day fourteen

i'm still a little in awe of the progress that i've made.  i know it's a direct result of my efforts, but that hasn't always been the case.

there have been days, even weeks, that i've committed to going to the gym 4-5 times a week and have followed a nutrition plan, and i just haven't lost many pounds or inches.  but something about this 30 day cleanse really works.  i think being in the proper mindset to be prepared for the tough hours of not eating on cleanse days and the first few days of getting used to the program is so important.  because once you commit, you're committed.  the only person that can compromise that commitment is you.

it's taken me a long time (over two years!) to feel like i'm really doing it.  like i'm really on the path to lose weight.  maybe i wasn't confident enough that i could do it.  maybe i didn't feel enough support so that i would do it.  i knew i should do it, but could-a, should-a, would-a.  

if you want something, go after it.  

you never know what amazing things will grow out of that amazing first step:  commitment.

today i started a new program at the gym and it's going to be great.  i'm already looking forward to making progress with weights and kicking some serious @$$.  it's funny, in the past, i've done contests at the gym, and there is one coming up, but for some reason, this time around, i don't need that kind of motivation.  i don't need a cash incentive for me to change my life.  i can motivate myself to be a healthy wife and, one day, a healthy mom.

if you're looking to participate in this 30 day program or want to ask me about, well, anything, email me!

  1. I really like how you said "the only person who can compromise that commitment is you." SO TRUE.
