30 Days, 4lbs, and Forward Motion

Standard

img_4488January 2: I was embarrassed and distressed at how bad I looked, and honestly how bad I felt. Just look at the face in those two photos – it says a lot. You need to be happy with you. I am not happy in this body and I do not need one more person saying “you’re perfect the way you are.” That’s an excuse to be unhealthy and I will no longer make excuses or allow myself to be in lazy habits. I used to be beautifully curvy, now I’m lumpy and rolly. Curvy does not equal obese. Obese IS unhealthy no matter how you slice it.

February 2: Down 4lbs in 30 days – I’ll take it. Now, if I burned all of that at 3,500 calories per pound, that would be 14,000 calories burned. Now, a literal lb of fat and overall weight loss are different (water, proteins) but either way – #IAmWinning. I’ve been working out fairly consistently since 1 Jan, took my photo on 2 Jan, and started my #lowcarb #keto nutrition on 13 Jan (just felt right). This progress photo on 2 Feb. I see a little difference, but I FEEL the difference already in my clothes. I’ve got a long way to go, but I am proud of me. Sunday ends my current #ChallengeGroup and we start again on 13 Feb. Join me, what have you got to lose?  #Accountability with my teammates, and my family, is keeping me moving in the right direction. I am here for YOU! #AllAboutTheJourney

Yes, all body types are different, but don’t lie to yourself. If you’re truly happy in your current state of health, then keep it up! If you’re like the majority of Americans and in my boat, we can change for the better together. I’m on my journey and sincerely invite you to start yours. Talk to me, let’s do this together.

Let’s see how March 1 goes…

Cheers to 2015 – This year I WILL hit my goals

Standard

Happy Saturday Night – as you can tell, I am being super-awesome and staying in tonight. #Snark? Usually, but not this time.

I am proud of myself that day 3 of the New Year have just completed #P90X #CoreSynergistics. I feel great and am determined to lose my #Divorce weight, which is in combination with my #GradSchool weight. Stress and unbalance were a huge part of the past two years and I’m combating it now!

I want to be bikini-hot by May 17, which will be my 1-year divorce-aversary. It’s a goal of mine to spend it happy, on the beach, and in a bikini. I will celebrate my freedom, recovery, and my ever-growing #resiliency.

 How will I do this? Well, through food portion-control, sweat, and through surrounding myself with positivity. And I WILL lose 30lbs. Will I be a tiny stick, no, but that’s not my goal. I want to be healthy, and on this body that’s probably still thick. I’m cool with that.

Why? I want to get back to me and feel good again. I want my energy back. I want to be proud of myself and get back into cute clothes. Let’s be honest here, I want to look good naked. That’s why. FOR ME.

OK, now that’s those #goals have been published, I better stick to it.

What are your 2015 goals? Financial freedom? Increase, or diversify your income? Lose weight? Build muscle? Eat clean? Read more books? Do more professional development?

Whatever it is – write it down. Check on those goals every few weeks. Just because you miss it one week doesn’t mean you give up. Doing more is just that, do more than you did last year, last month, or last week.

We can do it! Cheers to 2015.

Share any of my goals? Join me for the next challenge group starting January 5. We can get you set up and in the accountability group asap!
