Work Out Wednesday

February 19, 2014

It's time for another work out Wednesday! This is starting as a weekly way for me to stay positive after and during loosing weight, getting healthy, & staying that way.
So this week I am focusing on motivation.
No matter if you're just starting out on your weight loss journey, hit all your goals (wish!), or just need a little motivation to get through the rest of the week. I'm here to help!
This is a HUGE one for me. I look at all the beautiful thin girls in their mid-20's and wish I was back there sometimes. I was insanely thin & fit in my teens and twenties. I could eat whatever I craved and never gain a pound. Then I had Bella at 25, and was able to loose all of the baby weight within 6 months after having her. (I gained 35 lbs during the pregnancy). Then my 30's hit & boom the weight came on and stayed around.
There's days when I look in the mirror and are disgusted with my body. At least the bottom 1/2. There's days when I look and think wow this is actually working for me. All depends on my mood, water weight, etc. but I always think I could definitely loose more. Myself is my biggest competition.

I love this quote. Mainly because I am not an emotional eater except when it comes to boredom. If I'm home relaxing and not even hungry, I start to munch. I might not munch on "bad foods" (i.e. chips, queso, popcorn), but I still munch.
On the flip side, when I'm really pissed off or upset, I always get to the gym. I get that aggravation out or blast my headphones and get that horrible sad feeling out. It really does work and once I'm done, I'm done. Same goes for running. Being out there by yourself for 30 or so minutes really helps clear your mind.

Last one for today is perfect for everyone that wants to slack off or eat that doughnut that someone brought to the office. (Or in my case breakfast tacos! They're my weakness!)
It ain't easy, not in the least. It's damn hard, it sucks, it's the toughest thing you can challenge yourself to do, but in the end it is absolutely worth it!
I keep thinking about wearing that swimsuit on the beaches & going to Vegas this Fall, I want to look good and I want to be happy with myself before any of those happen.
Stick to it, the hard work, the tears, the blood, the sweat, the pain, they will ALL be worth it in the end.
