CMA Festival 2013 Re-Cap

Tuesday, July 16, 2013

I did lose 20 pounds for my trip and felt much better than what I would have had I not. BUT, I definitely was mad at myself for not starting earlier. Just cutting out any animal products, no exercise (no time) and I lost that much weight. I'm starting today for next year. My two main goals?

1. I'd like to have a waist again.
2. FIrm non-flabby arms.

So it's all about muscle.

I know what it feels like to end up where I did with procrastination, now I'm going to tap into that feeling and use it to persist.

Sounds like a plan (again-hey! at least I don't stay down) :)

    Nothing like a pair of shorts for motivation, is there? Or a sleeve less top.

Drea's Really Busy last 24 hours ending with day one of 28 day BC

Wednesday, August 29, 2012

Boss tried to throw me under the bus - narrowly averted but now he won't speak to me. Check.
Filed for Divorce, hubby wants, but doesn't want to pay or do the actual work. Check
Ate like crap. Check.
Took out garbage. Check.
Did dishes. Check.
So so sad. Check Check Check.

So I FORCED myself to do day one of 28 day boot-camp. YAY!

A little too dancy for me, all those steps, not at all what I thought a "bootcamp" should be, but hey, I muddled through and sweat.

    Oh Sweet Pea!!! What an absolutely sucky 24 hours!!!!!! And I am amazed and in awe that you took care of yourself with a workout. Many of us would be having a pity party with my boyfriends Ben and Jerry--not you!!! YOU are who I will think of next time I make an excuse! FANTASTIC!!!!

Heavy Breathing (& not in a fun way)

Thursday, January 19, 2012

I'm logging my food. I'm trying like heck to get up at 5am to do my workout, although the past week I have been entirely unsuccessful with that lofty goal. I'm just SO tired all the time, my schedule is insane and very taxing. I know that if only I could manage it, I would, ironically, GAIN energy. Once again, another Brain Knows It-Body Doesn't Care situation.

Just walking to the elevator, you read that right, THE ELEVATOR, I was out of breath, never mind walking up the eight (8) flights.

And still have my motivators [wedding, wedding, less pain], yet I'm only down 3 pounds.

Pretty Down on Drea today.

    I too started out just like that, not being able to walk very far without pain or feeling out of breath. It DOES get better. I promise. Forget about the stairs for now and focus on what you are able to do today. Then promise yourself you will at least do that, every day, until....Every little bit makes a difference. You can do it! You are worth it! You Will succeed! emoticon

I have several motivators this time... I'm re-energized.

Sara' wedding
Hot Michelle's wedding
and the chance that less weight = less pain.

Less pain is my number one goal.

I'm doing push jump start because Chalene is a GREAT motivator and her programs make sense. I'm doing it as a teamleader because I love to motivate others, and by doing that, I think I will become accountable to myself.

I am ready to be me again.

Ready. Set. Go.
