No Junk June


So, according to the calendar on my wall it’s June. According to my internal calendar, it’s still March. Can someone get those two to sync up? That’d be great, thanks.

Anyway, the fabulous Kyra and I are doing a sort of challenge to get our rears in gear: No Junk June. We’re trying to cut out all the bad stuff and focus on eating good wholesome foods, so for the month of June, I am going to cut out sugary treats/snacks and processed foods (as much as I can). I’m pretty sure this is going to be a learning curve for me since I’ve been eating processed foods for approximately 40 years. Can this old dog learn new tricks? Stay tuned to find out!

I’m also starting a new set of fitness DVDs that my niece loaned me. It’s called JNL Fusion and from what I can tell they are along the lines of interval/circuit workouts, and they’re approximately 30 minutes in length. I’ve done one of them and although it was challenging, it wasn’t unbearable. I have hope that I can make it through without, ya know, dying. There are 13 (maybe 14) different discs and there’s a schedule to follow that tells you which disc to do on a certain day. It’s a 60 day program, so I hope that at the end of the 60 days I’ll look like a fitness model. Ha! Is there such a thing as plus size fitness models? There should be!! I’m actually just hoping I can stay with it for the full 60 days. Anyone wanna take bets on how long I last  join me in my quest? Anyone? Anyone? Bueller???

I need to dangle a carrot in front of myself to make myself stick with it. Some kind of fun reward I can look forward to – any ideas?

I’ll report back and let you know how things are going with both the DVDs and with the food. It should be interesting to say the least!

  1. That’s some pretty big goals you got going there! For me, when I buckle down on my eating, I give myself some grace for the days I don’t feel so much like working out. If something’s gotta give, its the exercise.

    1. Yeah, they are big goals, but you know what? I’ve been letting myself off the hook for a long time and it’s gotten me nowhere. I don’t feel like any of this is beyond my capabilities – and I’m actually looking forward to it. I like to call this “putting on my big girl panties”. 🙂

  2. My calendar is all over the place! It was August for a few days there, and now I think I might be in May. 🙂 You can do it, I have no doubt!
