My Fitness Journey

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 ❀

  2. You are doing awesome!!! In order to make this work it starts with self, love yourself first & foremost. I’m actually on a fitness journey as well. I got tired of being tired. Tired of saying I need to lose this or I need to eat better. Well you know, a light bulb πŸ’‘ went off in my head said to me, ok get up off your you know what & do it, stop making excuses. So I did, its a mental thing if you’re not there it’s not going to be right & it’s possible that you may quit for awhile, quit what you’re trying to accomplish . Sometimes I think we will never be ready, you just have to force yourself there. Not necessarily to a gym but to a place when you realize all you have is you. Thank you for sharing that! πŸ™‚

    1. Thank you for your kind words ❀
      Thank you for taking the time to share your thoughts upon my blog ❀

      Yes that is correct, anyone can tell what to do, what to eat, what to do at the gym, try to motivate you BUTTTTTTTTT it is all you! You are the person that needs the motivation & drive.

      Yes, that was like me, constantly whining about what I looked liked & how I felt but never did anything about it.

      Thats right, you mentally need to be there bc if you are not, there is not mental drive.

      Don't get me wrong, I am not on an amazing streak, I have had off days, weeks & months but I haven't given up.

      Yes, I am starting to accept me for me & I am also stopping comparing myself to other girls around me.

      We are all battling our own war.

  3. Keep pushing girl! Take it a day at a time and stay determined and focused on both short and long term goals. I notice that by writing down goals each month I keep myself accountable and it feels AMAZING when I get to check my list off!!! Be sure to stop by my page, I feel like we could motivate one another!!! Best of luck to you! ❀

      1. You’re most welcome. It shows. But it’s also important to know that you’re supported in continuing to discover who you truly are, who you wish to be for you.
        I’ve been there and I vowed to always recognize and let others know who are on the same journey, that ultimate freedom is being who you know you truly are.

        So, this is just a friendly reminder really πŸ™‚
