You can't weigh beauty

This page has been lying for several months.
I did make it to my lowest weight, but then several bad things happened one after the other, it felt like my life was falling apart, and suddenly eating was the only thing I had any control over. So of course I used that control to eat as much as I wanted of whatever I wanted.

I'm not quite back to where I started, but a lot closer than I ever wanted to be again.

So here are my new stats and goals:

I'm not quite back to where I started, but a lot closer than I ever wanted to be again.

So here are my new stats and goals:
Start weight (03.07.14) - 11 stone 10, 164 lbs
Next target weight - 11 stone 7, 161 lbs by 20.07.14
End goal weight - 10 stone, 140 lbs

My plan at the moment is to get through 30 Day Shred (I'm on day 15) right to the end for once.
After that my timetable will be:
Sunday - Kettlebells and swim
Monday - Bodyweight circuit
Tuesday - Run and swim (with kizomba class every other week)
Wednesday - Kettlebells and salsa class
Thursday - Run and swim
Friday - Swim
Saturday - Long run and swim

Non-scale goals:
1. Finish 30 Day Shred.
2. Run 5K in less than 35 minutes
3. Do 10 press ups

And a plan would be nothing without rewards:
159 (5lbs down) - A new book
154 (10lbs down) - Some pretty earrings
149 (15lbs down) - A new vintage dress
144 (20 lbs down) - Some new shoes from a proper shoe shop
140 GOAL WEIGHT! - Book teapot.

This Holiday Season, give yourself the gift of self-motivation:

1. Review your reasons for wanting to be healthier.

2. Think about how you felt when you began your new healthy lifestyle. You remember . . . tired, low energy, lots of aches and pains, miserable, embarrassed, etc. and pay close attention to the smallest changes in your body. Think about how far you’ve come so far.

3. Challenge yourself . . . the try some new, healthy food options; a new form of exercise; walk farther; run faster; whatever. Just make sure the challenge you set is realistic for you.

4. Set up reminders to keep yourself on track – they can be sticky notes taped to your computer monitor, automatic text messages/emails you send yourself, or anything else that will keep your goals front and center in your mind.

5. Surround yourself with others who are positive and motivated.

6. Read success stories or watch them on video.

7. Learn as much as you can about healthy lifestyles. In this case, education CAN be free! There is a ton of good info on this site or in your local library. Knowledge is POWER!

8. Just Get Moving! Once you start, you’ll want to keep going.

9. Keep a record of your progress. Seeing concrete evidence of your improvement will motivate you to do even more/better.

10. Help others when you can.

Keep going!

You are SPARKTACULAR!

“Regardless of what came before or of what has yet to come, what matters most right now is how I choose to respond to the challenge before me. Will I lie down or will I fight? The choice is mine and I choose to finish strong.” (Dan Green)

“Get Off The Scale!

You are beautiful. Your beauty, just like your capacity for life, happiness, and success, is immeasurable. Day after day, countless people across the globe get on a scale in search of validation of beauty and social acceptance.

Get off the scale! I have yet to see a scale that can tell you how enchanting your eyes are. I have yet to see a scale that can show you how wonderful your hair looks when the sun shines its glorious rays on it. I have yet to see a scale that can thank you for your compassion, sense of humor, and contagious smile. Get off the scale because I have yet to see one that can admire you for your perseverance when challenged in life.

It’s true, the scale can only give you a numerical reflection of your relationship with gravity. That’s it. It cannot measure beauty, talent, purpose, life force, possibility, strength, or love. Don’t give the scale more power than it has earned. Take note of the number, then get off the scale and live your life. You are beautiful!”

(Steve Maraboli)
