Exactly what I need right now!
Had to get my ass out of bed at 5 this morning to fit in my exercise, but I did it! When my alarm went off I was like hell no, lol, but then I thought about my new clothes and I jumped out of bed. That makes 5 days in a row of exercise and I feel great. I’ve planned out all my food but dinner. The real test will be when/if I have to pick up my girls dad and bring him here because he always has me make the unhealthiest things in the world to eat, I plan to resist! He eats junk and somehow has muscles like a body builder it makes me so mad! He doesn’t even work out that often. Bah. Anyway I feel like jello and now I have to go to work and stand for 8 hours but I know it’s so worth it!
Still doing good! Exercised again this morning, I thought about not.. and then I thought why the hell not? I knew it would make me feel better and better about myself and what I was doing. I’m so glad I did. I feel so strong right now, # 1 because I haven’t eaten a cookie at work the past 3 days and believe me I’ve ate at least 1 cookie everyday I’ve worked for the past few months. #2 because I went to Carson’s to buy some new work pants because mine were ripped but I left with the pants, a mini dress ( :)!) a belt to wear with mini dress, a lacy shirt, and a hat lol. I bought the dress in a large because it was in the juniors so of course they were all so tiny lol thinking that maybe in about a month it would look good. Well I got home and tried it on and it already looked good! I am so excited about buying new clothes and actually wearing outfits instead of my old pants and whatever t-shirt was clean. I’ve decided that I’m going to buy clothes that are on the small side so I can be excited to fit in them and be surprised when they actually fit! Motivation for sure because I don’t want to buy clothes and never get to wear them. I’ll probably post a pic of me in my dress tomorrow because I’m entirely too lazy to do it tonight. I’ve stuck on my diet plan and decided I don’t care what the scale says because my body is changing regardless. Yay!
On the other hand, my favorite jeans still don’t fit, but there’s no reason for me to expect them to since when they did I was about 135. However, my friend agreed they were the cutest pair of jeans I’ve ever owned so I’m ecstatic about fitting back in them, again motivation is the key factor in keeping me on track. Another motivation I have is this HOT man that comes into work. I wish he would ask me for my number, lol. I know he kinda likes me but I’m not entirely sure about his relationship status. I’m hoping that losing some weight will give me the confidence to ask him. I’m actually an extremely conifident person and I flirt with him like crazy now, but I also know he thinks I am in a relationship because he’s seen me pregnant 3 times and I haven’t seen him very many times since I took the ring off my finger. This is kinda sneaky but he always comes in on Thursdays at about 5 so I’m just going to ‘happen to show up’ to talk to my girlfriend at work at about 5 on Thursday wearing my new outfit lol. I figure if you doesn’t ask me for my number or something in that dress he never will! Lol. Weird I know, but sometimes I guess we girls have to work a little at what we want.
Anyway at this point I’m in a bit of a drunken ramble and I shouldn’t have saved my calories for those couple of shots…… Haha. Anyway got my alarm set for a workout before work!
I’m up early to workout.. AGAIN! :)! These past couple months I haven’t went more than 1 day working out and that was maybe once a week so 3 days in a row is huge! I always know if I can just keep it up it will quickly become habit, because for about a year and a half between my first 2 pregnancies I did at least some kind of exercise everyday. Then after the second and then third it was like I totally lost motivation, well it’s back! I think I’m already looking better, maybe not really thinner, but I’m standing up straighter and make it a habit to hold my abs in… not suck in but, but have my abs tight so it gives the appearance that I’m thinner. I’ve been tempted by food and not given in. I’m feeling so confident right now that I know I will get it done this time. Yay yay yay. I have these jeans I can’t wait to fit because when I was smaller they were my favorites! So I think I’m going to get them out and try them on every few days to see how my body is changing because sometimes the number on the scale doesn’t change but my body is changing and I think that would be another good way to track my progress. :)!
Up ridiculously early. However, that gives me time to workout and shower before work. Something I’ve never really made time for before. I’m getting ready to do the 3 mile walk tape, I know they are easy but I’m not very good at keeping up with aerobic steps lol and they only have 4 moves. They also make me sweat like crazy so I know I’m getting in some good cardio. Probably going to do some squats or something afterwards. I already planned out my breakfast and lunch for the day and have an idea for dinner, but since I’m going to be having dinner with my mom I have to double check. She is also trying to lose weight so that makes it so much easier. Breakfast is a BMT muffin with egg whites from Subway which is where I work and a Greek yogurt. Lunch is a buffalo salad. Fail to plan and plan to fail as they always say, so I’m taking action against that! So excited for today. :)
