once again here I come

Sunday, August 11, 2013

I've made the decision to get back to it. I am miserable. I have been struggling with post partum depression since I had my baby 9 months ago. Same thing happened to me when I had my son. I haven't lost my baby weight and I'm the biggest I have ever been. I can't keep doing this to myself. I need to change NOW. For my sanity. I ready for a change. I'm ready to feel comfortable around others. I'm ready to be happy. I'm ready to be healthy.

    Good for you. Once that decision is made its a part of you, nothing can get in your way but you.

Since you've had the depression issue before I'm sure you know but still I'll say, find someone to help you through it, drugs can be helpfully to balance you out but someone to talk is just as important. If it wasn't for the great ladies I worked with I don't know if I could have made it through my sons first year let alone my weight loss.

I wish you the best of luck.

I wont live by a number

Thursday, November 24, 2011

It's been 3 weeks since I started working out and I haven't weighed myself....and wont do it.

WhY? because I've been doing Insanity/zumba and I know Im probably losing inches instead of weight (i should say losing fat and gaining muscle). BUt I don't want to live by a number. I want to live by how good i feel, how much energy I have. And I've felt so good these last 3 weeks!!!!

I feel my stomach is smaller, my arms are more defined...and I feel I smile more. I'm happy, that is all that matters. If haven't "lost" any weight...who cares? That is not going to change how i feel and how I look.

I hope everyone has a safe and wonderful Thanksgiving! I couldn't miss today 's workout....When I workout in the morning I feel like it's easier to resist eating bad. And I wont miss friday's or saturday's workout either....

Have a safe one!!!

    Thanks, hope you had a good Thanksgiving too. Glad that the workouts are brightening your spirit. Feeling good is worth ignoring the scale for a while. Keep up the great work. emoticon

new opportunity

Wednesday, July 13, 2011

My job has opened up 3 positions for a different job within the office. I applied. I passed phase 1, having the qualifications, phase 2 a bit of test, and yesterday they did the last part...the interview.

They have a couple more interviews to do and then decision will be made. I'm so nervous! I really want to this position! I just keep praying that the best thing for me is what happens. Hopefully by the end of the week I have an answer. Wish me luck.

    Turns out I didn't get it! :( I'm a bit sad, but then again I know things happen for a reason. I'm sure something better awaits in the future. I love the position I'm in and my team so I have no complaints. :) Maybe next time!

I'm feeling it

Monday, July 11, 2011

I work from Sunday-Thursday. Sundays are casual wear days. Yesterday I wore jeans to work, jeans that I hadn't worn in a while because they were so tight. The scale tells me i've lost 3 lbs, and those jeans are definitely showing results!

They are still a bit tight but I can now breathe. And that was 2 weeks of working out 5x a week.

I'm ready for week 3. Can't wait until I can fit in my 2009's size 6 jeans that are in my closet! :D emoticon

I am my inspiration....

Wednesday, July 06, 2011

About 3 yrs ago when I first started my "fitness" journey, I had inspirational pictures. Pictures of magazine cut outs or famous women that I wanted to look like. By 2009 I had reached 155 lbs and a couple rounds of p90x. I was loving my results. Then for some reason life hit me and I stopped.

I have gained some of that weight back....actually most of it. But you know what? I have different inspirational pictures. This time they are my own. I can't believe I am looking at my picture from 09 and in my head I say..."I want to look like me". I was in good shape and I want to look and feel like me.

I am my inspirational picture.
