For the majority of March I was participating in Instagrams "March 2 Fitness". It was a really good motivator until I became so busy with working out and eating healthy I didn't have time to post pictures! My main goal was to break my 2 week slump. Typically I will hit the gym hard for two weeks and either I get sick and stop going, or, I just decide I don't want to anymore. So the plan was to go at least 5-6 days a week for 3 weeks. I am proud to announce I went 4 to 5 times a week (or worked out/ran at home) the entire month of March. For me getting over that one month slump meant a lot. I feel like its taken this month to make eating healthy and staying active, not just something I do to loose weigh,t but a total lifestyle change.
Another past wrench in my gears has been weight. I realized that because I focused on how much, or how little, I was loosing would completely throw me off. If the numbers on the scale weren't what I wanted them to be when I wanted it to be then I would quit! So this time around I am not weighing myself. I've been taking measurements to make sure I am making progress. For me this has got to be about the way I perceive myself. Do I feel good? Do I think I look good? Yes? Then GREAT! I am temporarily counting calories to cut a little weight but I am not making it a life long thing. I am loading up on veggies and I love it!
Shane is even getting on board! I am so happy. Changing your lifestyle to something that is right is never going to be easy. I can promise you that its going to be one of the hardest things you've ever done! However the results are so completely worth it!
