I had a 30inch waist about a week and a half ago, now I’m down to 28!!!
Most recent pic is this last one…. are those hip bones I see?! Of course, it’s only cuz I’m lying down but there was a point in my life where they weren’t even visible laying down. I’m so proud of how far I’ve come :D
Drank a big glass of water right upon waking up.
Did mini ab workout, jogged in place for 2 mins, jumprope for 1, then went on a 30min jog.
Breakfast after my workout: oatmeal with raspberries, strawberries & almonds
Drank lots of water throughout the day.
Late lunch/early dinner: grilled chicken with bellpepper, tomatoes, & spinach leaves.
After dinner snack/dessert: Strawberry banana smoothie from McDonald’s.
I know it may seem like I hardly ate, but I ate when I was hungry, which wasn’t much today.
How much water have you had???
I am so motherfuckn determined, it isn’t even funny. LOWER BELLY POOCH, YOU WILL BE MY BITCH!!! I will do sit-ups until my abs are screaming for mercy and I will run until my legs give out. Cardio & abwork will become my bestfriend for the next few months. I know I was supposed to have this lower belly pooch taken care of before this summer, but fuck it. I don’t care that I fell off the wagon. I can’t beat myself up about it. What’s done is done. The important thing here is that I keep on trying. Even if I fail a hundred times, I have to try a hundred and one times. It’s never too late to do something about the way you look. Never.
Caveman power!!! I’ve discovered a new lifestyle that not only promotes weight loss (rapidly) but healthily!!! I’m so excited to see how my body looks after 6 months of doing this diet that isn’t even really a diet, but a new way to live. It teaches you to grow a strong connection with your food, but not any food, HEALTHY food!! Please, anyone following me who is struggling with their bingeing and are stuck at plataeus in their weight loss should REALLY check this site out!!!!!!
^^^GO GO GO!!!!
Reminding myself of how far I’ve come since I was feeling a bit down today! So much change! Proud of myself :D
I was in the middle of a workout just now and I got soooo fucking frustrated feeling like I wasn’t pushing myself hard enough, then I looked at the chick on the video and how amazing her body is and looked at mine and thought WHY CAN’T I BE THERE ALREADY??!! Then I proceeded to break down in tears and fall on my living room floor crying like a baby. This whole process has been so long, I’ve been at this since April of last year. Almost a year and I still don’t have the body I want. I feel so helpless like no matter how hard I try, that last extra layer of skin I have just won’t go away. That lower belly pooch just won’t fucking disappear so I can have a completely fucking flat stomach. I’m so stressed out and it’s not just my weight loss journey either, I have SOO much on my plate and I need to do so many things, but I just can’t focus on anything these days. My life is at a weird place right now. Times like these are when I just feel like giving in and giving up. Ughhhh.
Just had to vent somewhere quickly, now time to wipe these tears away and finish my workout because even though that tiny voice in my head is telling me to give up, there’s a louder one telling me to keep going.
I got a meal from Chili’s last night at dinner with my boyfriend. I chose an option from their “lighter choices” menu. The meal was so big I ended up saving more than half of it to take home and have for lunch today. I just ate some of it a little bit ago, and I’m full & there’s STILL some left. So now I’m going to eat the rest for dinner tonight. It’s crazy that a meal they expect someone to eat in one sitting lasted me three meals. Restaurants really need to get their portions in check!!
I lost a pound since Tuesday! It’s not much, but its something especially for such a short time span!!
I weighed 145 at my lowest which was probably the beginning of December, then went up to 158 since then because I stopped eating clean and hardly worked out. Since I started 10 minute trainer a week ago, I dropped to 154! Excited to see my weight at the end of week 4!!
