The past 2 weeks I have eaten REALLY really well and have exersized at least 5 days each week!!! The week before that I only exersized 4 days - but because it had been so beautiful I was walking 6 miles in the morning and about 3 in the afternoon! I am actually feeling pretty great about how well I am doing lately and my motivation is high right now!
I have been trying out all kinds of yummy new recipes from Trainer Momma, Sara, Alisa and some awesome Vegan indian recipes that I have found! LOVE it! I am so ready to just go off Gluten but have to wait until after my celiac test... so just a few more weeks and I will find out about that! I do have to say though, that as a meat loving girl we have not had much of it the past few weeks - lots of beans, lentils, tofu etc and I have even MORE energy!
I am hoping to keep my motivation high!!! My goal is to work out 5-6 times a week through the end of December and then reevaluate how much more I should be doing at New Years! I am allowing myself "days off" for Thanksgiving and Christmas. Thanksgiving is never a tough one for me and since we are doing it alone (i think) this year it should be easy to just make healthy foods! I don't like pie so that has never been a real challenge... Christmas however is another story. I am working soooo hard right now so that I will be in the right frame of mind when it gets here. If I feel good and am exersizing I know I won't let eating get out of control! Bring it on!
