I don't normally make official new year's resolutions, I like to make goals throughout the year whenever I feel I need to make a change. However this year Trevor and I are embarking on the most cliché new year's resolution there is. Losing weight and eating better.
On top of that when Trevor is stressed out, he likes his comfort food. So the last couple months have been really hard for me to eat right with Trevor bringing home all the favorites, pizza, burgers, you get the idea? Then with Christmas approaching why on earth would I start eating healthy then? Biggest temptation month of the year! So then we figured we may as well as enjoy it and start with a clean slate after the new year. Pathetic? Maybe. Realistic? Yes.
So this is where we have found ourselves. We have not been taking care of our bodies, and we can feel it, and we are running out of excuses. Being honest, is there ever a good excuse to not be eating healthy? No. No there isn't. That unfortunately is a hard truth we ALL need to learn more about.
So I am about to have a rude awakening these next couple weeks. Thankfully, and not so thankfully when Trevor wants to eat right, he does, and he does it in full force. He likes to have us on a low carb diet, and for me, that is rough, because carbs are my dear, dear friend, so I will have to figure out something that really works for me personally.
Obviously this doesn't mean we will be perfect, but moderation, balance, and health is the key! If our diet is 80-90% healthy, I will be ecstatic with that! I mean 100%? Well I don't know about you, but I need my bowl of Macaroni and Cheese every now and then, or yes, I just might die.
I know I hold my weight well, but I am about 12 pounds over my normal healthy/working out/eating right weight and I feel like crap. I can see it affect not just my pants by my energy level. It is honestly the most weight I have ever had to lose, so if it seems small to you, it is still pretty daunting to me. The smaller amount of weight you have to lose, the harder it is to lose it. I hate those last 5 pounds, they are a killer and feel like they take forever. With my body making changes I know that this is something that will have to become a lifestyle if I plan on staying in shape. So here is to more balance in our life and figuring out a schedule that will serve our bodies better!
