Eating Clean + Weights

I've been trying to eat a lot more clean lately. I feel like switching that part of my diet up is going to help my body lose weight faster. No more sugar free pudding cups!

It's amazing how beautiful your food is when you eat cleanly. I look at my prepared meals and think, "wow how pretty". My breakfast remains the same because it was always very clean. One Siggi's yogurt w/ some blueberries & Fiber One cereal. I put about a tablespoon of honey on top of that as well to sweeten it. Lunch has always been hard for me. I work from home so I have a plethora of options. Lately I've been baking a piece of fish and layering it on top of salad. Today I did a flounder filet w/ paprika on top of a bed of greens, walnuts & peas. It was so pretty! I also had half of a grapefruit as an afternoon snack.

I've also successfully cut out caffeinated coffee from my life. My husband is kind of amazed by that. I drink decaf now & not as much as I did before.

I've been doing more weight training along with cardio. I need to join the gym but I haven't gotten around to it yet. Soon I will!

My body feels good, so that's what I'm going to focus on the most. If I keep up with it, I know the pounds will drop.

It was a hard week for me last week. I don't think I did bad eating but I sure as hell didn't work out. Justin was in Boston for 4 days and I was so bored & sad without him. I'm also on my period. I feel so gross when I am on my period. I usually let myself eat a little worse & not work out. I'll let myself have the easy week. I don't think I gained but I'm not weighing myself until after my period. I can game up to 10 pounds around that time of the month & I don't feel like discouraging myself.

I am joining the gym this week though. So I am pretty excited about that.

I'm going to join a freaking gym. I am so intimidated by them so I haven't joined. I keep trying to talk my roomies into joining but none of them are proactive about it. I'm tired of waiting, so I'm just going to do it. I need NEED to lose this last 40. At least it's only 40 now.
