What kinds of changes have you made in your life to work towards a healthier lifestyle? Now that fall is coming, I started to get excited that I could forget about swimsuits for a while, until I remembered that it was almost jeans weather. Feeling great in your fave pair of jeans definitely takes hard work and dedication, so I know I can't be giving up on my fitness goals any time soon. It's about time to pull last year's skinny jeans out of the closet and see if they still fit...! Ugh, the dreaded muffin top soon makes its' debut! I think I'm going to be missing my maxi dresses fast.
But here's the thing, we have to remind ourselves that while looking great in our jeans, swimsuits, and/or maxi dresses is a great bonus, taking care of our bodies has to be our main focus here. I have been so grateful lately for all the things my body can do, since suffering from that awful bout with viral arthritis. I feel like a new woman and I have been doing more at the gym than ever before. I'm loving challenging myself little by little.
Some recent victories:
And while I have definitely had some fantastic victories, I've also had some "fumbles" along the way. Right now, my biggest struggles are:
And finally, my weight update. Not that the number really matters. But I am up to 140 lb. Yes, I'm up a pound. But, I'm totally ok with that since I'm making major progress on my fitness. Just need to work on the food choices and I'd be really proud! No matter what though, I'm being kind to me because I do appreciate my body and all that it can do and does for me every day.
So come on mama's, we want your comments: How are you doing on your fitness goals? What are some victories? Fumbles? And do you have suggestions for me on how to work on my personal fitness "fumbles"?
