i saw this video on buzzfeed over the weekend. it was made by an organization in the UK to encourage more women to get active. the tagline is this girl can. i watched it twice in a row. i love the little sayings throughout the video like – i jiggle, therefore i am and sweat like a pig, feeling like a fox. (plus, i forgot how much i love missy elliott. throwback to the 2000s!) it’s just very encouraging, especially when i don’t feel that great about how my body looks and feels right now.
i’ve been at it with my 8-week challenge for two weeks now. as time goes on, it doesn’t get easier, but it gets better. it is called a “challenge” after all. i’m enjoying having a strict schedule and order of my workouts. i don’t have to think about anything. i just do the workout for that day. because i have to mark it on my workout calendar on fitnessblender.com when i complete it, i feel like i have to do it or i’ll get behind or something. in a weird way, it is motivating. plus, i love that all the workouts are different with no repeats.
i’m not saying it’s a walk in the park, but it’s going well so far. like i said last week, i am determined to finish this thing! my food is going well too. i like when things align. there’s still not much movement on the scale, but i’m okay with that for now. i know i’m making progress even if i’m not technically losing any weight. i’ll get there. i’ll break through. because i know this girl can.
