Things I Love, like dieting...NOT.
My BFF Beckie (who has loaded and reloaded my Ipod on many occasions, and always knows exactly what music I’d like) made this playlist, and I’ve been using it for my morning workouts ALL week! Check out her fitness blog - fitness-flirt it is SO motivating if you’re trying to get into shape!
I feel like I’ve been trying everything to get in control of my weight again - something I’ve been struggling with for a long time. I’ve counted calories (with an app called Lose It - you can scan the bar code off something and it will bring up the nutritional info on your phone. Crazy cool technology!) and I’ve even cut wheat out of my diet! Sometimes I feel like I’ve exhausted all options and no matter what I do I will never get back into my jeans (and my pathological self refuses to by new, more appropriately-sized jeans).
And then I realize, I haven’t tried everything, and I’m not out of options. I have a horrible sweet tooth and allow myself a lot of cheating. I’ll have a few days of being really good, and eating very healthy and then let it go for one day and it’s a huge downfall when that happens. And if I’m to be very honest, with you and with myself, I think that I am sabotaging myself…
I’m finally in a place where I am feeling really confident about my acting and about where my career can actually take me…but I think that scares me a bit, so I am getting in the way of my own confidence by not fully committing to getting into shape.
So there, whew, glad I got that off my chest!
My birthday is in two weeks and I would love to be in this (really cute) pair of shorts I bought myself a long time ago that I haven’t worn yet. So here is to fighting my fear of success and really committing to being the healthiest, happiest version of myself!
