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. 😊

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. 

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 🙂!

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 :)

The 2006/2016 trend has really got me looking at my long term journey and I could not be more grateful. I don’t look at pictures from back then. I haven’t looked at them in years.

Left: 16 years old, headed home from a trip to Washington DC, had just picked up a tennis racquet for the first time in my life.

Right: 26 years old, headed to Ben’s office Christmas party this past week, just finished with my yoga workout for the day.
