So I am in a funk

fatmaninalittlesuit:

This morning I realized how little progress I have made this year. After bouncing up and down, I am down about 20 lbs for the year. :(

I KNOW that is better than being up but it simply isn’t good enough. 

Need to redouble my efforts and take control of my life.

I am in a similar boat, despite trying lots of different things to make the scale move, it’s been very stubborn.

Don’t let it get you down, John! It’s still DOWN 20 pounds! It could be so much worse! (I’m sure we’ve both had much worse years!) Plus, look at you with the running of 10k!! Seriously??!! There is no scale victory that could eclipse that!  Don’t sell yourself short! You’re doing great!

Don’t let that damn scale get you down!

Hard questions - I like tooooo many of you!

fatmaninalittlesuit:

 tagged me in 3 questions, that while very cool, are going to disappoint someone. Blame her… :) 

You’ll have a dinner party but only with people from tumblr, who will receive invitation? Choose 10 blogs.

For this list, I tried to list people I’d love to meet and who would make for a fun party :) 

  1. Eveline
  2. Anna
  3. Pam
  4. Amanda
  5. Melanie
  6. JoEllen
  7. Cate
  8. Valencia
  9. Amalia Rose
  10. Savannah - You almost didn’t get invited since you made me choose. 

- If you could met someone of tumblr in real life, and you could give a hug, who will be?

Soooooo many :) How about Tabby? She is not feeling so well today and could use our love. 

- From tumblr, Who change your life a lot that you’re so happy to met him/her and how changed your life?

Again so many, but if I had to pick one I would say Anna has had the deepest impact on me and my healing process. :)

I just got tagged in these questions too, and you are at the top of my list, John! :)

Bad Yogis!

becoming-rachelgreysummers:

So hananafit88 brought up the ever so awesome new challenge by Erin Motz. Some of y’all might have done her 30 Day Yoga video challenge from DoYouYoga.com. She has a new challenge out now!

Click Here!

(that link will take you to the sign up page)

This is for Bad Yogis!

Are you a Bad Yogi? According to Erin, the creed it:

  1. Bad Yogis don’t do yoga to be a part of the cool crowd.
  2. Bad Yogis don’t need to be able to do difficult poses perfectly or have their own Instagram hashtag.
  3. Bad Yogis understand that yoga is about feeling good, not just looking good.
  4. Bad Yogis are real people, not impossibly fit, flexible, and flashy representations of yogi stereotypes.
  5. Bad Yogis aren’t in it for the image or for the status, but because it’s theirs.
  6. Bad Yogis don’t let any predetermined doctrine define their practice, and they don’t adopt some rigid set of “rules” just for the sake of having some.
  7. Bad Yogis define their own practice.
  8. Bad Yogis aren’t conceited and self-righteous about “their” style.
  9. Bad Yogis are inclusive and everyone is welcome, whether they are fat or thin or new or seasoned. It doesn’t matter if they see yoga the same way you do, but they’re welcome any way.

Join us, all you Bad Yogis and let’s get to practicing (:

Let us know if you’re joining in. The more the merrier! We can start a Bad Yogi Party!

crossfitters:

Rita Benavidez: Hahahahahaha they can’t all be hits, but this is definitely a win. I want to emphasize that I was NOT injured at all!!!! I wanted to share because the struggle is real, and frankly I die of laughter every time I watch this. It looks so bad. I’m by no means an excellent lifter but really more of a work in progress, who isn’t right?! Here I was trying to PR my snatch at 172. But….

The only way to succeed is to allow yourself to fail. :)

Autumn Slim Down Challenge - Day 1 & 2

fatmaninalittlesuit:

Day 1

☆Brief bio/your story

  • I have always been a little heavy / had poor self esteem
  • My weight started shooting up when my mom died (trigger warning) when I was 19
  • It got as high as 475 before I decided to change
  • I lost ~130 of it but put some back on
  • Headed back down, but slowly :) 
  • More info here

☆Current pics and/or stats

image
☆Goals for the month/duration of the challenge

My primary goal is to get all of my healthy habits back on track. I know this will lead me back to weight loss. 

  • Journal all my food
  • Drink 4L of water per day
  • Follow an 80/20 clean eating plan
  • Exercise 5-6 days a week
  • Weekly reporting for accountability

☆Dietary choices and/or work out plan

  • I am using WW on-line
  • I am on week 9 of a 10 week, 10k training plan and have my first 10k scheduled for September 20th

Day 2 - What was your aha moment?

At what point did you go, “enough is enough, I need to change,” and start your health journey?

My daughter was 3 and I released I was unlikely to live to see her finish elementary school unless I made some radical changes. This would make me one of the worst things in my own eyes an absent father. 

Your ‘aha’ moment never fails to bring tears to my eyes, John. I’m so fucking proud of you. I hope we meet one day cos I just want to give you the biggest hug and tell you that in person.

Thank you guys so much! I can’t tell you how much your support means to me!

new scales…

samgettinghealthy replied to your post “Why is it….”

I just went through that last week too. It sucks!

Why can’t the old scale weigh MORE and you get this ‘whoosh’ down when you get a new one? Has never happened to me, ever! LOL!

rebelweight replied to your post “Why is it….”

Depending on where I place me. Scale I have a weight difference too. I pick the number the scale shows the most though. It sucks lol

Oh, you’re smart picking the highest number! I don’t move my old scale, can step off & step right back on time after time and get 5 pound range of weights. I used to pick the one that came up twice, but lately NONE have been coming up twice out of 5 tries! LOL! Figured it was time for a new one.

I wish I could just toss it out like I see others on tumblr do, but I’m just not there yet. I must have that number to keep me … grounded? Or … I don’t know, it’s like a security blanket, I guess. A habit of a lifetime is hard to break out of.

6samgettinghealthy, rebelweight, new scales, journal, reply,

Despite ‘gaining’ three pounds by getting a new scale, I’m having a good body image day today. Maybe it’s this new Danskin/Walmart top, which I’m really liking (and is so soft and comfy that I slept in it last night). Plus my hair decided to go to the left today instead of in the middle, which isn’t bad.
So, happy ‘Get a New Scale and Gain Three Pounds’ Day After Labor Day!
To work now.
Let’s make today amazing, okay?
