My Last Year Uncensored

Saturday, June 08, 2013

It's been over a year since I made a blog entry. I've been trying to get the motivation...I used to find it therapeutic. Maybe this will be. I want to inspire people, and when I don't feel inspired or know what to do, it's disheartening.

The last year has sucked balls for me, healthy choice-wise. I used to be the queen of clean eating, exercise every day...sometimes I only exercise once a week now and even that is just a little S.T. to keep my muscle tone. Don't get me wrong, I haven't gained any weight back, but I've lost a lot of my healthy habits so it makes me feel like it's only a matter of time before I start to gain again. My whole life has been determined by the scale. It's my best friend and my enemy. Holler if you hear me cause I know there are a lot of ladies out there that feel the same way.

Drinking and eating out have been the 2 things that have been detrimental to my goals. My goal (with my friend, we had a workout plan) was to get down to 115 for bikini season. That didn't happen, not for me anyway. I started out strong, as I do, but fizzled after about 6 weeks. I lost 4 pounds and it was awesome.

Alcohol is a fiend, cause not only does it contain a lot of empty calories, but it makes you not care what your eating. It's an evil calorie two-fer!

Anyway I've done two very awesome things this year. I went back to school, and I became Vegan. I'm so proud of both those accomplishments :)

I just wanted to unvent my struggles and let my sparkfriends know i still love them! sorry ive been to out-of-touch, it's not easy to share failures.

Tomorrow i'm going to attempt a fresh -my last- fresh start. 30 min cardio 4 days a week, 3 days S.T, 1200-1400 calories per day, starting a streak of good days. Last but not least eliminating alcohol until I can learn to drink moderately. Go Me! Wish me luck!

    This is one of my favorite quotes.
    "Finish each day and be done with it. You have done what you could. Some blunders and absurdities no doubt crept in; forget them as soon as you can. Tomorrow is a new day; begin it well and serenely and with too high a spirit to be encumbered with your old nonsense"
    Ralph Waldo Emerson

    I hope you have a wonderful fresh new start!

    The scale and I are really not on speaking terms. I check in once every week or two (or more!) and then we part ways. I find it's better for me that way.


    Here's to reinforcing healthy choices and making more healthy habits!
