Als Mama von zwei Kleinkindern weiß ich, daß im Alltag oft die Zeit (und teilweise auch die Idee) fehlt, sich um das eigene mentale Wohlbefinden zu kümmern. Wir sind uns oft darüber im Klaren, daß wir was ändern wollen, zeitgleich wissen wir, daß radikale Lebensveränderungen nicht drin sind. Müssen sie aber auch gar nicht! Denn jeder noch so kleine Schritt in die richtige Richtung ist ein Grund zur Freude! Und um diese kleinen Schritte soll es im Mai bei @meinstarkeskind gehen.
Ich habe mir 31 Mini-Challenges überlegt, die mich ein Stückchen aus meiner Komfortzone holen. Manche kosten mehr Überwindung, manche weniger. Es sind kleine Dinge, die den Alltagstrott durchbrechen und die Selbstwahrnehmung schulen sollen.
Wenn Du auch Lust hast, Dich ein bisschen selbst herauszufordern, mach mit! Ich freue mich! Deine Fotos, Gedanken oder Erfahrungen kannst Du auf Instagram posten. Versehe sie mit #smallsteps und dem Tages-Hashtag, dann sehe ich Dich auch. Oder Du tagst mich einfach @meinstarkeskind.
I’ve failed before I can even see a loss. Ate $10 with of a McDonald’s for breakfast today. Drank hardly any water. Had all the carbs for lunch and over two bottles of wine tonight.
I have no idea where to start. I wish I could say I believe in this journey and that the process could work but I’m so skeptical right now. I don’t believe in myself. I am so ashamed of where I’ve let myself get I don’t know that I can ever see myself getting out of it.
Having no one, and I mean no one, who understands what it’s like to be morbidly obese and at such a low in your life that suicide has been a thought is a very hard thing to go through. Especially alone.
I went on vacation recently with my sister. We did a lot of hiking and every time I was out of breath and had to stop she would just turn around and stare at me. She would pretend like she needed the break but she didn’t. If she was with an average size person she would have never been slowed down. She would have been able to see and do so much more.
I need to find my way out of this deep, dark, alone place I’m in. Even if you don’t believe, please pray for me. I need all the help I can get.
It’s easy to take for granted the little things that come some simply to most of us. We are working on it every night and f#%% some nights are harder then others BUT we aren’t giving up 👊🏼💙 #jack#myfighter#smallsteps
I have a girls trip coming up in June and I was just thinking about how awesome it would be to stop messing around with my nutrition and workouts and go on this trip feeling like my healthiest and best self... 💋
You know that pair of jeans you have hanging in the back of the closet? The pair that is a little too tight and doesn’t quite fit any more? Or maybe you bought them on clearance even though they were a size too small (like I did) but had mad determination to get into them. 🔥 It might not even be a pair of jeans, maybe it’s a skirt, or a pair of shorts, or even a swim suit?? 🤷♀️ Doesn’t matter. Pull them out of the closet/dresser because it’s time to get into them!!! 😍 Seriously. Im pulling mine out and hanging them up because I want to be in mine before June 20th. Do you want to do this journey with me?? 🙋♀️ Post a picture of the item you want to get into it back into to hold yourself accountable. 😘😘 Lets do this!!! #onesize#onesizefitsall#skinnyjeans#shrinking#sizedown#healthjourney#jeansdenim#getfitstayfit#closetgoals#smallsteps#bigchanges#booknerds#bookworms#runnergirls#projectme#growthmindset#tattooedwomen
Everyday I’m trying to be better. Some days are harder than others, but I’m not perfect. I’m going to give myself grace and a good pep talk before bed and hope for tomorrow to be even better.
Meet my cousin Melissa!! When I first made the decision to better myself, I was constantly seeking motivation to workout and eat better.
If I didn’t “feel” like it, I didn’t do it.
I’ve learned that I’m never going to just wake up and all of a sudden “feel” like it. CONFESSION: I’m hardly motivated but I know what I want to accomplish and I refuse to let anything- including myself- get in the way.
There’s no secret. Stop looking to boost your motivation and just DO IT. Success comes from doing what you have to do whether you’re motivated or not.
Don’t ever give up. Don’t let frustration knock you down. Don’t let fear stand in your way. Don’t let time get in your head. Who cares how long it takes or how many times you try? Your only competition is YOURSELF. And when you finally succeed/reach your goal, the struggle will be all worth it.
Weight loss is 100% MINDSET.
80% nutrition, 20% active lifestyle.
Since we were on the subject of sugar and another natural sweetener is syrup I thought I'd share the syrup I switched to a while back... this organic syrup has one draw back and that is price! It's expensive! I held off on the switch for a bit but didn't feel right about it. My kids go through syrup like crazy! Sooo I tell myself it's money well spent! You cant put a price on health especially your children's health. I'll do anything for my kids! ❤🏃♂️🏃♂️🏃♂️
There was a coupin for it this week too!
Got fat...got thin...got fat again!! 🤦🏽♀️ Going to track my progress and try each day to stop worrying and comparing to myself to how fast or how fit I used to be....how much i could lift or squat and just build from where I am now.....The battle in ya mind is wayyyyy harder than going to gym and eating right!....2nd week in and 4lb down...🙌🏽🙅🏽♀️🙋🏽♀️
