I’ve been pretty bad at a few things lately. I’ve been pretty bad at posting and also pretty bad at sticking to a healthy diet.
I’d really like to alter those nasty habits and I think the best way to do so is to start here.
My goal for the New Year is not to lose weight, but to be fitter. I have focused on my weight for so many years and honestly, it has gotten me nowhere. I obsess and stress over it, leaving myself mentally and emotionally drained with no motivation or confidence in myself to move forward.
So this year I am focusing on health and fitness and not on numbers on the scale. While I would love to set the goal to be 15 pounds lighter, I know that instead of focusing on health and fitness I would be adopting unhealthy methods to reach my goals. I want to work on myself and a body as a whole instead of focusing on unhealthy aspects.
I plan to achieve my goals with the use of my new Fitbit along with some dedication to lifting. A good friend of mine has taken to lifting and her results are amazing. I want to focus on my body and myself mentally and emotionally.
After winter break I will be entering my last semester of college, starting an internship at a wonderful nonprofit, and continuing on a journey with a man that I love very much. I have so much to look forward to, and I want to do so in a body that I love and am proud of.
I am excited to embark on this journey and to share more inspiring ways with you.
