Just-Torture-Yourself January

Just a girl, standing in front of an ice cream, asking it to love her πŸ˜˜πŸ˜˜β€οΈβ€οΈπŸ˜πŸ˜πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

This is JT’s “endearing” term for the little detox that I’ve been doing since January 7th and will continue through the end of the month.

Here are the basics:

  1. No alcohol
  2. Mostly healthy eating/count calories when possible (small treats when I get a severe craving -> mini drumstick ✌🏼)
  3. Workout 3-5 times per week
  4. At least 5k steps a day
  5. Train to be able to run a 5k
  6. Potentially find a 5k race to run

I was sick a lot in November/December so I slacked off on healthy eating and exercising (and who doesn’t indulge over the holidays?!). Because of all that I was/am carrying some extra weight that was not unhealthy but wasn’t necessarily making me happy. Hence this little jumpstart.

I know that not all of these things aren’t sustainable long term; life gets in the way and sometimes working out isn’t the most important thing in the world. Just like how these extra ten pounds and the way my body looks isn’t the most important thing in the world. Having the opportunity to worry about my waist line and not where I’ll get my next meal is a privilege and ultimately how much I weigh doesn’t change anything.

I will now get off my self love soap box but it is something that we should all internalize!

Happy January, lovelies!
