I’ve been slacking off with my goals this past month but I’m back now. Life just hit me really hard for a couple of weeks but my head is on straight and I’m going to get the ball rolling again. How have you all been with keeping up on your goals?
Remember how it first felt when you started losing weight? When the number on the scale got smaller and smaller, when your clothes got bigger and bigger, when your confidence level went higher and higher. Don't let that feeling get taken away from you. Remember how good that felt? Get that back. Don't lose yourself to discouragement and laziness. Come on, girl. You can do this.
When I lose this weight, I don't expect to have a boyfriend who will love me forever. I don't expect a better job or lots of money. I don't expect for all the guys that rejected me to come crawling back or for the mean girls who called me fat to apologize. You know what I expect? Confidence within myself so all the above will not mean crap to me. I expect to walk with my head up high and happy.
My mom opened my eyes to something yesterday that I feel all of you fitblrs should hear.
Mom:So why don't you run in a sports bra like some of the other girls here?
Me:I don't wanna jiggle and have people see...
Mom:Well, that's silly. I mean, look at that guy. -points to shirtless man running past us with a larger belly- He doesn't have a shirt on and he doesn't seem to care who looks at him funny. This is a track and people come here, all shapes and sizes, for one reason: to get fit. So who cares if you run around shirtless, or in a sports bra, and jiggle a bit? You're here for that reason - to get RID of that jiggle. And no one can judge you for jiggling because they're here for the exact same reason. So why not be confident and run around in a sports bra? I mean, it'll also give you more motive to work harder so you don't jiggle, if it really means that much to you. And it'll be a little revenge to those who first looked at you funny when you come back one day and you've got abs that blow their minds away.
257.1. Yay! That’s 15lbs in a month. I started slacking off recently with working out and eating but now that I’ve seen what I can accomplish, I can’t wait to see what I can do next month at 100% effort. How have all of you been doing?
So, I decided that I’m ready to start moving my life forward and I’m attempting to get a few big things accomplished by 2013. I’m posting them on my blog as an attempt to make my goals more real. So, here they are:
Lose 50 lbs. (I’ve already been working on this one for a month. I’d have to lose 10lbs a month to make this one happen)
Get a better paying job. (At my current job, I only work 2x a week, so, really anything else would be better).
Move out. (This hinges on whether or not I accomplish #2)
Stop smoking. (Goes without saying).
Go back to school. (I took yet another semester off and I just really want to be back in school. Add.Drop is August 27th, so, I have a much shorted deadline for this one).
