This is what I overheard a friend/colleague of mine say about her recent and very, very fast weight loss. I guess someone was asking about a) how she did it and b) how she did it so quickly. It seemed like a 15-20 lb loss in about a month but I'm really not sure. But, yeah, that's what she said. 'When I eat carbs, they go straight to my ass so no more carbs for me. I keep them completely out of my diet.' Does anyone else think this is just a bit extreme? Hello (almost)…Continue
No blog post yesterday because I had no wifi and it was a crazy day for me.
...and by crazy I mean I was laying out by the pool and catching up on Duck Dynasty..guilty as charged.
I did however, start livefit with some of the other pretty ladies on here! It felt amazing being back at the gym, getting my butch on in the dreaded weight section. Ah I love it! Right next to a bunch of meatheads, lifting weights, jammin to 1D, with the best of them. It was fab. I…Continue
Every since I discovered that I needed to be eating more, I have been wearing a heart rate monitor when I workout to track calories burned. My strategy has been to track my activity points and make sure to eat those additional points throughout the week. It seems to be working well, but I have noticed recently that my cheapy heart rate monitor loses connection quite frequently throughout the workout, which obviously is going to affect my calories burned. In looking online, it seems to be a…Continue
I figured I’m probably not supposed to be posting to BTL during work hours, so I’m typing this out in Microsoft Word first. HA! Normally I wouldn’t do this, but with the end of the year and very little work to be done, I figured it’s better than staring at the wall.
Today is food prep day for Live Fit! I went and purchased food and supplements last night. I am buying into the WHOLE program. I figure, might as well do it by the book first and then see if I need to tweak it. Like I…
I awoke today feeling the soreness that I had expected. It's in my shoulders, chest, triceps and abs (I felt my abs working during the push-ups). I'm opposite from so many, I'm awesome with the food, from the shopping, to the prep, the cooking and eating on time-I'm a rock star! BUT the exercise is really tough for me!
We also ran to a couple stores yesterday to stock the fridge & freezer. We got frozen fish at BJ's- sea bass, tilapia, cod & mahi mahi. I also got 2 big…Continue
You probably already guessed that 17 is the number of school days left in the year. My colleague tried to argue with me today that it was better to add in the weekend days also because it's more realistic. Um....what? Who would even think that that makes any sense...like...at...all....
It was a good day today overall and that's about it. I thought excessively all day about wanting to wake up every morning and not have regret from the day before for overeating or drinking or whatever.…Continue
I'm taking a class on the website Craftsy on fitting clothes for plus sized women. In the second lesson, it was recommended that we have a dressmaker's dummy or dress form to help with the fitting. We had a couple of options, a messy one that involved craft tape, water, a tight-fitting tee shirt and a willing friend, or take our existing double and pad it. I picked Option #2, because I have a dress form. No, it doesn't fit me anymore, but I figured with padding it would.
I started by…Continue
