Quoting and De-Bloating

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!
