Winding down, kids are in the bathtub (very deep water and all by themselves) and I thought I would write a quick note and touch base. I hope everyone is enjoying their new year! I am focused this year on getting back on track and maybe in my mind finding a way to have a bit more control of what is going on. I do know we never really are in control but I am attempting to trick myself one more time.
When you have 3 kids, a career, a 2nd career, a significant other and all the other craziness our lives have you tend to forget what important for yourself. I tend to put everyone else first and make sure I am focusing on getting through whatever challenge I am having at the moment I forget to check in with myself.
So today is day 6 of my beloved (love/hate) plan of eating healthy. A few years ago I lost a lot of weight and felt fantastic. It isn’t really about the number on the scale but more the feeling I get when I am accomplishing something that I think about so often. When you date someone as naturally thin as Tracy you just think you are skinny too because you are looking at them all the time, so now its time for me to finally do what I talk about. I don’t want to be a chubby mom in the valley. I’d like to be a hot stand up/ real estate agent and have all the energy I need for my kids. I want to feel great when Tracy and I are going on a date or have an event and find the perfect outfit. I am tired of disliking my outfits!!!
I have the gift of being an emotional eater, so with the break up, being a single mom and real estate slowing down, I was left with all my favorites. Chocolate, Pizza and sugar! My body is not a fan, considering I am gluten intolerant. I figure I would share this with you to be held accountable on my desire to look my best and I am sure there are a few of you out there that have similar issues. I want to change! I want to be different! Most of all I want to accomplish what I dream about most. This way I realize, yes, I can accomplish anything I commit too. So wish me luck and I will let you know how its going.
My diet you ask:
No dairy, no sugar, only protein, tons of veggies, water-tea-or-coffee, no eating after 7pm and a bag I carry with me at all times that has cucumbers, radishes and celery. I do go to a doctor every week. Dr. Mizrahi is my man. Good times!!
Talk to you soon with an update!!
