Being out of shape is like living in a cluttered home or being in debt. Typically, it happens a little bit at a time and once it’s a problem we struggle to reverse the damage.
I never used to worry about things like eating right or exercising. Growing up I could eat whatever I wanted and my weight always stayed the same. Even after giving birth to my sons in my early twenties, my body still went back to normal pretty quickly.
Apparently as I’ve gotten older, my metabolism has “left the building!” My weight still doesn’t fluctuate very much but the number it stays at has slowly crept higher and higher.
Time to Minimize Yo Butt
I’ve made decisions to get into shape in the past, but I haven’t progressed very far. Perhaps you’ve had similar experiences in your own life.
Well, I’m tired of it! I was having a pep talk with myself the other day. I looked in the mirror and said to myself, “It’s time to Minimize Yo Butt!”
Support & Accountability
Sharing my journey to minimalism has been both beneficial to me by keeping me on track and motivational to others who are on a similar path to simplicity. Hearing from other people who were decluttering has also been incredibly encouraging to me as well.
For the “Minimize Yo Butt” challenge, support and accountability will be a vital piece of the puzzle. I’ve reached out to other friends and bloggers to share helpful articles and keep us all motivated.
You’ll see a lot more posts here at Minimalist at Home and we’ll be checking up on everyone through the new Minimalist at Home Facebook page as well.
