What an amazing workout it has been these past few weeks. Today marks 3 weeks of doing the gym and omg I have so much more energy. I feel more motivated to do things instead of staying at home doing nothing. I have a whole gym routine from a personal trainer and I have found that the more it hurts the more I know I’m doing something that is working. I haven’t lost much weight, at first it worried me because I was going up in weight but finally I am going back down in weight. I go to the gym with a colleague and its so nice to have someone there to push you to succeed and you do the same to them. We do a 5 minute cardiovascular workout to up our heart rates then we do an exercise for whatever day it is (leg, back,chest and abs and shoulders), then we do 2 minutes on the eliptical or treadmill and then continue that until we do all the machines and cables for that day and we finish off by doing at least 5 minutes of cardio. This has been an amazing change its just incredible I can see the changes when I look in the mirror it’s the best feeling in the world.
Hello everyone! So I have recently joined a local gym and my gosh I am sore. I joined with a colleague and its great to have a partner to workout with. We had a trainer showing us what to do but as of today we are on our own. So yesterday we did legs, I have found out I have muscles where I didn’t know I had muscles. It hurts but it’s a great pain. No pain no gain! I have gone up a couple pounds but my clothes are loser, muscle weighs more than fat does so I hope the more I work out the more my weight will start to go down. It’s a change of lifestyle that’s for sure. We go to the gym daily even if it’s just to walk on the treadmill. I’m excited to start seeing more results.
- So this weekend we did a family trip to niagara falls it was awesome and so fun. Many chances of eatting bad I tried my best to eat healthy, I am also very sick so I did have a few not healthy items like waffles and toast. I did pass on pop or juice and stuck to just water and when I got my steeped tea I only had milk no sugar. So overall I’d say a successful weekend and with all the walking it was amazing!!! What a beautiful site.
So overall I’m still down 25lbs which is amazing it’s been 6 months but I’m still down I don’t know why I’m not losing faster other then not exercising much which I find hard sometimes to get the motivation.. if anyone has any tips to help motivate I’d love to hear them. My stress level has been higher and unfortunately that means I just want sweets, I try and resist the cravings but it doesn’t always work. My biggest cave is kawartha dairy ice cream, omg it is so good!!
My goal before Christmas so just over 2 months is to lose 30 lbs I need to get my ass in gear and start exercising and not going with my cravings.
I have been sick but today when I stepped on the scale it said 258lbs… I have not been at a weight this low in a very long time! I am beyond happy. My life is in a great place and this weight loss is making it even better! I can’t believe how much I have changed in a year. 1 year ago I was so lazy and didn’t want to do anything now I’m getting up and exercising and doing so much more. It really is awesome. I was also really negative but I’ve been trying to be positive and it is just an incredible feeling knowing where I was and where I am.
So overall September has been an awesome month I’m still stuck at 260 but I went to the doctor Tuesday and although my scale hasn’t moved to much I’m still down inches. I’m so happy I notice in my uniform daily how it’s changing! I’m starting to follow more of a low carb high fat diet now to see how it’ll help me with losing. I’m very proud of myself I’ve started taking my lunch to work, usually carrots or celery or mushrooms and hummus and some meat. I hate to cook so this is something I’m happy about lol it’s simple and very fast to make in the morning. I am very very pleased with my success in weight loss so far I am down 22.8lbs total! For someone who ate out a lot and was bery lazy I am a new person and I am loving it! So being in such a good mood I’ve tried new things to help boost my moods even more and I’ve found make up is something that makes me feel good as much as it shouldn’t it just adds to the great feeling I get knowing I’m down in weight.
So this morning I stepped on the scale and I’m down to 261lbs which means I’ve lost 21lbs all together. In just the past week I’ve lost 6lbs again which is just an amazing feeling!! I’ve started taking lunches instead of buying them and I’m never actually hungry I don’t think about food as much either I try and change my train of thought of food comes to mind. I am so happy I’m losing again it’s just an amazing feeling. I need to lose 111lbs more to be where I ideally should be but I’d like to lose 131lbs more.
I find with the more positive attitude more positive things are happening. It is just incredible how just 1 thing can change everything. I am 1 very very happy lady today!!
So overall August was a tough month sadly and I didn’t eat the best so September is the new beginning.😃 I am so excited I’ve gone back to 264 after my weight being stuck at 267. One way I’ve boosted my confidence is by watching Roman Atwood blog he is a really positive person it’s amazing! When I’m positive I find I have so much more confidence it really is awesome. I’ve also found this picture which really helps remind me of what I want for myself.
Sorry it was a long wait between blogs it’s just been a nice and busy week! I love that you enjoy reading this blog. I’ve started eatting more veggies and hummus which I found out I absolutely love!! Sabra Garlic hummus is amazing. I will definitely update more now that I am back on track thank you all very much! Til next time! Bye
So lately I’ve had a lot of stress and I’ve realized that when I’m stressed I eat. I went to the doctors last Tuesday and was given some ideas on how to retrain my brain so I don’t grab crap when I am stressed. So far it’s worked but I have had 1 day I just wanted to eat junk and sadly I allowed myself and I’m still stuck at the same number!!!! So disappointing but I’m trying. I’m going to try and follow more of the low carb high fat diet maybe that will help change the scale. I have an elliptical and I’m going to be using it 3 times a week for 30 mins plus try to get in more walks. August has been a very shitty month with my eatting and it’s very depressing!!! It was my birthday this past Sunday and omg I ate mini donuts just because it was my day, so bad I know but as of today no more donuts no more sugar. I have been finding that with the cpap machine I get sleep and I’m not tired anywhere near as tired as I was before. Now to just get my ass up and go do stuff like I should be but I find that once I come home from work I’m so exhausted that I sit down and then I’m screwed. My energy depletes so fast at that point I don’t know what to do to try and switch it but I need to.
So as you all know I was down to 261lbs… Well just after that I went back up to 268lbs I have no idea why but as of today I’m down to 265.4lbs. So now I need to get off my ass and start exercising more! Also the food choices I have been making aren’t the best at times when I’m out and busy. I have found a healthier option to most fast food, I absolutely love pita pit the food is amazing! There is so many choices to. My mood has not been the best either so that doesn’t help but today is a new day and I am getting back focused on what is most important… Me. I am very excited to do the cauliflower cheese and avacado again that was so delicious. I’m going to start setting goals as to how much I want to lose in a month and starting today I want to lose 10lbs more by sept 8!!!
