I need a jump start.

So sassy.

As a result of all this adjusting to being a full time working person, I have been eating everything in sight. Sourdough Jack? Yes. Macarons? Let's do this. Hot dog at the corner bar? Yeah - that's happening! And I feel yuck.

Not yuck in the "I'm ashamed of myself!" way, yuck in the physically don't feel great. My energy is suffering, my pants are tight and I am not liking the rear view, ifyaknowwhatimsayn'.

This week is going to be a transition week followed by a detox. I am going to start eating more vegeterian meals, cut down on the drinking (we have two events this week that are drinking-centric) and get down to one caffeinated beverage a day. In addition, I'm going to add a walk two days this week in the morning before work. 

Sunday will be a detox day - I will cut out sugar, caffeine and focus on whole foods. Juice, whole grains and fruit will be happening. So sorry Sunday night crew, I will be cranky and staring at your pizza/cupcakes in longing!

After that I will continue the detox through Tuesday and slowly reintroduce meat and dairy. I know that a jump start like this is what I need to get back on track - I need to reset my palate, eat clean/healthy foods and get back to focusing on my health. 

Weigh in Monday will return next week!

Hey- come to the 11:30am NIA class at NIA Moves on Pecore this Friday! It will be a great part of your jump start. I love your matter-of-fact, simple approach to getting back on the track you wanna be on. Keep rocking- you are inspiration!

Yay for you!! I'm so inspired and impressed with your plans! I would definitely struggle... no sugar? No alcohol?? Exercise? Exercise BEFORE work (indicating getting out of bed earlier than would otherwise be required)??? Just make sure you don't waste your one caffeine beverage per day - nothing instant or cheap! I may have strong feelings about caffeine. You're some kinda super powered awesome.

Hope you get through Sunday okay, if you need any help achieving the perfect "I want your food" face I'm sure Tex could provide some invaluable pointers!
