Today Is My Monday

Today is it. It’s time to get rid of ALL the excuses. It’s time to make shit happen! I have made out a eating plan and also a workout plan. It’s time to get real.

Life has been crazy since my last post. (Update post will be live soon) I need someone to hold me accountable. If you are on Instagram – follow me. (beinspired_betrue) I am going to start posting meals (once a day), fit bit stats daily and workouts!

I have to do something. I am tired of not feeling great about myself. I am also tired of being tired all the time. This could attribute to my possible thyroid issue. (more on that after April 13) But I know that when I change my habits, I will start to feel better. I know that I need to do this. I just get bored  and then the motivation leaves. If I could get my brain to realize I won’t see change over night. I didn’t get this way over night!

 

So here’s to today!

 

 

It’s Me…Not You

As you know, if you have been following along, I started the Whole 30 challenge last week. I had such high expectations for this round of it. I wanted to succeed and finish strong. I didn’t want to fail. Sadly, the headaches and cravings won (AGAIN!).

I don’t look at this as a failure. I look at it as a learning experience. I have learned that being that strict with restrictions is not something that my body is okay with. I have learned that moderation is something that I will be able to do. I am still eating clean and I have noticed that I haven’t had many cravings since then. I think when I tell myself that I can’t have it at all, my body goes into panic mode. When I tell myself that moderation is okay, the cravings go away. I know! It’s a mental game that my mind is playing but if that makes me be able to subside the cravings and give myself the best chance at succeeding..why wouldn’t I do that?

whole30breakupIf you are reading this and try to finish the Whole 30 challenge, and you have not been able to do it. I want you to walk away from this post knowing that it is not a failure. Take it as a learning experience. Understand that not every thing will work the same for everyone. Everyone is different and you may need to play the mind game (as I am!) with my body. I hope that if you are struggling, you have to do what’s best for you’re body and yourself.

I give those who are able to succeed on the Whole 30 a standing ovation! (no seriously! I am so proud of you!!) I would love to have a magic solution that would have helped me but that’s not the case. This is my body and I know what it needs and what it can handle.

So… I know breakups shouldn’t happen in a letter but there is no better way then this right now.

Dear Whole 30,
It’s me! Not YOU! We just aren’t compatible. I know you will find others that you will be more compatible with. Good Luck in each relationship you have from here on out!
Sincerely,
Ashley

So tell me, what have you struggled with and it ended up being a learning experience?
