Weigh -In Wednesday plus late weekend recap

Happy Halloween ladies!! Weigh in Wednesday sucked balls today! I stayed the exact same from last week. At least it is not a gain so I'll have to stay positive. I've been meaning to do a post since Monday but my hubby and I went on a weekend trip to San Antonio for his 30th birthday this past weekend. I made some very little healthy choices! We did walk everywhere we went so I'm sure that helped. We walked the river walk, had a fajitas and ritas dinner Friday, had a romantic dinner in the Towers of Americas Saturday, and went to the traders village Sunday before heading home.

 It was a really nice weekend with lots of quality time with my husband. We both enjoyed it so much! We came back Sunday and had the day off Monday so we just relaxed around the house and I got back to my routine. Tuesday back at work felt like a big ole Monday to me and it sucked! I made some pumpkin muffins for the first time last night and they are yummy and turned out to be only 114 calories each. Awesome.

 I am feeling really good today and like I can stay on track and do good finally. Tried my first Luna bar (one of the healthy choices I made) and it was pretty good. I got an extra so I ate it Tuesday morning.

I am finally starting the C25K tomorrow come hell or high water lol. I also just purchased the Turbo Jam Dvd's and hope to get my sweat on when those get here next week. Have my November calendar printed out so I can plan ahead (something I suck at) with food and exercise and be ahead of the game. I only lost 3 lbs. the whole month of October and I KNOW I can do better! I need to get my ass in gear because nobody is going to do this for me! I definitely want to be slimmer by December!! Let's kick November's ASS!!!!

                                                    Just tried this soup today! Love it! SO good
                                                    and only 200 calories for the whole can!

Weigh In Wednesday

So here it is peeps the dreaded scale pic down only one pound from last week! But a loss is a loss so I'll take it. I will be so glad to get out of the 250's for good!!

So today is my wonderful husband's 30th Birthday! I got up a the crack ass of dawn and cooked him a birthday breakfast that included Cake batter pancakes click {here}for recipe on my food pinterest board, eggs, and bacon. I did so good and did not even have a bite!! I brought the leftovers to work and fed the guys here so I didn't eat it when I got home either. Big victory for me because I like LOVE sweets!! First time I've ever made the cake batter pancakes and hubby said they were delicious.

I only have to work till noon tomorrow and then off till next Tuesday. A little getaway just the hubs and I to San Antonio Riverwalk. Staying at the Omni in a river view room and I heard it is suppose to be really nice! Have I said I can't wait. I am still going to try and blog everyday so we will see how that goes.

Happy Hump Day Hookers!

Feels like Monday all over again

So everybody has heard the saying "You find out who your REAL friends are". I am finding out more everyday who those people really are and how fake other people can really be. Someone who I was once really close to but now only talk to every couple months because of distance, really hurt me in a way I didn't think she ever would. Long story short I will never speak to her again because of it and it's really sad to me. I will never understand why people will lie, and connive to get people to accept them. Why hurt other people for your benefit? I just don't get it. On the other hand I am glad I am weeding out the fakes and only have time and room in my life for the few real friends I do have. The ones that no matter what will always stand by my side and never stab me in the back.

So needless to say my Monday really sucked yesterday and today it feels like Monday all over again. Luckily it's Tuesday and one more day closer to Friday. I am really looking forward to Friday because tomorrow my hubby turns the big 30 and we are taking a trip just him and I to San Antonio this weekend! Maybe baby #3 in the making lol I'm just kidding...ish 

On another note I've been reading up on all the blogs I found lately and I love them all. I get so much different perspectives on everything from some incredible people. When I first started my blog not too long ago I wanted to do a daily entry. As you can see I haven't done that. One of my goals is to start doing it because I really think it will keep me more accountable. Here's some motivation for ya!

Have a good day!!

Hello hook-stars!! Today is my 29th birthday!

Bummed it's on a Monday and I have to work,but I am going to make it a great day anyway!! I had a good weekend with family and friends and lots of food!! I am already tired of eating out and still have to go two more times today. Friday it was Red Lobster with some family.

                                                    My LobsterRita from Red Loster Friday night

More motivation from Mama L

Wow! Mama L’s guest post from her hubby sure got me thinking today! How my husband must feel as I am on this weight loss journey. How despite my weight gain he still tells me he loves me just the way I am and still shows me love. I wonder if he ever wishes I looked like was the girl he met almost 12 years ago. Of course he does! He has insecurities about me “leaving him” when I get “skinny” as he says. Of course I would never! I cannot even imagine what I look like “skinny”. In my eyes I have never been and will probably never be thin. Even if I get to my goal weight of 150 lbs. I will still be a curvy girl and that’s ok with me. As long as I get there and get healthy for my little girls.

I always tell my hubby that when I do get to my goal he is going to like LOVE it, he just doesn’t know it yet. I tell him how much more flexible I’ll be and how much more comfortable in the bedroom. Don’t get me wrong we have an awesome “bedroom” life and always have. That is one thing that is very strong in our relationship. I couldn’t imagine it getting much better but I know that if I am that much more comfortable with myself that it can.

The post really gave me even more motivation to find my inner skinny bitch and release her. Not only for me but for my hubby and all the good things that come with being happy, healthy, and fit. That being said it is going to take a lot of work, dedication, and determination. I am up for the challenge and I know it will not come overnight or even in a few weeks, or months. It will take time, effort and patience. I am glad to have my hubby by my side to support me no matter what.

Have a happy Thursday hookers!!

Freaky Friday

I am determined to make good choices this weekend!! I had a horrible day yesterday and my cheat meal turned into a cheat day! That's how it always goes with me, I self sabotage and I just need to learn to stop the cycle! How? I have no clue but I am taking one day at a time and trying to make one good decision in place of a bad one I would have made before. Baby steps, right?

I plan on doing the 30DS day 4 and 5 tonight since my ass didn’t do it last night. I am loving all the support I get from the ML fit page! I facebook creep the page all day lol. Big shout out to Mama Laughlin because without her blog, I wouldn’t have found the fit page! Loved Mama L’s blog post the other day! And I love how candid and open she is! I, like many of you eessed some mean D the other night especially because of her post!  So to all the haters sending hateful comments anonymously - you are LAME!!

Hope all you hookers have an awesome weekend!!

Time to catch my breath

I have not posted in almost a week. The past week has been so hectic and emotional. I found out last week that my best friends brother was in the hospital again. He is in need of a new heart and is at the top of the donor list. He had an LVAD put in a couple months ago and that quit working. Since last Thursday he has had 4, yes I said FOUR open heart surgeries. They are like my second family and I love them dearly! I can't believe something like this is happening to such good hearted people, but God has a plan for everyone. So I pray daily and leave it in His hands.

On top of that my hubby and I have not been in a good place, I mean do single women these days not know how to leave a married man alone?? Really whorebag he is mine and he is not going to leave me for you, so get the eff over it!!  We finally made a renewed commitment to be better communicating with each other so it should only get better from here!!

I took my measurements, weight, and before pics on Sunday (Sept.30th) night. I was horified. Do people really see me this way? I couldn't believe how far I have let myself go and I felt ashamed! It gave me even more determination to go for this and do soething for myself for a change!! I am alwys putting everyone else in front of myself and it's time to be a little selfish! I started the JM challenge yesterday and man I felt the burn!! Today is day 2 and even though I am so sore I am ready to do it!

 I am reaady to make October the best month of this year so far! Just blogging all this makes me feel better. I got this!!!!
