Well that was fun…

25 Aug

I guess I should update this baby on whatever progress I have made.

So last time I wrote about how nothing was motivating me to lose weight. Well, that changed! For maybe a few months… I joined the Dietbet.com craze and ya know what? It effin’ worked! There’s nothing I love more than food besides MONEY! If you haven’t heard of this site it’s where you can join a bet with other dieters online for a set wage. You have one month (in this dietbet’s case) to lose 4% of your body weight. Any person who reaches that goal wins money from the pot! It sounds a bit sketchy, I get it, but there are many rules and ways to prevent cheating.

So I tried that for a couple months and lost 17lbs! In the morning I would do Jillian Micheal’s 30 Day Shred, which helped build muscle, and then after work I would run. My ultimate goal is to run a half marathon; I got up to 4 and some change miles. I did really well for a while – and then I went on vacation… Unfortunately I have gained about 8lbs of those back, and continue to shove pringles into my face. I must admit I feel so much better keeping off about 10lbs from March. My clothes are fitting better and my overall attitude is a bit better. I need to keep it up thought – I haven’t really exercised since May when I went on vacation and seeing pictures of myself makes me feel like I haven’t accomplished much.This hot weather is making me want to go running less and do less because I hate over-heating. (oh, I am full of excuses)

I’m considering doing another dietbet, which will put me back under 200lbs and help me get rid of this extra blahness that I feel. I’m just nervous that I won’t find the motivation this time like I did before. An ex-boyfriend of mine is currently in prison (shocking by my previous posts, right?!) and we’re talking a lot about getting back together – I’m trying to use that as some motivation so when he comes out I am not some slob; especially because he works out twice a day (since he has nothing else to do). I’m starting to look at these thinner girls and just think how much I’d be okay with looking like that. HAHA. You know what I mean – I feel like I would be so much more comfortable with myself.

Ugh, one day I will get motivated again and this blog will be bursting with joy and happiness! Until then.. wish me luck!

A Journey of a Thousand Miles Begins With One Donut

6 Mar

Seriously – why is finding motivation to exercise and lose weight and become a more healthier citizen in this healthy-crazed society so difficult!? It’s almost like my body is revolting, or my mind, against the man.

Nothing has been really motivating me much lately to drop the necessary weight – and I know what everyone is thinking, “Nicole, you’re already smoking hot!” – true! But hey, we can all drop a few 50lbs here and there right? I’m going to be honest with everyone. I am 5’4″ (adorable) and I haven’t been under 210lbs in over a year, before that never not under 200lbs since like 2012. My heaviest was 225lbs and I never want to see that number again – or get close. Maybe one day I will get the balls to post some pictures.  Today just isn’t that day!

I read blogs almost on a daily basis about others’ weight loss and success stories so maybe that’s what I need to do. Blog the shit out of it. It gets pretty tiring trying over and over or thinking about what COULD happen if I fit into regular clothing.  Hell maybe I’d get laid more. Or consistently laid. I don’t any more reasons to hold myself back from opportunities. So let’s try this route and if I stop blogging about this shit then you know I fell off the wagon – or forgot to blog – and I am quitter. Maybe I’ll go back to blogging about something else. Who knows. I guess we will see. However, I am going to the Bahamas in May – it would be nice to enjoy it in my own skin; unlike any vacation I’ve been on where I hated life because I felt everyone was judging me.

I am currently “training” for a 10K. I use the quotations because I am not signed up for one at the moment but I am working on C210K. Tomorrow is my next run and it will end Week 4. I also bought Jillian Michaels’ 30 Day Shred through groupon – once that comes in I will begin that as well. I also do Weight Watchers 5 days a week (I fall off on weekends – gotta change that) and I own a fitbit. I have all the markings of  motivated person – without the motivations.

Any suggestions or motivational tips will be greatly appreciated.
