Ah, burpees and spider pushups. I cried my way through a few of those this a.m. Keep up the good work!

Lawrielady: Thank you! You can totally do this! :)

Fatallycute: RIGHT?! I work out first thing in the morning, and if I wait for any reason, it's nearly impossible to make myself do it. The kids are up and either need me or the space is occupied, work calls, housework calls..... sigh.

This week has been a bit of a disaster. I have slept late two days. As in two hours late. Not only did I miss my workout, I was late for work. Ugh.

I've also been reeeaaallly sleepy. Even on the days I slept late by two hours, I was so tired. I ate some gluten over the weekend, and I immediately gained 3 pounds and my face, legs, and midsection swelled up. Yikes. I have only been gluten free less than a year, so I'm not overly familiar with the feeling I get when I get off track, so perhaps it's possible that's what this is? Lord, I hope so, cause it's awful. I'm ready to feel like me again. I've been much more careful since Sunday about what I'm eating. I am still too carb heavy, but it's good carbs. SO many good FRUITS are in season right now, so I'm snacking on watermelon, berries, peaches....... so good.

Ok, so back to work!

Good for you. I need to get myself that motivated. I am trying though. Nice to hear that you are busting through. :)

I no longer make excuses. I used to be full of them, but I realized I could fool my brain and others, but not my body. It would eventually show what I wasn't doing. I try to do as much as I can before I do housework, that way its harder for me to make excuses.

Workout done! I cracked my knee a few times falling while doing the regular (non modified) exercises, but it was worth it. The feeling I get after making those burpees and spider push ups my b*$&@ totally makes up for it! I may still be a fat girl, but dang it, I'm a fit fat girl! One who will be down at least 50 pounds by June 2014!

thanks all!

Going well so far. I don't' weigh again till Saturday, but I feel good, so that's the important part! Mostly doing well with nutrition, and have pushed hard in all my workouts. It's nice to feel back in control!

After a year long plateau, I started a new program this week. I am LOVING how this feels! Even with the holiday today, I stayed on track. I brought my own salmon for a main dish, so I wouldn't be tempted by the barbecue. I had veggies as a side, fruit as a dessert, and was satisfied. I didn't feel deprived!

After dinner this evening I will rock my workout. I'm looking forward to it! For the first time in a long time, I feel like I'm in control of this journey again. Whoo!
