no image has ever described my life quite so well
So today I am starting a Slow Carb Diet, incorporating 3-4 days of exercise.
Slow Carb Diet Rules
1: Avoid white carbs
2: Eat the same few meals over and over again
3: Don’t drink calories
4: Don’t eat fruit
5: Take one day off
I am going to update every Thursday with my weight loss and how I’m feeling. This is just for me but if you want to chime in now and then feel free to :)
Starting Weight (7/18/2013): 157lbs
Lately I’ve been feeling tired, I haven’t been able to get up out of bed earlier then 8am and I have no motivation. I feel chubby, chubbier than I normally do unfortunately :( I’ve gained about 10-15lbs since I moved home from Australia and I don’t like that!!
So let’s see how this goes!
Can’t believe I’m posting these but BEFORE
Wow, I have been updating this every now and then with pictures but I haven’t actually been focusing on being healthy at ALL. Right now I’m the heaviest I’ve ever been at 155 and it’s really getting me down. I just eat so horribly and haven’t been going to the gym as much as I should. I tell myself to stop eating unhealthy but then I go to Subway or I get some chips while grocery shopping, it’s like I have no willpower or determination anymore and it’s getting very depressing. Also, not being able to fit into old clothing is very depressing as well :(
SO on that note I am going to make a U-turn and change things up. My diet needs a significant overhaul, I need to think about what I’m eating before I put it in my mouth. I need to start going to the gym more and developing a routine, no more pushing things to tomorrow or next week because I’m too busy.
Things that need to change:
-energy level, I am always very tired
-routine, GET TO THE GYM!
After gaining ten pounds so far in 2013 I will be the first to admit that it’s not fun! Although eating unhealthy food may taste so good at the time I always feel so depressed after. Noticing things getting tighter, breathing getting worse and seeing the weight going up are all factors that tell me that what I am doing is unhealthy and unnatural for my body.
It is time to change that! Two summers ago I was the healthiest that I have ever been and it made me SO happy, I want to feel that way again.
