Here I am!

Tuesday, June 04, 2013

So, it's been a crazy past few weeks. There are three big things right now:
1. My husband's job is transferring, so we are moving to the DFW area on FRIDAY. They gave him 2 weeks to get over there, and we wanted to go together, so we've been going crazy trying to find a new place to rent and get out of our old one. I think we're going to make it! Our new apartment is awesome and has a recently updated fitness center with kickboxing classes and they're trying to get Zumba there as well. It's also by a park and rec center! yay! Oh, and pools!

2. Speaking of Zumba... I AM AN OFFICIAL ZUMBA INSTRUCTOR!! chararollins.zumba.com/ My training was May 26 and it was awesome and very, very tiring. So I said the apartment complex is looking for someone to teach Zumba...well... it might be me!! I'm nervous and excited at the same time!

3. I finished phase 1 of NRoLW!! That was last week, and I'm taking this week "off." And by that, I mean lifting boxes and furniture instead. :) I haven't gotten around to taking after pics yet, but I'm not sure how they'll turn out because eating healthy has not been something I've been doing the last couple weeks. So we'll see. :) But I can't wait to start phase 2 next week in my new fitness center!

So that's all I've got for now. I'm not sure when I'll be back on regularly, but it will be someday soon!!

Here's to self control.

Monday, May 13, 2013



This really got to me. I really struggle with my eating habits. I'll do good for a while, then I'll do bad, then usually I just give up. This time around, I haven't given up, which is good, but I haven't been using my self control as I should be. And I'm getting frustrated with myself for interfering with my progress.

I saw this one day, and I stopped and thought about why I started. Because I WANT that end goal. I WANT to wear medium shirts. I WANT to get rid of this spare tire. I WANT to see myself as normal, not fat. So why am I not using my self control and allowing myself to eat whatever junk I want??

emoticon
So let's raise a glass to self control. I'm going to use it this week. I'm going to focus on putting healthy food into my body instead of just focusing on what my taste buds want (what do they know, anyway?) I'm going make sure I'm getting my 5 freggies each day, all my protein, and lots of water. I'm going to stop making excuses and start eating in a way that gets me the health I want!

It's just like I tell my little students... you can tell your body what to do! You can make it be still, even if it's not fun. Well... I am in charge of me! I can make my body eat better, even if it's not fun. And just like my students, I'll see that it IS more fun in the long run when I'm getting the results I want. :)

Double chin and armpit fat slimmer

Tuesday, May 07, 2013

Yeah, an old high school friend of mine put that on Pinterest today. Sure, I'd LOVE to do a workout just for my double chin and armpits!!! Sounds like a winner!! Unfortunately, the link doesn't work, so I can't make fun of it more thoroughly.

This kind of stuff just makes me sad. That and food labels that are so misleading. People who don't educate themselves just don't have a chance! I think that business and the bottom line have a lot to do with the "obesity epidemic" or whatever it is... I know it's ultimately down to us to treat our bodies responsibly, but face it, (especially where I live) not everyone has the intelligence to do that. It is completely irresponsible for any food establishment to serve one entree with over 1000 calories in it. Make it smaller. And if all the food places did that, it would be less easy for people to consume so many calories without paying attention. But they won't, because bigger is better and draws in the customers. And the chemicals keep them coming. And then there are the people who kind of try and just rely on "healthy" marketing, when actually a lot of those products are full of crap and chemicals instead of real nutrients.

But at least if you are working our your chin and armpits, you're probably moving a little, and I guess that IS better than just passing out on the couch.

  You have to do cardio, It helps you to lose whole body weight and try to eat fruits and juice instead of junk food or fatty food, For a double chin you have to do double chin exercise daily it help's you to target that double chin and neckline fat by toning the surrounding muscles and forcing localized fat burning, The 58 facial muscles can quickly burn off your double chin. for more information visit: http://removedoublechin.net/

    I totally agree. I think it's completely wrong that people need to educate themselves in order safely navigate the minefield that is the American food industry. Kind of like going to a doctor - you expect them to have the answers because they are the expert and inherently you should be able to trust them. It's a shame that it's so difficult to go to a restaurant and just have a meal that's healthy and nourishing. You have to educate yourself first. If you're not paying attention, chances are pretty good that you're going to eat way more than any person should eat in one sitting. And people do it all the time.

    The problem is that people WANT those 1,000 calorie entrees, and then a quick fix pill to remove the weight from what they perceive as their "problem areas." Doesn't work that way, and that lifestyle would still be mega-unhealthy even if they did have slim chins and armpits!

Working my Butt ON

Tuesday, May 07, 2013

So... I guess I've always had pretty flat hindquarters... in fact, the only note that I ever took up from a student when I taught jr high said...something like "she has a pretty face, but when she turns round it's like pancake bootie." I have to admit that I was NOT offended. I still have it somewhere, by the way. Sadly, that was in the old ages before facebook and high res camera phones, so I can't find it and post it.

But anyway... all this weight lifting. It may finally give me a non pancake bootie. Baby got back and all. lol.

I'm noticing my new muscles coming in!! I'm excited like the kids at school are when their permanent teeth come in! And I went to the dr today to get a steroid shot (for allergies, not muscles) and my weight was 196, fully clothed, so I'm feeling okay about that. It's not a loss, but not a real gain either, so now I just need to get better at eating. :)

And here's a random picture of me today when I was trying to get my hair to dry after Zumba. :)

    I can relate. My friend tells me I don't have a butt. I've heard of others commenting on my "squirrel butt" and my "hickernut a_ _". I guess you can say I have a boyish figure.

    I've always had the opposite problem, so much in the backside that there's a gap in my pants at the waist and this only gets worse with working out but I'll take that any day over not being strong!

Here's to having two kittens in a burlap bag for a backside real soon! ;)
