My 2011 Goal - Muscles are so Sexy! I want to be Sexy!

I have decided that this is the year I really start to get serious with how I look and feel!

It's not that I "hate" the way I look now. I think I look good! I think I've come very far and if this was as far as I could possibly go, then I would accept that. I would be content with myself and maintain what I have accomplished. BUT I know without a doubt, this isn't as far as I can go, this isn't the BEST I can be! I can do better! I can push myself harder! I know I have the drive and determination to improve my body even more! I want to be able to post a picture of myself in a itty bitty bikini and think "dam I'm hot"! I want to have tight 6 pack abs (never in my life did I think that was possible, not this almost 40 year old Mom of 3, Grandma to 1!  BUT I DO now)! I want to have more energy than I ever have and I want muscles! YES I love muscles! Muscles are so Sexy! I want to be Sexy!

And so I'm going to step it up a notch! NO! Several notches! I'm going to kick my own butt like I've never kicked it before! I'm going to go full blown with clean eating. No more 50/50!

I can do this!

Today I weighted in at 173 lbs! I've gained some weigh over the last year, however me today at 173lbs wearing a size 10 is totally different than me 2 years ago at 173lbs wearing a size 14-16! What a difference muscle makes! BUT I still have a lot of fat on top of that muscle! I'm going to burn that fat away to reveal those sexy muscles! I don't have a "goal weight" in mind, but I need to lose a good 30+ lbs and I need to drop my bodyfat %!

You may be thinking "how is she going to do that:"? Like I said I'm going to eat 100% clean! For those of you that aren't familiar with clean eating, the basics are as follows...

Clean Eating Basics
•Eat small meals every two to three hours (5 to 6 small meals per day)
•Combine lean protein and complex carbs at every meal
•Avoid all over-processed and refined foods (especially white flour, white rice, and sugar)
•Avoid saturated and trans fat, instead consume healthy fats
•Avoid soda and other sugary juices and drinks
•Avoid high-calorie, zero nutrient foods (junk food)
•Eat proper portion sizes
•Drink at least a gallon of water every day

So NO pre-packaged meals (sorry Smart Ones and Lean Cuisine), NO white pasta or potatoes, NO low-calorie cookies or cakes, NO sugary juices! Just clean whole foods like chicken, lean beef, brown rice, sweet potatoes, green beans, broccoli, apples, oranges and water! LOTS of water! :)

I'm going to continue my training with my husband. Thank goodness I have him! He has taught me so much and pushes me to do my best! It helps that he was a personal trainer (a very good one if I might add) and knows what he's doing. It feels good to have a spouse who cares about how he looks as much if not more than I do! Makes things so much easier that we are both on the same track.
 
My goal is to lose 2-3 lbs a week. I'm going to weigh myself every Saturday morning and will share the results here on my blog. I also plan on sharing pictures of my progress.
 
That is my Goal for 2011! Call it a New Year's Resolution (first one I've ever made)! I AM going to do this! I know I can! I'm willing to give 100% to MYSELF!
 
You CAN Too! Join me in becoming the "BEST" you can be! What are your 2011 Goals?

    That sounds great! I would love it if you would maybe post some meal plans. I have read a little on clean eating and would like to learn more.

    Hi Shauna,

    Thanks for stopping by. I'm going to be eating pretty basic (grilled chicken, sweet tater, egg whites, etc.) so not a lot of recipes to share but I would be more than willing to share what I eat each day. There are a lot of clean eating websites out there as well. One of my favorite is: http://www.cleaneatingmag.com

    I'm following more of a "cut" diet so I won't be trying out too many recipes. This is what I am following: http://www.bodybuilding.com/fun/transformation-plan-fl-20-39-female-nutrition-plan.html

    of course switching out my proteins, carbs, and veggies for variety :)

    Today for example I ate the following:

    Meal 1:
    6 egg whites & 1 whole egg scrambled and topped with fat free salsa
    1/3 cup oatmeal w/cinnamon and a lil bit of splenda (gotta wean myself off this)

    Meal 2 (after workout):
    Protein shake made with 1/2 soy milk and 1/2 water and 1/2 frozen banana

    Meal 3:
    Slice whole wheat bread toasted then 1 tbsp of peanut butter spread on it.
    10 strawberries

    Meal 4:
    4 oz. extra lean ground beef inside a whole wheat tortilla with 1/4 avocado, fresh spinach and salsa.

    Meal 5:
    4 oz. grilled chicken
    5 oz. sweet potatoe fries
    1 cup broccoli/carrots/snow pea blend

    Meal 6:
    4 oz. extra lean ground beef on top of a huge bed of fresh spinach, topped with salsa.

    There you have it :) pretty simple but all clean whole foods! :)

    You should check out Clean Eating Magazine. It is chalk full of delicious, healthy, clean recipes that are easy to prepare and budget-friendly. I can't say enough good things about that magazine! :)

    Hi Raegun,

    I have never got the magazine but I love the website! Lots of great recipes! :)

    Love this post! I too am on a quest to be lean and sexy! Clean eating and good old fashioned hard work at the gym are the secret! I actually am just finishing up a 49 Day Transformation Challenge based on these principles and seeing some great progress! And more importantly having a great time doing it! Clean eating magazine and Oxygen Magazine are good resources and if you are interested in even more nitty gritty check out Tom Venuto's stuff. Love him! Good luck on your journey to lean and sexy!

    Shelly, it's crazy how much we are alike! As I was reading this post, it's me in a nutshell.

    I'm about 170 lbs, a mom to 3 and a gramma of 1 (it's part of my bio on the Eat Clean site, lol), and I'm eating clean 99.9%. I want to lose about the same and I'm looking to get a lean physique in the process. I too want those sexy muscles and tiny waist.

    I look forward to following your blog, I'll be stopping back for updates regularly.

    Thanks for the inspiration that you give so many...and good luck on your journey to sexiness!!

    xoxo
    Rox
