Inhale Confidence and Exhale Doubt.
This week I’ve taken back the power in my life. If you’ve been following me for a long time, you’ll notice the shift that happened a couple of years ago. I had been all about natural, organic and clean eating and while my kids still eat this way, I’ve been much more lenient on myself. I skip meals, snack all day or make decisions that are convenient.
You can imagine the results.
I’ve gained more weight than I’d like and I haven’t been as active as I used to be. Despite it all, I OWN IT. I am still comfortable in my own skin but, my goal is to get healthy again. This past week I have gone back to clean eating, drinking plenty of water and getting back to being more active.
Ditching Your Doubt.
Through it all, I’ve learned to silence my own doubt and own all my perfect imperfections. Did you know that 97% of women have at least one “I hate my body” moment every day. That is pretty nuts considering that is almost all of us!
Every day since I started my clean eating journey is a challenge, it’s something that is a work in progress. I’m eating lean proteins, fruits, veggies, healthy fats and healthy snacks. I am no longer ruled by the number on the scale either, rather getting healthy from the inside out. I’ve chosen to ditch the doubt and just own what I have the power to change. That’s focusing on getting healthy for my daughters and for my husband and most importantly, for ME.
Start When You’re Ready.
Special K wants you to ditch your doubt and focus on what you can actually change versus getting hung up on the things you can’t. I’m a firm believer that when you are ready to make a change, you will.
