ok. you know me. i do not have a self esteem problem. if you've read this blog, even a little, you know that if anything i have a bit of an ego. though i prefer to think of it as an overflow of awesome. so when i say that its time that something has to be done about my weight, you know its kind of a big deal. see, we cut out 90% of the processed foods we were eating. i felt a hell of a lot better, less filled with gross unpronounceable things. i felt HEALTHY.
however, i didn't decrease the actual amount of ..... input.
so while yes, the food i am eating is healthier, it's a lot more calorie dense. like... a lot. real sugar. butter. cream. butter. whole milk (omfg so yummy). as little fake anything as i can. even soda. real soda. the good stuff, with sugar, that you have to import from mexico. and i've gained like 15 pounds in a month. we went to a parade with the star wars guys (bubby got to meet Darth Vader... it was wonderful, he was so in love) and my picture got taken a few times (because of the aforementioned bubby/Vader meeting, seriously, it was adorable), and seriously.... moose, jen, misty... please never show those pictures to anyone.
as much as i love myself, and know that i'm seriously awesome.... not so much likey the way i look.
so now we start phase two of the "real food challenge." adding exercise and portion control to the mix. already been on the treadmill at work twice this week, and today i walked to the gas station on lunch to get my stupidly over priced (but still cheaper than star$$'s) coffee. and i'm restarting the #365yoga challenge. starting tonight.
lets get my outside awesomeness to match my inside awesomeness!
