******WARNING******

There is going to be a lot of awesomeness the next few inches... are you ready????


******BEHOLD******






Actually, all joking and kidding aside, I can REALLY see a huge difference in my body. In the few months that I have been doing PC Fit I have really noticed a difference in the way my body looks and feels. I wish the pictures truly illustrated The definition that I can see. It is hard because of the loose skin too. Lucky for me, my arms aren't too horrible. My tattoo also looks pretty awesome.

My friend actually took these when I got home from PC Fit tonight, thus why I am making silly faces.

I had a few friends over for the premier of American Horror Story. I made

Salsa Chicken Chili

World's best spinach and artichoke dip
recipes.sparkpeople.com/recipe-detai
l.asp?recipe=504688


I had baked corn chips and baby carrots for dipping.

For desert I made a "Cherry Pie Angelfood Cake" Which is nothing more than a 1 stop angelfood cake mix and a can of light pie filling mixed together and baked.

My friends loved it. It was good, and healthy.

I hope all of my Spark friends had a wonderful day!

Dressing Room Fun (photo)

Tuesday, October 08, 2013

I saw this dress in the kid's section at Sears. It is a size 16. It was a little tight in the rib cage, but otherwise fit well. If it were a size bigger I would have bought it.



We were laughing uncontrollably and hysterically. I am really surprised that they didn't call mall security on us!

Of course this was nothing compared to us at the Lingerie Boutique. She came in the dressing room to assist. You know you have a BFF for life when she helps stuff you into a corset... LOL

i hope all of my spark friends had a wonderful day and a fantastic evening.

sexy photo shoot

Monday, October 07, 2013

No... I won't be posting any of the pics, but I finally got the confidence to allow my boyfriend to take some sexy photos of me.

As I am looking at these pictures, I am REALLY noticing the definition in my muscles. I can't stop staring at some of them. The definition in my biceps and triceps is amazing! My thighs too! It is pretty amazing!

There is lots of loose skin, but I still feel pretty amazing! Looking at those pictures has made me realize how far I have come!

I never thought I would have the confidence to allow someone to take photos of me like that. Granted, I am not naked in any of them, and I am "covered" but only with a skimpy number from Victoria's Secret!

I feel confident, and sexy and pretty dang awesome!

Oh, and my house smells awesome because I am making Apple Cinnamon Overnight Oatmeal!

Grandparents Just Don't Understand...(photos & fitspo)

Thursday, October 03, 2013

I checked in today at the gym on Facebook. My grandmother commented
"Please honey don't be over doing!"

I don't think my Grandmother understands. After all of these years, I have finally come into my own. I have finally found my stride. I have finally found something that makes me happy.

I don't think she understands that this is a fire burning inside of me. I don't think she understands that I can't quench this thirst. I've said it before, and I will say it again - the high I get from the gym is better than any high I have ever gotten in my life. It is like heroine mixed with cocaine and triple dipped in ecstasy.


Right now, I am so sore . My entire body hurts. My muscles are screaming and I am loving every second of it.

Class was awesome today. I lifted heavier and pushed myself harder.


and this is sooo true! My old workout is now pretty much my warm up.



again, this is sooo true!

Anyway, Class tonight was amazing. I was really feeling it. Gretchen and I motivated each other. We were racing while we bear crawled, and when I thought I was going to not be able to make it any further she yelled "Come on Cortney"! and I did the same thing for her.

I can't even describe the level of awesome it was.

Now, I am watching Season 5 of True Blood, and having a much deserved glass of vino

I'm sure your G-ma just wants you to be careful. Don't be discouraged, just know she cares about you and her heart is in the right place.

Keep doing what you're doing!

    love the "glass" of wine...especially the HK glass haha
Alot of my friends don't understand why i'm doing this either.I don't know why i've been kind of pushed aside just because i'm making positive HEALTHY changes for myself. its not like i'm doing drugs or other destructive things....so weird. Keep at it & keep kicking major butt!

    parents and grandparents dont always see how we progress so they tend to worry to much. They generally want the best for us.

i also love how my old workouts have become warmups for me now.

My Everything hurts!

Wednesday, October 02, 2013

PC Fit was BRUTAL this morning! Coach Janelle really knows how to work it. I was doing things on the TRX I never thought I would be able to do. I am totally paying for it right now.

Support group was good. We talking about emotional eating. I already know I am one of those, so it was pretty helpful. Dona gave us a "hunger scale" which I plan on hanging on my fridge and one on my desk at work. I think it will be a very helpful tool for me.

If I am not too sore, I am going to hit PC Fit tomorrow, then I have Season 5 of True Blood to watch! Yay!

Looking forward to watching Nashville tonight
