Two Meatballs: Confessions of a Cheating Meatball!!!

You guysssssss….it’s Sara!  I have really been flirting with the boundaries of my paleo and exercise lifestyle lately!!!!  I don’t know if it is because I feel sooooooooooo amazing that it’s making me feel cocky and I’m forgetting that it took being super diligent,  focused and disciplined to get me here or if I’m just bored!!!  But between never being home anymore #heyohhhhhh #newrelationship and just not cooking as much and traveling a lot, room service and eating out all the time and skipping some gym visits…I feel like I REALLLLLLLY need to reign it in. #outofcontrol  I feel sooooo much better talking about it bc then it doesn’t feel like  it’s a dirty little secret!  Everyone hits bumps in the road but this bump has been like a good month.  Swaying from my routine is always a bad trigger for me but I’m excited about everything that is happening right now so I just need to remap this plan and not just say fuck it. Luckily I haven’t gained any weight but I certainly haven’t lost any either.  I have to refocus…stop eating gd steak frites every other day…stop eating out so much and recommit to my gym schedule and I don’t know…maybe get some sleep!?!  I feel soooo committed to my end goal!  This is hard work and it’s not going to get easier annnnnnd it’s a lifestyle change!!!!!  Gosh this feels really good to get it out!!!!  Jenny is oooooh sooooo great about letting me vent but we made a commitment to be super honest with you guys so I needed to get this off my chest! Ok so Jenny is headed over right now to do a cooking segment which means we will eat healthy this week!  I already have my gym bag packed for the morning since I skipped it ALLLLL  weekend long!  No more eating out while I’m at work!  I went to Trader Joe’s today and stocked up for the week!  I am feeling super empowered and refocused.  I am capable of starting new things without derailing myself.  Tonight I’m going to get an epic night of sleep and stick to my budget this week.  My breakfast and lunch are laid out for tomorrow!

I have a plan so I’m going to plan to succeed not fail.  The next weigh in is around the corner and I am going to keep on marching towards my ultimate goal of being healthy!  This is a total rant…thank you for letting me get it out and thanks so much for going through all the ups and downs of this with us!!!!  We love you!!!!!  I’m going to do a montage to keep myself motivated!!! This is my new facebook profile pic and I feel amazing!!!  Look at those little arms…they will not stay little or get smaller if I keep straying from this path!  Next to it is a profile pic from the year before! This segment is called…what a difference a year (or several months) makes!

When we first started talking about who we saw the other as in our fittest selves.. I saw her as Mila Kunis and she saw me as Julianne Hough! So I found these images in my phone from when we first started this little adventure!

  1. You’re so amazing to see your that you’ve been less active in your program. I’m so excited for your progress. Oh and where the heck do you shop? I live ALL OF YOUR clothes!!! EVERY LAST THING YOU WEAR is amazing

  2. Ugggg! I don’t know why but I sort of want to cry!!! Or I am actually crying! I’m so proud of you!! I have to say I was a little worried….New relationship, feeling so good about yourself, which are all the most amazing things and I am over the moon happy for you but I didn’t want it to derail you from this amazing journey you are on!! Let’s go to the gym on Sunday!!!! I love you like the most in the whole wide world did!!!!!

    PS that cat top is amazing! Why don’t you own it??

    1. You make me want to cry on the reg with your outpouring of love!!! I’m reeling it back in…I’m not driving back from the grand canyon I promise!!!! Just a small misstep! Gym sounds great…but how about Saturday?!

  3. Putting in the extra effort to set yourself up for success is key! When I don’t… it’s just too easy to get off track. I don’t enjoy cooking or grocery shopping, I’m happier going through the drive-thru. HOWEVER. I’m not happy with the results of those choices. Ya know? I’m impressed with your meal planning and getting back on the gym routine. You’re working it! And you’re inspiring others. Love!
