What if you were Getting Married?...

Tuesday, June 11, 2013

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!

    The point of this blog isn't to lose weight in anticipation for an event, it can help, but I wont keep it for the long term. The message I was trying to get across is that of constantly living for the "good things." therefor working your BUTT off in order to achieve them. So I want to live like I'm getting married, even if it it's not for years to come, because imagine where I'll be when it does happen?!

    I like this! I'm working hard to try to look amazing in the bridesmaid dresses for my sisters' weddings right now. But better to look good and enjoy your body all the time, not just when you have a special occasion coming up.
