I may not be smart
So last year I tackled a sprint tri and quitting smoking. I succeeded at both, go ME. We are still in 'last year' because last year is still this year but I feel like my year ended after the race, you get my drift. right? I am 113 days smoke free, no small feat and thankfully I did not cave last weekend thanks to my awesome twitter and facebook friends but that's beside the point.
Today's point is that now I need to tackle the weight. I would be happy to lose 30 pounds, ecstatic to lose 40. I don't even want to be a size 6 anymore, I want to be fit and HEALTHY and race faster. I am an emotional eater, always have been, it's not pretty. Now I am fit AND overweight, my worst nightmare. Lately my stress levels have been high, work and life so my eating has not been great and worse it's just getting more and more out of control. I need(ed) to put the brakes on. Since apparently I am incapable of simply eating smart and clean for even a single day I decided a more strict effort is required. So, I started a 9 day cleanse, go big or go home right? Have you not seen my gigantic tattoo?? haha Now before ya get all 'don't be drinking the lemon maple syrup drink' on me let me say, it's only 9 days and 4 actual days of fasting. I fast for 2 days at the start and 2 days at the end and in the 5 days in between you do eat real food and some yummy(?) shakes. If you get too hungry they have a list of good options to choose from.
So I'm half a day into day 1 of the cleanse and I'm starving! That is to be expected but just so you know, if you ever decide to do a cleanse, I do NOT recommend visiting any of the following sites:
The Pioneer Woman
and for the love of gawd DO NOT visit The Daily Bacon dont' click it.. no don't.. oh wait YOU can, I can't.
We can all start to see why I have food issues right? OY So, for those asking I'm on the 9day cleanse by Isagenix, I have done this one before. For those betting, I have made it approx 6 hours so far. Is noon too early to go to bed?
You can bet that I will not last the full two days OR that I will flip out before the end of day tomorrow, it's a crap shoot really.
That's all I got.
oops, one more thing, I noticed that I have 40 followers which to me is just astounding that people would stop by to read and then take the time to follow me. So in the words of Matty_O, thanks for reading!!!! No really, thanks!!
