Happy Hump Day!
Lot's of wonderful motivation is surrounding me and it feels oh so good.
What is my motivation you ask?
My little black dress. My LBD is hanging beautifully next to my treadmill because I want to wear that baby come summer. I love one shoulder dresses and have many but my confidence level/body is not quite where it should be to rock this look. With wedding/summer season approaching I have A LOT of dresses that I want to wear while I am at weddings, bridal showers, bachelorette parties so now is the time to keep those events in mind and work hard.
Pictures from Summer 2011: This was my wedding summer and I worked my ass off (literally) to get my weight under control and to a point where I felt beautiful and confident. I let myself go in 2012 and I know this year is my year to feel good, look good and honestly feel youthful. I am 25 and I want to feel sexy and young - the way a 25 year old should be feeling.
Future Baby "E": Although I am not preggers at the moment - I do have baby on the brain. I need to prepare this body of mine to be safe home for my future babes.
My Husband: He deserves to have a confident, sexy, happy wife.
While a lot of my reasons may sound superficial - which they are - they all revolve around the same feeling for me which is confidence.
Things that I feel are working for me right now:
- Taking baby steps as I get back in to the work out world.
- I am keeping track of EVERYTHING on myfitnesspal.com, which has been a great (free) site!
- Making weekly goals for myself.
The weekly goals have been a big help for me. Usually I make my goals unrelastic and so long term that I am unable to keep them. One of my resolutions this year was to make one health related goal a week, stick to it for the week and then I can move on to my next goal. This week I have eliminated ALL frozen meals - which had become a easy go to lunch and dinner option for me and my busy schedule. I have been concentrating on measuring out portions of food, eating non-labeled foods and have really just been focusing on eating cleaner instead of the processed frozen crap and zap I put in my body. Obviously, there will be times when that is the most realistic meal (my husband hates the word meal, it makes me laugh when I write it) option for me.. but I am trying to learn new habits and eat better we a whole.
