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… 🥁🎶😬

Running With Scissors: Why I’m Suddenly Cutting “Everything” From My Diet.

This is the moment that I’ve been dreading for a really long time.

In my mind, it is the point of no return. I’m either going to go all the way in or accept an early defeat. As tempting as it is to want to forfeit, I simply can’t. 

I don’t know. Maybe I’m too stuck on the images in my head, obstinately charging ahead with overambitious plans and no safety net.

Or… perhaps this is the exact type of attitude that will carry me through. Perhaps my goals aren’t unrealistic and far fetched at all.

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.

Jack & Jill

Jack and Jill went up the hill…

…but today, I didn’t. 

And from the looks of it, I won’t be climbing any hills for awhile.

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.

Something New.

When it comes to losing weight and pursuing better health, it is important to keep things fresh. 

Just as the body acclimates to being put through the same exercises time and time again, our minds often require a change in pace so boredom and the desire to quit is kept at bay.

As someone who is seemingly addicted to change, I was compelled to switch a few things up today.

It is time for something untested.

It is time for something new.

Donut Even Go There

Can I just start off by saying that today’s workout was a bit brutal?

My back hurts.

My abs hurt.

My thighs hurt.

My arms hurt.

My hair even hurts.

I mean, okay. So maybe hair follicles don’t exactly have pain receptors, but if they did, they’d hurt worst of all.

Dear John: It’s Not Me. It’s Most Definitely You.

You know what? Sometimes relationships simply don’t work out. As much as you may try to sweep the inevitable, ugly truth under the rug, all things come to the light eventually.

Today I had to end one of my longest relationships. *sheds fake silent tear*

I’ll be honest: I genuinely didn’t want to do it. Despite seeing all the signs of trouble, I thought we could work things out. I thought things would change… that I could change if only I worked just a bit harder.

Man. We’ve just been through so much together. Where did things go wrong? What pleasure did you get in calling me fat? What could I have possibly done to make you love me more? I only wanted for us to be happy together.

No. No, I’m not going to do it. I’m done playing the blame game, remember? What’s done is done and that’s the end of the story. I did everything I could to be faithful. The best thing to do now is pick myself back up and just move on. I’ll find someone new before I know it.

Stupid, stupid scale.
