So we have results to share with you all today, but first I would like to share some thoughts.
I gained weight this week. My dear ol mum came for a visit, so I thought I was on vacation, too. Got back on track today. The important thing (that I keep telling myself) is not to give up. I feel like I’ve already come a small ways from where I was when I started, so I can’t give up. The formula for losing weight is not complicated. Calrories in vs Calories out. Drink water. Exercise.
In other news, I had a rip roaring time with my mom, it was so good to see her!! We got our hair done, a manicure, got my house painted, went to the movies, had lunches and long talks… a girl always needs her mom.
So. I would love for us to collaborate on a way where we can continue to be motivated. Do you need to do group activities so you’re held accountable? Text someone when you’re headed to the gym? Hold off on relaxing or getting a mani/pedi until after you’ve done your work out for the day? Do you need to try new healthy foods each week to keep it interesting? Do you need someone to check in with you to keep your head in the game? Do you like to save your fav orite tunes for working out only so you can look forward to working out? Or save a certain show for only when you’re hitting the treadmill? What works for you? AT this point I think we ALL need some other point of views on what works to stay motivated. I would love for us to all finish strong in this together. We need to remind ourselves that we not only love our families and our friends, but we need to also love ourselves. Sometimes I know I forget that. Loving ourselves is not eating a cheeseburger because “we deserve it”. It’s pushing ourselves and that amazing feeling we get after reaching goals we didn’t know we could. Love is discipline.
And now our numbers for the week! Let’s kick it into major time this week! Time for the Biggest Loser Challenge is almost up, but it’s not over yet!
