So it has officially been one year since I started my fitness journey.
I am lazy, undisciplined and I hate exercise. At least that is how I felt a year ago. I have always been a little on the heavy side and pear shaped. Once I had children it became impossible to lose weight. I just assumed I was stuck with “mom” body, genetics and all that. I quit my job to become a stay at home mom, which is wonderful. But I noticed that I had more time to snack on junk food all day. It wasn’t really acceptable to sneak a snickers every 10 minutes while at work you know. I realized I needed to make a change. I wasn’t happy about it. I hated even thinking about it. But it needed to be done. I wanted to be healthy for me and for my daughters.
So it has been one year of healthy eating and exercising consistently. I have tried a few different things this past year. I fell in love with weightlifting though. I have had the best results with weights and it makes me feel strong. I love working out now because I feel my body changing for the better and my confidence is growing. I have found that my mantra to keep me moving forward is, “Become my own Wonder Woman.”
My daughters are into super heroes, which is so fun. Who needs a prince to save you if you are a super hero? So here is my art journal page inspired by my mantra and celebrating my one year fitness anniversary.
It isn’t perfect. I tried some new things and the paper fought me every step of the way. But I am happy with how it turned out. I feel that the message came through.
What will you do to become your own Wonder Woman?
