Cheat Days Are Not Binge Days.

Good evening. 

It’s been a weird day, actually a weird start to the year.  It’s a shame I can’t rant on here about the happenings, but let’s just say Monday blues got me down everyday. 

So, how do I come to work with a positive, happy mindset? Because let’s be honest, working in the service industry means we have to put on an act to convince people we are the happiest people alive.  The only way I can ever tell if I am coming across like this is when my tips reflect positively. 

The truth is, to my coworkers, I most likely come across as negative, moody and frustrated.  I know though, that my guests don’t see that side.  It’s practically the same for every server in my opinion, mainly because it’s so tiring to keep smiling for 3-6 hours straight.  

I really don’t know what keeps me going… maybe it’s the Rockstar… or maybe it’s more the fact I’m going to burn my anger of at the gym and feel good again.  

I just thought, I havent updated you guys on how well I’ve been doing.  Not very good right now is the analysis.  I lost 19 (not 20) lbs so far. My original weight was 175 and I got down to 156. Pretty exciting huh? So exciting in fact that I decided it was a great idea to have 2 cheat days. Not regular cheat days either, the kind where you eat a million things and gain 2lbs each meal kind of cheat day.  So I’m pretty sure I’m back to 160, which sucks.  I really need to treat dieting like my money.  Save it until my vacations.  THATS IT! What a great idea… it’ll be my reward after losing what I want to loose. I eventually want to get down to 140, with everything toned. So I guess that being said, lets loose another 20lbs! I got this! 

Right now my routine has got to this;

1.Walk 3 miles with puppy at 7am-8am

2. Go to work

3. Go to gym, do either leg, arm or ab workout and 45min cardio

4. Go home, clean.

5. Complete 30min of Yoga.

6. Sleep.

Great routine right?? Just need to convince my brain its a good idea to eat right too. Like really brain? You have to know by now that cheat days don’t mean binge everything and regret your decisions later.

Sleep well young souls.

Peace out, yo.


Random Shenanigans 

I was struggling about what to talk about this morning…

So I guess this is going to be a random mess of everything I’m thinking off. 

I have two days (today and tomorrow) before my rest day, and to say the least I’m excited. Literally all people are saying to me is either a damand on me taking a break on working out or to take a rest day, so there you go, Monday I will do it! I find it a tiny bit irratating when you have done your research, you know what you’re doing, and people still want to tell me what to do with my time.  I feel like some people should be proud of me. I have managed to do the following:

1. Start my healthy lifestyle at Christmas

2. Start when my period started 

3. Stick to such a healthy diet and routine that I’ve lost almost 18lbs

4. Say no to alot of temptations, including going out with friends to bars and eating bad food

5. Power through leg pain and still go to the gym

6. Go to the gym for atleast 12 hours a week

It may seem like a lot, but if I want to achieve the things I want to, then doing what I am doing is going to get me there! Someone also mentioned yesterday when I was venting about this stuff that some people may feel threatened or jealous that I am working out. By this she meant that when a regular human being turns round to me and tells me they started working out and I say I am too, and that I’m going 12 times a week, that it makes them feel like they aren’t doing enough themselves.  I just want to emphasize that if you are going to the gym at any point during the week and working out then you are amazing. It is more than ALOT of people do and you should be proud of yourself! Don’t let my crazy workouts scare you! I want to be this active and its my choice. You do what you want to your body and be proud of what you achieve, no matter how small!

I’m excited to announce that I will be taking two vacations this year! I refuse to not have sufficient funds to have fun there too. We are trying to go to Florida and the Yosemite. A few of my good friends from England will be joining us for either one and I am sooooo happy. It’s already turning out to be a good year.

Maybe I’ll talk more about vacation plans next time when I have confirmed more information! 

Anyway, back to my morning workout.

Peace out, yo.
