Ok my cyber/blogger friends, this Sunday I turn 34... yes I said my age lol. For a while I’ve been bragging and telling my husband how I want to lose weight, or how I want to be healthier and exercise more, blah, blah and blah. Because all I did was talk but no action. Well yes there was action of me eating whatever I could.
So I have decided that now that I will be 34 I need a huge change in my life regarding health. See this is MY STORY: When I was 15 I got my first period and after that I’ve been and still am irregular. Therefore I have always suffered from chronic anemia. When I turned 20 I started to smoke cigarettes and I quit at 22. Then at the age of 27 after a rough divorce from my first marriage I began to smoke cigarettes and drink alcohol. Lord knows I do not blame anybody for these decisions but myself. When I turned 30 I decided to quit smoking and drinking (I’m not going to lie I have my glass of wine occasionally) When I remarried in 2012 and moved to NC, I was all into making my husband a happy husband by cooking him these delicious (fattening) meals; but within time we both gained weight and we weren’t even exercising as much as we were suppose too.
Well something happened!!! I had a reality check and woke up from that fantasy island I was at. I realized that I’m not a teen anymore, my metabolism is slow, and I need to get up from my booty and do something about it. So I decided to make a change. A change for me and my husband; we are now eating clean.
There is a saying that we are what we eat. I would have been a hamburger/pizza/pasta all in one lol. I made a choice for my family; I want to put in my body healthy foods. I want a healthy lifestyle, and I want to prepare my body for my miracle baby that I know God will grant me soon.
This post is not for you to judge on my past but to inspire others in starting a healthy lifestyle. On January 13, 2014 I took a picture of weight, front body, side body and back body (I will not post today I’m too embarrassed lol) But to give you a hint on where I am my height is 5 feet 5 inches and I’m my weight is 147.4 and I feel super uncomfortable in my own skin right now. My goal is to be at least 125-130 lbs.
What I will be doing is mainly cutting on all the sugars, sodas, carbohydrates, red meats. I can’t stick to one specific diet or healthy nutrition like Paleo, Vegetarian, Etc. So we are doing a little of everything. I will be blogging recipes, exercises, pictures of my progress and other healthy topics in different blogs.
Wish Me Luck!!!
