About two years ago, I moved in with my boyfriend. People say that when you get comfortable in relationship, you have a tendency to gain a few pound. Well two years and 20 pound later, I am seeing a big difference. Last month, I had to go out and purchase all new pants! That said, I don’t mind buying myself a new pair of jeans or even going up two sizes. What really bothers me is I am no longer confident in my own body.
My style has complete change. No longer am I wearing skinny jeans and a blouse. I have downgraded to yoga pants, if not sweat pants and a t-shirt. My motivation has decreased immensely. When I was out in Portland for 6 months I went hiking 3-4 times a week. I didn’t even think about loosing weight or getting in shape. I just focused on being in touch with nature. Over the 6 month I was in the best shape of my life and at my happiest. Now a-days walking the pup has become a chore.
The goal for this challenge is not just to shed some weight. This is about getting my body to a place where I can hold my head high, be confident and comfortable in my own skin. Above all things, it is about regaining the motivation I once held.
Over the next month, I will be partaking in a 30-day full-body at home fitness challenge. This challenge is all in home, so no going to the gym. Plus! (Although, I really do like the rowing machine, so I might throw that in here and there). This work out focuses on, core strength, with a combination of Pilates and barre exercises. All of which, I have never done. So, lets see how this newbee does, shall we!
