It's only January, but as I was perusing Pinterest today, I saw this and it struck a cord with me. Thought I'd share with you all! Get to work. Bathing suit season is right around the corner!!

Well, I could go on and on about how I've been depressed lately. About how I need to do this, or want to do that. But ya know what? I'm not gonna!
I put on my big girl panties last week and sucked it up and started working out again. It feels wonderful. Why did I stop doing this and let myself go, AGAIN? I don't know.. that's for another blog.
So, back to working out today. I did my "Hip Hop Abs, cardio sculpt" workout for 30 minutes today (and if you've never done it- I highly recommend it if you need to switch up your workout every now and then. SO FUN). Not only was I ALL over the place, but my "bazoombas" were as well. You're laughing, ok I am too, but it's a serious matter!
So, my question for all you other busty SP women is: What kind of sports bra do you wear that fully supports you and your 'girls'?? I mean, I'm talkin' DD + and isn't going to cost me a fortune because I am currently on unemployment.
Have a great weekend ladies!

I like to drink.
I like wine.
I like beer.
I like alcohol period.
We all know alcohol lowers your inhibitions.
For me, this means it makes me not care about what I put in my mouth.
I will eat anything not good for me; chips, cookies, bread, anything processed and refined. And not just a little. A lot. I mean, A LOT, A LOT.
I keep kicking myself for re-gaining all this weight. I can blame it on not exercising consistently, having one too many "cheat days," or just generally being lazy. I could blame it on losing my job. Or not having a vehicle anymore.
No matter what I blame it on, there seems to be ONE single contributing factor for me. And, it's alcohol. ANYTIME I have just one too many glasses of wine, or one too many beers I eat. Not only do I eat, but I LOSE SLEEP. Losing sleep for me is even worse than the eating. Because then, not only do I eat the night of the drinking, but I wake up feeling tired, groggy, and sometimes hungover.. which makes me want to EAT the next day too!
SOOOO.. I needed to write this blog because I had to put this in writing. I had to admit to this, not just in my head anymore.
I'm not going to stop drinking completely.
But, I am going to cut down. I am going to cut up a bunch of veggies. I need something easy to grab. I am going to drink water every other drink when I go out.
I will stop not caring, and care about myself again. This, I think, is the hardest part for me.

So today was day #2 of tracking EVERYTHING I put in my mouth!
I did wonderful up til the bf went to bed and I was left alone; just me, my fridge, and my carbs. Ugh.. I didn't binge too bad. I stopped myself half way through and thought about how I felt the other day. That helped.
So, I took a good long look at my Food Tracker totals and to my disbelief, I ate 2648 calories today. HOLY MOLY!! That is 1100 calories MORE than I needed.
Really looking at it from a numbers perspective, well it made sense. And, it really sunk in that I'm doing this to myself and I have no one else to blame. I cannot sit here and wonder why I'm overweight when I look at how much I am really eating. Pretty disgusting, actually. It's astonishing how fast those calories add up, eh?!
Truth hurts, but it's forcing me to look at it for REAL. And it's forcing me to look deep down within to see why it is that I keep doing this to myself!
