The Challenge

January 15, 2012

I don’t want to sound like a quitter, but juicing was not for me. Sure, the freshly squeezed orange juice and apple juice was delish, but the whole purpose of the juicing concept was to consume vegetables in a more digestible form – and I can’t drink cucumbers and carrots. It just wasn’t happening.

So I am going back to the basics: eating healthy and working out. Focusing on a plant-based diet with no more fast food and junk. Seems simple, right? We shall see.

I’ve joined my gym’s 12 week challenge to help stay motivated. Today I weighed in, got measured, took the “before” picture…it was a very humiliating but necessary process. I gained about 60 lbs. during my unsuccessful attempt to have a healthy, bouncing baby. I’ve lost about 25 lbs. since then, but this is not attributed towards me actually doing work but to an amazing little pill that compensates for my lack of thyroid hormone.

Behold, my “before” shot:


I’ll save you the monstrosity of my biggest loser-style post-baby bod. This is only operation face, after all.

12 weeks…if all goes well I will be happy to show you my slammin’ bikini ready abs in the spring. God speed…
