So it is official. I am not on a diet. Something about that word makes me cringe. Literally cringe folks. I hear it and I get the hebejebes. It may be the fact that as a child, I tried out one diet after another with my mother, or the fact that in high school I got a little too into dieting, if you know what I mean. I feel like calling it a diet, just sets you up to either fail, or take it to the extreme. Because of that I am not on a diet. I am however, trying to eat healthy. This week has been week one on my journey to healthy living.
I like to think of myself as a healthy eater. I try to eat my fruits and veggies and everything, but lately I have been loving the carbs and candy a little to much. I am a curvy mamma and I love that. I love that I have curves and by no means do I want to slim down to a stick, nor would The Hubbs want me to. He loves the curves too. I just think that lately my curves are getting a little to curvy. I have been inspired by some of my bloggy friends. Cassidy is a blog friend and a real life friend. Her workouts have inspired me. She is a busy Mama, who works out at home. I love it! I don't have time or the money to go to the gym, nor do I have the time to spend hours at home working out. I am a Mom. I am busy, just like I know all of us are. All last week I just did 15 minutes a day of excising. I put on my ear phones, blasted the glee music, and got to working out. From squats to abs I did 15 minutes non stop. It worked! I actually felt better this week. 15 minutes was something I could actually do. I was sore, but felt energized.
I am kicking sugar, which has been not to bad considering all the Easter goodies around my house. No slip ups this week. I want to be healthy and be a good example to those red heads of mine. I know when I eat healthier, they do as well. Smoothies are in our constant near future and family walks of course.
I am excited to share my journey, as I get healthy, kick the sugar, and strengthen and tone. I am taking it a day at a time. Somehow this year has changed me. Deciding to go homemade has made me want to be better in all areas of my life. Being healthier is just one of them. So join me on my journey of being a blogger Not on a diet. I am hoping to share some tips and tricks I use, while still being a busy wife and mother.
Oh and here is me ready to shed these extra curves
