Not for the gym because I LOVE to workout....I am a Zumba instructor and teach or take at least 6 classes a week as well as a Body Fusion (interval training) class once a week just to switch things up. BUT my diet has been crap......I love wine and with wine comes dumb food choices and too many calories. BUT this week is a new week and I have done great so far. Sticking to 1200-1800 calories a day of high protein low fat foods. Getting plenty of water (w... Tue, 13 May 2014 12:40:15 EST Gaining weight? http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5136234 SERIOUSLY?? Ok, so I started Zumba last Monday I did four days last week for an hour a piece so that was four hours last week and I've gone every day this week as well so that'll be 5 hours this week.....and I'm actually GAINING. What the crap? Ugh, so aggravated! I'm not eating more so I don't know. It sucks to work this hard and not have any results Thu, 15 Nov 2012 10:41:09 EST Little Black dress challenge..... http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5112796 So me and my BFF (of 19 years) are about the same with always having to deal with our weight. Her husband was recently stationed in OK so we don't see each other but we are planning New Years together. SO we made a "Little Black Dress Challenge" for ourselves. If there is one thing we both are it's competitive. SOOOOO 1 day down 67 to go. I'm gonna make 2013 a skinny year! Bring the challenge on!!! <BR> <BR> Thu, 25 Oct 2012 18:34:26 EST If only.... http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5086605 If only Margaritas had 0 calories. Of course when you are pregnant you can't have a drink....as soon as you have the baby you want to lose the weight but you just went close to a year without being able to enjoy a cocktail....ah, just venting!! Thu, 4 Oct 2012 12:56:50 EST Jogging Stroller http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5082059 I ordered my double jogging stroller the other day!! SO ready to get out and about with the girls. Still gonna do P90X but with some running on the side just to get some extra cardio in there. Mon, 1 Oct 2012 11:36:27 EST Today... http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5067699 Alright, so I am down a total of 20 lbs since baby (yeah, my weight has fluctuated majorly) and I am SO ready to get the rest off. As soon as the girls go down for a nap I am going to try and get some p90x in. Eating good and feeling good just gotta keep my eye on the goal!! <img src="http://photos-ak.sparkpeople.com/nw/3/5/l352342194.jpg"> Thu, 20 Sep 2012 11:12:22 EST Not for me..... http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5066097 So cuddos to anyone that can handle the HCG diet with the 500 calorie limit and VERY food specific. But it's just not for me. I was having headaches and just all over different mood. I wasn't hungry because the drops have a hunger suppressant but damn it was hard! But I have lost 8 lbs! So back to good ol' exercising and eating right. Wed, 19 Sep 2012 10:07:05 EST Still working on it.... http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5063012 Ok, so I know it's controversial but I just started the HCG Diet drops. Ok, so the first few days have not been easy but today I feel great. I don't feel hungry at all. And I am eating only clean healthy foods. The portions are no doubt small but I found a girl online called hellojody.com and there are a lot of great recipes on there to make the diet a little easier!! I'll keep you guys updated on what I think of it. SO far so good though. <BR> XOXO Mon, 17 Sep 2012 11:00:07 EST After baby #2! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4895884 Wow this is def a little harder getting back into shape after baby #2...which will be my last pregnancy.

Sat, 20 Mar 2010 19:34:49 EST Kenpo X http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=3011152 Okay so I LOVED Kenpo last night! It got my heart working and I felt like I was burning some calories! I have to get a bodybugg so I kn0w exactly how many I burnt. Does anyone know what the average calories burnt in Kenpo are? I know it varies. Anyway, LOVING some Kenpo! Wed, 17 Mar 2010 12:49:11 EST Yoga.....P90X http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=3002296 Yea....Yoga is not not for sissys! I always thought that yoga was relaxing and easy. UM...NO....I was sweating!! This P90X is madness!!! hahah!! I just wonder if everyone could do the whole thing with every workout when you first started? Or did it take you time to work up to that? Mon, 15 Mar 2010 13:37:40 EST Plyometrics http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=2990510 OMG....really....I don't think my legs have ever hurt sooo bad! I felt like a complete WEENIE trying to do all of those squats....mary katherines......lunges....AHHHH.....I am in bad shape apparently!

I mean, elevated pushups?? COME ON...I am in shape but I can't even do one of those! WOW....Haven't felt like such a wimp in a while! Am I the only one? Does it get better? Is there something I am doing wrong?? AHHH!!!

I know that I have been MIA this last month or two but I have a semi-good excuse. I'm Pregnant! 3 months and one week. SO needless to say things have been kindof off track. This was not a planned pregnancy so I was pretty upset before having just lost 73lbs and worrying that I will gain it all back but I have decided if I can just eat healthy (at least as much as I can....the cravings and food adversions are kindof intense and my sciatic nerve hurts SO bad after... Sat, 18 Apr 2009 10:39:20 EST MIA..... http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=1624061 Alright....I've been a little off the wagon for the last week....week and a half.

Just because you could always fit in a 30 min workout, and it said that you can burn like 500 cals in that 30min. SO I was just wondering if anyone goes to Curves and what your thoughts on the place are?? Thanks for any feedback!! <BR> <BR> Loves!

Wed, 13 Aug 2008 14:19:57 EST Women's World Magazine! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=1375344 So I have some pretty exciting news! I was contacted a couple of days ago by our very own spark head of PR Grant Miller about possibly doing the cover for Women's World Magazine and of course I was super excited and said that I would love to be considered for it! So later that day he wrote me and said that he had spoke with one of the editors of the mag and that they were interested and I had made it to the final round that I just needed to take a few pics for them. So the next day I took som...

It hasn't came in yet but as soon as it does I plan to work my ass off!! SO.....what I need from you guys is to tell me a little about it. (That's sad that I ordered it without hearing some success stories first) but I would like to know how it worked for you? Or how it didn't!

My weight is constantly on my mind so it's not lack of caring I just don't have that little push that I need SO bad. I am only 26 days away from my wedding and honeymoon and I wanted to be on the beach in my new bikini but not if I look like this! AHH! I kn...

I know that I don't look as good as what I want to look and I know that I will not give up until I get to that point but how many times am I going to be told that I am getting too small? I was talking to my Mom last night and she was just like, "You are going to have to stop sometime. You need to understand that you are perfect where you are right now and if you lose too much more you are going to start looking sick" And I am like... Mon, 3 Mar 2008 12:05:44 EST Pretty Excited! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=1011635 So I am getting pretty excited about this calorie cycling thing! I was stuck at 158 the scale was NOT MOVING at all and now it keeps dropping and dropping.....I know that your weight fluctuates and all of that but this morning I weighed myself and it said 155...it's never been down that far before so I was SUPER excited! YAY!! Finally starting to see a change again! I think that running every morning has a lot to do with it also....I have made it a daily routine to get up early in the morning... Fri, 15 Feb 2008 13:31:40 EST Fresh Start! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=987827 I have decided that this month is going to be a great one! I am going to buckle down and really lose this last 18 pounds! I know I can do it I just have to get refocused! I only lost 2 pounds last month! That is TERRIBLE! And I only have 4 more months until my wedding....that means that my body has to look great for my Honeymoon!!

I mean, I am SO scared that I will fall back into my old habits! AHHH! It's driving me nuts! I have come so far and worked so hard to lose my drive like I have! I think a lot of it has to do with so many comments.......I know it sounds stupid but I ha...

I think I may go down to 140. My family tells me that I should not get any smaller than I am now and I think they are crazy, one of my main goals is to be able to wear a bikini this summer......and as of right now I would'nt be caught dead in a bikini!!! My stomach is still too big and my legs look a mess! Has anyone else had ppl telling you that you should stop losing when you know that you still have wei... Thu, 17 Jan 2008 20:13:40 EST Big Ears? http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=852810 Haha! Who ever thought I had big ears? lol! Ok so I had my hair in a pony the other day and my brother took a picture of me and when I looked at the pic I was like OMG look at my ears!! I look like dumbo! My Mom and my bro started laughing cause apparantly they agreed? My bro said I looked more like a mouse then dumbo.....which I didn't think was very funny! lol! So that's what I get.....I have a smaller face, so now I have bigger ears! What the hell!? THEN I was at a meeting (for my new job,... Thu, 6 Dec 2007 16:43:21 EST Healthy BMI!!!! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=831293 So I checked my BMI today and i am now officially at a healthy BMI! Yay!! I started at a BMI of 32.9 which is Obese to a now "healthy" 24.5 and when I am done I should be at 22.2! Unless I decide to lose a little more, but if I get under 135 I will be considerd "under weight" which is something I have NEVER been! lol! Anyway, I just thought I would share my excitement!! Sun, 18 Nov 2007 12:03:01 EST 166? http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=828501 Ok so this morning (and last night) I weighed in at 166!! But my normal weigh in day was on Sunday but that was the very first day of my period so I didn't lose any. SO I am gonna cheat and change my ticker!!! lol! If it goes up on Sunday I will fix it. (but hopefully it won't do that!) <BR> <BR> <BR> Just needed to confess!! haha!! <BR> <BR> <BR> UPDATE....I stayed at 166!! Yay! Thu, 15 Nov 2007 15:08:40 EST Not what I expected! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=822882 Whenever I started this new lifestyle of mine I thought 150 was just going to look great on me! Now that I am at 168 I am starting to question that. My body does not look anything like I thought it would at 168, I mean I still have big legs, big lower stomach and I have cellulite on my inner thighs! I would not be caught dead in a bathing suit! And I am 18 lbs away from my goal! Some of the girls and I at work yesterday was talking at lunch and one of them said, "how much more weight are you ... Sun, 11 Nov 2007 14:57:14 EST 18 lbs to go!! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=813747 So I am pretty excited that I only have 18 lbs and I will be at my goal!! That is something that seemed impossible a few months ago. So that means that I have actually lost 55 lbs....that is like a chubby 1st grader! lol! But if it wasn't for the ppl on here there is absolutely no crappin way that I could have done this by myself! So I just wanted to say thank you to everyone on here for inspiring me and helping me through all of this! Sun, 4 Nov 2007 15:36:54 EST Some serious cravings!! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=812706 OM Lord do I have some serious cravings today! I feel like I could eat anything and everything in site! We had a baby shower today at work and there is this big fat cookie cake that is just screaming my name......damn you cookie cake!!! lol! I don't know what is wrong with me today, I never really get like this....usually I am just fine with not eating that kind of stuff! I am also an emotional reck...I have been crying about EVERYTHING...I mean EVERYTHING!!! I think that I Am going through ...

I was at the mexican restuarant that we go to every week and the waitress checked my ID, most of the servers there know us but she was new so I showed her and she said.....sorry mam but it is very obvious that the girl in this picture is not you......and I was like uh yeah it is......and she argued back and forth with me until finally she said, clearly the girl in this picture is not you and I will not be able to serve you! I was like....you have got to be kidding me!... Wed, 24 Oct 2007 20:14:30 EST Seeing old friends..... http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=785972 Ok so I saw a friend last night that I haven't seen in over a year and it was so funny to see the expression on his face....he was like HOLY COW what happened to you? lol! It made me feel good because sometimes I forget how much I have actually lost. And also it makes me feel like keeping it up because I don't want to let anyone....including myself down! It just makes you wonder....damn....was I really that big?! And I even asked, and they were like.....u really never looked that big it's jus... Sun, 14 Oct 2007 11:40:53 EST Errr! :( http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=773298 I am in such a awkward mood today.....I feel like the biggest fattest cow in the whole world! And this isn't the first day that I have felt this way....it has been like a week now and I just can't shake it. My damn ticker is stuck! I can't get below 175.......I can sure as hell get back up to 176 but there is no way that thing is going down! I feel like I am just loosing control of this "diet" and I know that if for some reason I did that I would never ever forgive myself. I can't do anything...

We walked the WHOLE time, I walked for about 4 hrs total yesterday if I had to guess how many miles I would say about 6 or 7! Which is good. Then when we went to the stadium we had to walk up 15 flights of stairs (yeah, I counted) so today my legs feel like they may fall off! But just like the last ... Sun, 16 Sep 2007 12:00:16 EST Not so bad! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=730905 So the bama game..... I didn't do near as bad as what I thought I would....and I was really quite proud of myself! I did eat but I didn't go over my calories....believe me...with all the food there it could have been a really bad diet day! lol! But I just felt so much better than I did last year at the games....it is so crappin hot in Bama and we were tailgaiting ALL day from like 8 in the morning till the game was over at 10pm and I just remember last year when we did that I was just SO tire... Tue, 4 Sep 2007 18:35:42 EST So much food! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=725830 I am going to Alabama's first game of the season tomorrow and we tailgate all day....which of course includes TUNS of food and even more alcohol! I know that I am going to be tempted....the food will be my worst temptation because my bf's mom and dad always cook things like shrimp poe-boys (not sure how to spell that!) and things like that.....ERRR!!! I know that I will drink a little but I am worried about all the food being there....and I don't want to mess everything up! There is so much w... Fri, 31 Aug 2007 15:38:36 EST
