All Hail to the KALE! DAY 6

Image

Yo, today was a good day!  I decided that it was going to be and so it was.  I had all of my herbs during the day, I walked for 30 minutes and ate clean all day.  I actually had some delicious KALE with a raw dressing that was FANTABULOUS or maybe I was just hungry as hell (either way) it worked out.  I am not going to get all holy righteous and tell you that this is easy for me, because it is not.  I have been on a roller coaster for years with my self destructive eating habits and am working on making healthy eating a habit.  It’s a battle for me just like it is for you, but I am never going to quit trying.  Throughout the day I can’t tell you how many times I am tempted by one of these demonic commercials or the smell of something that JUST CAN’T BE GOOD!  I just close my eyes, meditate, hum a song to myself and sometimes even just pinch myself to remember the goal, damnit.  I am battling years of programming here: from a mother that would force me to clean my plate to the society wrecking monster of commercialism that capitalizes on those that eat poorly.  Anyways, I didn’t want to get too heavy for you, I am trying to get away from that, literally.  But I just wanted to share so that you would know that it is more common than you think; you are not alone…just look around.  Ciao.

Happy New Year!!! 2013: Let’s Get It Right

LBLF 2

Disclaimer: This is not a resolution, I have decided to challenge myself and I’m inviting you to join me in doing the same.

The deadline is set, 30 days to a better me! A few years ago we did an awesome herbal detox and fitness challenge via Facebook and over 500 of you joined me in the name of HEALTH!
We’ll be documenting our progress via Instagram and I’ll post blog entries along the way letting it all hang out, literally. I am tired of not being in the shape that I want to be in, EFF!  what everyone else says.  What do YOU think about those love handles and having to turn at a certain angle to get the “right” picture for Instagram?

My goal is to be in ultimate shape which for me means toning my entire body, healthy above all else, creating and maintaining good body karma. My measurable goals are to lose 15 lbs., 5 % body fat and 4 inches off of my hips and waist.

What are your goals for a better you?  Please feel free to share them here in the comments or on Instagram tag me in your pictures @FunnyAida/#FunnyAida. I look forward to reposting your inspirational journeys.

FOOD:  I will be doing a 21 day herbal detox that will consists of taking herbs and eating raw.

EXERCISE: Pilates, Yoga, Cardio and Zumba.
