Originally started on ... July 1 🤦🏽♀️🤦🏽♀️
So on this day my homeboys Blake, Halman and Mora weighed in for their end of deployment photos “operation fuck a shirt” and I weighed in for the “90 day obsession” that my girl Ward started in April that I involuntarily agreed to LOL!... (she left for home the end of April on family emergency). I continued to workout and eat better though... yay me! 🙄🤣
Any who, When I first got here to Africa I weighed at least 185 maybe even 190lbs and I could not fit in my medium uniform pants comfortably. Meaning I couldn’t squat, bend down, climb on or in things at all because my pants were too tight in my butt and hip area. It was terrible. 🤦🏽♀️ I came to this realization while in training back in December... I couldn’t lift my own weight and climb up a rope on a wall, it was SO EMBARRASSING and a disgrace. I had officially felt like I fell off 🤦🏽♀️
...it was a terrible feeling.
So, I told myself and my superintendent that I will definitely fit in them before I get back. Well, February rolls around and I started to get discouraged because I was talking myself out of this weight loss idea. I came to convincing myself that I will continue to need large pants because the problem wasn’t my waste, it was my hips and butt... how in the hell am I going to lose weight there?!
Discouragement turned in to depression because I would work out and didn’t feel any better plus... being in a depression was causing me to snack more. So I wasn’t accomplishing anything lol!
I can laugh about it now but I was distraught!
So, I said eff this imma workout with Ward I don’t care how crazy the workout I’m going to do it. I was down for it, but I hate working out.
When Tonnie love had to leave on family emergency so I told her and myself I would continue this 90 day obsession. Not having A clue how I was going to go about it! Lol!
Thankful for my army home girls for the balance! I had a good balance too, one was tiny and petite that had the same mentality as I “hates working out “ but being army she has a bit more motivation than I do. Then the other half she was a trainer and workout fanatic!
🙄😳 So yea, when we didn’t wanna work out she was there to push a little bit or make you feel bad. Lol!
This was the start of my little ‘get it together’ fitness journey. The good thing about it all is that through it all I learned how to target my work areas and understand where my weight sits at. This helps because it lets you know what to work on and how to manage your diet.
Next entry will be on what type of Exercising I do and how I currently keep up my workouts and eating habits now that I am back and have access to the multi varieties of food again.
This is one of those “to be continued” post.
When working on any goal its a good idea to have someone that will hold you accountable. That person or persons need to be someone that actually cares about you or at least the outcome of your goal .
Until next time, my loves
