Hi loves! You may remember reading a post I wrote back in January about embarking on a journey to get healthy, get fit, and lose weight so I can make a permanent change to my lifestyle. It was an emotional post to write, but I’m proud of myself for getting the words out there and even prouder of myself for taking the initiative to make the change.
It’s been about three and a half months since that post went up, and I’ve managed to (mostly) stay on track with my goal. I’ve had days when all I wanted was to eat some fries and sit on the couch, but I managed to get up, just like I’ve had days when I didn’t manage to get up. The important thing is that I understand that this is a process, and it won’t change my life overnight.
I’m not going to lie, the past two weeks have been hard. I’ve managed to stray from my goals, both in diet and exercise, and work has been rough and has been getting me down. Thankfully, my job keeps me very physically active even if I don’t go to the gym or go to zumba, but I need to keep on track and keep working hard and not let bad days get in my way.
I also need to know that some days, when I don’t feel like doing anything and can hardly manage to muster the motivation to go to the gym, it’s okay to have a rest day, but I can’t forget that if I keep saying that I’ll go to the gym tomorrow, tomorrow will never come.
Overall, I’ve done really well and I’m proud of myself for it. I’ve lost weight, I feel better, I don’t get tired as quickly, and cutting sugar out of my diet completely has made a huge difference in my life. 2016 will be the year for me to keep changing, keep learning, and keep getting healthy, and I can’t wait.
Thanks for reading! Do you have any tips on ways to stay motivated and active?
