hookay, so . . .
I had a very strange thought come through me the recently.
I mean, I have two amazing jobs, live in a beautiful place and have amazing friends and family. most my ‘adult’ life has always been working up towards something. meaning, there was always something crappy I had to deal with until I moved, graduated, had enough money etc.
at this point in time, I am pretty content with hanging on this bar for a bit while soaking up all the experience I can get before I move on to my own projects. with all that said, there are 2 things in my life that could be better.
the one I want to talk about today is my health. as most of you know, I struggle with intuitive eating and exercise etc. out here has been no exception. I threw myself into situations that caused me both stress and happiness which ultimately lead to me staying in the exact unhappy shape that I am in. for the last while, I used the “I don’t know if im going to make it out here/I need a job” excuse . . . and now well, those excuses have completely vanished into the island air.
so, starting this beautiful month of may, I am going to put some serious effort into my health and fitness. I will be active everyday and I am lucky enough to have access to free organic food 4x per week as well as other therapies like a hot tub and sauna. not to mention the fact that I bike to work!
as usual, don’t plan on weighing myself, but I do have a certain dress I bought that ive been wanting to wear. its very . . . short and fitting. and although it looks OK . . .that just isnt good enough.
I wanna rock that bitch.
I also don’t plan to diet either and will use a general outline of how its going to go which I will share with you below:
-low grain (no GF oats)
-1.75 liters of water per day at LEAST
EXERCISE (4/30 – 5/14)
Mon/Wed/Friday – Jillian Michaels SHRED – level 1
Tues/Thurs/Sat/Sun – 3.5 mile bike ride (to work)
Other – on days off I plan to be doing something active in addition to the shred which can range from walking to the store to hiking or surfing or whatever happens
I thought about doing daily updates, but that just seems like too much work. what I CAN do is snap pictures of the meals I eat most and throw together a little recap at the end of the week. then if im really dangerous and dilligent, I can show you the dress!
yeah, that sounds good.
do you have any health or fitness goals for this month?
