Today the real journey begins

I started my shape up over the weekend but Hubby and I have a routine over the weekends that's pretty set in stone. Luckily I was able to keep the food in check and I got my workouts in so that was a huge success. But today it really begins.

I went shopping yesterday and stocked up on tons of fruits and veggies. Since I'll be home for all my meals I plan to do lots of stir frys and salads. I'm not sure about the protein part yet, I may pick up some roasted chicken while I'm out today to have a quick protein to add.

I've been reading weight loss blogs a lot this weekend and I've noticed two things. Either people do it or they don't. The ones that seemed to have slipped and gained the weight back seem to be those that first, made it a 'diet', and second, did not make it a priority. The ones who are succeeding, still, make it a way of life and make it non-negotiable. Whether they are single and have lots of free time on their hands or they are married, working, have kids, they all make it a priority. So, as my wrist reminds me all the time, do or do not. There is no try. I'm off to run.
