It's still happening.

I posted here a while back on how I was going to share with you what I was going to do to get my booty back in shape.


That didn't happen, did it?

It is though. It really is.

I've been leaning toward the failure side of the scale when it comes to diet and exercise ever since Thanksgiving. Add in all the excuses of Christmas and that dumb surgery, and now, Valentine's Day, and you know I've not been a good girl. Not. At. All.

Yesterday ... I kid you not ... I think I ate over 1000 calories in chocolate and candy alone. I'm thinking I could've hit the 6000-calorie mark. Yay me. Way to go!

It's like I'm bulimic without the purging. The binging part I've got down very well. Is there such a thing as a partial bulimic? Oh yeah ... fatty.

So, as I sit here and drink my detox tea, which is hilarious to me, I'm preparing myself to hit it hard ... starting ... Sunday.

Now, before you judge, here's why: I'm starting this again.

Beau and I did 30 days of this last year. Beau lost almost 20 pounds in 30 days, while I lost about 8. It was the easiest diet I've ever done. I actually enjoyed it. It's basically a slow-carb diet with lots of beans. If you don't like beans, it's not for you. Definitely no sweets, carbs, or dairy, except on your cheat days. I'll give more details as I go through it starting next week.

I will start exercising again tomorrow. I do exercise pretty regularly, but definitely run every Saturday thanks to a great group of girls I've hooked up with. Even if I don't do all I am supposed to do during the week, I know I have to run on Saturday, which pushes me to try to run during the week. This Saturday is 9 miles. I didn't think I could run past 4 miles until I started running with these girls. Now I can run 6. Attempting the 9 miles this Saturday should be interesting.

Thank you, girls!

My exercise plan will be to run 2-3 times a week, while doing either an "Insanity" workout or gym workout 2 times a week. That equals 4-5 times a week. And, I will not beat myself up if it's 4 times and not 5.

So ... there's the plan. I've laid it out.

The reason I start Sunday and not today is because of the way the diet's laid out. It's complicated, but it'll work better that way.

For now, I'll enjoy my tea and anticipate the cleansing results. Ugh.

Wish me luck.

(I still have half a box of chocolates left, just sitting at the top of the refrigerator. Not to mention, marshmallow pops and lots of cookies. Now I'm wondering if I should just hurry up and eat them all to get them out of the house. Talk about warped thinking.)

I hate to diet. Last year I did a low carb diet and I lost 20lbs! Yay! And then I started working out faithfully about 5 months ago. And then I gained some weight back during the holidays. So, I am back at it again. Well, starting today. LOL. Looking forward to reading your progress as it goes on.
