project Beautiful Bombshell: Day 54: Some INTERESTING results

Tuesday, May 10, 2011

OK, so I'm gonna be quick.

I am actually sorting clothes and beginning my packing to move journey. I'll start with my INTERESTING RESULTS... I found my weight loss journal/scrapbook in an attempt to take my measurements and make sure I had a STRONG reference point for this journey.

I found the measurements from a YEAR AGO. They are as such, I have gained 8 lbs since then. BUT I have a total of MINUS 0.5 inches. So, I'm thinking though I gained weight overall some of it must be muscle. ALSO, and :::warning TMI, men, close your eyes/ears LOL::: my bust has grown THREE SOLID inches. What in the WORLD is happening. [NO birth control and NO pregnancy.... just big boobs all of a sudden] lol. And everywhere else lost inches or at least some centimeters. :-D

Bust in 2010: 36 inches
rib cage below bust 31 inches (2010) .

Bust in 2011:39 INCHES!?!?!?!? [ i triple checked]
rib cage below bust: STILL 31 inches

Went from 34C----34 D that's tight.

Now I know that was TMI... but I wanted to explain because I that means if I hadn't had the breast growth I would have had a higher net loss of inches.

Either way, for a year of turmoil and stress... the NET + 8 lbs and -.5 inch isn't that bad. and I'm happy to know where I am so I can go where I'm headed with a CLEAR PLAN.


---------------------
My closet clean out plan. I'm currently wearing size 10 pants, size 8 dresses, medium/large shirts. I used to be in size 8 pants.

So I'm keeping 10 size 8 pants and 4 size 6's. That means I will be giving away almost 30 pairs of jeans. OR MORE. But I think of how more useful they will be ON someone's body versus in a bin in my closet. and I'm NOT taking all this baggage to my new house.

Any tips for where to take the clothes? I'm going to give a lot away to charity but I have a LOT to get rid of... and a little money before a move never hurts... IDEAS!?

    Great progress. I'd go with Salvation Army or Goodwill. I think a garage sale is a good idea, but you would have to find more stuff to give away. Good Luck! emoticon

    I would find a nice consignment shop to take them too...you can get a little money from them (not sure how much)...or have a yard sale....you can charge what you want for them...maybe $5 a pair....

But kudos to you for cleaning out your closet...you are right..it's much better for them to be put to good use!!!

You rock sis!

Project Beautiful Bombshell: Day 49

Thursday, May 05, 2011

HEY Everyone!

What a busy week. I've had my car break down for 3 days, been packing, and now I'm sick with what started off as a VERY sore throat and ended with me having bronchitis. So now, I'm stuck with VERY tight lungs that require me to use my inhaler frequently and will probably need a nebulizer soon.

Yesterday I still worked out. I didn't do much but enough to feel active. I did 10 mins on bike 8 min walk and sauna. That was the most I could do and not feel too weak from being sick.

I made out a schedule to insure that I will reach my goal. There are about 11 weeks between now and my 26th birthday. I am planning to be at my Second major goal by then and be LIVING IN THE 140'S again. :-)

I will have been in residency for 3 weeks by the time my birthday comes so I will need to have GOOD HABITS in place before then to insure that I can keep it up despite being sleep deprived and stressed.

I was reading some fitness magazines the other night and I realized I am DEFINITELY going to reach my goal. I've said it before. But I think it's worth re-mentioning. There is NO reason that I, knowing what I know/wanting what I want/and being willing to work for it, wouldn't be able to reach my goal.

And therefore I step forward with the knowledge that every good choice I make will bring me closer to my goal of maintaining a healthy weight and eating nutritious foods on a regular basis. I also look forward to making most of my meals and getting back to enjoying the art of cooking.

I am capable.

I will reach my goals.

I have done an AWESOME job balancing ALL the things on my plate thus far.

and I will continue to Rock it.

Until I become

The Beautiful Bombshell that I already am inside. :-)

Now, time to Make it Happen.

    Yea that's true! Luckily I was in the gym alone [we have a small gym at my apartment that rarely gets used], sanitized the machines after use and wasn't coughing... So we should be good. :-)

Unlike other people, I workout to maintain a good mood... :-) I don't have to do much of it.... but there's only so much being cooped in the house (sick or not) that I can take. :-D

Glad you feel better!

    Good job making it to the gynm despite feeling sick. I know a lot of people are against that because you could get others sick but I remember being deathly ill and going to the gym and getting on the bike and just sweating it out. It loosened up all the mucus in my lungs. And then I sat in the sauna for like 15 minutes and after going home and showering I was exhausted. Once I woke up though I felt SOOO much better.

Project Beautiful Bombshell:Day 30

Sunday, April 17, 2011

I have done well. :-)

Working out each day, making sure I do SOMETHING active-even if it is just some pushups, crunches, punches, and kicks at 1 am before I go to bed on a particularly busy day!

Off to run on treadmill for 45 mins before my meeting at 4 pm. always a time crunch. :-/ But I LOVE how I feel after a workout. I am getting my body back! One workout at a time!

Ttyl!

Project Beautiful Bombshell: Day 18 Always Remember

Tuesday, April 05, 2011

Well, My status today was about how i had to remind myself that it IS possible for me to reach my weight loss goals.

And, for some of you, this may never be an issue.

But for me, I woke up this morning feeling like all the calories I've counted, all the miles I've run, all the times I've said NO when i wanted to say yes... meant nothing.

Because as far as I am concerned, I am still fat. Yes the dreaded F word. The word that makes me cringe when I THINK others THINK it about me.

I started thinking about how all the people who are meeting me for the first time see me as a big girl. My old friends at least know I was small and in shape at one point. But these new people, they'll never believe I've run TWO marathons, TWO half marathons, and LOTS of other races.

I mean, shoot I barely believe it myself when I see what the scale tells me every single morning.

I don't like to feel like this. I don't like thinking what I'm doing is not working. But, I do realize that at this moment all I can do, is keep doing the right thing. and PRAY my body remembers what it used to be. How it used to feel slipping into my 8's and prancing around like I was on top of the world. No longer caring what others think.

But until then, I'll just strap on my running shoes and keep running until I remember.

    I enjoy reading your blogs. You just have a way of getting it out there and projecting your emotions. We all have days when it feels futile, but they pass. If you just keep doing the things you know you need to do you will reach your goals!
If I had your motivation when I was your age.......wow!
Keep up the good work and keep sharing your thoughts and dreams. You are an inspiration to the rest of us!

    To be honest, when I first saw your page, I thought "sexy woman with a beautiful face, gorgeous hair, and amazing smile." When I saw your workout photo, I thought "motivated, muscular, and young." I never, ever thought the f word. A lot of gals and guys on this site are here to be fit; some people aren't striving to lose weight, so you never really know what a person is up to until you read their page. You look great, but if YOU want to lose weight and it would be healthier, I think you are on the right track. Go you! emoticon

    We all have our moments when we feel down, and you just had one of those today. It is ok, get back up look your self in the mirror and acknowledge that you are a beautiful, bright and accomplished woman. You have a winning smile and from what I see of you from you pic you are not what you see. Throw away the scale start looking and how your clothes are fitting you and thanking (whoever) that you are healthy and about to embark on a remarkable future. You Rock, acknowledge it !!!!

    It never gets completely easy to face ourselves day to day, even when we're confident we can reach the goal, eh? Remember how much good you have done for yourself, and how much you've learned; how far you've come--and all you are going to accomplish! Yours is an exciting future; don't let doubts hold you back!

    Thank you both! Deep down I know I'm doing exactly what I need to do, and hopefully I'll feel awesomely SPARKED tomorrow! LOL today was just one of those days I guess! I will weigh once a wk (well record once a wk. I tend to get on daily) and I'm sure the scale will keep moving because so far I have been progressing pretty well thus far :)

Thank you both for the encouragement!

    I think they will see a wonderful, beautiful lady with a great attitude when they first meet you...you know we are our worst critics so you should never forget all that you have accomplished on this journey...more than what some "skinny" people have I am sure....you had been ROCKING it in all areas of your life so don't take anything away from that!!!!

Love ya!

    May I suggest you only weigh once a week. By weighing everyday, you are focusing too much on the scale. Just stick to your recommended calories and your exercise. If you weigh and measure once a week, then you should see some progress after a while. Of course, you might check your other nutrients besides calories, since you want a balanced diet.

Project Beautiful Bombshell: Day 5 :-) With Pics

Friday, March 25, 2011

Waited till 11:50 to do my workout... but I did 30 mins of boxing/kickboxing and it was awesome!
I've lost my real camera... so this is just a cell phone pic to show me after my Midnight boxing workout. Ready to reach my goal! :-D

Match day 3.17.11
An exciting day!


Night Night. :-)

Oh, just because I just found this picture... This is me at 130-135 in college. I think I looked amazing! And though I was happy at that size I ALWAYS wanted to be 120 or lower. Funny how time changes things. My ultimate goal is 115 BUT if I get to 130 and look and feel how I felt in this pic, I'll be happy. And I may stop there (You know and continue to tone)

    I don't know for my height going to 125lbs my family would be thinking I was sick or something. I mean its good for some people who are 5'6 and models but for me a mommy & grandmommy I think 135-147 would be grand. Its begins with us! I think if you decided to do 118 it would cool. You are beautiful!!

God bless & continued success!
