“I’ll start in January” is one of the most common phrases I hear these days.
This week I am sharing my story of eating 16-20 cookies on December 16th and weighing in for a fitness contest on December 17, 2013. While it might seem crazy, this moment changed everything for my long-term health journey.
It started with little changes and little habits to add up to significant results. It wasn’t a matter of going all in the first 10 days, or even the first two weeks. Part of me waited until January to truly go all in.
However, for the month of December I made small changes such as replacing a pack of cookies for snacks with a smoothie, eating over night oats instead of poptarts for breakfast.
When I look back at the changes over the last 9 years, it didn’t stop with the weight loss. I went from losing 40lbs to another pregnancy, getting my anxiety under control and learning to truly listen to my body. There was a half marathon, learning to love lifting weights, gut issues, and setting a healthy foundation for my family.
Each step of the way is a learning process but the learning process doesn’t start unless you start.
