Like always I am keeping it real! So I am going to do something I have been wanting to do since I had my second little boy; a body challenge with before and after pictures and a reveal after 60 days. There is no real diet, cleanse, pills, or gimics. I am doing a collabo if you will, of what I know works for me and trying out a few new things I am curious about as well. I DO NOT WEIGH MYSELF! And if any of my dietician/medical friends are reading this I am sure they will cringe LOL.
I know health and wellness are the keys to life but if that means I can’t eat cookies or have a beer then I’m out. I love smoothies and salads but I also have to have cheezits and cheese almost daily. Trust me I have come a long ways from my TV days of drinking magnums of wine with my coworkers.
Anyway, we are going to the beach in less than 60 days so I am wanting to lose a few pounds. I am going to try a little harder to eat less and workout more. Notice I did NOT say eat better. If there is one thing I know about myself it is that denying me food and drink is a sure fire way to get me to be a hangry biatch and aint nobody got time for that. But I am making time everyday to excercise even if it is to walk to the neighborhood park with the boys.
Bare with me I am pretty scattered and not sure where to start. Instead of giving you a grocery list, some pretty colored containers, telling you how many calories you need, how much tea to drink and what kind of toilet paper to use. I am just going to say everything in moderation. If you are better with a balls to the wall approach and need to follow a diet, cleanse or whatever then do that. I just know I like seeing what other people do and maybe I am weird for sharing this but whatever here it is I really hope you all can laugh along with me because after reading this back I think it’s pretty dang funny.

Last night I tried my first “It Works” Body Wrap! I wrapped my stomach hips and tricep flaps. I am so excited to finish the application. One box comes with 4 wraps and you can cut them and place them anywhere from the neck down to help tighten, tone & firm your skin. I saw some results with my first time but I have 3 more to go and you can only wrap every 72 hours. I am drinking lots of water and using the defining gel that came with my kit twice a day and massaging that into my problem areas to get faster results. Stay tuned for my reveal.
The food part I am sure is controversial because somedays I am healthy and others I am NOT. So here is my food diary for a week. (I always have at least 2 cups of coffee & water in the morning! Also I am trying to workout on an empty stomach.)
I already started backwards with a cheat day on my first day. We had Jimmy Johns after mass and then Arby’s roast beef ya ya ya I know “we have the meats!” When I decide not to cook I let my husband decide where to go because on the weekends I am tired of making decisions. Also I cant remember everything hello I am chasing after 2 kids. And I do the mom thing that you aren’t supposed to do and finish their food. Finally I gave up chips and salsa my #1 fave for lent.
Thursday: Breakfast burrito, steak & feta salad and like 4 baby snickers from work
Friday: Spinach chicken salad with strawberries, pecans, tomatoes and blue cheese, 1.5 massive M&M/ chocolate chip cookies from our fave local bagel shop,
1 tosada & 2 beef tacos, Dr. Pepper
Saturday: Scrambled eggs with turkey bacon and 2 english muffins with REAL butter, queso, Stella beers and fireball shots. See what I mean healthy then NOT!
Sunday: No doubt fireball and mommying do NOT mix! But we get up anyway put on some coffee, watch Star Wars and eat McDonald’s egg mcmuffin, then 1/2 digornos pizza, and chef salad with ranch and 2 magic cookies for dinner.
Monday Zoe’s orzo salad with pita bread, popcorn & cheezits
Breakfast burrito and green apple and 2 chick-FIL-a sandwiches with chick-fil-a sauce boom!
So when I say I mix it up I really mean it. I do NOT do the same workouts over and over. I know running gets you in the best shape but I will pretty much do anything but run. Also I make healthy choices and I make junk choices. So judge away. You only live once right?!?!
Now the really crazy part I am going to show myself in a bikini before and after. I am really mortified and scared but I am also strangely motivated by fear. I have learned so much from facing my fears. One of which was starting this blog. So here it goes.
Just Happy Mommy
