In my life before kids I was able to go to the gym and workout for 2+ hours....and to be honest I loved every minute of it. I could take a spin class followed by a pilates class, or run and do weights back to back. I, however, should have not used that 2+ hours as an excuse to indulge as much as I did. I in no way was heavy but let's just say I have managed to be 10lbs lighter now as a mom with MUCH less time to work out. No longer having the luxury of time, I make sure I watch my calories in and out much more closely. Enter true confession....over November and December when I was doing the HBBC and running 172 miles each month, I allowed myself to cheat here there and well just about everywhere. I followed my healthy eating for most of the day but each treat that was offered to me made it's way into my belly most times...and now my belly is showing that!
While personally I feel embarrassed for my lack of self control I also recognize reality of the holidays and just an overall intense time in my life right now. However, as Biggest Loser says, NO EXCUSES! I contacted the person who did my hubby's diet for his upcoming show and am taking that step to really cracking down on what I eat. This year, as I've said before, my goal is to let food be fuel and my hope is that he will guide me to those types and amounts of foods! My real hope though is that I don't have to eat like my poor hubby who is really limited to chicken, egg whites, and broccoli period! I will be sure to share once I get it all!
