Inspire Me: Healthy, I Worked Out!

Well...maybe not technically.

Dont Quote The Raven
What really happened:
 Was that I worked my arms out using the pruning shears.
(I was too lazy to mow, so I spruced up)
(I know I said I would pay someone to mow, but we all know I'm cheap stubborn and won't)
And I fast-walked down and up the Mesa when I walked the dog.
I even put on my new Nike's.
See?

I'm awkwardly holding my head to the side to try to show you the Chevy sign on the hubby's hat I wore, but I didn't do to well. Whoops. Oh and the little spot on my new shoes? 
Blood, because I can't do yard work without hurting myself. #fail

Even if it's not technically working out, I totally worked up a sweat and got the blood pumpin'.
That's what matters, right?
Let's just hope it helped negate the fact that I pigged out at Old C's on Sunday night after the contest. I'm 115 right now, which is fine, but I'd like to be at 112 on Friday for the next contest.
It might not happen, but the good news, is that I think the extra three pounds are in my butt, and it is looking mighty perky with this Mesa walkin'. Not gonna lie...I'm diggin' it.
Will also said he likes me at this weight because my boobs are bigger.
I believe the boobs part, but other than that, he doesn't notice my weight changes. Haha.

To be honest, I'll be glad to have a break in the contests.
It's actually EASIER for me to be healthy when there isn't any pressure on.
You always want what you can't have, so next week when it doesn't matter what I eat?
I will probably end up eating healthier than I have in months. 
It's all a mental thing. Don't you hate when your brain plays tricks?

But there is one thing that I want you all to remember:


Nothing will ever be good enough if you don't make peace with your body.
Don't waste energy being unhappy with your weight. Love yourself and then you can focus your energy on being healthy and reaching goals.

So how did we do on last week's challenge?
Did anyone actually stick it out?
Anyone wanna go for round #2?

Tomorrow, I will try to recap the last contest and my weekend! I'll only be a few days late, but Monday ended on a sour note, as you know. I promise that it will be worth it :)

I love what you put at the end about loving your body regardless. It's so true! But seriously...let's hear about how you kicked boo-tay in all the other competitions!! Go girl!

Dude yard work is so a work out! Sometimes I swear and pump up so much more doing the lawn then actually working out! I will be doing my lawn today if the rain holds off.

Love what you said about loving your body at the end! So true!

Ya know what else I agree with you on? It being easier to be healthy when there is no pressure on us. SOOOOO much easier

Atta girl! Working in the yard is DEFINITELY a work out! No doubt about it. And you are so right - if you can't come to terms with yourself where you are, no amount of weight loss will be "enough". I hear ya!

P!nky said...

WOOOOHOOO getcha some girlie! Proud of you for the walking, because we know you don't enjoy the working out.

I wish my boobs got bigger, darn!

Can't wait to hear about your fabulous contest I know you are gonna rock the next one!

LOVE YOU DARLING! :) xoxo

Hilary said...

You are too freakin cute. I agree, yard work is definitely a work out!

Alana Christine said...

I would definitely call that a workout! Cute shoes!

All At Once said...

Yard work blows!!! Lol. Definitely a work out. Ugh the only working out I've been doing is walking two blocks to catch muni in the morning. It's shameful, but it's about all I can do right now.

Amy said...

I really, really love that quote. That's something that I've really worked on lately, loving my body for what it looks like NOW. So that I can only be happier with improvements! Thanks for the reminder :)

Jen said...

Yard work is definitely a work out! We have a push mower for our backyard and I am wiped out after using it lol.

Katie said...

I definitely think that counts as working out! love your new shoes! and that pic of you is cute!

The Little Flapper said...

Work it girl! :) But in all seriousness, thanks for the motivation. I recently started looking back into kickboxing, I did it my sophomore year in college and loved it. It totally relieved my stress and anxiety.

Also yay for new shoes!:)

Amanda said...

I love the quotes that you put into these posts!

lovin the Nikes too cute! at least with mowing the lawn yourself u tackle 2 things - getting yard work done & working up a sweat! love hubbys hat! & i loveyou! xo

Dani @ Inspire Motivate Love said...

Ummm...you did about as well as I did on the working out. At least playing/running after a 2 yr old and 3 large dogs gives me some sort of workout each day, right? That's my fall back, anyway! Ha!
Good luck on your competition this week! We all know you'll rock it!
XoXo

yard work is definitely working out. better than sitting around & doing nothing. fall weather is nice for walks & runs. :)

Whitney @ Everything Happens For a Reason said...

I don't know the first thing about yardwork :\ One of hubby's army coworkers/buddies in his office is going to help, while he is gone.

Nicole said...

Ok that quote is good advice... But hard to do!!

I hate yard work but you do work up a sweat doing it.
