In an effort to reshape my body and lose weight, I have dramatically changed my eating habits. I haven't had "sugar" for over two weeks, meaning that I have refused all sweets (including chocolate!) and haven't had anything made with flour (freshly baked bread is a weakness for me). I have been eating proteins, nuts, veggies, and fruits during the day, and I'll allow carbs at dinner with moderation. Significantly reducing carbs is a huge change in my diet, and I'm hoping I see huge results in return.
Somewhat stubbornly, I have begun exercising too. This has always been an area of struggle for me. I absolutely hate to run. Everyone says "Start running...you'll love it!". I've been hearing that my whole life, and yet, I've always hated running.
However, I grew up having two wheels attached to my body. I've always enjoyed biking. So, The Husband got me a bike. Call it a belated birthday gift, or motivational support for my weight loss goals. Whatever you call it, I've got myself a brand new shiny bike. He even bought me biking gloves.
