Well I’m 95% sure that I lost the weight loss challenge. Damn…
BUT I lost 18lbs, found my funny again, know the secret sauce to weight loss (eating right and exercise- who would have thunk it??), and made some new friends along the way. I’d call that a win! That $500 would have been nice…. I think I’m going to go ahead and pay myself that reward. What do you think, B? 😂
But for real y’all, I have made a plan to continue this journey and it is realistic for my lifestyle!
I’m going to work out 5-6 days a week. Eat clean throughout the week. Saturday will always be a rest day. And on that day I can eat what I want (in moderation). Sounds easy (it won’t be)! I know there will be some hiccups, but overall this is a plan I can stick to.
I truly appreciate all of the well wishes, compliments, and occasional kicks in the bootay (I’m looking at you E 😘). You guys will never know how important your support has been over these past 6 weeks.
The battle is over, but I’m still fighting the war. And since I’m kind of a badass now, I’m definitely going to win the war. Bring it. 💪🏻💪🏻
Now let’s talk about Lent. I don’t typically give things up for lent. It wasn’t a practice that I did in my church growing up. I love what the practice represents and if Jesus can give up so much for me, then surely I can give something up for 40 days.
This year I am joining my friend D.O. And giving up sweets. 😬😬 I mean this blog wouldn’t be nearly as entertaining if I didn’t have something to gripe about. Am I right? So here goes nothing, y’all.
I want all the sweets. All of them. It’s not because I have been eating tons of sweets, it’s because they are now off limits. 🙄
I might have slipped yesterday at Andy’s frozen custard and swiped a bite of sass’s peanut butter jackhammer…. sorry Jesus. I took the bite before I even realized what I was doing. 😕😕
I’ll keep y’all updated on my progress both in bodybuilding (I’m calling it body building because I am not focusing on weight loss, I’m focusing on building the body that I want) and on my new unsweetened world.
Let’s talk soon, K?
