Oh man. Does the grocery store have it in for my healthy eating or what? They strategically placed this display for Cadbury Creme Eggs, which are only my favorite candy EVER, right next to the check out lines at my local Kroger. It’s like they were thinking of just me when they placed this. They knew I wouldn’t be able to walk past it without picking up a hand full (or five) of the best candy in the world. But I have something that Kroger doesn’t know I have this year. Willpower. And determination to accomplish my 2013 goals. I am still on my journey to my goal weight and I cannot let my beloved candy stand in my way. I didn’t say that I’ll never have one during this Easter shopping season. Hell, I’ll probably have quite a few. But I will not let it ruin me. I will not give it that control. I want to reach my goal weight of 115-120 and come hell or high water, I’m gonna do it and stick with it. But man, those Cadbury Creme Eggs are delicious. Do you have a certain candy that can break you? Or a certain salty snack?
On the topic of losing weight and trying to stay away from my favorite candy…I have owned Jillian Michaels’ Body Revolution for like a year and guess how many times I have completed the 90 day workout? Zero. Absolutely zero times. So when Jeff and I return from Las Vegas I am throwing myself into 90 days of Jillian Michaels Body Revolution. I hate to. I want to. I need to. So I should have plenty to tell you all each day between marathon training and Body Revolution, graduate school, a full time job and having a family…sometimes I think I have bitten off more than I can chew. But I just keep on chewing…
I have actually only made it to week 2 or 3 on Body Revolution, which is typical of me and also totally pathetic. I have a tendency to have grandiose goals and dreams for myself and then always let myself fall flat on my face when it comes time to follow through with anything. But this time, I am putting it all out there. I am going to write about it and keep myself accountable to this goal. I will beat you Jillian Michaels!
Plus, I secretly want my body to look like yours. All toned and petite. I could pull that off. Easy. I will also take the dreaded before/after pictures and post them here so you can all poke fun at me and understand why I hate my body. I’m sure it’ll be super fun!
