Below is the post I shared on my personal Facebook page today. There is more I’ve felt, accomplished, failed at, and shared but this is a good start. I’m proud of where I am and can feel that I need to step up a few more things in my life. I hope you enjoy today’s post.
58 days ago I was motivated by another individual and their social media post. He motivated me to get myself out of the 8,000 steps a day mode and kick it up a notch. I am grateful for him and his posts on various aspects of his life.
To hold myself accountable I decided to post daily and possibly motivate others. I post my fitness tracker progress throughout the day in comments as well.
It has helped me a great deal to stay accountable and keep moving. I’ve also received feedback and support from people. Thank you to all of you that have helped me.
In those 58 days….
I have missed reaching my goal 10 out of 58 days.
I have bounced back from times of depression quicker than usual.
If I do not get 5,000 steps before noon I’m probably in trouble.
I have lost less than one pound.
Taking 3 small walks a day is better than no walks.
I have clothes that fit better.
I’ve been frustrated.
I have gained support from old friends.
I’ve ate better but still need improvement.
I realized sleep is essential, power naps are okay.
Sunrises are pretty spectacular here in Kansas.
My knees and leg have hurt and I wonder why I even try.
Stretching is a must for this lady.
I am the only person that can really make myself care about me.
My hip hurts more if I don’t walk often.
My feelings still get hurt but I probably don’t blow it out of proportion as much.
It’s social media, if someone doesn’t like your post, they can unfollow you or scroll by, just do your thing.
My process and progress is slow.
Support is really great, but you don’t always have it.
My blood sugar numbers are super good on average!
Guilt within yourself can be a tool to motivate.
Walking to the corner of my road and back can give me 1500 to 2000 steps in no time. Quick as that!
It’s okay to still eat yummy sweet stuff or carbs… just don’t overload.
Pay attention to you. Mindless living doesn’t work in my situation.
A little girl is watching my every move.
My process is just that. Mine.
