That I haven't lost any weight or inches in almost a month. I'm running late for work this morning but I don't even care, I'm so down and discouraged right now. Please no one ask me what I'm eating or how I'm exercising because for once in my life I really took this thing serious and tracked my food and I've been killing it at the gym, burn no less than 500 cals each session but the avg has been 650-700. So can anyone tell me what could it be, this has me not even wanting to work out the rest of the week, may as well just lay on my ass (since Im not losing weight anyway) and try to start fresh Monday morning.
And I know I shouldn't have done this but I am going out of town this weekend so I wanted to lose some quick weight so I've been doing the 3 day diet, today is the last day and you are supposed to lose up to 10 lbs, well my ass gained 2 lbs, so explain that one too. The only thing I can think of is that because I know better (that fad dieting is the worse) that's definitely why I'm not seeing any results this week. And to be truthful since I did start that crap I'm gonna finish it today and I'm gonna write the author of that stupid diet and tell them that this is a hoax and that this crap doesn't work. I may as well have eaten big macs and fries the last 2 days the way I look at it.
Well that's all, let me finish getting ready, please guys take it easy on me lol (I'm really crying inside though!)

Even though I probably gained from my bad choices this weekend. I'm finally getting to a point where I tell myself IT'S OK. I'm not going to be perfect every day. I feel like things are starting to happen and click for me. Not all the way their, but halfway. And my no means was it easy, its still tough, I work hard in the gym, sweat, blood, and even have shed tears, I think they were tears of joy and triumph though, I'm so proud of myself. This is the longest that I've ever stuck with anything! Keep cheering for me and motivating me, and sending your awesome words of encouragement!

So I think I've hit my first plateau, for some reason I didn't think I would hit it at 186, being that I have so much more weight to lose. I figured somewhere around 150 or so that would happen. So what do I do now, my time is extremely limited, Im in school full time, I'm a single mother to an 8 month old, and work full time. Just all around tired. I do work out Mon - Fri for 45-60 minutes. Since I started working out 8 weeks ago, I started on the elliptical and I'm afraid that is the problem, becuase that is the majority of my workout. I thank the elliptical for helping me lose 17 lbs, but I think I need to befriend the stairmaster (which I super afraid of) and perhaps the treadmill. I'm also going to start planning my meals better for the week ahead. Yesterday I bought Jillian Michaels 30 day shred and I was super excited to start my first workout, but I lost the remote to my dvd, so I will be going out to buy a universal remote today. I was so mad, couldn't even toggle to the workout! lol! But at least I did burn 500 calories earlier at the gym that day. So spark friends, any suggestions on how to overcome this plateau, yes I know its a lifestyle change, and that I shouldn't solely rely on the scale. I'm working on doing better with that. I really need to focus some more attention on strength training as well as the cardio...hmm not enough hours in the day. Well wish me luck with the 30 day shred today!

As September quickly came, I sat back and thought about how the year has flown by and the saying that 'time waits for no one' is so true. I often listen to Donald Lawrence's song Encourage Yourself while I'm working out. That song is so powerful and motivational. This song is so powerful..life and death is in the pwer of the tongue we have to speak the word and believe that God will never leave or forsake us. Everything we go through may just to help someone else I pray that everyone get encourage by this song in time of need.
I look at my struggle with my weight loss and constantly encouraging myself even when others don't. I refuse to let the devil when and keep control over my life. What are some songs that keep you motivated and pushing along?
Here are a few of my other favorites:
Yolanda Adams - Step Aside
Kirk Franklin - This is it
Mary Mary - Heaven, Get up, Shackles, God in Me and many many more.
Thanks for reading :)
