What to do with all the

It kills me to throw out food, especially when I know it's not bad.  But there has to be a line drawn in the sand.  If it doesn't go I will end up eating it when I stress or don't plan correctly so out it goes.

The contest doesn't officially start until January 15th, however we get the green light after we post our photos on or after January 1.  I think I am going to take advantage of this extra time. 

This weekend is the last junk filled, eating out I will be doing for at least the next 12 14 (see above) weeks.  My only exception to this rule is to visit my favorite restaurant to get my grilled salmon Caesar salad minus the Caesar.  So basically it's salmon over romaine lettuce.  I do ask for a few lemon wedges to squeeze over the top but that's it.  Salmon is good for you, nice Omega 3 fatty acids, and the lettuce....well besides almost's roughage. 

Sunday will be meal prep and I plan to make it pretty easy, chicken, rice, and veg.  Or so…

The Day it ALL began......

I did it.  I signed up.  It's the day it ALL begins.  January 1 is the new beginning of the year and the new beginning of me. 

Follow me along this 12 week journey.  There will be high times, low times, good times and bad times.....and maybe a few sentence enhancers along the way (queue spongebob squarepants).

It will be a time of learning, about myself, my body and to what extent I can push it and make it do.
