So we’re a week into the New Year and I can say that I am trying really hard at working toward my goals. I want to remain accountable to everyone by being open about what my plans are.
I want to grow this blog and help more people feel great about who they are.
I want to create my own t-shirt designs and sell them as well as some of my art pieces. I have sold my stuff before at art crawls in Hamilton and really enjoyed the experience.
I also want to get in shape. This is a difficult one for me to talk about. I can talk about body image and generally being happy with yourself, but on a personal level it is extremely hard. I knew that I gained a few pounds over the last year and a half especially when Ben and I started dating and working hard on our relationship again. Dec 29th 2016 is when I decided to weigh myself for the first time in a long time and discovered that I gained 25lbs… I almost had a heart attack. I guess it explains a lot about how I have been feeling and well… enough is enough; I need to do something about it! I know it’s cliche to choose to be healthy in the New Year but I am committed to making it last and getting to where I want to be.
I believe I am beautiful no matter what but this is about feeling good in my own skin once again. It’s about being healthy and energetic. This is an uncomfortable topic to actually talk about however I am excited to see my progress. I chose these two photos because I remember not feeling so great about myself on those days.
Anyone have any favorite workout regimens or tips?6
