62 days till 1.1 (10-31)

Yesterday was Halloween I kicked BUTT all day long I trained a client, then had a consult, then went to the park, walked 45 minutes, then went to another client, and then walked again for 45 minutes, my food was 100000% on track until ... until... yep.. that damn Halloween candy that I SWORE I was not going to touch....

 Needless to say I've had my fill and don't even have a desire for it today, actually the thought of eating chocolate makes me ill! ughhhh....

So even though I had a killer day I give myself a D- because I caved into the candy...

ALL THE CANDY!!!! --- No I didn't eat all that-- I had like 5 pieces of candy!! EEEK

Me as BatGirl!

64 days till 1.1

I restarted my 90 day challenge on Monday, which will take me till 1/26 - The realization that my 36th birthday was less than 90 days away was quite a wake up call! I started my journey in 2010 and got to where I wanted to in less than 2 years,  then the separation/divorced happened and I stayed right where I was for weight (maintained). Then 2013 came around and I vowed, I'll finish this journey, I'll get on track and make it happen, well it's now the 29th of October and I weight exactly what I weighed at the beginning of the year... I can call it a plateau I can say my body just wont let go of anymore I can call it what I really want but the truth of the matter is, I haven't pushed myself as hard as I really could have to make it happen. I think we all go through those struggles on our journey, some last longer than others, but it's what you learn from it in the end that makes or breaks you.

Honestly, my eating has been all over the place, especially since May when I got a boyfriend, lots of eating out, traveling and unhealthy  choices,  my weight would go down 10lbs then back up and then down and up and so on.,. Now that the boyfriend is no more, it's really time I focus on finishing this journey and  making my goals and dreams happen. I do not want to enter 2014 the same size I was when I entered 2013, I am focused and ready to do this!!

Had an AWESOME day yesterday, went for a walk and decided to try jogging (something I hadn't done in prob 8 months) and realized very quickly just how fast you lose your cardio endurance if you don't use it regularly. I used to run NON STOP 6 miles and not even think about it, yesterday I had all I could do to run .25 of a mile!! That made me mad, mad that I had let myself go! WHAT? That's not me, and boy let me tell you, it lit a fire in me, I was in true BEAST MODE all day and even in the evening when I normally lose control I had complete control of my mind and didn't even think about binging or caving into my emotions.

I got this !

73 days.. 10/19

Been a lazy day... I was on track for most of the day, then had some cookie dough last night.... 

Friday, October 18, 2013

74 days until 1.1.14 Oct 18th

I could make a million excuses why I don't want to work out today, I was up late couldn't sleep have a headache, stomach hurts but yet I have my shoes on and I"m going exercise. #noexcuses #beastmode #determined #roar -- Woo hoo update, went and walked outside for an hour!

I had the opportunity to go out to dinner tonight but they were going to Golden Corral, a place I lose all willpower and self control at so I opted not to go. Made a Banana cinnamon shake instead!!  I am so determined to stay on track!!
I'm worth it!!!

Starting my meal plan from my coach tomorrow and strength training she sent me. I will weigh & measure as well.

75 days til 1.1 (10/17)

I would have to say I had a great day yesterday, didn't get as much exercise as I wanted but overall I'm pleased with my day!!

40 mins exercise with client
35 mins elliptical
20 pushups
3 mins jumping rope.

I managed to stay in my calories ranges, had a bit of a lapse when I saw the cookie dough on my table, but with the help of my daughter Gracie I only ate 2 and then stopped!! (THANKS GIRL!!)
Went out to dinner, planned ahead & stayed within my ranges of 1200-1450 for the day!! WOO HOO!

 drink 14 glasses of water everyday ☺
 -track all of my food -stay in my ranges - 1200-1450 ☺
 -exercise 90 minutes 5 times a week - ☺
walk every single day at least one mile -
have at least 1000 calorie deficit ☺
 -drink two Vi shakes a day
 -check in with my coach ☺

myfitnesspal say : If every day were like today... You'd weigh 163.9 lbs in 5 weeks--

New Goals until 1/1

I cannot believe we are less than 80 days away from 2014. This whole year has just slipped away, it's been interesting for sure, weight wise I've been about the same wait for the entire time.  I'm losing the same 10 pounds over & over & over.
No more games I am going to push through that 10 pounds, break through the barrier and finish this journey once and for all!!!!!! 

I actually hired an online coach to help me as well, I am always supporting other people and really have no support of my own so having her for the accountability will be great, it will be weird to be the one getting support instead of the one supporting. even the best of the best need someone to help them & coach them sometime. so I'm going to be a good student and listen.

Today is day 2 that I have been back on track from Disney, and I'm doing great, I trained my client then walk for 4 miles at the park

my goals until 1.1.14 are:

-drink 14 glasses of water everyday
-track all of my food
-stay in my ranges - 1200-1450
-exercise 90 minutes 5 times a week
-walk every single day at least one mile
-have at least 1000  calorie deficit
-drink to Vi shakes a day
-check in with my coach

Back from Disney

Back to being 100% accountable!! There's only 90 days till New years eve, I am going to work my tail off to get as far as I can down.. I've had a rough few months, and its time to get serious!!!!! I'm not happy with where I am, I'm pissed off that I've allowed myself to slack so much since May and I have decided it's time to STOP THIS and MAKE IT HAPPEN

I will NOT enter 2014 heavier than I entered 2013, I refuse!! I will do what it takes and make it happen!!!!!!

These photos piss me off, I hate how big I look Im not happy at all. UGH my jeans are tight, my shirt is tight... perfect example of why I need to get my ass back on track and get my act together and stop the games.. I'm tired of the up down stuff. I don't like looking like this, and it's time to fix it!!

sugar crazy 9/6

started the day yesterday pretty good, got 2 hours of exercise in before 9 a.m., I was on track really until about 4 p.m. then I started just not caring and instead of cooking dinner I decided we're going out for dinner, went to Logan's and I made decent choices.  I ordered onion petals but I share them with the girls, which normally I eat by myself and then I ordered a house salad, a grilled chicken and biscuits mashed potatoes, which wasn't bad but I know I had way too many peanuts!!
and then it went downhill from there, went to Walmart and bought a box of Reese's Pieces, and a coconut white chocolate bar. I devoured both of them in about 10 minutes, and then later I have a Klondike bar not sure exactly how many calories I had but I know that I shouldn't have had that many.
I'm not going to beat myself up over it it's just time to move on from it, I've come so far this month and I'm not going to stress about it. it is what it is I made those choices now I have to make the rest of the weekend better!!
Moving along

I had a really  day took the girls to get frappes from McDonalds and I wasn't even tempted to buy one yay! it was so easy to only order 3.
Later in the evening,  the children wanted ice cream and I again decided I didn't want any! I really didn't even have a desire or want for it.

Still chugging along.. slowly but surely 37/90

Been a bit rocky but I'm still going.. making a little progress each day!!!

Refreshed and renewed, back on track for a few days and moving forward.

Friday! What a fun day 31/90 days

What a day! Trained 2 clients back to back, the first one was 30 minutes of cardio, then I went to the next one and we went for a walk, him carrying a 30 pound ball in a backpack, me carrying 2 kettlebellls, one 15 & one 10 pound and we walked 2 miles!! woo hoo! Came back to his house and did boxing with weights!!

Food wise was ok, lunch was a little higher because I chose to have some tator tots!!  but balanced it out for the evening and didn't actually binge higher in calories but still had a deficit so  not beating myself up for it. Just pressing forward.

Left my phone on my trunk and drove off, retraced my route twice and it was gone, thinking someone found it... so now I'm without a phone until I can get a replacement!! UGH

Finished the day at 1368 calories 154 Carbs, 43 Fat, 94 Protein,1582 Sodium & 32 Fiber

Getting there.

It's always tougher on me when my boyfriend is in town to make healthier choices, but I've been doing fairly decent, and getting my exercises in so it's not been "Terrible" Thursday we went for BBQ which put me higher, then Friday I stayed on track, last night I felt a binge coming on so I made a Vi banana bread thing and ate that instead of everything in the cupboard. Heres to a great day, a great week rocking my journey~!!

Thursday, August 15, 2013

Let's see, where was I again? Oh yeah.....Day 23

Been awhile since I've blogged, not sure why  I stopped, other than the fact that I have been off track, easier to not face it if I don't have to blog about it, I did great, then bad then great, then went to South Carolina and we wont even talk about all the fried foods that I ate!! YUCK!!  Came home scale had me at 177 again.. Dammit I'm so sick of this up and down shit!!!! I found this on facebook the other day, and I'm TOTALLY gonna make it happen. Time to kick ass and get this journey back where it needs to be!!

Monday I heard Katy Perry's new song ROAR, omg that is my Song!!! OMG! I have been "Roar"ing since I started my journey, when I created the Dandy Lions team & got the tattoo, it's time for me to ROAR again!!  

Been 100% on track and feeling really great the last couple days!! Business is picking up and I'm working out lots now!! Nutrition for the last 2 days have been GREAT!!!
