On the same lines as being blessed to be fit, I have been thinking in general how blessed I am to have the body I have. I will be honest, I have never been the most confident in how my body looks. Right now I am really looking to work on making changes to my body (part of my new philosophy). But I have been thinking that God gave me this body, that my mother carried for 9 months (I know getting a little literal...sorry), so why would I want to do harm to it?! By harm I of course mean feeding it unhealthy foods and not taking care of it like I know I should.
With that said the work starts now! I am not going to sugar coat things and say it's going to be an easy journey because I have already been down this road and am currently on a slight deviation. I want to get back on route, not be swayed by others and what they believe, but care for my body how I know I should. I have come up with an idea that should start this mission off on a good foot. First, I want to invite all of you to join me on this LIFELONG journey! My idea to start us off, is to set weekly goal(s). This way we focus on achieving small accomplishments each week that will hopefully stick in the long run. I don't know about the rest of you, but I have been perusing the bikini sites and I want to wear a bikini this summer without feeling like I really should be wearing a one piece. I just want to get that confidence and I know we all deserve to have confidence in ourselves because we are all beautiful/handsome! So I am going to kick this off with the first week’s goal being...no eating after 10 pm and before going to eat junk food count to 15 and ask yourself “do I really need it”. I think those are some good ones to start with!
