Operation Beat the Sweet

I’ll be honest, when we first discussed the “Operation” all I could think of was jamming in Reshape with Ape headquarters (aka my basement) rocking some kettlebells!!

YEAH!

My friend, Juliet, is so much better at blogging than I am and I have a feeling she is WAY more computer savvy.  After all, she’s the chick pushing a car on her Facebook profile.  She’s pretty bad@$$.  I’ve never met her before, but we share something in common:  we both love to eat, sweets specifically.  It’s a vice, and a virtue all in one.  We’ve never met, but we’ve had a number of conversations that all started because I’ve been following her blog and realized how awesome of a meat eater she is.  When I contemplated the Whole30 in September–I went right to Hey Joob!  I remembered reading it on her page earlier in the year, she gave me recipes and advice and inspiration to take the plunge from being a vegetarian (no beef for 10 years!), and admiring her and guess what–I did it.

HOWEVER,

I have a problem–I’ve been giving in more.  I’ve gotten a little more squishy and I know what I can do when I fuel my body appropriately.  It rocks and therefore, my belly fat isn’t flubberly.

This morning, after our Thanksgiving at the cabin–don’t ask for pictures because the only image in my head is of me missing Clubber and shoving Flavor Cupcakes in my face!  Yup, that’s about it.  It’s crazy too because without Clubber around there really just was less of a reason for me to take pics.  I did go hiking with Finney at one point though and didn’t have my phone and there were some really cute pics that I missed because I was a weiner and left my phone down below…….

Anywho, this is a short journey yes–but it is to REESTABLISH everything I rocked for 30 days!

TOTALLY DUDE!

Well, there it is.  Be sure to check out Hey Joob because Juliet is just awesome.  Together, let’s see what we can come up with.  There are a few other people who committed to this journey too–you know who youare!! If anyone needs help or encouragement, we are here.

If there is something you specifically want me to address:  ASK ME.  TELL ME.  We’re all in this together.

We aren’t in this for the weight loss.  Nope.  In fact, some of the things I eat you’d be confused but seriously this is still the best I’ve felt in my life and the strongest my body has ever–EVER–been!

I can tell you right now–my belly will thank me after this weekend.  My husband literally gave my belly the analogy of Willy Wonka’s Chocolate Factory after hearing the noises it made this morning considering the foreign foods of abundance.  Time to get back on track.So, there it is:  Operation Beat the Sweet.  10 Days.  Starting Monday, November 12, 2012.  Don’t drink the coffee until you eat breakfast.  Eat breakfast at the table.  No crap.  No preservatives.  No SUGAR!!!!!!!!  SUGA!!!!  Dulce.  Don’t dip you fingers in that lagoon of chocolate–don’t even think about it!!!

Oh, and did you read my newest article???  http://www.daggerpress.com/2012/11/10/tis-the-season-to-be-cuddly-keys-for-motivation-throughout-the-chilly-days/  I love making the front page of the Dagger, especially when Clubber is there cuddling with me.  In memory of you big boy.  :)

Time to DIG DEEP and Rock it! YEAH!

Let’s do it!
