September 8th has been an eventful day in my life.
I closed on my first house on September 8th, 2000.
I got married on September 8th, 2001. (I left in 2003, divorced in 2006 – I tell you this because that was the BEST decision I’ve ever made)
I received Incorporation status for Angel Gowns of WNY September 8th, 2014.
I received 501(c)(3) Charitable status for Angel Gowns of WNY on September 8th, 2014.
On September 8th, 2015 – I RESTART MY HEALTH GOALS!
I am RECOMMITTING myself to a healthier lifestyle! Summer vacation is over, kids are back in school, a more regular schedule will be established once again and fitness & nutrition are making it’s way back into my recently slacker life.
I start today with a better mindset, Shakeology with a scoop of Digestive Health, and a plan to work out tonight with Autumn Calabrese! A huge salad is on deck for lunch.
I’m still at 154.4# without clothes and that makes me happy! I’m down from 166.5#! 🙂 I wasn’t planning to lose any more weight, but I’ve decided I want to get below 150#. I think for my age and height that’s logical, attainable and sustainable.
I’ll never be a skinny mini, nor do I want to be. I like having curves and breasts and hips. I like looking and feeling womanly. I feel good. I feel sexy. I feel strong. I feel confident. I laugh loud and whole heartedly again when something strikes me. I like feeling my light shine out through my blue eyes because I feel this way inside. I feel like I can give more to the ones I love because I love myself more now.
Did I love myself before I lost weight and became healthier? Yes, just not like I do now. I’m not disappointed in how I look anymore. I’m not comfort eating because I feel bad for how I look anymore. I’m not sneaking a salty snack when nobody’s looking anymore.
Am I perfect in my workouts? No. Am I perfect with my nutrition? No. But I’m BETTER than I ever was before, and that’s what matters to me.
I’m a work in progress, and I’m enjoying the journey!
