The Great Outdoors

After spending a few days feeling rundown and uninspired, I was glad to wake up Saturday morning with a spring back in my step.ย 

Despite not being back to 100%, I went outside to do some landscaping. The backyard needed some new rocks for the planters, so with the sky clear and the sun blazing, I decided it was as good a day as any to get some much needed fresh air.

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. ๐Ÿ˜ด โฐ

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. ๐Ÿค”

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.

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.
