Let the Journey Begin

Today's the day, well today is prep day, tomorrow we start ..... but for real this time. Last time I tried the "loose the chubby" project I lasted all of 2 days because I really wasn't equipped with the right stuff. I didn't have the snacks prepared and so when the munchies called the potato chips answered. This time I'm taking the necessary precautions and completely emptying our house of all temptation... if there is nothing "yummy" to eat, we'll have no choice but to go for the healthy things.

I have been talking about it for about 2 months. I am tired of the clothes that used to fit, being snug, and quite frankly pissed that it has gotten to this point. I have always been a chubby girl, and I'm totally okay with it. I'm not looking to be a certain size or shape, I'm just tired of being blah. I want to be healthy, feel healthy, and I'm not gonna lie, look good. I still have a baby bump despite the fact that little man is going on 5 months old. It's time for some action!!

Hubs is on the boat too, he is ready to commit to a total lifestyle overhaul and quite frankly we have both gotten to an all time "bad" since being married for 3 years. It's so easy when your feeling loved and adored by your spouse to sit down with a bag of sour cream and onion chips (me) or a entire case of Oreo Cookies (him)

So tonight we are off to the grocery store, we are fully stocking up our fridge with yummy, healthy snacks and nutritious options ... I've spent the day ridding our house of the junk, everything from the freezer, fridge, and pantry are cleaned out of the crap.... so . . . here we go 

Adios Mis Amigos,


  1. I know what you mean--I've been fighting that battle for a while, and recently hit a backslide. I'm recommitting this week though! Planning ahead is definitely key. Best of luck to you both!!

  2. I hear you on that one. Maybe I'll join you in the challenge. I've also gained so much weight I have clothes that don't fit. I'd be interested in what you are doing to slim down, so I decided to become your latest follower. Good luck.

  3. Good luck to you both! I was a junk a holic for ages, I mean I still have my oops occasionally. However, me and the kiddo eat healthy all the time now. Heck, I feel great. I do go to the gym all the time now. I could feel a difference with just a change in my diet though. Hold your head high and go go go! ;-)
