FF&FF-Day 3

I said I wouldn’t do this but I’m so proud of myself I just have to share.  Earlier this evening I was battling a serious sugar craving.  I tried to distract myself but every channel had ice cream and chocolate on it I swear!  I needed to go to the grocery store, but I knew better.  I finally decided I had to leave the house or I was going to be eating Cool Whip with nothing but a spoon.

Forty & Fabulous is Fading Fast- Day 2

Hey, friends!  Just giving a quick update on my personal 30 day weight loss goal.

The only sugar I’ve had  in the last 2 days came in the form of fresh fruit.  I am fully aware that a big wedge of watermelon is NOT an ideal bedtime snack.  It is better than a bowl of ice cream though!  I mean, come on!  I have to look at the positive.  I’ve stayed away from carbs with the exception of a few corn chips (I’m gluten free, remember.) and a corn tortilla.

As for the exercise, I have managed so far.  Yesterday my regular workout and today a nice long walk with the dog.  I even skipped coffee this morning.  I’m glad it’s nice out.  It makes it a lot easier to get up and get out.  I won’t bore you with daily details.  I did see there were a lot of you either on fb or here that share the same struggle so I just wanted to let you know I didn’t quit on day 2.

Tomorrow I’m online shopping for swimsuits.  It’s less painful that way.

I looked amMaria Holiday azing on my 40th birthday!  In fact, it was one of my favorite birthdays.  I had finally reached the age where I knew what I wanted AND I knew how to get it. It was a very liberating birthday. I thought I had nowhere to go but up.  I hate being wrong in general, but I REALLY hate being wrong about this!  Just when I thought I had my weight issues under control the pounds started creeping back.

I sell skin care, but it’s a skin care based on wellness.  It doesn’t do to not look the part.  So I started trying to take back control.  I tried pilates.  I got a dog so I would have a walking partner.  I started buying foods with names like kale, quinoa and millet.  Despite my efforts at eating better and exercising more, I just wasn’t making progress.
