Today is my birthday. At 08:35am I will officially be 30 years old. Thirty years on this Earth.
Sometimes I feel like I haven’t accomplished much.
Things have taken twists and turns, ups and downs. I have had good times and bad times, made good decisions and made some bad ones – but everything that has happened has made me who I am today.
Then I feel like I have accomplished a lot.
Things may not be how I envisioned them growing up. My life certainly took a different path, but it has in no way been any less fulfilling.
I have a wonderful husband, four beautiful, healthy children, good friends and family.
Last year I wrote a list of goals of things that I wanted to accomplish by the time I turn 30.
Here were my goals:
• I want to have lost 2st
• I want to be writing more freelance
• I hope to start a novel.
I feel slightly disappointed that I haven’t quite reached them.
- I haven’t lost 2st – although I have lost one stone, so I am halfway there.
- I’m not really writing more freelance, but I do have a job in Marketing which I love.
- I started a novel…. kind of!
I think the biggest change to my life this year though has to be my fitness and the way I look at myself.
I have never been confident in my skin. Always been one to shy away and stay in the background. Always thinking I was fat, ugly and not a very nice person.
I guess that comes from years of negativity being thrown at you.
I am slowly starting to learn that I am not those things.
I was fed up with my weight, so I did something about it. I joined a gym.
When I first started going I struggled. Going alone is hard – but the more you go, the easier it gets – and it helps having some great tunes blasting in your ears too!
I have really upped my game the past week and these are my last two workouts:
I don’t feel like I have made much of a difference to my body shape – but I am feeling better and more confident in myself, and that’s the main thing right?
So, although I am worried about turning Thirty and entering a whole new decade of my life. At least I know that I will be Fab, Fit and Thirty!
