I am constantly trying new diets, new fads with dieting. I know what works for me… eating 900 calories and working out 3 hours a day!! But, lets just say that is not realistic nor is it fun. I am constantly going to events, or entertaining with friends and family so dieting is always placed on hold, and as you know when a diet is placed on hold time and time again the pounds start to pack on. I always do the complete opposite and start to work out and get back in shape just right before summer! I swear I love the competition of seeing how much stress I can put on myself in a short period of time to lean down. (eye rolls) My ideal weight is definitely 50 pounds lighter than I am. I like to be in the low 100s if possible thats when my clothes fit the best and when I feel the best. I try not to step on the scale as it can be very overwhelming. I do like to spot check to see where I am at but I don’t fixate on the number to much. I just know about what size I like to be and how I feel. I am only 5’3″ so weight definitely doesn’t carry well when I start to gain too much. I will take you along with me these next weeks leading up to my trip I plan to take and show you what I am doing to keep track of meals, meal prep, work outs and just good ole fitness motivation.
