dec 31st. 3kg lost. motivation lost.

Monday, December 31, 2012

Made this little image up today, 106kgs on the left and a tidy 68 kgs on the right.... which ISNT my goal but 86 still had no waist.. I found a girl on the net who lost the same amount of weight (aprox 40kgs)

It's quite a radical difference. Huh? She looks wildly different. Her passion is fashion as you can see in both photos.. but gee she must have more options for self expression now, good for her :)

I reset my weightloss goal on the spark counter for 68 kgs... but 4 years away lol, and it's actually in line with my current weight loss... (10kgs loss a year?) possible :)
Could I ever be 68??? NO IDEA. I've never been that before. Doesn't matter yet...

My first goal is Size 18 jeans. I measured, I'm 16 cms away. =]
I'm frustrated everythings shut.. the Library, the Gym.. So I can't work out and I can't design a work out. For another three days... The whole city is on holiday. And I'm horrifically bored. I was invited to a new years party today... PASS.

Regardless I still have workout videos to work out with at home.. and my new mountain bike.. and for some reason I'm exhausted and lacking motivation... might be effected by Kelvin being home from work... Ugh.

On the lovely side of life, I have definitely lost 3kgs (that's over 5lbs) So to get to my first goal weight of 86 kgs, which means I've lost 3 of the 20, with 17 to go, and if i was going to go for 68, I have just 35 kgs to go (yikes)
If I had more money, I'd go buy a charm bracelet and shout myself a charm for each kg lost... hehe. Cos that would be a lovely reminder.. right there..
and a kg is hard to do! (2.2lbs)
But yeah... as I mentioned yesterday losing weight is slow for me. And I can accept that.. but 10kgs a year is a reasonable for me, goal :)

I suppose one thing I could do is compile some healthy recipes together :D

It would be nice if i would publish my beginning photo..
and 5kgs down each time :)

But yeah.......
How do you get up off the bed,,,, from thinking " I'm sick of being this wide around the middle, i should work out" to..
working out?
I don't think my self talk is quite right.. and I'm definitely not feeling as motivated as I'd like.
Even looking at the before and after pictures above, look "impossible" to me.

    Thank you for that advice Sarahstot, I'm gonna do that actually.. today after my shower I got changed into my fitness clothes and have not done a stitch all day!!
    I've also decided classes motivate me a lot but for now, first thing in the morning. good plan!!! Heck I'll even lay my fitness clothes near my bed tonight :)

    I find that when I don't want to work out (which happens fairly often) it is better for me to work out as soon as I wake up. I give myself zero time to talk myself out of it, plus you FEEL so much better knowing that you've worked out and you don't have to dread it all day and put it off. Even on mornings when I work at 6am, I will wake up at 4:30 and go for a run, then shower and go to work. I feel good for my whole day knowing I didn't let myself down and even better that I don't have to work out after work! Also do different things each workout to spice it up! Hope this helped!
