Okay, playtime is over! I know, I know. You girls are probably sick and tired of hearing me say that I’m ready to jump on the bandwagon and do awesome again, but I REALLY mean it this time! And just to make sure, I want you to all say something mean and hurtful in the comment you leave me. Something about how I’m super fat, or you’re disappointed in me for falling off in the first place, it doesn’t have to be true, I don’t care, just jab at me! I need the prodding.
I have been lingering in the 170s for a good long time now. And I mean I have seen every single digit in those 170s. I’ve gotten so close to the border before, like down to 172, and then I sabotage myself with a bacon cheddar burger or a pizza. Then I always make up some dumb excuse not to exercise. I used to be all excited about that stuff =( I used to run out of time to do anything else because I was so busy exercising. Now I’m lucky to force myself outside.
Well, yesterday I picked up the reins again. I went out to TJ Maxx to buy a bathing suit. I was all prepared for it to be a terrible experience, because it’s bathing suit shopping after all. Nothing cheery about that. I wanted a specific sort of suit, something low or cut in the back to show my tattoo, I wanted a two piece, but not with bikini bottoms, I wanted little shorts. My mom found one but it was a size 10, and I mean it looked pretty freaking dinky for a size 10. But she made me try it on anyways. I did. And I loved it. I actually fit in it, and I looked decent. I was absolutely shocked! Sure not every part of me is perfectly toned, but I could pull it off, and that’s saying a whole lot!
So, that reinspired me. I hung my bathing suit on the refrigerator door, wrote a goal wait of 169 on my arm in black sharpie and “5k” on my other arm. I really need to stick with it this time and get these last forty pounds off. Help me bloggie buddies!
I really, REALLY need to start figuring out how to tone up my butt and the backs of my thighs, because they’re looking so miserable. I’ve lost 60lbs and I swear to you, NONE of it came off my ass or thighs. Any ideas for a good routine to work them out?
