I love this picture of myself...it's the crazy eyes. Like many of you I don't have a switch that automatically puts me back on the perfect path. It's been a hard week in many aspects...only one workout so far, but in many ways there are small successes.
Habits are not made overnight. If you've been living a less than healthy lifestyle it takes more than a few days to become that healthy person you are wanting to be. I think the advice given over the past few days has been wonderful. These challenges are here to help you improve your lifestyle not tear you down because you aren't. Consistency...they key in making any new habit.
In my minds eye people talk about what an exercise freak I am and how I made delicious but healthy food. People are not going to say these things about me if I'm not doing them...but that's my end game. I want this for myself so I can be healthy and happy for those around me.
I KNOW this takes time. I've found that I'm really good at taking my vitamin and pretty good at drinking my water but I struggle to remember to write down my food...and exercise well tomorrow is a new day.
I want you each to look at what you ARE doing and rejoice in those successes and look at what you want to work on next as the next step not a road block.
You are each wonderful women with amazing qualities. Find the good in what you are doing and build on it. Take each challenge as a way to continue to improve. I hope at some points we can find these things to be just a normal daily routine. I'd love to do these things and think...why wouldn't I do them, it's part of who I am.
Please keep going...keep track of those points and post them next week. I really want everyone to succeed and have an opportunity for the next drawing...I'm going to do it in March...our 1 year anniversary :-)
I'm struggling too, you're not alone but together we will do Amazing things.
