1st day to a new me

Sunday, March 30, 2014

I did my first workout for the first time in a while. It felt pretty good, but I was definitely winded by the end of the workout. I've also been very contentious of what I'm eating. Unfortunately, until I get paid on the 7th I'm stuck eating anything that I have in my apartment (which includes massively expired top ramen). Once I'm paid, I can afford to get some new groceries and healthy food. Until then, I'm going to make due with what I've got and try to pick the healthiest choices possible. I can't wait to see the progress I make between now and June.

Tired of being the fat sister

Saturday, March 29, 2014

I found out recently that my parents are taking my brother, sister, two stepsisters, and me to Vegas in June. I'm excited for the all expenses paid trip, but I'm also terrified. I am the shortest and quite frankly the fattest of all of my siblings. When my mom & step-dad got married Dec 2012, I felt really fat next to everyone else and I don't want to feel that way out by the pool on vacation.

On Monday I start a new chapter in my life as I go back to school, so I am going to use that as a catalyst to get back into a workout routine. Will my body be bikini ready or even able to stand up next to my siblings without me feeling a little down? No, but I'm determined to at least see a little progress so I can find a swimsuit that I will feel good in. I'm hoping that this will also transition into a healthy lifestyle that I can use to bring me down to 150lbs by the time I go to my friend's wedding cruise in the Bahamas in 2015.

I do have a plan this time, so that will at least help. I'm going to t-tapp at least 3 times a week, cut back on the gluten and carbs I consume, and do the SLD every day. Now all I need is a workout buddy. I've got a couple of friends in mind to ask and I'll see if I can convince them to create an account on here. Well, that's all I've got for now but I'll be posting more another time.

    I , too am the "fat sister, but I agree with the post, fat is a state of mind. I hope you can find peace and balance.

    Fat is a state of mind. Comparing yourself to others only leads to being upset. Hope all goes well.

    Be proud and love yourself whatever size you are. There will be those who are taller, thinner, more poised etc as well as shorter, heavier, and more awkward than you.
We all have our own special talents and abilities.
That said I am sure you can achieve your goals.

I didn't use finals as an excuse!

Tuesday, November 15, 2011

I've got two finals tomorrow, one of which I have to know about 250 medical terms for, but I still did my exercise today. Today is the third day in a row that I've t-tapped. Usually somewhere around the third or fourth day I quit, so I think if I can get through tomorrow's exercise and actually workout while I'm out of town visiting the boyfriend then I'll be golden as far as sticking with my program. The nice thing I've noticed about exercising the last 3 days is the next day I'm not as hungry throughout the day. Okay...now for the hard part of my night, mastering those terms.

  


Day 2

Monday, November 14, 2011

I worked out again today. I had a hard time making myself do it, but I did it. Usually when I'm as lacking in motivation as I was today I skip my workout, but I am proud of myself for actually following through today. The other thing I'm lacking motivation to do is study for my finals. I've got 3 on Wednesday and only 1 that I'm worried about, but I know I should start studying now so that I don't have to cram tomorrow. Maybe once I finally get some dinner in me I'll be able to make myself study. Here's hoping :)

  


Turning tomorrow into today

Sunday, November 13, 2011

I've been putting off exercising ever since school started despite noticing that I'm putting weight back on. I finally stopped saying that I'll start tomorrow & did it today. It felt really good to just do a quick 15 min workout while I was waiting for my dinner to cook. It felt really great, & I'm hoping that I can continue to take at least 15 min a day for my health. I've got 8 months till I graduate with my MA certification and I'm hoping that in that time I can be down to a size 8. I have a couple pairs of scrubs and I'm hoping that by the end of the program they will be too big. Now I've just gotta be consistent in my workout & truly dedicate myself to this goal.

    Well done for getting back into it. Sometimes it's the hardest step. Keep up the great work.
