But now, two and a half years after my last child was born I still would like to lose 30 lb. It's hard! I've never been over weight in my life. I had always lead a very active life with running, swimming and tennis. Never did I need to worry about what I ate. I've even run a marathon (pre-baby). Since my second child was born I've attempted to get back into running again and also attempted to eat very clean. But I always tend to slide backwards and the pounds never budge. So instead of counting pounds anymore, which is so frustrating I'm going to base progress on how I feel and how my clothes fit and every now and then jump on the scale. But I definitely don't want to stress out over it.
I have a major sweet tooth and always have. I think it's become an addiction. So I'm going to start my healthy habits by finding sweets recipes that might actually be good for me! And at the same time I'm going to start including as many veggies/fruits into my day as possible. I don't eat a lot of processed food but just really have a sweet tooth!
I would like to eat less of this;
And more of this;
One way I would like to keep myself accountable is to do a What I Ate Wednesday post each week.
Starting this Wednesday I will document with pictures what I've eaten for the day and then Thursday of each week I'll write a post about it.
I would love it if you would join along. Maybe write a post yourself and link to your post in the comments section here. Seeing other people make healthy choices is very motivating. I can't promise I'll do this every week but will try my hardest! I'm also interested to see how this experiment works when I go on vacation in three weeks. There will probably be lots of pictures of wine, cheese and chocolate. Oh no!
What do you think? Will you join me? Please?! Now I'm begging!
