Today was red sox day at work. so last night after amara had try outs for travel basketball we went to kohl’s because we both needed new red sox shirts. i tried a few different ones on and the one i liked i got a large. i didn’t try it on. i did try the medium and liked it but self doubt got in my head and i grabbed the large. -
this morning as i was getting dressed the large was swimming on me. i ended up going back to kohl’s to do an even exchange for the medium.
i know i have lost about 15lbs since last february but sometimes in my head i think i am still the same size. why is that? maybe it’s because i was wearing pants that were a little too snug and now they are fitting like they should be. maybe it’s because i would wear hoodies whenever i could to hide the muffin top (but let’s be real, it was still there).
i am still the girl who eats pizza. i am the still the girl who eats dessert. i am still the girl who is a carb lover that eats bread and pasta. but through the awesome nutrition program i have been following since may (right now it’s more 80/20 than 100%), eating when i am hungry rather than eating because its time to, literally increasing my steps from just walking to doing a second round on a program that i absolutely love has changed my mindset and the mental aspect of my journey, not just the physical. -
i don’t put the pressure on myself like i use to. i use the scale to gage how my body responds to what i am eating and the timeframe i eat my meals in (who knew 8pm would e my cut off time), getting enough sleep (yup 8 hours makes a difference vs anything less), and this is a biggie… doing a program where you workout 4 days a week vs 5-7! yes, the workouts are longer than i like (average 45 minutes) but it is doable for me to work into my schedule. once i get the sports schedule and my night job schedule (which is my 3rd job) i figure out what days i am going to workout.
now i am looking for 10 people to join me in a 21 day accountability group starting november 5th. if i have peaked your interest or you have been thinking of doing something but not sure what, we should talk!
