The Things I Do For Motivation

Hi everyone. Happy Monday!

I have been desperately looking for things to hold myself accountable to start eating healthier so I can lose a few more pounds. Exercising is really easy for me, it is nutrition that is tough. I LOVE junk, and I truly believe food is addicting. If I have a bite of ice cream, sugar, chips, etc… it is extremely difficult for me to stop. I know it is all willpower and technically I can, but it is a real struggle for me. I was talking to Patrick in bed and I was trying to think of things to motivate myself like “if I lose the weight I will buy myself a new workout outfit” or “I will get a massage”. Unfortunately these aren’t good enough to hold myself accountable. So, Patrick and I decided if I don’t get to my goal weight of 120b in 10 weeks, he gets to buy a new gun. A 600 dollar gun. DEAL.


This blog is going to be a great place for me to document my progress. What I am eating, how I am feeling, and any struggles I may be having. Every morning I will post my eats including calorie breakdown from the day before. You can also follow me on Instagram to get quicker updates =) Who doesn’t want to see a picture of scrambled eggs and avocado?! šŸ˜‰

Friday and Saturday I ate terribly. Yesterday I got back on the wagon, so I felt a little sluggish and craved more junk, but I made it through. I am aiming for about 1450 calories a day. This is recommended from MyFitnessPal and using the Mifflin-St Jeor formula. You can find that calculator here.

Here are yesterday’s eats with calorie count:

Well there you have it! During the day I didn’t feel so snacky, but looking back I was a snacking machine!
