The Last Summer.

Hi, everyone! It has been quite awhile since my last post, but I’m finally back. I hope all of you are doing well. 

Although I am still not at a point where daily posts can resume, the time has definitely come for me to share some of the newer developments in my weight loss journey. The last few weeks have been interesting on so many different levels, and I’ve learned a lot.

I Couldn’t Believe My Eyes.

Happy Friday, everyone! 🙂

For today’s post, I am finally going to share the good news that I’ve been holding back. Despite meaning to talk about this as early as last week, other things kept popping up, pushing today’s announcement to the back of the bus.

Drumroll please… 🥁🎶😬

Going Plant-Based: Am I Surviving So Far?

Before we jump into today’s topic of discussion, can I just point out the absurdity of it being 10:00 at night, yet 90 degrees Fahrenheit?! This is totally unacceptable. 🥵

Anyway…

Today, I thought I would drop in and provide a little update on how my recent diet changes have been going.

I Can See The Light: A Month Two Review + A Thank You!

Now that I have embarked on the third month of my weight loss journey, it is time to take a look at the last 30 days. 

For anyone who is trying to lose weight or meet a particular fitness goal, I highly recommend keeping notes about your physical progress, as well as your mental/emotional ups and downs as you go along.

Although pictures of bodily changes may speak louder than words, nothing can replace the benefits of being able to go back and trace your various changes over time. After all, improving your health and transforming your body is just as much a mental feat as a physical one.

Doin’ It For: The Fashion

In the last post of this series, I shared a desire to celebrate my future thinner body by taking a trip to the French Riviera. But as you could have guessed, a sun-kissed vacay isn’t the only reason that I wish to lose weight.

Today, I am going to share another source of motivation for me during this weight loss journey, and boy oh boy, is it a big one.

Fashion.

But I Thought The Fat Would Just Go Away!

For someone who has essentially been obsessed with losing weight since childhood, I’m surprised by how much I still need to learn about the actual mechanics of weight loss.

I mean, sure– I know about weight loss. Aside from everything I learned in school, I’ve spent years upon years absorbing all kinds of information about the subject. However, it seems as though there was one critical tidbit I completely glossed over: Where fat goes when we lose weight.

It seems as though I learned the answer to this question once upon a time, but had long since forgotten it. Well, I got a wakeup call today, and you know what? I’m absolutely mortified. 😳

In Over My Head.

This weight loss journey often has me wondering, “What am I even doing?”

You try to move more and sit less.

You eat more of the “right” foods whilst pretending that you don’t want the “wrong” ones.

Then you wait for the results.

And you wait.

And you wait.

And… you wait some more. 😴 ⏰

Boo!! LOL.

I Could Hardly Breathe– It Was Awesome!

From time to time, it can be nice to take a stroll down memory lane. It allows you to recount happy memories, learn from past mistakes, and look at your current position in life through a totally different lens.

Lately, I have been spending quite a bit of time trying to remember my past successes in weight loss. I’m not even going to lie though– I haven’t always lost weight the healthy or “right” way. There are definitely things I’ve previously tried that yielded the results I’m currently aiming for, but these are not methods that I’m willing to try again. After all, if they had actually been healthy and sustainable, I wouldn’t be in this position right now.

Mistakes aside, there have been many weight loss tools and tricks that were healthy, effective, and worth repeating. Now it is simply a matter of remembering what those specific things might have been. 🤔

Today, I am going to share one of my all-time favorite workout series and fill you in on how yesterday’s happy reunion actually panned out.

A Not So Simple Fear: Shorts

Everyone has something they are afraid of:

Snakes.

Heights.

Spiders.

Death.

When it comes to body image, I have many deep-seated fears. As I go through my day to day life and these insecurities are brought to mind, I would like to share them with you. I think it would be interesting to take a look at these fears more closely, and see if anyone else out there feels the same way.

Today, I would like to make it known that I am afraid of wearing shorts in public.

Barely There, Don’t Care

Before I jump into anything else, I’m so sorry for missing my last two posts!

But you know how you wake up one day and you have all of these wonderful plans, only to end the day wondering, “What the heck just happened?” Well, that is exactly how my weekend went.

One minute, I was trying to binge watch Homecoming (the Julia Roberts show on Amazon, not the Beyonce doc… although I do have to watch that still), and the next minute everything went haywire. *Sigh*

Never mind all of that though! I’m back and everything is all sorted, so there shouldn’t be anymore interruptions to our normal programming. 🙂
