On Sunday and Monday I spoke about SMART goals and being a healthy weight but half of me doesn’t want to be ruled by numbers – either on the scales, dress sizes or the number of inches around my waist, this whole transformation is really about how I feel inside, in my own skin but I’m well aware that keeping tabs on my progress is a good way to maintain motivation.
Today I put on a bikini and took some body pictures, I’ve done this in the past and wore the same bikini so I can compare. I don’t feel comfortable sharing these pictures right now, at some point I will to act as a comparison to start, middle and end.
I actually haven’t actually had a proper look at these photos as I know it will upset me, I am embarrassed with how my body now looks especially with all the hard work I put in last year doing #75Hard! This does act as motivation so it is what it is and I’m at where I’m at so eyes on the prize and moving forward.
I need find another way to monitor progress of health other than with a tape measure and scales, a friend of my mine is interested to doing this kind of challenge with me so I think I will chat with them to see if we can find some kind of word/number scale we could use to determine progress.
