Amazing Adventures Down to 160 :o)

Thursday, August 12, 2010

So I haven't updated my blog in quite some time. Allot has gone on :o) I'm now down to 160 pounds Yeah!!!! 150's I will see you next weigh-in :o) We went on a 12 day trip driving from AZ to OH. I visited each of my sisters that live in Ohio for a day , then we went to the Cleveland Breast Cancer 3 day to crew the event. Most of the crew was down right rude with the team we were on , but the true reason we were there was the walkers, and we totally made it about them. We met some amazing people and were able to help hundreds. We also got to see our 3 day family, the ones we crew with in Phoenix, 3 of them walked and 1 of them crewed on a different crew. They are all amazing and I wished we all lived closer. We live in CA, AZ, CO, and IA but are best of friends. We call it our chosen family, not that we don't love people in our birth familys ;o) We also got to meet up with Ali Vincent from Biggest loser in Columbus for a boot camp workout :o)

The biggest challenge being on the road and eating out for 12 days is the food for me. I made a deal with hubby that if I didn't gain weight on the trip that I could get $100 from the budget to get my hair cut and highlighted at the salon with my favorite hairdresser (it's been 4 years since I've seen him) Sooooooooo I managed to keep my weight the exact same which is totally huge for me !!!!! I was so excited!!!! Yeah I had made a deal with myself that once I went under 160 that I was going to get my hair done, so the next weigh-in I should be making my appointment, soooo close

The kids are doing good my step daughter starts school next week and my two started back on July 19th, poor things barely got out June 18th. They are doing so well this year with a new school and district :o) Almost 4 weeks in and my son hasn't gotten into trouble once, I'm so proud of how they are doing. My son joined band and my daughter joined drama.

I have been working out regularly , resting atleast one day a week, inspiring others, eating well, and just doing amazing. I'm making the best of some bad things at work and it's making things sooo much better just remember to love life

Can't wait for the wellness cruise I will be going on with my mom in October :o) I'm getting really excited about it!!! There is also some cool stuff coming up in September that I will blog about maybe when I get more details :o) Also in September I'm doing a sprint triathlon for my Birthday, so exciting!!!!!!!

That's it for now, hope everyone is doing well and making healthy choices, weighloss is just a benefit to living healthy. We can all have a happier and healthier life one choice at a time!!!!

    WOW! I would never be able to maintain while traveling. Even if I'm working out and trying to eat right, I ALWAYS come back with at least 1-2 pounds of water weight. WTG!!!
