This may be the hardest blog post I've had to write to date, but I'm going to be brutally honest. I am the heaviest I've weighed since we opened WIP almost 5 years ago. I know that the number on the scale isn't necessarily telling the whole story, but I have definitely fallen off track the past year and I feel it. Even with the best workouts and coaches at my finger tips, I realize now more than ever that it takes more than just workouts to reach my goals. But I feel it in my workouts...and I feel it in my jeans! My diet is not consistent and I worked out less in 2017 than I have the past 4 years. 2017 was a year filled with amazing trips, memorable times with friends and family, and celebrating (and stressing) over new beginnings (hello Hartford and 40!) but it's taken it's toll. Sometimes you need to just put it all out there, own it, and then come up with a plan to make the change.
So here I go. Another year, another reset. I am going to make some small commitments which I hope will put me on track to feeling my best (and I hope to see the numbers on the scale start to fall). I've started to track my meals again and pay attention to my macros (check out this past blog post to learn how I lost 10 lbs and how I hope to again), I vow to drink more water (and a little less wine) and get more sleep. I've also committed to getting in 5 workouts a week. I vow to make it back into the WIP Top 20 Attendance Ranks for 2018. What are your 2018 fitness/health goals and what are you going to do to get there? Put it out there and hold yourself accountable...I'm trying to and would love the company!
I'm choosing not to focus on where I am but on where I want to be...back in those skinny jeans. We are all 'a work in progress' after all.
