CRAZY SHIZ RIGHT?! That is PROOF of what physical activity can do for your body! I have not really cut out anything food wise. Since I am further along on my road to healthy awaking now, my tendency to not fill my plate, eat the “good stuff” first and to stop when I feel full have taken over like second nature. It feels great! <BR> <BR> I read thro... Mon, 20 May 2013 12:40:39 EST oh so sore! I have been trying to skate as much as possible....but it's hard to find good places. I have started carrying a broom in my car so if i do find a good flat spot i can sweep it clean before i start to roll.....Lord knows skates and rocks, branches, dirt...etc. DON'T MIX! LOL!! <BR> <BR> Since I have been skating more I have neglected my Insanity work outs. Last night was my first one in like 4 or 5 days....simply because I AM SORE AS HELL!!!! LOL! I'm trying to get my legs use to the extra we... Thu, 10 Jan 2013 13:02:36 EST The fat is gunna FLY I don't know why i go through moments of not wanting to blog. It doesn't make much since to me; I mean bloging really helps me stay on track and focus on the positive things that I'm doing. So yeah.....anyway. <em>24</em> <BR> <BR> Everything is still good! I am working out and eating right, feeling good and looking better every day! It's FANTASTIC!!! <em>9</em> <BR> <BR> I started roller derby "Fresh Meat" training on Saturday and HOLY CRAP is that an arss kicker!!! <em>198</em>... Mon, 7 Jan 2013 19:56:03 EST The proof is in the pictures! 1= 197 lbs 10/2012 ---#2= 163 lbs 12/23/12 ( down 34 pounds) <BR> <BR> <img src=""> <BR> <BR> <BR> Hey now where near perfect but a whole lot better then where i started if you ask me!!! I can't remember when I have felt this good about myself. SERIOUSLY!! I have never felt as sexy, confident, empowered, and PROUD as I do right now (hell i even took a pic in my chones! lol)....sitting here typing this!! IT'S AN AMAZING FEELING.....that... Mon, 24 Dec 2012 14:46:28 EST YOGA PANTS! Today is/will/would be Insanity day 22.... <BR> Didn't workout this morning, the husband needed a break (snicker... :D). I like doing my workouts in the morning, but when he is home....and parked in the garage (my gym! lol) it makes it rough. So unless he leaves the house by 5:00am I can't work out until i get home from work (around 6 pm) and that just straight out SUCKS!!! I mean I have so much to do when i get home......wife and mother come first ya know? So yeah he's not going to want to w... Fri, 14 Dec 2012 13:54:53 EST NICE ARSE! :D I don’t know how I always get my days wrong but I do! LOL! I’m not sure if I’m on day 14 or 15 of Insanity but I don’t really care….cuz I feel GREAT!! Did the second fit test today and I could truly see and feel a difference! Even if I my numbers were the same, more, or less I know I did them all completely and correctly this time around. A couple of weeks ago, doing the 1st fit test about KILLED ME! I ½ assed it and complained the whole time! I was so out of breath that I about hyperventilat... Fri, 7 Dec 2012 13:49:04 EST Great Morning! Insanity D13 <BR> <BR> Great day so far! Got up early enjoyed my workout (did D12 when I got home FYI)….well as much as you can getting your arse handed to you! Hahaha!!! Really though, the “KEEP GOING” speed of Insanity is inspiring! Knowing that you are getting stronger and are able to keep up is an ego boost for sure!! I can’t wait (well actually I can! LOL!) for the next fit test…….i think it’s like tomorrow or Saturday!!! I’m expecting my numbers to be a lot higher….we shall see!! WOOHO... Thu, 6 Dec 2012 14:10:56 EST EAT TO LIVE NOT live to eat! Ok so I did not do my work out this morning, but I WILL DO IT WHEN I GET HOME…..I SWEAR!! I’m not quitting……I REFUSE! It is just so much easier to get up so damn early and get into it when there is someone doing it with you! This morning the husband would have had to gotten up at 3 am to fit a hour long work out in this morning and be to work no later than 5. He woke me up at 4:30 so I could workout……but after he left I fell back to sleep on the couch! LOL!! If I would have gotten up and put ... Wed, 5 Dec 2012 14:23:30 EST Day 11 I-D11 <BR> 12/4/12 <BR> 175 lbs <BR> <BR> I’m not really loosing pounds but I don’t give a crap! Giving what people say who look at me I AM! LOL! And my clothes agree with them, and I’ve been looking pretty sassy pictures ….soooo…… …..SCREW YOU SCALE …..MAJORITY RULES!!! LOL! <BR> <BR> Today was not such a great workout morning…..the husband was super tired and resistant, then it being the “cardo recovery”, and pretty slow aggravated an already tired and grumpy bear. It would have been bett... Tue, 4 Dec 2012 14:47:17 EST ROLLER DERBY!!!! I’M JOINING ROLLER DERBY!!!!! YAY!!!!! I’m sooo excited!!! I have always loved to skate and derby has always interested me, but I never tried (being too fat was always my excuse). Not anymore…….I’m turning in my registration paper work and $ THIS WEEK!!! Now I need a roller derby name!! CAN YOU HELP ME OUT PLEASE…..well if anyone is reading this at least! LOL!! Not something with my name in it….and it has to be kinda TOUGH! They said to have a healthy list of um to choose from because it’s a ... Mon, 3 Dec 2012 15:37:31 EST INSANITY!!!!! OH YEAH..... 11/29/12 <BR> Insanity- D6 <BR> 176 lbs. <BR> <BR> Well ok, I am sore as all hell!! But I really love it!! The Insanity work out is AMAZING!! It’s non-stop cardio, with 30 second breaks in between sets. It’s all about doing what you can and NOT GIVING UP! I’m on day 6 and even as sore as I am I can tell I’m doing better than day 1……my body is starting to show change and I’m feeling less jiggly……talk about motivation!!!! IT’S AMAZING what WORKING at it does…….NO MORE EXCUSES FOR ME!! YAAHOO!!... Thu, 29 Nov 2012 17:43:54 EST AT IT AGAIN.... What’s the saying........TRY TRY AGAIN!!! I'm here, AGAIN after a fat birthday, and once again I HATE IT! All I can do is keep on trying. I'm running out of time tho.....I will be 40 in three years and not having a handle on my weight as well as my life habits is dangerous! Being 5' tall this weight is even more dangerous for me.....can you believe it.....186 and barley 5' tall! It's not a pretty site let me tell you. <BR> <BR> But I'm going to change that.....I will.....I believe in me! <BR... Mon, 20 Aug 2012 13:26:00 EST ApOcAlYpSe BoDY........ Close your eyes and think back to one of those "end of the world" type movies you have seen.....I always picture "Mad Max" <BR> <img src=""> <BR> (DD likes “Water World” better! LOL!). <BR> <BR> What body condition are these people in? The weak ones are too frail or too fat. Never mind the reason for the defect; either one.....a death sentence. The smart people run the show, regardless of body condition; (typically they have hired minio... Thu, 5 Jan 2012 12:23:34 EST SEXY BEAST!

Went to Zumba last night! LOVED IT as usual! But oh boy am i ever out of shape, and the moves wernt as easy as i remember! Haha! Last nights class had a lot of booty shaking and hip circles.....towards the end of the class it caught up with me! Remember I separated my innercostal muscle from my rib cage a couple of weeks ago? I have been feeling great, but holy crap all that bump and grindage really jacked me up! I'm still hurting this morning, worse then last night. It is getting worse the m...

Excuse after excuse......I'm sore, it's too cold, it's too late WHATEVER!!!! It's like I want to be fat for the rest of my life!! <BR> <BR> I'm doing well with eating most of the time.....i can see my face has lost some plumpness but still!!! Food alone will not get me to where i want to be!! I KNOW THIS, yet here i sit on my a** complaining about myself! <BR> <BR> I'm going to a Zumba c... Thu, 15 Dec 2011 12:06:52 EST I SAID NO!!!!

YAY ME!!! <BR> <BR> Saturday I got all of my chores done, had no kid at home and the husband went out with friends. I sat here with my pup and wondered what to do.

I'vereally been getting my emotions under control. I have been stooping myself and thinking before i eat, even eating smaller portions. I am trying to be more active and it feels good! <BR> <BR> Well it FELT GOOD!!! <em>24</em> <BR> <BR> Yesterday I woke up feeling stiff; shrugging it off I continued getting dressed, rushing around to make it out of the house on time!

SERIOUSLY......I have completely shut off any idea of loosing weight! I have eaten myself into some kind of cocoon o... Thu, 1 Dec 2011 19:26:31 EST sinful fruit.... Started my morning by getting up just a tad early, but was able to straighten up and get out of the house without rushing. So it's not my 5:00 am walking the dog "target" but at least I'm on the board! Haha!

Sun, 11 Sep 2011 02:34:08 EST The nothing..... Does anyone remember that movie? "The Never-ending Story"? Amazing movie.....with a great message! It's all about not giving up and making your dreams a reality. <BR> <BR> Waiting for the nothing is the only way i can think to describe the funk I've been in lately. Really is like i gave up, sat down (like the rock brighter) and was just kinda waiting for all the bad things to settle at my feet. Bad as in finances, housework, weight, marriage, my job, the kid....all of it. I THREW IN THE TOW...

She wants to sleep in later so I let her assuming she will shower faster in appreciation but no. A tired kid in a warm shower = sloth! Haha! What erks me is that we have had this "please hurry so mom doesn’t go all sideways on your behind" discussion A MILLION TIMES since she started showering alone. Yet morning after morn...

That feeling is spread evenly and thick over all avenues in my life right now. <BR> <BR> I know that cloud of disappointment in myself, generates from me…..I swear I do; but I need some relief before I can get back up on that horse and ride bareback in the surf once more. Not quitting just need to fin... Tue, 6 Sep 2011 19:43:13 EST how annoying! This is how my low carb journey began. I wrote it for my "sucess story" atricle the weight loss group i was/am involved in did on me. I lost 60 pounds in about 7 months. That was for my wedding 10/11/09......just about 2 years later and I'm in exactally the same spot!

Why? Why does this cycle of gaining weight make me go straight for what is causing the problem? I know I need to exercise and stop eating crap but I don't....WHY? <BR> <BR> I pride myself on being a strong outspoken person who will not be pushed aside. Yet I sit here day by day allowing my bad habits to control every move I ma... Wed, 7 Apr 2010 13:18:52 EST
