I have decided that my word for this year is going to be "fearless". Not because I plan on living without fear, but because I want to embrace my fear and let it push me out of my comfort zone. I want to do things I never thought possible and that usually only happens when you've got some level of fear. Hopefully you will see a theme in my posts for the next year where I talk about doing things I never thought I would do or overcoming a certain fear by facing it head-on. So stay tuned to see where this takes me!
Also, I wanted to give you an update on my 21 Day Fix progress. I weighed myself this morning and have lost exactly 16 pounds since the middle of October. I am really happy with these results and am proud that I got through the holidays without gaining it all back!
Out of curiosity I looked to see how long it had been since I weighed this much and it turns out it was almost exactly a year ago. Part of me was actually kind of frustrated because in a way it feels like I wasted a whole year. If only I had stayed on track this time last year then maybe I'd weigh much less instead of the same. But, with the helpful advice of an amazing friend, I realized that I need to look at this as an inner growth and know that I have learned a lot about myself in the past year to get me where I am today.
I almost lost that motivation this afternoon when I realized the day had mostly gone by and I hadn't worked out yet. The "old me" would have told myself that I could just workout tomorrow, but the "new me" knew that I'd be frustrated with myself for not doing something I told myself I would do. So I turned on my DVD player and a short 30 minutes later I was done with my full body cardio workout and proud of myself for finishing it.
It's nice to see that with the right attitude and the right support system, we really can accomplish anything we set our minds to!
That's it for tonight, but stay tuned for more!
