Ok so the title is a little bit that might scare you off, but take the time to read it and honestly it's not that bad (well I hope it won't be.....geesh that was so presumptuous of me).....
Did you ever have a dream that made you wake up and just go YES I knew I could do that!? I seem to be having quite a few of those recently. I had this dream last night that if I started to take my vitamins again (yes I sadly fell off that wagon) and started to take a more active roll in my own well being (I do 2-3 workouts most days), that I would finally start seeing some pounds come off. I'm about to do something that I have probably only ever done 1 other time in my life and that is that I am going to show you a picture of me in a swimsuit (well top half only because that's how the hubby took it).
Do I like this picture? looking at it now and again with fresh morning eyes.......no I see so much about me that I want to just change. I love my smile and most of my face so that I wouldn't change but.. looking at this picture right now I see things that probably most others don't. Did you ever notice we are our own worst critics? I don't mean to be highly critical of myself but sometimes I just can't help it.
I know that there are some areas in my life and not just my physical body that I would like to change. I look at myself sometimes and think if I had this.... my life would be better....if I had that my life would be better....I know that money can't buy happiness or a miracle weight loss cure. I know that I need to not be stressed out or allow someone else to control my happiness. I know that I shouldn't let my pant size or the size of a shirt control my happiness.
So here's my plan of attack (once I finish this up) I need to get back into the habit of snacking again (healthy snacking that is) and planning meals instead of just going to the fridge and grabbing the first thing I see to eat. I need to go outside every day and do "the circuit" around the yard with my dumbbells, I also need to find at least one day a week to go for a bike ride (which means I need to convince Chris to get that bike rack so that I don't have to try to rearrange the car each time I go out). I need to find someone who is reliable and go for walks with them (you'd think that would be easy but sadly it's not). I need to continue with my Combat workouts as well as Brazilian Butt Lift ones and lastly I need to have a more positive body image about myself!
So here's to a brand new me........a little stronger........a little smarter......and a lot more fun
