Since there are roughly 3 weeks left in the semester, I thought I would start a daily goal thing from here until the the end of finals (I’ll continue over the summer/if i like it/depends on how my goals change)
In the morning or early afternoon I’ll post my goals for the day like so:
2 liters of water. (Made it to 1, and a couple glasses of tea.)
100 squats. 50 reps with hand weights. Run a mile. Salt water flush.
and at the end of the day, I’ll check/cross off what I accomplished! I’m hoping this will keep me more accountable. As you all know, I’ve been slacking.
Keep it up! Bikini season is right around the corner!
I feel miserable.
I can feel myself gaining weight.
I stopped working out because of opera and then started stress eating and I honestly just stopped caring about everything fitness related.
Today is my last day of freedom on Spring Break, so tomorrow bring on the routine. I’m starting over Insanity and I’m gonna lose these last 20 lbs, dammit.
I didn’t get my belly button pierced to wear a onesie this summer!
I just don’t understand why I wouldn’t just commit and drop the last 20 lbs if I could, which I can.
Okay. Time to stop bitching and go grocery shopping.
HOLY CRAP GUYS.
I don’t know where all of you lovely followers came from, but WOW. Hi, my name is Joey! :)
Christmas break is officially over, and I am heading back to Charlotte today. Guess what that means? TIME TO GET BACK IN THE GYM.
Ugh, I am just so excited you don’t even know. I haven’t worked out once over this break and I’m starting to crave it. This is the semester I will finally reach my goal weight.
20 lbs, and 5 months until 2013. SO PUMPED.
I hope everyone has had an awesome successful break.
Stay beautiful and motivated. <3 Joey.
Hey guys! I wanted to show you my list of small goals for the entire month of December.
- No french fries.
- No condiments (ketchup, ranch, ect)
- Work out at least once a day, if not twice.
- No soda.
Not many, but only a few small things to keep in mind so I can stay on track this December during finals, and then when I go home and can’t grocery shop for myself.
I hope you all are having a wonderful, motivated December!
oh my goodness hi all of you lovely new followers!
I just wanted to introduce myself :)
I’m Joey! I’m a music major at UNC Charlotte in North Carolina.
I decided to start losing weight to help my music carreer, lets face it, I can totally still be an opera singer without being overweight! :) I knew it would help my breathing and my posture and everything else, so I decided to lose weight.
I lost the first 30 lbs in about 4 months. I worked out hard and portioned my meals. (I don’t eat as healthy as I should since I live on campus and I have to eat campus food.) I portion control like crazy, and I make sure to eat as healthy as I can when it is possible. Lots of chicken and veggies and not as many carbs, ect.
I have been totally slacking this semester, and so I haven’t been dropping weight like I would like. It’s been a total pain in the ass, and with all this stress (I am in 11 classes and 18 credit hours) I binge more than I should.
I am here with no judgement, and I just want to encourage everyone and hopefully get some encouragement in return. I love sharing ideas and different things that have worked for all of you!
I just want all of us to get this weight off and be the happiest we can possibly be!
Don’t be afraid to talk to me <3
I have been so shitty lately. I’ve been so stressed and busy and all I do is eat. Not healthy stuff either, just junk, and I’ve been so busy that I haven’t been to the gym or worked out at all in over a week. I just feel so shitty about myself.
It really is time to get back on track.
I’ve said that so many times this semester.
But here is my plan. I have 130 dollars left on my campus money. The main reason why I’m eating so much is because I’ll only go spend my campus money at Wendys and snack places and Starbucks and blahblahblah. So instead, I’m going to go to the student store and buy chicken, beef, veggies, fruits, whatever I need too with that student money and spend as much as I can. Hopefully all of it. That way, I won’t be able to go to Wendys or other fast food places on campus, I will be FORCED to cook with what I have in my kitchen.
I also can’t make excuses about the gym anymore. I felt so good about myself when I was going. I can’t give up on that.
How does this sound? I think I can commit to this. I know being out of student money will really help me quit eating so poorly.
If anyone has any other advice or tips, PLEASE message me :)
Shaved 2 more minutes off of my mile! I’m officially at 11 minutes. Eeeeeep!
So excited I can’t even believe it.
I did so good yesterday! Not just as far as eating, and exercise, but everything!
I did more packing, and I practiced my opera.
I completed everything on my to do list.
I didn’t eat a single thing from fast food, or have dessert after dinner! and I cut down my mile to 13 minutes! I’m sure I could get it down lower, I just walked more than usual since it’s been a while since I ran. When I first started outdoor running at the beginning of the summer, it took me anywhere from 20-25 minutes to finish a mile. I’m so proud of myself it’s ridiculous.
Hopefully I can be that productive again today.
From now on I’m just taking it one day at a time.
