Halfway to Goal and Having FUN on the Journey!
My greatest lessons so far:
Every day I re-commit to myself to eat consciously. When I think about reaching for something sweet or salty, I look at what’s going on in my life, in that moment – discomfort, conflict, need for love or comfort – and I’ve learned that I can consciously choose not to give into to those urges to ease my mind.
I’ve learned to eat smaller meals through out the day and not allow myself to get famished. This practice made impulse eating non-existent!
I’ve learned that I actually enjoy cooking, and that I actually CAN cook!
I’ve learned to weigh and document everything I eat, and drink 8 glasses of water a day!!! Thank you SparkPeople!
I’ve learned getting fit doesn’t have to be “hard”. I learned to create an awesome context that includes an empowering story full of rich motivation, and I SHARE it with friends, family and the people I work with. I’m inspired, and guess what? So are they!!!
I’ve learned to log in to SparkPeople everyday and play to make the journey FUN and in GREAT company!
Most of all? I’ve learned to just HAVE FUN!!!
My New Ending on InstagramI’m loving my new fitspiration journal. 😍 It’s undated, so there’s no pressure to journal every single day. Gratitude and health goals prompt each day’s entry, and the pages are embellished with fun facts and bits of healthy inspiration, such as this. _______________________________ Sometimes I glance over the bits of fact and quotes and sometimes they push me to think a little deeper about my health journey. ❤️✍🏻 New blog post up: Choosing Uncomfortable. 📲 Link in profile.This is my goal for the week: Meet my protein goal of 30% of my daily intake each day. I may update daily in my stories, but for sure at the end of the week. . . . #mynewending #mneeats #em2wl #ctdm #7dayproteinchallenge #notlowcarb #moreprotein #buildmuscle #livehealthy #realfood #macros #countingmacros #countingcalories #balanceddiet #weightloss #weightgain #nevergiveup #healthycomebackMy husband asked if I could give up the Y for a bit while we settle from our move and get our 3rd child into college. I agreed, knowing I could work out at home, but I was going to try and talk him out of it when I saw how nice our YMCA is here. However, the family price is $35 more than our old one. So, I knew it needed to go for now. ______________________________ My main fitness goal is running and I don’t run well in in the heat. When I saw a @planetfitness near my neighborhood I got excited. Between their great $10/month membership and my husband’s 100% support of my efforts we had a deal! 🎊 . . . #mynewending #mnemoves #anothermotherrunner #mneruns #onefootinfrontoftheother #couch25k #week1done #planetfitness #goals #healthylifestyle #fitmom #nevergiveup #ctdm #em2wl #5KWhen you want to grab a shot of all the feet because we are helping each other with our goals and we made it to the gym today (💪🏻👏🏻) aaand they (the “aspiring adults” as we now call our college age kids) want to show off their “awesome quads” in the process. 🙄😂🤣😂🤷🏼♀️📸 . . . #mynewending #exercise #fitness #fitnessgoals #mneruns #fitfam #healthylifestyle #awesomequads #keepmoving #runday #squats #gymrats #motivation #encourageeachother #supportivefamily #accountability #summerworkouts #nevergiveupOn a lighter note.. Stole this from the internet..😂😂224.2 is my current number. To admit it publicly is on the edge of humiliating. I want to remove all my followers so you won’t know how bad it’s gotten; especially all those who know me personally. 😞 Yet, while it’s humbling, I share it because if I’ve ever tried to be one thing it’s honest. So, there it is. I’m humbled. ✍🏻 New blog post up. Link is in my profile.
