Hot Girl Summer…NOT

This is not my hot girl summer, I can tell you that for sure.

I have always had an issue with my weight but this is the first year in my life where I can honestly say that I actually feel FAT.

I feel like a Santa Clause running across the roof and getting stuck in the chimney on the way down to deliver your toys.

I got a gym membership but I can just never find the time or the energy to go.

I started to eat healthy and cook all my meals. I even started intermittent fasting, but that hasn’t even helped to budge this weight.

I am 24 and I kind of feel like I want to hide. I don’t know what to do to make this weight move or how to find the time to build a regular schedule that will allow me to prioritize myself and my health.

If I can remember, I will blog about it here for you all to see.

End of rant!

One Week of Eating Clean(ish)

For the past week, I have committed myself to eating clean foods only. I have only bought food twice and I have made nutrient rich lunches and dinners to bring with me to work. I have noticed a few things as I start this lifestyle change journey:

  • I have more energy and I am able to work longer days
  • My focus has been better during the day time hours
  • I am calmer – I don’t feel as angry and bitter
  • I don’t have any desire to buy food unless I really don’t have any more food
  • I actually enjoy meal prepping
  • I still need to establish a cut of time for eating

Things are definitely improving diet wise and I think I can commit to eating better and preparing my own meals. Yes, it can be tough and time consuming at times but it is totally worth it. I will follow up with you all and let you know how things are going.

40 Pounds in 2019???

Hi Y’all!

I apologize for being super absent on the blog lately but I just haven’t really felt like writing anything. I have composed a set of goals for 2019 which I plan on sharing with all of you very soon, however, I just haven’t been in the mood to go through all of my aspirations for this year. So far, 2019 has been pretty great. It was my birthday on January 24 (24 on the 24th!!!) and I had a great time at a cool bar with a few of my close friends. I have also been incorporating low impact cardio into my daily regime for the past 2 weeks and I have never been more proud of myself for the level of discipline I am showing.

My number one goal in 2019 is to lose 40 pounds. I have seen so many people do it and I think that I can too. I am tired of gaining weight and seeing cute outfits that I would love to fit into, but I just cannot. I have been making little changes to my diet and athletics lately and I hope that these efforts will become a lifestyle change for me overall. My goal is to be in better health long term and to also feel like a cute girl in her 20’s again. After the terrible 2018 I had (and y’all would know if you really followed my blog), I think its time for me to feel like me again and for me to feel happy and amazing again. 2019 is the perfect year to boss up (as Rick Ross tweets daily). I hope that I will be able to update you on my great progress one day soon!

Bye for now my lovelies. getty_1004613044_376718

Forcing Myself to do the No Carb Lunch

A no carb lunch! What a thing is this?! Recently, I have just started out with my healthy eating20170708_180649 journey, and it is my ultimate goal to be able to shed serious weight before the end of 2017. Late start to the goal, but a late start is better than no start!

With this I wanted to show you what one of my typical lunches have been looking like. What I have in my plate are the following:

  • Harissia Seasoned Chicken (PC Brand Seasoning)
  • Vegetable Stir-fry (Onions, Broccoli, Mushrooms, Bean Sprouts)

So far its been super healthy but I do miss my bread and pastas. You can make healthy look and taste good, but you have to be ready to make the change.

Follow me on my healthy eating journey as I continue.
