be hard on fat and hold your self accountable already

Friday, July 05, 2013

oh the politically correctness on fat these days! Oh dont be mean. Dont be down on your self. Be kind to your self. Accept your self...I can seriously go on. If you weigh more then your husband or an average male then yep you are fat. Oh wait, dont get all huffy. My hand is raised too.
The softness on fat is erking me lately. And society is erking me with allowing their kids to get fat along side them. Oh no my hand isnt raised here. Nope my girls are super fit and healthy and as long as I can help it they will stay that way.
I cant stand how we are recommended to be nice to our fat and not criticize it. well to hell with that. I am criticizing my fat and as I found out yesterday others will as well.
I was at a BBQ with my new neighbors yesterday, putting out feelers looking for the ones that workout. One gal came later super trim and fit and I was like, SCORE! We were chatting about fitness and running and I told her I ran 26.2 in March and how I am planning on running another in Nov. I also said how I gained some weight after the race...I didnt even get it out until she said, "yeah thats what happens when you let your self go". I immediately snapped back , "i didnt let my self go I started a power lifting program where I hardly do any cardio". She immediately knew i was pissed and explained she meant with let go of running how going back is hard. I actually believe her.
I wouldn't look at me and think oh she let her self go...or would I?
I have. I am a big girl and recognize that I have gained and I have no one to blame but myself. I am not is denial of my fat and I do not believe calling myself out on it will crumble my mental state.
I wear jeans in July in the south??

I made myself hear the truth. And now I am gonna change it.
For crying out loud eat an apple before you go shopping!!

Instead of plantain chips(my fav) eat roasted seaweed!

look at these cute measuring cups I found! Keeping myself on track in style!

Yes running in the rain doubles your hardcoreness

and the situps

So yes, I may be tough on myself, but the truth isnt always easy to hear. Instead of being soft on fat, get hard on it.

    Great blog! Very true. Rather hear it from myself and take care of the ugly fat than wait to hear it from someone else! It is tough to hear especially when we still workout super hard. Life just makes it hard on us sometimes. I remember when one of my sil asked me if I still worked out while looking at my tummy. Ugh! Super rude. All we can do is keep going and work on it. We will get there one day at a time. All those little things like measuring and not going to the store hungry make a huge difference.

    Ha ha, my hubby is an inch shorter than me with a much faster metabolism... we have a rule, if I weigh more than he does we have to break up. Sometimes I have to tell him to get into the gym and lift some weights with his scrawny butt!

    It's true, we need to keep ourselves accountable. I needed to hear that today.

    Yep, I am going HARD! And its so true, weight training does make the scale increase some, plus my appetite has picked up a great deal since I started heavy lifting...I must learn to stay away from Dryers 1/2 churned ice cream and peanut butter.....man peanut butter seems to be way too good to me now...smh! As always you look FABULOUS my friend, KEEP LIFTING HEAVY STUFF. emoticon emoticon

    You look AMAZING. I am 6 feet tall and I am a "big" girl too. You might be hard on yourself by calling yourself fat, to the others in the outside looking in (me) see differently. Plus your kids are a testament to a healthy and beautiful mom, who does whatever it takes to keep her family healthy and strong. Your new neighborhood Chica might not understand that... When you workout, you shut it down always. That's BEAST in my book.

    OR that girl is just a B****

    I think I'm right.

    Now I'm not saying that we should NOT accept responsibility for our actions, but dude you workout like a Olympian athlete. She probably eats like a little bird and works out HALF the amount that you do. I'de like to see her blood work numbers and her bodyfat percentage! Has she even ever had kids?!!! Has she ever been overweight in her life???

    Ugh, she aggravated me and I wasn't even the person she told this to!
