I'm dedicated to being healthy but I'm far from perfect. In fact, I recently gained 8lbs. That's right, in the midst of my "healthiest year ever" I gained 8 freakn' pounds!
Now, there are a few excuses I can throw your way. Such as, "I fell madly in love".
Yes, the "Boyfriend" excuse. An oldie but a goodie. Unfortunately, it's true. Boys tend to eat whatever they want and rarely care about a a little weight gain.
It's far too easy to get caught up in the euphoria of a new relationship. Plus, I didn't want to seem like a complete food nightmare. I'm already, "No meat, no dairy, no gluten, no soy for me please". So instead, I found myself ordering french fries, downing cocktails, and requesting a fro-yo stop every night.
Soon, I was stretching my cheat day into cheat weekends. Those weekends quickly spilled into entire weeks. And now I'm certain that all of October must be considered a "cheat".
My second attempt to rationalize this eight pound weight gain...."I started taking birth control".
Another valid excuse, birth control is notorious for causing slight weight gain. I don't care what anyone says, birth control has always been a guaranteed five pounder. Five pounds, right in the thighs, ass, and breasts. Not a complete waste of fat however, unwanted non the less.
Since I refuse to fall out of love with the man of dreams and therefore, will not stop taking birth control I have to lose these 10lbs (notice I'm giving myself a two pound cushion for the holidays) the old fashioned way! Decrease calories in and increase calories out.
Six weeks and 35,000 calories to go......
