How Alexis Got Her Groove Back

My face is healing beautifully, although still bruised a bit. I figure it’s time to start getting my body back to where I like it, too.

With that, I do better when I live under:

(a) the fear of social scorn

(b) my own unrealistic expectations

So I’ll be throwing both into this fire. I’m starting a 90 day challenge, self-invented, to get myself back into good habits again.

*5 workouts/week (I’m following a Pinterest 30-day workout routine right now, but I’ll intersperse with running and yoga)

*Under 1400 calories/day

*Vegetarian diet 3 days/week

*1 serving of “white” carbs/day

*24 oz+ of water each day

*No snacks after 9pm

*Stick to this 6 days a week, with one cheat day

This was pretty similar to what my trainer suggested years ago, so I figure it can’t be all that bad. And it’s not so restrictive that I’ll totally fail or necessarily fall back on old habits.

I’m really not a person who holds much faith in fads, and I hate blogs like this one, but I figure posting this will help me stay true to myself, through public commitment. I’ll spare you the ongoing trivia as I work through it, but suffice it to say I’m going to hit this 90 Day Challenge with fervor… because if you can’t do something for just 3 stupid months, why even bother?

P.S. If you have an eagle eye, you’ll notice I’m generously offering myself of a reward of a trip to wine country if I stick with this. 🙂
