That’s pretty much it. I went back to eating really healthy the way I did last spring when I got fit for summer.

Over the last couple months I have been so frustrated with my lack of progress with my fitness and I know that might seem trivial or unimportant but it affects all areas of my life, and well, it’s just important to me. I couldn’t understand what I was doing wrong. I realize now, I was in denial. I was eating poorly.

I have lost 3 pounds over the last 4 days. That’s huge for me. Here’s what I did: I ate 3 healthy meals, no desserts (not even the little dark chocolate squares), minimal snacks, very minimal bread/carbs, no late night snacks/mini-meals. It was hard. But every day the scale went down.

Day: Monday Tuesday Wednesday Thursday
Breakfast: Blueberries with greek yogurt & granola Spinach banana muffin Carrot/orange juice, banana, spinach & strawberry smoothie Nature’s Path Raisin Bran
Workout: 30 min Walk/Run 90 min Yoga Class 30 min Walk/Run 60 min Spin Class

Steps: 11,103 10,064 11,064 10,717
Dessert: No No No No
Eat after 8: No No No No

It was encouraging that I got a few new subscribers on Bloglovin’. I really think it helps to fell like I’m doing it “with” you.
