Well this is it, my new and last day 1.
I'm recommitting, restarting and hitting the reset button! (Lol I think that's all the cliched re words that I can fit in here!)
I'm writing this to remind myself why and when and how I began this and to figure out as I go along, how to make it stick. If it ends up helping anyone else out who is just starting out (or restarting) then that's a bonus!
I have been feeling and seeing a shift in other areas of my life, my relationships, my home life, my finances and even my housekeeping. My health is the area that kept nagging at me from the back of my mind.
After trying to convince myself I didn't know where or how to start, I gave up and came back to what I know works.
The difference this time is that I am committing myself to a healthy lifestyle change/shift, not a "diet" I can go on or off when I reach my goal.
The plan is to make small changes that I can stick to, no foods are "off limits" because I can't think of anything I am willing to give up forever! The idea of foods that are "good" or "bad" is going out the window. No more zebra (black and white) thinking! Moderation/balance is the key.
First small changes:
Exercise 6 days out of 7
Drink more water
I'll be back blogging to count my days since my restart and my progress so I can keep motivating myself and hold myself accountable. :o)
I read a spark success story and loved their motto
If its not challenging you,
It's not changing you!
