i have been training and dieting my heart out since MAY. this is a little under half a year that i have been eating the same. exact. thing. every day for six meals a day. day in and day out.
the training, however, has been amazing!
in the beginning, i loved the diet! it was clean, healthy and light and made me feel really good. i have always been a clean, healthy eater but in all honesty i defintely fell a little off track this past year. over the holidays i indulged literally every chance i got! in february, my sister and i planned a last minute spring break trip to miami. i had exactly two weeks to prepare. i kicked up the cardio and made sure i hit the sac before i cancelled out the day's workout with late night munching (i have a serious problem...). i think i looked good in miami, but i fell right back into that rut and drank almost every night. wine, shots, miami vices, mojitos
|my sister.."lil bitch" ;)|

at that point things came together and i decided i was ready to compete. i got my diet and started working with my trainer and got myself back on track! a month later i was down to 12% body fat!! yeah, it happens that fast when you take out all the goodies...like way too much weekend wine and treats. :(
In the beginning the diet was sooo exciting!! i loved it! i felt SO good to be back on my healthy track and fueling my body with the clean, wholesome, nutrient dense food it deserved. but now, almost five months later...i just can't wait to change it up!
no, i won't be going back to wine and entemenn's, and i don't miss it.
i'm craving variety healthy variety...not so much junk.
when this diet is over, in sixteen days, i can't wait to eat:
- pumpkin!!! fortunately for me it will be deliciously right in season!
- warm, gooey, satisfying oatmeal...steel cut, oat bran, any variety....filled with delicious fresh and frozen fruits and cinnamon and nuts
- peanut butter....and every other form of nut butter
- apples..im going to go apple picking and devour the whole orchard
but mostly i can't wait to get back in the kitchen and cook up some delicious new meals and treats for dan and me to enjoy on the weekends. there's nothing i love more than spending a saturday night in with my man, lighting some scented candles, cooking together, sharing stories about our day or whatever, sipping some champagne and hanging out together for the night
plus, all i do is clip recipe after recipe after recipe and stuff them away like a squirrel for when the dieting is over...and after almost five months of this, he's getting a little impatient hah ;)
