⚠️ WARNING LONG POST AHEAD ⚠️ I’m trying to learn to crave the healthy lifestyle like I do junk food. I’m not perfect and I do not claim to be. I am constantly experiencing setbacks and the “I’m starting again next week” mentality. Some days I eat well, and others all I want is to indulge in McDonald’s. There are times where I don’t miss a day during the week at the gym and then I go a month without even checking in there.
I can tell you that I’ve looked at pictures and have felt disgusted in how looked. I’ve had the “how did I let myself go” conversation with myself. I’ve been discouraged when my favorite jeans have become a little tighter than the last time I put them on. I get sad when I have a piece of clothing in my closet with the tag still on it because one day I hope it fits.
I’ve made countless resolutions and deals with myself to try and get back on track, but the truth is I need to do for me. I have to really want it otherwise, I’ll just make excuses. The summer is coming and I have my 30th birthday in August which is great, but I want to build a lifestyle that I can maintain. Im not saying short term goals aren’t a good idea, I think they’re great. I just don’t want to work hard for a few months and then go back to where I am now.
To help me start and stay on track I bought myself a fitness journal which comes with small tips to tweak your everyday routine. It has me log my exercise and food for the day, but more importantly what I’m grateful for that day, goals to live healthy, what inspires me and one thing I appreciate about my strong body. It’s not just about being physically healthy for me, but to live emotionally and mentally healthy too.
Let’s see where this goes 🤞🏼 ·
