I tweaked my idea and edited my last post about the weight lost pyramid, but today I officially (and a little late) started the pyramid challenge. I began my quest to drink 8 glasses of water a day. I have been successful! Though it has made me realise that I really wasn't taking care of myself in relation to hydration before...it was actually quite a challenge to fit in all 8 glasses. I hope by day 7 I will have mastered the habit and can continue it to the end of my goal.
Today I caught a glimpse in the mirror and I was disgusted. I have let myself go again, the post-Christmas/New Year pudge has stuck itself to me like an unwanted parasite. I struggled to haul my jeans over my ever growing muffin top. I couldn't help but laugh at the sight, how could I do this to myself after so much progress over the years? But then it made me realise - this is the last year I will be unhappy with my body.
2014 is the year I will reach my goal of 130 lbs (or as close to it as I deem fit - I've never been that light to know what is comfortable for me). I'm 25 this year, I cannot bare the thought of spending another year being unhappy with my weight and lack the confidence in my body. This has to be the year that I reach my goal. I want to be a woman people will admire, an inspiration to myself.
This post may be short but it is the beginning of my 2014 journey to healthy - to the body of my dreams.
