Book Club Night

Saturday, May 03, 2014

I meet with a book club once every 6 weeks. It's my time to relax and kick back, drink wine and chat with friends. It's not the best day calorie wise. I'll have to be careful today so that tonight isn't that bad. I'm not sure if I'll get the chance to hit the gym either, so I'll have to be creative today. I'm lucky that there is a park right behind our apartment, with a side walk that walks around it and is still close enough to the equipment. So I guess that will be my cardio today. You do what you've got to do.



Cheers to a great MAY!! emoticon

Knee feels better

Friday, May 02, 2014

Today was the first day I really feel like I got a good burn in a long time. I got on the elliptical and really pushed. I was hesitant, because of my knee, but everything was fine and it felt fantastic. Hopefully it was just a one time fluke kinda thing.... So excited to have tomorrow off. The weather has been amazingly awesome. I also have book club tomorrow night and I've not even started the book... maybe I can read it in one day?.... doubtful...

    I'm so glad that you knee fees better! Just keep plugging away. You can do it!

-Amy P
Also I host a fitness and accountability group on Facebook. Itís a private group where we check in, keep each other accountable and encourage one another on our journeys! Because it is private what you post in the group doesnít show up on your regular feed. I would love for you to join us. If you would like you can either message me your email address and I can add you that way (we donít have to be FB friends if I add you by emailÖ.. OR you can find me on Facebook and add me as a friend (facebook.com/amy.pittard). Once you add me as a friend I can add you directly to the group. I hope you join in!!

It's time to CELEBRATE!

Thursday, May 01, 2014

Today is celebration day. emoticon I've set goals and accomplished goals- therefore I'm celebrating! emoticon I've lost over 25 pounds and am feeling fantastic! emoticon While I've not reached my finish line yet, I can personally tell a difference in the way I feel and look. Especially in my face.


My progress:
From 1/10/2014 to 5/1/2014
I've lost 25.3 pounds!
My body fat is down 1.9%!
My BMI is down 4.1%!

I'm going to continue to weigh in each day, as I find it personally keeps me on track and keeps me accountable! Positive thoughts will always be my focus as without them, I'll lose my way.

April 30th Blog

Thursday, May 01, 2014

I'm proud that I weighed in every morning in April. After this little experiment, I know now, that I'm a different person this time around than I was the first time around. I'm not haunted by the scale. I don't get completely depressed or freak out if it's up a pound from one day to the next. I have a better appreciation of my body and what it can do. Perhaps it's because I've given birth to kids? Or maybe that I'm older? Who knows. It feels good to know that it's not a problem for me anymore. Weighing daily actually kept me on track for my goals and helped me accomplish what I set out to do. I will continue to do this through May as well!



Ready, set, GO! emoticon

25lbs GONE!

Tuesday, April 29, 2014

2 weeks ahead of my personal goal!!! I had set out to lose 25lbs by my birthday (5/13) and here I am!! It's amazing what one can accomplish with a little determination and positivity!! I'm so glad that I'm on this journey to change my life and be healthy! I'm so proud that my son knows what exercise is and knows that "going to the gym" is a completely normal thing for his mom to do! YAY!!
