After a 2 week hiatus of posting my weekly progress pics and measurements, I’m back!
In one of my last posts, I wrote about my frustration with the process where I admitted I have not been giving it 120% each and every day. Some days were 80%, some 100%, and others 50%. Well, when you give half ass effort, you get half ass results.
This week, I recommitted to myself that it’s now or never. I either push through the pain of eating smaller portions and working out or live with the pain of feeling miserable in my own skin which I just can’t do anymore. My weight loss has to be my number one priority over everything and everyone. I get that now. I have to take the time each day to make sure that is above everything I’m doing. I’ve been waking up early, getting my work out in, and eating right.
Here are this week’s progress pictures and measurements. I’m proud to say that this week’s measurements are all in the green! I had to blur out my face in my progress pics because I was looking a hot mess as this was right after my morning jog!
Weight loss is a process and it takes time. Everyone’s journey is going to look and feel different and that’s OK! There’s so much more to it than just measuring inches and pounds lost. It’s also about measuring your mental and emotional changes. Just like the “Are You Addicted to the Food or the Ritual” post, I noticed something that I was doing subconsciously. The victory is that now I can recognize the behavior and decide to make a positive choice.
I recommitted myself this week and completed week one of the couch to 5K program. I’ve signed up to run my second 5K this October, so I have something to help motivate me. If you want it hard enough, commit to yourself to get it done. No matter what it takes! Go hard or go home!!!!
