Hello, December. Goodbye, weight.
Day 12: Do you feel closer to your family around...
To the people not in my immediate family because I see them more during this time year and don’t usually see them for the rest of it. I don’t know why either we just don’t go and hang out with them ever. But with my immediate family I don’t really feel closer to them because I’m an only child so I’m always with them.
10 Healthy Late-Night Snack
Strawberry shake Blend kefir (it’s like a liquid yogurt), strawberries, and a teaspoon of honey for a refreshing protein shake that’s also chock-full of digestion-enhancing probiotics. Frozen blueberries A cup of the fruit is packed with vitamins, antioxidants, and more than 4 grams of fiber. For a richer snack, top them with a little light whipping cream. Yogurt cubes If you’re an ice...
You don’t love running when you first start because it hurts. Your legs hurt,...– Ben Davis
Life is going to beat you down, and people are going to make you cry, you’re going to toil day in and day out for your goals. And you’re going to fall flat on your face, many people won’t care and will rub salt in your wounds. You will feel powerless and like you can’t go on, because people are cruel and do not like to see others succeed. You will meet all kinds of people,...
Day 11: Do you like snow?
Snow and I have a major love hate relationship. When it’s nice and cool out like -15 c outside and the snow is just sitting there on the ground being pretty, I like it. But when it’s -30 c and gusting in my face I would much rather kill that bastard. Considering I live in Canada you all probably understand that I hate snow about 90% of the time.
Every single day losing weight is a battle. A battle to make the right choices, a battle to work out even though our muscles are sore and there are a thousand other things we’d rather be doing. But most of all, it’s a battle to not give up. Every day, it still seems like we’re so far from our goal weight and it takes all of our willpower to keep going, to not give in. This...
Day 10: Do you like giving away Christmas cards?
To be honest I never really have. Like I’ve never taken a picture and put it on one and then sent it around to everyone I know. I’ve only ever maybe bought one for someone like a teacher or something. But I suppose I do because it makes people feel a little more special :)
For the school dances that you looked terrible at. For the boy who didn’t think you were good enough. For the summers you spent in sweatshirts, hiding. For the dressing room mirrors that witnessed your meltdowns. For every compliment you couldn’t take seriously. For those who expect you to fail. But most importantly, for you; to feel happy, confident, and healthy.
Can someone in my family order the Larabar variety...
Reached my 3rd goal weight today!
Weighed in at 119.8. Only .2 below it but hey, I’m still freaking happy as can be! I feel like having a treadmill now will help finish off these last 7 pounds fairly quickly because I’ll be running probably 6-7 days a week. But if they do come off slowly that’s okay too, I understand that weightloss isn’t a race anymore and that I have to just go with the flow because it...
Reblog this if you love running.
I wouldn't have said this back in September when I...
But I really want abs. Not like full out six pack because I find that a little odd on girls but I would love some defined ones! When I started I just wanted to be skinny and look good. But throughout all of this I’ve learned I have to love myself and be happy. I want to be PROUD of my body, not just look good. I want to say “I earned my body” and I think having defined abs would...
Did I mention they started selling Larabars where...
Day 9: What are your favorite Christmas songs?
I don’t know, that’s hard. I like the more modern ones. I love baby it’s cold outside and let it snow a lot. But there are so many I like that I can’t think of right now.
Ah, bought the treadmill. So, so happy. Just went...
Uhg, today my mom asked me how much weight I've...
And I didn’t want to tell her because she would probably tell me to stop if she knew I’d lost 15 pounds so I just kind of told her I didn’t know. Then she asked me how much I weigh now so I had to tell her and she told me to not lose much more. But I’m still going to my goal whether she likes it or not. It’s a normal BMI and I’m doing it the right way.
Day 8: Do you think of Christmas as more than just...
Yes, definitely! I mean these past few years I’ve learned that because I’ve gotten older. But also because my family’s money has been a lot tighter so we haven’t gone insane on gift giving, usually about 1-3 things per person overall. Plus we do secret santa among the five of us. I like christmas because of the awesome feeling I get. I love buying presents for other people...
I have an appointment tomorrow to go check out a...
Yay, super happy and excited. It’s supposedly a really nice treadmill that’s only being sold for $500, how awesome is that? The people said that they bought it new for $2,000. Hoping this works out and that I have a treadmill soon!
Day 7: What age did you stop believing in Santa...
I think it was probably around eleven but I had a feeling ever since about second grade when one of the kids in my class came in and said that there was no santa claus and that your parents are the ones that put everything under the tree. I mean I was sad when I heard that, I was like 8. But yeah I probably finally just stopped saying I believe in him around 10 or 11ish.
Inches are lost in the Gym. Pounds are lost in the...
Uh, today was quite shit.
I ended up eating way to much because I was baking. I had like three cookies and a brownie.. And they weren’t small either. Agh. So mad. Just got to keep thinking positive and not let it get to me. Got to keep going and not worry about it.
Day 6: What do you usually do for Christmas?
On Christmas Eve my family and I usually go over to my moms best friends house because their family always has a huge Christmas party and we are basically part of there family. Then we come home and open one gift, which is always, and always will be, Christmas pajamas to wear that night. Then in the morning, we wake up, wait for my step brothers to come over (unless they’re already over)...
6 food tips to shrink your tummy
Eat more fiber: Eating a combination of soluble and insoluble fiber is an effective way to stay regular and avoid the bloated feeling that comes with constipation. Cut down salt: Salt as a direct impact on your body fluids levels. Too much salt can contribute to edema and bloating, puffing-up your belly. Watch your sodium levels intake; it shouldn’t go over the recommended 1500 mg a...
Oh god. Tomorrows going to be hard.
I’m going to be baking all night for a bake sale I’m running the next day and I’m going to be with three other girls. I’ll have to have a lot of will power and the ability to tell them “No, I really DO NOT want that cookie, so stop telling me it’s okay to eat it. Thank you.”
