Well.. I've decided to start a blog. I'm not sure what it is about exactly... and I'm sure it will be a little bit of everything (Fitness, Natural hair, inspiration, me!). I enjoy writing and taking pictures so I figured that I could put them together and blog something as often as I can remember. Getting off to a slow start... Who better to tell about it than my Spark friends. If it picks up I'll let you know! :)

http://lovelylynee.blogspot.com/ and I'm on twitter incase anyone wants to follow me there! I'll follow back (just let me know how I know ya) @Lovely_Lynee

PIC update!! 5/18/12

Friday, May 18, 2012

Hmm... what can I say... I've been working out daily. Trying to eat better. Scale is moving slowly but not much. Down 2 more pounds. I think by my birthday I will be even more amazing... if I keep this up!

Let me celebrate for a sec::::: NSV: Someone I hadn't seen at work in a few months said (randomly during a lecture) "Did you lose weight!?!?"
emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

I am leaving for Vegas in 5 days... and I can't wait!! :-) It's gonna be SOOOO amazing. :) I was trying on bathing suits this morning (because I thought I should start packing soon) and found this one. I hated it when I first put it on, took a pic and saw the pic didn't look too bad. When I look down at my body I feel like it's flabby. I think it's because I know the # on the scale is not really moving BUT I do like how I look in this suit. and.... I MADE A PROMISE THAT I WOULD TREAT MYSELF WELL AND BE KIND TO ME! and thus, I am not saying any bad things about myself.


I am amazing.

I am lovable and loved.

My body is EXACTLY as it should be at this moment... and so, may I present:



So sparkpeople... Is it Vegas worthy!?!?!? emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

    Looking good! I read once that 80% of people have an unrealistic impression of how they look. So, listen to all the positive feedback here! Remember the scale doesn't tell the entire story. The muscle definition of your abs and legs: definite NSV's!

HOW MUCH!?

Wednesday, May 09, 2012

So I've been sick all week... and my appetite has been down. Today I had a boiled egg and 2 oz of turkey sausage for breakfast and soup for lunch. Then I thought, oh... I'll get this brownie sundae... because I want it and I think it'll be yummy. And you know what, it was DELICIOUS. After I ate it, I decided to add it to my food diary. I'm trying to stay honest. Do you know that brownie had 1290 CALORIES!!!!!!!!!!!???!!!!?????

WHAT IN THE WORLD~?

It was delicious but it was NOT worth THAT many calories.

But no regrets. I chose to eat it and I enjoyed it. But I did think twice about the next time I randomly decide to treat myself. I thought, man... this must be why they say to PLAN YOUR MEALS before you eat. If I had known it was 1290 cals I would not have consciously chosen to eat it. If I did choose to eat it, I would have eaten only a part (but really... is the 1/2 of a brownie worth 600 cals? Probably not. So next time, I'll just make it from scratch).

And the better news,

Because I logged my food, I was AWARE of the fact that I just consumed a day's worth of cals in ONE dessert and I was able to WORK IT OFF!

Burned 1150 calories during my 2 hour workout and felt amazing afterward. I think my cold is getting better AND I don't have any guilt about the brownie.

You live and you learn :-)

    Why is it when we feel sick we want comfort foods?? I feel it is better to curl up on the couch and pull the blankets up to my chin and sip hot tea!!

    Well, if I get a brownie craving, I eat one of the Fiber One 90 calorie brownies. Probably not as sinfully delicious, but still it is a brownie!

Before I got on SP, I wouldn't have known to check the calories!

    When I eat brownie or anything like that I have no regrets...I refuse to beat myself up about enjoying something...life is too short but I try to balance everything out...just like you did!!! Moderation is key...so is happiness!!!

Keep up the wonderful job!!

    Amazing with your cals burned, you must really move! Mmm brownie sundae sounds good, but as you said a homemade one could be even better (and healthier). No regrets, you enjoyed it, it's life right?

The Great Reveal: LOTS of pics :-)

Saturday, May 05, 2012

Hey guys!! I'm back from my vacation!!

Warning... TMI: TOM decided he would join me on this vacation though I planned and worked out and wanted him to stay away so I could look my best! I decided that I had waited long enough to put this darn bikini on and strut my stuff... so I did it anyway... bloated and all! :-) So now I have 2.5 weeks until I head to Las Vegas with the new beau. Time to get re-focused and try to slim down, or maintain.

Oh and the vacation was AMAZING. My friend and I got along so well and had a GREAT time. She has lost 80 lbs on her own and she was strutting her stuff in her bikini and looked A-M-A-Z-I-N-G. We even did a kickboxing session taught by yours truly!!! :-) We burned 500+ cals that day. We also took the stairs everywhere we went, walked often, and went to the gym while on our cruise!


I am proud that I've made this a lifestyle and you know what... people know me for my workouts and I LIKE that!
