Day 53 Weight loss is not one size fits all!

There is so much information out there on what you should and shouldn’t be doing to reach your goals. It can seem impossible to know which way to go. Its easy to overwhelm yourself with advice from every source. I found myself trying to go in too many directions at once and wound up completely stalling out. If the tasks feels large you likely won’t be confident in your ability to conquer it. I threw everything I thought I knew out the window and started from scratch. This time I followed the advice from people about my size, height and age to see what worked for them because it should have roughly the same effect on me. The loudest voice however in my decision making process however, was my own. I listened to my own body to find out what it did and didn’t like. What foods have others struggled with that my body handled very well? What foods did others swear by that broke me out or made me sick and sluggish? This changed everything for. My regime was built specifically for my personal goals from my personal experiences with certain items. It has made shopping and meal prepping ten times easier. It really has made all the difference in this journey. If you’re routine is working, keep pressing you are almost there. If you need to make adjustments do so now and finish strong. We can do this. We were made to conquer. The change is inevitable.

Vacation time is over! Day 30-37

So, it appears the last time I posted was on the 10th, which is clearly unacceptable. I went on vacation with my family and just did not realize that the days slipped away without so much as a greeting on my blog. Please forgive me for that you guys. I will say I did enjoy the mental break to regroup and get my creative juices flowing again so that I actually have some good content to bring you.I also revamped my exercise routine because in my first thirty days I saw little progress. I know some may feel that its just too early to tell but I get going either very hard or not at all. I thought I would just wake up athletic and be able to handle each day what I previously wasn’t even doing a portion of. Crazy right! My stamina is increasing and I am certainly not where I was a year ago; even four months ago. However, I do have to settle into the process like everyone else and not be discouraged by the length of it. One day at a time ladies and gentleman. It’s what I preach, its what I should follow. So here we go again, another restart. Hey, as long as we finish, who’s counting! pexels-photo-60230.jpeg

Day 29 What I eat in a day

These seem to be incredibly popular videos on youtube so I decided to try my hand at creating one. I’m ok with how it came out but I am sure I can do much better the next time around. If you guys are interested in viewing the video I will leave it linked or attached below. I am in transition to being completely vegan; I believe may be a few months to a year. I do not consume beef, pork, chicken or turkey. I only have salmon and shrimp. I am not eating bread or dairy milk. The only fluids I intake are water, tea and very seldom juice. I don’t miss most of the foods I used to eat because I don’t miss how sluggish and disgusting they made me feel. The only thing I miss is the convenience of drive thru’s, which I often indulged in, because with two small boys and my husband on the road it just made life much easier. Now I cook and prepare every meal myself. It is very taxing as I do not have the space to store meal prepped food so I must cook the same thing every day for the week. I am determined for all of this hard work to pay off. Day 29 What I eat in a day LINK
