July Challenge: On the road to FREEDOM !!!!!

Friday, July 08, 2011

OK

~*~ We are half way through 2011 and I want to SEE results come NEW YEAR! Join me~*~

July is here and in full affect. We are one week in 7/8/11 So we have about 3 weeks to get going and reach our goals! I have lost 3 pounds so far this month and remembered that we have not Set our monthly challenge yet.

How about a JULY challenge to lose 5 pounds in the remaining THREE weeks of JULY! And the challenge is called on the road to FREEDOM because each step we take in a positive direction is bringing us that much closer to our ultimate goal. And I'm not sure about you, but my ULTIMATE goal is to be free of the pain of not being completely satisfied with my body and knowing that I could do something about it if I just stay focused. So if anyone is interested, sign up here (in the message board of GMIH) and lets just focus on the next few weeks to get a little closer to our ultimate goal.

Here are the guidelines:
1. Drink 6 glasses of water a day. (count them. So when you check in you can say you did it)
2. Eat 3 fruits/veggies a day. - may I suggest one with each meal, if that would help you stay focused and remember?
3. Do something active everyday. Doesn't have to be much; one trip around the block in your neighborhood, one extra flight of stairs, 20 punches or push ups before bed. whatever. Just do something active DAILY.
4. Do 30 mins of planned exercise at least THREE days a week for the next THREE weeks.
5. At the end of each day, write what you did correctly AND give yourself a compliment.

There we go, 5 steps to lose hopefully 5 pounds by the end of JULY.

If you don't make it there completely, that's fine. But remember, on the road to FREEDOM every step/every pound counts. (even losing 3 lbs a month would leave you 18 lbs lighter by the end of the year.... and 18 POUNDS is a big deal.)

Ok team, you've been challenged. Now, MAKE IT HAPPEN! emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

Oh and all those who participate and/or reach the 3 pound goal get a GOODIE!!!!!!

    Great plan, excited for this, it is simple and I like that. You said were the team was but I don't know what GMIH stands for - help please!

I do not have a scale, how should I weigh myself before/after? Maybe go to a friends?

I am going to blog each day with how I do.

Thanks for coming up with this!

We will all rock July!

Project Beautiful Bombshell: Day 98: QUICK vacation update

Friday, June 24, 2011


Im back from my cruise, still looking AND feeling good. :-) I ate the things I wanted but in moderation... and don't think I had a real dessert the entire time. I didn't gain too much weight (what I did gain was likely from salt retention... but a week and lots of water will show my true weight) and did SOMETHING active every day! Stairs, running on the track, walking miles in the cities :-) So I'm happy and feeling free.

I start work next week, so I will get back to my regular rotation pretty soon so I can continue the weight loss.

I HAVE INTERNET NOW!!! WOOHOOO
Hope you all had a great week!

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.

    That's very commendable. I know its hard trying to exercise while your sick. No fun at all. But I applaud you for trying to keep some kind of routine. emoticon

    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.
