I look at how far I’ve come. Yeah okay I haven’t lost like 30 lbs (or even ten for that matter) but exercise is no longer a stranger to me. Healthy habits are developing as well as a consistent (semi consistent workout routine). Some people have even noticed a change and commenting on how I look better. Honestly even though I’m taking this lifestyle change one day at a time and not rushing things, I DO feel better. I don’t feel as fat and disgusting when I sit. My endurance and ARM strength have definitely improved from January.
What I need to change though, my consistency and my eating habits. I haven’t gotten a hold of clean meals just yet. I’ll have two out of three meals healthy and the other is usually just a whatever meal. And unfortunately I’ve been eating a lot of cookies.
EAT MORE GREENS AND FRUITS. STAY AWAY FROM COFFEE!!!!!!!!! AND COOKIES!!!!
Hopefully I’ll actually see a change in weight soon.
My legs were made for walking, not to look skinny. My tummy was made for holding my organs, not to be flat. My bones were made as a structural foundation for my body, not to stick out. Appreciate what your body can do for you instead of trying to make it 'look good'.
I just can't wait to see what my body looks like without all the fat. Because I know it will be like nothing I have ever seen on tumblr or in the magazines, because I will see all my hard work in those abs, and remember all the squats I did for my amazing butt. It won't just be a body, it will be a masterpiece.
So it’s March 27 and honestly I fell off the wagon last month. This week I decided to get back on and I’ve restarted working out. So excited because I know I can do it. I sort of undid my progress so I have to work extra hard to be were I was last month and even stronger. I can do this!!
“I think sometimes people forget just how lucky we are. We are alive. We have food. We have clean, running water. We have shelter and infrastructure. We have an operating medical system. I mean, it’s all very well to stress about our lives, to frantically search for direction and to wonder if we will ever do something worthwhile. It’s fine to be overwhelmed by choices. But at least we have those choices to make. There are people out there who won’t make it til tomorrow. We are extremely blessed and I think everyone just needs to take a step back from the self-loathing, the doubt, the teenage friendship dramas, the relationship troubles and all other manner of causes of apparent stress and realize that. We are alive.”—(via inspirinquotes)
