Quick post ; ) Just want to touch base and talk about actually "DOING IT" and when i say that I mean, walking the walk of getting fit and healthy. For so long i would talk about how I wanted to loose weight and get in shape, how I needed to eat better, to be more motivated. All this talk would eventually make me even more frustrated because it would make me realize how lazy I was when it came to my health and also that I was full of CRAP when I talked about getting in shape.
The day that I stopped saying "I'm going to" and just did it was the best thing EVER!!!
To make a plan and stick to it is VERY empowering! WOW I mean I actually had control over this, no longer did I feel like I was loosing the battle.
YES it took time, and i am still a work in progress. I think that you just have to know that your health is an every day commitment, a completely worth while one!
These are a few things that I KNOW.....
Every day that I work out and I mean REALLY WORK OUT (lots of sweat,worn out,give it all ya got!) I feel GREAT!!! Better mood, more optimistic, JUST PLAIN GOOD!!!!
Every meal that I eat clean I feel nourished, I feel energized, I don't have feelings of guilt or remorse over what I just fed my body.
Every day that I finish and I have done the best I can, adds another brick to the AWESOME me that I am building!
Better for my health, for my mind, so in turn i am better for my kids and my family which makes me so happy ; )
So to sum it all up....STOP TALKING and START DOING!!!
I recently posted this....

If you are eating processed junk food STOP...START eating clean, healthy fresh fruits and veg, lean meats and some dairy.
If you drink sugar laden soda or soft drinks STOP....START drinking WATER H20 !!!
If your lazy and don't work out STOP...START moving, get active, DO SOMETHING!!!
Try these and let me know how its working out for you!!!

Are we getting healthy??? You BETTER BELIEVE FIT!

Trigger UN HAPPY!

I just want to take a minute to talk about trigger foods and binges. UGLY STUFF PEOPLE, JUST UGLY!!! I still struggle with the old mind set that once i have eaten one cookie or brownie that I might as well go ahead and get the whole pan and put ice cream on top and sit there and go into a sugar frenzy eating it. ITS NUTS!!! It has taken me A LONG time to get this into my skull that it does not have to be that way. If I have a cookie, i should be able to enjoy that one cookie and walk away. If there are foods that you know will send you into a binge or that will bring on the guilt so hard and heavy you just feel like giving up all your hard work and efforts , well you just have to decide what is more important.
 I know that I cant have cookies and cakes in my kitchen because I WILL EAT THEM!!! OH and PLEASE don't get me wrong, there is nothing wrong with a good old cookie. But there is something wrong when you can't have just one and walk away.
Self control is one of the hardest emotions to deal with when you LOVE food, and know this to be true, I LOVE FOOD!!!  I used to get mad, PISSED OFF because I would want to eat certain foods and I would struggle and wrestle with myself over whether it was worth it, should i, shouldn't I and then i would just cave.
But guess what, i finally figured somthing out. This took me about 3 years to figure out once I had decided to start getting healthy. I HAVE CONTROL! I feel a million times better physically when I don't eat the junk food, and a trillion times better mentally when I stop a binge dead in its tracks. That high I got from stuffing my face with all the forbidden food's will never ever match up to the feeling that has taken over me from gaining control over my health, my cravings, and myself.
So , YES, now and again I have a cookie or some cheesecake. I have these as a treat. Something to enjoy, not regret.

It is very hard when you have struggled with this for a long time. I KNOW. What I want you to know is that you can beat it, I WANT TO YELL IT, SCREAM IT, WRITE IT IN THE SKY if I must!!! YOU CAN BEAT THIS!!! You can, you can, you can. Gaining control of your life is a wonderful and precious thing. DONT LET THE CUPCAKES WIN : )
Are we getting healthy fit and happy??? YOU BETTER BELIEVE FIT!!!
