Back to square one

Sunday, July 28, 2013

So slowly but surely the pounds started creeping back on and Im almost at the weight I was at when I first started trying to lose weight. Disappointing but its my own fault. Between school and interning and working and the stress of a failing marriage I simply have let myself slide. Its time to kick it back in gear. I'm registered for classes for the fall and the best part is I'm taking a dance class for my fine arts requirement. Its twice a week so not only am I a step closer to getting my degree its a weight loss tool built in =]

I just need to realize this is a setback not a failure and really commit to getting back on track.

How interesting

Tuesday, September 25, 2012

That from one day to the next or even from morning to evening you switch back and forth between feeling thin and feeling like a busted can of biscuits. Like today I was looking for a black tunic length top with short sleeves to wear under a cream cardi with these stunning cognac boots I just got. Haha specific I know. So anyway I was at tj maxx and I found this sleeveless black jersey type material minidress for $10. Trying it on I felt so fat, but ended up getting it in medium. Now I am wearing my black minidress, black leggings, cream cardie and cognac boots and I feel so cute. Even when I take the cardi off I'm like I have a pretty great shape. I just think that's so curious.

So I'm at around 145 [low 143 so that's what I'm gonna go with] but I started school and between that and work I've found myself being lazy, slacking off not going to the gym and not watching my calories as closely. Need to get back on the ball so I can look my best for photos this christmas. Maybe I'll look good enough to do side by side comparisons of this year and last years photos. =]

So this was me in highschool...this is my goal. I'm 21 so this should still be attainable

on a completely unrelated to weight note,
I started on my halloween costume [a peacock] and I think my DIY knocks the socks off everyone elses AND the store bought versions. Except possibly the really expensive burlesque costumes. =]

    So true. One day I feel thin and the next day, I feel like I still have so much work to do. But we just have to stick with it. emoticon

Nobody's perfect, but we can all do our best and work toward our goals.

I bought a pair of size 6 jeans

Tuesday, August 21, 2012

they're a little snug
but so were my 8's when I first decided to give them a try.
I have been slacking a little bit going to the gym though so I dont want to lose any progress I've made.
I bought a super cute pair of knee high boots and a dolman sweater dress to be belted at the waist for winter and it would be a shame not to be able to wear them.
Im about to start school next tuesday and between that and work Im a little concerned that Im not going to be able to find time to go work out. I'll post a photo of my progress later =]


oh gigi's...

why on earth cant you post your nutritional information online so everyone has to guess? is it because if we really knew how many calories are in one cupcake we might not eat them? That's probably true, but if im going to indulge I'd really like to know how many calories im eating so I can plan the rest of my day/week accordingly.
I ate horribly today..Woke up about 2:30 and watched harry potter for about an hour before deciding I should definitely go to the gym. Spent 40 minutes cycling..not motivated at all to do more. Plus i forgot to put on deoderant so not really wanting to stink more than I had to. Went to GiGi's and purchased two chocolate creme pie for me and one for my husband. Went to my friend's house. I feel I should mention I did shower and remember deoderant before my social outing I had a homemade rice crispie treat, about 2x3 inches..2 slices of cheeselovers with alfredo [impossible to get a good calorie count on those because pizza hut doesnt give nutritional info on square pizza, only round] a cheese stick, and 2 cinnamon sticks [two short sticks, not two long ones ignoring that cut in the middle] I did drink a bottle and a half of water with that and a bottle of water while at the gym. More than halfway done with the 23.7 oz bottle im on right now. will finish that, a 16 oz and a 20 oz before I get off work in the morning. I ate around 15-1600 calories today which i guess is not devastating and wouldnt even be bad if I had put more effort into my workout. I usually try to keep my calories at or around 1350 a day and workout at least 3 times a week if not more..That has been getting me about a half pound a week loss. So I guess I will have to find the motivation to work out intensely tomorrow. May just do Jillian michaels at home and skip the gym if the weather is anything like it is now though...
