Starting weight: 222.5 Pounds
I’m back! ( I think?)
I have been trying to get back on this healthy path again. I mentioned awhile back that I have a couple of pinup contests this summer. One I was not in (a runner up) that has came and went, one in about a week, and then the big one summer spectacular in August! My dress for the show in August has came in it’s way out of my comfort zone as dresses go but I plan to rock it none the less that means losing a few pounds between now and then is my goal.
I had all intentions of starting this Monday: I would weigh in, make a good breakfast, go for a walk/workout around the lake before it got too hot, meal prep for the week and a good refueling lunch.
Let’s just say all but working out made the list today.
My monthly visitor is here and it reared it’s ugly head in my direction big time. I suddenly felt really exhausted, and had a massive headache develop on the side of my head. I usually have odd symptoms during it so I just drained all of a sudden. I took it as an indicator not to go on a walk so I made a smoothie, drank plenty of fluids and laid back down.
As I always say: Listen to your body is key.
After a two hour nap, I got up ran my errands, prepped my lunch for work tonight (adult lunchables this week), oats for breakfast tomorrow, and I made a salad for lunch with the rest of smoothie as well.
I almost wanted to scrap the idea of starting this again until after my cycle but then I thought what a better time to do it because I tend to want to really cheat when I am on my cycle you know more sweets and carbs. I want to prove to myself that I can do it!! I didn’t buy any chocolate when I did my small grocery run so I consider that a small victory for me. Lucky for me I only have a short cycle (3 days) I know I can do it!
Weighing in was really hard because this is the most I’ve weighed in a long time. It’s a hard pill to swallow but I won’t let it get me down! I have made some smaller goals to help aid in my success!
I am still doing a loose based Keto for my diet, I have been trying to find more recipes to try out. I haven’t brought bread since April which has been a bit of a game changer for me but I am a carb queen but I’ve noticed that I don’t miss it as much as I thought I would. I do give into sandwiches and stuff during my cheat days.
Anyways, I am hoping the rest of the week is better than Monday! I will end this post with a break down of my goals!
*Loose 5 pounds by July 21st
*Start walking again
*Go to the Y at least once a week
*Less pop and junk
*Loose 10 pounds by the end of July
Final end goal lose: 20 pounds by August 25th
I really want to make this happen! I just got to hang in there and remember my why’s!
I will be back doing weekly check ins to keep myself accountable!
See you in a week!
