Ok here it goes...
You remember back a few months ago when I said I was going to work on eating healthier, working out and making healthier life choices, and if I made my goal Joey and I would go on a trip to New York? Yea...well that didn't work out. We changed our minds about going to New York, I ate good for a while, worked out for about a week, and well, now I have gained back all of my weight plus some. My anxiety has returned, my clothes don't fit, and I have zero energy.
So here I am back to square one. Here I go again and hopefully I can stick with it a little longer than last time. This go around there is no trip motivating me. What motivates me now is just feeling better and becoming a better me!
Anxiety is something I have always struggled with even when I was a little girl. So now with a family, bills, and being over weight it's even worse. It comes and it goes. I usually notice a jump in it during summer time once things have slowed down, and when I am away from home. When I make healthier choices I notice a HUGE difference in my anxiety. It's almost nonexistent. This is what motivates me now. The thought of just feeling better!
My goal this time is to still lose 10 pounds, stick with it, work out, and work on the 80/20. At least that's what I think they call it. Eat right and make healthy choices 80% of the time and treat yourself 20% of the time. Although 20% sounds like a lot, which is exciting to me but I could have it all wrong. Either way it's time (once again) to make a change and here I go!
Do you have something to confess this week?
