Rascal's sexzzzzy adventure

My name is Rachel, I am 30 years old, from South Africa and this is my new adventure of find a new me... well the REALme :) This is the year of sexzzzy ... Sexzzzy EVERYTHING and its all coming my way :)

I have too long held onto the things that keep us fat and out of shape - the desire to "punish" myself by keeping me fat, or worse... making me fatter!
I'm OVER that. Im letting go of all that junk and hurt and the untruths i have taught myself to believe about myself... ...

I'm OVER that. Im letting go of all that junk and hurt and the untruths i have taught myself to believe about myself... well I am in the process of doing that :)

I started my journey alot heavier than my ticker will tell you but I recently cleared all my "history out" and created a brand new starting point. The blog "Hit the reset baby" makes sense of this ramble :)

- drink more water - aiming for 8 glasses daily
- surround myself with inspiration :)

Thats the finish line - being able to say I am proud of me for those reasons :)

Good to see your head is still in it. I know its tough when you get off your schedule to get back on it. Sounds cool to travel like you do.

Good morning! emoticon I hope your day is wonderful! emoticon You had asked me how I was able to stay on track to reach my goals? At first, I had to have a goal in mind that would really motivate me, something I truly wanted. Then it hit me! I was getting married, and my dress didn't fit me the way I wanted, so I decided that my first goal was to look good in the wedding dress. My wedding was 5 months away and I had 65 lbs to loose. The first time I had my dress fitted was amazing, I couldn't believe I had had lost 40 lbs and I was feeling good. After I was married, then I realized I still needed to come up with another goal to keep me motivated. I would come up with small ideas, like fitting into that dress at Kohl's that I want, or just staying fit so I could go out and run and it didn't put so much strain on my legs. I think it's a matter of setting small goals every week and ones that you know are attainable. Don't start out so big in the beginning and then work your way to success! Don't get me wrong, it is hard to maintain once you reach your initial goal. I think it's harder to keep weight off, then it is to lose it. Also, always believe in yourself and what your capable of! I have always had strong Faith, so I leaned on the strength of the Lord a lot! I have good days and bad days, but I know in the end, I don't ever want go back to how things were. As far as emotional eating, once you realize what triggers it, you can get a journal and put it by your bed side. Once you feel that emotion coming on, instead of reaching for a bag of chips, just start writing down all your thoughts. It doesn't matter what they are, they are important to you.
Last, but not least, never give up on yourself! Never get down on yourself if you have a bad day. You are worth the journey! I wish you the best and I will always be here to help motivate you! emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon
