Week 2


I don't know why I wasn't smiling in this picture, but regardless I am on week 2 of my new workout plan and eating right and it's going so great!


It's amazing how quickly you can get back into a great grind once your head is in it and your routine is there. This is why I have always said you need to 'want it' - if you aren't it will just continue to be the motions and you won't be pushing yourself.

So something this past weekend that happened was I went out. I'm usually a home body who I like people to come to me, haha and hang out at my house. But I lined a sitter up and all that jazz and went out. It never fails and especially in bigger settings like that - people will call me the 'Boflex girl' and want to ask a bunch of questions. Which, trust me, I love talking about that experience and how amazing the machine really is and how much I loved all the people.


What isn't my favourite is I'm human..so I worry. I'll start to think, 'I wonder if they think I look the same as I did in the commercial' but this weekend I started to 'care-less' .


The truth is I think self worth is so important to your happiness and to your success. And if your mind is always filled with worries of how other people may judge your body or the way you look, then are you really happy can you really enjoy it?

I think in a world filled of social media and filters and best angles, we all know how easily the idea of what someone should look like is conceived. And in the end all that matters is how you feel and your happiness - The truth is I always try to be super real, sure I'm human so I have those worries and I like pictures where I don't think I look awful. I'll work out harder if I have an appearance or event coming up and after I'll celebrate and enjoy things more after and I think that's life, but I will never pretend to have a six pack and be a fitness model. Would I love to.. Sure and I want to work harder now to see where I can get, but I won't sacrifice 'living' and happiness to get there. Let's be serious, I'm the girl working out with a fries cell phone case haha.



So here's to happiness, here's to a great week and my goodness here's hoping the sun comes out- I'm over the rain Chandell
