Operation Bikini Bod
Tuesday, February 27, 2018
I have been in one major slump since the fall and no matter how hard I try, I can't pull myself out. I start getting up but then get side tracked. I still have a lot of stress in my life and I know that is the culprit but I can't let it get me down.
So while I was at the gym this afternoon I decided I was making a new goal. Operation bikini body!
My husband and I are planning our 20 year wedding anniversary vacation coming in Winter/Spring of 2019. That gives me less than a year to get bikini bod ready. Is it pressure... um yeah, it sure is! Is it a goal.... YEP! And I do great with goals. It gives me something to work towards. And it is even better when I am told I can't do something because then I do it just to prove people wrong. I am getting this in my head so I push even harder! LOL!
What is it going to take,....
I track my food but I have been lazy lately and not tracking everything. I need to track every bite I take. I need to measure. And I need to get the chips, sweets, and bad crap out of the house. Because I have been "treating" myself a little too much!
Fitness... I usually do not have a problem with getting in a workout. But lately I have found myself skipping workouts here and there. They add up. I need to get back to why I love to workout. I want that feeling again! Right now, I just feel so bad about letting myself go that I don't want to be seen. This needs to change! Because I am more than just a pretty face. I am an athlete! (I was told last week that I have a pretty face. It was a nice compliment but in my head I was telling myself that was all I had going for me. Not great head talk.)
It is also going to take reducing my stress. I am not sure how much I can handle that... I mean, my husband is going through chemo treatments right now. But I have been trying to stay positive with life and that seems to help. Making sure I get in my workout will be a HUGE stress reliever because it will give me those good endorphins. I did get a new yoga DVD and mat so maybe I should break that out a few nights a week.
But like the picture above... all these things create that healthy lifestyle. You can't just pick one. They all work together!
Hard work pays off and I am willing to work hard to get what I want. And right now that is feeling good about myself, losing the weight that I gained back plus some, feeling good in my skin, and working towards wearing that bikini. I can do this! Anyone want to join me for accountability?
