July 4th wasn’t a complete disaster! I’m surprised honestly… And I bought new sports bras!
Yesterday, I had zero motivation to go and work out. I kept on thinking about my goals but laziness was about to prevail… That is, until, I remembered my next to empty fitness fund jar. Who knew that earning $2 would be such a motivation? So I dragged my ass out of the house and went for a 10 mile bike ride. It was nice. Even in the ridiculously hot weather.
Today I decided I’m going to take myself shopping for clothes because I haven’t done that in such a long time. Much like the last shopping trip I went on, in which I bought nothing because I felt so awful about the way I looked… Seeing myself again in mirrors other than my own will be another self esteem crusher but perhaps I’ll be able to use it as motivation again. I’m topping off the day with HIIT so the fund is certainly growing!
I have a couple of events coming up that are huge factors in why I’d like to lose this weight finally. One of my best friends is getting married and I’m going on a trip to see another one of my best friends who lives in Hong Kong. I want to look awesome for both. Both of these things are happening in September, in time for my 1st goal of 15 pounds lost. I’m getting there, slowly but surely. I’ve been weighing myself somewhat obsessively and I see minor improvements each time. I’d like to NOT weigh myself until the 2 week mark but it’s going to be difficult. Should I add that to the pile of goals I already have??
