Hello lovely people ❀

My fitness post is finally here! It’s been a long time coming.

I transformed my instagram page into my now fitness journey that I want to start heading towards.

Be sure to follow me:Β https://www.instagram.com/_ap.x/

I am going to go into detail below in regards to the meaning behind these two photos πŸ™‚

Okay, here we go: On the far left is approx May 2016, the middle was December 2016 & the far right was taking September 11, 2017. (I didn’t want to write the date w/ slashes bc other countries take those differently)

The below photo was taken when J went on his holiday on August 31, 2017 & the right photo was taken September 11, 2017.

I will admit, I am not a ‘gym junkie’ but I am working on focusing on my health & fitness.

I want to start watching what I am eating (I tend to just grab chocolate ALL THE TIME), I wast to be more aware of what I am putting into my body.

I’ve been talking to J about protein powders, slim shakes, creatine etc so I am grateful I have his support & guidance with my fitness journey.

Body insecurity has always been a big thing to me, I have never been comfortable in my own skin. I am over living in a negative mindset, so I want to make CHANGE! And, the only person that can do this is ME!

i can whinge, whine, sook, cry etc but the only person that can make change is ME!

I can ask other people for advice, support, guidance, motivation etc but the only person that can make the change is ME!

I really want this! I do! The way I feel physically has a lot to do w/ the way I feel mentally. I know that I need to do this for my physical & mental health.

With Hamilton Island being 65 days away. I know thats not a lot of time but its enough to create a habit & also change my train of though.

Be sure to follow my journey ❀

Wherever you are in the world, have a lovely day ❀

  1. Girl you are looking healthy and beautiful! If you are unsure about how to watch what you eat or how to track what you eat or even the amount you should be eating checkout my “dieting 101” post and the “how to calculate your BMR” post. Both these post and a great place to start understanding nutrition and how to manipulate your diet to cater towards your specific goalsπŸ™ŒπŸΌ

  2. I love that you are on this journey. I just started a journey of my own. I have 2 1/2 years till I turn 50. Being short and stocky doesn’t help. I admire you feel comfortable enough to post photos of yourself. I hope to get to that point. You are an inspiration.

  3. I don’t know what your goals actually ARE, or what you see when you look at yourself, but what I see is someone who, especially in the last photo, is slim and well-proportioned. Unless you’re going for muscle tone, there aren’t many ounces to spare on your frame in the most recent photos, lol. It’s easy for me to compare myself to you, and tell you that you don’t need to change a thing, because I can’t see you the way you see yourself… but you look damn near flawless to me.

    I’m in the midst of my own journey (just worked up to 6 miles/day on my walks), and regardless of what the scale says (most days I don’t even bother to check) I feel good.

    Best of luck on your journey to happiness (because in the end, that’s all we really want, right? To be happy)!

    Namaste

    PS- if you care about such things, there’s a typo in the 2nd paragraph below the Sep 11 photo. πŸ™‚

    1. Its hard bc the way I see myself are very different to way people see me.
      I really want to work on toning my body, I really want to work on toning my muscles.

      I am so happy to hear that things are working our for you & your fitness.
      I am happy to hear you feel good ❀

      Thank you – I need to work moving forward on focusing eating wise, thats where I fall a bit.

      Hehe, thanks for the typo ❀

      1. In my own journey, it has helped me to focus on how I *feel* instead of what I *see*, for example, pasta makes me bloat and gives me a bellyache, even though I love it. If I choose to eat it, I acknowledge I am choosing discomfort later for pleasure now, and that is usually enough to convince me to pass. Same with junk food. I don’t feel bad physically (unless I go on a binge, then cue the bloat, which feels miserable), but if I allow myself to pig out on stuff that isn’t good for me, I suffer mentally later.
        I try not to deny myself at least a taste of something I want, unless I know it will make my body feel bad after. Something about consciously CHOOSING to eat it or not, versus mindlessly eating or militantly denying makes either choice easier in the end. I wish you all the best!

        Namaste

        PS- if you have fitness kickboxing classes there and you can afford them, they are fab for toning! πŸ™‚
