Sometimes we get stuck when it comes to goals, this is especially true when it comes to fitness goals. Results are hard to see on yourself and the scale is an asshole 99% of the time, measuring yourself is a hassle and you end up feeling like you aren’t getting anywhere – yet you can’t remember what a piece of cake tastes like, the last time you had a glass of wine and the smell of pizza is basically a religious experience. I have been there, I get it. This is where most people usually give up and this is where I am lucky enough to have willpower like no other and push through – which is why I am seeing results and feeling shit hot, like today.
I am talking about progress today because progress and seeing results is why we do things. No one wants to stay at a job in the same position for 10 years, just like you don’t want to gym every day for your whole life and not slim down a bit.
I took a break in December, I carried on at gym and made sure I kept on running and maintained my fitness, but I ate whatever I wanted and drank all the Cappuccinos (I am a sucker for a take away coffee and a muffin – which is why I had to do my “no buying goods from garage shops resolution).
I put one some weight – I put on weight just as fast as I lose it (it sucks), however I am happy to say that after 20 days of being really good (well 18 days – I fell off the bang wagon at a wedding this past weekend) I am down to the lowest weight I have been in roughly 5 months and I am now only 15 kgs away from reaching my goal weight.
3 months and I should be in the best shape and a size that is healthy and comfortable – and I can’t wait.
That being said, don’t give up. Track your progress. I write down my weight every day in my diary so I can track what I did that caused a result I didn’t want and what caused a result I liked.
Stop being hard on yourself, even losing 100g is a BIG deal have you ever see the size of a 100g block of butter or cheese?
Losing that much is no small feat, so don’t make it one!
