I mentioned how I wanted to get healthier, and lose weight. I did that, but wasn't able to maintain it. I said I didn't want to gain weight over the holidays, I did, and am a little heavier then I even was when I originally posted last year about my weight. I even said I wanted to get in the best shape I have been in as an adult before my next birthday. I am not in the best shape I have been in as an adult, and I still have problems with yo-yoing with my weight. I technically have a little less then a month left before my 25th birthday, so I plan on giving it my all this month to see if I can at least still say I tried and got close to accomplishing No.2 on my list. It is amazing what I have seen people do with just even one month of strong dedication.
I was raised in a family that was always very athletic and pretty dang healthy. I played sports all though out my childhood, and into high school. For that kind of start in life I couldn't be more thankful. I was taught that eating right and staying active was incredibly important.
It can be hard these days to eat right and stay consistent when processed foods are just easier. It can be hard to motivate yourself to workout when you have worked all day and your favorite show is on. Staying consistent in the world we live in can be a huge challenge. I have decided to make my health a huge priority of 2014.
I really want to make the commitment to treat my body better, consistently. I want to love my body, I want to be healthy. I truly do believe that our bodies are our personal temples given to us from our Heavenly Father. We live in a time where it is almost easier to treat it poorly. To feed ourselves with unhealthy junk and be lazy. I fight this everyday, and I want to truly make a change.
So here is to 2014 and doing everything I can to have it stick! Even if it means actually SHOWING you my progress as I go. I find that when you make your goals public, you are more likely to achieve them and feel accountable to them. So stay tuned...
Now to brighten up your day a little bit go enjoy some Sunshine!
