We are not perfect nor do we need to pretend that we are. But I do believe it is necessary for us to be the best that we can possibly be if we want to enjoy life while here on earth.
I started my journey of watching my diet and counting calories on January 16th. I will be the first to say, IT’S BEEN HARD… especially on days or weeks when I’ve been traveling. But, I’ve been fairly consistent and am down 12 pounds. I still have 20 more pounds to go and hoping to reach my goal to finally fit into my wedding dress of 35 years ago.
I have failed many times and given in to the Coca-Cola and chocolate but that’s ok. I have missed some days and weeks of exercising, and that’s ok, too. I’m just taking it one day at a time.
Just like the ocean’s tide, I have my highs and lows.
As long as I have the willpower, I will make it. And my prayer is that this time will be different. This journey is teaching me how much I have over eaten in the past and how out of shape I have become, if I can ever say that I was really ever in shape! LOL 😀 I don’t know how long it will take me to reach my goal, but I do know that once I do, my mindset has changed.
Just having turned 55 and living with an autoimmune disease has made me realize that life is way too short to not take care of myself and enjoy life as much as possible physically, mentally and spiritually.
It’s highly unlikely that I will make it as a pro body builder… 🤪 but I will continue my journey. I will continue to count calories. And I will continue to exercise.
Not much muscle tone yet but I am working on eliminating the flab! 😀
Are you in the process of working on something to better yourself? If so, please share. I would love to hear about your journey and what works/doesn’t work for you in gaining results.
