Rough Night ... But VERY Inspiring

Thursday, August 04, 2011

Well my boyfriend finally landed a job!! Woohoo!

I have lost twenty pounds since my ex and I broke up. My new man is supportive and really tries his best to encourage me.

My friends and I are starting a walking and strength training routine. We are getting ready to run a 5K in December and lose weight in general.

My boyfriend has a wedding he is in, in about 2 weeks. I want to lose more weight and tone up some more before. I just can't wait for this weight to be finally gone. It seems like forever since I have been this small. It feels great but ready to continue the journey to my goal!

Carbs and sweets have been my weakness this week since Mother Nature came a knockin! LOL. But I have also noticed I am drinking more energy drinks which is probably slowing down my weight loss. I need to get back in the groove of drinking 64 ounces of water a day. It feels so good to know that I am in control of my eating and drinking habits. Tonight my friend and I were talking about what we do to make sure we behave. For example, I have to stop and think why am I still hungry, should I really be hungry, am I thirsty or am I just bored? It really makes me stop eating whatever it is that is not healthy. Also, I have not been partaking in any guilty pleasures, like a pint of ice cream or lots of sweets like I used to. My friend also noticed that I am much smaller than when we were in high school and that is amazing!! I am very excited that I can also fit into my jeans I bought two years ago. The next step is to fit into my white jeans my mother bought 9 years ago; I only want to be able to fit into them for a short time and then pass them onto someone else.

December will be here before you know it! Got to create a healthy lifestyle and what better way to do it than with the most amazing people in my life?!

Guess it is that time. Now that I have rambled on enough, I am getting tired.

Hope all my fellow Sparkers sleep well and enjoy your day tomorrow!
