40 days to fit: a food & lifestyle diary

First and foremost, I have come a long way. I am not here to be all long winded – because when it comes to blogging I am a woman of few words. Even after losing 30 lbs, I find myself relapsing back into old ways sometimes. For example, Halloween candy, from day to day I eat none of this because as I experienced this weekend, I cannot eat solely 1-2 pieces but more like 10-15 at a time. Outrageous I know, but I have a theory that refined sugar makes one absolutely crazy. So, in addition to the workouts I have now learned to love, I will be keeping a photo food diary to hold myself completely accountable. For me, it really isn’t about “skinny.” More like cancer free, diabetes free, etc. I want to set myself up for future success starting now. Life is way more difficult when you have to be fighting yourself in the kitchen. Believe me. Been there, done that. Food addiction and other eating disorders are a real & ugly thing. I would know fighting food addiction head on now for several years. It’s all about developing a healthy… BALANCE. That word is everywhere, yet as a society we are raised to believe in the only way to do something is through extremes. This project is about me. Maybe no one will read, or maybe it will inspire some along the way. Xoxox N
