what I WANT to achieve, but man alive, breaking bad habits is hard! (Willpower tip #1, don’t post gelato pictures!!)
