This is a bit of a transparent post for me. But I told yall I would keep it real with this baby weight stuff so here goes.
I have been having a hard time with the scale, I have been having some NSV’s up this point but those stopped shortly after I returned to work.
Yes, I have a lot on my plate literally and figuratively, yes there are a LOT of things going on. This should *not* be a deterrent to getting back where I want to be.
I suppose what I am saying is that I need to get back to basics.
I am not eating healthy.
I am working my tail off at the gym, getting stronger by the day, lifting heavier, pushing harder.
I read one time that weight-loss is 80% diet 20% fitness. If I am not taking an active step to better eating, then I am going to be stuck running in place for a very long time.
I am not eating a lot of takeout; I cut out the fast food ages ago.
I am however, eating bread and rice like it’s going out of production next month.
This needs to end, I am going to take small steps to reduce my carb intake this week and see if it makes a difference in the scale and my clothes.
I am no longer being crazy about getting this weight off in a certain time. I have thrown those dates right out of the window. Now this is for me, my health, my kids, and my husband and my wardrobe.
I adore this blog and the blogging world because I can see that I need correction in this area, it’s just finding the will inside of me to be strong and do what I need to do.
I still have around 12 pounds to go before I am at pre-pregnancy weight, but my first goal is 5 pounds. Since I am on team small, my 5’3 frame reflects those 5 pounds pretty well. I also know that 5 pounds will indeed make my pants fit comfortably again. If it takes me 5 weeks or 5 months to drop those first five pounds I will be happy. I just want to make sure I am doing every last bit in my power to make it happen. I won’t sabotage my workouts by mindlessly eating. I will make a better effort.
That’s right for the first time in 3.5 months I did not attend the gym not once last week. Some of the days were on purpose some were not. However, my body must have needed the break because I am raring to go this week!
How are your fitness goals going, any tips for me to drop those first five?
