What if every women loved their body?

It's been a super hard week at work and I feel like change is coming my way.  I believe I am coming to a crossroads with my job and I feel soon it will be time to move on.  Things are still in the works but I can no longer be stressed and unhappy at my job.   Live is too short to be miserable.  

I had a good week in weight loss I lost 5.3 pounds.  I am sure it is a lot of water weight but I am glad the four pound gain from last week is gone!  

I am trying to come to terms with my healthy lifestyle.  I want to get to a place where I am determined and discipline to be the best person I can be but at the same time not obsessed consistently about my weight and the way I look.  I am trying to find a balance, I know this will not happen over night but this is something I am going to strive for.   

I have a 10 km race coming up this Saturday. This past week I have slowly gotten back into running listening to my body due to my back issues.  I am running on a grass football field as the moment to ease the contact and I will see where it takes me.  As for the race I will be speed walking and I am okay with that.  I absolutely love this race!  There will be over 10000 people joining me ;)  

My friend post this on Facebook and I think it is absolutely beautiful and hope one day I can love my body too!

Not going to give up

It has been a few weeks since I have posted and in my world that means I am hiding.   My weight loss has stalled and I have gained  more weight which is very disappointing.   Why does this have to be so hard???   I am a smart ambition girl who is consistently looking for new ways to motivate and encourage myself to be a healthier version of me.  

The positives in the last month is I am on back on track with my workouts.  I have gone for lots of walks and some couple of hikes.  I started weight lifting and doing workout classes.   I am NOT a lazy person.  Even with my job I am constantly moving.  Take tonight for example; I walked almost 14000 steps and I did not even go the gym.  

Food is the problem and more importantly the binge eating that consumes me.  It's not every day but eating a whole bag of chips and a pint of ice cream in one seating will put a damper on losing weight. In the past couple of years I am completely aware that I am doing it verses when I was in denial for so many years.  Some days I am able to stop myself but it is the other days when I am feeling so down it feels like nothing will help but eating junk food.  It's high I guess?  and it is something I will have to work on to over come it. 

In the past few days I have been on track and I ready to start for the hundredth time.  I am not ready to give up.  My clothes are feeling snug and this has been giving me extra incentive.   

How do you stop yourself from binge eating?   

Here's a few things I have been up to

A walk on the beautiful Canal with one of my amazing friends :)

Having one too many drinks with co-workers.  It was a farewell party

Hiking with friends.  It was one hilly trail!
