Weekly Weigh In




















Weekly weigh in results: -2

Oh booyah! Pretty happy with this weeks results. I'm surprised I lost anything. It's hard to stay on track with birthdays, bbq's, and especially when you throw in a trip to Roscoes Chicken And Waffles.

Weekly Weigh In























Weekly weigh in results: -4 lbs.

Not bad for a week, I don't expect that same amount this week coming up. Usually the first week back to eating right and working out are the kick start. The goal for this week will be 2 lbs, but I would be happy with 1. Slow and steady wins the race.

Let's Get Physical






















Starting Wednesday I brought my lazy butt back to the gym. When I checked in at the front counter I realized I hadn't been there since December 20th, 2010. Good Lord! Had it really been THAT long?! It didn't seem like that much time had gone by, but when I started working out I could feel it had been that long. Luckily I hadn't gained back all of the weight I had put off, but I could definitely see a difference in where I had toned up some. So why do I share this on here? Well, accountability for one, for two it helps me see my progress along the way.

My motivation for going back in the day was to be healthy (of course) and also because I had my India trip coming up so I wanted to be as fit as possible. When India got postponed I somewhat lost any motivation to keep going. With the combination of holidays thrown in, I didn't stand a chance. My motivation this time? Summer camp in August! That and the original reason of wanting to be as healthy as I can be. I know I'll never be a size 5, and I honestly don't want that. I want to be comfortable in my own skin, even if that means being a double digit size.

Feel free to hold me accountable on whether or not I've been to the gym. Shooting for at the very minimal 4 days a week. So far this week: 3. I just started going back, don't hassle me until next week ;)

Sick Day

For the past week I have not been feeling well. I blamed it on the allergies, which is correct, except the allergies turned into a deathly cold that I couldn't get rid of. I gave in and made a visit to my favorite Dr. I was told that I have the following;Allergic Rhinitis. Asthma (I already knew this). Nasopharyngitis. and Conjunctivas. I was given a shot, an inhaler, nose spray, and eye drops. And an off work order till Thursday.

The best part about being sick, yes there is a best part, is that I get loved on by the amazing people around me. Brenda Harrell and the LSSC interns surprised me with my favorite flowers (Stargazer Lilly's) a card, and another favorite of mine, balloons. I am so blessed it's almost ridiculous, almost.

P.S. Don't be alarmed by the mask, its for your protection <3
