Motivation Monday #linkup

Things have been hectic around here! I've been teaching Zumba® classes three days a week and it's definitely working my body. I absolutely love it because it doesn't feel like a workout to me. I never imagined burning calories could actually be fun. Who knew?!? 


I've been slowly peeling off the extra pounds I put on during the time my stepkids were with us. I had a blast being free and busy while they were here, but my body didn't like the junk I fed it at all!

Getting back on track can be kinda tough, but I feel so much better when I take care of my body. I think the struggle is mostly mental when it all comes down to it. The cravings were all in my head. When I caved and ate the junk, my body paid for it. I was sluggish and miserable. It's amazing the difference....

I know there are going to be times that I slack. But as long as I get right back on track, everything is fine! You can't be strict on yourself one hundred percent of the time. It's not realistic. I have realized over the past two and a half years that I am creating a lifestyle that I don't mind having for the rest of my life. I'm not the type of person who can eat everything I want without gaining a lot of weight. I'm not the type of person who can give up physical activity. It makes me a better, happier person and I don't want to lose that. 

How is your weight loss changing you?

  1. I needed your post today. I have struggled the last few days with my eating. Sometimes I can get into thinking it is the end of the world, or that it will turn in to me never getting back on track. You are doing so great :) Thanks for hosting Motivational Monday!!!

  2. Hi Wendy! You're right, everyone has a slip up or two along the way, what's important is that we get back to our workout routines and keep going - no point in getting discouraged!
