Day 1 of the Gold's 12 week Challenge

I am choosing to give the challenge sponsored by Gold's Gym another shot this year.  I have to admit that last year the challenge was a disaster for me.  There were a number of reasons.  None of them all that great or worth rehashing.  Heck, on the weight loss front last year was an epic fail.  According to my tracker, on this date one year ago, I was 25 lbs lighter.  Yikes.

You can do anything for 12 weeks.  I've trained for half-marathons.  So obviously, I can do it.  I just need to plan better and focus much more on what I should put into my body rather than what I WANT to put in my body.  I wish I loved food less.  It would help my eating addiction so much more.  I am also picky.  There are so many foods I won't eat and I feel like my list is already so limited that being forced to give up more sends me spiraling backwards.  Clearly, I need to get over that.  I'm still not touching mushrooms or most green things.  Yuck.  However, I am willing to limit the amounts of the not so healthy foods.  Will I be perfect?  Nope.  But all I can do is my best.  

Here begins the next 12 weeks and my mission towards being smaller by the time I set foot in Prague!
