I had a really hard time deciding if this was a captain's log or prisoner's log (it may well turn out to be both) but for today, captain wins out. Particularly because in my mind Jean Luc Piccard is narrating my title.
Today is Day 1 of 28 of healthy eating. This all began months ago when I was going to do a healthy eating challenge. I lasted like 4 days. And then took a five month hiatus. Hey, what can I say, I love food!
This time was totally going to be different because I finally had 28 days in a row at home. FAKE OUT. I have 2.5 days at home before my next trip. Soooo that really threw a wrench into my totally perfect meal-planning, tupperware storing, 100-calorie snack portioned ideal life. Instead I bought some boxes of frozen veggies and individually packaged chicken breasts and I'm making a go of it.
Yup, that's pretty much how I feel, but I have an entire wardrobe of summer clothes that don't fit this winter body. "Just a little extra padding for the winter" doesn't so much apply in a warmer climate and the transition to warmer weather happens a lot faster down here. YIKES! But I can do this - it's time to do one of those love yourself, love your body, your body is a temple, fuel it with good things, blah blah blah blah. Let's get real - I need a smokin' hot summer bod.
Yes, this post is meme and gif heavy, but I can't stop. In the words of Miley - I can't stop, I won't stop. Sing it girl! The other motivation unwittingly came from a coworker that had no idea about my... let's call it renewed dedication to weight loss/healthy eating. She came over to my cube and asked what I've done since Halloween since it looks like I've lost weight. When I adamantly denied the weight loss (because trust, I'd take that compliment but I haven't lost a pound) she told me she could definitely see it in my face. Aka, definitely time to kick this into high gear. AND ON PI DAY. The irony is not lost of me. Also, this article about cake vs pie is hilarious - get to the chart. Trust me. Most of you know my stance on this (disgusting fruit goo vs the angel's kiss of funfetti) but to each their own.
