About two weeks ago I had reached a breaking point. I was frustrated with myself, my body and my eating habits. However, instead of shoving those feelings down with a doughnut, I was mad enough to do something about it.
So, I posted this:
So I’m really not happy with my weight right now. And I just want to put that out there because I’m trying hard to commit to that whole regular exercise and eating healthy thing, but I’m really more of a curl up with a book on the couch with junk food kind of person. So I told myself that I’m going to exercise for two weeks and eat right. And I just need to see a little change to help kick me in the butt to keep working harder. So yeah. That. And this is my total ‘working out is HARD’ face. #joulesgetsfit #fitmom
If you feel like it, click through and read the comments. You guys are kind of awesome.
So, I decided to make some small sustainable changes to my life. I started eating a little better, but didn’t go total DIET on my life. For example, when I had a work event at Krispy Kreme I ordered one original doughnut and a coffee, instead of one original and one with cream filling. I also decided to try to do some type of work out every single day.
Here is today’s update:
Exactly 2 weeks ago I posted about how I needed to get off my butt and start working out and eating right. I said I was going to do it for 2 weeks and see how I felt. You guys gave me some awesome feedback and support and I really appreciate it! So, here is an update: I worked out 14 out of the last 15 days and ate a little healthier. I still had the occasional donut and ice cream. I lost 5.4 pounds. I haven’t woken up with acid reflux since I started and feel so much better in general. I’m going to keep it up for 2 more weeks and check back in. It’s hard, but it’s worth it. 😁 #fitmom #joulesgetsfit
I’m not where I want to be yet, but I’m on my way.
