Reshaping my Goals!

Tuesday, May 22, 2012

I was given some bad news the other day. You see I was reading an article on here about body shapes, and guess what, the shape I was going for I will never achieve! It turns out that my body type will never change to the flat, six pack that I have been dreaming of and striving for. You see my body shape is what they call an avocado (sexy huh!) because of that my body apparently naturally holds on to body fat. Which means that the giggle on my stomach might go away, I may get a flatter stomach, but I will always have the pooch (even if it is muscle). I will always have the one part of my body that I absolutely can't stand looking in the mirror at. Not very exciting that's for sure!!!

Now I must learn to love the pooch! ugh!!! I must learn that I'm beautiful with it because it will never go away. I also have to reshape the goals that I have had. Not only that but I have to learn to want my new goals. Sounds like it could be easy except that I've always dreamed of having the perfect dancers body. I can't achieve that though, and I need to learn to be ok with that.

I actually went through a moment after I found this out that I contemplated giving up on eating right and exercise. Then reason popped it's head back up and I realized that though I may not have the body that I have always dreamed of, I feel good about myself now. I sleep better, I have more energy, and I've been able to cut out all the sweets I was eating.

So hears to my new Goals emoticon. May I achieve them once I figure out what they are!
