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.
