I’m actually so proud of myself right now. I had amazing progress for 4 weeks, and no progress for about 6, but I didn’t quit. That, too, is progress. I’m not caving in and stopping like I normally would. I’ve finally become dedicated to this, and nothing is going to get in my way this time. Regardless of what the scale says, I’ve changed, and my body is changing in ways that aren’t measured by a scale. I can do this.
I was stuck at 153/154lbs for over a month and today I weighed in at 151lbs! I unintentionally had to take a week off of working out due to my crazy schedule and it turns out that break helped me out! I think my body is finally ready to start dropping pounds again. Summer body, I’m coming for you!
I haven’t been to the gym in 6 days and it feels like forever. My schedule has been jam packed all week, so making it to the gym has been nearly impossible. I’ve been moving around nonstop though, so at least I haven’t just been sitting around!
It’s gonna feel soo good to get back into my normal schedule. Maybe taking this break won’t be a such a bad thing, my body might have needed it and that’s why I haven’t been losing weight. Either way, I need to kick it into high gear!
Push yourself further.
I haven’t been to the gym since Tuesday. Not because I don’t want to go, but because I haven’t been able to. This morning, I can go if I want to, but I’m working 2-8:30. Any other weekend I’d suck it up and get going this morning, but I’ve actually been non-stop busy since Wednesday.
Wednesday: School 1-3, computer practice test and exam 3-5, went to my friend’s house 5:30-6:30, went shopping 7-8, tanned, went home to drop off my stuff, then went out for my roommates birthday.
Thursday: Got up, got ready, rushed downtown to find gift bags and tissue paper at shoppers, waited in a line 12-4:30, went to Odd Future’s pop up shop<3, went home to get ready, then Odd Future concert.
Friday: Worked 10-6 at my internship then volunteered for a fashion show 6:30-10:30.
My days have actually been jam packed the past 3 days and I haven’t been able to go. I feel like I’m making excuses but I’ve been running on barely any sleep and my body is soso sore from the concert.
I DO want to go and I WON’T give up, but this morning all I want to do is sleep in a bit more before I go to work. I’m exhausted. If I feel better later tonight I might go for a jog outside, just to get some exercise in. I haven’t taken a break this long from the gym since January and it feels soo weird. Bad weeks are bound to happen though right? *sigh*
Hey guys! I needed athletic-wear fabric samples for a school project and asked a bunch of stores on Etsy to send me samples.
http://www.etsy.com/people/GiMeYoga agreed to send me samples free of any postage charges and have asked me to spread the word of their store in exchange instead.
Please take a look at their store, they sell whimsical handmade yoga-wear that you might like!
I didn’t run for too long because I didn’t want the cold wind to hurt my lungs/get a cold so I just went straight down my street until a dead end then came back. It felt super short so I google mapped it and it was 1km each way, so I ran 2km, which is how much I used to run, but I definitely ran it much faster than I used to and wasn’t dying at the end!
This also proved to myself that I AM improving and I AM changing. Before, after a bad weekend, I’d give up, eat more, and quit all together. The gym may be closed, but I’m working out anyway. I may have eaten unhealthy, but I will work it off. I may mess up, but I will always find a way around it and make it better. This IS my time and I WILL achieve my goals.
