COMMITMENT AND REFOCUS
I am so ready for 2016…I am going into 2016 ready to take care of myself physically and mentally. I’m feeling so motivated and excited for the new year.
I’m finishing 2015 on a high note – I went to a 5:30 am hot yoga class which was amazing. I am going to a new studio that offers many different types of classes – this morning’s was traditional hot yoga and I learned some new poses. We also did about a thousand planks! I even tried “flipped the dog” pose – I am sure I looked absolutely ridiculous!
An update on the appetite suppressants – they are working. I’m not snacking as much and they are really helping with the head hunger. I’m trying to stay off the scale because I’m back to exercising and we all know that your weight can and will probably go up when you first start exercising. I think I’m down about 4 pounds, but I can feel a difference in the way my body feels. Between the eating better and exercising, I can feel my body is changing again – I feel strong and more flexible. And for me, exercise is great for my head – I feel better mentally and emotionally when I work out regularly. I also change the way I eat when I am working out – I don’t want sugary or fatty foods – and I drink more water, which helps with the hunger. In summary – exercise = good.
So out with the old…no more negative thoughts. And, in with the new…making goals, being happy and content and living life. 2016 will be the making of McButterpants 2.0.
