Scaring myself

Sunday, May 15, 2011

So I have been a complete failure in this whole weight loss thing. I went all strong and lost ten pounds then I started slacking. Not slacking because I felt I 'owed' myself but not having the energy to get up. So I devised a plan today one where I have something to lose if I don't do what I set out to do.

I love this show called "Pretty Little Liars" yeah, I know. I'm 27 so invested in teen drama it could choke a whale but it's what it is. The second season starts the 14th of June, that will be 30 days (starting on Monday) till the show airs. I'll work hard five or six days and do a couple things on the off days to keep it going but if I skip days where I don't do anything, I won't watch that week's episode.

If I only work out like 22 days out of the 30, I would have to make those eight days up, thus skipping an episode. I'll have a couple or so episodes to catch up on but the bad side would be not being with the fans oooing and awing over what is happening. Like a joke someone told and you get it 10 minutes later. I don't want to be that girl.

I want to watch with the fans so I have to do this or I won't be able to. It's the only thing in m I'm not planning on working out every day, maybe 5 or six days a week. I told myself if I slacked off, where I don't work out, I would have to make that up. My goal is to work out my life that scares me to lose ( I have no life, seriously). I have to start drinking the amount of water I did before, that's another thing that can stop me from watching my show. I have to drink every last drop before I can watch.

Nothing else is working, I need that push. I'll really feel like a failure if I couldn't do it for a show I love. 12 days missed, 12 episodes I have to catch up on. I want to be laughing, gasping and yelling, 'OH DANG!' in a smaller body. Also I would be able to start running without having to pull down my tops to hide the fat coming out, pulling down my shorts because they're riding up.

It is about my health as much as it's about looking good in clothes. I want to wear stomach-baring tops without worrying about anything I don't want there. My legs are getting smaller, the fat around my knees are going away, my calves aren't jiggling when I walk, it's only the inner thigh region that's rubbing together.

My rules:
I will not look at the scale until the challenge is over, something to celebrate while I watch the first show or a handful back to back.

I will stay away from sugary-based drinks, no caffeine!

I will look in the mirror and say how worth it I am every day.

I will not be a Debbie Downer and say mean things to ruin a good mood.

I will not stress.

I will not back out of this quest!

I want to be able to wear a pretty dress come the forth of July. If 10 pounds came out of working a few weeks and some time off see how it will go away with constant work.

    This sounds like a great way to motivate yourself! Sometimes its hard not to stay on track, when that happens it important not to get mad at yourself, instead get back on the right track and keep going!
