I’ve been feeling so lazy, bloated and pudgy lately! I’m on my period though (tmi) so that automatically makes me feel worse. I’ve been to the gym less than I’d like to be going, but I’m trying to get out of this funk. I’m sososo motivated to look and feel great this summer so I can be comfortable in the heat for once, so I’d ideally like to lose 10-20lbs within the next 2-3 months. That’s possible, right? I haven’t weighed myself for over 2 weeks but last time I checked, I was down 11lbs since I started in January. Not bad, but I’m really ready to see those numbers start to go down! Sidenote: weight really isn’t a factor to me, but it does feel really nice when I can visually see changes being made on the scale as my body changes. When I get closer to my GW, my weight won’t really be something I care about anymore, but for now, until I get closer to that number, I’m focused on seeing that number drop!
Any tips/recipes/anything to help me out for the next couple months so I can look and feel the best I can this summer?
Just realized how lazy I’ve been the past week. It hasn’t really been by choice though. I gave myself a concussion Wednesday night and I was told by a doctor not to do much physical activity if possible, so I’ve just been to work and school. I’m going to the gym tomorrow (FINALLY) and I think I’ll be fine. I’ve had alcohol and junk food during the past week too, but nothing crazy. I’m ready to kick it into high gear now, I want to shed some weight before the weather gets nicer so I can buy some cute new outfits and show myself off when I visit home! I want this summer to be different.
I’ve been supersupersuper busy so I’ve been sticking to everything as well as I’ve been able to minus a few cheats here and there. No motivation has been lost and I have free nights this week to go hard at the gym :) yay!
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!
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*
