I just don't wanna go to the gym to work out. I would much rather be a couch potato, watch TV all day and eat bon bons.
I just don't wanna count my calories. I would much rather throw away all the measuring cups and just eat to my heart's content.
I just don't wanna eat my vegetables. I would rather eat french fries and add lots of ketchup, that should count as my vegetable servings.
I just don't wanna drink water. I would rather sip on a Starbucks Venti peppermint hot chocolate with whole milk and lots and lots of whip cream.
I have had a lot on my mind lately and still feeling overwhelmed, but as much as I want to throw everything out, I haven't. Since Tuesday, I've been waking up every day not feeling motivated to do anything especially when it comes to diet and exercise, but I've been doing it anyway. For some reason going to the gym sounds like a Herculean effort, so I've been walking with my husband in the evenings or working out with a video. And I count my calories/points even though it's a pain in the butt! However, when I wake up in the mornings there are no regrets of what I did the night before because I've been doing all the things I need to do to lose weight, get fit, and be healthy.
That's the test, to do the things that need to be done whether you like it or not. I lost only half a pound this week, but I'm okay with that. I'm losing inches faster than I'm losing weight. I wore my denim long shorts yesterday and they were loose on the hips, they are not snug anymore and my arms are getting more toned and smaller! I look back at my previous weight losses and I always tend to lose inches quicker than losing weight, mainly because I always do a lot of strength training. I've been told by a trainer that if I continue to do what I'm doing, I'll eventually see more weight loss on and of course no more binging!
