I am invested in this process 100%. So I'm laying it all on the line and posting not only my before and during pictures, but also my measurements and *gasp!* my weight change. Mostly because I know the scale can only go down from here.
I turned 30 one week ago. A few days before my birthday, I told everyone I knew that my 30s are going to be my "best decade EVER!" I'm doing more for my health now than ever before - things I never would have done (primarily running and quitting sugar!) have become the center of my inward focus. I want to be HEALTHY for my kiddos. I want to run and play and feel GOOD, not dread them asking me to run around outside with them.
So, here is it, the nitty gritty. It's not pretty, friends. But it will be... oh, I know it will be!
|So here I am on October 25, 3 days into the sugar detox. I'm hoping that the pooch around my middle is going to start shrinking now!|
For some reference, I was 173 when I quit sugar on 10/22/11!
Keep an eye on those hips/waist numbers! I have a feeling cutting out sugar is going to get those numbers dropping very quickly.
My goal is to start running 2-3 times a week (as soon as I can kick this nasty cold I've had all week!) in an effort to train for the Disney half marathon. I would also like to run another 10K before the end of December!
Anyone else want to share their fitness/weight loss goals?
