Good evening fellow fitblrs!
I have some bad news to report.
I have been home for almost a month now and I have not lost weight, but I have gained it some back.
Being home makes me fall into old habits, and it makes me become a person that I do not want to be.
I haven’t been working out or eating right and my weight has gone up because of it.
However I have realized this and I need to stop this right now.
I have been eating like I used to in high school when I was depressed and alone.
I turned to food as a friend. When there was no one to hang out with; I decided to hang out with some brownies, ice cream, Wendy’s, pizza, french fries, cake, cookies etc.
Food is not meant to be your friend. Food is fuel.
I felt so much better when I worked out and ate well.
It is hard to do, but I am ready to start this journey again. I wish I didn’t have to say that, but my mind got the best of me.
I think that restricting will work best for me, because I need to regain self control. I don’t have any right now.
I am going to work out when I have free time instead of being sad or just watching Netflix or something.
I have decided that I want to be able to do a handstand by the time I go back to school.
I am pretty close :)
I am going to try and be binge free for at least a week and then see where it takes me.
I should make another inspiration poster and hang it up too.
Sorry to disappoint, but food just got the best of me.
Time to get back into shape and being a healthier, happier me!
I just got 1111 followers!
So I will do a promo :D :D :D
Must be following me.
The first 10!
Yesterday was a complete binge day.
I ate so much food.
It was disgusting.
It was just one of those days where I couldn’t stop myself.
I knew that I shouldn’t eat more, but I just wanted to eat.
Today is a new day and I am never having one of those days again.
I made a glitter jar last night and am going to use it whenever I feel like I am going to binge or just want to eat something that I know I shouldn’t.
I am motivated and I want to lose more weight.
I can do it. I want abs and toned legs and arms.
I need to stick to a running regimen and do the 30DS for 30 days.
Let’s do this!
july ‘11: around 192
april ‘12: around 167
just got back from a run!!
Okieeee so america’s next top model is having cycle 19 casting call: college edition in dallas on sunday and i’m going!!!
Like I am so excited. I need to do this.
1. I’ve always watched ANTM and my sister and my friends would play and pretend to be models.
2. I want to meet Tyra Banks. I hate her but I would die if I met her.
3. I NEED to teach girls that they have to love their bodies. It doesn’t matter what they look like, as long as they are healthy.
4. I am finally confident enough to do something like this and it would be an amazing opportunity.
5. WHY NOT AHHHHHHH
Since I’ve lost almost 50 pounds I am super confident and am ready to show the world!
But hey I’m not perfect and this society needs to know that models and women are not and cannot be perfect.
I have love handles and stretch marks and large breasts and freckles and pimples and a big nose and eczema but do I let those things stop me.
I have finally embraced my looks and I proud of who I am.
RACHEL FOR ANTM CYCLE 19 BITCHEZ!!!!

I went for a run at my town’s wildlife center.
I felt really amazing.

I’m really glad I did it.

I look fantastic.
I had a good day today. I did a new workout on the treadmill and went hard. I ate well and then just had a special k protein shake.
I feel good :)
Just had an awesome workout!
I feel amazing.
I just feel so powerful when I’m on the treadmill. I’ve finally figured out that I was running too fast so I’ve slowed down my pace and don’t get side stitches anymore!
I’m so proud of myself.
