May 1st Measurements, Menu & Goal Outfits (tons of pictures and links)

Wednesday, May 01, 2013

Today is "D- Day" as my HR manager likes to call it. Today is the official kick off of our "Get Healthy Challenge" at work. I am in 6th place with my steps so far, so I need to start moving my butt! It's been tough with the concussion, I've been down since Sunday. My HR manager is training for a marathon so I know I'm not going to win this one, but it's worth a shot. Tonight is my hunny's first evening of slo pitch, so we're going to head down to Softball Valley and I am going to go for a walk with my puppy before catching one of his games. Here's a pic of my Gullybear if you haven't seen:


So being that it is D-Day, I decided to take my measurements. I am up 2 lbs to 181 lbs because on Monday I gorged out on everything. I ate a grilled cheese sandwich for breakfast, smoothie, two pieces of pizza, Ichiban noodles, pork chop, salad... Think of me like pacman. Nom nom nom. 2,500 calories later and I still wanted more food... YIKES! Thank goodness I was back to my normal self yesterday. Even though I feel absolutely disgusted with these measurements, I have to post them so I can at least see the progress down the road:
Weight - 181 (really 179)
R.Arm - 14"
Bust - 38"
Waist - 32"
Abdomen - 42"
Hips - 47"
R. thigh - 27"
R. Calf - 16"

Moving on.

After I had my 2,500 calorie day I felt disgusting. So yesterday I made up some clean, delicious eats. I also planned out my menu for the week and went grocery shopping. Yesterday I had Greek Quinoa Salad for lunch and Chicken burritos for dinner, yum!

Greek Quinoa Salad:

Chicken Burritos topped with homemade salsa and non-fat Greek yogurt (I left out the cheese in the filling. I also left out the rice in the filling. I just used a store bought cooked chicken and shredded it to speed up the cooking time. So I guess I "loosely" followed this recipe):

And I will be making the chicken burritos again, those were fantastic. Might do a spinoff of them and make chicken fajitas, who knows. I love meal planning. I actually use this meal planning sheet and put in my fridge each week from here:

Lastly, I want to post some photos of my goal outfits. When I successfully lose this weight I want to be able to flaunt these items with confidence. First, I found this sports bra I had no idea that I owned. It's a 34C and I pulled it out thinking "wow... this is TINY". It used to fit, and it shall fit again!



Secondly is a bikini I bought from Victoria Secret two years ago and have never got to wear because it's a Medium and lord knows I'm not a medium. I will wear this!



Thirdly is a dress I bought online but have never been able to wear because it has no stretch and my hips are much too wide. It's so cute and I cannot wait to be able to rock it.



My goal is to fit into all of these items by the end of summer when I reach my goal weight! I have had them in my closet for so long, now's the time to wear them!

So here's to the next week being ACTIVE, PLANNED, FOCUSED and POSITIVE!

    I didn't get much past Gullybear because I have NEVER SEEN A CUTER FACE IN MY LIFE.

How's your head, sweetie?!?!?!
