So Fab Freddie (my
gay best friend) and I are embarking on a new journey that we’re dubbing a “lifestyle change,” because we both have been grossly unhealthy as of late. With work and school stress piling up as the new year turns to mid February, I’ve been much more inclined to get healthy and stay healthy long term.
With Freddie’s encouragement, I found myself heading toward the scale at work with him.
I laughed to myself and then realized it was my turn to get on the scale.
I got on the scale, nervous for Fab Freddie and my own conscious to see the results of massive holiday over-eating–and bam, there in all it’s glory was the number 2-7-0. 270 pounds. I quickly jumped off the scale, insecure in every since of the word. I racked my brain for how I could have let this happen. Mind you, this time 2 years ago I was down to 246 pounds. So I was in complete shock to realize I had gained back about 40 pounds of the initial 160 pounds I’d lost over 3 years ago.
That’s when I knew I needed to take Fab Freddie’s diet seriously, and my own health more seriously too.
I’m the type of person that needs to self-regulate and create a system of accountability to change any habit.
So I decided to try texting Fab Freddie what I was eating for dinner, which ended up being a fail, as I just ended up texting instead of sending the pic posted below.
And as you can see, I decided to up the ante and wear my forever 21 + sports bra as more incentive to get my lifestyle journey going.
I’m Wearing: Forever 21 + gray oversized tee and sportsbra.
Dinner: tuna on a bed of lettuce with baby carrots.
Freddie was right–I needed to eliminate sugar and salt from my diet, and get in my workouts, despite my full schedule.
So, I started slowly incorporating healthier foods, though, I had not completely given up sugar just yet.
So far I’m hesitant about the diet, but I have felt more energy and less hungry.
So we’ll see if Freddie knows what he’s talking about!
Updates soon mickeylettes 🙂 🙂 🙂
