Hip hip, I lost some pounds, hooray!!!

Stepped on the scale today and it read 170.2!!!! Sooooo happy! Only 10 months ago I was 266 pounds. That's a 96 pound loss in 10 months!!! I have 4 more pounds to lose to hit my 100 pounds gone which is my first super major goal and I'm hoping to hit that in a week or 2. Then I will decide wether I wanna lose an additional 20 or 30 pounds. I'm pretty happy with the way my body looks now. I'm a size 10 in regular sizes and between a 9 and 11 in junior sizes. I'm half mexican and have a very… Continue

I love Fridays!

I am so glad it's Friday. Even with the short week it seemed to go on forever at work. I've been feeling pretty good about myself. Doing my Power 90 and eating good (80%). Tomorrow is weigh in and I really want to see a loss. Even small ones but I want them consistently! I want to lose 10 pounds by August 1st. Since tomorrow is June first that gives me 2 months. 5 a month is doable. I've always been a slow loser. A pound a week was a lot for me. 10…

LiveFIt Day 10

Today I had a sore lat on the right side :(  At work today I had to assist the doctor & it wasn't easy, every time I moved my right arm it hurt & my range of motion was limited (she didn't notice).  I have been stretching it gently several times today & it seems to be easing up a bit.  I'm so glad that today was legs!  I also broke out a book that I haven't looked at in a while, The Eat Clean Diet Recharged, by Tosca Reno, I want to get some more meal ideas, as I don't want to…

The Pictures

I finally got the family pictures back from the photographer. Too cute. I just love how she captured my little guys personality (I can totally tell he was dancing in some of the pictures--his current favorite thing to do). I was also pleased with several of the family pictures (especially when compared the 6 month pics). So, without further adieu...…

Then still day light & warmth so I weeded all those little trees growing from tree roots. Enjoyed the evening with family watching Tim Hawkins video (supper was popcorn & WW snack…

New hours- new motivation

I got to experience the enjoyment of my new work hours. I am finally getting to work a 40 hr week rather than a 55 hr week. I got to wake up and enjoy a walk/run in the cool crisp air watching the sun rise and still have time to shower and eat before one first child arrived. I still have a few weeks before these hrs become permanant but I must say I am looking forward to it. I also looked into buying a child seat for my bike so when I have my infant early I can take her with me and let her… Continue

What? It's almost JUNE!!

Holy moly. I can not believe that it is almost June. I've got to kick it up a notch. I want to see a loss each week. I've fallen off track but I've really done much better lately. Perfect? Hell no, but 80% of the time I have been. I want to feel good both physically and mentally. Getting healthy really does involve both. Since I have the exercise thing down, it is the eating that really needs work. But I've been listening to the body and it talks.…

WW points earned

LiveFit Day 9

This am I had to take my daughter to the doctor 45 minutes away, right near my work actually, then come all the way back to drop her at school, then go home, work out, shower, eat lunch & go to work! 

Today's workout went really well!  I'm feeling a little stronger each day!  We got all the grocery shopping done yesterday.  The fridge is again bursting with fresh foods.  We have been talking about replacing the fridge with a bigger one because after shopping you have to move…

Life is More Than a Bag of Cookies

I gotta tell ya, I feel so amazing this morning. And it's not just cause of my super cute outfit either. Ain't it funny how one takes a long time to notice and be honest with the fact that they have gained weight yet when they're losing its like "heyyy look over here I'm killin em out there"? Lol well guess what, look over here.

Now I know I haven't posted any pictures of what I looked like before dropping pounds other than my super chic half body profile picture, but I kind of want… Continue

Medifast :)))

ok so here goes. Ive been eating well and working my butt off with p90x but havent lost a pound but have lost a few inches not much though. So I used to do the Medifast eating plan and had some success with it. I lost about 30 pounds on the diet. So today Im starting it back up. First know the medifast plan does work if you stick to it very strictly. I know that from experience. But secondly know the food isnt great or even close to it and its very expensive in my opinion. Which money is…

Freedom is so inspiring

I feel so free to be and to take things at the pace that I choose. I also feel so free to make my business ideas a reality. If you have ever felt like someone is always fighting you then you probably know how I feel. But right now with these people leaving my life I feel like I have that inspiration and freedom again. I went to the dr and am proud to say all my blood work is good. It she is a little concerned with my stalled weight loss so suggested I start focusing on that again but in a none… Continue

FB Status Quote

Not sure if any of you are familiar with Joyce Meyer - she is a Woman's Evangelist out of St. Louis.  Anyway I follow her on face book and here is her status for the day.  It spoke to me as I am getting back on track...

"Commit to stop making excuses. When we make excuses, we lie to ourselves and continue bad habits."

Quick Update

It's been a rough two weeks.  My brother's wife passed away last week unexpectedly.  She was 26, had two young sons (3 and 10 months) and my brother has been devastated.  We all have a long road ahead of us. I'm at my parents' house, where my brother is currently staying, helping out with the kids and being some support for my brother.  I worry about him.

Thus, I haven't worked out in two weeks.  I had to give up my race this last Saturday.  I haven't gotten much sleep and I…
