Back on it!

Friday, September 20, 2013

A lot has happened since my last blog post. My weight is still the same, maybe a few more pounds heavier but I am no longer engaged (my decision), I am now living on my own (which I am enjoying very much), I have traveled quite a bit (which makes me oh so happy), I have made some amazing and fantastic new friends (life wouldn't be the same without them) and I am slowly but surely putting together my own gym at home. Have I used the equipment I have bought for my gym? Ehhh, a few times. Not as much as I should since it's right there in my house but I just need to start making time to use them.

I have been telling myself that I need to start watching what I eat and to start hitting the gym because of so many things going on this year. I am standing in one of my really good friends wedding in November (2013) and I told myself beginning of this year that I was going to lose the weight and tone up to look and feel good. Boy did I ever fail on that. Time slipped right through my hands and here we are, mid September and I have not lost one pound. It frustrates me but I have no one to blame but myself for dropping the ball. But it's never to late right?

I'm also hosting my friend's wedding shower at my house next month, I will be going to the Lone Star Bike Rally in Galveston which will also be a girls getaway (bunch of friends rented a beach house) and I plan to look fantabulous for my 32nd bday (Dec.).

I am hoping that I can stay on track this time. I might sway from time to time but my goal is to not derail.

I am going to try to post a blog everyday even if I don't have anything much to say except 'Hi' or just to jot down how I am feeling that day.

Until Next Time...

No more excuses

Thursday, March 15, 2012

Starting today I will no longer make excuses why I can't workout.

I tell myself everyday that I am going to go to the gym after work but lately I have talked myself out of it before I get back into town (I work an hour away from home). I don't know why I do it. I know I need to work out if I ever want to feel great and be healthy again.

Even though I started out not so good this morning (Whataburger Breakfast Taco), I will finish the day off by eating right again and getting a great work out in.

I make my promise here and now, that I will blog everytime I feel down, lost, and upset instead of turning to junk food. Blog everytime I feel happy, over the moon, and awesome. I will blog what days I workout and what exercises I completed. I will also try to post pictures of myself every month to track the ugly, the bad, and the good.

Feeling blah

Wednesday, March 07, 2012

Feeling super blah today.

Last week I was feeling great, I mean really great. I started eating healthy and I started working out everyday. Then Mother Nature came to visit and it has put me in a slump. I am still eating healthy-somewhat, but I have not been to the gym since last Thursday. I also started feeling sick yesterday and today I feel so damn bloated. Ugh!!

As I am writing this blog, I feel like I am on the brink of just bursting into tears. Which would not be good right now since I am at work and there is a freaking huge window in front of my desk that faces the hallway. Will I make a run to the ladies room to vent, to let myself cry? I just might...I just might.

I know I need to shake this blah feeling away but oh it is so hard. I just need to put my running shoes back on and make my fat cry (sweat). CRY FAT CRY!!!!!

Wish me luck!

    Thanks! I am feeling better, no I didn't go cry lol. I had a meeting to go to and I walked away from donuts and kolaches. Yay Me!!!

But maybe I am feeling better b/c I put my comfy hoodie back on?

Doesn't matter, I am feeling better and I will continue to read inpsirational blogs and pictures.

    I feel ya--yesterday was my "when did I inflate like a balloon and why can't I find any pants?" day. Have hope--it gets better. Today was a new morning for me, (found pants and everything!) You're brighter day is coming too. emoticon
