Earning My Summer Body This Winter

20140116-165129.jpg

I always feel it usually takes the entire month of January to get back into a healthy eating and exercise routine.

Here we are already half way through January and I’m still struggling with being too slack with my eating choices and finding every excuse to use to avoid exercise.

I’ve decided to hold myself accountable and joined an online Diet Bet. You have to pay to enter, and have to lose 4% of your body weight in 30 days. If you don’t, you lose your money, if you hit your target weight you split the pot of the people who lost their bet with the winners. I refuse to lose my money so it’s definitely a good incentive for me.

I can always find some inspiration on Pinterest!

I loved this quote and definitely hits home with me. It’s so easy to cave when I’m tired, hungry, or not in the best mood.  I’m such an emotional eater and really need to stop and think about how hard I’ve been working and my long-term goals for the future, instead of just focusing on how I’m feeling at one specific time of the day.

I also decided to try and complete Fit Sugar’s 30 Day Squat Challenge.  My legs are definitely my trouble spot, so let’s see how this goes!

With my wedding in exactly 7 months, I’m excited to try and get into the best shape I can, so hopefully this is what I need to help me kickstart getting my butt in gear!

What helps motivate you? Any New Years challenges?

    Lord knows I could join the squat challenge! It’s so hard (at least for me) to work out when it’s cold out. As soon as it warms up I am out and about, but when it’s cold I just want to sit (& eat).

    • I’m with you! Especially because it still gets dark early, my only option is to workout in my living room when I get home from work, but putting on my pjs and vegging out normally wins!

    What a way to inspire you to workout…I def wouldn’t want to lose the bet OR the money, haha! Good luck 🙂

  3. Too funny!
    I will be horizontal running from my couch today. All of this snow is killing my workout MOJO : )
