Focus On the Goal
Monday, February 11, 2013
I guess I'm trying to focus on reaching my goal of weight loss. I feel like since it's the beginning of the year, my body decides to slack off on it's own. Not good. But the good thing is that I am trying to focus my energy back on the good things that I need to do for my health. I'm trying to remember why I'm on here on Spark People. I just need a bit of discipline and less distractions from my main goal.
I hope that by May, when my sister graduates I'll be able to lose 15- 20 lbs so that when I take pictures with her I won't look like the "fat" sister. I'm trying to find motivations for myself and also trying to get into the passion of working out.
Good news: Working out more. Trying to watch my proportions although I'm not counting calories all the time, but I'm getting some where...at least in the right direction. Trying to eat more raw products like veggies and fruits.
Bad news: Craving for bad food. I keep eating candy. I know I don't want to run those calories that I just took in, but I guess I just need to watch myself and my proportions. Eat in moderation and not deprive my body of what it needs. Need more workout to burn off these junk food that I put in myself.
I'm going to do it! I'm going to make it! I'm going to lose weight! I'm tired of being the "fat" one. I need to remind myself of these things and why I'm losing weight again. I'm going to love myself and do myself the favor of living a longer healthier life.
I also have a friend who's doing the same and I'm so happy for her as I see her progress on facebook. She's my role model and inspiration. She's living a healthier lifestyle and losing weight for her health, the people who care about her and mostly for the love of herself.
This weekend I went back to my college to perform and sang my heart out. I saw old friends and one of them told me how did I lose weight. Of course, when asked that I can only tell her that it's all the hard work. There's no secret. I'm just glad someone notice that I've changed, or even if some notice they probably won't tell me. Oh well, can't be helped there.
Also there was a snow storm there so I got stuck there for an extra day, but fear not for I was productive on that day. I went to workout at the workout facility there. It's funny how I only realized that there was a workout facility after I worked out for a while. I guess since I'm not used to getting that access back at home, but I used it to my advantage.
I shall see what happens from here, even if I'm tempted to lose weight the bad way. I need to do what's right for me and my future self.
Thanks for reading! :)
