Alright, so it’s time.
Time to put those before pictures and measurements up for the whole internet to see and judge! Can’t wait.
Just like probably everyone else who wants to lose a large amount of weight and become healthier while documenting it on a blog, I was debating whether or not to make these pictures public now or after I lose weight so I won’t feel so ashamed of how I’ve let myself go. If I post them after I see results then people would only be judging a previous version of me and that doesn’t really matter.
But then I decided that I could really care less if someone judges me in a negative manner. Fuck it. There are a lot of people out there that would be more interested in my progress if they knew where I started. Plus, the whole point of this blog is for me to track my progress and stay motivated.
This is the old me and in 90 days you will see a new me. Well actually you will get plenty of update pictures because that is one thing that I enjoy looking at that keeps me motivated… other peoples progress. Especially when there are a lot of updates so I can know what to expect (within reason) or at least see what is realistic.
Once I saw a blog post with pictures that showed results after like 3 days of p90x3 and I got really excited. But then day 3 came around for me and I didn’t see any results what so ever. Not in measurements. Not in pictures. In fact, I gain a couple pounds and constantly felt hungry. I even ate according to their plan and read the book inside and out. This was one of the big contributions to why I quit my first attempt at p90x3.
I really shouldn’t have compared my results to one other person. My body is my body and I will see results when it’s ready. I’m going to pay attention to the game not the score right now and I know I will get to my goals with time. I don’t want to get to my goals too fast. It’s not good for you.
Who am I kidding?… Yes, I do… 😀
Anyways… Here are my beginning results or what ever you want to call it.
Weight- 188.4 lbs
Fat %- 32.4%
I have one of those scales with all the reports. I heard they aren’t accurate but what the heck! I’ll record it anyways.
Navel- 43 in
Hips- 45in at middle of butt and 40in at waist line
Biceps- 13in Flexed 13.5 ish
I was actually surprised in a good way and bad way for these measurements. I was pretty convinced that I have reached the 200lb benchmark which is why I stopped weighing myself so that was pretty exciting. I also found that I have grew anywhere from 3 to 6 inches from the last time I took my body measurements when I was trying to lose weight about two years ago. I was at my lowest weight (146 lbs) in probably a decade and I’m only 23 years old. And I thought I was fat then!
Isn’t it crazy how we see ourselves? We sit here obsessing over how we look and how we need to lose weight or whatever our insecurities are and then in two years when we gain more weight or whatever, we look back and wish we were that size.
Life is funny that way.
Saturday, I will be putting up two post. I will be starting the p90x3 challenge and posting before pictures and measurements as I finally ran out of excuses of why not to do it and I’m off work. I will also be posting a mind and body recap every week or so (basically whenever I feel like it) about where I’m at mentally and physically so I can track my progress.
See you later!
Alright, so about two months or so I ordered P90X3 when I was laying in bed watching the informercial. They made it look really fun so I got all pumped up resulting in buying over $200 worth of shit off their site. I ended up doing it for like 3 days in a row and then said fuck it.
This is harder than I thought it’d be.
I wanted results and I wanted them fast. I didn’t see any so I gave up.
Then I came up with the idea of making a new blog.
I mean, the first time I tried doing the original p90x I made one and that helped me last a week.
A week of exercise is better than 3 days, right? Haha
Hopefully this time I’ll make it the 90 days which I’m pretty determined…. Well I feel like I’ll be determined once I get the energy and motivation to start.
All this exercise talk is making me want a cigarette and some Mcdonalds.
So yeah, the plan is to complete 90 days of P90X3 and blog my journey doing it. I know one of the most important things to do to get the most out of this program is to eat healthy… but let’s face it…
I love me some fast food.
So that’s step 2 of the plan. Maybe once I start feeling a little better or start seeing some results, I’ll slow down on the junk food and let the healthy shit creep into my life. I’m definitely not going on any type of diet… I’d rather be fat! I like to take life one day at a time instead of planing every single second.
Step 3 or 1.5 is to start jogging/running daily. We will see if it comes before or after eating healthy.
I want to do a marathon next year and right now I have trouble running up the stairs. I’m at my heaviest weight right now and I find my self using my inhaler more than ever before. Actually I stopped weighing myself a couple months ago because it’s too depressing to see that stupid blinking number raise every time I step on it, even though I feel pretty confident that I lost weight! I work outside sealing asphalt, sweating my ass off all day everyday. It just doesn’t make sense to me, I should be dropping weight like crazy.
So now I’ve come to the realization that when you’re fat/not in shape, you have to work really hard and be really focused in order to get to a heathy weight. Sometimes I think about gaining as much weight as I possibly can so that when I lose all of it, it will be a bigger accomplishment but I’m pretty sure this is just my brain trying to make me feel better about my body becoming a baby elephant.
I want to become a personal trainer once I lose all the extra fat and gain muscles and get my eating habits in order as well as feeling more confident about myself. I mean, who wants some skinny bitch that’s never been fat a day in her life pushing them through a exhausting work out telling them to put down the snickers when you can have someone that’s been there, done that and can relate to how you are feeling. I want to help people feel beautiful about themselves and motivate them to go further than they ever thought was possible. I want to help people be in the best shape of their lives and not have so many health issues or pain. I want to make a positive impact in other people’s lives.
Maybe one day you’ll be reading a post about how I made it….
Haha… I’m going to be the next jillian michaels.
This blog is going to be about me and my life. Well… most likely me procrastinating life. In fact, this is my second blog. (I made a couple post on my last one a couple years ago and then said fuck it) Now my plans for this one are much bigger however I did name it readytoprocrastinate. This is how I feel most of the time… ready to procrastinate. I guess you can say I’m lazy, but only under certain circumstance in my opinion. I hoping by naming my blog this that it will take away the pressure of failure or that fuck it feeling if I happen to not post anything for a couple weeks since it’s basically expected… right? Haha… After all, It took me 3 days to get enough motivation to write the this post.
Starting out, my biggest goals are to get in shape so this blog will most likely start out being a weight loss blog. Maybe it will evolve into something else… maybe.
My story. Maybe you will relate to what I will be going through or want advice to what will happen once you start your journey or simply how to start. Maybe you’re just bored out of your mind surfing the web procrastinating something that you will probably hurry up and start and finish when you hear that car pull up in the driveway or your boss walking down the hall.
Maybe no one will read any of my posts.
Either way I’m here to blog because I need something to motivate me otherwise I’m just going to end up watching t.v. and continuing to gain weight and do nothing.
I’m the best at procrastinating.
This blog is going to help me become the worst.
