Getting down to business.

Monday, November 23, 2009

Well I had my celebration weekend and it was fun, but now it's time to refocus and reformulate my plan. So here is my focus this week.

1. Drink 8 cups of water per day. (I am really bad at this and sometimes I think I eat- when I am actually thirsty)

2. No more fast food. ( I slipped and had mc donalds fries on Sunday-felt like crap afterward)

3. No more eating after 7pm. ( just need to stay out of the kitchen)

4. hit the gym atleast 4 days this week ( I need the endorphins- I'm a junkie:)

5. keep more connected to sparkpeople, nutrition log, fitness log, friends(especially friends)

I have kinda slacked off (OK really slacked off) lately. I have only lost .8 lbs this month - which sucks. I just need to get back on the plan. I'm setting a new mini goal of losing 75 lbs by Christmas that's 14.6lbs by then, that's about 1/2 lb. per day.

Begging my sparkfriends to hold me accountable!!!!! I'll post my progress on th 5 goals this week, every night in my status.

Getting ready to celebrate!!!!!!

Wednesday, November 18, 2009

Well, tomorrow is the big day. It is the day that I reward my self for all the hard work I have done to lose 63 lbs. in 6 months. So I will paint my toes, put on some fabulous clothes, eat a great dinner and then watch the movie I have been dying to see for what seems like forever. I hit my goal plus 13 extra pounds off. I feel like a different person!!!! So tomorrow I celebrate, friends, life, love, and proving to myself once and for all that "nothing is impossible" . I hope all my twi-sparkfriends have a blast at the premier tomorrow. I 'll be thinking about all of you. And to all my dorkville teammates tommorow will be a "party in the USA"!!!! I'll post pics. as soon as I can!!!!

my body.

Sunday, November 15, 2009

today while I was weighing in my 9 year old said "what happened to your stomach ?" I was wearing short tank top and he could see my stretch marks. I'm 5'1" tall and my kids weighed over 9lb.s ( that's what I get for mating with a giant:) so to say the least my stretchmarks are many. I am very self conscious about them. So I told him " being pregnant with you guys really stretched my stomach" . Then I was thinking back to my post a couple days ago where i said " I love my new body" and it really made me think about the fact that you know what, i have alot of stretch marks because my body can do amazing things. My body gave birth to 3 baby's naturally - that is bound to leave a mark. Yeah my stomach has stretchmarks and yes my breasts are a little droopy and my feet are now a size 8 instead of a size 7, but my body has been through alot and I'm starting to see that those stretch marks that I hate so much are like battle scars- proof that my body is strong and can survive a lot. Yes I will never be able to wear a bikini again (Never much of a bikini girl anyway- very conservative upbringing) but I will make an effort to remind my self, when I see those stretch marks that , I earned those stripes. and my body is amazing.

    Good attitude!

Embrace those stretch marks. (I'm trying to do the same.)

stepping out of my usual style.

Saturday, November 14, 2009

my clothing style is what I like to call romantic casual. simple classics with a hint of romance. So yesterday I went shopping for the premier and started by looking at the usual suspects, lacy tunic tops, buttondowns with a little rouching. But then I walked to the juniors section (I know, the junior section, just the thought made me smile) and I saw this shirt hanging on the rack - not my usual style- a little too rocker chic for me but I thought - what the heck and added it to my pile. When I got to the dessing room , I tried a bunch of stuff on ( which all fit by the way- how cool is that) I almost didn't try it on again( not really my style) but my 4 yr old son said" you forgot to try on that one" SO I put it on and I loved it. Usually I follow the rule "fat neck = v-neck" but my neck looked good , guess I no longer have a fat neck, huh. since the blouse is see through and black I paired it with a red tank top ( with just a hint it lace on the straps- I had to sneak a little me in there:) some awsome low rise dirty washed jeans and the coolest long necklaces with these cool key charms and these adorable shoes. Anywho.... When I got home and tried them on my hubby walked in and said "wow- you look hot ". ( which earned him some major brownie points) and I looked in the mirror and thought - I kinda do.

So there's a little rocker chic inside the casual romantic - who'd have thunk it....

    How fun is that! You sound like you're doing awesome! Keep up the good work. It's fun to buy new clothes in a smaller size isn't it?

Can't wait to see your post after the movie!
