Getting Healthy

I mentioned in the previous post that hubs and I have CHANGED the way we eat. I say it that way because what started off as "just a diet" has lead to just changing our life styles, how we shop, and how I cook. I am, by no means, any type of expert at nutrition or exercise but I did want to put out there what worked for us!

Last year, hubs and I were married in July (right in the middle of bathing suit season, yikes) and I didn't really do a pre-wedding fitness plan. I don't really care that I didn't because it's not like I was wearing a thong walking up the aisle, but around December (you know, the holidays) that I really started noticing a change in my body. As I have said before, I love love LOVE to cook. I love to scour the internet for new recipes and would often surprise hubs when we got home with braised short ribs with goat cheese polenta or some other really decadent dinner. My stomach was getting happy but the fact that I could no longer fit into my jeans was becoming a problem!

I was blog surfing one day and found this post at a BEAUtiful Mess and got really interested! It seemed really hard to do but possible. Plus her success spoke for itself. I can give that stuff up to lose 15 pounds. It really helped that my husband was in on it too. That meant only one grocery list and someone to be accountable with... SCORE! 

So far (since January) I have lost 15 pounds and the hubs has lost around 20. The best part is we are indulging when we want and still keeping it off.

I won't go into all the details in this post, but I will post some about how we started and what our typical week looks like with food and exercise. Stay tuned!



I am SO happy to hear your success on the diet!!! Although it was all you, I'm so glad I was able to help even the teensiest bit! I eat, sleep and breathe this stuff so to know that one person had such great results makes it all worth while!

Thanks for the sweet comment and for the shout out in your post! :))

I look forward to reading many, many more! Xoxo
