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..
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
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. 😊
Hey Guys, so Ive been slacking a lot, and I am back up to 201 lbs 😢 I am trying hard not to beat myself up too much, but its difficult. I know I have been over eating a lot becuase of my birthday and such, and lost a bit of moyivation to work out
Im going to try and log more often to hold myself more accoubtable
Encouragement would help a lot please
Breakfast today. I’ve always struggled getting myself to eat breakfast considering it was always a meal I skipped, but lately I’ve been finding my breakfast is the best and most enjoyable meal of the day! 🍌🥑🍓 I mixed strawberries, bananas, half a avocado, one mango, one tsp spirulina, cashew milk, and water. I topped it off with some blueberries, roasted coconut, chia seeds, and raw pumpkin seeds. It was seriously fantastic.
Couldn’t do liquid diet all day again. So had liquid for breakfast & lunch. I had 4oz of chicken 0.50 cup of rice, and asparagus for supper. After going 36 hours without solid food it was sooo delicious. My tummy feels so much better. I didn’t want to face the rain so did a little bit of exercise at home :) scale time on Thursday. Nervous.
Here’s a side by side of me in January 2015 and now in June 2017 in the Gray. Unfortunately after a glorious 2 years with the black and white tights I had to throw them out bc they were too see through for the gym 😂
I think I might weigh about 10-15 pounds more now than I did in 2015 but it sure doesn’t look that way thanks to getting some muscles in there 💪🏻💪🏻💪🏻 just keeping myself motivated and hoping I can do the same for you :)
Sometimes you just look at yourself everyday and don’t see any real changes. These were taken about two years apart; left: January 2015 when I weighed 320lbs right: November 2016 when I weighed 275lbs. (I’ve gained a few since then). Baby steps, but I will get there!
