I am an ideas girl, not so much a follow through girl. I am really good at starting something off with verve and vigor and not good at continuing it to completion. Since this summer (when I swore I would have so much time and I would get my butt to the gym…I went twice), I’ve felt super lazy and gross and didn’t know how to get out of this funk I’ve found myself in. Plus it was my birthday on Labor Day and with all the free birthday coupons from restaurants, I’ve been eating like calories are going out of style.
So I’ve decided…
1. To not watch TV. As a self-proclaimed tv junkie (does that sound better or worse than addict?), I realize it takes up too much time in my life, so I’m only going to watch shows with my husband or while I work out.
2. To not scan through my Instagram pics. I LOOOOOOOVVVVEEEEE Instagram, but I got obsessive in how “caught up” I had to be with everyone’s pics. I haven’t looked for a week and so far I’m not having too many withdrawals.
3. To exercise every week day. I realize I think too hard about working out, so much so that I talk myself out of it or think too long that I run out of time. So every evening, I’m setting out my workout clothes and setting my alarm for 5:00am. I’ve made it two days so far and it really helps me wake up.
These are some pretty big life changes (for me anyways) and I’m really hoping to make them stick.
Wish me luck!
