Day 1: What is my why

Monday, November 18, 2019

I have been very down on myself lately. I am not where I want to be and have lost everything I worked so hard at achieving.

I have no one to blame but myself.

So as I try to pick myself back up, I need to remember my why. Why I am doing all of this. Why I want to lose weight and be healthy. Why I am so hard on myself.

What is my why....

When I was thinking about what my why was I started thinking back to when I was at my healthiest weight. I was on cloud 9 all the time. I had high energy. I felt good and looked good. I really want to get back to that feeling.

My why is being able to keep up with my kids and hubby. We are an active family but lately going on hikes I can tell how winded I am. My kids are super fit. In fact... one of my kids is a Marine. I worked out this weekend with my daughter as she put me through her gymnastics workout. I only got through her warm up which had me very down on myself. So having the energy to keep up is what I really want and is number 1 on my why.

My other why is I want to look good. I have had to go up in sizes and things just don't fit right. When I was at my fittest, clothes were looking so good on me. I could shop in stores I never was able to before. I could always find my size since I was smaller. I want that feeling back. I want to see that slimmer woman in the mirror again.

To feel young again..... Again when I was at my healthiest I felt young! I did not feel my age at all probably because I was so energetic. As I get older I realize how important this really is.

How am I going to get to where I want to be?

I need to stop thinking about the past and where I was and just look forward to the future. Yes, I was at a healthy weight and messed it up gaining all the weight back. I can get back there. I need to stop feeling down on myself at being back at square one and just get that wagon rolling. Realizing my why's is my first step!

It was a huge eye opener working out with my daughter yesterday. We made plans to do that workout a few times a week and then on the weekends. I told her that I WILL get better the more we do the workout. I want to keep up with her. I want that energy back!

This is my day 1..... only going to get better from here!

    Thank you so much for writing this Blog, this has been me also, this has given me the renewed motivation I needed. It is so nice to hear that someone else is going through the same emotions that I am. We need to be supportive, and be there for one another, let each other know of our ups and downs. I started an Isagenix page but it is hard to get anyone to reply.

    Well I have decided that I will restart my Isagenix journey tomorrow, let keep each other post on how we do.

    "Don't let yesterday take up too much of today" I don't remember who said the quote but I try to remember it when I start over! You can do this!!

    Happy Day One! There is no shame or worry in starting over and having another Day One -- the important thing is that you are open and ready to pick yourself back up. Well done!
