August Update: Oh yeah!

Thursday, August 14, 2014

July Challenge was a success! I lost 7lbs and fit into my bridesmaids dress perfectly. 20 lbs total now since March!!

I started dating again. :) Met a boy. We will see how that goes. Takin' it slow.

August challenge is to lose 9 lbs to hit 170 by Sept! Going to TomorrowWorld in Atlanta so I want to be lookin' hot for that. The challenge is to get more protein and start doing more core work to loose more belly fat. That's the area I'm having the hardest time with because of Alcohol. 0_o

So I have sand volleyball about 5x week and indoor volleyball 2x a week. I postponed my crossfit classes until the cold weather sets in. I'm too busy to be paying so much and not use the membership.

Well, that's about it! Keep it real folks. Slow progress is still progress!

Day 15-21: July "No Sweets" Challenge

Monday, July 21, 2014

So I spent almost a whole week splurging. I still worked out and kept my portions down, but I had sweets left and right. As of today though, I'm back at it. I've got 12 more days till my sister's wedding.

My goals:
-Make sure I get 3x a week Crossfit
-Piyo 6X a week (I don't think this is hard at all, its just yoga to stretch out my muscles)
-Volleyball 3X week (this is easy because I don't view it as exercise)
At least 3 dog walks a week

-No sweets till Thursday (Ice cream social)
-No alcohol till Thursday (Ice cream social)
-More protein
-1 Shakeology protein shake a day

My sister's bachelorette party was a success. I hated myself Sunday. Staying hydrated this week!


Day 9-14: July "No Sweets" Challenge

Monday, July 14, 2014

I tried my bridesmaid dress on Saturday, and it zipped up easy peasy!! I Lost 17lbs total, 10 inches total: 3" off my arms, 3" off my thighs, 2" off my hips, and 2" off my chest. I feel great! I haven't had sweets at all. I've had alcohol which is my only cheat. I probably cheat with that one too much. Haha, but I'm burning so many calories with volleyball, crossfit, and dog walks/runs that I don't feel that bad, plus I make sure to get my water intake in!

So you can't see too much change, but I can tell with clothes and you can see a bit more definition. This was 5lbs ago. So pretty soon you'll see the difference in pictures. I'm going to take another picture Aug 14th. I start my PiYo challenge, which adds one more cardio/strengthening to my workouts. I'm excited!

I definitely feeling good. I'm finally on track with weight loss. My inches are great but I'd like to see a bit more movement on the scale (even though that's not my biggest concern).

My boss just added gym equipment to the conference room so I'm going to start doing PiYo at lunch! That should be easy to get motivated with it staring me in the face!

Day 3-8 of 31: July "No Sweets" Challenge

Tuesday, July 08, 2014

I lost a few more pounds. Yay! I'm pretty proud of myself since the long weekend and all the cook outs and parties, but I stuck with it. I haven't had sweets or pop for 8 days now. I have had alcohol probably too much, but I've been extremely active. Volleyball, crossfit and walk/runs with the puppers.

Yesterday was the hardest day for me so far. I was hungover and extremely tired for no sleep since Thursday. Too much partying. A lot of the times, I crave doughy foods like donuts and pizza. I didn't give in though! I just reminded myself that it's only a month of no sweets, and you only feel this way because of lack of hydration. So I drank water and did some unpacking and stuff to distracted myself. I feel pretty good!

I decided that I will be trying my dress on Saturday. To see if it zips up. It's been over a month I believe since I tried it on....I'm so nervous!

Crossfit and volleyball tonight! We're in the finals! Seated #2!!

Day 2 of 31: July "No Sweets" Challenge

Wednesday, July 02, 2014

Going really well! It helps that I keep reminding myself it's only a month! In the grand scheme, not long at all!!

I've already lost a pound. That's awesome! I must have been eating more sweets than I realized, but I was losing slowly, which worked for me since I've always been a yo-yo when it comes to weight. I've been focusing on gaining habits and losing weight slowly. 15 lbs since March is way slower than my history, which was 30lbs in a month type dieting, and then gaining it back after a year (usually starting in winter, less exercise, more parties/cookies/holidays).

I want to learn these small habits so it's more of lifestyle change than about the weight loss. I feel happy in my body unless I'm tired/sick from really bad life choices (NO exercise & just JUNK food eating).
