That ah ha moment!

Thursday, May 21, 2015

My friend Kathy yesterday post that the days she slacks off and doesn't exercise or eat right she feels gross, and I was thinking about that. And then I thought so more. I realized, this time last year I would have been like yeah ok whatever Hoecheese one day can't affect how you feel everyone needs a rest day anyway, and that would turn in to 2 rest days, and then well I can't start in the middle of the week, and then well I'll do it on this day after I get a starting weight. Which would eventually lead to not doing anything for months at a time until on day I would see myself in a picture and go on some crazy obsession for a while like maybe 2 or 3 weeks and fall off a wagon. This time though, this round, I'm not letting that happen. I noticed my hoecheese was right, I kind of slacked off for 2 days this week as I haven't been feeling 100%, and then yesterday when I did my little things I've been doing the squats and pushups I felt so much better. Then when I was walking down the hall after I had done the pushups or squats, I felt confident and almost sexy, thinking you can't see the change now but when you do it's going to be awesome!

images I know every girl and maybe men will say no I am losing weight because I want to be healthy but, I'm going to call BS on at LEAST 80% of those, girls want to lose weight so they feel sexy, they want to be the one at the bar that gets hit on, they want to be walking down the street and the horn honks. And I well I am no different, and you know what that is OK because it's a goal is a motivation! I have a little teddy in my closet that I have never put on, and I wont until I lose the weight because I don't want to see my current self in it for the fear it will ruin how I feel about it for the future. Also don't get me wrong my husband has always told me he loves me just the way I am now, but really I mean could you imagine how much more attracted to me he would be if I weighed what I was supposed to? Or even closer to what I should be than I am now? It's just a good motivation for me is all I'm saying!

So goals from yesterday, weren't really set that's for sure but what I did accomplish was 65 squats, and getting up and moving today I would swear I did like 1000 lol. I also did 125 wall pushup, and I know I favor that exercise but that is because it's one I can do in the bathroom stall, without making noise and without being obvious I am doing something lol, and that is about all I got done in the way of exercising, except yesterday was a heel day and I can feel the stretching in my Achilles heel this morning and it's not a hurt its a sore like when you work out a muscle kind of like my thighs this morning! In the way of calorie goal yesterday, yeah there was no chance of staying within my goal when I started the morning with 2 cans of coffee and big ole bottle of mt.dew, so yeah I wont even pretend I did well with that!

Goals for today:

I want get crunches in 300 at least, and that can be in any way shape or form as long as they are done. Squats, and wall pushups, which I am already at 50 of each so may shoot for 200 of each, but at least 100 I will be happy. I also want to do some triceps extensions and some calf raises, which I think I can do discreetly while standing out side on breaks with my friends. In the way of calories and food, I am going to stick to the shakes again today see if I cannot get back on track with that and sitting next to me at my desk I do have the lovely bottle of the detox cleanse watching me lol, so I want to get that down asap too.

On another side note Justin and I got our Thrive patches in the mail yesterday and I am wearing mine could not be more excited to have them back!!!!!
