and I want to look way better than I did at 30! On the day of my birthday we are going out for lunch and then going to the wiggles concert with my daughter and it's in a theater and I'd really like to comfortably sit in the seats without bothering anybody who might be next to me so the plan:
My fitbit tells me I use 3000+ calories a day so I'm going to only eat 1200-1500 per day for the next 45 days. Sounds easy right??!!! lol I'm just going to, I'm not writing down a set menu, because the second I write down salmon for lunch my brain is like "oh but *** would be nicer" well whatever I eat I HAVE to know it's calorie content BEFORE I eat it! No more "WOAH my McD's breakfast was 1800 calories and it's 9am" moments. Those days are gone. I claim to be an educated woman and yet here I am with all the knowledge and I share my weight loss and health tips that I've learned with lots of people but do I apply it myself?? NOPE!! Well today that changes. I can do anything for 45 days right??!! That's not long in the grand scheme. I've got a weekend without Troy home so it's going to be super active. I'm going to get up before Poppy and workout, and we're going to walk places, then we're going to clean the house, and we're not going to eat junk! My husband has atrocious eating habits and no intention of changing them sadly so I'll slowly work on Poppy on days he's not here. I was doing really well at resisting the junk he brought in and then my brains "but it's not fair" mechanism kicked in. "why should he get lots of yummy food and spend 1/4 of our shopping budget just on chips, coke, and biscuits when I'm living on spinach" well he gets to because I let him. No more! As a family we don't drink or smoke or gamble so I don't mind have a few bottles of diet drink in the house but he doesnt need as many other treat foods as I've been buying... no more though... but I'm not telling him because he gets all sulky, he'll just notice less of those things in the cupboard! Muhahaha. Anyway I've gotta go now as I work at 8 and it's 7:02 and I'm in my pj's and work 30 minutes drive away! Time to motor! :)
But yeah day one on a friday!! Who'd have thought!!
