Back to Basics

I've been wanting to go back to eating clean for awhile, but just haven't had the willpower or motivation to do it. I remember how good I felt when I was eating clean from the end of October through the winter. More energy and a flatter tummy were among the perks. I won't talk specific numbers, because nobody wants to hear a "skinny" person bitch about weight, but I'm up a little and I don't like how it looks. So, yes, I want to lose some weight but I won't put a number on it. I want to look and feel better mostly. I want to run as topless as I can legally get away with. :)

This afternoon we went to the pool at the gym after strength training and I was talking to Jake about this. He says I'm crazy and, "Ripped like Jesus' girlfriend." (Ripped like Jesus is a common phrase for us, so I guess we're making the assumption that Jesus had a ripped girlfriend at some point). I almost fell over laughing with that one. But that's on the top 10 list for why I married him- he's a funny one.

So, after I finish my beer tonight, I'm back to eating clean. I'm actually looking forward to it. Mostly. Maybe my running will improve if I'm using better fuel.

I could eat clean too if it wasn't for beer. And vodka. And chocolate.

I totally understand I'm in the same stage right now!! Maybe we can be each others accountability!!
