Work Week Workout! Jan. 29 – Feb. 2

Hey everyone, welcome to the first work week update! (these will start going up Friday night, but I slacked last week)

1-29

Today I had a half cup of almonds, which I’ve recently gotten into. I know, I’m the WORST fitness person, cause I had never had almonds until a guy at work was like YO try them, you’ll like them! And you know what, he was right. They’re so good (yay for salt!) and weirdly filling. As someone who can really stuff themselves, how full I can feel on almonds is weird. Alien technology? Maybe.

Side note, should I actually list what I eat. Is that weird? Would people read that and think “huh, this girl is obsessed with herself?” or would it help keep me intentional and on track? Am I thinking about this too much? Who freakin knows. Back to Monday!

Yall. I’m dying for sugar. And I already had a soda! Yes. I had a soda at like…7am. But I’m letting myself finish the cans of soda I had, and then not have anymore! So really the focus is not being wasteful. You’re welcome, Earth!

Week Goals in a video update form! ~1~

Also called: Sunday Intensions (oooooh, ahhhh, an official name!)

Hi everyone! I’m starting something new and intentional, I’m going to be doing a short vlog on Sundays giving a quick update, sharing my goals for that week and doing a weight update as well!

Last night was my 1st one, let me know what you think in the comments down below! I know it’s kind of odd, doing a mixed media sort of blog, but having to do a video feels like just the kick in the ass I need to set goals and actually work for them. Sometimes having a long goal can be harder then just having a goal for that week, because I don’t know about you, but I can push off a weekly goal until all of a sudden it’s  Thursday night and it feels too late to start. Then suddenly its Sunday night, time for a fresh start…but I’m tired and forgot to shower, so maybe Tuesday?

Feeling Faint + Weekend Update

Today is the first day that I’ve truly felt awful with this whole ‘not eating during the day‘ thing. And I still have no regrets…but tell you what, it’s making this Monday hard. I’ve already done one round on the elliptical (burning roughly 100 calories) but my goal was to start doing it twice a day this week. Tell you what though, that is definitely not happening when I feel like this. I already cannot wait to eat, which is no surprise because we all know I’ve been ready to eat since I woke up.

And now for the weekend update!

A bet has been made!

Yall. Its about to go down.

December 1st I made a bet with my mom that I’d lose 55 pounds by August. That’s 243 days to lose it all (as of the start of the bet). Is it a lot of weight to lose? HECK YES.

But you know what, I’m determined. Here’s the thoughts behind it/details:

I need to order my wedding dress by August. I’m going the online route at a trusted Etsy shop and they can make it in 6 weeks with shipping taking 5 days or so. However, its me and I would much rather send in my measurements in July, so that’s the real end date. But talk about motivation, nothing screams LOSE THAT WEIGHT quite like having to measure yourself for your wedding dress. Add on to that how the engagement pictures went…well let’s just say I’m motivated.

Loving Myself

Today I’m reminding myself that even if I didn’t lose any weight this week (which I didn’t), that…that isn’t all that matters. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again:

You are not your weight.

I know that weight is what my blog is semi centered around. But today I was watching an old video with Mama Cass and John Denver with my dad, of a song that I love and sing often, and was just stricken by the beauty that is their voices together. And it hit me: Mama Cass is big, but that’s not who she is. She is her beautiful voice, she is part of the Mama and the Papas. She is a voice of that generation, and a voice that helped change music. I’m sure to her family and friends she is so much more.

Back for a non-emo post!

So last time we talked I was crazy bummed about my weight gain.

And I should’ve told yall: YO, last week, I had lost it again. So even though I’m proud of losing a few pounds, maybe its not that big of a deal either way. I’m gonna go with…its something to be celebrated when it happens on purpose, a happy accident when it happens on…accident, and if you gain it, well, give it a few days of good eating and a few more trips up and down the stairs and you’ll probably be good.

And lets be real, it also super helps that I’m a tater tot. So a few pounds for us bigger people is easier to take off then say, CrossFit Tina over there whose killin it with the 100% muscle and 0% mac n cheese.
