Project Me: 1st Month Birthday Goal Update

It’s been about a month since I’ve started Project Me – my mission to becoming a healthier, happier me. Oh, and there’s also this little birthday goal I blurted out, too. Something about rocking a bikini on my 40th birthday – gasp! I’m happy to say that I am feeling great, working hard, and making good progress. I’ve decided not to report monthly stats – I don’t want to stalk the scale – but I can share this measurement.

It’s time for me to break up with these:

My FAVORITE and last size 16 jeans.

I can no longer wear them. While its bitter sweet – they were so comfortable – they are hanging off of my butt so far I don’t have to unbutton them to pull them on or off. I knew it was bad when I start hearing the song, “Pants on the Ground,” in my head every time I would go to put them on.

Eating well (I’m trying to eat clean 80 percent of the time), strength training, and of course running are all making a huge difference in my life. I’m 85 days away from my 40th birthday, but I’ve already decided this lifestyle won’t stop then once I reach my goal. It’s just the beginning ...

Winks & Smiles,

KEEP EM! Put them away somewhere! I threw out every single clothing item that was too big, including my last pair of size 20s and I wish I still had em! Just to stand my whole body in one pant leg. Congrats on the big changes! This healthy stuff is pretty addictive huh?

Why is it so hard to break up with the fat pants sometimes? I had the same dang problem. But lemme tell you, just like a bad boyfriend, now that the breakup is over for good, there ain't no going back! That connection is OVER!

Shelley said...
