The End of Operation Red Bikini = Another Beginning for Me
Well, the Operation Red Bikini challenge officially ended Friday. I was no where near my original goals I set back on January 4. I was so motivated and determined in January and February. Then I let life get in the way and March came and brought a super stressful month at work, there was Easter, birthday parties, weekend road trips, and lots of fast food. I am more conscious about what I eat and how much exercise I am or am not getting. I definitely credit this challenge and the amazing ladies I've met along the way for that. I just have a huge problem with commitment. I get bored and have lots of off days where I lose sight of my goals.
Knowing the end of this challenge was near and I wasn't even close to where I wanted to be, I felt like a total failure. So last week I made my mind up to ask for help and I reached out to Ashley Leahy. I originally began following her on Instagram. Then I saw her post a few before/after pictures of her clients and I read a few posts from some ladies they were on her macro plan and what a difference they saw. I knew I needed some structure and I also knew that I could do it if I tried. Plus there will be someone to really hold me accountable. I started my plan today and my weight this morning was 217.4. That's a 5+ pound gain in 3 weeks!! I honestly can't believe I let myself get here again. So today is my new beginning of what I hope will be a successful attempt at changing my lifestyle to healthier eating, being fit and feeling good and I will never have to 'start' again!
