I had lost sight of the journey prior to January. Although I still put exercise and healthy eating as a huge emphasis in my life and the lives of my family, I had lost focus. I had forgotten why I started this journey. I wanted to change MY life AND the lives of others but I allowed "stuff" to get in the way. I kept saying "tomorrow will be better...I will workout harder, eat better..."
BUT sadly, tomorrow kept getting pushed back on my schedule. Funny how that happens so often, isn't it?
Now keep in mind, I never LET GO of my journey...of my hopes, dreams and determination. It was and will always be there. However, I did let it slip. Instead of giving 110% to my health, it turned into more like 70%. And that's okay. I will not dwell but will LEARN from my mistakes this time.
Who wants to take two steps forward and then Two steps back over and over again?? NOT ME!
So please join me as we put our health and the health of our families FIRST! Give of yourself and push hard. AMAZING things will happen. Trust in the process, IT WORKS!
Day 5 of the 4-week challenge and hubby & I are 5 lbs down, each! Woohoo! Determination goes a long way, doesn't it!?
A few snapshots of meals these past few days. We are carb cycling so some days will vary:
Tuna with pepper, 1/2c brown rice and spinach with squeezed lemon!
**STAYING PREPARED IS KEY!**
And a progress pic! I feel leaner in my arms and shoulders which is a huge problem area for me so I'm proud! Can't wait to see more changes in my physique as time passes...
Honestly I'm 8lbs lighter than I've EVER been IN MY LIFE! Woohoo! It's the little victories!!!!!
