With it being the New Year, I decided to really focus on me this year. I am one person who does love their self. I am very confident in how I look but I know I am not the same as I was 3 years ago. To be honest, I am a yo-yo dieter. I start and stop and start and stop. Since the beginning of the New Year I have started back to counting calories, working out everyday and walking a minimum of 10,000 steps a day.
My best friend Jess told me today that it is a lifestyle change. We are not dieting. We are watching what we eat. We are making ourselves happy. I want to focus on myself more this year. I want to be at a healthier weight. I have a ton of clothes in my closest right now that I can not fit in. That breaks my heart. I have no problem with my size but I want to be back to the size I was 3 years ago. I know I can do it. I just have to stick with it.
My steps for sticking with my lifestyle change.
one. Watch what I eat. I need to be more conscious of what I am putting in my body.
two. Workout more often. I love running but I do not run all the time. I get burnt out on it very quickly. I have decided to change up my routines and do something different every night of the week so I have some variety.
three. Motivation. I need to stay motivated. I don't want to get discouraged if I do not see the weight coming off as fast/quick as I would like. My goal is one pound a week.
four. Enjoy life. I plan on staying happy and making myself happy on this journey.
Right now I weight 183. I have already lost a few pounds and I will be happy to be at 155 again. I know it is coming. I just have to remain strong and steady.
