I am refusing to call this whole process a diet. I don't want to just change my habits for a while. I want my habits to become a healthier lifestyle. So, we're going to call it a lifestyle change.Mug Brownies will no longer be an acceptable daily choice. Eating chips and dip out of the bag on the couch are no longer an option.

I'm making a change. I've spent too long being overweight and unhappy with that. Remember how I said this is going to be my year? Well, it is. And I want you guys to keep me accountable. I know there will be days that are not great. But I need to keep one bad day from turning into a month of bad days.

I've also been thinking about clean eating lately. I'm not sure I can 100% jump on board. There's just some things I'm not sure I'm committed to giving up. So I'm still rolling the idea around.

If you want, you can follow along in the fun on Instagram. I'm going to try my hand at this whole Instagram thing, in the past, I've been a complete failure. But, maybe this will be one more way to keep me accountable.
