Good afternoon World!
I’m not going to go on for long in this first post. Once again I find myself trying to curb my appetite and waist-line because after a good almost year of being content with my progress, I have ballooned once more. Within the past year that I have been off, I have graduated, gotten a new job, and gone back to my truck-driver eating habits.
That is all I am in the mood for sharing today.
See y’all later.
Hey there blogosphere world. I have been AWOL for the past week due to final exams, an abundance of work, and Mother’s Day Shenanigans. I am proud to say that I am down four pounds to 181lbs in total and am starting to feel some minor changes in my everyday gait.
I have started going back to the gym on a regular basis, doing my cardio and strength training on alternative days. I am trying to keep doing ab workouts on a daily basis. In the past my grandmother used to tell me that I need to work on my abs in order to work on my posture and it is beginning to pay off a little. Although I am still prone to slouching when I am not focusing on my posture (like I am doing at the moment), I have begun to pay more attention when I am in public or walking around with a backpack on my shoulders to the way I am standing.
On the first day I went back to the gym, I decided to go to my old, intense Zumba class. Not a particularly great idea on my part, as it led to a lot of cramping the next day which made climbing the numerous stairs at my house and school a bit of a challenge. However, I do not regret diving head-first into achieving my goals because I am sick of not feeling my best.
On the agenda for today is help work on the cleaning-out of the basement, do laundry, and exercise (weight training at home and Zumba tonight at the gym). For now, I think I will start with a banana smoothie for breakfast.
Have a wonderful Tuesday everybody!
I feel a little bad because I have already had a minute stumble. Yesterday I really messed up my eating schedule. At work I ate a chocolate croissant which ended up being my breakfast and lunch along with a bottle of water. I had to catch a study group at school afterword which ended up lasting from 4:30pm-10:30pm. I had a bottle of water and a granola bar with me which was pretty good. However, I ended up finally getting dinner at 11:30pm from a local diner which consisted of a burger with lettuce, tomato, and feta cheese as well as french fries. At the same time I am proud of myself because I only ate three french fries and gave the rest to my friends.
Tomorrow I begin my 12-week diet challenge and my old exercising regimen. Hope things start to look better.
These shall be my daily musings and vents as I traverse the world as I change my eating and exercising habits. Over the past three years I have increased my weight from 150lbs to 185lbs. I am in the midst of figuring out the root of my issues and working hard to curb them before any health issues arise in my life. I hope that in the future I will be happier with what I am doing and achieve the goals I set for myself. If I misstep or fall far from my goals, I shall try even harder to achieve my next goal.
This week I am still 185lbs and hope to be 183lbs this time next week. I am a commuter college student who works in a bakery, surrounded by a lot of temptations. This week I shall start to phase breads out of my diet as well as sugar drinks.
I hope I make it.
Have a blessed day all!
