And it begins

Another challenge as a beautiful butterfly. I've been working hard to remove the obstacles that have kept me from experiencing real success in the last two challenges, but I'm not complaining. Every challenge I learn more about me and grow more into the person I want to become. This weight did not come on over night. It's not going to leave overnight. I'm going to have to go through the transformation. Like the caterpillar does when he/she becomes a butterfly.
This has been my wall paper because every day I want to remind myself that I just need to keep moving forward. I will take steps backwards unfortunately, but it doesn't have to be the end of me or my journey. I can just take another step forward.
I've been so exhausted because of work and I'm trying to get a handle on that, but every day I find the energy to exercise after work is success in my book. It's better than doing nothing. I remember when I used to go to work, come home, and lay in bed or on the couch until I went to bed. I'm not doing that. Helps that I have my daughter, but I know plenty of people who don't let that stop them from disengaging like that so some credit is deserved here.
Today is going to be my rest day because of yesterday/last night, but tomorrow I'm going to hit it. I'm hoping later on though I get some minutes in for the flight and I'm drinking my water. I don't know if I will make it to 8, but I will do my best. That's all we can do and never give up.
So if you are struggling whether it be with weight loss, exercise, or eating healthy, don't give up. We all have a fighter within us and I know all this frustration I've been feeling is just part of the process to get me to the place I want to go and someday I'm going to be that butterfly. I'm going to be that person who makes it and that will be so worth it!
On your marks, get set, GO!
