No More Avoiding Reality
Sunday, March 30, 2014
Well, a LOT has changed since I was last on. I graduated college, moved in with my boyfriend and have a job in my field. Life has gone by all too quickly in front of my eyes and I spent too long not working out, not watching what I eat for long and not dealing with reality really. Living with my boyfriend has been a hard adjustment not just with eating but with the stress that combining two separate lives together under one roof for the first time is bound to bring. I have not felt very confident with myself over the past several months and with factors from work and at home, I really need to work on myself and rebuild my confidence and strength. I have avoided coming back on here because it feels like I am admitting failure but you know what? I did fail myself, but I can't live in shame for letting myself go! I can only take what I have now, using the tools I have gained over many years and start "doin me" now because I deserve it, and I want to feel good about myself again.
I have been going to the gym a few times a week but need to kick up the strengthening portion and challenge myself more. I know I need to be more active in my day-to-day life but it has been kind of hard in this awful winter we've had but no excuse. My biggest, biggest thing is counting my calories again and sadly it won't happen tomorrow I know because I have half of a stromboli (ugh) to get through for dinner as leftovers and yada yada yada but Tuesday I WILL start counting and I will be my best advocate..
If anyone has ANY words of advice, or anything they have been doing that has been helpful for themselves, etc, they are welcomed.
Thanks all :)
