Transformation to the new you

I think I’ve finally seen the light! It really feels like I am at a turning point in the process of maintaining a healthy and fit lifestyle. A few weeks ago I told you guys that drinking alcohol during the weekend really is my guilty pleasure. At that stage I didn’t feel strong enough yet to quit drinking for a while, so I could boost my weight loss. But I am proud to say that I survived my first weekend without a single drop of alcohol. I have to admit, it was pretty hard though.

Friday I went out for dinner with my boyfriend and I am so used to order a nice glass of red wine. Instead I asked for a  bottle of sparkling water! Ordering it was the hardest part, but once it was on the table I surrendered to the situation. Saturday I was surrounded by friends drinking, while I was sipping my green tea. This also felt really unnatural at first, but I got used to it. The best part of the story is that I felt like a newborn the next day. I woke up at 8 am, killed my workout like a mad woman and felt fresh and energized the rest of the day. So I am going to keep this up until Kingsday (Koningsdag). Perfect timing, right? 😉

Another great thing happened: my trainers at Sixforty offered me 12 free personal training sessions! They told me that they really wanted to help me achieve my goal before summer. They believe in me and see how motivated I am, and this way they want to contribute to overcome my challenge. I was over the moon! It really feels like my hard work finally is paying off. It’s a once in a lifetime opportunity and the last push in the right direction.

I’m damn sure that I am going to nail this thing, once and for all!

Developing the new you might be difficult, but once your transformation continues it gets easier.  And down the road you’ll experience some sort of rush. A feeling that changes thoughts like  “I hope I will succeed this time” into “I am sure I going to nail this thing, once and for all!” So keep up the good work, and surround yourself with people that motivate you! Get yourself a Best Fit Friend Forever and support each other during highs and lows. And most importantly: celebrate your achieved goals! Because if you work hard, you can play hard!

    maar wat anders, dat niet drinken, wen je super snel aan! 🙂 ik was eeuh zeg mar verslaafd van mijn 16e-18e, en raak sinds mijn 18e niet meer aan, heel af en toe heb ik tot 2 jaar terug een glas gehad en had toen steeds neiging om terug te vallen..
    mis het nu niet eens meer.. met verjaardagen zorgen ze altijd speciaal voor mij voor of groene thee of wat anders wat ik normaal drink 🙂
