I had a whole post written about how I need to get back on the wagon and a few excuses to go with it. Basically a repeat of last week’s post.
Well I’m not going to bitch and whine (too much) about how I need to get back on the wagon and yadda yadda.
I know I need to do it and I know what I need to do. I have been doing this for over a year now. So I know I can do it.
I will do it and I will be amazing at it! I have to, there is no other option. It’s as simple as that.
If I want to continue losing weight, I will eat healthy.
If I want to be healthy, I will drink my water.
If I want to be fit, I will exercise daily.
No more of this halfassed shit. It’s stupid and I don’t like the way I feel about myself when I halfass it.
It’s all or nothing.
This week I’m not setting any goals. It may sound like a bad idea, but right now I just want to do something. I don’t want to set a ton of goals and get mad at myself when I don’t accomplish some of them.
So this week, any step in the right direction is a win.
I’m going to unleash my inner rockstar and rock this out!
I have to!
I’m going to be honest:
• I haven’t ran since the beginning of June before I injured my leg.
• In fact I haven’t done ANY sort of activity since then. (Wait, does walking around in the pool, drinking beer count?)
• I haven’t religiously tracked my food in a week.
• I haven’t had a decent meal since last Thursday.
• The only June goals I’ve completed are the ones not pertaining to weight loss. (Be awesome, start a writing project, and hang out with Jared more)
• I gained 3lbs this past week due to everything I haven’t been doing.
I’m not going to lie, I’m still not feeling any of it. Not sure what my deal is. It’s like my motivation packed it’s bags and took off to a better destination. (Can’t really blame it, we’ve had horrible storms lately.)
This is honestly the first time since starting Weight Watchers that I’ve gotten really bored with it. Which is my own fault. I haven’t switched up anything or tried new recipes in a really long time. So that’s what this next week is going to be about. I’m going to try new things and get excited about this awesome journey all over again.
I haven’t set weekly goals in ages, so I’m going to start there. I need those things to hold me accountable. And I’m going to reward myself if I obtain all my goals. It’s been awhile since I’ve done that too. Plus, that will give me some motivation to accomplish these things!
• Run 3-4 days this week
• Track everyday!
• Cook dinner at least 3 nights this week
• Try a new recipe
• Complete first week of Smart Girls Do Dumbbells
• Not consume a 6pack of Woodchuck
• Keep doing Janel’s 30 Day Journal Challenge. (I’m having A LOT of fun with this.)
So there you have it, some honesty about my lack of motivation and how I’m going to change it.
*EDIT: I forgot to mention my reward! If I make all my goals, I’m going to buy myself a cute pair of heels. I need some for my Operation Sexification goal!
What do you do when you’re lacking motivation?
It’s Friday! Woot! And I’ve survived 3 days without Twitter or Facebook so far!
Ready for some Fun Loving Friday fun?
Today I want to talk about my sister, Tracey. Or Sissy Linn as I so lovingly call her. )
She’s my best friend in the whole entire world. Which hasn’t always been the case. When we were younger we wanted to kill each other, then we grew up. Now we live together, at least until she moves in August. *sniffle sniffle* I’m going to miss my sister.
Things I love about Sissy Linn:
*Her amazing sense of style
*Her odd sense of humor
*How she knows what I’m thinking with just a look
*She brings me home Cold Stone ice cream
*Our rocking out to Paramore on roadtrips
*She’s my concert buddy
*How she’ll do my hair and makeup when I ask nicely
*Her need for new shoes monthly…sometimes weekly ;o)
*Making mom faces together
My sis and I also have all sorts of great memories together. Some of my faves:
*Getting matching tattoos by a lady with an eye patch
*Smoking cigars together
*Getting her drunk when she was 14
*Fun with crazy Halloween wigs
*Getting lost in Milwaukee on our way to see No Doubt in concert
*Meeting Say Anything
*Her playing ‘Downloading Porn with Dave-o’ by The Moldy Peaches at my graduation party
*True Blood marathons
*Eating a whole bag of Tootsie Pops in a few short hours together
*Being soccer moms at my brother’s baseball and basketball games
*And about a million more!
She’s awesome and I love her! Now I patiently wait for her to turn 21 so we can hit up the bars together. )<div class="wp-caption alignnone" style="width: 650px"
