, KEEP moving forward!

The past.... If only I can change the past, I will definitely do so..so that I might be happier, sexier ( haha) and enjoying life better..... That was my state of mind months ago and I know some of you might have the same mindset. The single most important reason why people cannot move on and be happy is that they keep thinking about their past, regretting it and wasting their time thinking about what their lives could have been if only... I, personally have regrets, if only I accepted that job offer, if only I didn't stop going into the gym, if only I used my money wisely... The never ending list goes on. But you know what the reason there's new year, new day, new week, new month is because God is always giving as chanceS (yes with s)to have another shot in life, to better ourselves, not to live in regrets.

To live in regret is the worst way you can live your life, it makes you bitter, unhappy, sad, frustrated,Vexatious, Sour, and the worst it entraps you in the past, you can not move on. I've been there, done that so I know the feeling and I tell you It is Repugnant with the capital R. Since then I promised myself I will not live in regret anymore. I will start this new year right, I will set reasonable goals, I will not let anything hold me back from doing what makes me happy, I will be accountable for my every decision so When this year ends I will not be crying over spilled milk again.

I am looking forward to another great year but this time it will be greater for I know I will not live In regret anymore . Let's celebrate life without regret.

    I have decided to change my past and it is possible to change the past. How you ask?...Think about today where will it be when you wake up tomorrow? In the past. If you start changing today you will eventually change the past. People think of the past as a long time ago but they forget about the more recent past. Yes, for a lot of years I made bad choices. But, for the last year I have made better ones, and continue to change for the better. I am changing my past today. You can change your past too! emoticon

When nothing seems to be changing.....

Tuesday, December 11, 2012

I weighed myself today and was disappointed cause I lost not even a pound. You see on the first week i lost 6 pounds. And the next two weeks I lost absolutely nothing.im working hard and eating as clean as possible so I have a reason to be disappointed, no eh? I'm on the verge of giving up ,eew right? luckily I stumbled upon sparkpeople and read several blogs. HeRe are several things that I've learned :

1. The scale is not the only determinant of success. This is so true, I may not have lost a single pound today but hey I am definitely stronger now. I can do 10 pushups now, I can't even do one when I started 3 weeks ago. I have better posture too, credits to Pilates. So you see success does not always come in numbers.

2. determination is not..... It's not when you do 10 pushups fast and easy, it's when you keep pushing when you can't even do one with proper form, it's not when you enjoy walking/running outside while people are watching, it's when it seems you'll die of shame when people sees your fatness but you keep running/walking anyway. It's not when you naturally hate fatty foods, it's when you try hard to avoid it. You see determination is not when you do things easily, its when things are hard but you keep doing them anyway.

3. Keep doing it. This is a reminder to myself that I have to keep exercising though I may not be seeing scale results. It is better than just sitting in the couch the whole day and eating junks. I have to keep pushing and I know in the end I will reap the harvest If I do not lose heart.

Let's do this!

    Don't be too hard on yourself! I found out I wasn't losing because I wasn't eating enough. Seriously. You read that correctly! I had to eat more to lose. I am training for the 5 k Your Way walk/jog. When i added that to my schedule of 3 cardio days( the 5k took the place of my walking routine.), 2 strength days and 3 yoga days, I stopped losing. Make sure you get a good grip on what your calorie needs are. I went from 1400 to 1800 calories a day. Also, if you are just beginning strength work, you can hold quite a bit of water while your muscles repair and build. Try drinking green tea. It really does help release fat.

It is what I use. I am NOT affiliated in any way, shape or form. lol

    You appear to have things figured out - now just go for it ! My catch phrase is "Be a Nike" in other words "Just do it"! We all believe in you. Have a great week and keep up the determination and the success will follow.

    Doing good!! Don't be too hard on yourself. You need to remember that you didn't "put it on" all in one day....and it's surely not coming off in one day....

I don't mind that I've only lost 17 pound since May! At least I've lost 17 pounds since May!! It's all in your perspective.

Keep on keeping on!!

Taking the road less traveled to a fitter and healthier you.

Friday, December 07, 2012

I'm on my first day of sparking and I have to tell you it's aaaaamazzzing! I finally got that much needed support from different people and it's making this journey a lot more fun and worth continuing.

According to statistics the population of the world has numbered 6.9 billion as of 2011. And among those people, 1 billion are considered Overweight, 5 percent of which are obese and 14 percent are overweight (BMI of 25-29.9 ). And yes you and me belong to that number, ouch. emoticon I was thinking how many of that 1 billion people are LOSING it, both the patience and the weight, just kidding, just the weight I mean. in my opinion less than one third of the overweight population are making the change .But you know what we are lucky because we are part of the less than third who are making the change.

For some losing weight has been tried and found hard, but for others It has been found hard and left untried. The path to weight loss is the path less traveled because as I said it has been found hard and left untried. There's no easy way out. We didn't put this weight in just a blink of an eye so we can't expect to lose tons of it easily. Besides "nothing of great worth comes easy" and easy come easy go so it's better to take it slowly but surely right?

So what I'm just trying to say is by starting this journey we are choosing the path less traveled and this path will surely get us to where we want to go. It is not going to be easy oh no but it is doable and we can do it guys !

It doesnt come naturally... will, determination

Thursday, December 06, 2012

emoticon Its my first time blogging and since I'm new here I just want to share to you that the will and determination to succeed doesn't come naturally be it in your life or your weight loss journey. It is a matter of choice. I was not born endowed with such lofty will and determination, nobody was. Will and determination is a decision you have to make. YOU choose to will something, YOU choose to be determined at something. By starting this weight loss journey , we made the better choice. lets get started and kick some butt! cheers people! emoticon
