What are you doing to stay healthy this holiday season???
11/1/13 – This workout with Lisa was awesome. For the first time I felt like I could do everything to the best of my ability. I had to change a few things for my back but it wasn’t a big deal at all. I feel awesome. Slowly but surely I am getting fitter and stronger.
I am struggling with my mind. There are so many aspects of becoming healthy. Eating, strength, weight, the way clothes fit, exercises, strength, etc. I can feel good about one aspect and struggle with another. The changes in my body are different then they have been before. I have done fasting, detox diets and then the physique challenge. Huge weight drop for a little while and then back it comes. With the challenge I was never in the right mind set. As soon as I was “done” I was really done. I ate anything and everything. In one way I have no regrets because I was able to spend the whole summer with my daughter and never think about what I was or wasn’t eating. The part that makes me a little frustrated is that now I have somewhere I want to get back to. I don’t want to maintain where I am. I want to drop and get to where I am comfortable. I am not dieting. I am choosing a healthy lifestyle. Great because the changes I am making are for the long haul. Frustrating because the numbers don’t drop, things don’t fit as quickly as I would like. The mind is the hardest part of this whole process. I am not used to or good at being nice to myself. Is where I was when I won the challenge realistic to get back to?
