Life Takes Over

I haven’t been able to blog in so long!! Between sick kiddos, holidays, work, karate, and house hunting, I haven’t had much time for anything else. 

I’m still in my work’s Biggest Loser weightloss competition. My partner and I are killing it!!! 

I haven’t had the chance to get to the gym much but I track my steps at work and walk an average of 6 miles a day. I think this is helping me not gain. 

I must say my diet hasn’t been on point. When my 2yr old is up all night sick I somehow end up getting my Dutch Bros coffee fix. A giant coffee seems to make me feel better. (At least that’s what I’m going with lol)

I have to get back into it though. Eating 60% paleo isn’t good enough. I can’t let life’s chaos talk me into coffee or Easter candy. 

Being 30lbs away from my goal means I’ve reached the hard part. The part where the weight just isn’t going to come off as easily as it did when I was giant. 

You’re going down fatness. 

Let’s do this. 

  

Until next time!!

32 More to Go

I took a little break from the paleo diet for a couple weeks and have regretted it! My family also got the virus going around so I haven’t even been able to get to the gym in a couple weeks.

I’ve decided that tomorrow is back at this. I have 32 more pounds to get to my ultimate goal. I’ve signed up for a fit challenge at my gym, I’ve meal planned for the next couple of weeks, and I’ve decided my reward for hitting goal will be a “I Am Whole 30” tee shirt.

Does this mean another round of whole30 is in the works? You bet!

For those of you following my journey, you can see that I’m not 100% strict all the time. I think it’s important to enjoy a candy bar here and there if that’s what you crave. I’m all about the balance needed in life, because if you cannot find a balance, you are setting yourself up for failure.

I’m hoping my next round will be more of a transition into eating paleo for good. I can definitely tell when my body is over indulging crap and just feels like poop. I still will enjoy a Snickers sometimes, or some garlic bread with dinner, but this is my time to embrace my fitness and health goals and hit the goal I’m so close to hitting.

These last few pounds will be the hardest, but I’m up for the challenge. Who’s with me?!
