Weigh in Wednesday

That time of the week again! Weigh in Wednesday with Erin & Alex


This has been a good week for me. I started Insanity last week, did the fit test last Wednesday and then picked up the workouts again on Saturday.  I really like it. I take a lot of break & modify somethings but I can definitely feel myself improving. Taking a rest tonight and will do day six tomorrow. 

Weighed in this morning at 239.4 and since it is TOM and I didn't track calories well last week I am happy with that number. Can't wait to see what next week holds!

Going grocery shopping tomorrow and that always helps keep me in line. When I have  good supply of healthy and yummy food it is easier for me to stick to the plan and not eat out.  I also have noticed I do well when I pre plan my food in my fitness pal for the next day.  Going on three days strong! :)

Check back tomorrow for Finish the Sentence link up with Holly & Jake!

Weigh in Wednesday

It is Wednesday so you know what that means....Weigh in Wednesday with my faves Erin & Alex

After my great week last week, I did what I always do I eat whatever I want.. However I did keep getting my exercises in so that's good. My running has not been awesome lately and I am pretty sure I need new shoes. I do plan on getting new ones next week, but i was hoping I could make it work. after my run last night I am not so sure. So this morning I decided to do Insanity! Again, I know. I did the fit test.

Of course I compared my results to the first time I tried Insanity and my number were mostly lower, so that was annoying. I am attributing that it to be early and being sore this morning. Either way its a good number to start with and progress :)

After my horrible run last night I did what any normal person would do.. I went to McDonald's for dinner, smart move I know. So I decided not to weigh in this morning and stress myself out, so no number this week. 

Anyway that is all I have for you this week, hopefully I keep up with Insanity and get my new shoes this week!

Happy Hump Day!!

Purse Party Linkup with Erin and Mel!

Happy Friday! I am liking up with two of my absolute favorites Erin & Mel showing whats in my purse! It was supposed to go up yesterday but I am battling an annoying ear infection yuckyness. So here you go :)

My purse is coach. I just got in about a month ago and I'm in love. I had had wristlets before but this is my first purse.

Shockingly my purse was pretty clean, not any trash or receipts, clearly I cleaned it out recently.

All of the stuff from the inside.
  • I have papers for school.
  • Pink & Purple bag
  • Medicine
  • Body Spray
  • Gum
  • Tweezers
  • Nail glue & polish
  • keys
  • headpand
  • mirror
  • wristlet
  • checkbook & pen
  • necklace
  • card carrier
  • glasses case
Whew I think that's it.

In side pocket in my purse also has a bunch of random stuff. A pad, meds, glasses wipes and random stuff.

I don't carry a real makeup bag with me but this little bag has lip smacker, blistex, mirror, lotion & mini tooth brushes.

I love seeing everyone's purses so this was super fun to do.

I am attempting to redo my blog layout and colors and stuff so please give me any feedback you have!

Weigh in Wednesday

Goooooood Morning! It is time for another Weigh in Wednesday with Erin & Alex

This has been a great week for me all around. Since last Tuesday I have tracked all my calories and stayed under except for Monday. That fact alone makes me very proud of myself and happy. I have also done Jillian once, and did C25K four times!! I also started a daily challenge with a facebook group
Get Your Ass in the Gym! Check them out & tell them I sent you :). Basically they have a calendar they post and you do the workout of the day. I am loving it so far.

With all my hard work I was anxious this morning to step on the scale....

This is 1.6 pounds down from last Wednesday.. I am not going to lie at first I was a little disappointed, I was hoping for a more dramatic, bigger number. Then I reminded myself I certainly did not gain this weight in a week, it isn't going to go away that quickly either. Its funny when someone else loses a pound you get so excited and congratulate them but when it is you, you are annoyed. I am happy though. It is not even about that number or the scale. I worked hard this week and nothing can take that away from me.

Erin's diet bet was over this week and I did not win. Shocker :) But I am in another one that started last week & I have high hopes. Congrats to everyone who is in this one and met their goal!

That's all I have for Weigh in Wednesday this week. Again thank you so much for all who have been supporting me and offering such sweet words on twitter, IG & facebook. Your the best, seriously.

Ps.. I created a twitter for the blog, check me out & leave your name if I don't already follow you! Healthy Sew Twitter!

Pps. I am excited to link up with my faves Mel & Erin tomorrow for "Whats in Your Purse" Make sure you check it out!
