Operation Get Hot


Guess who has a birthday coming up? This old hag. And by coming up, I mean I am just two and a half months away from turning 29. That is correct. I am about to embark on my last year in my roaring twenties. I cannot believe I just typed that. I swear it was just yesterday I was getting depressed over turning 22. WHERE DID THE LAST SEVEN YEARS GO? It disturbs me greatly how quickly time passes.

Cousin, bro and I on my 22nd Birthday/College Graduation. Mama is not that size anymore. Can we say goal weight?

Do you want to know what is more disturbing? My cellulite. My arm jiggle. My stomach rolls. I am not even exaggerating. I am the largest I have ever been in my life. No, you are not getting a photo. Just use your imagination.
So with a big birthday on the horizon, I thought now is the perfect time to get super serious about ¨operation get hot.¨
Fat + birthdays = deep, dark depression.
You may have noticed I do not have the amount of free time I used to (Instagram is the new blog, OK?). I am running out the door every single morning to get to work at a decent hour. I do not get home until 7PM or later depending on what errands I have. So I just have to make time.
Last week I had no lunch, didn't get home from work until 8PM and allllllll I had my sights set on was plopping my fat ass on the couch and pressing play on that remote. My head said gym but my heart said Real Housewives. Something in me snapped and you know what I did? I worked out anyway. I put on 4 shades of pink, grabbed a water bottle and I. just. did. it. And you know what else? I felt a hell of a lot better after that work-out.

Guess what else happened after I just did it? I worked out 5 times last week. I'm not saying one week made me hot, but you have to start somewhere. I'm sick of wishing for it. I have to work for it and time is ticking. One only hopes my arm will one day get back to my 24th birthday arm:

  1. It's not my heart my head argues with, but more with my stomach. It's hard to resist cravings but I've learned that a little can go a long way. Instead of depriving myself completeley, a small bite of something I'm in the mood for is enough to satisfy. Just say NO to an entire bag of chips ahoy - it only takes one to get it done!

  2. Ugh, my will and my want of a hot body is constantly in a battle. I think skipping one workout is okay and all of sudden it's 4 in a row, so not okay.

    I've started working out in the mornings to get it done and feel so much better.

    GOOD to see your purdy face here again.

  3. I don't think I recognize this blog.. are you new? JUST KIDDING. Obvi I am fighting with myself everyday whether it's gym or TV. Thankfully the gym is winning most of the time.

    ReplyDelete
  4. I fight with my sweet teeth everyday. And I say "teeth" because they're so stong it has to be more than one. My motivation is my baby boy. I don't want to miss out on taking pictures with him and my hot husband because I don't like the way I look.

  5. I am on a mission to get rid of my excess flab! I don't know where it came from...this getting older thing i'm sure is not helping!

    ReplyDelete
  6. I'm constantly doing a back and forth and it sucks. Looking back at pictures of me on our wedding day make me so sad! It's two years and ten pounds later, and it shows everywhere! I've started using MyFitnessPal to track what I'm eating and hopefully regulate it--I'm not good about working out and and I love to eat! Weight loss is a simple concept (eat less than you use) but it's so hard to actually do! My motivation is my husband; he's gotten SO in shape the past few months and I want in on it!
    Good luck!

    ReplyDelete
  7. I totally do the same thing...every morning I attempt to set my alarm and hit the gym but lately 5 extra snoozes have been winning out over a sweat sesh. Good for you with the 5 workouts!

    ReplyDelete
  8. I've been following your workouts on IG and I'm impressed and inspired by your motivation. I started keeping track of what I'm eating but my exercise is still an issue. My heart keeps winning out on Real Housewives instead of my head and working out. :(

    ReplyDelete
  9. Oh girl, I have that argument ALL the time. And somehow my head usually ends up winning by coming up with a good excuse to void the gym. Keep up the good work! Love the new instagram blog by the way ;)

    ReplyDelete
  10. Slim fast is actually the way I lost 20 pounds last year. So easy, and it helped me to ease in to a healthier lifestyle to keep it off.

    ReplyDelete
  11. go girl! your IG pics are totally motivating me!! (as i sit here drinking wine and getting ready for pulled bbq chicken dinner -_-) and i hope you at least took "before" pictures for yourself even if you're not ready to share with the world!! totally motivating!! :)

  12. I wish I had your will power. proud of you friend.

    My heart is constantly planning my next meal (sometimes weeks in advance) but my head is always telling me "beth...that makes you fatter." my head always tells me to get out of bed and go work out, but my heart always tells me "but, beth, your bed feels so good." I am not a girl that works out ever. maybe one day when i'm rollin' in the dough I can afford a personal trainer. that would be my only motivation.

    ReplyDelete
  13. Oh my, I also have jiggle arms and rolling stomach. You are right, I better stop "dreaming" to lose weight but to work on it. Loosing weight won't happen in my dream or overnight. Thanks for the inspiration. I better get started tomorrow morning! I know my heart want to lose the weight, but my head is telling me it's too much work. :P I better don't listen to either of them and just do it.

  15. This happens to me probably every single day. I just get dressed and walk around for a while in my workout clothes and then I have to give myself a mental pep talk about walking out the door to the gym. But this week I have been doing it, just doing it without a struggle, everyday.

    ReplyDelete
  16. This is amazing and I'm so proud of you! All your posts on Instagram are so inspiring! XO

    ReplyDelete
  17. I definitely have that inner fight between the gym or the TV at home when I'm either really tired or really stressed. But I know that when I'm stressed or just a little tired that I always feel so much better after a good workout!

    ReplyDelete
  18. Well my head wants my body pre-moving in w/my boyfriend (aka 15 pounds lighter) and to work off my love handles..my heart wants white cheddar cheese doodles and real housewives! I follow you on instagram and you've been such a motivation for me.

    ReplyDelete
  19. Thats awesome! You never regret a workout :) I just did Turbo Fire at 10pm in my living room. Yup. That happened. Keep going you got this ;)

    ReplyDelete
  20. I have that mental argument sometimes, but the more you make yourself just do it, the easier it gets. You just get into a routine. If you're ever looking for something new to try you should look up the daily HIIT. It's free online and they have new workouts everyday that you can YouTube.

  40. Yep, head and heart (or stomach) argue constantly! But, I've lost almost all of the weight I originally set out to lose (shocked myself) and now I'm going to go for the last 10 pounds!

  44. As a food addict who has struggled with my addiction since the age of 11, I have had many many arguments with myself. I have finally figured out that I have to love myself to beat my addiction.

  47. my main motivation is the health benefits of working out...I am not looking to lose weight just to be able to outrun my hubby :)))

    ReplyDelete
  48. Every morning I have the conversation with my self to go for health and good eating habits but by the end of the day I am telling myself that one slip up won't hurt. But that indulgence is just an excuse that leads to the next excuse ..

    ReplyDelete
  49. I just want to get my body in shape and eat better so I am not so bloated! No battles really. I have never needed to lose weight I just need to get in shape.

  52. I have one all the time. It usually ends up with me just saying forget it and reaching for the ice cream.

    ReplyDelete
  53. I feel like I'm constantly having this argument with myself! I'm not happy with my body but the struggle to get into the gym on a regular basis feels like an epic one. I actually forced myself into the gym this morning instead of the usual "I'll start tomorrow."

    ReplyDelete
  54. I am happy with my body but I really need to work on eating healthier to maintain that weight!

  59. My head tells me all the healthy things I should be doing but my heart keeps finding excuses. The healthy food isn't interesting, I don't have time to exercise - you know, all the standard excuses.
