Holiday Hump is GONE!

Ok y’all so it’s been a while since I posted anything up lately.. I just wanted to say that my Holiday Hump is OVER!! Today I am back on track and sticking to it until I’m at my goal 🙂 It took about 3 months to lose 40 pounds last time, so I am predicting by mid April I will be at my goal!

I have gained about 4 pounds back in a little over a month 😦 But I am happy with that since I have been cheating super bad!!!! I’m talking fast food, cakes, mexican foods… yeah those things will get ya!

Today I had scrambled eggs for breakfast, I will fast for lunch since I need to clear my system. I will drink water all day. Then hen I get home around 4:30pm I will make an omelete, prepare my meals for tomorrow, then work out at around 6pm. Since It’s cold and rainy here, I will be doing one of my So You Think You Can Dance (SYTYCD) videos! They are pretty fun 🙂 Now that I am 40 pounds lighter this should go a lot smoother LOL!

My husband is going to start his weight lifting program too! He wants to lose weight and bulk up. So, today I will research a plan for him 🙂

nikki in the FLESH! {part II}

Good evening my lovies!! So, I am bringing you another nikki in the flesh picture, well 1 because I think it’s amazing how far I’ve come in such little time (59 days to be exact) & 2 it is inspiring!! Ok, I will keep this short and sweet because I have a baby pup to watch.

215 to 189

Excuse the dirty mirror!!

Ok, my lovies have a great night!!

Out of the 190’s :D *Happy Dance*

Ok, so…. today I am 189.8, but I am NOT gunna say it officially until I am like 185 🙂 You know how weight fluctuates…. but I don’t care I am SUPER happy 🙂

Today my boss told me I looked so great, and she is a HUGE health nut! So it’s a really good influence for me. Having self-control is getting easier by the day. Like for example, someone brought BLUEBERRY MUFFINS for bfast here at work, and those are my absolute FAV!! But I didn’t get one. Then they had margaritas here at work and I controlled that craving :). I actually fit into these shorts that I have, and have had them in the closet 2 years!!! I am wearing them at work today. Don’t worry they aren’t short shorts lol. They are khakis and almost to the knee.

Well here is a pic of me, it’s not the best but you can see my shorts a little HAHA, ok better get to work.

Oh yeah.. and happy 10/11/12 🙂

It gets better, I promise!

What is it like to cut out your favorite food for a month? Very hard!! If any one says it’s easy then they have willpower of steel. To anyone going on a diet, trying to get healthy, watching how much they consume, etc… it does get better! I know how hard it is to look in the mirror everyday and HATE the person you see, the person you let yourself become. Many women blame it on their kids, others have no excuse. Men blame it on their wives cooking, others are just lazy or lost their metabolism. Well the FIRST step is to STOP PLAYING THE BLAME GAME!! The reason you gained weight is because of YOU!! I learned this just recently. Many of you may already be aware and know it’s your fault. But those in denial, please wake up and smell the coffee. There is a whole other world waiting for you!! Whether if you have 200 or 30 pounds to lose… you can do this!!!

I am telling you from all of my almost 10 years of struggling with weight… I went from skinny to fat in 5 years! But the 5 years before that when I WAS in shape… I thought I was FAT? So dumb. But that was the scary realization then, was I on the verge of anorexia? No, because I ate like a pig and loved it. I gained my weight when I got an office job, and turned from an active individual to a sedentary one. Yes, exercise IS an important part of staying fit. Well, if I could go back 5 years ago, I would tell myself to get up and go for a walk during my lunch break! Or go to the gym or park after work…. nope. I was a full-time student then too, so eating right and exercising was the LAST thing on my mind.

Well, now I am older.. ahem… almost 30… and I realize that if I want to have a successful pregnancy where if I am healthy the baby will be too! Overweight pregnancy is very dangerous, not just for the baby, but for you! Like diabetes, heart attack, baby is too big… they are possibilities, but are proven facts. So, now that I’m out of the 200’s… and almost out of the 190’s by 2 lbs 😀 YEP! I feel like a new person….

I was so down on myself before. Calling myself a loser, a fat ass that has to accept being this way now, an ugly bitch. Yes, I am mean to myself. But it’s tough love 🙂 I’m ok, and I am more inspirational and motivated to help others!!! I want to help people though this process. Even though I am not to my goal yet, I know I will be by my deadline! So, feel free to send me a message or comment. I love to hear feedback, and advice. As I love to give it as well.

My husband and co-workers are noticing my weight-loss and that makes me soooooo flippin’ happy!!! I feel proud of myself and like I am accomplishing a great task! Losing weight is not as easy as gaining, but it really can be when you do develop that willpower to keep on going. I am writing this to encourage anyone in my position. I now there are MANY out there, and my blog may only reach a few, but it’s a few more than none 🙂

Take the time out to appreciate yourself today.

Just pondering…

Good morning my pretties! I have been feeling down lately, not as much energy. I don’t know if I am feeling the lack of sugar or what? I am staying hydrated and eating well. Today I am going to the park after work and taking a light stroll to clear my thoughts and burn off some stress.

Well my sis-in-laws baby shower is coming up on the 21st, so I have a NEW goal! I keep talking about that dress I want to fit into, so I am hoping to zip it up easier by then. This is going to take a lot of discipline, even MORE than I have been doing, on my part. I have the food, I have the energy, I just need the will power.

I need someone to challenge me! I want to start a contest of some sort. Maybe like how many miles under x amount of time? It’s good to make motivational tools, mine is my weight chart hanging in my bathroom…. which is getting full by the way 🙂 So, that really helps me to stay focused on my task at hand.

I’m not losing weight JUST to fit into old clothes, I am doing this for my wellbeing, and to feel good about myself. I want to go out on the town with my husband again, put clothes on without cussing myself out for being fat. I want to love myself again. It’s so hard to do that when I hate myself for getting fat! Even though I have lost 24lbs total so far, I still have a long way to go.

I’m just sitting here pondering the future and what will happen to me…. will I stay focused or will I crack and cheat and give into temptations??? I want to say NO!!!!!!! I need a 2nd me, so I can slap myself if I try to do anything stupid to mess this up… lol. I have given 3 weeks of my all so far, and I have 5 weeks to go until phase 2. I can start adding a little diary and more seasonings 🙂 Like soy sauce…. I need to go buy more groceries so I can start cooking. Y’all I have been getting sooooo lazy about that. I just wish I had more encouragement.

I thought that starting a blog would help but no one ever comments, so I wonder if this is even worth it? Ok, bye.

I know, I know….

So I know I told y’all I’d post Monday but I am a very busy lady ok? I just wanted to update you with my progress on the Sona Medi-Slim program. Ok, so I think I love it 🙂 If I told y’all how much I lost you would just die. But go check out my weigh-ins page for that. Anyway I got my vita shot today and they make me feel better, I mean not like by a lot just a little. If I don’t eat breakfast I feel tired all day too… so I must make it a point to wake up earlier. It’s very strange because I have been getting plenty of sleep the past week and for some reason I am still so tired.

Anyway here are some pics to enjoy of our Dallas trip 😛

I haven’t been working out but I have been walking some. I am going back to the gym tomorrow for sure. Friday I have a meeting with my consultant, so I am pretty excited. Well have a great week!

Sona Medi-Slim

So hello 🙂 I went to my consultation at Sona today. I signed up for the Medi-Slim program!!!! I’m soooo excited to get started. I have blood work to do Monday. If you want info about it, it’s fully explained at http://www.sonamedspa.com and click Medi-Slim tab. To see really great results google Abby Memphis, TN radio station Medi-Slim. She lost 45lbs in 4 months and she’s keeping it off!! She’s training for a marathon right now!! I emailed her and she gave me great tips 🙂

My husband is excited for me too! This is a 6 month program. I go in every week for vitamin shots and weight ins!

Well TTY on Monday.

Periods SUCK! Period.

Hello all! Sorry I didn’t post yesterday, I was enjoying my Labor Day. I hope everyone had a great weekend, as did I! We took the babies to the park yesterday to swim, they were so cute! They had a lot of fun, so did we. The park I go jogging at also has a doggie park for them to swim. It was the first time we went, and we are def going back!

I decided to post once a week because I am so busy and I really don’t have time. I was on my period last week 😦 I read that the week before and during your menstrual you retain more water so the weight doesn’t come off, you actually gain! So that explains my no loss that one week.  Well I did not work out Wednesday because I was feeling miserable from Ms. menstrual 😦 But I am happy to report I did great though! Here are my results from last week.

This is my result from the park! Hubby went with me and I actually jogged for a whole mile!! My knees are paying for it though. 8-31-12

We went during the hottest time! You can see how I cut across the last lap lol. 9-2-12

My bunny friend from the trail LOL. 9-2-12

Well as you can see I’ve been busy! I feel so great though, actually feel less lazy 🙂 I took more time off this last week but I think I made up for it from Thursday and Friday’s results. I am going to see a nutritionist on Saturday. I feel like I am not eating right, even though I think I’m eating healthy. This should boost my weight loss too.. ok gotta go! Be sure to check out my weekly weigh-in tab!

Next Monday I am doing a Nikki in the FLESH post for y’all to see my inches lost. Ok, g’night!

WOWZA!

I’m gettin it!

Ok , so now I know! I have to increase the heart rate setting in order to burn more calories!! So, here are my results. Pretty awesome huh? Just imagine climbing a 125 story building stairs… that’s what I just did!!

I have to report on my overall wellbeing. I feel great. I have been weaning myself off of coffee and it feels good. I drink so much water and sweat so much in the gym. Before, when I used to work out, I used to not drink water all the time.. like, I’d go for months on just tea and sodas. I couldn’t break a sweat in the gym. But now I do and I love it! Just sweating out all those toxins.

I made turkey spaghetti tonight with tomato spinach sauce :p came out so good! I made the sauce homemade and idk if there has ever been a thing like it…. but I love it! I like to invent stuff lol… I used basil and oregano leaves (just a dash). I’ll add it to my recipes later. Well I have to go, I am going to do some browsing online for some cute stuff to inspire me.
