I have stopped posting about my fitness journey basically because I wasn’t sticking to it. However in a way I wish I hadn’t because it kind of kept me honest with myself and hold myself accountable. I find it so inspiring to see so many accomplishing getting themselves fit and healthy. It inspires me to give it ago. I’ll start and then stop. I have been trying to find my motivation to keep going. I think that I put so much pressure on myself that it makes me get so frustrated when I miss a day of exercising or go over the calories that I set for myself. It’s basically my thought process that makes me lose interest. I have high expectations for myself and I would like to succeed more than anything. Then on top of that I am constantly comparing myself to others. I’ll see someone post on social media that they worked out 2 hours and in my head it’s like well dang I only worked out 30 minutes. Then I find myself feeling horrible for not pushing myself more. These things have got to change. So I am setting out to do that.
I have decided to change my attitude and think more positive about the things that I am doing instead of comparing myself to what others are doing. I am going to try to find a victory in the workouts I do. If I only workout 5 minutes that is 5 more minutes than I did when I wasn’t exercising and then set a goal to do more the next day. Same thing with my food intake. If I go over my calories one day I won’t beat myself up over it. I will make a goal to eat better the next day. I am also planning on doing posts occasionally if not weekly about my progress. I feel it will help me see the changes I need to make and the ones I have made. I don’t know about pictures yet. Maybe. I guess I need to see where I’m starting. I won’t take on too much at one time. I think that was another problem of mind. I tried to do everything at once. Change my eating and exercise. So I think I am going to try to do one first and slowly go into the other. My goal is to get my motor started and keep going. Hopefully I will be able to stick to it. We can only hope.
