Back with a little help from a higher power.

Sunday, August 01, 2010

I decided that after being away for so long, I really need to start using SP again! I find it helps me see my progress and keep tabs on my calorie intake. A few things have changed since my last blog... I have a new job that I love! I am now a claims adjuster with Infinity Insurance here in Birmingham, got a new Honda Fit in January, and I recently rededicated my life to Christ. He has made me more joyful than any food ever could and I know with his help and determination I can get these pounds off. I am ready to start living the life He wants me to live! I have also reconnected with a friend and my sweet cousin Ashley. I feel blessed that I have so many around me that will always be there and support me.

If you live in the Birmingham area and need a workout buddy or would like someone to go to church with, then I am your girl! Please email me at I rarely check my SP mail.

Just a bump in the road...

Tuesday, April 06, 2010

A few days after my last post I was laid off. I tried staying positive, but the stress got to me. I gained about 10lbs over the past few months and I am so bummed about it! I did go on a few interviews and may have a great job opening up for me soon. I need to keep my goals in my mind and not let this destroy my weight loss. Richelle and I are going to workout tomorrow so that will be a big plus! I just need to get myself to that gym more than once every few weeks! So I am back to tracking my food/water intake and working out :)

I have the best guy ever!

Charlie and I had a wonderful Valentine's day! We had planned to go to Waffle House and be very low key, but he ended up taking me to Village Tavern for a wonderful dinner. We spent the day together and he gave me a super sweet card, ladybug for my car, and a super cute box of candies (ladybug box) I had a blast! I am a lucky girl!

Sickly me...

Thursday, February 11, 2010

I have been under the weather big time for the past week. Sinus infection and chest congestion. I did lose 10 lbs this month, almost down to pre-holiday weight :). Work is going good. We are very busy this time of year (tax season) and that makes the day go by much faster. No much more than that going on for me. Charlie and I are going to visit the Church of the Highlands this Sunday. I watched the last sermon online and I am so ready for the next part. Great message!


Morning gym time?

Friday, January 29, 2010

So I decided instead of evening workouts, I want to start going before work. So I am not an early riser but, I am going to try this out and see how it works for me. Hopefully I will have more energy during the day and want to make better food choices also. So my question is when do you workout?? Morning? Noon? Night? What works best for you?

    So I found out no matter how badly I want to be...I am not a morning person! Back to after work gym time for me.

    I work out after work. It works better for my schedule since I go to work early, but leave early as well. I don't want to wake up early enough to work out and shower before work. I sometimes wish I could though because I know I'd have more energy throughout the day
