Slap Me, Please!

Those are the words I told my co-workers last week. “Next week, If you see me with M&M’s, donuts, or anything that is bad for me, slap it right out of my hands.”  Like some of you, I struggle with eating health and exercising.  Oh, I give it a good try, succeed for a few weeks and then give up.  I get sidetracked by a crazy week, a sick child, a trip out-of-town, or just anything out of my normal routine.  Then I am right back to where I started. So, since I am procrastinating my homework this weekend and starting a blog, I thought the first think I should put out there is this plan.  For the next six weeks, I will eat healthy and exercise.  Why six weeks, you ask?  Well, because I am pretty sure that I read somewhere that it takes 6-8 weeks to form a habit. (Or I completely just made that up.)  And, that is also when the circus and I are headed on vacation.

The plan is to exercise five days a week by walking/jogging, 21 day fix dvd or Piyo dvd.  PS-If you need to borrow an exercise dvd, odds are, I own it, so just ask. : )  I will eat by using the 80/20 rule, cutting out most sugar and bad carbs. For those of you that may not know, the 80/20 rule is a great one to try and live by.  You eat clean and healthy for about 80% of the time and cut yourself some slack for about 20% of the time.  I am NOT a cook, so I will mostly be asking my sweet husband to grill some lean meat for dinner and I’ll be stocking up on some fresh summer veggies.  If you know of any tasty and easy recipes, let me know. I’d love to try them.  My end goal is to tone, slim the baby belly pooch, and feel just better.  I don’t know about you all, but I am sick and tired of being tired, having no energy, being moody, and fighting my dull, broken out skin. I know all of these issues are caused by my eating habits and it’s up to me to change it. So, here goes nothing!

One more thing, I have ordered Plexus and will be adding it when it arrives. I know, I know, EVERYONE is selling Plexus these days.  Let me be the first to say that I’m skeptical, but I am giving it a try and will let you know about my results.  I hope some of you will follow along on this journey with me and help hold me accountable. Lord knows I need it!!
