My goal to lose 30 before I turned 30 didn't completely fail. I lost about half. I could go into all of the excuses I have for not finishing what I started, but I wont. There is no point piddling away seconds of your time reading this in excuses.
What it comes down to is motivation. I was not motivated, I was tempted, and I gave in. Simple as that.
And I'm ok with that, you know why? Because I didn't gain it all back. I actually maintained for the most part. A few lbs higher...but nothing I can't lose in a few weeks. So I wont beat myself down. I wont run to my pantry and kill my sorrows in a bowl of popcorn. No. Not this time.
In stead I will become re-motivated.
I recently had the thought, "what if you were getting married this year? What would you do?"
I would do EVERYTHING in my power to get my body ready for that sassy wedding dress, that's what! I decided to live that way. Yes I may be single with no man in sight (which i'm OK with) but if I lived my life in preparation "out of season" imagine how I will live it "in season!"
I want to live my life in expectation of good things. Of course those good things take work. I can't just look in the mirror and wish that pudgy stomach and those flabby arms away. I have to go to every single kickboxing class. I have to eat healthy and not give into temptation. I have to set my mind on the track and not look from one side to the other.
So here's to re-starting, AGAIN, but that's ok. Every time I re-start, I get closer to my goal...and I WILL reach it!
