30 days, here we go!
Here's the plan.
1. Eat at least 4 times a day, as healthy as possible
2. Follow Jillians 30 day work out plan
I have worked my butt off and on and off and on the past 3 years since Zach was born to lose weight and I finally found something that works for me. The only problem is the diet that works for me is not so good to help tone (because you can't workout while on it), so this is where Jillian is coming in.
I am going to spend the next 30 days committed to her workouts and see what happens. I have spent so much time working on losing the pounds. I am not completely committed to the diet but we will see how the workouts go for my body.
So many of my friends and family say that I am "always on a diet" and I am tired of that. I just want to reach a place where I am happy with how I look and feel.
I know that so many moms struggle with weight after having a baby and the stress that comes with having a special needs baby can make it even harder for many reasons. My doctor told me the stress from everything we had been through was keeping my hormones out of whack and she didn't really have a solution. Another reason is time, time, time. How do we find the time between doctors appointments, therapy appointments, working with our kiddos at home and just plain being tired?!?!
How do you eat healthy when at times food seems to be the only thing that makes you feel calm even if just for a moment (the guilt always comes later).
I was wondering what has worked, or not worked, for you when it comes to weight loss and healthy living?
