- I seriously could live on junk food. It may make me feel like a slug and gain 500 pounds but I'd be perfectly satisfied.
- I have a really hard time eating meat. I'd become a vegetarian but I've always been afraid that I'd just eat junk food all the time.
- I've always hated working out until I started going to Zumba. It's seriously the funnest workout ever. It's the only thing I've EVER looked forward to.
But even with those things against me, I have a real desire to be HEALTHY. My mom had a heart attack at the age of 38. My maternal grandfather died of a heart attack and my maternal grandmother died after going into a diabetic coma. They were in their very early forties. I need to be healthy for me and my family. I want to teach my girls to eat right and be active from an early age. I want it to be natural for them.
Exercise: I mentioned I found a new workout called TurboFire and that will be my exercise plan. I started it and made it 4 days.. and then quit. So tomorrow is day 1 and I am excited. There is a 90 day schedule, working out 6 days a week and I intend to follow that through to the end. I also want to start going to Zumba again.. either as a replacement for one of the days or in addition to my TF workout.
Eating: I joined a nutrition challenge on Facebook and it starts TOMORROW! It's a clean eating challenge and it goes for 6 weeks. If you haven't ever heard of clean eating, basically you want to eat foods in their whole natural state. No preservatives or added junk. You eat lots of fruits, veggies, lean proteins and healthy carbs. I've been browsing lots of websites and really love the recipes and information on The Gracious Pantry.
By posting everything, I know it will help hold me to some accountability. Wish me luck! I'll post an update next week!
