FMS READS: Viva La Revolucion!
There are times in life when you have to face reality. The reality that you are getting older and with that, a softer body. Now, let me start off by saying I am not a fitness junkie. I am not a crazy dieter (to each his/her own) I just try to eat right and get a little exercise in here and there. I do what I can when I am up to it and lately, I just haven't been up to it. Maybe I was lacking motivation or something but I took some time off from the exercising part... don't ask how long. Well one day I ventured into my neighborhood gym and decided to weigh myself because at the time I didn't own a scale. I didn't think that I needed one...first mistake. After seeing the number, I immediately felt all of the weight that appeared out of nowhere...well not nowhere but let's just say I wasn't expecting to see the number that showed up on the scale. Needless to say, I was displeased. That was last month. It was an April that was filled with homemade baked treats every weekend and I fooled myself into thinking that if I made the treats myself that I would actually regulate my sugar intake and well...that didn't happen. That sugar was right there on my thighs. From that moment, I decided that there would be no more baking in this house until I earned the privilege again...I still haven't. Now, I've never been a dieter, I hate depriving myself of the yummy foods that I love. I tried that in January with the whole 30 aka a whole nightmare. I'm sure some people had great results...Me? Well I just say meh. It was too much of a challenge but I did it for the whole 30 days. Since then I've contemplated other plans and haven't started any of them. I like to eat. I can't help it. For the most part I eat right but I have a sweet tooth accompanied by low will power and I love all the things that aren't good for you, I mean have you ever had Melt Shop? But I need to get on track and here is where I am.
Yep I said a lot to get to the point (don't you hate when blogs do that). So starting today, I'm doing the 22 Day Revolution by Marco Burgos, trainer to the Queen Bey. This revolution is 22 days of eating a plant based (vegan) and gluten free diet. I know, I know...I said that I don't like to restrict myself...but I'm also someone who is willing to try something when I've seen proven results. And hello Beyoncé at the Met Gala. Yes Gawd! Now I am realistic, Beyoncé has a completely different body type than I do and most importantly a better financial profile. I don't have a trainer or a personal chef but I don't even think that with those luxuries I'd have that sickening body but a girl can dream can't she?
For this new plan I am focused as long as I don't have to eat fake meat. I'm ready so join me as I go on this new venture to a newer and better me because who doesn't want to look better naked...and with clothes on.
