Weight Loss Wednesday: It’s Easier Than You Think

Michelle, it’s supposed to be easy. Everything is supposed to be easy. Everything is easy. You live in a dream world. You’re surrounded by illusions. And the illusions change when you change your thinking!

Tell yourself it’s easy. Tell yourself often. Make it an affirmation. Eat, sleep, breathe it, and your life shall be transformed.

It’s supposed to be easy,
    The Universe

I have to admit, as often as I tell myself “This is too hard” I should be telling myself “You can do it”… getting healthy is not about getting thin, or about losing weight. It’s about GETTING HEALTHY. What does that mean? That means that everything I put in my mouth is going to fuel me, and what actions I take are going to get my blood pumping.

I started this journey because my health was at stake, so getting my health on track is what matters to me. I started looking at food as fuel instead of taste, although that’s hard for me too… food tastes good, and that’s why I like it. BUTTTTTT I HAVE A PLAN Y’ALL! I’m just going to ask myself “Is this healthy for me to eat?” before I put it in my mouth, and I hope that will stop me from going on a junk food bender.

Then the laziness sets in and you slowly drift from your love of the gym. This week I bought myself something special so I can workout at home too, that way I have no excuses on why I am not moving enough! No time to go to the gym? No problem, get your ass on this bike and get to it, Michelle!

I got myself this Pro-Form bike to ride in front of the TV while I watch my favorite shows. One hour in the morning and one hour at night is all it takes to drop some serious lbs for me. I lost 4.8 lbs since my last weigh in, I hope this week is another good one.

I have a photo up there also where I made some healthy spaghetti squash with mushrooms, onions, parmesan cheese, and spinach! It was sooooo good, a big thank you to my neighbor for showing me how to make spaghetti out of spaghetti squash, I love you boo!
