Sweaty Workout Head

Here is my sweaty workout face! Hopefully soon it will be skinnier. I have started a journey in my life to eat better food for my body, things that are closer to what they started out as (read fresher veggies, less fake meat) and to exercise what I have if only to be in good shape so I can go up and down these hills of San Francisco and not be out of breath.

I also am a little vain, and want to look my best. Especially for my sister's wedding pictures! It is coming quick(yeah I know it is 4 months away, but still, that is a blink of the eye!)

Also, my birthday is coming up, my 30th! It is true! I want to be in good shape for that too. I want to be healthy! So, less bread, less potatoes, less fried food(try hardly any because I NEVER feel good after deep fried food, yuck) and more good veggies and baked items. One thing I don't think I can give up, but will cut back on a little is cheese. I LOVE cheese. To a fault, sometimes.

So I have also added a workout to my day, and my goal is to work out Monday through Friday and take the weekends off. So far so good, but I really wanted to work out in the mornings and I am having a really hard time pulling myself out of my bed! I think it will motivate me more on Friday so I can get myself up and going so I don't have to workout at night. I really like to get my workout done and out of the way, but that bed is just SO enticing sometimes!

Its all about what you want though. I really believe that the motivation to do things lies within you and all you have to do is call it up and really believe in yourself. You make all of your own choices and if you choose to be healthy and work hard you will accomplish those things. That is not to say I am perfect(obviously!) but I want to do these things and I am trying for the power of the mind, you know!

About a year ago I decided I wanted to get in the best shape of my life before I hit 30. My best little helper has been the calorie counter app. on my phone. I have lost about 40 pounds so far. Good luck!
