0004: (first) Steps

image

imageToday is actually my second day on the treadmill. Yesterday was a random dry run on the (new) machine (from my boyfriend’s mother). So after contemplating small daily goals, this first week is about reminding my body what it’s like to actually MOVE. I can do weights for days but all I do is bulk up. I need to slim down in a natural way. It won’t happen overnight. Or in a month. Now I’m tracking the changes. See the starting self photo on Instagram here.

My biggest challenge is feeling like I’m doing it right. I’ve grown up with a problem of perfectionism- if it’s not prepped just right, I can’t do it. I need these conditions so I won’t fail. But now I am just going to do what feels right in the moment. I plan on failing a lot and seeing where it takes me. At the very least, I began to take a step into a direction.

Let’s see where the journey takes me!
