I know, I know , I know. You've all been dying to know what's been going on with my motivation and goals, etc. Yeah, nothing...until now. Thank you to two of my best friends for encouraging me to join them in a 30 day anti-inflammatory cleanse. I'm on the road to clean eating.
I was a little apprehensive to commit. I was afraid that my dad would sabotage my efforts by cooking tempting meals every night for dinner...I'm still afraid of that, but so far so good. Granted I had to eat my dinner and then get up from the table last night, rather than stay and visit with the family while they ate....to avoid the temptation to take a bite of their spaghetti.
As I've said before, night snacking is one of my worst habits. Last night I took my sleeping pill early, in hopes of falling asleep before the cravings kicked in. I broke down and had 2 tsp of peanut butter. Of course it's not an approved food on the plan, but it was WAY better than what I would've normally eaten and it did the trick.
Now for the embarrassing part. Please keep in mind that this isn't meant to be a glamor shot. It's to show my progress. Here is my before picture, taken after fighting the homework battle and scrubbing the kitchen. My starting weight is....gah, this is hard for me to write for the world to see. But in order for me to hold myself accountable, I've gotta do this. My starting weight is 225.4.
If you'd like to follow me along this journey, please either follow me here on GFC or on Facebook. I'm planning on sharing more details about the plan as I find my groove and find more time to write. Happy Hump Day!!!
