Lighting a fire under my a$$
Monday, April 02, 2012
So, one of the best things about being in a loving, healthy relationship with a great man is that he loves me for me, thinks I'm gorgeous and wouldn't change a thing. The bad thing? He loves me for me and wouldn't change a thing. I've become complacent and lazy lately. True, I exceeded 1,000 fitness minutes per month in January and March but I haven't been putting in the effort to burn some real calories. I'm still going to the gym but I'm not exerting any real effort.
None of this is my BF's fault but my motivation is lacking right now because I know he isn't worried about me being a certain weight or anything. Would I be healthier if I dropped 20 pounds? Definitely. But, to be fair, I'm pretty healthy at this size. The reason I've wanted to lose weight is to feel better about my appearance and how I look in clothes. My BF might think I'm hot at this size but I don't. Don't get me wrong, I'm comfortable with how I look but I would feel a bit better if I dropped some poundage.
So, my goal is to get that spark back. I need to stop eating junk and stop being so freaking lazy. I will exceed 1,000 fitness minutes this month but this time I'm not looking at just the number of minutes I'm working out but the effort I put into it, too. I should be leaving the gym drenched in sweat and barely able to walk. Well, maybe not every time but more often than not. I'm ready to reclaim my spark. Who's with me?
