So, yesterday came and went. I turned 35.
Back in November, I hopped back on the train and have been slowly chugging along. I've made a few pit stops along the way but I'd like to think that I've moved forward more than I've moved backwards.
I see changes in my body (see pic below), but I'm not necessarily sure they are great changes. I think they are good changes but nothing terribly drastic. (I'm not fishing for compliments by ANY means, but. . . I mean, there's a LITTLE change for the better there right??)
What I do think has changed is my attitude. At the time, I really wasn't paying attention or really caring what I was eating. I KNOW that's changed. I know and acknowledge when I'm making poor choices. Caring, knowing and acknowledging is a good chunk of the battle after all.
My outlook on exercise has also changed. I was very much in the camp of "all or nothing" when it came to it. Why bother to get a 10 minute walk in if I can't fit in a 4 mile run? That's changed. I recently have been having a lot of shoulder pain (my husband thinks it's my rotator cuff??) so I've REALLY scaled back on ST. Even running has been aggravating it. So, I've been doing a lot of long walks. Not runs, not crazy ST. Just walking. And you know what's weird? I've actually been seeing movement on the scale!!!
So, I won't be wearing a bikini anytime soon, I'm still a bit self conscious of rolls and currently, I cannot run like I'm 25. BUT, I do look cute in a henley and jeans which WAS one of my goals! And most importantly, I have reset my brain. Back to a brain that cares about taking care of the body that's hosting it.
