First goal met!!!
So, I met my first short term goal. I've lost 16 pounds so far and I am stoked about that! So, now I get to indulge in a manicure / pedicure and thank god for that, because my toes and hands are in some dire need of TLC.
The past few da... Read more
The old bump and grind.
Today has been good. I usually start my weeks off with a bang, but end up fizzling out over the weekend. I'm actually okay with that though. I figure that the weekends are meant to be enjoyed and if that means my only source of enjoyment is e... Read more
Long way down..
Yesterday was a terrible day. We had a first communion / birthday party to go to and of course, what food choices did we have? Nothing but complete and total junk. Baked Mostaccioli, Fried Chicken, Polish Sausage and Sourkraut, Potato Wedges.... Read more
My Lovely Lady Humps
Blahhhh.. I'm tired today. I've been really good all week, working out every day and eating right. I've been alternating days with Curves and the gym. I like the routine for right now, although I'm starting to get a bit bored with Curves. I don'... Read more
I stepped on the scale this morning and was pleased with the 245 that stared back at me. Not that this is a weight I'm happy with, but it's a goal I'm pleased with at the moment. It makes me feel like I'm actually doing it.. I'm accomplishing ... Read more
You won't find me there.
Is it weird that I don't want to see my friends until I lose this weight? I've been fielding off going out invites since I started this routine and It's because I don't want people to see me until I lose all of it. Yes, I'm aware that most lik... Read more
Total Elliptical of the Heart
So, once again, rough weekend. But I started my week off right by eating good and working out. Not that I was so terrible this weekend, but as I always say, I could have done better (ok, ok, a lot better).
I made some delicious turkey chil... Read more
I need to step it up. This weekend hasn't been the greatest for me foodwise. Yesterday I went a hog wild again. I am going to be super strict this week with my intake and try to keep it under a 1000 calories.
Maybe I need to step it up... Read more
Eating for your blood type??
I found this to be somewhat interesting. I am B+ so I guess if I were following this diet, I'd be somewhat lucky :)
Type A types should basically stick to fruits and vegetables (high carbs / low fat). They have thicker blood than other bl... Read more
Interesting thought to ponder..
I feel like I fell off the wagon today. But the funny part is, I really didn't. I mean, I ate a little worse then what I should have, for sure. El Pollo Loco doesn't have many options when it comes to eating healthy, so I improvised. I had a... Read more
Shake That @$$ For Me...
That Elliptical Machine has become my best friend and worst enemy at the same time. I couldn't wait to get off work and go to the gym today. I used a different machine and I could really tell the difference between the two. The one I used tod... Read more
I think I can, I think I can, I think I can
That has been my mantra for the day. I think I can. I ran 25 minutes on the elliptical machine at the gym today. At 10 minutes I started feeling the burn, at 15, I wanted to stop, at 20, I nearly did stop. But I kept setting a different goal... Read more
I am aware how everything's gonna be fine...
Working out has to be one of the best feelings, mentally and physically. I love how sore I feel the next morning after I push myself to the limits. But what I really love is the sense of accomplishment I feel when I leave. Like, yeah, rock on... Read more
Musings on becoming drop dead gorgeous....
I've been trying to figure out all the things that motivate me today. I think looking at the bikini I fell in love with at The Gap is a big one! LOL! But seriously, I just want to feel good about myself. My self confidence has been on the bac... Read more
So I am minus 9 lbs so far and I feel good about myself. I am really excited about the fact that I am actually sticking to a diet for the first time... in well... ever. I am going to Curves after work today, so I'm looking forward to that. I ... Read more
