At work today in gym clothes because I’ll be moving things 💪🏾💪🏾💪🏾. At least I know I won’t be short on moving my body today 👍🏽.
Top photo shows how I can angle my camera and suck it in to look thinner (certainly not feel thinner; sucking it in is work 😂😂😂). The bottom photo shows what my belly looks like without sucking it in or angling the camera. Who knew my tummy was bigger on one side? 😂😂😂
All kidding aside, this shows how far I need to go on this journey—which might seem discouraging, but it actually brings up goals that are not scale-related, and I think those are often more important. It’s the qualitative versus quantitative, if you will. I think I’ll add to this list as I think of things. It is my goal to:
-get in and out of my car with ease (no small feat, ‘cause she a bebe eclipse 😂)
-not have my tummy touch my steering wheel in my car
-be able to bend my knees and hips to put on shoes and socks (y’all, I was struggling this mornin’ 😂)
-have more energy to do the things I enjoy after work
-feel less lethargic and more well-rested overall
-gain most of my vitamins and minerals from my food to cut down on the supplements I take now
-fit in an airplane seat with the arms down comfortably
-walk up a flight of stairs without losing my breath
-make healthy diet decisions as second nature
-not feel as annoyed when I have to be active (do any of my fat fellows feel so exhausted knowing they need to get up and go open the door when it rings?, etc.)
-not change as fast as possible at the gym, etc. because I don’t want people judging my body
-see my feet completely when I look down!
What do YOU want to achieve as your qualitative goal? It can be a small step or a big step. •
Here’s to taking any step, baby or Bigfoot, towards that goal today. #letsdothis together.
