Well. Bathing suit season has arrived. And although I have been working hard on attempting to stay on track my recent move, job hunt and job have turned my routine upside down!! Before I moved I had been doing a great job at maintaining. No ups or downs. I wasn’t shocked when I jumped on the scale and the numbers were pretty much the same. Since moving though, I don’t know what the heck has happened. I think I was nesting or something…which clearly involved over eating, SNACKING (my personal downfall–when I’m bored!!), and my great friend drinking. It doesn’t help that the fast approaching summer weather makes me dream of cocktail hour on the dock and weeknight patio beers. Oh boy. My social life has never helped me in any form for getting a bikini bod.
After the long weekend up north, in my bathing suit I said hell no…changes are being made here!!! So I have been thinking of maybe trying a cleanse. I have done them in the past. Not so much as weight loss, because you are really just loosing water weight. But I have honestly done them as a flush for a clean start. I don’t think I eat too many foods that are horrible, but booze, chips and pizza probably aren’t the best. I still need to do some research to find the right one.
After doing a cleanse, as clearly cleanse diets do not provide a life long sustainably menu, it would be on to weight watchers. A big thing too will be getting into a good workout routine again as well. I was doing pretty well when I was at home. I was able to get down to the gym a few days a week, however I should have been down every day!! Now that I’m working I need to fit it in at night, which is tough sometimes. Although I do have D for support, so we can hopefully encourage each other make the whole 17 story trip on the elevator to the workout room!
Have any of you guys done a cleanse before? Or recently? If you have one that is 3 to 5 days that would be preferable. Let me know. Or if you have tips for small things to add into a routine, that have various health benefits, I would love to hear from you!!!
