It's Day 2 of my "In It to Win It" surge to finish this weight loss journey that I've been on....oh forever. I post about my struggle with weight back in June of 2011. I was excited about the progress I was making with my personal trainer in Charleston and the goal of losing all of my first pregnancy weight was in sight.
And then we moved.
And I got pregnant.
And had to start all over.
Thankfully the journey has been much more fun this time. I've found a method of working out that I love. I've discovered that I CAN eat healthy and that I have way more willpower than I thought I did. In September I chronicled my Whole 30 journey and then I got stuck. I let the fast pace of life suck me into the "we'll just get pizza this one night" or "it's my birthday I want to splurge" or "Peter is gone and I've been cleaning up puke for a week I need a bowl of ice cream...or seven" and I just got stuck. Thankfully I've been able to maintain what I had lost already and even lose a tiny bit more. But I'm ready to finish off this battle!!
So I'm back to the Whole 30. This time it's Whole 30 M-Friday at lunch and Paleo on the weekends. There isn't too much of a difference but I can make a few "treats" using honey or other natural sweeteners that I can't do while on Whole 30. It's a good compromise for me and I'm sticking with it until I reach my goal!
I'll be posting a few more recipes over the next couple of weeks and hopefully by Reed's birthday I'll have an awesome update for you!
If you are on a weight loss journey I'd love to hear your story!!
