Hey you guys, stopping by quickly for a personal update, for a Prawn update, for a blog update, and for a quick question.
Let’s get to it!
Start Weight – 264.8 lbs
Weight This Morning – 157.4 lbs
Lowest Weight – 152.0 lbs
So yesterday morning I weighed 162 lbs… what a drop just one day of eating right and working out does! Wooooah.
So yesterday I actually stuck to my guns. I didn’t eat anything after dinner (I had my protein shake after my workout and that’s it.)
Even though, I was a teensy bit hungry. I kept telling myself I had a good workout so I could afford to eat a chicken thigh after I got home. Or an egg or egg whites or something. But I totally resisted the urge and wasn’t starving.
& I know this morning I would have REALLY regretted it, so I am thankful I actually stuck to my commitments to myself, was strong and did well.
This morning there were blueberries on the counter and I justified to myself ‘well my personal trainer says it’s ok to have like half a cup of blueberries… no big deal’ but I resisted and DID NOT EAT THEM! :D You see though? I made an excuse to stray off my diet and then remembered the snowball effect, and told myself, no excuses! Stay the course!
Willpower! I can do it!
Feeling extremely motivated, just have to keep it up. I’ll update you along the way, as usual.
Start Weight – 354 lbs
Weight This Morning – 241.8 lbs
Lowest Weight – 241.8 lbs
So you know how I keep saying Prawn is joining the gym, Prawn is joining the gym, Prawn is totally going to join the gym this time…
Well he finally did! Prawn joined the gym and has gone every two days for a week straight! Also, would you believe (and this is SUPER exciting) he has hit a weight low! THE SCALE IS FINALLY MOVING FOR PRAAAAAWN! After almost 8 MONTHS OF WEIGHT STAGNATION!
I knew all it would take is to cut out rotisserie chicken, dairy, and work out. Easier said than done… and he has done it! Let’s pray for consistency and hope he sticks with it!
Prawns is totally catching up to me! Oooh darn, guess I’ll have to keep up with the effort I put in yesterday. Stay focused. I don’t know if I can accept him beating my weight low! Not cool! :)
Would you look at that, my competitive side is peeking through. Tsk tsk.
Have you guys checked out my new ‘Fitness Progress’ page? It has been a month since I started training with my personal trainer and tracking my weight lifting progress. I have some pretty impressive numbers there ;)
For instance, my leg press weight going from 80lbs to 220lbs in the span of A MONTH. Pretty proud of that. I wonder if a month from now I’ll be up to leg pressing 360lbs… that would be crazy!
So I’m a little nervous about this one. I want to market myself (obviously) for the female bodybuilding, fitness modelling thing I have dreams of doing, but I’m not sure how.
I want to keep up with this blog, obviously, and I hope it helps you guys sometimes. I know it helps me.
I was wondering… and I know this sounds SO SILLY, really…
OK I’ll just ask, seriously, should I make a facebook page? Like a facebook page where I give daily tips, and talk to you guys through a different social media site than just this blog stuff? Motivational pictures, quotes, tips and what have you. Would you follow me on facebook if I added that to my ‘repertoire’ so to speak?
Just curious, would you? Why or why not? Would you invite all your friends? ;)
I would hate to make a page and then have my mom be the only one who follows me, which seems very possibly something that would happen…
Also, any opinions on ways to market myself? Am I marketable? Bah. Prawn says I am.
