Reframing my goals
Thursday, January 03, 2013
I haven't blogged in a long time. The truth is I fell off the wagon and got hit by a few horses along the way!
The last year has been a mix of ups and downs personally. I did not work out as regularly as I had been, but did a bit better with eating because I maintained weight for most of the year with a slight backslide over the holidays.
In July of last year I met Carlos! 6 months later, I'm so happy, in love, and looking forward to our future together. Both of us need to lose some weight and live healthier lives (which will probably help to spice up our already awesome relationship) and so I'm hoping we'll do this together this year.
It is January when everyone makes their resolutions and joins a gym. I don't want this to be a resolution, I want it to be the beginning of the rest of my life.
Having found an amazing guy, I am seeing children (not to mention engagement/ a wedding) in our future down the line and that is just not possible at my current weight. So I choose to get healthier for the sake of our future and my own happiness and the thought of little babies in the coming years.
I've found a guy who loves me dearly for who I am (rolls and stretch marks and all) and that has taught me to love myself for who I am now, not who I could be after I lose weight. I am not plagued with the insecurities and anxieties I once was and think this is a great time to make some changes in my life, especially as we plan to move in together in a few months. We'll be cooking together and I'll have someone to help me be accountable!
I can't wait for the next year!
