Good morning! Guess what…? We made it to Friday!
This morning I want to expound a little bit on my post from yesterday. I am so thankful to have found freedom from eating issues and, through Faces of Beauty, seeing myself as the beautiful woman that I am. I don’t need to change to be beautiful, but now that I can move on from a painful past with food I know that I need to change to be healthy. And what better to jump-start a new life in loving my body well than participating in the Blogger Well-Being Challenge through Daily Challenge?!
I was lucky enough to be contacted to participate in this fun 10-day challenge where 10 different bloggers are given a challenge to do and then blog about. And my challenge? Find a picture that represents one of your physical fitness goals.
Well friends, here you go:
In case it’s not blatantly obvious, this is me on my wedding day, marrying my best friend and the man of my dreams. This is also me at a size that is attainable, healthy, maintainable, and appropriate for my body type. Plus I have killer arms. I mean really though, look at those guns! I wish I’d known how awesome they looked back then 😉 It’s really amazing how visualization works, and sports psychologists have known for decades that “seeing” yourself succeeding at a goal is important to actually succeeding. So here we go, I’m putting it out there: in the next 4 weeks I’m going to be embarking on a healthier eating “plan” (the plan is to eat better…hehe) and working out 4 times a week, plus one day of yoga. My goal is to get those arms back 🙂
I love that this photo represents me on the happiest day of my life with the body that I can have for the rest of my life. The fact that I know this is a happy place for me makes the journey to getting there that much better!
What about you? What’s your fitness goal for the next 4 weeks? Make sure it’s SMART – specific, measurable, attainable, realistic, and time-based 🙂
