The countdown begins!

Let me start by saying HAPPPPPY NEW YEAR EVERYONE!!!!! This is my first post of the year and yes I am going to tell you about a different weight loss approach I have taken that is finally doing me justice!

I am on the clock to get back in shape I have some photo shoots coming up that I'm really excited about!!! So...

As most of us know being a mom is tough we work so hard to take care of our little ones that we kind of put ourselves last. Well I was on a low fat diet that DID now work due to me moving and school and work. So I started researching other options of what I could possibly do. I needed something that was going to give me results to motivate me! Well while shopping the isles of Walmart one night I saw these Atkins starter kits. I've heard of the Atkins diet but never really wanted to invest my time to learn about it. I decided why not let me read the book and see what it's about! I read the book in one day. The next day I went to buy the foods and started my Atkins journey December 30, 2013. I must say so far I have lost 4 pounds so about a pound a day which is NOT bad at all. Even though the very first day I had the worst headache and felt somewhat ill it was worth it! I now have energy I haven't had since before I had my daughter! I've been tempted to work out but am holding out until I'm done with the induction phase. I am planning to do the induction phase for a month since I want to lose about 50 pounds! Honestly if anyone is considering Atkins I say go for it! I'm not left hungry and I don't get cravings. Who wouldn't want to eat bacon and eggs for breakfast?? Lol if any one is reading this and has tried the Atkins diet please share your success story with me!  This is the book I read and keep with me for reference.

I woke up early today, excited over all I get to do before the clock strikes midnight.

I have responsibilities to fulfill.

I am important.

My job is to choose what kind of day I am going to have.

Today I can complain because the weather is rainy or I can be thankful that the grass is getting watered for free.

Today I can feel sad that I don't have more
money or I can be glad that my finances encourage me to plan my purchases wisely and guide me away from waste.

Today I can grumble about my health or I can rejoice that I am alive.

Today I can lament over all that my parents didn't give me when I was growing up or I can feel grateful that they allowed me to be born.

Today I can cry because roses have thorns or I can celebrate that thorns have roses.

Today I can mourn my lack of friends or I can excitedly embark upon a quest to discover new relationships.

Today I can whine because I have to go to work or I can shout for joy because I have a job to do.

Today I can murmur dejectedly because I have to do housework or I can feel honored because the Lord has provided shelter for my mind, body, and soul.

Today stretches ahead of me, waiting to be shaped.

And Here I am, the sculptor who gets to do the shaping.

What today will be like is up to me.

I get to chose what kind of day I will have.

Make it a great one!
