Currently Craving



1 // 2 // 3 // 4 // 5 // 6 // 7 // 8 // 9

Okay, someone please tell me why I have such expensive taste? It will definitely be the death of me. Or at least mine and H's bank accounts. ;] But like I said before, H and I are on a strict budget, because we have some really exciting plans for this coming year.  [I really hate when people are so vague like this, but hey. I don't want to jinx these amazing plans.] So I probably will not be getting any of these items any time soon. Sigh.

Anyways, I told you yesterday that I was going to be posting about my latest diet/workout plan. [Though, today I feel like maybe I shouldn't because on Monday I didn't even work out, and yesterday I ate like a pig. But that is beside the point, right? Right.] 

Quite a few people have asked me why I am even dieting/working out. And I just want to start off by saying that I am not trying to get "skinny." I do not think I am overweight, I just know that lately I haven't been eating healthy. I have been eating too much junk food and not working out enough, resulting in me feeling sick almost every day, and not being happy about my body. So I am dieting because I want to be healthy, and I am working out to tone up my body. [Hello--swim suit season?] But most of all, I want to feel great about myself. I want to know that I am staying in shape and that I am providing my body with the nutrients it needs to function properly.

The workout plan that I have been doing for the past week and a half is Jillian Michaels Body Revolution.


It is a 3 month plan, and I like that it is spread out over a longer period of time because you really get a chance to work your muscles up to the ending result. Each day you are doing a 30 minute workout, alternating the muscles you are working, therefore giving them some time to rest and repair before working them again. And you do a cardio workout every 3rd day. Check it out HERE. At the beginning, H was making fun of Jillian's workouts and opted to go running instead, but I made him try it with me and then he realized how hard it really is! Honestly, Jillian is kicking our butts! But we love it! I highly recommend this plan!

As far as my diet plan, I haven't been doing anything too crazy, but I have been eating healthier. I have been staying away from fast food, soda [totally struggling with this one], candy, and anything with an excessive amount of sugar. I have been eating a lot of fruits and vegetables, meat, eggs, etc. I don't really like limiting anything else, i.e. limiting calories or carbs, because then I feel like I never really get to eat food that I enjoy. But with just eliminating most of the sugary foods/drinks out of my diet, I have already felt an improvement. I always feel so much healthier and happier when I am eating foods that are good for my body. I broke my diet at the fair on Saturday and ate a funnel cake [check out my insta for pics] and while it was great for the first few bites, afterwards I just felt so sick to my stomach. It was my first really sugary and greasy food I had eaten that week, and my body totally rejected it. 

So anyway, I promise that I will get back on track with my diet/exercise plan! But I think it's important to remember not to be too hard on ourselves. If you miss a day, it's okay. Just get back on it as soon as you can. It's all about making progress, and as long as you keep trying, you will see results and you will be happier!

I would love to hear any of your diet/work-out tips that you have!
