I love to be joining in with some amazing ladies for a series that will be happening the 2nd Wednesday of every month that deals with living your best healthy life. I cant wait to see how everyone else looks at the same topic each month. I love getting inspiration & motivation from others when it comes to being healthier & fitter.... so let's kick this off!
This week we're talking about WELLNESS GOALS
So for me.... I am kind of - no, let me rephrase that - totally 100% disappointed in myself in letting my health go lately.
Remember a few years ago when I had a fire in me loosing weight & working out & eating amazingly & feeling the best ever? ..... yeahhhhhhh.... I remember those days too.
I just fizzled out lately. Like REALLLLY fizzled out.
I dont know if it is being in my mid-40's & hormones kicking me in the gut (truly) or the stress of dealing with my job & health insurance issues resulting in one of the biggest life changes I've had in awhile, or if it's just motivation has just gone out of the window.... or a combo of all of it....
but yeah... all that weight I lost? Guess who found me? Yep... all that weight.
The struggle is real y'all. I know this is going to be a life style, every day, every night, every moment decision for the rest of my life. To be healthy & to be fit, its going to take focus on every area of my life. No slacking allowed. Slacking leads to habits... habits leads to downfalls & downfalls lead to landslides....
BUT..... I love a good but (which by the way, I'll get again #punintended)
I have taken the steps to getting healthier for 2018.
& yes, I lost my weight before doing the 21 Day Fix - & it worked amazingly for me. But for some reason, its just not filling my soul right now. I mean, it's not motivating me - I just can't seem to stick with it this time around. Not sure why... I just am not feeling it.
So I have been looking around at different options... the Tone it Up girls, Jenny Craig, other fitness sites & trainers.... & know what I did?
I pulled the cord & jumped & made the leap... I joined Weight Watchers!
& can I say, I'm pretty excited about it.
This new point system? I see what Oprah is yelling about now.
As a vegetarian, its REALLLLLY nice too - because a lot of foods that I eat as stables as a vegetarian are "free point" foods. Crazy, huh?
Free point foods dont even have to be measured or weighed - they're free. Which is nice because veggies & fruits? Eggs & tofu? Beans & lentils? I can eat all I want.... how incredible is that?
Even on the 21 Day Fix - you are limited to how many fruits & veggies you can have - with fruits being a low amount for a day. I'd eat my daily fruit by noon.... which is strange to think that fruit is limited - & I get it - it has natural sugar... but still - its full of vitamins & healthy stuff for you.... not limited any more.
& I'm loving the web page & app & the community that is on all of it... So far, I'm really impressed.
I have big goals ahead. I still want to get the 50 lbs BACK off. (insert head droooping sigh here)... but I know I can do it. & I'm excited to get back at it.
This is the fire I was talking about my soul needs...
Wish me luck... & I'll be posting updates, I'm sure!!!
Who knew me & Oprah & DJ Khaled were going to be best friends?
