Last week was a really big reality check. In a world where social media is a huge part of our lives, I’ve let myself make 2 lives. The one I am living, working hard at both work and home but with mistakes, and one I feel pressure to uphold. Operationweddingday was started to kind of keep me motivated and accountable, ready for the big day. But ended up becoming a negative source for me mentally and physically. I felt such a pressure to look and post certain things, I don’t feel it was moving me in a positive direction.
Monday was a total refresh. Sure, I am still looking forwards and very determined to be fit and healthy for my wedding, but it’s time for a fresh start with everything. Diet is being stripped back to simple foods. Gym sessions are back into the rotation 3/4 times a week. But the biggest change, operationweddingday instagram is being retired. Welcome to thatstheweigh. One strong title for me for an honest blog + Instagram. Through slip ups and confidence bursts, I promise it will be the truth! And I promise to make sure it’s positive.
Here is to a fresh start and a clean slate.
So I’m sat here, watching a documentary about the Crossfit games, amazed! The determination and drive of these people is so motivating! Ok, the rounds of exercise they do is mad, but wow!
For anyone who doesn’t know what Crossfit is, it is a high-intensity fitness programme. Reebok host the Crossfit games each year, and bring all the fittest women and men to one stage to battle it out for the title of fittest man/woman on earth.
If there is one thing I take from watching these athletes, its that your mind is such a strong and powerful thing! Put your mind 50% into something, and you’ll get 50% back. However, put your mind 1000% into something, you will come out with 1000% in return.
Mindset is most of weight loss. If you want to loose weight, or for that matter achieve anything you want, you need to gain the right mindset. Put the hours in, spend the time on it, and you can do it. You give it 100%, you will see the results. Put 10% however in, and you won’t.
So my advice is this. If you want it, you got it. Match your desire to your motivation, and you can join the target weight club. Me? I want to get toned and get to my new target of 135lbs. Maybe even in the future give Crossfit a go!
1000% from tomorrow. Let’s do this!
