Okay, tell me if you’ve heard this one. Girl is a runner and a gym rat. She decides to start a blog so she can share all about her adventures and along the way she managed to gain weight instead of maintain or lose. So she loses the weight and shares that on the blog. Then she gains it back and stops blogging. So have you heard of that one before?
My intentions were to be at least 20 lbs lighter by now. But as always I let excuses and a huge dose of laziness take over. It’s like I wanted to pretend it wasn’t THAT bad and if threw on some Spanx maybe no one would notice.
It’s incredibly awful. It’s frustrating and mentally tiring. I have no one to blame except myself.
At this point you may be asking…………what’s your point? Well, a couple of years ago after being called pregnant (when I was not) in a huge way (“Oh good your pregnant, I thought you had just gotten fat!” True story, it was said out loud to me) and I got pissed about it (a rant about it here) I said enough is enough and I gave myself 6 months to lose the weight. Well, here I am again. This time I know that when I lose it I’ll have to continue to fight for it. That’s my point.
Friday’s are weigh in day. I have to count calories, log them in and do the workouts. It truly has to be a lifestyle change. A mindset change as well. It’s not like I don’t know what to do or how to do it.
And also keep in mind that I’m not saying my way is the only way or the right way…..it’s just what works for me.
Till next time……….
