So, yeah, I kinda fell off the face of the earth last week while I was on vacation. It was so nice to wake up late every morning and not have to log on to my computer. But, here I am and I hope I didn’t miss too much in the awesome blog world!!!!
So, getting right back in the swing of things (as I believe is the way to go – don’t start on Monday, start right now!!!), today’s post question from Fitness Cheerleader is Favourite motivational quote/image. My favorite is depicted in the picture. It reminds me that if you are having a hard time, keep going – never stop. Never look back – you are not going that way!!! Which right now, I really need to remind myself of. You see, I have been having a really hard time over the last few months since my figure competition in May. It seems as if my body now thinks that the only way that I can function and maintain a relatively lean appearance (and by lean, I mean not too flubby) is to eat very low carb and high protein. Well, I find myself eating a very moderate diet (albeit, vegan, so my protein is now coming from different sources) and I am gaining weight like crazy. I have gained 15 pounds since May. I hate that. I am not looking to be a size 00, I am looking to be healthy and somewhat lean. Yesterday, I had enough. I was tired of looking like I have downed a whole chocolate cake every day since May (I haven’t). So, I went back to tracking my food via Weight Watchers. I am just trying to keep an eye on my diet while I am making this vegan shift (2 weeks as of yesterday!). I am not counting macros, just eating extremely healthfully. We’ll see how it goes. I just need to get myself in action. The rest will come.
I’ll let you know how it goes!
