I have been getting so down on myself lately, and literally crying my eyes out. I'm usually not the type of person that wants attention from other people, but sometimes it helps me feel good, and know that I'm making progress.
I haven't posted a progress pic in a little while because I don't feel like there's anything to share. My clothes still fit the same, I look the same, my diet is very clean, I upped my water intake a lot compared to what I used to drink, I give everything I have plus a little bit more in my workouts, and I still feel like I'm the same. Trying to turn the thoughts around tonight with some #meditation and #yoga before I go to bed. Hopefully I will feel better after some sleep and a quick sweat sesh, I have an early flight to catch in the morning ✌🏼
For real! #foodmatters .
Growing up as a kid I hated eating healthy food. All there was in our house was JUNK. I mean when you grow up eating unhealthy food and processed foods that are supposed to be healthy, that's all you know. It becomes an addiction. Sugar. It's in every single thing we eat, and it's becoming harder and harder to avoid. But I believe with a little bit of hard work and elbow grease, it can be done. .
Day 6 of the #whole30 and I couldn't be anymore happy to be eating healthy, whole, quality foods! I never thought I would ever eat healthy and get healthy, it never crossed my mind until I watched my dad die of congestive heart failure.
I swear it feels like I haven't been out in the sunshine in AGES back in Ohio, now I just can't get enough! Spotted these pretty flowers and cacti while out and about today. I love it.
I haven't really been feeling up to par lately but being in a different environment, and getting some sunshine seems to be helping. Doctor vitamin D and sunshine, that's all I needed. ☀️✨
I felt so good and energized yesterday, but today I'm struggling to even keep my eyes open, and keep moving. Can't wait for this week to be over so the detoxing will be done too. Took it easy today and took a 30 minute walk, and did some Yin yoga. Tomorrow will be a better fitness day.
NSV: I haven't had this much water in my body in years. I've been trying so hard to hit my goal of 102 ounces for a very long time, and this is the closest I've been. I'm going to think being in Arizona has something to do with it.
Do y'all ever just have those days where you just hate everything? But you mostly hate your body? That's me today. I put in all this work with my workouts and nutrition....to just self sabotage. I do it all the time, and it's really hard not to when there's people around that enable my bad eating habits! It makes me angry knowing that I can change it, but I'm honestly struggling. It's crazy how someone sees a weakness in someone else, and will take advantage of that weakness instead of helping them grow past it, just because that person is comfortable with the way they are. In my opinion, being better than your comfortable self is more appealing than staying comfortable! 💯
I tell myself every day that I'm doing the best I can to change inside and out, but in all honesty.....nothing is going to change if the people around me are still doing the same things that keep me where I'm at. If you're in a relationship with someone, or are close with someone, then that person should encourage the change and be supportive of it, not help you sabotage your hard work! Anyway, if you're struggling like me today, let's turn it around and encourage ourselves not to give up! #wegotthis
For real! I'm too ready to get back into it. I'm still in a medicated fuzz, but I can tell my cold has dried up a lot since the first day.
Drinking some celery, apple juice, and planning out my meals for this week so I can hit it hard. I feel like it has been ages since I've had any physical activity, it's driving me crazy. Honestly, I haven't been sick in years so this came as a shock to me. But I didn't get down in my depression as bad as I would have years ago. Not gonna lie though, I did eat some "fat snacks" though. 🙄 just ready to put that behind me, and start the week off on a good foot tomorrow!
"You've got what it takes, but it will take everything you've got."
Words of truth right there. I've been fighting off a cold for the past 72 hours, and today's workout was not easy. I sweated most of the cold out last night, because when I woke up this morning my clothes were soaked! .
Day 3 of my hybrid is finished, and I'm a hot sweaty mess. It's cool though, I'm just happy I didn't have to miss any days so far this week 🙃
