Day Negative Four

All right, so here it goes. Most diet (or lifestyle change as I'd prefer to call it) blogs tend to start with Day One, right? Why would we start ahead talking about something ahead of time if we haven't even began yet?

Well, I'm going to be the odd one that starts right here, day negative four. You see, it just doesn't make sense to me to start a "diet" on a Wednesday. I'd ordered my 21-Day Fix last weekend and told myself that I would make good choices this week, even though I knew my exciting new package wouldn't arrive until Friday.

Let's be realistic, how many of us think it's absolutely necessary to splurge before getting back on our health track. It's an absolute absurd thought, but I've been going with it for years, which makes every Sunday a splurge for me, since I started a new diet every Monday.

(To prove my insane way of thinking -- I'm showing you my last soda before the big day, haha!)


There's something this time around though, a change in me, that I know is necessary and something that I'm excited about and not dreading. I'm ready to feel good about myself. I'm ready to stop looking in the mirror and wanting to cry. I'm ready to actually leave my house and not be embarrassed for who is going to see me. I'm ready to believe the words my husband says about me being beautiful. I'm ready to be an example of confidence to my two sweet boys.

I'm not so sure what's taking me so long to get to this point, but in case I haven't mentioned it yet, I'M SO READY! This blog is to keep me on track and if it helps anyone else, that's wonderful. There's been many great examples to me that have gotten me to this point and I would love to be able to be that example to someone in the future.

Here's a few things I'd better warn you about though if you've decided to follow my journey:
  1. I'm going to be completely real with my feelings (I mean, if I'm not then what's the point, right?)
  2. You might get annoyed with how real I am (I always prefer to tell all of the details, so that way everyone knows I'm being real, which can get a little excessive! Haha!)
  3. I'm an addict. For real! I love food! It consumes my life wayyyy too much.
  4. And lastly, but most importantly, my relationship with Christ will be a big part of this journey, so if you're one of those that doesn't like to hear about God working in lives, you may get a little irritated on here (but I hope you stick around)!
I can't wait to share my journey with you, even knowing that there will be some ugly parts that aren't going to be fun to share! If you're looking for a few individuals that inspired me to get to this point, here are the two main ones that really motivated me: http://www.livylove.com/ and http://getfitwithashley.blogspot.com/ Enjoy!
