Doing Everything and My motivational Pics!!!

Sunday, September 12, 2010

Why is it we get going, doing good, eating right, working out, then something in your life changes and then you feel like saying screw it? Thats where I am .. I'm so tired from getting up early and getting to work. Now I don't have time to put my all into working out like i was during the summer. My goal was to burn 2500 a week and i didn't even get to 1700. So I lowered my calorie burn to 2000 and maybe I can hit that this week coming up.. I also had to change my goal weight(Got down to 20 lbs lost Yeah!!) so my calorie range for my food went back down to 1200 and 1550.. Soooo I guess I just need to get my but in gear even if I'm tired and workout.. I do think that when I get a couple more weeks into working I will get used to getting my workouts in .. I know just from getting upearlier and eating breakfast at that time I lost 3 pounds last week.. I Guess I feel over whelmed with everything I have to get done. Working ,Taking care of my son, Cooking, Cleaning, laundry, and getting my workouts in.. I think I need some me time in there some where.. That would be nice.

Here is a pic of me when I was 19 I have up on my mirror for motivation. I know I won't look like this again but I would like to get down to this weight

This one is also one my mirror and all i can say is Yuck!! This was 20 pounds ago

This one was 16 pounds down

So I look at these everyday and I know where I want to be and i know where I don't want to go back to.. I know I won't give up There are Just times when I feel like it..

    Ronny, 20 lbs GONE? That is so emoticon


    I know it can be overwhelming when our schedules get changed around. I completely stopped exercising & barely went walking after my cousin moved in and became a roommate. TG she is now back in her own home again & I am getting back on track.

    If I can do it, YOU CAN DO IT!

    Don't be too hard on yourself and DON'T let it keep you down!
    You'll see, once things settle down, I KNOW you'll find a new routine that WILL include ME time.

    I LOVE ALL your motivation pix! GREAT idea!

    You will find a way to work it out. You said you need "me time". Make your work outs your special time. Maybe back off the intensity of the workouts during the work week so that you can fit it in and then on weekends, do more intense.

    You need to give yourself a break and take the time to adjust. This is life and you will always need to change things to make a healthy lifestyle fit.

    You can do this! You just need to be kind to yourself. It is gonna be ok.

    Yay Rhonda, grats on the 20 lb loss and having to set a new goal. Even the 16lb loss shows in the photos, good job.

    I love that you have your inspiration photo close to hand and are realistic in how you approach setting goals. Are you enjoying the journey now, or not quite settled into a routine that works for your lifestyle?

    Hope you've had a great weekend, keep up the good work! :)
