Fitness Sunday: Week 10

Fitness Sunday

I am getting a little frustrated with myself. I keep sabotaging my own health. I have friends that have been eating healthy, making healthy choices, and losing weight. Me…I have lost 6 pounds in 10 weeks. One friend has lost 10 pounds in 6 weeks. I want to blame it on my PCOS, tell everyone because of my body I just can’t lose the weight as easily.

Truth is…I keep falling off the wagon. I keep stuffing in the sweets and sitting around the house on my days off. Which…I kind of deserve the rest on my days off because I am working a lot lately. But again, it’s just an excuse. An excuse that I lean on to make myself feel better about not losing weight.

At least I am really good at maintaining weight. While I haven’t lost any this week, I haven’t gained any either. Unless the scale is busted again and it’s reading wrong.

I kind of didn’t buy groceries last week, so I spent a few days eating McDonald’s food. Not the healthiest and goes against my desire to rid my diet of fast food. My only other option is the grocery store, but I have been so hungry that there is nothing healthy that catches my eye. Excuses…I know.

I went Friday to the grocery store and bought a few things for breakfast and lunch. I am eating apple and cinnamon oatmeal for breakfast and a salad for lunch. I am trying to cut out sweets again, because it’s a real problem. I don’t know why I can’t cut them out like I did soda over a year ago.

Which brings me to the water issue. I barely get a liter and a half down on good days. Just the other day I didn’t even drink a liter of water. And my goal is to drink 3 liters a day. It’s easy to do, I have done it, I did it for a few weeks straight.

And this makes me question my own personality. I am really good at starting something and keeping it up for a few weeks. Then it fizzles out and I can’t keep it up. I just can find the energy to continue and I don’t understand why I am this way. Maybe it has something to do with being bored…I get bored easily. Or maybe it’s because of my over active imagination and how I would rather be sitting somewhere comfortable, reading. I don’t know what it is…but if I want to keep my “Work Harder than Everyone” motto, I need to start actually doing it.

I am trying to get back on track. Actually this week, I will not try, I will do!


Okay, Yoda, I hear you.

I just have to get my mind back in order. I have to get back to scheduling things. I have to get back to my TO-DO list and actually get things done. I have to lose weight before my birthday in August and I want to lose at least 20 pounds by then.

    Just a little tip- apple and cinnamon oatmeal can be packed with sweeteners (real or fake) that can make it hard to avoid cravings for the rest of the day. If you’re struggling with wanting sugar, a better breakfast might be plain oats with sliced apple, cinnamon, and a tsp of peanut butter mixed in 🙂

      OH! I didn’t know that. I just started eating the apple cinnamon oatmeal. I was eating plain oatmeal with fresh strawberries but I got lazy. Thanks for the tip!
