This is me lately. I need to get back into a healthy mindset. I'm not there lately. I'm obsessing. The scale is moving in the wrong direction and I'm just completely ready to break it.
I know this is mostly mental, though, because pants I was dying to fit into are almost so baggy I can't wear them anymore. That's AMAZING, right?? But I'm so fucking discouraged by the damn scale. I'm certainly not perfect. I know there are things I need to work on with my eating, there probably always will be, but I just can't figure out how to do this right.
That being said, I've changed my macros AGAIN. I am ready to give up entirely some days, not going to lie. But I know better. And I know that I may not be hitting my goals right now, but I definitely won't if I quit.
Any tips are appreciated. I was really hoping to reach my goals by late September and they just keep looking further and further away. I'm sorry, I know I'm supposed to be positive and motivating, but I'm just not feeling it today.
It has been a very dark and scary week but If you need a little sunshine on this #solareclipse day, take a minute and enjoy our Mini Movie Musical that we are so happy to share with you ☀️(link in bio)
"This motivational Monday isn't about wearing fancy suits, or selling millions in real estate sales... it's about being dealt a challenging life and over coming it, it's about getting comfortable with the unthinkable, it's about getting up in the morning with several tubes hanging out of your body plus a permanent ostomy and being the best damn mother to your beautiful miracle baby. It was easy for me to get up this morning as I was thinking of my sister and all the road blocks she faces every day. You are a true #crohnswarrior and leader in overcoming it all. Your courage and drive inspires the whole family. Thank you for being who you are."- @movewithmichael
I've carried this notebook around a lot since April '16. I picked it up from Mom's desk when I was overwhelmed with it all. I've gathered my to do's, important numbers and meeting notes. I added the picture to remind me of her joy in heaven. Time to put it down and file it away. Rest in Heaven with your true love.
Are you struggling already at the beginning of the week? Yea, me too! Life is a beautiful mess! We don't always have our crap together, our kids can be terrors, some days nothing seems to go right, we clean up one mess only for another mess to be made, and the list goes on... trust me, I know! We are all struggling in some way whether we go public with it or not. Just know you're not alone but that you CAN get through it! Cheers to a crazy Monday morning mess just so I can get a shower 🎉 #ablessedmess#wecandothis#justkeepswimming#focusonthepositive
The breathtaking view I was blessed with this morning showed me that it's important to reflect on yourself and life, at least occasionally, to fully grasp the majesty of each moment of the day. Every sight sound touch and smell you experience is a new and wonderful addition to your past and a welcome, vibrant new reflection in the land of your life. I what I'm really getting at is, love your every reflection, each of them is a perfect memory of that very moment. #reflection#lakeside#myview#mondaymotivation
