Many people have been asking me how I am doing on the journey to find myself since I posted my first post almost three weeks ago. I thought it was about time for an update.
My attitude has improved. I guess I really did just need to “suck it up” as my Hubby says. Ok, maybe other things played into my attitude change too. I’ve been diligently taking my vitamin D as my doctor recommended, I’ve been making a conscious effort to be more positive, and I’ve been making a conscious effort to be more active. It’s amazing how much better you feel when you just get up and do something.
I haven’t lost any weight yet. In fact, I think I gained a pound or two while I was camping last week. Am I disappointed? A little. Am I beating myself up over it. No. Change takes time and I know that.
My Fitbit remains on my arm at all times and I am learning a ton from it. In combination with MyFitnessPal I am gaining insight into my bad habits affecting my weight. Ugh, I REALLY need to work on my carb vs protein intake! I’ve been doing a little exercising at home but once I get back from being at my parent’s house this week I’m heading back to the gym.
I took a week and a half off from this blog and it did me a world of good. Not only did it give me some much needed time with my family, it also helped me with my burn-out, made me realize that I still get page views even if I don’t post three times a week, and I CAN survive without having to constantly be in the social media loop. Don’t worry, I’m not quitting, just taking a new perspective on how much time I really need to spend online.
My family and I are happier in the past three weeks than we have been in a while. My attitude affects the whole family and changing myself changes them. I think I’m gonna keep this whole thing up!
If you’d like to help support me you can find me as jamieah on MyFitnessPal and through my url on Fitbit.
P.S. A few people (including my mom) thought I was wearing underware in my first post. I was wearing a SWIMSUIT! Come on people, this is a family friendly blog! Even if it weren’t, I’m not posting photos of myself in underware on the internet!
