It's time to get real:
Since finishing high school I have put on around 3 stone, that’s a minimum of 42lbs. That’s crazy. I wasn’t even at my goal when finishing high school. I put the 42lbs on over a very stressful two years of college where I had super hard subjects and no friends and it had a really bad impact on my mental wellbeing.
Around a year ago I made this blog to try to get myself into gear again and restart my health and fitness journey and to be completely honest, I’ve really failed, I went through a year of being healthy a couple days a week (if that) and then eating tonnes of junk food in between. In all honesty, if I didn’t have this blog I don’t think I’d have even done that, the follower count growing each day was my only motivation. I now weigh more than I have ever weighed in my entire life and have managed to look like a before picture. When I first started my fitness journey in high school, I lost 20lbs and was getting comfortable with my body, but now I’m even heavier than when I started this journey.
I’m telling you this and posting this here because this is going to be my ultimate motivation. I was motivated last time and this time I am even more motivated. I will stick to it. I will feel happier with my body, I will be healthy and become fitter. I won’t let people encourage me to eat food that does not fuel my body properly. Starting from today, because today is as good a day as any other, I’m going to restart my fitness journey, and I hope you’ll join me along the way.
It’s okay to fall off the bandwagon, that isn’t the important thing, the important thing is to pick yourself back up and climb back on.
I will try to keep updates on here so that I and others have a point of reference, this is where my next journey starts.
