Yes, I’ve disappeared. I can barely keep up with one blog, two is a chore it feels like! This doesn’t mean that I’ve been failing at my fitness/health goals. Well ok I was for a little while and may have not wanted to document THAT but recently, I’ve been doing quite good. I may have even lost some weight!
I’ve been eating salads for lunch and dinner with fresh veggies and cheese and egg and either lemon juice and olive oil for dressing or balsamic vinegar.
I’ve been running 2-3 times a week (I’m finding I sometimes just can’t mentally do it. Weird right?) and walking to work every morning and back home at night.
I have stuck to my word and have gotten rid of sugar and salt and creamy foods. It took a couple weeks to completely eliminate (or at least scale back enormously!) but I’ve done it and I’m seeing results (sure, its all water weight but I retain water like NONE OTHER so therefore its a good thing!).
This makes for a very happy Ashley. I feel good about myself, and my body is starting to feel more comfortable to me. Its still no where near what I want it to be but the back fat and the side things are slowly shrinking. I hope I can keep this up!
Random thought, but don’t you hate how when you wake up in the morning and look in the mirror you look kind of trim and fabulous and then you eat a healthy breakfast of Special K and then you’re back to what you looked like the night before? I HATE THAT!
