My friend said, "You are changing, everyone has noticed. Everyone says so."
Uh. Yeah My Dude. Life is all about change and I am making it this year's intention to change.
If I used to go drink? Now I don't do that.
If I used to eat my feelings? Nope, I am sitting with the discomfort.
If I used to smoke? Nope, long time gone.
If I used to gamble, or fuck away the emotions? Nope, none of that.
I am making every mother fucking effort to do only those things that will help me achieve my goals: Healthy exercise and food, stress reduction, sleep, reading, emotion wellness and regulation. I deserve to come first. Like Eddie, this is MY YEAR.
What. A. Monster!
So for my birthday I asked for a gym membership because I want to get healthy again!
Today was my first day in with @hrstories1234 and I knew it would be a struggle and need to take it easy since I’m so out of shape.
I worked out for 30 minutes…which is more then I planned to do I’m proud of that.
15 minutes treadmill
5 minutes elliptical
10 minutes arm workout machine.
Felt good to work up a sweat again!
dry fasting <3
i've been doing fasts for years now, but never actually paid attention to dry fasts. And now that i did research i wanted to highly recommend it for results not only in releasing way way way more fat than in a water fast, MUCH FASTER, but in regards to the health benefits as well.
There's plenty of youtube videos on people that did it for days and the book The Phoenix Protocol also talks about how wonderful it is
Just have in mind the previous scenario of doing the dry fasting. Be absolutely clean for a few days (water, fruits or only one type of fruit) then water fast for a day or as you wish, and then start the dry fast.
Please this will change everything and i just wanted to share this, i can't believe i didn't came across this info before. Maybe i was preparing. But holy holy holy. Best method ever T_T
Hey @nonsequiturpizza, cheers to me having my first glass of water since Sunday ✌️💦 *slurp slurp*
the difference 45lbs can make on a 5’10” frame 😳 next time i feel like there’s no change in my body i’m just gonna reference these two photos. on to 50/75/100lbs bc there is no way i’m stopping here
I have noticed that I am really becoming inpatient, now that I am "almost" at my goal weight. Almost means I still have to lose 30.5lbs, but after eleven months working hard for myself and losing 73.2lbs, my goal is not that far away anymore. But I really just want to be there already, especially because I am worried of developing another eating disorder.. 🥺
Been trying to get my health in check. A total of 70 lbs down since August 30th ‘21. I’m super excited how far I’ve come.
Not usually something I post but I wanted to show you guys (part) of my bento I had for lunch.
I just started my new job and no one really talks to me and it gets pretty lonely. So I've started packing cute lunches to make myself smile.
Self care is important guys. Even something as small as dog shaped rice.
248.4 Holy shit.
F yes. F yes. F yes.
That's almost 70 pounds down. Dude.
Honey, right now I'm moving the logs to the shed. I'll be over in a minute and see you. Should I put on a shirt or come shirtless? 💪🏻🔥
Lower Calorie Pumpkin Muffins!
These turned out delicious! Not very sweet if that’s what you prefer. Just add a bit more of sugar or maybe some dried/candied fruit inside. I just split them in half and added a bit of butter, pistachio cream, or peanut butter inside and they were just perfect!
2 Tablespoons of Canola Oil
1/3 Cup Plain Greek Yogurt
1 Large Egg (room temp is best)
1 15 oz Can of Pure Pumpkin (not the pie filling)
1 Teaspoon Vanilla Extract (pure or not, live your life)
1/2 Cup of Brown Sugar (or honey, maple syrup, you do you)
1 1/4 Cups of All Purpose Flour
3/4 Cups of Rolled Oats (Plus a little extra to sprinkle on top)
1 Teaspoon Baking Soda
2 Teaspoons of Ground Cinnamon
1/2 Teaspoon of Ground Nutmeg
1/4 Teaspoon of Ground Ginger
1/4 Teaspoon of Salt (I used kosher, but you don’t 100% have to)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Lightly coat your muffin tray with your preferred non stick method. I just used the paper liners, which they did stick pretty well to.
Mix wet ingredients together in one bowl. Whisk them in each one at a time.
Mix dry ingredients in another large bowl. Make sure to mix them thoroughly, leaving no clumps.
Slowly mix in the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients. Mix thoroughly.
Scoop the batter into your muffin cups/tray evenly. They don’t have to look pretty, just need to be in there. Sprinkle on some of the extra rolled oats.
Bake for 25-35 minutes. Mine took about 35 minutes to bake thoroughly.
When done, set them on a cooling tray and have at ‘em! Who am I to tell you to wait for them to cool down? I definitely didn’t.
This recipe ended up with 16 muffins. Around 80 calories each. ~108 calories per if you make 12 and have them be slightly larger.
For the first time since the pandemic, I am under 200 lbs. Yay me.
I will celebrate by making a "breakfast version" of rice pudding, with reduced sugar and chia seeds.
My kids will probably hate it :P
