beautiful body.

I’m back.
  • back on a vegetarian diet
  • starting 30 day shred today
  • am starting to portion out my food
  • have only a month and a week to go before my big trip. goal? 10lbs
Days: 4,5,6,7,8

Wow how flop of me to go missing but everyday life trumps tumblr. In general I’ve been slacking on the net. All those days were decent with only minor over eating moments. Yesterday I went hiking. We did simple trails but they were fun. :] 

Today is Day 1 of me working out 5 days a week for an hour a week. I will start in 5 then relax a bit followed by some wonderful sleep. 

Hope everyone is reaching their goals.
