I'm doing a 4 Week Challenge for the month of October - here's my starting stats. 168 pounds.
I'm testing out how a smaller group will go - so stay tuned for future challenges. If you would like in my original Facebook group leave your email address in a comment and I will add you.
You know those people who quit smoking and become the annoying 'you KNOW how bad that is for you' people? That's kinda like me and flexible dieting, I have to literally restrain myself when people tell me they eat 1400 calories a day. I know, I'm so annoying, but I get it - I've eaten less and moved more, but to the point where it sucked. There were nights I went to bed hungry or went to bed early so I wouldn't eat any more. Who wants to live that way?
I actually hate it when people ask me, 'oh what kind of diet are you doing?' cause the answer is confusing and long - I usually get a lot of blank stares and a smile::nod. I need to just say I count my calories, cause I do in a way, just in more detail.
My goal in life is to teach y'all that you can eat more, move more, and lose weight all while not feeling deprived. I know some of you label me a 'healthy living blogger' which is defined as "As it applies to individuals, healthy living is the practice of health enhancing behaviors, or put simply, living in healthy ways. It implies the physical, mental and spiritual capacity to make healthy choices."
Nowhere in this statement does it say you can't have sugar, or soda, or carbs. Those are all personal choices you make. In my world healthy living is everything in moderation. I occasionally have a Diet Coke, I eat at least 1 cookie a day, I eat a shit ton of carbs, but I also eat a shit ton of protein. I've come to really hate the term 'clean eating' - it's so vague and it really irks me when people are so judgmental of other peoples food.
Now - I obviously sweat a lot so that means I get to eat a lot, I probably will be depressed after my marathon when I have to lower my carbs. Anyways - here's a snapshot into my day.
