Fitness Sunday: Week 14

Fitness Sunday

It has been another week. This week hasn’t been so great. I haven’t lost, but it looks like I may have gained a pound this week. I haven’t been drinking enough water, and I have been eating all wrong.

Fitness is hard. It’s hard to want something so bad and not have the time that you really need to do what you really want. It’s hard having no idea what you are doing and not having the money to eat like you want. And please, don’t give me the lecture on how affordable eating healthy is, nor the lecture about how in benefits me in the end. I have heard it all and I can tell you, it is not all that affordable to eat healthy. And while it will benefit me in the end, I still don’t have the money to eat healthy.

I’m just being sour, I know. But my only goal for this week was to lose 2 pounds, and instead I gained a pound. Not only does this put me off on my goal to lose 20 pounds by August, but it puts me even further away from that goal.

In all honesty, I guess I’m just not trying hard enough. I’m just tired of being the fat girl. And I am so tired of people telling me I am fine the way I am. It’s great that people accept how they look. But if I am not happy in my own skin, that is my problem. I am not asking you to tell me I look fine. If I want to stay on a strict diet, shut up about it. It’s not your body, it’s mine. I want to slim down and be a healthier me. I want the me inside my mind to be the me that everyone sees.

I went to the doctor the other day to get a few test run. I will get the results sometime this week, don’t worry, I will more than likely share those results. I really hope that at least my blood work comes back a little on the positive side. My doctor even suggested I come back for his weight loss management that he does. It’s gotta be bad when your doctor wants to help you lose weight…right?

Maybe I am just being a little dramatic. I want to see results, feel results. I want to be a better me, but I keep failing. Most of it is my fault. When I don’t see results I tend to give in. I know it’s not something that is going to happen over night…but I wish I could see a little something different in a week.

I will try harder this week. Shoot for a little bit more than 2 pounds this week. Maybe I can do it this week… I will do it this week.

You can do it! motivation. inspiration. goals. dreams. quotes. wisdom. advice. life lessons.

    Losing weight is tough. I’ve been there. You can do it though! I lost weight going vegan but my friends have had a lot of luck with high protein low carb diets. My biggest suggestion is just walk, bike or run for twenty minutes a day and you’ll see a difference. Try her workouts are easy, short and effective. Good luck!

    Hi Heather, I can totally feel you!
    I’ve been there and that too for a long time! I’m still overweight but I’m way better than before!
    I agree with you about the dieting stuff being expensive! You are right and even I hate all the lectures and people trying to decide stuff for me.
    I’ll share what I do, i hope it’ll help you atleast a bit, scratch that, it’ll help you greatly 🙂
    1.) First of all, and this one is the toughest thing, be HAPPY, and I mean all the time. When we are stressed or plain negative (and being negative includes all the states where we are not positive!), our hormones ruin everything we do, all the diets fail and we end up gaining weight!
    So try to be a more relaxed and calm person (I’m not sure if you are already a positive person, but from my experience I can say you are not, cause even I was not when I was huge.) So smile. As much as you can… okay.
    2.) No need for fancy diet foods. Eat your regular breakfast and lunch but make the dinners light with fruits and milk and something like oats or porridge. The KEY to weight loss is to maintain timings (way more than what actually you’re eating.) Try and maintain timings of your meal. Also, don’t go empty stomach for more than 3-4 hours (otherwise you’ll gain weight.) Just eat what you eat normally and make sure to control the portions.
    3.) Do atleast 20 minutes of walk (if you don’t already) for atleast 5 days a week. Doesn’t matter where you walk or what you wear while walking. Just walk.
    4.) Drink water like crazy… it’ll be a struggle initially but TRUST ME, it’ll become a habit in less that 2 weeks.

    For starting this is enough! Do this for 2 months. You might not see the weight loss initially because first these things will work on building your metabolism and not weight loss. After 2 months you’ll be shocked by the result. This is the healthiest way of loosing weight or to put it right, to be really healthy.

    I started with little walks of 1 km but today I of 8 kms everyday. I haven’t lost a lot of “weight” but I’ve lost tremendous amount of inches and everyone says I look great, not just pretty but there’s a healthy glow on my face. So please try and do this. I’m sharing all this because I’ve been there and no one helped me until finally my husband took the reins in his hands.
    You’ll be shocked to know I haven’t cut on any foods and I don’t even have a single fancy diet stuff. They are temporary. If you’ll follow this above thing then you’ll be doing yourself a big favour by truly healing your lovely body from within.

    Mail me if you want to know more detailed stuff about my process. I’d love to help a dear friend 😀

    Have a great day!
