SHOULD I SHARE??????

SHOOT... I did not plan to share this but here goes...

So I decided to share some more private STUFF. I have been really neglecting myself for a while. I stopped exercising, and was on a LOVE diet. Don't get me wrong... being in love this awesome but I gained weight and because I am so happy I haven't really worried about it. However, for the past few months I was just off. I felt physically not okay. I was having heart weirdness, numbness and waking up all night for hours. I just felt bad. Headaches and then I got sick and could not get over it. So I woke up one day SCARED of how my body was feeling. I made an appt to go to the doctor. I had a complete blood work up. A EKG and that day I decided to do a medically supervised health and weight loss journey. You guys I feel so much better. I was given the green light and in my first week... I lost 14 lbs. I drank 100 + ounces of water every day. Honestly about 125!!!! I gave up all soda. Cold turkey! No more diet mtn dew. The plan said I could have 12 oz a day but I'm way too addicted to just drink one can a day so I decided to give it up totally. I wasn't going to share because it's so personal and I'm really so happy. I don't think a certain weight or size defines you. I love myself and have acceptance of me. However I wanted to feel better again and of course losing weight is a bonus and goal. So I'm day 10 and dang I feel FABULOUS. I'm sleeping again!🎉   So I will be sharing my journey here and on my blog. Why? Because YOU may need to be brave and do something you have been putting off. Is it a new job? Losing weight? Working on a problem in your life? Just let go of the FEAR and do it. Talk to yourself and be positive! I told myself I would loss 10 lbs the first week. I committed and kept telling myself FAILURE is not an OPTION. I'm at the beginning of being fit and healthy again but I'm so happy I'm FINALLY doing it. #livelifeinallcaps #weightloss #justdoit #hateshots

So I will be sharing my journey with you. I know that we all have the SAME struggles. It's REAL life. So I am not posting the program I am on publicly for NOW. I want to do it for a few weeks and give you the HONEST,  REAL...this is how it is for me. I am just like YOU!

So last week I realized my favorite clothes did not look to great and I even went to Dress Barn to get some new clothes for CHA. Seriously, they have stylish clothes in sizes from 6-twentysomething. The prices were incredible and good quality. 

The first week was the most complicated. I ate ONLY protein. Yes, lean protein. I ate out twice. Friday night at Goodwood (I had a chicken breast) and the Jazz game. It can be done! This week I am adding and having small portions of fruit and vegetables. 

TIP for this week:
DRINK electrolyte water if you are trying to lose weight. It has SAVED me! I get the Propel in grape or peach flavor (yum!) When your starting a program and your dieting your body is LIKE... woah, what is going on here! 
So this water is the perfect little secret to help you
combat the yucky feelings your body will
have when going into a program that now limits your sugars, fat and carbs. PROMISE- try it out!
I drink 16 oz a day of electrolyte water and the rest just regular water.

Now let's talk about CHA!
I leave tomorrow for the show.
I am super EXCITED.
