It’s officially 2017, even though I’ll be writing 2016 on everything for about 3 months, I’m excited! I haven’t set many goals for this year simply because I’m not sure what direction life will take me. I don’t want to set goals for one thing and life sways in a different direction. There is one thing I do plan on improving, my health!
I’ve always been on the thicker side, but it’s never bothered me. I love my curves and everything else about myself. After having two children things changed. I’ve become more self conscious… I find myself asking my fiancé the dreaded question “do I look fat in this?” So instead of beating myself up about it a day longer I’ve set mini weight loss goals for myself throughout the year!
First thing I plan to change is my diet. Though I don’t eat super unhealthy there are changes I plan on making. For one I plan to completely cut out meats. I know that’s a drastic change. But I’m not doing anything cold turkey. I know having a healthy lifestyle will take time…determination. I plan on only drinking water with the exception of teas as I love nice hot tea. And a few other things I plan on sharing in a later post.
Physically I plan on being more active. Wether me and my fiancé hit the gym or do a workout out regimen indoors I plan on incorporating exercise at least twice a day. Being a stay at home mom gives me so much time and opportunity to get out and move. I’m definitely going to be taking advantage of it!
I plan to document my progress,victories and set backs through my blog as well as Instagram. I’m using a fitness device called Jawbone UP to track my food/calorie intake as well as my steps and sleep cycles.
As you see above, the app lets you keep track of your journey and set goals for you to reach. I’ve set all of the settings for the recommended setting except for the weight loss section. I’m not necessarily trying to lose a huge amount of weight. Simply trying to be healthier for me and my family as well.
So here it is. My beginning journey pictures and facts.
I’ll be updating periodically throughout the month and a progress picture update every 3 months.
I hope you all don’t mind me slightly shifting my blog direction. Do you have any goals you’re looking to reach this year?
Thank you all so much for reading!
Hopefully this can inspire and help someone else!
Let’s keep in touch on my socials!
