I've decided to go with wording in this post that will include pride and commitment - instead of shame and embarrassment for not exercising for three months, and definitely not watching what I eat. I do work 7 days a week during the summer months due to holding two jobs, and I used that as my justification. But now that it's over, I'm going to remain positive and get back into a good routine!
This routine will include working out (either a home video or at the gym) at least 3 days a week. Ideally 5, but if I can get 3 in, I'll accept that as a starting point. I'm also using MyFitnessPal again to track my food/calorie intake.
Surprisingly, I lost a few pounds over the summer! Not sure how that happened...we'll explore that in a different post.
Also, I'll be utilizing the support system of fellow bloggers to motivate me! By not keeping up on my daily blog readings, I simply stopped even thinking about staying healthy! It made me realize that it really is a mindset, a way of life! With all the billboards showing the newest juicy burger creations around town, it's easy to focus on that instead of a yummy vitamin-filled salad!
So here we go - back from my health vacation and ready to get my beach body (just in time for the winter, ha!).
