Hi. I'm back.
Are you still here? Because if you are, you're amazing!
It's been three months since my last post announcing a hiatus from the blog. I took time off to be with my family, enjoy the holidays, work on my book, paint in my studio and frankly - eat a bunch of Christmas comfort food in peace. I've been snacking on sweet holiday treats and enjoying dinners with friends and family where the main ingredients were brisket and beer. I know, I know. It's a far cry from my previous diet - you know - the one that helped me lose 75 pounds?
I've put on some weight, I've gained a few inches in my waist and while I'm not so far gone that I can't run a 5K, I'm certainly not feeling optimal. I've continued to attend boot camp classes and I've stayed in fair shape. Now, after a mini bacchanalia of carbohydrates and sugar, I'm ready to begin again.
So, I'm back. Today, I dusted off my juicer, took my measurements and created a 30 day calendar to chart my progress. Starting today, I'm doing a 10-day green juice fast. I did one last spring and LOVED it. I felt good, I shed a bunch a weight and it really kick started my final round of weight loss. After my 10 day juice fast I will add raw dinners back onto the menu and continue to juice through out the day. I will continue this for 20 days. I will still attend boot camp 3 times a week as I have always done and I'm also gearing up for a couple of spring 5ks and a 10k. And, most importantly, I'll be blogging about it here. I've missed you all!
30 Day Goals
1. Shed the winter weight
2. Cleanse my system
3. Give my digestive tract a break
4. Kick start the spring with clean eating and a clear mind
It's good to be back!
