Just to clarify there are 21 WORKOUTS between these pictures, not literal days. There are like 26-28 actual days I think.
And I think a 4lb difference?? Maybe 3lb??? Something like that. What gets me is that today (day 70) I’m actually really bloated.
I’m starting to rely more and more on photos because after dropping the first 22lbs my weightloss has slowed a LOT. BUT CLEARLY I KEEP CHANGING SO SUCK IT BITCH ASS SCALE.
I’ve had some people ask me what I do. I work out almost every single day. If I really need a rest day I’ll take it- and I’ve been taking pretty much one a week since school started back up. But working out every single day doesn’t work for everyone. I do it because I love it and my body is loving it.
Nutrition? I don’t cut calories. I did my first month, but now that I’ve exchanged a couple pounds of fat for muscle I /NEED/ my calories even if I’m losing fat. I eat 2,000+ calories every day. 90% healthy. I love it. I’m never hungry. My body is like thank you thank you thank you. And it’s burning like a hot furnace.
Strong is sexy, strong is powerful. 💕

June goals

May was a pretty good month, I started my weight loss journey for what feels like the billionth time, and this blog has kept me motivated and on track. I’ve had a few rough days, I’ve definitely struggled with not being confident and being discouraged, I’ve missed a few days, but I started and I’ve kept with it for almost a month. 

I’ve noticed I haven’t been the best at keeping track of my calories, or meals, and when I eat/when I should eat next, so that is definitely a problem. I also don’t go to the gym as much as I should, I only go about 3-4 times a week, which I need to bump up. I also should be trying to start lifting or weight training again. With that, I’ve decided to make a list of June goals so I don’t mess up any progress I’ve been making.. 

June Goals: 

  • start counting my macros on MyFitnessPal again
  • cardio at least 4x a week 
  • start weight training at least 1x a week 
  • make sure to eat 3x a day 
  • make breakfast instead of grabbing a protein bar/granola bar 

LETS DO THIS! 

wow i wrote this super happy post and somewhere between hitting post and uploading it to tumblr, it got lost. typical. 🙄

anyway, i’ve been tracking what i eat because i was in a bad rut of overeating and eating when i was bored, and i’ve lost almost 10 pounds in almost 2 months and i’m really proud of myself. it’ll probably take another 2 months to lose a more stubborn 5, but i’ve been logging on Myfitnesspal for 58 days straight and i will continue to do so. and continue to make healthy conscious choices about what my body needs vs the poor habits i’m working on breaking. 😊

Happy 4th of July! 🇺🇸 

My mom and my sister came to visit Zach and I for the day! Mom made us dinner and I have to say… it was delicious. Had some chicken with couscous and homegrown green beans, with a side salad. 

I decided to take a progress photo. On the left is me at 331lbs (the day my family started our challenge), and the right is me at 289.6 (today, 3 months later)!

I have reached my first goal of a 40lb loss! My second goal is another 40lbs, bringing me down to an 80lb loss.

My ultimate goal weight is 165. So, at this moment, I am ¼th of the way there 🙂!

🚨 I’m trying to eat healthier and include more foods in my diet that support healthy hair and skin 🚨

If anyone has similar goals and advice I’d love to talk! Right now I’m trying to eat plenty of:

Quinoa
Almonds
Berries
Leafy greens
Sweet potato
Oatmeal
Peppers

And drink plenty of water. Any foods you would definitely include in a skin + hair diet?

Also MY DASH IS SERIOUSLY DEAD. What tags are y'all using for personal fitblr focused blogs?
