I wanted to make my first ever weight loss journey video on YouTube and decided to share my morning routine with you guys where I talk about how I am incorporating the miracle morning and 75 hard into my life!
January 1st, I started 75 hard again for the 3rd time and sadly failed again! I had told myself that I would try it three times before I fully gave up on the program and well I did, I tried it three times and failed all three times! Now part of me wants to try again but part of me says no its too much with literally no days off! The hardest part for me was the doing two workout a day for 75 days straight, along with the water intake too!
I took a few weeks off of working out and decided that it is time to get back to working out again! So I am back on it starting today and will be doing these at least 5 to 7 times a week! If I can do it everyday great, if I notice that I need a day off then I will give my body a day off! I just don’t want to give myself to many days off because I literally lose the motivation and it makes it 1000 times harder to start up again! And honestly I am so tired of starting up again or losing the motivation and gaining weight. I along with so many other ladies who have hormone issues, who have PCOS know just how hard it can be for us and I honestly fuckin HATE it! I hate the fact that it makes it so much more harder for us to lose the weight but gain 3 pounds just by thinking about a donut…sad but true! Life isn’t fair, it isn’t fair that its harder for us, it isn’t fair that I have to struggle getting pregnant, it isn’t fair that I have been off birth control for over 2 – 3 years now and have not had a pregnancy test come back negative! I want a baby so bad and I hate my body for not allowing me to become a mom! Sometimes the anger and sadness I feel literally breaks me down so badly, I honestly believe I have depression because of this! I hate being so rough to myself, being so negative towards myself and hating myself and my body most of the time.
I want to change how I feel about myself… I NEED to change how I feel about myself! Because in the end no one can change it but me. If I don’t love myself, if I don’t work on myself, if I don’t motivate myself…who will???
I am doing this for me and for my future babies! I cant imagine myself never being a mom to a baby…I just cant, it breaks my heart! I have to change… I need to change… I have to take the steps to change!
Yesterday was day 29 for me on the 75 hard challenge and I Failed for the 3rd time! When I first started this challenge last August, I told myself that I would try this challenge and if I failed to try again at least 3 times before fully giving up on it. Well this was my 3rd and finally attempted and I failed and that is ok! I at least tried it and gave it my best. Like Andy said this challenge isn’t for everyone, not everyone is going to complete the challenge when they start. But I am proud of myself for completing 28 fully days of it and losing 6.4 lbs in the process of it. I do like the challenge but the two workouts were by far the most challenging for me and made me kinda dread my 2nd workout and not put as much effort into it. So going forward, I plan on doing at least an hour of work out a day, but giving myself a rest day or two the most. I also plan on drinking a gallon of water still, watching what I eat, taking progress photo once a week though and reading. I read two full books this month and started a 3rd and I want to keep going on that. I want to read at least one to two books every month!

January 1st was my first day of doing 75 hard. I have tried doing 75 hard twice before and failed both times around day 16! I am hoping to complete the program fully this time around. If you don’t know the rules, here they are:
- Follow a diet – any diet of your choice! NO CHEATING AND NO ALCOHOL!
- Drink a gallon of water a day!
- Two minimum 45 minute of workouts a day – one has to be outdoor and they have to be at least 3 hours apart from each other!
- Take a progress photo every single day!
- Read 10 pages of non fiction or self development book – audio books do not count!
- If you skip or fail to follow any of the rules you have to start from day 1 all over again!
I haven’t worked out in such along time so it has been a painful getting back into it. I am starting off doing mainly cardio for the most part but adding in weights for a bit here and there until my body gets used to it! As far as diet goes, I am doing intermittent fasting along with counting macros and portion control ( I HAD no portion control what so ever before.)
So far I think the biggest challenge has been the working out and drinking a gallon of water every day! But I think well hopefully in a week or two or so my body will be use to it by then and it will be a piece of cake – fingers crossed! I have been upload small videos here and there on tik Tok but decided to put it together and share on YouTube too! I would love for you to subscribe to my YouTube and tik Tok and maybe even instagram? I will share my link below!
About three weeks ago, I did something that I have been wanting to do for so long but kept putting it off for fear of what the results would be. I finally went to the doctor to get blood work done to see if I do or do not have PCOS, which I kept thinking I did because I had all the symptoms for it practically. I did the blood work and sure enough I was officially diagnosed with PCOS, which I was not at all surprised about it; what I was surprised about was the fact that I was also diagnosed with super early stages of pre diabetes and cholesterol. My doctor and I decided that it’s best for me to go on a diet or better yet change my lifestyle to try and get rid of my pre diabetes and cholesterol and hopefully my PCOS too. So now instead of taking medicine to help control it all, I will be changing my eating habits and exercising which exercising I have been good about this year….been doing some sort of cardio every day and strength training at least 2 to 3 times a week. I think my eating habits is what is going to be the hardest thing for me to change but I know I can do it… I have to do it so I can get rid of these craziness and lose weight and hopefully get pregnant naturally instead of doing infertility treatments; which I’m open to doing if I’m still not pregnant by the end of this year because that would have then been 2 years of trying without success. I would love to connect with others who are struggling with the same thing.
