First, I want to say thank you to everyone for your outpouring of support that I have received since I came back to the blogging world! Not only on this blog, but also on writingfrommyheart.wordpress.com. After being gone so long, I’m beyond happy to be back; you guys are too wonderful!
We came back from our beautiful ocean trip today…Two days of the relaxation that I was desperately in need of. I feel like it has helped me start over; helped me to refocus. While I unfortunately didn’t eat the greatest, I did come home today and do 15 minutes on the elliptical (881 strides, 92.5 calories!) and then did approximately 15 minutes of yoga. Actually, correction: I ATTEMPTED yoga. It’s something that I am working on, and I am sure I will get the hang of it eventually. Does anyone have any ood yoga pose ideas for a plus sized girl?!
Tomorrow, I plan on beginning a full, juicing/water only fast for two or three days. I need something to help cleanse my body; to get this heaviness out of the pit of my stomach. Once I’ve finished the two or three days (it’ll depend on how I’m feeling by the second day. If I can go another day, I will), then I’ll add meat and other foods back into the regimen. What I can promise (and boy, do I mean PROMISE) is that I will not go back to the way I have been eating. I’m embarrassed by it, and I refuse to continue. I’m ready to fix my body.
To help myself along, I’m going to create a vision board, both at work and at home. First thing to go one it is something that every girl should own…A little black dress.
Looking at this picture, I can see myself in it; I see myself losing the weight to get there. Other items on my vision board will include a scale that says “155lbs”, a picture of a pastry chef, a picture of a college diploma, etc. All of these things represent goals and dreams that I have, and with the vision board, I will be able to see myself with them, and really feel what it is like to achieve them. I can’t wait to get started!
That’s all for now, friends. Until next time!
