the title is ironic because i've been fighting something for the last three days (boo!!).. but i mean eating/exercising wise. ;)
the truth is, between livin' la vida loca and being a complete bum i've managed to let about 30 lbs. creep back on me. with PCOS it's very difficult to lose and maintain weightloss, so i was proud of myself for keeping off the original 45 lbs. i'd lost a few years back for as long as i had. i know that i can do it again. i wasn't about to get to my original high weight! candice introduced me to a very useful website called my fitness pal and i'm hooked. you use it along with whatever diet and exercise plan you're doing to track weightloss and calories, etc. there is also a forum to share stories, get inspiration, and ask questions. never really a fan of fad diets and crazy workouts - i've always been about making lifestyle changes in order to lose weight and keep it off. i've started by keeping a food diary. what a wake up call that alone has been! it's easy to lose track of what you're eating and how much!! after plugging in my current weight and my goal weight the site gave me a recommended calorie intake. between that and some light exercising i have already lost 6 lbs! i have 35 lbs. to lose in order to reach my goal weight.. i'll keep you posted!
in other news, like i mentioned, i've been a little sick. i have some sort of chest congestion and today my head is a little stuffy. i am trying to take it easy and rest when i can. please continue to pray for me and think good thoughts!! i have a 6o hour work week and a couple photo shoots session and i don't want to push myself too hard. thanks! xo
