Starting This Journey Once Again…

Posted on 2 min read 749 views

Hi guys! How are you all doing? This blog post is kind off a weight loss one. As you all know I quite struggle with this and I’ve been wanting to lose weight for a long time. I already have lost some but it’s going super slow!

In my last post I already told you about my weight not changing or even only get higher even though I started doing healthy things and working out. I also talked about speeding up my metabolism as I think that’s the reason why everything is the way it is. I’ve been on a “diet” for so long that my body just got lazy in some sort of way. It’s used to everything I do now and although it’s scary and a weird thought I need to consume more calories in order to lose weight. I also try to eat more protein, and drink more water as that is what the internet told me to do lol. My leg is still not really healed so running is not on the agenda right now unfortunately, I really hope I can pick it up again soon. I do want to go out and go for a walk on the same days though.

On the internet it also says that weight training also helps with speeding up your metabolism so yesterday I wrote a little workout program again for the I don’t even know how many times. I’ve tried it before but nothing really sticks which is a shame. I really hope I can concur this whole metabolism thing and if I do I will definitely do a whole post about it and all the things I’ve done to get past that stupid weight plateau. Unfortunately we’re not that far yet and I’m still constantly figuring out myself on which things work and which don’t. I really hope these things help otherwise I’m kinda lost.

If you also have tips on metabolism I would love to know btw! 🙂

For now I will just do my best and you will hear the updates soon, see you all next time!

Much love,

    Hi Sam, first of all I wanna say congrats to you for getting back at it. I don’t know exactly where you are in your life but anyone who can pick themselves up and start again deserves an applause. So I recently started eating quinoa- the red & black blend. I eat about a cup a day. Yes, that’s a lot I know. It does speed up your metabolism & I notice just after the first week my belly fat and fat on my thighs decreased. I wasn’t looking to lose weight but I found it anyway. So yeah, a cup a day melts the fat away. Best wishes

    Hi.I just wanted to tell you that you are doing great! I understand how hard this journey can be, especially since I am struggling with this myself. I wish you all the best in your journey and you should be really proud of yourself for being brave enough to continue improving your lifestyle. Also, a tip that works great for me is drinking green or any other kind of tea when you feel hungry, but it’s not breakfast/luch/dinner time yet! Please, keep us posted on your progress.
    Best wishes, xx
