Today officially marks the start of Week 2 of eating clean.
I decided on some short term goals today:
I want to get to week 12!
I think keeping track of my weeks again, with this in mind, will really help me stay on track and stay motivated.
4 weeks is not that far off, and the first week was really pretty easy, breezy. I feel so much better mentally and I believe also a bit better physically, so I should have no problem getting to 4 weeks.
8 weeks is a little daunting right now, but having people close to me start to notice a difference is really appealing.
12 weeks feels like forever, but it’s truly not that far away, especially considering that my wedding is in just 38 weeks.
Also, getting to a place where everyone can notice a difference would be a huge motivation for me. I’m also thinking that, after 12 weeks of eating clean, It will have become a habit by that point. It should be my routine, and provide confirmation that I can keep doing this- not just until the wedding, but for the rest of my life.
As I’ve mentioned in other posts, this has become less about just the wedding and fitting a dress (though that is still important!) and more about my overall health.
I am so happy to have finally made changes that I truly feel I can stick with long term. I’m also happy to report that those include smarter choices on my part and that I’m eating both fruits and veggies now and really focusing on a balanced and nutritious lifestyle.
I feel so proud of myself already, and I can’t wait to start taking progress pics again and to see my transformation.
12 weeks will be here before I know it!
