Choose Your Hard.

Thursday, November 22, 2012

If you’re TIRED of starting over, STOP giving up.

Sure, easier said than done but it still rings true. I think it comes down to choosing our hard. I know, some of you are probably thinking: “Choosing our hard? What is this girl talking about?” Well, here’s what I’m talking about:

On top of that: cheating is hard; skipping a workout is hard (guilt, anyone?); making healthy choices is hard; finding motivation to go to the gym is hard.

I mean, really, how many of us complain about how hard it is to be overweight and how harshly we feel that people judge us. In the same way, we complain about how difficult it is to lose weight and to stay motivated. Well, enough is enough for me and I am choosing my hard: to lose weight. It won’t be easy, but it will be worth it.

Nothing in life is easy and obviously I wasn’t built to be a thin girl, but I have to make the commitment to being HEALTHY. Yes, it will be hard, but it sure would be a heck of a lot more fun than always thinking about how fat I look.

So there it is, folks. Which hard will you choose today?


I ate within my range (1379) but I seemed to be hungry all day. My stomach chose to make me suffer through constant growling ALL day. I tried drinking water; but that didn’t help. I even had a big lunch; that didn’t help. I ate a bigger dinner than planned; that didn’t help. UGH. I woke up this morning feeling ravenous… Not. Good. I am hoping that today will be a less hungry day.

I did well… drank all my water. I also drank COFFEE. It’s supposed to suppress your appetite and it usually works for me (plus, I enjoy it) but it didn’t work yesterday. Nope. We did start getting Christmas cups though. Cheers me up.

Intense workout at the gym after work: back & biceps. The gym was surprisingly busier than usual and everyone seemed to be in a good mood. A lot of people said hello to me and most people smiled at me. I might have been exuding positive vibes or something.

I weighed 201.4 lbs which is a loss of 0.6 lbs since yesterday. My water weight must be evening out from my little dehydrating episode the other day. I’m happy with my progress and I’m close to my first goal of reaching 199 by December 1st.

Here’s where I didn’t do so well. I was on the phone with the new guy I started seeing. Oops. I only got off the phone at 11pm and then I was a wee bit wound up from our two-hour conversation and well, I didn’t get much sleep.

The alarm rang and I pressed the snooze button *gasp*. I know, I know…
The good news is that my guilt took over – and my cat started screaming at me… so I didn’t wait for the next alarm to ring and I just got up. I think that counts.

That’s all for now folks. Have a great day !!

Which hard will you choose today?

    I'm choosing to maintain my weight over the weekend, or at least try my best. I figure I'll jump back into the weight loss battle when I'm back to my normal life (as in not visiting my parents, which is always a recipe for disaster foodwise)
