I love the first of the month. So many plans, so many goals. Optimism, motivation, and determination seem to reach their peak on this day...until the 2nd when we realize it's just another month, the same as the last. Same temptations, same excuses. But not this time. This time everything changes. This time we're going to do it.
For the first time in my life I'm going to be living alone, and it could really go either way. It could be used as an excuse to binge and spiral into a depression of self-hatred...or it could be the time I change my life. There is no excuse not to go to the gym when there is no one to come home to, no excuse to buy junk food when there is no one to buy it for. So why not? Why not make this the happiest 4 months of my life? By summer I could be 115. I could be slipping into a pair of size 2 jeans in a mere 4 months. So what's stopping me? What stops anyone from reaching their goals? Nothing. Their is absolutely nothing stopping me from reaching my goals except myself. I'm not going to keep myself from success any longer. I'm not going to let my insecurities stop me from even trying. I can do this. We can do this. So, why not?
- Go to the gym at least 3 times per week
- Don't buy any junk food, if it's not in the house you can't eat it
- Track my calories everyday
- Put pictures of my idols on the fridge
- Lose 40 lbs in the 4 months my boyfriend is gone
- Get a part time job so I can improve my resume and buy new clothes for my new body
- Get at least an A in all my courses
I want this and now is as good a time as any. In 4 months, I can be the person I want to be. I could look in the mirror and love myself, be proud of the body I earned. So I'm gonna do it. I'm going to put myself first and transform my body and my soul. You coming?
