Weigh in Wednesday & Updates!

Good Morning :)

Today is Weigh in Wednesday with Erin & Alex.  Please click over and read all the lovely ladies who are participating and give them some love!


I weighed in this morning at 238, a good 4 pounds since the last time we chatted.  Good times.  I have lots of excuses, but none of them are good ones.  I once again ate healthy and exercised for a whole 2 days and then started eating like crap and sleeping in. 

Sunday night I came to a realization that it was January 20th of 2013, and I am about the same spot that I was in when I started this journey towards being healthy back in March of 2011.  That. Is. Pathetic.  I have no excuses.  I am educated, I know what I should and shouldn't be eating.  I have all the necessary tools: my fitness pal, gym membership, plethora of work out DVDs.  I just keep losing the motivation and determination I had back then. 

So I feel determined again.  I went to the gym last night and did 30 mins on the treadmill, 20 on elliptical & 5 on the bike. I also logged everything I ate, however some of that was pizza hut, but I was only over by about 200 calories.  I'm looking around for some good weight lifting routines too, so if you have any good ideas for a newbie in the gym let me know!My plan is to make a motivation board this week, with magazines clips and picture of things that inspire me.  I'll post when its done!

In other news, classes started again last week.  My classes should be pretty interesting.  I have a Information Design class which I hope will help me with blogging & expressing myself.  The other class is a Leadership class.  I took basically the same class last semester so it shouldn't be too bad.

Thanks for sticking around and reading, I did lose one follower last week? Man at 25 that's a lot! :)

Whats your favorite routine at the gym?


  1. Does your gym have Body Pump? that's a great weights class that will get your heart rate up! And there is always good ole Spin class! you can do it! Forgive Forget and move on! This is a new week and you can do it!!

  2. New follower! Just take one day at a time and don't give up on yourself! You are worth it!

  3. Take it one choice at a time and really think about whether eating it is worth the calories, that gets me every time.


  4. Girl it doesn't matter where you were last week, last month or in March of 2011. We're here, right now, and the only thing you can do is move forward. I'm glad you've found some motivation and I hope you're having a good week!
