Ok, so it seems I’ve taken a nasty tumble from the bandwagon. But you know what? There’s a part of me that’s kind of glad I did. Not that I don’t want do the program anymore. I actually really want to! Really! But I’m glad that I’ve had this time off from the routine because it’s given me some extremely helpful insight and perspective into what my goals are and how I’d like my life in general to be.
B. offered me some amazing big sister advice (is anyone surprised?) when I was stumped on what to tell you guys. Even though I’ve been feeling some pretty awful things about myself, she thankfully reminded me that life happens. No one can judge me for that because that’s just how it is for everyone. My commitment is the same, my will power is the same, and my intentions are still good. And in fact, after discussing it, we both agreed that my communication with you guys through the good and the bad is vital to my success, your success (if you’ve joined me and are doing the program too), and the whole point behind this new series.
So being the guinea pig, I’m here to tell you that although it’s a great program, 30 Day Shred is hard to make time for if you don’t plan it out carefully.. and make time for it. It’s always been a difficulty for me to prioritize things that are directly beneficial to me, such as going to the doctor, exercising, eating right, getting enough sleep.. yeah, yeah, I got some shizz to work on. But half the battle is admitting that you have a problem.
In addition, I’m sure that a few people would like to hit me at this point. Reason being that while I’m complaining I’m not trying hard enough and I’m not seeing physical results, my body is changing. I’ve received comments from my boyfriend (who I see the most often so he would know), B., a few friends and one of my regular customers at work that I’m looking more toned. And without even noticing, I’ve actually been tightening my belt by one notch. I wasn’t even paying attention because I was too busy beating myself up! What a silly face. But just think people- I have experienced results (albeit small ones) but real results in only 1 week.
So this is turning into an essay and whenever I get too serious I start getting antsy, so here’s the game plan. I’ve completed 7 days. 30-7= 23. I am going to complete 23 more days, it’s going to be great and thanks again for the continued support through this journey- it’s all for you guys!
And now to be funny, here’s a joke: A man walked into a house. Ouch.
Best. Joke. Ever.
