Not Feeling So Great :(

Friday, November 12, 2010

I feel awful. I keep trying to go back to my positive, healthy ways...but I keep falling off the wagon. I was doing great all week with my eating habits; I had healthy meals, filled with fresh fruit and veggies. I stayed within my calorie range. I felt good.

So what do I do today? Eat an entire bag of chips. A large one. (Don't calculate those claories...its a horrible experience, lol). And ate at Denny's until I was stuffed.

I just feel gross. I am so afraid I am going to gain everything back that I lost and worked soo hard to achieve..just by making dumb decisions like this. I know that today's mishap won't make me gain my weight back..but if I keep it up I sure will.

I just need something to get my motivation back up. I have it in theory.. I mean, I want the results, and want to keep losing weight..but lately I haven't been wanting to work for it.

I kicked butt this summer..I worked out so hard, ate so good. Now I am back in school.. I have become lazy. I have 2 dance classes this semester, which are great workouts..but only twice a week. And they aren't that intense.

I need to workout more. I need to eat healthier. I need to lose at least 10 more pounds. I need more motivation. I need something....

I feel so great about how I look. I finally can go shopping and be happy because I fit into things I never dreamed I would have in my life.

But, if I love my body so much now.. why do I poison it with junk? Why do I abuse it through neglect? Why put it through this? I should cherish it.

Ugh. I am sure I will feel better tomorrow.. move on from my mistakes today..and get over this major speed bump.

I WILL make a change. I WILL lose the weight that I want to lose. I WILL.

I hope..

    Being slim is a lifestyle not a diet. You are doing fab, just remember you can dance around the house to music or buy a dance dvd and do it at the weekends....anything that will let you have TREATS! They are not failures, just the inevitable TREATS that life will throw your way, just keep positive and add in a few workouts and you'll have more willpower left for a lifetime (not just a week, or a year!) :) Tara x

I'm Back!

Tuesday, November 09, 2010

Man, It has been so long since I have been on here! So much has changed in my life; it is unreal. I am still losing weight, and I look and feel amazing! Over the summer I ended a 4 year relationship, which has been the best decision of my life. I feel refreshed and free!

I decided to come back on here because I have gained a couple of pounds, not much really, but I just need a boost. I want to lose another 10 pounds, so I figured this site will once again come through and help me.

Over the summer I transformed my body, I joined an intense bootcamp and saw HUGE changes. Now, I am really worried I will go back to my old ways. I just need to focus on what I want to achieve and make it happen!

Well, it's nice to be back! Wish me luck emoticon

Keeping My Spirits Up and My Weight Down!

Friday, March 12, 2010

I feel great! I have changed my workout regiment slightly. Every Monday, Wednesday and Friday, I wake up early to do Cardio..then off to the University. After classes, I do more Cardio then Strength Train! I have upped my Cardio days by adding one more workout video. I hope this helps me achieve my weight loss goals!

I am so happy though! I am officially in the 140s!1 ^_^ So happy!

Also.. I am dabbling with a new idea.. to slowly go Flexitarian.. Not complete Vegetarian.. but Flexitarian. I have been thinking about this for a while. I still want to have Dairy and eat Eggs.. but other then that.. I don't NEED meat. I drink Soy Milk now, so I won't be missing Cow's milk. AND, I can easily cut out Beef since I HARDLY eat it anyways. Chicken will be the only thing I would miss.. but I would get over it! I can easily replace my Chicken meals with TOFU. Mmm. I think I will research more.. get some more ideas...find some more veggies that are loaded with Protein..and make a really informed decision.

The health benefits would be really awesome! I am NOT doing this for the love of animals.. But if I don't change.. I will start buying Free Range Meat I think. My Bison already is.. so yes.. because I do love animals...I just like eating them too sometimes...

BAHH. What to do? What to do?

Well..I'll have to keep thinking..and make a decision soon..

On another note.. BILLY TALENT TONIGHT!! WOOT WOOT!! emoticon

So I bought a scale finally! I have now officially lost about 7 pounds! YAY ME!

My lifestyle has changed and I love it! I have found a good balance between eating right and exercising. I also have a good routine, one where I can still get all my school work in and have time for working out.

I am just very happy!!!! I have so much energy!!!! YAY!!! emoticon

I am going to crank it up now though.. do more cardio and push myself harder!
