The wedding we’re attending is for 2 people (S&R) who look like fitness models. They should because they prioritize eating well and exercising. They’re actually the kind of people you’d love to hate if you’re feeling insecure but can’t because they’re too nice.
Two years ago when I began wanting to be more active S got right on board with me and would help me train for a 5 k after she hit the gym. Her soft sell approach had me eating healthier and learning that a healthy lifestyle does not mean giving up the ‘good’ stuff but feeding my being well.
I’m a bit vain so I was feeling a bit self-conscious going to this wedding knowing that their workout buddies would be there. I had begun working out a bit in March but April was a horrible write off as I spent the majority of it sick. Slowly I pulled myself up and began eating well again and exercising.
I’ve been pleasantly surprised to find myself actually wanting to work out. I’m not doing anything crazy. Usually it’s a routine like the one pictured, though I’m yet to get to 10 sets.
My body has changed as I’ve gotten older and I’m not entirely in love with new me. I appreciate my body for what it does but have come to realize that it does a lot of work in spite of me. So this summer I’m recommitting to me.
I’m going to:
- Continue eating on salad plates
- Focus on maintaining a less processed diet
- Drink at least 1.5L of water per day
- eat my snacks out of tea plates at home
- Continue my at home workouts and change them up to keep myself interested
How are you treating yourself?
