Another run in the books today and a little bit a lifting and biking as well. Had a good lunchtime workout! I have really come to enjoy wearing my Qalo wedding band! Honestly I wear it more than I wear my fancy gold band!

Tonight for dinner I put in a pork roast, sitting on a bed of corn and black beans smothered in green chili!

Hope you all had an absolutely wonderful day! The week is almost over woo hoo!

So is eating late at night bad otherwise you'll gain weight a myth? 'cause sometimes I get so hungry really late at night (like 10-11pm) that I can't sleep but I keep feeling guilty about it when I do eat.

Yes. It’s just another made up rule to make this whole thing seem more difficult than it really is. Eat when you’re hungry and whenever it works for your schedule.

Apparently it’s Tuesday!!!!! Still a ways to go..but look how far I’ve come!! Left Size 24, Right size 16 I’m soooo proud of myself!! May the BEASTMODE continue!

It’s been 10months since I joined the gym and started becoming more active. I changed my eating at the beginning of January last year and while I was doing Tae Bo at home I knew I needed to add actual gym to my Lifestyle Change. It’s been an interesting Journey to say the least.

I’m currently 231lbs (based on my at home scale that idk works, lol down from 291) but it’s amazing how toning and developing muscles can make you look good.

Start a Challenge tonight for 21 Day Fix with the group @sarah2013 has together. With that said. I have been splurging this weekend because I know I am not gonna have anything out of the norm.

Just realized I’ve lost 100lbs so far!!!! It’s been a year. I still have about 60 more lbs to lose to reach my goal weight. I just want to continue to be healthy and happy. Each day I wake up and make food and exercise choices that will only benefit my weight loss journey. It’s not always fun, but it is always the best option for me.

HW: 291 lbs
CW: 191 lbs

Priorities.

Losing weight is not my main priority right now. I’ve literally just realized this.

There have been times in my life (weeks and months at a time) when my main focus really has been forming new habits to lose weight. And it worked. I think that’s really what you have to do sometimes in order to make progress and really figure this whole thing out.

But I keep getting frustrated because I’m ONLY about TWENTY POUNDS away from my ultimate goal. It shouldn’t be that difficult for me to buckle down and get it done. I want to lose 2 pounds a week like I have in the past.

But you know what? I’ve already lost twenty pounds. In fact, I’ve done it TWICE, actually ALMOST THREE TIMES already. And that’s pretty fucking awesome and it took a lot of work.

So sure. I would like to lose around twenty more pounds and/or lean out by decreasing my body fat percentage.

But I would also like to finally land a full time job that pays well. And I want to finally get an apartment with Jake. And I want to get a puppy. And I want to get married in the next two years.

Those are my priorities right now.

I’m not going to stop running or eating well or drinking enough water, because those things make me feel good and are part of my lifestyle now. And I’m not going to use this as an excuse to go back to old habits I’ve already broken.

But I AM going to stop getting frustrated when I don’t see major changes in my body or my weight. I have other things to focus on right now.

I’m 55+ pounds down and that’s pretty fucking awesome. I’m much better off now, when it comes to my health, than I was a year ago. I’m not going to give up. But I need to recognize that I can’t expect to see steady progress when I’m not making weight loss a big priority.

It feels good to have reached this point in my journey.

 Jan 2014 vs Jan 2016. 229 vs 196. It’s not a huge change in weight at all but you can see the difference. I’ve been discovering myself and what I’ve always wanted my life to look like. I was miserable before. I have 2 and half year old daughter that is always on the move and I need to be active and energized enough to keep up with her. I’m doing this for myself and I can only hope that I will continue to see changes. Honor your curves, honor your body and what it’s becoming each step of the way. Small results are better than none. I’m happy with the woman I’m becoming and this journey has been the result of the changes in my outlook on life. @curves-and-coffee
