This is Patty, one of Dustin’s bloggers here!

Puerta Vallarta – 31 days!  My husband and I have never been on a ‘real vacation’ and we’ve never left our two sons behind before, not even one night!  We are heading to Mexico with 9 other couples in 31 days.  Anxious, nervous, excited, etc.  I’ve been working out very hard for months now, and I see results.  My jeans fit better and I feel strong.  STRONG IS THE NEW SKINNY!  But – I still feel ‘skinny fat’.  I still have areas that need trimming and I still have weight that I want to come off.  Not a lot, 10-15 pounds would be great.  I did notice that when I was journaling my food intake is when I saw the best results, just like Kim talks about in her last blogMy biggest thing I noticed when I journaled was not calorie intake, that was about where I thought it was, but it was my protein intake.  I never got enough protein, not even close!  Well, I just ordered a new jug of protein powder, the Prograde that Dustin talks about is my favorite, it’s the only one that doesn’t give me an upset stomach after drinking, and also the protein meal replacement powder for those in between meals that I dont want to miss when I need more protein, and I am ready to hit the next 31 days HARD.  Not just exercising – that I’ve got down, I’ve got the habit going, have for some time now, but the next step, the step that really means the most and the step that needs to be added in order to see real results is nutrition, Clean Eating, journaling, eating 6 meals, watching my sugar intake, etc.  I ordered 5 new swimsuits for the trip, including 2 bikini’s!  As soon as they come in the mail I will take a before picture and an after picture.  Yikes! Did I just say that out loud? I will be blogging at the end of each week of the next 31 days about my journey.  Who wants to join me?
