Say No to Cake

Hello! I'm a 20 year old, female physics major on a quest for some serious weight loss after a lifetime of being overweight. I'll be writing this blog as I go through my journey, so I hope you enjoy reading what I have to talk about and laughing at the funny pictures I find. I may not have a success story yet, but I have a lot of tips, so feel free to hit up that Ask Box with any questions you have. I have a lot to say, so I hope you enjoy reading! I have links to all my blog articles up above, so that you can read after they get lost in the Tumblr-verse.

Oh hey I’m back

Good afternoon to all my lovely followers. You probably noticed I’ve been away from tumblr for what seems like forever. I fell off the wagon pretty hard when school started - a change in routine is never easy. Well I stepped on the scale this morning and definitely didn’t like the number I saw. That just means I have to find the motivation to get back into it hard. Which isn’t easy - I’ve been in perpetual “my diet starts tomorrow” mode for the last week or two. It’s so hard to work nutrition and exercise into a busy schedule. Any and all help to get me back into it is appreciated!

Sorry I haven’t really been writing anything lately

Though I haven’t had much to write about; I haven’t had the greatest week so far. Excuses (and PMS - can I blame that?) are getting the better of me. I think I’m gonna try to at least break even this week and pick the motivation back up on Monday. :s

A little table to how to get rid of all that negative self-talk. We have to learn look at the good in situations too, instead of dwelling on things we can’t change- because you know what? We may not be able to change what is happening but we CAN change how we view it!

Me 50% of the time:I love to run. Green beans are amazing. Who needs cake when I can have strawberries. PROTEIN. Oh my god peanut butter. I have so much energy! This is my fourth bottle of water today. I love being healthy.
Me the other 50% of the time:I want to sleep for 6 years. When did my bed become heaven. Why did I eat 3 twinkies. I'm too lazy to put on a bra. Being a girl sucks. I don't feel like exercising.

So my trainer gave me a new routine today…

He says that changing it keeps my muscles from getting “used to” the exercises and therefore making less progress. So yay I guess. ‘scuse me while I don’t move for the next 48 hours.

It’s not about eating perfect, it’s about eating better.

Don’t drive yourself crazy with deprivation of things you love. Go ahead and have a cookie after dinner - just not a dozen. You may make progress a little bit slower, but you’ll stick with it a million times longer. I guarantee it.

My Life for the Past 24 Hours

Sorry for disappearing off the face of the Earth yesterday - I spent the whole day at Warped Tour! And it was AWESOME. But this isn’t a music blog so that’s all you get about that.

The cool thing is that it was a workout in itself. I am soooo sore today from all the walking and standing. I had been up a couple lbs yesterday morning after eating Olive Garden on my cheat day (which was delicious and well-earned, I might add), but then this morning I am down 0.2 from what I was Friday - a new low! Plus I’m pretty sure I’m retaining water from being out in the sun all day, so I’m seeing if that number goes down tomorrow.

People may be wondering why I weigh myself every day. Usually it’s “weigh once a week or you’ll drive yourself crazy with small fluctuations.” That’s true. But I also like to keep an eye on how different things affect me. If I’m up a few tenths, that usually means I should be drinking more water. Plus the scale’s right there next to the sink so it’s hard to resist hopping on just to see if I’ve made any progress.

Now I’m sitting down to a bowl of cottage cheese with a peach cut up in it. It is very yummy, I’d definitely recommend for a breakfast. Seeing my trainer tonight, and he says we are switching to a new plan at a higher level - eep. I expect I’ll be even sorer tomorrow.

I noticed that my followers keep increasing too - thank you guys for the support!
