Sudden Change of Plans

Friday, December 25, 2009

emoticonYesterday evening I found out that I start nursing school in 2 weeks!!! I AM SOOOO EXCITED!!!! and at first I couldn't believe it. But I was in the overflow bucket for Winter 2010 and I hadn't heard anything so I had given up all hope to start in Jan. 2010. But I was wrong! I start in two weeks and have so much I have to do. I don't even have my classes scheduled!!!

emoticonSo this sudden news changes my plan a bit. Becuase I was all ready to go back to being gung ho about my fitness and figure out work out plans and everything to get this weight off and get toned up. So, now the plan is to just work out whenever I actually have time. I may just have to make check lists for everyday. Or in between study breaks I'll go for a quick run. I have to figure out something anyway because I have my fitness test for the military in April that I have to start geting ready for. So, I will be doing some fitness. The weight loss is just going to be taking a little longer now. My next two years are going to be crazy busy. I'm so ready for it though! I need to not procrastinate! lol... that is going to be my biggest challenge through all of this.

emoticonHave a very Merry Christmas everyone!!!

Almost there!

Tuesday, December 22, 2009

emoticonI decided to weigh myself today and I am at 156.4. I then realized that I have 1.4 more pounds to lose until I reach my 10 lb weight loss goal. I am super excited. I can't really notice the 10 lbs that are gone and when I told my mom that I'm almost up to losing 10 lbs she laughed at me and said, "Doesn't look like it to me." So, I'm so glad I have my best friend, Tasha and all my spark friends for the support. I also was not expecting any weight loss because I definitely have not been watching what to eat with all the holiday yummies and have not been working out besides walking around everywhere. lol. So, after the holidays I wanna kick things in gear and def get to my weight loss goals!


emoticon My baby girl is going to be 6 tomorrow!!!!!! I have no idea where the time went and how she grew up so fast on me. I have to go buy all the food today so I can prepare it all tomorrow. Then tomorrow she said she wanted to get her ears pierced so we'll see how that really goes when we actually get to the store. lol. Tomorrow is going to be a crazy busy day... but then again maybe not cause my wonderful boyfriend said he would come over and help :]

emoticon I am still not quite ready for Christmas. lol. see how much of a procrastinator I am? lol. I actually work Christmas day...which I am okay with. I have two Christmases I have to celebrate. One is on the 24th and the other is on the 26th. This is the first year Abbie is going to spend Christmas with her dad. I'm a little nervous about it :/ I know she'll have tons of fun with her siblings though. So, tonight I will be wrapping the rest of the Christmas presents up! I am actually so ready for Christmas to be over with. lol. I hope all my wonderful Spark friends have an amazing, merry Christmas!

emoticon I also just recently found out that I will be an aunt again! My sister is 6 weeks pregnant and due Aug. 10, 2010! I'm a little upset with her though cause by no means is she ready for another baby but ya know what I'm gonna support her and love that baby to death :]



Here's our 2009 Christmas pictures. Enjoy!

Keep that *SPARK* lit...

Monday, December 14, 2009

I took my last test for the semester today!!!! woooohoooo! The plan now is no school until I get accepted into a nursing program. So this means I need to commit myself to this weight loss journey and focus on my goals. NO MORE EXCUSES. I'm so mad at myself that I pretty much gave up. I'm going to cut me some slack though till after Christmas cause I don't even have all my shopping done or stuff to prepare for my daughter's birthday party. When I restart this weight loss journey I want that to be the biggest thing I am focusing on.

Hope everyone has a great rest of the week :]


this picture was taken tonight and made me realize that I need to get back to work!!!

Just an Update :]

Thursday, November 19, 2009

emoticon I decided to write a blog since its been awhile. I havent been as active on Spark as I usually am. I still love yall though! School has been keeping me busy so I sign on when I can and update some little things. As soon as school is done I'm going to be able to be more gung ho about this weight loss thing cause I'll have plenty of time and I won't be able to use time as an excuse. So, come on Dec. 16! lol


emoticon I love my workout Wednesdays with my bestie :] I wish we could work out more. Itd prolly be easier if we lived a little closer to each other too. But while at her place we wanted to see if I could fit into her size 11 jeans. And what do ya know... I did! And I actually liked how they fit on me too. I might have to get me a pair. lol.

emoticon My weekend to TN went by way too fast. My two baby nieces are absolutely adorable! I'll have to come back to this blog and post pics. While down there I swear I ate everything sin site and felt like a huge cow. But I weighed in yesterday and had no gain so that was pretty exciting :]

emoticonThanksgiving is next week and I am super excited! Thanksgiving is my absolute most favorite holiday. Hopefully I won't gain too much while I'm gone for 5 days!! We have a family football game so I'll be getting a workout in. lol.

emoticon Hope everyone has a great rest of the week!

    Remember to eat lots of the veggies and plenty of the turkey, they both have the least calories then fill your plate with just a little of all the other stuff, eat slow and enjoy!

Don't go back for seconds - remember you can eat the leftovers another meal!

My 30 Day Shred Journey

Friday, November 13, 2009

emoticon I AM FINALLY DONE WITH 30 DS!!!!!!! It only took me about 2 1/2 months to finish it but I finally crossed the finish line!!

emoticonMy 30 DS journey was definitely a long one. At first I was real gung ho about it and knocked out the first 15 days. I had great results and was really happy with myself. It was fun to do and I always made sure that I got my Shred workout in for the day. The last half was the part that took F O R E V E R!! I was in a funk mode and had stuff going on so I was doing Shred like one day a week. Then it also got boring doing the same level each day one after another. Before I had bought the DVD I thought it was 30 different workouts... I was wrong. lol. I didn't think it was going to be that big of a deal but it was. It got boring fast. But now if I need a quick workout and can't fit anything in I'll do one of the Shred workouts.

emoticonNow that I am done with Shred I am going to start of on TJ Cardio Party 2 that my bestie let me borrow. I'm pretty excited to see what all TJ has in store for me :]


emoticonHappy Friday the 13th. (that's as close to black cat i could find. lol) and see yall when I come back from TN :]

    Thanks for sharing. I've still only done it once, but I don't plan on doing it daily, and honestly, I don't know if I'm going to set a time frame on it. i appreciate your comments though. It's definitely something to think about - especially the getting bored with it part. I tend to get bored with things pretty quickly.
