Already lost moTivAtioN with your weight loss/get healthy resolution for 2013? Well Robynn and I talk about weight loss a lot and we came across something this week that lines up exactly our philosophy, so I had to share! Check out this short and informative video by Bobby Flay: Bobby Flay Fit
I don’t believe in diets and I couldn’t agree more with Bobby that you shouldn’t have to give up the foods that you love. Eat what you want…just not as much as you want!!
So don’t throw in the towel for good. Continue business as usual, and cut corners when you can. The most important thing is to NEVER sacrifice so much that you end up feeling deprived of the foods that you love. We all know that is a recipe for disaster. I don’t know about you, but thinking about giving up chocolate always results in me gorging in it later :-/
Have you stayed focused on the goals you set for yourself to accomplish before the summer months hit? Are there areas you need to target as the weather warms up and the BBQ’s get grilling? I think we all start out with great intentions to succeed, but somehow LiFe just gets in the way of achieving our goals.
For me the struggle continues to be diet and exercise. I’m not going to lie…It’s been weeks since I wrote a post about starting The Lazy Girls Workout and this lazy girl has not worked out OnCe since that day. That is unless you count a few games of freeze tag around the yard with my son, but other than that…NoThInG!
I think when life gets too hectic to find time for ourselves or when we are finding it hard to get moving (in my case literally GeT MoViNg!) it is important to find things to use a motivators. For me it is going to be my new right out of the box Lands End bathing suit. Don’t give up on your goals…we all have time to get back in the GaMe!

Are you ever trying to break a bad habit, but the hAbit is always staring you down? I was having this issue over the weekend with a red velvet cake. Although I knew there were a tremendous number of calories in every slice and how sluggish it made me feel AFTER I ate it…I still wanted more.My solution? The cake went in the trash. I eNjoYed two small slices over the weekend, but I won’t feel guilty for throwing something away that is only going to make me feel worse. Back
in the day and I would have never thought to do such a thing. Knowing that there are people in the world in nEEd of something to eat would have kept me from tossing it. However, keeping unnecessary snacks and junk food around the house would just be contributing to another big problem in this country, weight management.
Sometimes we have to take eXtreMe measures to avoid being stared down by our tEmptAtions. In the end, we need to do whatever it takes to set ourselves up to SuCCeeD.
