Motivation to Work out!

When you workout don’t be lazy. Go in hard and hard. Do the best that you can do but at your comfort. Remember, its your body and only you can change it. While those others are doing whats fine with them, do whats fine and good for you. Don’t be afraid to take that step.

I Lost 10 LBS, Yay!

work out motivationBut it took 5 months. LOL. So I got on my sisters new scale; mind you I was going by the weight I weighed whenever I visited the doctors office but I don’t have any appointments scheduled currently. I decided to hop on my sister’s scale, something I never do and when I weighed myself it said 220.2 LBS. I said to myself,”It has got to be wrong I haven’t weighed that much naturally since High School”. I hadn’t been dieting at all or exercising so I thought it was very odd. So I weighed myself about 8 more times to see if it would change and it didn’t. So I waited for my sis to weigh herself, since she always announces how her weight. She had just came from the doctors so I knew if her weight from the scale matched what the doctors told her, her weight was then mine was accurate. So she weighed herself, announced how much she weighed and it matched! So I’m proud to announce that I am 220LBS, woot!

That was some great motivation not to mention that same day I just happened to catch on tv abc the show called,”Extreme Weight Loss” with this woman named Meredith Prince and she just so happens to live in my area! My area is hardly EVER on national tv so I said to myself,”If that isn’t God speaking to me then I don’t know what is.” After watching her motivational weight loss and seeing her lose weight in a year. She went from 314 to 155lbs in one year. What an accomplishment! Anyway Im going to take that motivation and USE IT.

I read a long time ago that the hardest part of working out is the first 3 days. Well Im past the 3 days and on my 4th day! Now the challenge is the next quote I read sometimes ago,”It takes 8 weeks for you to notice the difference in your body. 12 weeks for the world to notice.” So I have to give myself 2 months before I really start to notice a difference. I wont say what my plans are or anything but I definitely will be working out more and Im going to keep trying. I want to get down to my desired size 120LBS.

BUT the important thing to remember for me is that I am beautiful no matter what size I am. I am just making an adjustment to my life for the sake of my health and financially (when it comes to clothes, doctors visits). So in the long run if I keep it up I will be in good shape.

Weight Loss Journey…I don’t Know Where to Start

Let me tell you. I have been down this road so many times its ridiculous. I just dont know where to start. I really do not have much time to sit down and think of a plan right now because my courses are so demanding for June. Courses that you would take 5 months with ALL mashed up into one month. Its intense especially since I haven’t taken the classes yet. I would love to start my weight loss journey today or anytime this month but when I do something so drastic I really need to put my ALL into it. Not only that but I really need to sit down and figure out my spending buudget because before I was blowing $30 to $60 left and right and the food I bought I barely Ate all of it or got to it. So if I have time tomorrow or tonight Im going to add a page to my weight loss section called Plan of Action and just list everything I feel I need to work on toward my weight loss journey.

Exercise/Eating Healthy Day 3..

Im just blogging about this so while I am out and about I can come to my blog and read what I plan to do for today…I may or may not make this a habit, we’ll see.

Right now my sister and I are trying to lose weight. We’re both using myfitnesspal and I downloaded insanity for her so I could upload it and she could us it. Right now she is ahead of me in the working out department by an hour and some minutes. We’re both struggling with eating.

Anyway, today I want to plan my meals a head of time even though I don’t know how it is going to workout when it comes to actually eating the food. I have some chicken egg foo yung left over from yesterday so I will eat that last today. I know its not the healthiest choice but Im a work in progress. I’ll cook myself a salmon in the morning and eat it then or later. I’ll eat some yogurt when I get home from work because I know I will be hungry. I dont think they give you any breaks so a snack will have to do that wont keep me from working. I’ll have to find a snack to take to work with me so I will have to stop by the store before I leave class and grab something on my way to wrk…gum included and OFC WATER. I probably will end up eating some baby asparagus too. Hopefully I can follow through with this plan. Since most of my day will be at school and work…It sounds like a good plan and Im going to try to actually stick to it. Then maybe I can squeeze in working out after I get home and finish my math homework.

Eating today:

  • Yogurt
  • Salmon
  • Chicken egg foo yung
  • Baby asparagus
  • Water
  • Stop by store and get a healthy/low calorie snack for work

***Update***

I would also like to say since I began this get fit get healthy thing in…march, I’ve lost 7lbs. You can see it on my progress report I update. So hurray for me but I have about a 90-100lbs to go 🙂

Mini Motivational Workout Tips #2: There Will be Bad Days

Here’s an important fat loss fact that you need to know: More exercise does not necessarily mean more results. Furthermore, it’s completely normal if you don’t feel like going to exercise all the time. “I learned that sometimes you have to drag your ass to the gym, even if you don’t feel like going,” Kim says. “And while the workout may be slow moving and uninspired at first, once you’re there it’s super easy to finish.” As you go through the motions, go in with an open mind knowing there will be good and bad days. Your job is to approach both the same way, and make the best of the situation.
