Back on the Saddle
Tuesday, April 25, 2017
Towards the end of last year I was doing so good, I had lost 30lbs and was on my way to a healthier me but then life happened and I lost focus. Story of my life, excuse of my life! There are dozens of reasons I could give, changing job tasks, buying a house, hectic life and on and on. Truth is that is just life and I know that but I can't seem to make it right. But instead of focusing on what I did wrong, I'm going to reflect on what I did right and do my best to stick to it!
What I know works for me:
Making small weekly goals
Increasing those weekly goals little by little
Logging my food
Self Accountability - blogging like I'm doing now!
While I haven't gained much weight during my absence on SP my body is very flabby! I'm looking forward to feeling a vigor for life again and to put some time and energy into myself. I guess this is a day by day process that will take my whole life and I'm ok with that, I'm not ok when I give up on myself. I lose myself when I'm not taking care of myself. I become someone I don't want to be. I'm doing this for me, I don't have some goal to lose x amount of lbs by a certain time, I don't want to be sexy...I just want to be me. I'm not saying there is anything wrong with any of those things but for me this time it's about my health and the way I feel EVERYDAY.
I know I can do this! I'm strong enough, smart enough, and good enough. Here it goes....again!
