Fitness Monthly–June 8


Uggh, I really did NOT want to get up and take my measurements for this month. Thus explains why I put it off for a week cause I just KNEW my measurements and weigh in were going to be pretty bad. The month of May was the month of lots of life and mental changing and with that came a boatload of stress. You all know how not easy it is to make a change for the better. Life just gets a little more hectic.

But anyways, I figured I’d go ahead and post them anyways. Perhaps this will give me the extra boost of motivation I’ve been lacking knowing that I actually have individuals coming and keeping track of these things. (O_O”) It shouldn’t make me THAT nervous but it does. lol Welp, here we go!

Neck:  14 inches

Arms, Flexed:  12 inches
Quads:

Thighs:

Lawd’amercy. My hips are still the same…..miraculously. I thought that would be the one spot that would explode during last month’s cannibalism. Ugh, school starts within a month, possibly two if I got the start date mixed up. I’ve got to get back on my healthy eating and fitness wagon, you all. It’s not even my entire body, if I could just flatten my stomach that would be GREAT. But we all should know that you can’t exactly spot reduce, you’d have to lose body fat everywhere by increasing cardio and incorporating strength training. I pretty much know the basics of working out and trying to get the best results, it’s just….doing it! That’s my problem. I’ve been lacking so much motivation and drive to continue getting in shape, it feels like I’ve completely fallen off. And I don’t want to backtrack at all. I look at myself in the mirror and just know that going up on the scale and on the tape measure is NOT what I want to do, but my body has just become automatic to reaching for the sweets and just food in general. I’ve been told that I’m eating emotionally to combat stress and overwhelming feelings which is odd to me cause I never thought I was an emotional eater. But maybe I am. Trying to stop myself from eating has failed me time and time again. So I’m trying to reprogram my mind to find some new, and healthier alternatives. So far, red grapes and shelled and roasted sunflower seeds (both salted and unsalted) have made it on my Kosher Food List. Still trying to reprogram because chocolate has been my uncommitted best friend herelately. Doing such wrong to my body and giving me weird nightmares, so I KNOW I need to cut that out. The only thing that has truly stuck with me is drinking water and I drink so much of it everyday. But that’s all that’s stuck.

So June is a fresh start, right? Should be getting back on track and I’m also thinking about starting my loc journey this month. I’m gettin closer and closer everyday ya’ll!

Sittin On the Dock Of The Bay…


Sittin’ in the mornin’ sun
I’ll be sittin’ when the evenin’ come
Watching the ships roll in
And then I watch ’em roll away again, yeah

I’m sittin’ on the dock of the bay
Watching the tide roll away
Ooo, I’m just sittin’ on the dock of the bay
Wastin’ time

I left my home in Georgia
Headed for the ‘Frisco bay
‘Cause I’ve had nothing to live for
And look like nothin’s gonna come my way

So I’m just gonna sit on the dock of the bay
Watching the tide roll away
Ooo, I’m sittin’ on the dock of the bay
Wastin’ time

Look like nothing’s gonna change
Everything still remains the same
I can’t do what ten people tell me to do
So I guess I’ll remain the same, yes

Sittin’ here resting my bones
And this loneliness won’t leave me alone
It’s two thousand miles I roamed
Just to make this dock my home

Now, I’m just gonna sit at the dock of the bay
Watching the tide roll away
Oooo-wee, sittin’ on the dock of the bay
Wastin’ time

(whistle)

Just having a real serene moment after a long day and just started singing this song and BAM, this sketch happened. You all enjoy your….what day is it? Friday? Heh, that’s just how calm I am right now. Gone and listen to it, I know you’ll like it.

And take this time out to visit Six~Foot~Cotton, more of my art things will most likely begin to end up there. 🙂
