Week Four

Mentally focusing on only losing the last 5 lbs. and boy I'm getting all kinds of crazy!!! Week four is my Biggest Loser last chance workout. I'm sweatin' bullets because I really want to lose 5lbs. to pass this month's challenge! Grrrr!


I can feel the little excuses wanting to interfere with what I'm trying to accomplish! It's frustrating. I know I keep bringing it up, but I'm trying to beat my own negativity!

This is my only goal I'm focusing on this last week!!!

I can do it.

I can do it.

I can do it.

Self-Sabotage VS. Success

I'm 5lbs. away from completing my January 10 lb. loss! A part of me feels like I am going to fail! Looking back, I always seem to fail. I sel- sabotage me! Why do I keep doing that to myself?

I have just re-read my words and I realize I am preparing myself to fail and letting anyone else reading that I'm planning to fail!


I set a goal and I'm going to do my best to get it done!

I'm going to set myself up for SUCCESS! You watch me conquer my goal! I'm determined to get that scale moving and feel improvements in my body! THIS TIME I'M MORE THAN READY!

Week Three

Week three is getting difficult. After having a wild 10 year old birthday slumber party with many goodies this past Saturday for my daughter. I'm trying to recover and keep myself motivated!

Drinking less soda, in fact I have down sized from large to small and not everyday! A small step, but I'm heading in the right direction. Keeping my 10 pound goal in mind and ready to see that scale head in the right DOWN direction.

Monday I had my first carb-free supper. Meatloaf and lots and lots of veggies. I struggled about 30 minutes afterwards; with my stomach growling like I hadn't eaten, but I refused to go back into the kitchen. There was no point in tempting or taunting myself into failing. I really missed the mashed potatoes. I don't know if it was mind over matter or I just have instilled bad food habits; like an addiction. Tuesday, I had a few tortilla chips with my taco salad. I don't know if eating a few or no carbs is a benefit to me. Tonight I plan on eating light since I had a big lunch, pizza which I know is not good for me. I felt tired, bloated and plain miserable.

I know I NEED to eat breakfast. I feel better and I feel like I have so much energy and I'm not trying to eat whatever I can get my hands on.

I woke up this morning and did a 4 minute workout. I know what you might be thinking, 4 minute workout... easy as pie... not this 4 minute workout. It was hard and I was slow, but when I was done, my body didn't ache anymore.

I'm adding more to my regimen, but trying to keep my head above water. Focusing, it's always been a problem. I start off strong then I slowly give myself excuses to binge here; just a little and of course, a little can mean forgetting everything I'm striving for to succeed.

Week Two

This week's goal is to eat smaller portions at dinner. Drinking water is still number one priority! Doing so much better, but I'm thinking I may be adding fruit to flavor my water.

I'm going to add a monthly goal and although this goal seems so unreachable, it's simple. January goal is to lose a whopping 10 lbs.

For me this feels like a huge struggle for a girl who can't seem to move past the 260's. If I do, my scale moves right back! I'm feeling strongly about my January goal! I'm tired of feeling like I won't succeed! I almost feel like I deliberately try my best to sabotage my success! Who does that and why? I have yet to figure this out and push past my self-sabotage! Need the encouragement! Need the strength! Need the "I can" attitude!

Week One

This week I have re-introduced my best friend... WATER. So far I'm drinking water at a snail slow pace. During the holidays I had been chugging soda like water and now I am paying the price. 

I keep reminding myself .... WATER IS GOOD FOR ME! It's soooooo hard. I don't remember it being so hard to drink water.

My confession for this week is I'm still drinking soda! Gasp! Shame on me, but I have limited myself to drinking just one 12 ounce a day. And that's still too much. I'm weaning myself away from soda and doing my best to get that water inside me!

Water Good! Soda Bad!

I'll get this figured out... eventually!

New Year Bang

Heading into the New Year with a bang!!!

What I really mean is that I usually HATE making resolutions for the next year... BUT,
 this year I decided to jump right along with other resolution makers.

Resolution Number ONE: Get organized... I have always been unprepared or scattered brain, called it what you will, but this is necessary for me!

Resolution Number TWO: Get fit... I want to see pounds drop! I want to see a new me in the mirror in 2013!

Resolution Number THREE: Cook Dinner at home at least five days out of the week.

Those are my main New Year resolutions for 2012! I want to be able to stand strong, feel confident and have the energy to do anything! Wish me luck!
