Healthy Pinspiration

Today’s post almost didn’t happen.  I know.  I feel like such as slacker.  I’m definitely in the downhill slump.  You know the kind where you get discouraged, want to give up, and call it quits.  This weight loss thing isn’t fun, and sometimes it’s downright disheartening.  Thus today I decided to call in the troops from my Pinterest Healthy Inspiration Board.  Below are some of my favorites.  If you’re on your weight loss journey and need some healthy inspiration to keep on keeping on, feel free to check these out.  Hopefully they will be an encouragement to you too.

1.  See how your body looks before and after based on your height and weight loss goals with this virtual weight loss simulator.

2.  This “How to Get Skinny” infograph provides great statistical inspiration.  Did you know that novelty eating makes you eat more?  Maybe that’s part of my problem–I like trying out NEW recipes all the time!

3.  Being a time conscious momma who appreciates quick and healthy, I really like this 52 Health Meals in 12 Minutes or Less list.

4.  This is just the quote I needed this week.

The Reason People Give Up

5.  For some very inspirational before and after stories, check out these found on Shape.com.  These remind me often–if they can, I can.

Straggling to Strong Challenge Update

Last Week’s Goals
I let my schedule and travel plans get the best of me again.  Thankfully there will be no more traveling this next week but that still doesn’t account for my lack of enthusiasm in seeing this through to the finish.  I admit it.  I’m discouraged.  I did cardio when home but gave up tracking my calories as I had no clue exactly what I was eating.  Aw well.  Thank goodness this is a journey and not a one-time event.

Pounds lost this week: 0
Total Pounds lost:  6 lbs.

This Week’s Goals

  1. Do at least 3 hours of cardio this week
  2. Complete  7 Weeks to Fitness Week 5
  3. Track calories on My Fitness Pal.

What’s your plan of action this week?

    It’s hard to keep motivated! I think those boards you posted about are great, and I’ve never seen that weight loss simulator you linked to. Had to try it out for myself…really cool! Good luck with your journey, and I think it is very honest of you to post about days where things get hard and you lose your inspiration. :)
