Last month, I mentioned I wanted to get back on track. We all know baby steps are where it's at, and trying to do too much at once normally ends in failure. Well. It certainly does for me. So last month I chose one goal - eating. Focus on my eating habits and get back on track with eating only. That doesn't mean that I didn't exercise, because I did. But it was not my focus.
I did pretty well. I was going to try and justify it and say I succeeded, but really, I'd say I half-passed. 50% pass is better than 100% fail though, right? I almost did it, and almost counts.
Before, I was eating junk and fast food two or three times a week, visiting the vending machine once
I sucked at controlling my portion sizes and I sucked at getting more fruits and veg. I need to work on both of those, but as for the junk and eating out for lunch, I would say it was definitely almost a success. I meant to take more photos, but..

For this month, I want to work on the things I failed at last month: portion sizes and fruit & veg.
I also really need to exercise consistently. I always fall off the wagon during winter because I'm cold and miserable. It hasn't snowed yet but it will, and then I will just want to curl up in some sweats and tell myself no-one can see those extra 10lbs. But I don't want to do that again, I want to work out through the winter and stay on top of it. Plus, our cruise is offically booked and the swimsuit I bought is a liiiiiittle small.
1. Work on them portions, girl. Eat like pre-America-Kristen.
2. Eat yo' fruits and veggies. 2 fruits and 2 veggies a day.
3. Work out 3-4 times a week. Don't care what, just do it.
You can do it!

Do you have any magic tricks to stay motivated with working out over winter?
