I’ve been living the dream the last few months and by ‘dream’ I mean I’ve been indulging in every carb and comfort food under the sun. It’s time for change so join me for ‘Wellness Wednesday’.
What is ‘Wellness Wednesday’? Well I want it to be a day where we can all join in to support and encourage each other on our path to doing better with our health. It’s winter and my motivation wanes in winter, it might have something to do with the carb coma I find myself in after tucking into cake and cobblers. So I need support and I figured if I did then maybe you do too…am I right?
We can hug it out together. Share your wins, your struggles, your tips and more. Let’s do this for the next six weeks and see how we go hey.
Personally I’ve stacked on 5ish kilos, I knew my clothes were tighter and my arse was lumpy but I did get a jolt when I got on the scales. The real motivation though was I just wasn’t feeling great, I had no spring in my step so I knew it was time to reign it in and step away from the pantry.
I’m back on my elimination plan which means no sugar which means I’m a major pain to be around the last few days. Sheesh, this headache is pounding but I keep telling myself that in a few more days I’m gonna feel great. I will!
Another thing I did this week was start Pilates! Yes I’m now doing Pilates on a Monday and yoga on a Tuesday, it’s something I’ve wanted to do for ages but the cost put me off. My new massage girl is an occupational therapist and wouldn’t you know…a Pilates instructor. She’s teaching out of the same studio that I started doing yoga in so I saw it as ‘a sign’. Sure it’s costing me a few extra dollars each week but I figure if I stop eating out as much and ditch the cake at the café, then I won’t feel the dent in my budget. Instead what I will feel is stronger and healthier…good payoff I think.
WORDS OF WISDOM…this week be aware of what you say about your weight/body and who is listening. “I’m so fat”…’If only I could lose Xkg’…”I hate my body”….please remember that your body hears this which is bad enough but don’t let your loved ones hear you talk like this. Not only do they love you, but you don’t want to project your fears and insecurities onto them…do you? Speak kind and loving words about your body.
Ok. There’s my little wins for this week, now it’s over to you. What are you wanting to change? Maybe you have a tip on how to drink more water or a recipe you’d like to share. Jump on board and share here on the blog in the comments section below or on the ‘Styling Curvy’ Facebook page. I’ll pop up a post and you can your comment…that way we can encourage everyone and share our tips with everyone.
Can’t wait to hear from you all!
Til next time,
