The hardest part of weight loss

#transformationtuesday
one of the hardest parts of my #weightlossjourney was accepting responsibility for myself in all things

when we give up our personal responsibility we are giving away our power to control our lives. we take the path of a victim and place the blame on everything and everyone other than ourselves.

my emotional eating was not my fault it was because of my childhood. from the age of 7 to 13 i went from a kid who weighed probably less than 65-70 lbs to a 215+lbs manbaby. from 14-22 i packed on the lbs like it was my job tipping the scales at over 350lbs. i was kidnapped, lived in cars, tents and other peoples homes for six years as a boy named hunter rose.
this was the story i used to justify and rationalize my existence and all my faults. i mean no one was going to tell me to get it together, what kind of heartless b*****d would do that? (maybe someone who actually cared about my life, not my feelings) i didn't do well in school, had to take special ed classes, and when i wasn't going to pass a class i used my past as an excuse. i played dumb, i thought i was dumb.

it wasn't like i was schemin' and scammin' my way through, i didn't plan this.

i was afraid, i was embarrassed, i was ashamed, while all the other kids got to have elective classes i had to go to a different class where there were kids who really needed help, not just more time to work through problems. the thought of being left behind, losing all my friends, again, was paralyzing. like that out of control feeling, the fear that creeps in when you feel like you can't stop shoving food and drugs into your face, that little voice screaming in the back of your head. please! stop! please!

i learned that i could choose this path, i could blame something or someone else for my shortcomings and it would all go away.
it wasn't until i made the decision to take extreme ownership and responsibility for everything in my life that i regained control and stopped being a victim.

i'm responsible for my diet, weight loss rollercoaster, and bad habits.

i'm proud to say i've lost over 150lbs and kept it off for 7+ years.

#transformationtuesday true transformation will only happen when you are ready and willing to #forgive and #accept yourself as you are.
+
when you can accept all your flaws
+
you can truly give
+
to your friends
+
to your family
+
to yourself
+
because forgiveness is a gift you give to yourself.

Change takes time and hard work. progress takes time and hard work. small changes make a big impact. sometimes progress can be slow and can distract you. it’s easy to get sidetracked thinking about where you want to be. but you have to remember how far you’ve come. #transformationtuesday #weightlossjourney #thenandnow #alittlebettereveryday #workforchange #sweatforchange

Our mindset is very powerful. you need to train your mind to always look for the positive and to believe in your ability to do hard things! you are stronger than you think! 💪🏻☀️

Tacos. because i’m not dieting, it’s tuesday and i heard it’s a “thing?!” 🌮 🤷🏼‍♀️
.
di-et, verb
1. restrict oneself to small amounts or special kinds of food in order to lose weight.
.
well that sounds frigging awful! no wonder when i used to try all the popular fad diets which all eliminated something — sugar, food groups, carbs, calories etc., i’d fall off and be so mad 😡 at myself that i couldn’t stick with the diet for life. 💡 because restricting oneself to small amounts or special kinds of food is not made for life!
.
it wasn’t until may of this year that i found a plan that is actually made for life and all i had to do was incorporate 4 healthy principles that gives you the reigns to figure out what works best for your body! .
think you could do that and have dare i say balance with your eating? 😱 link in comments!

these bad boys took less than 5 minutes and a few bucks to make and are gluten and dairy free if that’s yo thaaaang?!?!

Tonight's food is a wrap with chicken, spinach, sweet chilli sauce and mayonnaise. diet for me is one of theeee hardest things when it comes to losing weight, i'm trying to always make better choices with food but it's so difficult at times. thought i'd keep it simple tonight and it was absolutely delicious! .

I do struggle with squat cleans. anything that has squats really. it's a major weak point. give me power cleans any day.
garage workout today.i'm trying to work on technique and by recording it i can see from the video on the left that i swing the bar out. 🤔 it's by no means perfect but the video on the right after a few tweaks has got the bar path slightly closer i think. i just need to practise practise practise. we do have the best coaches ever @crossfithuntsman 😁💪🏻 i need to take more notes.

🚲 one of the biggest reasons i prefer to ride at a studio as opposed to the gym is that the indoor cycling bikes at the gym have no meters for power or distance. so i rode a bike for 54 minutes and have no idea how far. i'm guessing 14 or 15 miles based on my 45 minute class average. anyway, i also did a full body workout of just bodyweight exercises.

i hope you all have a great tuesday! i'm going to try but with the exception of this past sunday we've had rain 🌧 and gray skies 🌫 for over a month and it is for certain affecting my mood and outlook. #prcathlete #prcrunner #pacerightcoaching #5ktraining #10ktraining #halfmarathontraining

My biggest tip is if you live within a walking distance of a grocery store, then walk there! bring an empty backpack and/or some reusable shopping bags to carry your things back. this is a useful tip especially if you’re someone who finds exercise to be a chore. with this, walking becomes a mode of transportation, not a workout! and also, you save money on gas 😉
