We all have to be accountable for our actions, right?!
In the past I’ve never held myself accountable for anything. Come up with an idea? Did it for less than a week and gave up on it. But, would still think about it on a daily basis and how I should be doing it. How stupid is that? I always chalked it up to “getting to it later” and that I’d “always have time”, but then I’d never do it! This is for anything. Working out, meal planning, refurnishing something, spending less, spending more time doing this or that, writing and blogging more… the list goes on and on.
So it’s about damn time I finally did something with myself, in every category listed above and more. As cliche as it sounds, I don’t want to wake up one day in 10 years, look back and say, “WTF was I thinking?!” I’m in my prime time right now at the young age of 24 and I want to make the most of it. I want to look back and think about all of my accomplishments or at least what I actually tried to accomplish instead of looking back and wondering why I didn’t do anything at all for years.
I’ve come to terms with the fact that I’m not going to be well off with money any time soon, and I’m becoming okay with that. I have a lot of debt I need to knock off and a lot of learning about how to do that successfully while gaining a savings, but in the meantime I figure I can work on one thing: myself, and my body. I haven’t been treating my body well for years (basically throughout college and now 2 years later…) and I think it’s about time I start. I’ve always eaten fairly well but there is definitely room for improvement, and forget exercise! I would when it was convenient, and that’s it. Didn’t have a competitive streak so didn’t play sports in high school, had no motivation to work out in college, and now I’m realizing that I have both of those things. Motivation to have a competitive streak, with myself!
So here I am, trying out Kayla Itsines’ Bikini Body Guide for the… fourth?… time, and I plan on finishing to completion. I’m so inspired by the many posts I see on Instagram of girls completing BBG and treating their bodies right, and I want to be an inspiration as well! An inspiration to treat my body as my “temple” or whatever that saying is.
Today is my second day with BBG and although I’m tired, I’m feeling amazing. It’s crazy what you can do when you really and truly set your mind to it. It’s nice to come home, have dinner in the oven, and bust out 28 minutes of sweaty interval training!
