Motivational Monday

Heeeeeeeeey hookers! Monday again and and although I always seem to screw up my hard week's progress on the weekend I did a little better this time! Small steps lead to big leaps, right? I got off my ass Saturday and did my C25K app and ate really good. Sunday funday is a whole other story. FAIL. Like I said small steps and hey one day outta the weekend instead of the whole weekend being crap is a step in the right direction.

Today I got my 74 oz water bottle filled up and am chugging. I will be doing C25K W1D3 today on my lunch break and nothing but healthy meals for me today! Let me leave you with a little motivation :)

This rings true to me in so many ways! It's time I start believing in myself and what I can do! I really don't give myself enough credit! I take care of my hubby and babies and everyone else so much that I often forget to take care of myself! Who else has this problem?

Let me know what your goals are for this week! Let's make it great!

New plan of action

FINALLY starting to feel like myself again! I have gotten rid of the horrible sickness and cough I had and starting to gain some clarity! Ya know I have never really had an AH-HA moment that everyone talks about. I have really just been trying to "diet" and "lose weight" all my life. But I am 99% sure that I finally had mine. Whatever dark place I was in for whatever reason led me to this conclusion. I was feeling sorry for myself, eating out of control, drinking cokes and wine like they were going out of style, and crying a lot. I was telling myself that I will always be fat, that I can't do it, and that I will never see my goal. I am just suppose to be this way. This is who I am and who I will always be. I was really feeling pretty damn low. 

Maybe I had to go through all of that to get to this moment. The moment I looked myself in the mirror and said you are so much more. You deserve so much better. You ARE worth it! 

So my new plan of action is being put into place. I will be starting the couch to 5k app on my iPhone tomorrow. I have signed up for a color run in March with my favorite girls. I have a walking/running trail literally ONE minute from my job. I will be utilizing this trail M-F from now on even if it is just to walk. I will be doing my Herbalife and healthy meals. I will be getting my 125 oz. of water in everyday. I WILL be happier and healthier in 2013!! 

Who's with me?

Pay It Forward

Seeing a lot of bloggers get in on the pay it forward 2013 movement! I am excited about this and decided to join in. I first saw it on Marcy's blog The Mustache Diaries go check it out! I love this idea and love paying it forward! 

The first 5 people to comment with their email and blog address will receive from me, sometime in this calendar year, a gift - perhaps a book, a baked good, music - a surprise! There will likely be no warning, it will happen when the mood strikes me. The catch? Those five people must make the same offer on their Blog.

Weigh-In Wednesday

So it has been 2 weeks since I have posted anything on my blog! I am/have been in a big ole funk!! It started off with the holidays, Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New years. Then I ended up getting very sick with bronchitis and I STILL have a cough and sore throat. During the holidays I ate a lot that I shouldn't have and fell back into old eating habits. When I got sick I couldn't exercise because I would cough up a lung.  So long story short, I have been eating shit and not moving my body at all. To be honest the funk didn't really even start until I got sick right at the New Year. I of course had made all these promises to myself that 2013 is going to be different and I was going to eat healthy every day, get my water in everyday, and exercise at least once 6 days a week. When I couldn't start my year the right way I started getting down on myself and a little depressed to be quite honest! I know it is only January 16th so I can still make 2013 my year if I start NOW. I really and honestly don’t know what is wrong with me. Will I get out of this sad stage before it’s too late? I sure hope so! I am the only one that can do this for myself and I am the only one to blame if I don’t.

For this weigh in Wednesday I have gained 5.2 pounds from last week which was also a gain. I am not proud or happy with myself. I have almost gained back the whole 10 pounds I had lost. I literally cried when I saw the number staring back at me this morning. This is a cycle with me always gaining and losing the same pounds and I struggle everyday to break all the bad habits I have had all my life. When will I ever see the light at the end of the tunnel?

Sorry for being the Debbie downer today but I have to get this out and off my chest so that hopefully I can start new and fresh. Thank you for reading and have a blessed day!

Weigh-In Wednesday

Linking up with Erin and Alex for weigh in Wednesday today! Go check out their blogs and link up too!!

I didn't even want to step on the dreaded scale this morning. I knew after a loss last week that my bad holiday eating and copious amounts of alcohol I consumed would catch up with me this week! I was right, as usual! Ha... 

I saw a 2.6 pound gain this morning and while at least it wasn't 5 lbs. still not the right direction. 


I have made a commitment to myself that in 2013 food will NOT define me! It will NOT have control over my life! I am taking that control back and starting a new and refreshing chapter in my life for the better! Started out late in the year 2012 in October and managed to lose 10 lbs. It is a loss but it is not my best effort! I will be putting 100 % into myself from now on and hope to be at goal or very near it by my 30th birthday October 15th, 2013!! 

I have joined a Dietbet that starts today and goes for 28 days. The goal is to lose 4% of my weight (which is 10 lbs.) in that time frame to split the pot with whoever else reaches their 4% goals!!  The pot is up to $1680 and there is still time to join for $10 buy in if you want in click here and go for it! 

The dietbet on top of the Biggest Loser challenge I am going to participate in starting January 9th will help me along and keep me motivated. Here is hoping that this year will be great and successful!

What are your plans and goals for 2013?
