Just to be able, not so much on tumblr, but in real life have people notice a change, not just in my weight, but a healthy glow, positive attitude, active lifestyle, and want that too, and I can be that person to be able to give them truly healthy advice on how to get there, and have myself as proof to the fact it works.
Present moment of laziness: 1 seconds, 1 hour, 1 day maybe. But being healthy for the future, that’s forever.
Wouldn’t you rather have created a habit to crave healthy foods for your body, rather then having to constantly feel like your denying yourself the junk food you’re craving right now?
Had a bad weekend? Maybe got drunk with the girls then had to have that McDonald’s greasy breakfast to soak up the alcohol? That’s fine, what will 2 days in 365 do to stop it being YOUR year? Nothing!
Maybe one of my favourite motivational quotes. Hint: Each day / week change your desktop / phone background to your most inspiration picture, that way you are constantly being reminded, and hey, it might get you out running instead of facebooking!
Wow, this picture just hit me big time for some reason, like why do we all have to loath this journey to loosing weight / getting fit / getting healthy? I mean it’s really quite interesting! Crazy, hard, painful, makes-you-want-to-cry sometimes, but really it’s a new challenge everyday so why not see the fun side in that?
Having a bad night, needed to read this right now. And tomorrow, and every other time it just seems too hard.
I love buying cute underwear / bra sets, like crazy. I have more then clothes I think and they’re so cheap! I went into Kfart yesterday and saw the cutest matching sporty looking pair and went to buy them then stopped. Thought to myself ‘But you won’t even look good in these?’ Then attempted to stop those negative thoughts and replaced it with ‘Ahhh but you soon will’. That’s when I decided, I WILL buy these, but only once I hit my first goal weight of 121pounds, then I will reward myself with them, and have something to strive for. And hey, I WILL look better in them buy then anyway!
No more dieting! I can DEFINITELY say this from experience as a nutter when it came to counting calories, takes over your life, doesn’t really make you eat any HEALTHIER foods, and drives you nuts being constantly on your mind.
This is very true, and sometimes where I… and probably most people struggle. E.g having a burger and chips for lunch then coming to dinner and thinking ‘Well I’ve already messed up today so that’s just unfixable’. Well It’s not the case, say we did this six times a month, ate burgers and chips for lunch… Well then we would be eating 6 meals we regret a month, but if we follow it up with dinner, then that’s 12 meals a month we’re going to be regretting. Twice the fat, twice the salt, twice the sugar, twice the unhealthiness all because we thought it was too late.
So, if you hate running but love dancing? Don’t do five days of running just because you think it’s the best option and hate it everyday, you’re more likely to loose motivation. Swap 2, 3, all the days even, for dancing, or whichever and if you love it, you will crave it, you will WANT to do it. And in my experience, I exercise better doing the things I love. This also applies to food, don’t force down those horrid Brussels sprouts when you know you love lettuce!
