I hope everyone out there is doing well and had a beautiful Memorial Weekend! I have a lot of exciting things going on.
Over Memorial Weekend we went up into the mountains for our 2nd camping trip of the year.
I have also been getting in my Fitmixer BootCamp workouts with a little extra cardio at the old gym.
Okay, so not a lot of exciting things, but still fun none the less.
One thing I wanted to talk about tonight was something that has been weighing on my mind a lot lately. When I first started my journey in 2009, I would constantly remind myself that I was doing it for me because I was worth it. It was my time to lose the weight and feel good about myself. I wanted it for ME, and for ME only!
When I "fell off the wagon", my motivation was gone. I forgot that it was about me. I was too busy, I had a lot going on, my car got stolen, my car was found, my car got stolen again, I had insurance claims, and I just couldn't "deal with doing the workouts". All excuses! Could you tell I gained 10 pounds in the few months after my car got stolen? I attribute that to stress and emotional eating. I ate a lot of fast food in that time. Gross!
Ever since I started the Fitmixer Bootcamp, I have felt that all too familiar feeling of "I am doing this because I am worth it" again and I LOVE IT! I know my self confidence should be high now, because I like who I am. I don't look in the mirror everyday and like what I see, but most days, I try to focus on the things that I do like.The workouts have made me feel strong, confident and the clean eating...perfection!! I forgot how much I love eating clean. I am sure I will reach my goal for the bootcamp, which I will talk about another day.
In the meantime, I updated my Weigh Ins & Rewards page. You can click over to see how I did on my first 2 weigh ins for Fitmixer BootCamp!
Thanks for reading! Have a fantastic day!!
