Back again. 5th attempt?

Friday, September 20, 2013

I have been slacking off. It's down to the last thirty pounds, and I need to really focus on sticking to my goals. I am going to work out six days a week. I will work out for 90 minutes, and I will not eat more than 1700 calories per day. I will keep track of my food, drink more water, and try to eat more fruits and vegetables. I am so sick of being overweight and feeling like a victim. I am sick of eating foods that are super unhealthy and hating myself.

I want to be proud of myself and proud of my body. I can do this.

Getting back on track

Tuesday, May 22, 2012

I've kept up with the plan to work out every day for 17 days straight! Plus this week, I've decided to start following the SparkFitness planned meals. Because after two weeks of working out everyday and not losing any weight, I decided to change my eating habits to something even healthier.

With the preplanned meals, they are smaller portions and more nutritious. Also, they make me free guilt-free when I eat, and it gives me a lot of healthy options so I never feel like I have nothing to eat.

I'm really liking this new food plan right now. Plus, I've went down from 162 (which I have been for over two weeks) to 159.6! And it's definitely thanks to my new eating habits, and maybe the extra amount of sleep I got last night.

Speaking of which, I better go to sleep now. I can't wait to reach my mini-goal of weighing 150! Then, it will be just 20lbs to lose before the end of the year.


Aiming for 130

Wednesday, May 09, 2012

If I had stayed on track, I should be 159 right now. But I went to Philly for a 5-day weekend to visit my best friend and her baby. And ate out a bunch. And didn't work out at all. Except for all of the walking. We walked so much that I refused to do anything the last day because my feet and legs were killing me.

Now I'm at 162, and my goal is to get to 130 by Dec. 27. I've decided to work out every day for 60 minutes, just to see if I can keep a promise to myself. Only have gone 4 days so far, but I haven't missed a day yet. I am aiming for 365 days straight.

Also, I really want to cut down how much we eat out. Time to eat at home. I can't afford all this fast food.

Finally, I'm going to be focusing on my core with my strength training. I think that my tummy muscles are my main priority right now.

I think that getting down into the 150's will really help me feel happier.

Time to work out!

I visited my dad this Fourth of July, and found out that he weighs about 10 lbs more than me. Since my dad is 6'2" and I'm 5'5", this really shocked me. I talked to my boyfriend, and we both got a gym membership to Snap Fitness 24/7. Also, we went to Lady Foot Locker and bought two gym shorts and two workout shirts (since none of my old workout clothes fit me). I'm looking forward to buying proper running shoes, but my old tennis shoes should do fine until then.

Now I'm committed to the gym (one I get my key card in the mail), so I should feel more obligated to work out. Also, I just bought a bunch of healthy veggies and fruits, along with some chicken, turkey, shrimp, and tilapia. I am all set.

All I need to do now is eat smaller, healthier portions and work out every day. Starting right now.

I'm going to do my cardio workout before I pass out for the evening. Here's to a healthy day! emoticon


3rd attempt...

Sunday, June 05, 2011

I really need to stick with this lifestyle change. Workout everyday. Eat smaller portions and keep track of what I eat.

No more fast food for every meal. No more skipping workouts.

I need to focus on getting my body back in shape. I've gained 30 lbs this past semester and the extra weight around my tummy is driving me mad. I have a lot less self-confidence than I did last year, and if I want to succeed in my new job, I want to feel the best about myself as I possibly can.

Here's to a healthy and happy summer! emoticon
