folks. As I've been going through this transition of #caring
about myself again, some things have been a huge #challenge
. Finding the #strength
to push through it and not give up and fall back into old ways/bad #habits
being the toughest. Now that i have lost almost 50lbs the real "#work
" begins. I've chose to make this "new me" the "forever me". This morning I was able to successfully do 20 real push-ups. I was so out of shape when i started this #journey
, that i couldnt do 5. I was also able to do 100 curl ups...50 with weights and 50 without. I started out a month ago doing 20 with no weights and it hurt. I also ride my bike stationary for 30 minutes now instead of 15. Anyway, the point of telling you this? Well, the point is that I am making progress...I am getting "me" back. I am getting stronger and stronger each day and things are feeling better and better. Its still painful completing 100 curl ups, but I have made it a goal to lose my dad belly and its already about half the size it used to be. :) I'm learning that its possible to still be a great #Father
, minus the "#dadbod
". I am just putting this out there for anyone else #struggling
with making changes. YOU CAN DO IT. But you can only do it if you truly WANT TO.
I used to eat like shit...I used to #smoke
at least half a pack of cigs a day, sometimes more...I didnt #excercise
,...and you know what? It all showed. Not only in how i looked but also in my #attitude
. I was #depressed
because of things that i thought i couldnt change. I have now been a non smoker for 4 years...a non vaper for close to a year, and i rarely consume sugar and dairy now....which has easily been one of the hardest cycles to break.
I stand here today reassuring you all that its never too late to start.
Anyway, I wont bore you with anymore of my positive jargle. I firmly believe that we get back what we put out into the universe. I choose to spread #love
and words of #encouragment
....If this post or my #changes
can even #inspire
one other person Ive done my job... Hope you all have a great day/week. Practice #compassion
for others and put your light where it needs to be :) I love you all ❤
