I don't know how many of you are tired of hearing this (because I'm tired of saying it) but I have hit the reset button yet again.
Yep I've fallen off the wagon BIG time and have the weight gain to show for it. Anyway this morning I jumped out of bed and said NO MORE!! NO MORE eating like I don't know better!! NO MORE making excuses not to exercise!! NO MORE going into all or nothing mode when I have a slip-up!! NO MORE!!
I decided that I will not end this year worse than I started it. I am going to use these last 69 days to make a difference towards my goals. My new goal is to end the year within the healthy B.M.I. range i.e. less than 159 lbs. It can be done and I AM GOING TO DO IT!! I am declaring it here on SP and I'm counting on you Sparkies to keep me accountable. I'll try to make daily updates or at least every two days because I NEED YOU ALL!!
So far I have been 4 days strong with my workout and planning to make it 5 tomorrow. I restarted the Fat Burning Elite program for Turbo Jam and I'm loving it. I am as of today 1 day strong with my eating and tomorrow will be 2.
I'm pushing folks and I hope some of you will push with me. If anyone wants to set a goal with me so we can keep each other on our toes. Let me know!!
I must say that things have been going well for me for the past couple of days. I got back on track with my workouts last week and since the start of the Fall 5 % Challenge on Saturday I've been on track with my food!! I am in the final week of the Maximum Results program for Turbo Jam and I hope to start Fat Burning Elite come Monday.
I'm still trying to rebuild my 4 a.m. exercise habit though and boy is it proving to be a challenge. I have yet to get out of bed when the alarm goes off at 4 despite trying for about 2- 3 weeks now. I won't give up however because I know that I've had the most consistence with my workouts during the times when I've gotten up at 4 to do them. I am going to try yet again tomorrow morning and I'll tell you all how it goes.
On the whole I'm aiming to hit my 5 % weight loss with this challenge because I know that I am more than capable if I put my mind to it.
I'm am going to be DETERMINED!!
Who's with me? Let's give it our all Sparkies especially my Awesome A's!!
What can I say? Despite claiming that I would, I HAVEN'T been making the most of September!! Unfortunately the balance is currently tipping in the favor of bad days over good ones. I've only had 4 good days compared to 6 awful ones. The month is far from over however and so I'm trying to kick my butt back in gear and be the me that makes me happy.
I'm so CONFUSED and FRUSTRATED however that I allow myself to slip into bad habits when I KNOW they don't benefit me in way, shape or form. They make me tired, cranky and depressed actually. Then on the other hand when I'm exercising and eating healthily I feel so in every aspect of my life so the question then is WHY???? Why do I make excuses when I should exercise and why do I stuff myself with junk? It's such irrational behavior but yet it keeps on happening.
Still while I try to figure this out I'm just going to try and refocus. Get back on track with my exercising and my eating one day at a time.
Boy has it been a while since I blogged. I guess I was living by the saying that no news is better than bad news because BELIEVE me these past 2 weeks ALL I had was bad news. I've just been eating out of control for the most part and last week I only got in 2 days worth of workouts.
September has begun however and I WILL make it an month!! I am officially one day back on track already!! (It should have been 2 but unfortunately yesterday followed the same vein as the previous 2 weeks) Anyway I stayed within my calorie range TODAY and I did my Turbo Jam workout despite feeling a little sick. I'm determined AGAIN folks and loving it. I just have to keep my eyes on the prize and always have my goals front and center in mind.
I also need to get rid of my all or nothing mentality because every single derailment from my goals and progress has been a result of it. I'm am going to
I have been maintaining my staying with my calorie range streak and I am 4 days strong with today going to be 5. I am suuuuuuuuuuper happy about this because it so true that we should
Unfortuanetly my 1 day wake up and exercise streak didn't really become a streak because it didn't make it to 2 days. I had a HARD time getting up this morning so much so that I was even late for work. Anyway I won't let that get me down. I plan to get my workout in this evening when I get home. I'm looking forward to it because it will me my first time doing this video. Also
Anyway that's all for now folks. Thanks for your time!!
