Beginning anew - so many successes this spring

I am a single mama. I haven’t had time for myself, and when I did have personal time, I spent it resting, eating, drinking with friends...

This spring I have had a number of successes. I bought my ex out of our house last fall and I just managed to refinance! I paid off all my short term debt this month. I fixed some important things around the house. I met someone healthy, smart and kind who loves me as I am. I feel filled with gratitude and love, and finally motivated to improve myself in this way.

My goal right now is to lose 20 pounds. I have at least fifty ultimately, but I want to do it in increments. I plan to eat low grain, low dairy, high veggie and good meats. Start the day with lemon water for hydration, a bullet proof coffee and an organic protein shake mid morning when I get hungry. A big salad for lunch and whatever I feel like having for dinner. No thank you to dessert and no night munching. Just a few drinks per week.

Here we go!

    Forgot to mention that I’m joining a gym next week! They’re running a promotion for $40 and no start up fee. Not too shabby. Xoxo

    Best of luck to you! Hopefully you can keep up the motivation, just don't let it get you down when life happens. Just keep moving forward.
