Getting Fit Finally…Again!

How many of us have made a pact with ourselves to get in shape, lose some weight  and eat healthy…only to fail (miserably) mere weeks, days or in some cases hours later? This is what happens with me:

1. Something prompts motivation for me to actually start thinking about getting fit.

  • Meeting a cute guy who I’d have a better chance of snagging with less jiggle
  • Dreams of doing the infamous Baywatch slo-mo run down the beach
  • Desire to fit into clothes at ALL the stores in the mall, not just two
  • Okay, this list could probably go on for days but you get the picture.

2. I usually give all my gusto to planning how I’m gonna get fit. I buy a cute notebook, plan out meals and exercise routines, I will count calories and keep a food journal. The whole shabang goes into the thought of losing weight.

3.I put my plan into action. I go strong for a few weeks usually, see some results and then…I treat myself. A sweet snack here, a skipped exercise routine there and before I know it I’m using my handy dandy food journal to doodle and write poems in.

 

 

And that my friends is how I continue to not lose weight, get healthy and be in great shape. Of course I have decided to do it all over again, hopefully I won’t lose my motivation. One hundred days is the time frame I’ve given myself. 33 pounds lost is the first ideal weight and comfortably confident with my body is the main goal. 99 days left, wish me luck!

Woo-hoo day two!

  1. Reblogged this on inspiredweightloss and commented:
    GM, I have promised myself so many times that I am going to lose this horrible weight and I end up keeping the promise, but I end up failing. Now I am definitely on a mission to successed at losing this weight this time. And I am now writting a blog and sharing my information with everyone. I wish you much success!

  2. I’ve undermined myself with the whole “Sweet treat” thing. It’s read, and it seems true, it’s better to treat yourself with non-edible things…like a cute new notebook for planning something else fun, or some new costume jewelry, or even a new bottle of nail polish, etc.

    I think making habits helps, too. When you get into patterns, it just becomes the thing to do.

    And Zumba actually helps me eat better, but not for the obvious reasons. For example, say I have to Zumba on a Tuesday night. If I’m trying to figure out what to eat for lunch and think a cheeseburger and fries sound tasty, I remind myself I’m doing Zumba later and don’t want all that heaviness on my stomach slowing me down and making me feel bad in class. Especially, if I eat late, I can’t eat heavy things b/c it literally makes me feel nauseous in class. lol.

    Anywho, good luck! You can do it! 🙂

  3. Best of luck with your weight loss goal! Just remember that each day is its own goal. Don’t worry about tomorrow and the past is the past. You are only in control of today! Again, best of luck!
