2. Run 3 miles 2x's
3. Try a new healthy recipe
4. Weigh in at 125.6
5. Blog at least 3x's

Ok so those are my goals! I am going to meet them this week. Have a busy busy weekend ahead but it will be fun and good times. But still need to stay on track. I will be tested for sure, with Bunco on Friday, Sat. BBQ for my nephew, Sun. lunch and BINGO for my Mom's 60th bday... Truly tested, but I WILL come up ahead... Not working this hard for nothing I tell ya! =)

Yesterday recap:

Not bad, my loseit says I was below 873 calories, but I did EAT 1283 is my work out that off sets it. Plus while baking chocolate chip cookies I think I tasted the dough 3 times... so that has to really count for like 100 calories, being they have 1 cup of BUTTER! =) lol

Brkfst: A LOT OF CAL. tall nonfat chi tea, bacon Gouda cheese egg sami from Starbucks.. yummy and only 350 calories

Lunch: followed thru and ate my lunch from Friday since I went to SMFCO instead.... 1/2 TUNA sami with NO mayo on the bread but some in the Tuna, I'm not that crazy. =) with small bag of carrots, 1/2 bag of Veggie sensations LOVE THOSE darn things and only 130calories for the whole bag.

Dinner: I was denied... you know us moms... I got home and did my P90X Chest & Back video along with Ab Ripper. my arms are still tired =) Then hurried and got cleaned up a little, ran to get Aliyah in SP from her dads, then over to a MK customers house to see which foundation looked better on her (YES she ordered), then to VONS for things we needed, then home, to get Aliyah to bed... FINALLY time for Dinner, no time for Tilapia and veggies being it was 8:20 by this time, so my dinner was 4 Egg whites and 2 yokes... They were yummy tho...oh and 1oz of Cashews. =) After baking for 2 more hours for Aliyahs school and doing laundry and the dishes, getting Aliyahs and my lunch ready for the next day, I called it a night when Rod got home around 11:00PM from working since 1:00AM that morning.

We are amazing ladies, I tell ya. There isn't anything we CAN NOT do... You put the task in front of us and we will get it done, and do what ever we need to get get there...

Today on the menu:
Brkfst - nonfat yogurt and granola, strawberries
Lunch - homemade lunch salad with a little bit of ranch
Dinner - ?? not sure Aliyah's cousin is in town that we want to try and see for a little bit. PLUS must get home to do P90X-PLYO is on deck today.

RHON... where you be, I need some crock pot ideas! Tuesdays are game days and I don't want to eat nachos and cheese fries every week for sure... so I need some ideas!

I am so pumped... Laura I think you vicariously rubbed off on me. lets walk or jog or something this week or weekend!!! Lots going on these days need the support of my girls!

March = Spring time = getting serious

Monday, March 7, 2011

YAY!!! I love reading what my girls are doing!!!!

I have been away for a bit, well I was getting lonely for one, but then I just got really really busy and then I got sick! GEEZO...
But I am back now, and ready to keep working....

Now where I have been and what I have been doing.

I love love love this Loseit ap.. really I think it helps me so much. OH and if you don't have the ap you can go to and do everything there... I sometimes go there instead and it automatically updates on my phone.
Before getting sick last week I was doing good with my running and walking... Then I got sick. I didn't work out for a week, but keep with in the range of my good eating. After Sat. the 26 I didn't want to drink for a little while... one to many strawberry margaritas... =/

Where I am now.

ONE plus from being sick, I lost 4 pounds!!! =) So when I weighed in on Wed. I was down to 126.4!!!! I was happy.

Sunday (yesterday) I got back out there and ran 3.5 miles. Then when I got home the kids wanted to go jogging, so we ended up jogging for 1 more mile. I loved it, loved that the kids were out there with me, getting some exercise, and wanting to do it!

This weeks plan: I am suppose to be on the second phase of P90X right now BUT being that I only did it about 5 times in the last 30 days... I think I need to start again.
Rod and I both are trying to not drink very much. BUT when things come up like an event we will splurge.

GOAL This week:
1. Do P90X 4 times this week
2. Weigh in at 125.5 this Wed.
3. Run 2 times this week
4. BLOG 3 times this week.

It felt like summertime on Sat. I loved the weather, but was not near wearing summertime clothes (i.e. shorts) so I am determined to change that come spring time!!! Just around the corner.


Progress, slowly but surely....

Friday, March 4, 2011

Hi Ladies!

Here I am, it's been a while but glad to be here! I am always sooooooo busy at work and it is the easiest time for me to blog. Anyway... I was stuck in the 141 range for quite some time (and most recently, last week) but I am happy to report I was 138 this morning! I have been trying to focus on portions, smaller frequenet meals and little or no carbs at night. I read that Cameron Diaz takes this approach and really, it makes sense for me. I have been trying to have fruit, breads, rice or pastas (small portions of course!) in the first half of the day for breakfast or lunch, then only have protein and veggies in the evening and really it has seemed to work for these few pounds that I have lost. I know it will be hard to do it ALL the time (especially when my Dad whips up a yummy, carb filled meal for dinner sometimes!) but in general if I can make that a habit then it won't be such a painful regime to stick to!

Yesterday I had a turkey wrap from Mimi's for lunch- the whole thing was between 700-750 calories which sounds bad but I only ate half so 350-375 calories is not bad at all. I would normally have eaten the other half for dinner, but with my "approach", I saved the other half for lunch today, and I had cornish game hen and veggies for dinner last night.

I know that when I actually do get to work out in the evening, this approach might not work well since I will need the extra energy to get through a good workout at night, but for now this seems to make sense for my activity level.

I hope you are all having a good day and have a fabulous weekend!!!

  • I'm working out now.
  • I LOVE working out now.
  • I'm eating WAY healthy.
  • I understand working out is going to build muscle so I may not see my weight decreasing very much.
  • I have found my groove.
  • I LOVE you girls.
  • Early morning weekend walk get togethers...anyone? anyone?
  • I don't write in often, but I read our blog everyday.
  • This is a great article I just found: HERE.
  • A friend told me that we need to take time and invest in ourselves over all...meaning taking time to exercise the mind, body and soul...literally investing in ourselves and buying good healthy food, bars, shakes, supplements, etc.
  • I know I sound like a wacko and not myself.
  • I seriously have found my groove.
  • It took some time finding it, but I love how I'm feeling.
  • Portion control is key.
  • Although I'm focused on getting healthy, I'm not losing sight of fun time splurges. I get the weekends to cheat a little. My weekends are Friday and Saturday. If we're together on a Sunday, please help keep me accountable ;)
  • The Lose it! app is awesome!
  • I LOVE you girls!
