Supersized Sammy

Went for a great walk/jog today - for the first time in weeks I’m not sick! I even got to see this pretty pink sunset as I looped back to head home.

Dinner was basil pesto penne with onion, mushrooms, artichokes and tomato… tasted way better than it looks, but next time I’m adding more mushroom! I made enough to freeze some for later in the week, trying to take lunch from home instead of getting a sub or sushi at uni. I’m sure my wallet will thank me for it!

Going back to weekly weigh-ins again now that I’ve managed to maintain 165lb (75kg) without weighing myself for a couple of months. Would love to reach my final goal by the end of the year, but realistically I see it taking a few months more. I’m actually quite happy with my current shape, so it’s fine with me :)

“I like clothes now. I have more energy. I sleep better. My sex drive is up. Blood’s flowing. I’m less susceptible to impulse. I’m in a different mode. When I was way out of shape, the idea of using whitening strips on my teeth seemed terrible. I have to do that every day? I’ll never do it. What you want is instant results when you’re out of shape. You want your teeth whitened in 45 minutes with the use of lasers. But when you’re in shape, you know it’s the result of doing a little bit every day. Moments aren’t just moments. A moment might be a week or a month. So instead of Boy, I’d love to eat this hamburger right now, I’m considering a little further into the future. I’m thinking, I eat that hamburger and that’s 1,200 calories, and I’m gonna work out tomorrow and lose 800 calories. I may as well eat a salad here, still do that workout, and then I’m actually making progress.” — Chris Pratt

This just motivated the fuck out of me.

Dear Beginning Fitblrs:

Taking your time to change and love yourself is a long and difficult process! BUT….you can do it! Not only is changing yourself a physical challenge its a mental one. Take your time to love yourself and take time to change the things you want to change. Its all about perseverance!

“You don’t have to feel beautiful to be beautiful.”

sometimes i wonder what i would think of my body if it wasn’t my own? like if someone else had my body and i was looking at it from an outside perspective? i think two things would happen… for one, i would have much nicer thoughts about it. and two, i actually just wouldn’t really care about it? because i don’t notice anyone else’s body in the way that i scrutinize my own. i wish i was better at remembering that. absolutely no one is as critical of me as i am of myself

You don’t always have to actively love yourself. Body positivity can be quite “forced smiles” about things sometimes, but if you’re having a crappy day try not to feel bad about the thoughts you’re having. Take a second to step back and look at the progress you’ve made, and at least appreciate that if you can.

Change, “I have to workout today” to “I GET to workout today”

It will help…a lot!
