August Goals

I know I am late with this but better late than never!

I want to do a new thing for my blog. I’ve been having a lot of success with my baby and I feel honored that my lovely readers (old and new) like my blog enough to follow it and comment and read my posts.

I have had a struggle with goals and meeting them pretty much all my life but I am going to start holding myself accountable and hope that you all will do the same. I am going to start writing my goals out and sharing them here on the blog, every month!

Wednesday: Choabni yogurt, bagel. Boiled Egg. Tuna sandwich on french bread with chips

Saturday: Chobani yogurt, Graphfruit. Iced coffee with almond milk. Manwhich with some fried fish. Chicken dinner leftovers from Friday.


REFLECTION:

I havent weighed myself again. I don’t feel as though I’ve lost any weight yet plus I was rushing and forgot to do so. These last two weeks have been horrible as far as my activity goes. It’s been so hot outside that I haven’t wanted to go out to take my daily walks and so busy inside with homework that I’ve not found time to workout inside either. I am going to lose 25 pounds this year and keep them off. I know I will. It’s just something I’m going to have to give blood, sweat, and tears to reach my goal!

Well it has been 8 weeks so far and I’ve not lost weight. At least, not a significant amount. Does that make me want to stop? Yes. Does it break my confidence? Absolutely. Am I going to stop? Hell no. I refuse to give up on getting healthier. I know I can find a healthier lifestyle. As far as eating goes, I’ve pretty much giving up red meats and I don’t eat nearly as big of portions as I used to. It’s more of the working out and physical exercise that I need to work harder on and get a habit of.

*Disclaimer* I want to state that my mood is not the best right now. I am one person who can feel the mood of something I read from someone, I hope that made sense. Basically, if you write a “happy” post, but your mood was sour and down while you wrote it, I can sense that in the writing. So If you are like me and can sense my mood, well I do apologize but I want to get this post out for my viewers following this.

REFLECTION:

I lost weight and that makes me happy because my eyes are seeing a difference. I don’t know what to expect though. This happens a lot when I am on my weight loss journey. The week wasn’t that productive as far as working out, and I didn’t eat that well but I lost weight…It’s weird. But I’m not complaining.

Chubby Girl Gets Skinny:Hello Lovely week 6

WEIGHT-LOSS/HEALTHY LIFESTYLE JOURNEY

Hello Dolls and Kens! Today I wanted to speak and introduce a personal part of my life with you. I have been speaking with Elisabeth at Everything & Nothing about her wonderful weight loss posts and she inspired me to make and share my own! She has been so sweet and accepted my request to join her and collaborate with her on this journey! Make sure you check her posts out, she’s very inspiring!

To give you some background, I went through an awful experience at the age of 6 and began to eat my fears and stress away. I have been a big girl since then. I have tried many times to workout and eat right but it never went through. My heaviest weight was 230lbs. I am only 5’2 so that is obesity for me. I was devastated hearing that word, I was 15 when I heard it from the doctor and I vowed to get healthier. Well, I haven’t stopped my journey, but I havent had much difference either. I will admit that I have lost some weight. I am currently at 215lbs, which is good, but I am now in my mid 20’s…it shouldn’t have taken me this long to lose that little amount of weight. I am working out daily, starting small as I have an irregular heartbeat (so I can’t put too much stress on my heart).

I will be posting a weekly summary every Sunday of how I did during the week!
