Fitspirational Tuesday

Instead of me writing about Inspirational Tuesdays life how I normally would on my previous blog I figure why not write about something I am completely struggling with as an inspiration to myself.

I would have to say that I've always struggled with weight my whole life except I never really cared about is as much until after I had Ryu. I love Ryu, but let's face it not every woman will be lucky enough to go back to the size that they used to be. I feel like every day becomes so much harder for me. Though I don't look fat I do look extremely thick and I just can't stand my clothes not fitting anymore. I can sit here continuously complaining about how much I dislike my body, but that won't do any good.

Instead I want to write about my journey into getting back on track with my healthy self. I keep telling myself that I'm going to start tomorrow and seriously that is the worst attitude to have. If you are serious about something you have to start that moment, that same day. Don't tell yourself tomorrow, tell yourself to start now!! I think my biggest problem is I absolutely love food to the point that I use it as my comfort blanket for everything.

I mean who doesn't love food? Regardless whether it's something healthy or unhealthy we need it to survive and we love it. I am starting my diet, my routine, my journey today. I am going to hold my head up high and tell myself that I can do this. I know that I am going to hate myself for the next two weeks trying to eat healthier, but it will be all well worth it in the end. Once I can incorporate this to my lifestyle I can become a much more happier and healthier me.

What is my game plan? I want to start off by cutting off sugar and carbs out of my diet. This is going to be difficult, but I need to get a bit extreme if I want to train myself. This means no more soda for me. I stopped with the candy a few weeks ago and have not been craving it at all so that's a good thing.

I am going to start with my meal preps again because to be honest that really helped with making sure I don't overeat or go out to buy junk. I started eating like crap again after I quit my job. I felt depressed and lost and just wanted to sulk in the crappiest food. Now that I'm slowly regaining my confidence in my new position, my family, and home I want to just start all over. It's definitely never too late!

These pictures were taken several weeks ago. Since then I've gained so much weight and I've never been skinny. However, it's nice to know and feel that you can fit into your clothes. It's the feeling of just knowing you look good and feeling good in general. I don't have any recent pictures, but that's because I'm so self conscious of how I look. However, since I'm starting my journey I am going to keep a tracker and update myself weekly on here.

  1. i love reading about other people's journeys. i started mine 17 months ago! can you believe it!? time flies and when i look back, i'm SO GLAD that i started when i did because now, over a year later, i'm in the best shape of my life.

    by the way, you don't have to cut out carbs...just switch to healthier versions; they're better for you and give you more energy. what it boils down to are calories per day. if you're within your range for weight loss, a little sugar (ie. in your coffee or tea etc) won't make a dent. if you go overboard and consume sugary products like soda or syrupy things, then yes, that will definitely push you over your caloric limits.

    so there's really no need to cut out carbs to lose weight. people find that they lose weight like that because they were over-eating carbs to begin with. you can lose weight without cutting out major food groups as long as you know what your caloric intake is for weight loss and stay within that range. i need carbs for the types of workouts i do and i eat carbs daily and continue to shrink in sizes.

    YOU CAN DO THIS!! i'm looking forward to your journey posts :)
