Time to track the numbers!

Thursday, February 20, 2014

So I just searched through the mess of DVDs under my TV and FINALLY found my Brazil Butt Lift set! So that's got me thinking it's time to do a numbers track. I'm going to post my measurements from today, and in 28 days, I'll log them again. Regardless of whether I stay on track or wander away, I'm committing to tracking my numbers! No scales needed for this, just a tape measure!

So here goes....prepare for the blast of reality to smack me upside the head....

2/20/14

Chest: 46
Bust: 51
Right Arm: 18
Left Arm: 18.25
Waist: 49
Hips: 56.25
Right Thigh: 27
Left Thigh: 27.5
Right Calf: 16.25
Left Calf: 17.25

Ok, now that THAT'S done, time to put in that DVD and let that funny little man guide me through a sweaty workout! If you haven't seen the DVDs, you really should. He'll have you laughing! He sounds like Gru off Despicable Me! lol

    Way to post the numbers... I've been debating doing the same thing. Also been debating trying the brazil butt lift work-out, since i now have access to it via xbox fitness, and my butt needs lifting, hehe. It will be exciting to see your progress!

    This is a great idea!! Good for you for finding non-scale ways to track your progress and keep yourself motivated. I totally want to check out that video now just to see/hear the guy talk! LOL

I look forward to seeing your results in 28 days!

Old friends and new faces

Monday, February 10, 2014

So I can feel it! That feeling I had almost 3 years ago. It started as a twinkle, built into a full on glow and TADAAAA!!!! My spark is back!!!

And along with my newfound Spark, I've rediscovered a couple of old friends. Thank you Chrissy, for resurfacing at just the right time! :D

I've also found some new spark friends, and their energy and enthusiasm has given me some much-needed motivation!

I did 29 minutes of upper body tonight for the HLC weekly challenge. And of course that drives me TOTALLY insane because for those that have been here with me from the beginning, you know full well that my inner OCDemon kicks in and freaks out that it's not 30 minutes! lol Since one minute or cardio just isn't going to cut it, I'll be doing 11 minutes of cardio once I'm done posting this. lol Ahhhh! :) And all is right with the world again. ;)

Ok, time to stop typing and start jogging. :D Have a great night everyone, old and new alike.

Focus focus focus!

Wednesday, January 01, 2014

It's way past time to get this back under control. I don't like the idea of setting resolutions, especially "lose weight" resolutions.
I WILL make a resolution, but it won't be lose weight. I'll cave in one aspect, but not both! lol
I resolve to get back to a healthier me. Stop with the over eating, get moving again, and DRINK MORE WATER!!!! lol If I lose weight, that's just an added benefit. I want my clothes to fit again, I want to do a workout without the aches 2 or 3 days later, I want to be fit and happy again!
I was on the right track, and in a big way. Then I started to self-sabotage. That little voice in my head became louder and louder. "You can skip working out the rest of the week. You can eat that and make up for it later. It doesn't matter how well you're doing now, you know in the end you'll just put it all back on and fail again. You know losing weight isn't going to make anybody love you."
That inner voice is an evil little thing.
So now it's time for me to get moving again, eat better again, ignore the voice and find happiness in myself again. I was just beginning to LIKE myself, feel sexy and confident. And not just in a really long time...I mean EVER. Never had I known such self confidence.
I WANT THAT BACK!!!!

  


It's been a long time coming...

Thursday, January 10, 2013

I've backtracked...badly. Looking at my page, I noticed I'm back to the same weight I was last February. That is NOT the direction I want to be going! I've got nobody but myself to blame, I know. I've let my eating get out of control and workouts were nonexistent.

It's time for all that to change. I don't ever want to be where i was before. I never want to rationalize a gain. I want to be pissed off that I'm allowing myself to fail. That fires me up and keeps my butt on track for success.

I started the January Jumpstart Bootcamp Monday. It's effectively kicking my butt. lol My calves are on fire, woke up with a Charlie horse yesterday morning, my triceps are aching today, and I gladly welcome every single ache and pain. I'm taking it with a smile on my face because I know I've earned every ache. I've worked for every pain. And I'm SOOOO looking forward to the day when I can do the exact same workouts, and more, and feel nothing but a sense of accomplishment....well, and sweaty.Very sweaty lol.

So yes, it's been a long time coming but I think the day is finally here. I'm refocused and found a little motivation again. NOW is the time for me to succeed again. And I will.

    I hear you! I feel the same way. I keep coming back to the same weight I started from, but I think I need to focus more on being healthy and not on the scale. Thus, the January Jumpstart challenge. I am so happy for you that you're sticking with it despite the sore muscles! By day 3, muscles were aching for me that I didn't even know I had!

Stick with it! Don't be mad at yourself for backsliding; just keep moving forward! You are awesome! emoticon
