It’s January and while many other people resort to making resolutions, I’ve given up on making resolutions many, many years ago. That’s not to say there aren’t things that I could work on to make myself a better, nicer, smarter, fitter and more well-rounded person.
I see myself as a continual work in progress, therefore, I always try to work on myself and I know that if I make a resolution it would be just another thing to give up.
That being said, this last week I decided to revamp my diet and fitness routine once again. Living in Wisconsin winter weather makes it all too easy to give into comfort food and Netflix binge marathons.
Monday, I began Cycle 1 of the 17 Day Diet once again. Yikes. I hate that word. If you’re unfamiliar with the 17 Day Diet, I highly recommend it because despite its name, I don’t really view it as a diet but more of a guideline on how we probably should eat any way, less carbs, more green vegetables and only lean sources of protein. It’s a great way to get back on track and it’s feasible none of that two plain egg whites, plain tuna fish, a handful of almonds crap.
To stay on track I made cauliflower pizza and some broccoli, carrot, cauliflower soup to take to work this week to keep myself on track.
I also began following the Ashley Conrad 21 Day Clutch-Cut Program. I dragged my ass myself to the gym Sunday and Tuesday, Monday I worked out from home.
Because… AIN’T no way I was leaving my apartment when it was that cold.
Today, when I left for the gym wearing a hat, mittens, a bulky winter coat and boots I was very envious of all my favorite super fit fitness bloggers who live down South or out West. I mean running outside year round and wanting to eat anything but soup during the winter…That might make this easier.
In order to keep myself honest on track, I will be blogging more of my meals plans, recipes and fitness routines.
You’ve been warned.
