Challenging Yourself

Good morning loves =)
So I've been getting alot of messages about how I get the motivation to work out and change my lifestyle... So I've been thinking about how I get myself to do what I've been doing and the outcome is...

By reminding myself what I don't want to be. Working out everyday shows a lot of self discipline and determination. It sure as hell isn't easy. I mean think about it, how many of us say that we're going to work out and lose weight but don't do it? It's rarer then you guys might think, to find a person nowadays that does what they say they're going to do. That's how i get motivated personally. I don't want to be known as the lazy one, I don't want to be known as the fat girl that just whines about her weight but does nothing about it, I don't want people not believing what I say or doubting me. I want to be assertive and prove to others that i DO have the self discipline, that I AM not lazy, that I CAN do things that i say i'm going to do. Because overall, when you say you're going to do something and you don't, not just when it comes to weight, but everything in general, people attach that to your character.

Think positive girls, push yourself, force yourself, don't make excuses. Don't even give yourself TIME to make excuses. Truthfully i wake up thinking, "FUGGGg.. i don't want to work out.." and you know what I do? As soon as i say that.. I'm already getting dressed to go to the gym. I don't lounge around thinking about maybe I should just rest. I just force my body to start heading to the gym even if I want to bail. Sometimes it's so hard I want to cry. But... I just do it and by the time I let myself think again, I'm done! It's hard work! I know! and it's sooooooo hard! I know.. believe me. But you HAVE to do it if you want to change.

Change is hard work. Change is also one of the most admirable traits in my opinion. A person that can change themselves can do anything. Don't get stuck in your comfort zone, don't allow yourself to limit your potential. WHY do you want to stay as you are if you can work to become even MORE AMAZING!

I know it's hard, but I know!!! everyone can do it.

Another thing, stay positive. STOP the negative comments, stop talking to yourself badly. STOP crtitizing your body. I'm now learning to appreciate myself in all aspects. It really does hurt your self esteem horribly when you keep looking at yourself in the mirror and saying.. "fugg.. i'm too fat.. fug.. i'm so ugly.. fugg.. i wish i were different" STOP!!!!

I'm still learning to do the same but lets work at it together you know?! We can be amazing, people appreciate confident women. MEN yes, MEN adore women that are confident even if they got some chubs on them!

I love you guys and from the deepest depths of my heart hope that you find the point in your life where you come to realize that it is possible, that you are amazing and that you are beautiful both inside and out.

Especially you youngins =).
A note to my little cutie patootie girls, you don't have to be stick skinny, don't think you have to be perfect. You guys will learn in time that, that is not what matters!

Have a wonderful Thursday loves! <3 will =")">

I agree on the exercising in the morning.
I think the only thing that's really helped me be successful at weight loss is doing it first thing in the morning. I've tried after school or after work aaaand... yeah... there's always a better excuse than to get sweaty. So, I love your post. You go girl!

This post hit home for me. It made me realize how much I batter myself wishing I was someone else when I looked in the mirror... So thank you. I've been working out but it never feels like there is a change so I get frustrated and lose hope. But your words helped me and I will stop screwing up my own self esteem :) And work harder. Thank you. It's better to hear stuff like this from a person you know understands how you feel so thank you so much- jessi
