Back down to 217.6 this morning. I have been hovering around the 220/221 mark for the last month, so seeing 217.6 made me ecstatic!
I've had my head back in the game all week, and making pretty decent choices. I'm sure in other people's eyes they could be better, but I have to be ok with doing the best I can with what I have at the time. I'm tired of trying to live up to everyone else's standards.
On the MyFitnessPal and Facebook communities there are so many different opinions on what the "best" diet or lifestyle choice is. Low Carb, Low Cal, Clean Eating, Raw, Vegan, Low Fat, and the list goes on.
To be quite honest, my goal is just to live MY OWN VERSION of a balanced life. One that doesn't eliminate certain foods, or label them good or bad, but where I have less of some (baked goods especially), and more of others (fruits, veggies, lean proteins). I want to exercise because I like how is makes me feel. I want to set fitness goals and achieve them and in the process feel happy and confident in my own body.
From now on I am re-focussing on finding my version of balance and moving forward in my lifestyle. I am going to try to let go of what I think other people will agree with and do my own thing.
