It’s no secret that I am on a forever diet promising myself I’ll be good tomorrow or start again on Monday.
Generally these days never come and I end up eating the wrong things and then wishing I hadn’t!
I’ve started walking to work each day and using my Fitbit more which is helping to motivate me~now if someone could motivate me to stop eating chocolate aswell that would be marvellous!
This last week or so I’ve been having a huge clear out and de~clutter at home which is much needed.
Whilst doing so I have come across old photographs and apart from being shocked at how young I looked back then a few other things have caught my attention, mainly the way I looked over the years. In the photos I can see how I was slimmer at times and also bigger too. I looked at those photos and thought wow I wish I looked like that now and also oh my goodness I’m glad I don’t look like that now.
So this morning as I was getting dressed I stopped and paused, usually I avoid the mirror like the plague but today I looked and thought to myself ‘do you know what? This body has had 3 babies inside it, (sadly only delivered 2)
It’s had three major operations over the course of a one year period, and dealt with the inevitable ups and downs of life’.
It may not be perfect to look at but I’m healthy and I’m happy.
I know what I need to eat and what I need to do to lose that weight and tone up and I like to think that one day I will find myself more at ease with my body.
But for now~I’ll try and make the most of what I’ve got after all it’s not so bad, and it deserves looking after, however I can’t promise to stop eating chocolate or of course my favourite cherry bakewells, I’ll try and give it more water and less coffee well ok lets be realistic not less coffee but maybe the same amount of water to keep things balanced!
Happy Friday everyone.❤️x
