I’ve been spending a lot of time in my own head recently, and let me tell you… sometimes my inner self can be a real bitch.
Inner self Chelsea has some big issues. especially with the scale. She thinks about ways to cheat the scale (skipping meals, all the laxatives, liquid diets, etc.) not one of those cheats are healthy. She also takes things people say and makes real life Chelsea hear them in a different way. For example, when someone compliments me on how much better I look, inner self chelsea makes me interpret it as “well damn, if they think THIS looks good, I must have looked terrible before.”
Another example, yesterday I was putting on a little makeup and my little dude walked in, took one look at me and said “whoa! What happen to you face?!” Ummmmmm I thought I looked pretty, but inner self chelsea reared her ugly head and told me that even my toddler can see my imperfections.
Yeah… inner self Chelsea is nuts. She needs someone to knock her senseless.
I am officially down 18lbs (as of yesterday)! I’m super pumped about that! I have made the decision that my bee-otch of a scale is going to be put far far away after this weight loss challenge ends on Monday. I get fixated on the number and I lose sight of my overall goal, health and happiness (and that DGB duh!). 💃💃
When I take a step back and think about how far I’ve come in these 6 weeks I can tell that I’m a better version of me. I’m getting toned, my clothes fit differently, my butt is sitting an inch or two higher than it used to (you’re welcome for all those squats, B 😘), I walk faster, and I have way more energy than I used to! This has been a positive change for me.
Now I just need to get better at the whole meal prep thing and I can really adopt this as a lifestyle change.
You guys have no idea how much your encouraging words and compliments mean to me. Please don’t stop because you’re afraid inner self Chelsea is going to eff everything up. She’s dumb and has been silenced for the time being!
I’m excited to see where I’ll be in the coming months and I can’t wait to show y’all my DGB!
I got this! We got this! Eff you inner self! Real life Chelsea is stronger than you!
Thanks again for everything, y’all! You da best!
