Debate


I'm contemplating being naughty today and going running. The weather has been so perfect for running and I'm stuck with the elliptical. I think the thing that I really like about the running/walking is my nike tracker. I can post my progress and see my stats every time I work out. It's very motivating. Not to mention that I feel like my body was starting to change and I'm not happy about losing it. Maybe I'll just walk really fast.

On another note, I got boots! Boots that fit around my legs! Boots that are cute and were on clearance so I got an awesome deal on them! They weren't the ones that I was goaling for. These were what I really wanted.

I actually got to try them on finally because Macy's randomly had one pair that was two sizes to small, but it was clear that the calf was never going to fit. So I ended up with These instead.

The awesome thing is that they're not what I would typically want. I'm a girly girl when it comes to boots, but I branched out a little and got something that I probably would have never considered. They're very comfortable and versatile enough that I can dress them up or wear them very casual. There's still room in the footbed to add orthotics when my doctor finally has me fitted and I have to start using them. The best part is that that darker panel in the middle is all stretch, so they fit around my legs easily and they stay on! It's a miracle! You might notice from the link that they're $190 originally. I got them for $60. The boots that I wanted before were probably going to be $200 and I've never seen them for less than that, so even if I did get skinny enough, I probably couldn't have got them anyway. Don't you love when you find a fantastic deal?

Now if only I could run in them haha!

Round 2 - Day 1

Happy New Year! I am so relieved to see 2017 come to a close. It was a long, tough, satisfying year and I am happy to be done. I think the two things that were the most life changing last year were moving into our new house and the first Whole30 I completed.

It's been four months since I finished my first Whole30. I remember my delightful barista, Kristina, saying "It's so hard, but so worth it." And I couldn't describe it better. I have tried so many things to lose weight and keep it off and nothing has ever permeated my consciousness like this has. I think about what I'm eating basically always. I haven't gained any of the weight back that I lost even though I haven't considered myself on a diet since September. I am also hyper-aware of how foods affect me.

December was sort of a free-fall. We went to Disneyland and I made the conscious decision to enjoy myself. Disneyland is already a sugar wonderland most of the year, but add in the Christmas them…

Round 2 Day 5

I'm five days into my second whole30 and I am thrilled at how much easier it has been than the first round! Here are some ways that it has been better:

I have pretty much memorized what foods I can and can't have this time so it's much easier to shop and plan. I have a clear plan with my kids that helps me stress a lot less about how to include them. I established a lot of food routines the first time and can just replicate my breakfast and lunch plans now.I know better which restaurants I can eat at and how to plan for what I can eat. I am a lot more gracious with myself because I know I don't have to be perfect to get good results.I also know that these restrictions will not last forever and that I haven't said goodbye the croissants and chocolate for the rest of my life. It doesn't feel as permanent this time as it did last time. (sorta like a first pregnancy versus a second one) Considering what a junk-food junkie I was the weeks leading up to January, I fee…

Round 2 Day 8

Today was an important day. Today, just now actually, I realized that my energy levels might be better. Here's a highlights list of things I did today:
