Today I worked out over my 30 minute threshold and went for 41 minutes! I will call that a small achievement for sure :) I also made egg salad today to eat over the next few days along with more chicken breasts, zucchini, and sweet potato. I know my meals are all the same, but I need to use up what I’ve got!
I did not weigh in today but I think I will tomorrow to mark my two weeks. Throughout these two weeks I have learned that you really are the most dehydrated in the morning. My skin gets so dry after sweating a ton. Also, that I have the willpower that I have always struggled in the past to obtain.
I always struggled to push myself past my comfort zones. The only time I really did push myself, it was in the wrong direction. I was losing the weight but not for the right reasons and definitely not in the healthiest of ways.
This time I’ve been pushing myself to be better than how I used to be. To be better than the girl who struggled so much in gym class that she would cry in the bathroom after feeling like she made a fool of herself. To be better than the woman who would go without eating for days and who would faint from time to time because of it.
This is the year for improvement. The year to remember my mistakes. The year to educate myself on how to live a clean and healthy life while loving the me that I am, was, and will be in the future. May the rest of my years hold as great of an impact and the drive that I have now and may they be ready. Because I am not giving up.
