Summer Collection Chat and Some Blogging!

Thursday, April 18, 2013

I know it's been awhile since I've blogged but surprisingly I'm usually around spark. I might miss a day or two here and there, or a weekend, but I always try to at least log in.

Anyways, my Summer Collection! Now when I say Summer Collection, I'm talking about my lotion, LOL! I credit my lotion with helping me stay on track a lot of days. If I don't like the collection I have out (they change every season) then it usually starts to bring me down soon after. I got sick of my spring collection so I pulled out the summer one about a week ago. I have A TON of lotion and a collection for each season that I pack away in the closet when they're not in season. Naturally, my summer lotion collection is full of coconut scents and tons of tropical/floral scents. I'm looking forward to summer so much that I literally needed to FEEL summer on my body. Hence the collection and my motivation lately. I can't seem to drop weight (I'm still struggling with the evening time eating) but I've been working out every day except weekends (I literally have to force myself most of the time because my back aches first thing) alternating cardio with circuit training/ST during the week. I also eat well during the day (an egg, egg whites and a protein shake with fruits for breakfast and a healthy choice meal with an apple and some peanut butter for lunch and snacks. Plus teas throughout the day) but I usually come home after work and if there are no leftovers then I'm usually out of luck. But I'm trying! I swear I am, lol!

Anyways, I just wanted to blog and to change up my backgrounds now that it's getting warmer and we're getting closer to Summer. I need some motivation! Memorial Day is next month and that is my goal deadline. I don't think I'll hit my goal since I'm having such a hard time right now but I would like to at least say that I made an effort!

Ok off I go. It's time to eat lunch/dinner since I'm the late night person working tonight. emoticon

    Sounds like you're doing everything right, maybe you need to increase your calories for a few days to the top end of your range.
    I found this worked when I had a plateau Daisy and if you're working out hard your body might be craving those extra calories! Ir worked every time for me LOL

    I used to love coconut scented lotions now I heave at the smell- have no idea why but I do LOL
