One week from today is the final day of the Summer Shred.
One week from today is the final day of the #TrulyCommitted challenge on Instagram.
One week from today and I turn 33.
I love that the two things that have held me accountable, and have helped move me closer to my weight loss and fitness goals over the past month, both end on my birthday. For me, this past month of committing to my health and fitness is the best possible birthday present I could ever give myself.
Everything just clicked for me this month: my eating, my workouts, and my commitment. Nothing has felt forced or like a chore, it just feels like I am living the best possible life I can live right now. For me, that is the best part.
I am seeing results that I haven’t seen in a long time. When people ask how I find the time I tell them this:
During these past 3+ weeks I have stuck to the meal plan provided by Bobbi. I know many people who incorporate a treat meal into their week, and I also allowed myself to have one treat meal per week if I felt like it. But the interesting thing is I haven’t felt like having a treat meal. I’ve been eating clean foods this whole time, with the exception (if you consider them an exception) of my multivitamins, which are gummy bear vitamins from Costco
I don’t know why I’m in this mindset but I know there is no point in treating myself if I’m not 100% into the treat. You know what I mean?
Now, with that being said, one week from today when it’s my birthday I fully intend on allowing myself to celebrate. What that celebration will look like has yet to be determined.
Cake? Yes, if Lincoln has anything to do with it.
Pizza? Maybe, it is my favourite food.
Wine? Probably, Andrew and I still have a bottle of Anniversary wine to drink.
Progress pictures? DEFINITELY!
And then come August 1 I’m right back to shredding with the Extreme Shred.
