A new year a new me?

Thursday, January 03, 2013

So it was New Year's Eve, and while I had planned on a night of pizza, drinking, and football, I still went to the gym at my normal time like i always do I do 5 days a week. As I was talking to my trainer, I realized something.. This was the first time ever I was in the gym on New Year's Eve, and on that note, how many people can say that?

Every year I plan on a new year, and a new me, and what I am going to prove, and the weight I am going to lose.

New Years Eve I realized that there is no new me to work on this year. I have really turned it out this past year, and all I want to do is to continue my journey. I really do have a better outlook. I actually achieved the new me so to say. I lost almost 40 lbs. I have become an addict( in a good way) to working out, and finding new seasonings to add to my veggies. I got a brand new wardrobe, and can now fit quite comfortably into a size 6. And in changing over how I take care of myself I have changed my outlook on life, lifted my stress, and have to come to a great appreciation for what i have, not what i dont.

So a new me I do not need, a continuance with my path, and my plan, and maybe a little more relaxation absolutely! But for once I am not making a resolution or planning to start anything on Monday!!!!!

SLow and steady wins the race!

Tuesday, December 18, 2012

Its been a couple of months since i have put something on here. While i havent been completely consistent. i am slowly approaching my goals.

I have dropped 30 something since January, but the real results are me jumping into a size 6, dropping a bra size, and seeing what i think are the beginning of some abs.

Moreover its what i have changed almost permanently that has really been the ever growing improvement. I have stopped all soda, and can be found with a water bottle in my hands at all times. My little cheat days are more like special occasions now, and my cheating is actually more calorie conscious than i realize. On my birthday instead of gorging on everything, my cheat was some pita and hummus, and a bottle of wine.

I am not quite there yet, but i am moving toward a permanent lifestyle that i never thought i would be doing, and its my new goals that have me more excited than losing weight!! emoticon emoticon emoticon

So the weight isnt coming off as quickly as I would like this time around.

And I feel as if I have hit a plateau.

However something awesome happened this week. My Scale broke! So I havent been on it in like 9 days, and I decided to measure myself for the first time in months.

I am so proud, I have lost 4 inches off my waist, 3 off my hips, and 3 off my thighs!

And before I measured myself i was hopping on the scale every few days to see that it wasnt moving very much.

So it goes to show that you dont need a scale after all!:)

    You are so right, it's not just the weight you need to look at, otherwise you will tend to get a little down in the dumps. The scale doesn't move, but things are changing on your body that shows different.

I measured myself a few weeks back to see I was down an inch everywhere. Now having issues with my bra's, 36C doesn't cut it anymore and when I bought 34C's the cup sizes are smaller. Not quite sure how the heck that works. A C should be a C no matter what. Oh well.

I hate bugs!!!!!

Who needs a workout when you can spend the entire day scrubbing your house from a tick infestation?

Not this girl!. I am almost certain i burned enough calories from heavy cleaning over the past week to equal a 45 minute workout with my trainer.

So a pregnant tick found its way on to my very long haired and very big dog.

Did you know ticks can lay hundreds of eggs? And that they are they most disgusting looking bugs i have ever seen. Yuck yuck yuck.

So over the last week and a half we have given our very large puppy two doses of frontline , a specially designed tick collar. We have vacuumed and bleached our house. We have sprayed inside and outside of our house for bugs, and we have had the professionals come and do the same, And the little nasties are still falling off my dog like candy from of a pinata!!!

I dont' think i have been so frustrated and angry at a living creature in my entire life, but if I could get away with it i would burn my house down, shave my head, and my dog, and dip us all in bleach for a week straight, and would still not feel right!!!

I hate bugs!!!

    You are not the only one. We didn't have a winter, so we have a flea problem. I am the one that washes the animals, and Yes, I am tired. JoAnn is cleaning carpets this coming week end, I can hardly wait. Sorry about your problem.

Size 6

Friday, August 31, 2012

I went to try on a bridesmaid dress for my friends wedding yesterday, and I needed a size six!! I was shocked! I wasnt even a size 6 in high school, just a size above it. The funny thing is i have been on this plataeu for a little while losing 6 pounds in the last 3 months. so the fact that my body has reshaped and gotten smaller despite my crawl on wieght loss is amazing, and it motivates me too, b/c i know that i almost there!!!

More good news, i now have 2 people coming t my house every couple of days, to use all of my fitness gear and workout with me when i am not with my trainer, and one of them has signed with my trainer too,, he is so proud.

So not only am i progressing, but i am spreading the spark like wild fire and loving it!!!:0
