Late night sweat sesh 💪🏽
Tonight I got in a good arm workout,
Even though I really didn’t want to go to the gym. A struggle of mine on this journey has been to not use the gym as a punishment (for eating bad or just feeling gross that day) but to treat it more like a therapy time to just focus on me. 💪🏽 As I keep pushing I feel more and more excited for what’s to come! I can already feel my arms getting stronger and dare I say.. a little toned? 🤭 .
Also just started my second job yesterday which why I got 13,000 steps today. Turns out getting your life together can be pretty exhausting 😅. Pray for me y’all. .
This #jacket here is partly to blame for me wanting to start this #weightlossjourney .
Here I was, all excited to go to my very first #comiccon so I could #cosplay#clarkegriffin from #the100 only to get the jacket and realize just how fat I've truly become. I could barely BARELY squeeze into this thing. And the worst part? I fell in love with the jacket so hard when it showed up in the mail and was ten times cooler than I'd ever dream it could be.
I want to be able to comfortably fit into this jacket. I don't want it to squeeze my arms like a blood pressure cuff. I want it to hang from my shoulders like it should and not stretch out to the sides like the Michelin Man. I don't want to be #ChubbyClarke . I want to be proud of my cosplay and not embarrassed I can't pull it off correctly.
This weight isn't me. It doesn't feel like the real me. And I've been frustrated and embarrassed long enough.
What is a "reason" for you wanting to lose weight?
Throwback Thursday is a lot more than just a few months for me; it's years & a lot of them at that. Since I was about 12 to be exact.
I've always struggled with my weight; being bullied at school, not being able to wear nice clothes cause they didn't have my size, being too embarrassed to wear shorts in the summer etc..
The first picture shows me at my biggest when I was 17/18. The 2nd is when I decided I wanted to lose weight & after years of living in leggings, bought my first pair of jeans! The 3rd picture shows me at my smallest, when I had lost almost 5 stone on my own through sheer determination. At this point I still thought I was fat, I was still conscious of people looking at me and calling me names but looking back now, I looked good😍 the 4th & 5th pictures show me creeping back up to where I was, where I do not want to be. It happened when I met my fiance. Now I'm not blaming him but I got comfortable, I had no one to please so why should I bother? How wrong was I! Looking at those photos I feel horrid☹
That's why I decided to try @slimmingworld for the 3rd time. The last picture is me on new years eve 2017. I'm not anywhere near where I want to be but I'm closer than I was on new year 2016 (photo 4). I'm not making this change for anyone else, I don't want to look good for anyone else and I don't want to be healthy for anyone else, I'm doing it for me, to make ME feel good about myself
You can't accomplish something for someone else, you need to be doing it and want it for yourself. Once you get to that point, you will succeed💜
I have lost 7KG! 🎉😮💃🏼 It’s come to the end of January and in just 4 weeks of hard work I have lost 7KG. My crash diet (of fruit, vegetables & water only) has officially ended and now I am beginning my permanent vegetarian diet. I am so happy with my new lifestyle of healthy eating and exercising. Bring on the next few months - I can’t wait to drop the other 13KG and reach my goal weight 💪🏻
hiii everyone! 🌙 today started off okay because i went to school and i knew that my friends and i were planing on eating salad for lunch.. but then one of my friends said she really wants sweet potato fries and so they agreed on going to another restaurant. That’s where the trouble began ⛈ so i was looking at the menu telling them that i’m not that hungry but they still insisted in me getting something.. so i ordered a small portion of sweet potato fries too (baked not fried, they had a burger with the fries) 🍠🍔 lucky for me the restaurant has a website with all the nutrition information. The portion i had was 297kcal 😨 i kinda can’t believe it but is says so... my total calorie intake today was ~1000kcal.. weight loss today was only -200g 😔 swipe to see lunch 🍴 #tomorrowwillbebetter#skinnyhereicome#hereicomeagain#skinny#fatfatfat#thickthighs#thinspiraton#skinnyin2018 💫 • pic not me • ⚡️
So I have finally decided to better myself and the way I feel. I have yet to lose 1 pound of the weight I gained when I was pregnant with Fiona. I am so uncomfortable in my own skin, and so tired of it. I want my confidence back! I want to feel good about myself, EVERYDAY! So, I have decided to start the 21 Day Fix program. I am going to eat heathy everyday and workout everyday. It’s time to do something for myself. I’m super nervous, but very excited. This morning I had my first healthy meal. 1 egg, 2 slices of turkey bacon, sautéed onion, on a whole wheat wrap with hot sauce to dip! Now I’m cooking up my veggie stir fry for the week and have all of my chicken grilled and ready to go! Wish me luck 😂 #21dayfix#letsgethealthy#skinnyhereicome
Ok so my little girl is still poorly and had me up from 1245-0300 so we both got up late.
Brunch you can call it - 3 ham and egg cups first time I've made them and they were the easiest fasted meal I have ever made!
Preheat oven (fan assisted 170)
Spray baking tins with fry light I use the coconut one. I used smoked ham they're quite large so created the perfect cup.
Crack one egg in each top with a bit of salt and pepper.
Oven cook for approx 8-12 mins depending on how you like your egg.
and WALLLAHHH 👌🏻💋 Wanted some speed to a little side bowl of salad with my naughty sweet chilli sauce of course. I'm not going to syn sauces when I have them on my salad as long as I don't go OTT 🙊 sometimes i tend to do that if mayo is involved *my bad*
