Day 1 completed SUCCESSFULLY!!!

I am sooo PROUD of myself! Yesterday, I followed the basics of the eating plan....protein and fruit/veggie every 3-4 hours and completed my first work out. Yahoo...No diet coke...no wheat products (this will be hard). I was even away from the house for 2 hours in the morning and 4 hours in the evening...still got all my nutritional, non-processed meals in! And, for the first time in a long time I am soo committed to myself! It feels soo great.

In case you are wondering...I'm following "The Female Body Breakthrough" by Rachel Cosgrove. I'm just over half-way through the book. It soo makes sense to me. She talks about strength training vs. cardio and why strength training is better for fat loss! Oh yea...I hate cardio...boring! No matter what kind I do. LOVE strength training. Muscle burns fat. So many studies have been done to validate this workout!

Today is a 15 minute stretch day and fine tuning my eating. I got through that chapter this morning. Did you know you should be drinking half your body weight in ounces to be properly hydrated! For me, that is 100 ounces of water a day. I don't think I have ever drank that much or even the 64 ounces of water in one day! I'll be focusing on that today!

Oh...and as part of being a B.I.T.C.H. I feel I need to be PROUD of my current body. This body and what I did to it brought me to this point. I can't moan and groan...drown in a daily pity party anymore. Attitude is everything...So, I bought tight fitting workout clothes yesterday...tank top and shorts and strutted my fat self into the gym. Being proud of myself starts NOW, NOT when I'm a size 8!
