30 and downsizing

So I tuned 30 January 14th. Is it possible for something to feel surreal and all too real all at the same time? Everyone always says I look younger than my age, which is a little frustrating when I get carded for trying to buy allergy medicine, but in general has become something pretty good in my book these days. However, here I am heading for the summer of my 30th year, and in the worst shape physically than I've been in over 7 years. This is not the pattern I was hoping for going into my ...
So I tuned 30 January 14th. Is it possible for something to feel surreal and all too real all at the same time? Everyone always says I look younger than my age, which is a little frustrating when I get carded for trying to buy allergy medicine, but in general has become something pretty good in my book these days. However, here I am heading for the summer of my 30th year, and in the worst shape physically than I've been in over 7 years. This is not the pattern I was hoping for going into my 30's. Now more than ever I'm realizing how important it is to become healthy on the inside and feel good about myself on the outside.

CAN you teach a 30 year old girl new tricks? :)

30 years of bad habits, I have discovered, are hard to break! I have been very successful in the past but I have never been the best at living a balanced life. I have a habit of counting calories but not eating balanced. Eating processed starches instead of fruits and vegetables. A wealth of calorie knowledge does not a healthy eater make. Without learning to eat balanced I've learned it's going to be an uphill battle of trying to balance bad eating with an amount of exercising that I can't maintain. Enter the weight watchers PointsPlus program, which encourages unlimited fruits and veggies with a balance amount of carbs, protein and dairy. Unlike the regular points program, apparently carbs cost more than before, fruits and veggies are free, encouraging you to reach for fresh snacks. It's week 2 and I've lost 5 pounds! 

I have a long way to go and a lot of habits to change, but I'm trying something new. Slow and steady and HEALTHY, wins the race.

A FREEING IDEA

What would it feel like to let go of every negative thought about your body? Try it: Worship your legs for taking you on adventures, adore your abs for allowing you to lean into life, love your smile for revealing the joy in your heart. Live as if your body were perfect, not only because you'll be more open to the world, but because in every way that truly matters, it is.
