Susie’s weight loss plan = eating healthy (raw foods), fear and kayaking. Fear gets the heart pumping and kayaking burns the calories.
Hopped on the scale today and after a less than stellar day on Sunday, I am still down 5 lbs!! Holy Cow Einstein getting rid of candy and cake and cookies, replacing that with fruit and protein and water really does work. Add to that eliminating boredom eating, celebration eating, sad eating, and stress eating AND not eating crap till I’m sick and viola – weight melts off. Did I mention this is only my first week and Friday night I did partake in a few cocktails?? Yes, I’m rockstar! I’m not even adding an exercise regimen to my day because truly I think we get enough. I will tell you that we’ve returned to our pre-Elly days and eat dinner between 4/4:30!! That gives me plenty of time to run off dinner and I’m not too exhausted to fix a fantastic meal. That’s it. There is no magic to it. Just power of the mind over the taste buds.
So, I’m elated for me AND I’m elated for my friend, Scandinavian Mom, she lost 4.8 lbs this past week. Please fly by her blog Happy Birthday R!!!and wish her a very very happy birthday!!! She has a lot to celebrate today!!! xoxoxo
yep, I’m committed. I’m just gonna do it. You know what the catalyst was? I was listening to someone lament how no matter what they did they were overweight. It’s the same thing to listen to someone bemoan the fact that they can’t gain weight, only slightly less annoying! =0 Is that really a problem? Eat all the cookies you want and darn it, still skinny? What a horrible lot in life, eh?? We are not victims of our bodies, if you are too fat, you eat too much and don’t excercise enough … period. Sure genes play a role, but it just means you have to work that much harder.
I eat too much junk. Funny because I’m a health food nut, but I supplement the healthy food with all the crappy food. I love cookies, always have. Love chocolate chip cookies dipped in milk … but do you know what has happened? I eat without even realizing I’m eating. I’m not even enjoying the junk food. I eat when I get pissed off too. And when I’m stressed, and when I’m celebrating … and and and.
So, myself and a friend across the globe in Sweden are going to shed our fat … it’s going to melt away. We are in a competition to see who can lose the most. And we are both going to come out of this svelte and HOT. Do you know why? Because we are committed and because we are competing and because we are strong. A cookie has control of me? Really? I don’t think so. When my book is published and I’m doing book tours, I want to do them weighing 105 lbs!!! I don’t want to look good for having 11 kids, I want to look as though I have none! I want to catwalk at the beach and the pool without thighs rubbing against each other. So that’s what I’m going to do. And, I’m doing it publicly so if in 8 weeks I still am a cow, then well, I suck and have no self control and ScandinavianMom (on Youtube) is the winner. But anyone who knows me, knows that no way in hell will I let that happen!!
My secret? Eat less junk, more protein and keep playing with the kids. No Hollywood Diet, no Fasting, no Cheat Days … just living and making healthier food choices. Sorry City Market, I dunno who will be buying the Chocolate Lovers Chocolate Chunk Cookies … to die for!!!
Be sure to stop by and say “Hi” to my Swedish Friend … Soon To Be Hot Momma!
Ok, the competition has begun … Scandinavian Mom and I are in an 8 week competition to see who can lose the most weight. Apparently she’s quite the competitive person … but She “Can’t Touch This”!!! =0 So I talk smack throughout the video … I catch some Adorable Elly footage and Maddy & Rowdy support me as I die doing Turbo Jam!! =0
