Hey ! This post is ALL about my reflection of the first week of my healthy lifestyle journey! If you have no idea what I’m talking about.. make sure you check out my “Working out and Working on Me ” post.
Before I spill the tea on my first week, I thought it would be cool to share a copy of my workout plan . If you look below, you will see my 2 week workout plan. My plan has some goals I would like to accomplish and is centered around me wanting to improve my stomach, thighs and butt.
So now that you see the workouts I will be doing and my goals… there was one HUGE thing I forgot to include in my first week — that is to love myself. Now I’m not saying during my first week I absolutely hated myself? What I mean is that I began comparing myself to others. I started downplaying my features and idolizing others (THE WORSE).
What makes matters even worse is that I was comparing myself to women who are 5’7 with a smaller body frame. I’m 5’1, with a more curvy body frame. WHY in the world am I comparing myself to a body that’s the complete opposite of me??!! ( Not saying saying you should compare yourself to others with similar body frames either) Doesn’t make sense right! The only thing comparing does is make you decide whether someone or something is more superior to something or someone else! So although I did complete my first week , I completed it with a horrible mindset. (BTW if this happens to you, it’s okay to regroup.) So I decided to make some mindset changes. I began reading motivational books, reading poetry and just kept in mind how blessed I am, instead of thinking how blessed I’m not!
