We have exactly 12 weeks until memorial day weekend and what most view as the kickoff start date to summer. The way I see it is I can either be blown away by how much my body, mindset, energy, stress, and all over health has improved for the best come May 27th OR I can be exactly where I am now which is not being happy with my overall health.
Long story short, last June 2016 right when we got back from our honeymoon through the holidays of 2016 this past year I literally let myself go. I ate whatever I wanted when I wanted and didn’t think twice about. The further into the year we got the more and more unhappy I became about the weight I was gaining and then instead of stopping right then & there & fixing the problem I instead emotionally turned to food to make myself ‘feel better’ about gaining the weight, it makes zero sense – I know. But it happens/happened. I would emotionally eat when I was happy, excited, sad, angry it didn’t matter. I don’t know exactly what’s to blame for this weight gain, if it’s because I pushed myself so hard before the wedding and reached my goal of losing 30 lbs and just needed a ‘break’ or if something else is to blame. Regardless I promised to end these unhealthy habits at the start of the new year. I’ve done a fairly good job about making those small changes in my diet and daily routine to get healthier but I’m ready to kick it up into full force these next 12 weeks to feel comfortable in my own skin – something that I’m currently not.
With all of the above being said, today I wanted to share what my top motivators will be during these next twelve weeks. Some of them being a little more personal and others more light hearted like being able to confidentially wear a bikini this summer. To hold myself accountable I plan to do an update here on the blog every Monday. I hope you’ll enjoy following along this health journey and I’d love to hear all your tips, tricks, and advice along the way!
