I am starting so many new things this week and it's kind of scary. Change is always something that is hard. I need to make changes in my life to be healthier though and today I am really truly starting this journey. I am finally in the right mindset and I have a pretty sweet baby girl who is my main motivation. It's not so much about the numbers I loose but more about the choices I will be making daily to get healthy again. Along the way I am sure pounds will fall off but I am finally to the point where that isn't my true end goal. So the changes I am making are obviously toward a healthier lifestyle.
First thing I am doing is the whole 30 program. It's not a diet, although you can loose weight on it and probably will. It's a way of creating a healthy mindset and habit for you to have a good relationship with food once again. This is something I desperately need.

The whole 30 program has a list of certain foods you can eat, basically protein, vegetables and fruit. No pasta, dairy, fat, or sugar. You can read all about it here. I am starting on Wednesday of this week and I am terrified. Mostly because I have never done such a strict "diet" before. Strict in the way I can't eat dairy and other foods but not strict because I can eat as much as I want of the approved foods.
Second thing I am doing is exercising. I have been so bad at it for basically my whole life and that needs to change. I am starting today. I signed up last week for Vasa gym here in Utah as well as their Vasa kid program so I don't have to find a babysitter for Claire. Today I am just going and I am starting this new thing. I don't like going to the gym, but the new one in Saratoga Springs is really nice. I have been researching gym routines I can start trying and have found a few on Pinterest that I am going to give a go.
Change is hard, but this change is worth it and so necessary.
