Using An App To Help Me Stay On Path

Hello there you blank beautiful screen. It's been awhile. I took a little time last week to just step back, disconnect, and honestly breathe. I felt myself needing a breather and a moment to adjust to going back to work (part-time), Lil Man going to school full time, soccer and running for him, and just daily life. You know what I mean.

My typical morning is starting to consist of some type of early morning workout, rushing home to get lunches made, making sure I'm back in time so hubby can get to work, grabbing a quick shower, getting Lil Man to the bus stop, finally getting breakfast for me, packing my work bag, getting laundry started, cleaning up the kitchen, taking the dogs in and out and in and out...  and if possible I try to get caught up on email/social media before I head into work.

But I'm back and feeling a little more like I have things under control. I think I'm finding

Hoping To Have An After

(confession time) Back in 2014, I took before pictures. I believed I tried a 30 day food challenge. And I never took an after picture. Why? Because I never made it through the 30 day food challenge.
In fact, through 2015 I GAINED weight. I can't blame it all on injuries or lack of exercise. Basically, it's been my nutrition - my lack of proper nutrition.

And after a year of struggling with weight gain and body image, I've decided it really is time that I do something about it... for me. I'm tired of feeling bleh.. and not liking the image looking back at me.

I'm not looking for perfection. I know I'll never have that. I have loose skin and stretch marks (I gained 50ish pounds with Lil Man). So I'm not looking for the perfect bikini body. I'm looking for my bikini body. I'm looking to feel comfortable in my running gear - in my own skin,

I'm not eliminating food groups or doing anything 'radical'. I have a game plan. I just need to put it into action. My focus is on making the right food choices in the correct portion sizes.

I'm using an exchange system - so many grains, fats, fruits, dairy, veggies and proteins a day. You get the idea. (I believe there is a popular program out there that uses containers that's kindof the same principle I think.)

But, I think this will work for me.. I just have to put it into action...

The before...
