Weight Loss Wednesday – A Salad A Day

Weight loss is a personal journey. A path you want to travel on quietly because sharing struggles is scary. On the flip side, you want to revel in the successes with anyone who will listen.

I began these “Weight Loss Wednesday” posts and quickly attracted a rather large following. Thank you. But because of that, I lost track of my end goal. I found myself doing things for blog posts and not for myself. I needed to start being selfish therefore, I kept this part of my life private.

I can’t promise that I’ll post every Wednesday. I can promise that I’ll share when I feel the time is right and today is one of those days. With that said, I’m 3 days into my February goal.

Anyone can do anything for a month. Especially a month that only has 29 days. (Damn you, Leap Year.) It’s simple. Eat a salad a day. My local grocery store has pre-made salads that are pretty damn good. I’ve never been the girl who craves a salad, (I mean, who are these people that do?!) but whenever I force myself to chow down on them, I really find it enjoyable! Who knows how long this will last but I’ve got high hopes. I’m 3-for-3. Wahoo!

Now here’s the hard part. I’m also trying REALLY hard to make this a no-fried-food-February. That’s my downfall. I love me some fresh French fries. Hell, I’ll eat cold stale fries. I love them that much. What I don’t love is the spare tire eating those golden goodies leaves behind.

Seeing the end goal can easily become overwhelming. I’m focusing on two mini goals. Eating a salad daily and staying away from my vices. Will I make it 29 days? I don’t know. But, so far, I’ve made it three days longer than I did last month. I’ll chalk that up as a win.

What are your mini goals? Goals that you’ll be able to accomplish in the next 30 days?
