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!!

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.

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!

So tonight….

Well I did what I said. I got off work, went to the store, then came home and got dressed to go walking! I did great, except it was soooo hot. Took me 48 minutes to walk 2 miles. I wear a sweat band around my waist and a sweat jacket. I usually bring water but today I didn’t so I wouldn’t have to worry about carrying something. Wish I did though, because the sun killed me. I burned 223 calories 🙂

When hubby got home I was nearly passed out on the sofa. He put on Insanity and I got up to do it. I did most of it, but felt so drained from the heat I had to just stop! I was hungry and getting a headache too because I didn’t eat enough calories today. Maybe I will eat something before I work out then a light little meal afterwards. At work I eat baby carrots, drink TONS of water… almost over 104oz a day! Plus it’s cool there because the owners are big health nuts and always eating healthy, so it inspires me. 2 of my co-workers are working out and dieting too, so I have people to keep me going. I think it’s a lot harder to do it alone. Especially when temptation is all around 24/7.

Heres the trail behind my apartment. Hardly any shade for 2 miles!

Gene Green Park

Oh! If you have a phone with apps, you have to download MapMyRun, I think it’s free. But it’s awesome because it will map your trail and you can save it to compare your times. If you have music playing a voice comes over it a little to tell you after each mile what your time was for that mile! You can save your calories burned, and calorie intake for the day. I love it 🙂

Right now I feel super tired. I baked some tilapia with corn for dinner. I feel a lot better now that I ate! But I can’t go to sleep until I watch my show Pretty Little Liars♥

My plan for tomorrow is to get up earlier (today I got up late) so I can have breakfast and get as many calories as I can. Trying to stay under 1500 right now until I increase my fitness activity level. Well goodnight people.

You can do this!
