She’s BACK!!!

Back again!

My journey took a small hiatus (read: over a month or two) but I’m back!  I got a little detoured after dealing with the loss of my brother and all that comes with that.  Then I found other ways to be busy.  Then I felt like the weight was starting to increase so I had to buckle down.

Tiara Lanice is back! That’s what matters.  I do not quit.  Even if I disappear from the workout world.  In that time, my journey has changed a little.  I’m on a journey to a healthier me, but I’m not just on a physical journey.  I want an all around better me and in my absence, I’ve been interviewing for jobs in law offices and and AND…applying to law school!!  Yes, I have picked my #1 and will submit my early decision application – as soon as I stop procrastinating.  Mental and Physical.  Two journeys in one.

I don’t remember if I said it or not but, I want to thank whoever made a donation towards the arrangements for my brother.  I received a donation from a very kind person (thank you) and realized he isn’t someone I know personally.  So if you are a follower here, thank you so much.  Ever dollar helped somehow.

So back to the workout:

Today Me and the workout buddy did arms and cardio.  Actually, he did arms and cardio.  I just did arms.  The plan was to do arms, abs, and cardio.  That changed to arms and abs in the morning then cardio in the evening…I never got around to the last two parts.  No, it wasn’t laziness, I just didn’t manage my time too well.

Tomorrow is something else.  I think back and chest.  We shall see.

Week Two and Still Going…

Today marks 7 days since I began this journey.  I am one 7 days closer to my goal and 14 days closer to forming a “habit”.  We kinda slacked last week.  We didn’t workout the full four days like we were supposed to and…I had french toast. It was sooooo good!

Mondays are abs and arms day.  Needless to say my arms feel a little noodly. But my abs are fine. For now, I guess.

I’m a smoker.  My workout buddy and I are smokers. He more than I.  I’m not going to say I’m quitting, but I decided it was high time to cut back.  If I smoke on average 7 cigarettes a day, then for now I’ll knock it down to 5 a day and eventual less and less and yeah, at some point I won’t be a smoker anymore!

Sugar:

sweeteners

OHHHH I’ve been craving sugar.  Yesterday I was so tempted to go out and buy something sweet and bad for me.  What stopped me? I couldn’t decide what to buy.  And also I knew I’d be so mad at myself for cheating.

Meditation – it will happen. It WILL happen!

Keep Rolling, Rolling, Rolling

It’s SATURDAY!!!!  Almost one full week since I began this journey.  Almost 7 full days since I made a decision to be a better me.  I’m not sure I’d call today a cheat day or not. I didn’t have sweets, I kept the calories fairly low and I worked out.

Back and Abs.

Tomorrow is an early day and then just an early week at work all around.  I did the worst thing I could do: I brought my work home with me! And then didn’t touch it -_-.  It’ll get done. Tomorrow is another day, right?

What’s on the workout menu tomorrow? Chest, Arms, Cardio and Shoulders.

I don’t know. I feel pretty good. I’m proud of me. I’m proud of my workout buddy. Yeah, we slip up but, it’s a work in progress.  All I can say is that if you have a goal, do all you can to get to it.  Of course it’s important that you make sure those goals are realistic.  The last thing you want is some out-of-reach aspiration and do all this hard work to get there, not get there, quit.  No.  I learned a long time ago it was important to set your goals and then set subgoals (those little things you need to do to get to the finish line).  But then, don’t stop there.  What happens when that goal is complete? Do you just … stop?

No.

You make another one.  So. My Goal 2.1 is: after reaching an acceptable weight, I have to maintain it. Sounds simple, but it isn’t.

How’s it rolling world? What are you doing for you?
