Since losing 50 pounds in 2011, I still occasionally find myself slipping back into old habits. Eating larger portions, indulging in more sweets & fatty foods, & drinking more high calorie beer than is necessary, or healthy.
Recently I realized that the pounds were slowly beginning to creep back on, and I was becoming more and more uncomfortable in my own skin. My clothes were becoming tighter, I was more self conscious, and I just didn’t feel as good as I usually did.
It was time to make a change and get back to practicing what I preach. So even though I’m not one for New Year’s Resolutions, it was high time I made one. I was not going to waste everything I’ve worked so very hard for.
Since we rang in the New Year, I’m eating healthy again, have cut out alcohol, and have kicked up my workouts a notch (who’s up for two-a-days?!?). My hubby has even made a commitment to getting healthy, and we’ve enjoyed a few date nights spent out hiking with our rucks instead of bellied up to a bar. It’s fun!
Think all of that can make any difference in just a few weeks?
Well I don’t know… What do you think?
Well I’m feeling great again, and I’m so happy to have committed to being a healthier human against. Not only for me, but for my family, and for you, my readers!
Keep working hard on your own resolutions, and 2014 will be an amazing year of positive change for you!
I’ll stick with it, and I hope you do too! Happy (belated) New Year!
