I have struggled. I exercise. I blog. I read about health. I watch programs about weight loss. I am studying to become a Group Exercise Instructor. But, I struggle. My biggest battle is what is at the end of my fork. Or so I thought.
I think that my biggest struggle is believing in myself. Believing that I can do this. Believing that I am able, capable and worthy. I know I have touched on this before, but never really realized that this is what is at the root of it for me.
I haven't start to live the life I want completely. I have had moments of of it, glimpses here and there, but I am holding myself back. It's time to stop that.
I can do this.
I will do this.
The only person that can stop it, is me.
I am worth the effort.
I am worth the time.
I am worth each drop of sweat.
I deserve to be happy.
I deserve to live the life I dreamed of, not a life I am living to please others.
I need to take care of myself first.
I need to remember that I count too.
I need to finally love myself!
I have said variations of this before. But it hasn't changed my actions...err...my fork and what I put into my mouth. Now, that has to change. I can do this. I can. The only way I am going to win this is with my brain....my body will follow.
This month....I have a few goals.
1) February DG Fitness Challenge - Aim for 6 days of 60 minutes exercise each week (360 minutes each week).
2) Stay within my PP for the day. At the end of the day I will track my calories on SP to start understanding what I am eating, how much I am eating and if I need to change up my diet. I think I am lacking protein.
3) February Bahama Mama's Challenge to love ourselves. My goals for this challenge are to be mindful, live with intention and take care of myself. I will also study 30 minutes a day for my Group Instructor certification to gain consistency.
I think this gives me a written plan, with specific goals in mind. I can do this.
I will do this.
