Ok so although life seemed to get in the way of posting, at times, each and every day was covered. I wasn’t anywhere as in depth as I’d have liked it to have been but sometimes you just gotta roll with the punches. Losing my list of topics to write about right at the beginning of these 21 Days really threw me.
With that said….
In the past 21 Days I dropped 6.3kg.
Good things come when you’re disciplined! I haven’t lost any strength, in fact I think I’ve gained a little bit more again which i’m thrilled with.
I didn’t attempt my 17km sprint yet because I did next to no cardio. I’ll hit it though, I’m pretty confident about that.
I took all my measurements on the first day of this and today I can’t find them!!! I moved the piece of paper and now I can’t tell you the difference in measurements. I’m really disappointed in that. If I find it, I’ll share the comparisons. I’m hoping they’re really good. I can tell by the fact that everything is hanging off me that things have changed. I’d just like to know how much.
I can definitely say there is a physical difference. I’m trimming down and my muscles are becoming more apparent but I still have issues with the mirror. I have certain areas that are driving me insane but I know all I can do is keep going and in time, with proper diet and training I can sort that out. I can’t even imagine what it’ll be like in another 3 months time… But I can’t wait! Next year is THE year for me to have reached my goal of looking kickass. So it’s time for me to hustle hard. I hope those of you who have been working on your own goals these past 21 Days have endured and managed to achieve the results you were after. I know a few of you are still going, so stay the course and finish strong! As for me, I’ll keep you updated. xx
If you were to ever meet me in person, I’d hope that if ever anyone ever asked you to describe me in one word once you walked away, you would be able to answer ‘happy‘.
There are many important things in life but the thing I’ve learned that matters the most on any given day… is your happiness. There have been times in my life where I’ve given up my happiness to make sure everyone else felt theirs. It took its toll on me and it showed up both physically and mentally.
On this journey I’ve had a lot of different comments come my way. Most are positive but there are also some that come along that are not so supportive and just downright rude. I’m not really one to react to such a thing so I let it slide and just move on with my life but the thing I’m always left wondering is, where was your concern when I was sick and unhealthy? Why is it more acceptable to you that I’m 100kg overweight, depressed and miserable than it is to grow some muscle and find confidence within myself?
As the quote goes:
Learning this one lesson has quite possibly been the most powerful lesson of my life thus far. I am a better person when I take care of me. I love more, I help more, I learn more….I give a damn more.
I still struggle to put myself first at times. It’s still a very new thing to me but I can tell you that the difference it makes in ones life is bliss. I’m not saying to be selfish, I’m saying to respect yourself enough to follow what your heart knows to be right. Even if it means upsetting a few people along the way. Because those people that are getting upset at you for finally doing what makes you happy? They’re the people who are the most unhappy within themselves. Pay no attention to them. Be so happy that when encountering their negativity it doesn’t dull your shine, it only helps you to realise just how bright and beautiful you really are.
It’s ok to be happy. xx
Remember how I wanted to get to 50 push ups? I’m almost there! I’m at 45 a set now. I’m pretty sure I can nail the 50 very very soon.
Maybe one day I can attempt this…
Pfft, yeah right!
