I know I have been MIA for awhile, and to be completely honest, I pretty much stopped doing everything and just kinda receded within myself. I gained back most of the weight I had lost :( but I am proud to say not all of it. I managed to keep 10 lbs away. So I am now weighing back in at 206.4 :( Totally bummed, and I can feel it and see it on my body.
BUT the good news is, I am getting back on track. I tracked what I ate today and have discovered just how EVIL soda is! I gave up pop years ago and recently started drinking it for the caffeine! I know I shouldn't use caffeine either but I have 12.5 hours of class on Tuesdays with a half hour for lunch and that's it. I need to find another way. But I have been relying on caffeine all semester and I think its taking a major toll on my body.
My Puppy also came to live with me in August!! So glad to have my buddy with me! He makes me walk everyday! Plus Max makes the walks a lot more enjoyable!!
This time around I plan to do things a little differently. I am really going to focus on strength work. Mostly endurance training, for those long lean sexy muscles!!! woot woot!
I am confident that this time around things are going to be different. You ask how? Because this time around I am going to focus on what I can do to help myself instead of what I can't have or what I have to restrict. I am going to focus on adding fruits and veggies instead of cutting out the carbs. I am going to focus on adding more and more exercises in different fun forms instead of tracking every minute on the treadmill or elliptical. Don't get me wrong I love the treadmill and elliptical I am going to use all the knowledge I gained the first time around, but instead I am going to be more forgiving with myself and really focus on all the healthy things I am doing right instead of the negative behaviors I wish to get rid of. I feel like by focusing on the negative things I want to go away, I actually make them bigger and end up putting more energy into what i do NOT want. So I decided to focus on the positive.
I AM GOING TO BE THE CHANGE I WANT TO SEE!!!!
