Operation

Operation "Minus 33 by 5/3" is in full effect.

Yes, my goal is to lose 8 more pounds by my college graduation for a total loss of...*drumroll please* 33 pounds!   I also hope to lose (and keep off) at least 5 inches in the next 6 weeks.

It's like I have rediscovered my motivation!


I'm on Day 5 of the #21DFX, although instead of Day 3 with Pilates, I subbed Zumba.  I wasn't feeling Pilates and I just refused to nix the workout all together.  So I enjoyed Zumba. See my accountability pics (Days 1-5).








Although I am working out religiously, my nutrition is not exactly up to par.  I really need to get serious about this.

I paid a lot of money for a custom meal plan by Michael Morelli. I tried it for a few days last week, and I guess it paid off.  Here's a picture of the salmon and asparagus I enjoyed for dinner one night this week.


My biggest issue is that I need to watch carbs.  More like I need to REDUCE carbs.  For the past few weeks (thanks to MFP), I have noticed that, even when I stay within my caloric limits for weight loss, I am consuming way too many carbs.

Carbs are not my friend.

So, this week, starting tomorrow, I am going to reduce my carb intake.  I'm going to seriously try to stick to the meal plan.  You know what that means? No more caramel frapps from Starbucks.

Weight loss is 80% nutrition and 20% exercise right?

Well, I have lots of work to do. I can do this. I just have to convince my mind.
