The Love Your Body Project - A Much Needed Update!

It's been a while. Actually, a really long while since I put in some real effort for this years body confidence project.
I'm blaming the fact that we have been insanely busy of the past couple of months, but the reality is, is that I totally could have made time for it if I had even tried a little.
As of tomorrow, we will have been in our new home a month. I think that means it's finally time to stop procrastinating and get back on it.

I guess I've not really had much time to think about my relationship with my body recently, but in the past couple of weeks I've had those horrible feeling of self hate creeping back in. I've actually only gained back 3lbs, so in the grand scheme of things, I'm still down about 40lbs from my heaviest (pregnancy) weight. I think my issue right now is that I just see squishy. I feel a little bit too fluffy for my liking.

At the beginning of this year I gave myself twelve months to finally feel what true body confidence felt like. I want to be able to say that I love my body on New Years eve. I have six months left and I'm nowhere near close.

From this point on I am going to plan meals, exercise (if only a little) evening night, and start to look after myself again. I'm excited for it.
I'm really looking forward to toning up a bit and introducing lots of fruit and veggies back into my diet.

So this is where I am at this point (Left). I can see some improvement, but it's very little. By December, I'd like to see a bigger difference.

I intend on writing an update at the end of each month until my 'deadline', so you can expect a little catch up from me at the end of July.

  2. It's always a good motivation for me to read other people's posts about their fitness/health journey. I've been working on increasing my exercise too. I've picked up running again and I'm glad that I can still do pretty well despite the lack of work I've put in in the last couple of months. I wish you good luck for this new start, you can do this !

    xx, Charlie
