I hope everyone’s day has been going well. It is gorgeous here and thank goodness it is. We had the worst thunderstorm 2 nights ago that happened at 2 a.m. leaving me with no sleep. Little fact about me, I get anxiety with thunderstorms, honestly my worst fear ever. So, I am a bit exhausted, but I wanted to write to you all about my fitness journey that I am about to partake on.
For the longest time, I was thin and in shape. I had a huge amount of confidence and self-esteem. I look back now and wonder how I even complained about my body, as it was perfect. I guess you don’t really see what you have when you are in the moment. However, we get older, our metabolism slows down and we gain weight. We don’t mean to, but it happens. It happens to everyone.
Today, I went to see the Nurse Practitioner for other reasons and we got on the topic of weight loss. I told her that it has been on my mind for the longest time, but I have honestly made excuse after excuse as to why I shouldn’t go workout or why I need that cookie when I don’t. I convinced myself that I am fine the way I am, but in reality I am not.
I am thankfully at that age where I can make a turn around before my metabolism slows way down. I have the energy and stamina of a 24 year old, so I am not concerned with this being a struggle. I am thankful that I have the support of everyone to get where I am going.
I figured this would be the best place to share with all of you my journey. I am hoping to do a weekly post every Friday, recording my week. This is the best way for me to stay on track and to stay motivated. It will most likely be called Fitness Fridays because I am so original like that LOL. This, as always, will be my makeup blog, but I like to think that there are enough people out there who will support me through this.
Throughout this journey my goals are to lose weight, tone up and gain back my self-esteem. I want to be able to look at myself in a mirror again and like what I see. I am completely happy with my life but this is the one aspect I am taking back control of.
Thank you to everyone who reads and I am excited to start this!
