New Feature!: Fit Gluttony

Back in the day, when I was a fit glutton.
I think I took my role as "the Glutton" too seriously.  I indulged too much. Don't get me wrong, I eat healthy 90% of the time but weight snuck up on me. Yeah, I had a baby since then but I started slowly gaining weight before the baby, so that isn't a good excuse. I kinda...well, let myself go. Love kicked in and when Steve and I moved in together I had to cook differently. When I lived with my mom my favorite meals were salads and lean proteins. Steve adores Mexican food an loathes salads unless it is what he calls Crouton Soup (it is a small amount of lettuce, then an abundant amount of croutons, and tons of dressing). Cooking for us became hard. We had totally different ideas of what a good meal was. I adapted to him. Cooked things he liked but that made me gain weight. Steve is now a vegetarian so many nights I either cook my healthier meals or I end up going on carb overload.

This year, I vowed to myself to regain my health. I had some health issues and it is better for me to be healthy. I joined a gym last week. Mainly for my children (I wrote about it on my other blog) but also for me. I want to be healthy so I can be around for a long time. Be a positive example and I need to learn to balance.

Will I indulge still? I sure will. After all, I have to review amazing foods for you all. But, moderation not indulgence will be my new motto.

I have been hitting the gym and loving it.
I burned a ton of calories on Wednesday doing spin and weights!
My goals:
  • Hit the gym 5-6 times per week. 
  • Eat healthy 95% of the time
  • Try new and challenging work outs
  • Try new and exciting dishes
  • Blog!!! Gotta keep myself accountable. 
 Wish me luck!
