It’s the little things

So, late Sunday night I went for a run. I ran my best every 2 miles. Don’t get me wrong- I stopped quite a bit. But, it was my very best time.

Early Tuesday morning, I go to the track with my two friends for an intense work out including squats, push ups, and sprints (it was intense for us, okay) and after that workout I decided to run 2 miles again. And guess what? – I improved my time by a whole minute! I was so excited!

And then, to top it all off.. I go home to visit my parents and the first thing my dad says to me is “haley I can really tell your losing weight. Good job.” Ahh it was the best thing ever to get acknowledged for my hard work.

What motivation. It has just inspired me to keep working my ass off. I can do this. This is for me

Done

Just got done with today’s run. It felt absolutely awful while running. Now that I am done I feel fabulous.

I used to be a great athlete. Running a mile two years ago wouldn’t have phased me… I find it very sad that I am now, struggling to get through 1 mile.

But, as I’ve read- Slow progress is still progress.

Night shift

Day two-

I’d like to say I’m doing great. The truth is, I’ve eaten one meal today. Not the route I wanted to do. I’m a nurse who works 7pm to 7am. It’s difficult enough to diet as it is, try having a jacked up schedule to always have to work around. Considering I made one of my goals yesterday to stop eating late night snacks, it will be very challenging to do that when I’m up literally all night.

Any suggestions?

Goals

From what I have read so far, I need to start low and slow. I need to set realistic goals. So, this week… My goals will be.

1. Stop drinking soda- all soda.
2. Stop with the late night snakes.
3. Walk every night.

I can do this.

This is for me

I am not who I used to be. I need to change.  This is my journey.  I have become so ashamed of myself. I find motivation one day, and that very might I let myself down. I don’t know if I have the will power to change. — I need to try.

 

It is a scary thing. It’s terrifying to first admit to yourself, ” You can’t keep doing this,” and then to actually take the step to change you life. I’m ready. I am ready to be happy. I cannot give up on myself. I will not give up.

This is my journey. This is for me. I will do this
