Operation Get Fit - Linkup #2

It's weight loss Sunday around here! Every other Sunday I'll be hosting a linkup for anyone who wants to come play. You can discuss progress you've made, goals you've set for yourself, troubles you've been having, whatever the heck you want! It is very very informal and meant to be a platform for everyone to show support for one another! 

I've had two weigh-ins at weight watchers thus far, and lost 6.6 pounds. I honestly don't have much to report yet, I haven't lost enough to redeem any of my goal prizes, but I will tell you, I am so focused it isn't funny. I haven't cheated on the plan even once. Not even on a Saturday watching Vols football! 

I actually went out and bought a veggie tray, threw away the ranch in the middle, and ate the entire thing during the last Vol football game, to keep from eating chips and salsa. I figure, you gotta do what you gotta do to stay focused right? 

I've also gotten back into doing Turbo Kick class regularly, and let me tell you, it is definitely not as easy as it once was. Sure I remember the moves, so I'm not lost, but I need to stop for a lot more water breaks than I once needed! That is just more motivation for me to get better. 

So I'll leave you with my tip for everyone for this week. You know how so many people recommend pinning motivational pictures of girls with really fit bodies on Pinterest? Well, I've actually found that pinning funnier, sarcastic images is way better. Pinning a girl that I'll probably never look like, yeah, that doesn't help me. Making me laugh not only burns calories (duh, laughing is my cardio) but makes this whole journey a little easier to take.

  1. hahaha I love these memes and ecards! I totally agree, looking at pictures of women with perfect bodies just discourages me, because I know that no matter how much I work at getting skinny I will never ever look like them.

  4. I lost 3 pounds with WW this week... but I also have been having a fun cheat weekend baking cookies and making gingerbread houses. Damn you and this post. It was perfectly timed to get me back on track.

  5. I usually don't check my blog reader on Sunday, but I'm so glad I did today - I'm making a big pot of WW vegetable soup today. Thanks for the motivation, totally necessary on this lazy day.

  6. Haha, funny memes are much better than "fitspo" for motivation. I will never look like that and if you ever catch me out for a run in nothing but spandex shorts and a sports bra, it's time to give me an ego-intervention!

  7. These memes are way better than super fit, super ripped ladies. I'm definitely with you on that one!! Awesome job on the commitment and not cheating at all!! I need to get my butt in gear like you!!

  9. bahaha this is amazing. I also find it hilarious when people pin "fitspiration" of women who are so skinny and have no muscle definition that they obvi don't even work out. Starvation + sports bra does not a fit woman make. I love this linkup. Keep up the hard work, lady.

  17. Before they blocked Pinterest at work whenever I would get hungry I'd browse the health & fitness category to check myself...come to think of it that's probably why they blocked Pinterest, big girl gets hungry often...Oops! Keep up the good work!

  27. 6.6 is awesome!!! Send me your focus so I can channel it bc all this chocolate sitting around ain't doin the trick

  28. Thanks for being so real about your journey! Your stories appeal to those actively pursuing weight loss or generally healthy lifestyles, as well as those who only dream of being at that point someday. It's also un-intimidating, which I find to be rare when speaking on these subjects. Thank you (and good luck)!

  29. "Dieting is when you eat food that makes you sad." True story. I started T25 this morning. I am sore. I am tired. I think Shaun T might kill me. So I feel ya on not being able to do what you once could much easier.
