Seems I never really can stay on that wagon.
I am not naturally athletic - my knees hate me and I have the worlds worst stamina.
I couldn't run to save my life.
This girl ain't no gazelle that's for sure.
I recently decided I needed to bite the big one and take a "before" picture *boo hiss CRINGE* and boy oh boy did that make something click inside of me.
How did I get here.
How did it get this bad.
And no, don't worry, i will not be posting that horrifying picture here. Maybe one day when I have an "after" picture to share :-)
Besides dusting off my lonely MyFitnessPal account ( join me? My user name is BellaBijou) and doing session of the 30 Day Shred yesterday ( DAMN my thighs hate me today!) I decided to try setting weekly goals for myself for motivation. Sometimes they may be small, sometimes big, but I wanted to give myself things that I could pat myself on the back for accomplishing weekly.
This weeks challenge?
No pop (soda for you Americans lol) for a week.
Seems easy, but I LOVE my Coke Zeros. And while I know they technically are calorie free, they are full of all sorts of other crap I know I can go without.
Don't get me wrong, I still plan on having one as a treat every now and then, but I sure as hell don't need to drink them like water, now do I?
It's a small start, but combined with moving more and eating less I hope it can be a good start in the right direction. Today is only day 2, so time will tell how hard this is for me!
Any ideas for next weeks goal?
I plan on posting my progress here in hopes for a supportive environment.
Let me know what your health and fitness goals are? What have you achieved, and what are you working towards?
