I’m finally back on track with my journey and my adventure to a healthier me. A lot of stuff went down in my family and it was all just stressful and stuff so I wasn’t really in a place to focus on just myself. But my time away did help me to come to some conclusions on how to do better for myself in a beneficial way. For years now, I’ve been trying to lose weight and become healthier - I would always get pumped up and start strong, tell my family and friends, want to talk about it all the time but then the first time I would stumble, I would just give up. Every. Single. Time.
So I have made some changes in order to insure that this is the beginning of the life change I need.
Firstly, I came to the realization that this is for me and me alone. Not for anyone else. Yes, it might have been fun and enjoyable to tell my fam and friends every little thing, to involve them in what I view as a huge thing in my life but it never really helped me in any way. It didn’t help me stay strong - it crippled me. It made my little stumbles seem huge because I had placed myself under a magnifying glass for all to see. My pride would then read it’s stubborn head and force me to quit all together,
That brought about my second determination. I had always read and seen the pics on tumblr or Facebook or Instagram or whatever that said one bad day doesn’t ruin everything but I had never really taken that to heart. But it is completely true,
So no more. I am not going to try to pull anyone onto my journey, I’m not going to bring it up in conversation, I’m not going to make this about anyone but myself. Because this is mine. My journey. I am also not going to let any single stumble or bad day make me upset. I am still a work in progress and 100% imperfectly human - mistakes will happen; I will eat badly, I will skip a workout. But I won’t quit,
So this is where you lovely people come in. It has only been a week and I am bursting to talk about my successful but full-of-stumbles week! So, I’m not sure how many of you all actually care to read anything I say or post but I shall do so in hopes that some of you do. I am always open to feedback or random thoughts. Hit me up, I love talking to people :]
Stay strong \m/
