Now I'm trying something different. I'm going to try to focus not on losing weight but just on some healthy living principals. It was my boyfriends idea! I printed out a calendar and am tracking the following: days I do cardio/weights, had ice cream or "bad" froyo (with candies or not plain -- side-note: frozen treats are my favorite things), ate out, and lastly had a Starbucks treat (for those that don't know, I work at Starbucks and I love treats so it's not the best combo for losing weight or being healthy).
I should be able to focus on a few things rather than 60 things.... well pounds! So far I feel pretty good. I think by the end of a few weeks I'll be able to see that I'm able to stay on track most of the time and that it's totally okay to eat out occasionally or have a yummy cake pop.
BTW: Has anyone seen the great ideas on Lauren Conrad's blog for her bikini bootcamp? There are some great tips and yummy recipes.
One of the tips that I'm going to try is to do 50 crunches and a 60-second plank in the morning and at night. Sounds REALLY hard to me but I'm going to try and I'm sure eventually I'll be moving on to harder variations. Pinterest has a great link for plank variations and I have a bender ball and exercise ball for the crunches :)
(This picture has always cracked me up! I never got the whole planking on random surfaces, lol)
