Getting over Illnessa and Ready for Summer

I'm baaaaaccccckkkkk.

I have been mentioning that I was sick. Well, guess what? I was REALLY sick. I had no clue...I wound up in the hospital for an afternoon with really bad bronchitis, walking pneumonia and a really bad sinus infection. It was terrible. I missed a few weeks of work....took my first set of antibiotics in almost 9 years and a load of steroids. The steroids are making me sick and really bloated... but they worked!

I am finally feeling better. After I am done with the steroids, I hope to really be moving towards my Summer fit body! I have a focus like no other and I want to chronicle my entire journey right here!

So my first steps are:
  1. Eat 100% whole foods
  2. Drink juice first thing in the morning
  3. Drink a green smoothie per day as breakfast
  4. Stop eating by 6 or 7 pm
  5. Drink 3L of water per day
  6. Walk after dinner
My lungs are weird so working out for long amounts of time are a no-go right now. But, I have designed some 10 minute morning bursts.

My whole foods diet will look like this:
  • Morning when I first wake up: water (16-32 oz)
  • Green smoothie (loaded with fruit, greens, almond milk, chia seeds) as my first real meal of the day
  • Oats loaded with raisins, almond milk, flaxseeds, apples, walnuts
  • Lots of loaded salads (lettuce, tomato, cucumber, beans or legumes, balsamic vinaigrette and more
  • Beans/soups/ etc. I pulled out my favorite cookbook and one I got from the library recently. 
I will try to document in pics day by day (someone requested this) my diet and the quick exercises. I'm excited to finally be getting better, steroids or not. And I am super motivated to get in amazing shape!!! I have my work cut out for me, but I can do it.

Anyone else ready to get amazing lean shape for Summer? 7 weeks until Summer! Let's go!!!!!!!!
