I’ve heard it said many times, to become someone you want to become, you have to act like you’re already it. “Dress for the job you want versus the job you have,” is a perfect example. The one thing I have always aspired to be was healthy and fit. I have always wanted to be the strong, older women with defined arms and abs who took her health and fitness seriously. To not be the middle aged woman with the little pooch belly. There is nothing wrong with being the middle aged woman with the little pooch. In fact, I am her, right now. However, I have always wanted to be the fit mom. The healthy mom.
I’ve always been athletic. I’ve always been curvy and a little thicker than other woman and I am ok with that too. I love my strength. Its carried me through some really tough stuff. I want to be my best self though. My version of my best self. To make it happen, I need to show up as her now to fully become her. Just like I dress for the job I want versus the one I have now. I just turned 48 in June. If not now, when.
To help me become my best self and make my vision a reality, I am going to repurpose this blog. I am going to write about ways I am working on me. My fitness, my food choices, my mental health, my spiritual side and my financial goals. I will talk about what I’m learning along the way. I’ve also been running consistently for four months now so expect some running posts too.
Please comment and give me some feedback. I would love to have some buddies along the way. Thanks in advance.
