SO....crazy yet fun weekend. Spent too much money and ate too much bad food. :( extra gym time required this week!!! And here is the result from Saturdays official weekly weigh in:

Wahoo!!! I moved some things yesterday and made sure my scale was one of them. I obsess over it too much! So it's outta sight for about a week. This means I need to kick major ass!

Happy Monday everyone! To end this quick blog, here's a few random pics from this weekend of my mama and I...

Packing up my apartment a little tonight...kinda sad. :( I may be moving a little more quickly than anticipated. Prayers are appreciated.

Weight this morning was 210.4 this morning. So 2.2 loss! Sorry I didn't get a pic but I was in a mad dash. No pic or it didnt happen right? haha I'll get one at the OFFICIAL weigh in tomorrow. I may a little delayed in posting it because my mama is coming down for the weekend.

So much craziness going on!

Ohhhh happy day

Quick blog!

I went to the gym tonight and hit the elliptical first as usual. I've only been able to do about 20 min before I'm dying. But tonight, ten minutes in, it just seemed so much easier. I checked my incline and resistance to make sure it all was right and sure enough it was. So i trekked on for 35 min burning 310 calories! It's amazing to see how only less than a week of consistency is already paying off in the form of my body adapting. Hopefully the scale will be as kind Saturday lol!

Other than that, today was a dull work day. I did get a new hair do though! I'm posting from my phone though so I'll have to upload a pic in the next post! That way at least you cam have a face to pair my blogs with as well!

Random thought: I think all my old pics of me at my largest are at my exes still. I need to scope out my parents house...

Screw up day numero uno....

Hey there everyone! I am quite upset with myself....

My job brought us in food today. BBQ, coleslaw, beans, chip and dip...ya know...all that good, greasy stuff that's just hard for a southern girl to resist. I sat there at my desk watching everyone pass with their plates and I tried...oh how I tried to ignore that fragrant, mouth watering aroma coming down the stairs. I finally gave in and got a plate. :(

BUT IT'S NOT THE END OF THE WORLD! Right? Yes...right. Haha that just means extra time in the gym tonight. (I so slept through my alarm this morning.... :/ ) I'm looking at the fact that I'm beating myself up as good though because that means this time I care. So yay for the small victories!

My mama is coming down this weekend to enjoy downtown before I head back home. She is one of those people who just never eats out so she has already let me know that shes excited about all the different restaurants around here. I don't look forward to how tough that's gonna be. BUT it'll be good times. I'll be sure to post lots of pics!

So as far as working out, I've been doing about 30 min on an elliptical, 10 on the treadmill (really want this number to climb), and then climbing 7 flights of stairs home. I know it'll become easier over time and I'll be able to bump up my times. Looking forward to that :)

By the way, to all my new readers, hello and thanks for joining me on my journey! Feel free to leave a comment with your info and I'll be happy to be an extra support system for you.

FINALLY! It allowed my pic to upload! This is from Saturday the 20th. My starting weight. I'm really trying only to allow myself to weigh once a week. I think, for myself anyways, it'll be better mentally and better motivation not to be obsessing over the scale. I have lost 13 pounds since the last time I weighed...so this was definitely a pleasant surprise. My initial goal is 150. I'd like to be at 195 by the 23rd of next month. My pal and I are hitting Dallas to see Maroon 5 and Train (YAY) so it'd be nice to be making headway by then.

Until next time....

keep on rockin in the free world

Yeah apparently I'm a quitter....

Well hello again.

I haven't been here since March! That's flipping depressing. What's happened in my life?

Well I have had a lot of fun, met a lot of new people, had some hard spots, and even took a new job. But now its all about to change again! I have wanted to go to cosmetology school for the longest time. Long story short, school is 9k cheaper back in my home town and my parents have offered to let me live with them for free while I go. Which means I could go full time and just work at night to pay basic bills. As much as I hate to leave "the big city", I know its for a happier career and life in the long run. PLUS its not even for a full year.

SOOOOOOOOO I have played yoyo diet here a few times I believe but still haven't accomplished shiz. That's changing now. I am so incredibly determined!! I have just absolutely had it with my body and all the hang ups I have because of it. So with one pretty expensive shopping trip down today, I have gotten all I need to get going seriously. I'll be in LR for about another month so I'll take advantage of my apartment's gym during that time. Once back in my hometown, I plan on joining my bff's gym and working out with her in the mornings. Not to be mushy but she's an incredible inspiration!!! Happy almost 100 girl!

So I have starting pics but it keeps rejecting them. I'll try to upload those later!!! But ultimately, my starting weight is 212.6.

Beautiful weather makes me wanna take off....

Hey everyone. I havent done that great of a job here I'm afraid! :/ Ive really got to get pics up tonight!!!

I ordered a new pair of running shoes. I'm SO excited!! This is about the time of year that I started running at the healthiest point in my life and I'm STOKED to get back to that! They should be in tomorrow.

I've done REALLY good with eating!!! I'm limiting myself to 1300 calories and I'm trying to eat at least a small snack every 3-4 hours. I don't have a scale at home so I can't weigh myself. I like 2fivefive's idea of posting weights every Friday. BUT, just so I'm not entirely copying off of her, wuhaha, I'll go with Saturdays. :) I can't wait to get out and exercise though!! That's when the weight really starts coming off.

I'm going to try my hardest to pour myself into this journey, new job, and new city! I'd be lying if I said every day wasn't a battle dealing with heartache and all the change going on...but, as one of my favorite songs says, "Sometimes goodbye is a second chance". I refuse to be broken. Conquering this weight loss will just prove to me that I'm still that independent girl who is perfectly capable of taking care of herself.

Keep on rockin
