Long Time For Shame

I know it has been to long since I have posted. I have been so busy with school, the kids, the husband, getting healthy, and oh yes WORKING OUT. I am happy to report that I have made it through my first round (and then some) of Turbo Fire. August 9, 2012 I was 272 pounds when I started. Today December 17, 2012 I am 223 pounds. HOLY CRAP right?! I have had a big change in not only my thinking but also my eating, and exercise. It has been a great change and I love what I am doing and who I am becoming. None of my clothes fit, well they do but I am swimming in them. My goal is to be 200 by March and 180 by July (or below, I would happily take below :P). So Nov 21, 2010 I was 301 pounds 2 years later I am 78 pounds lighter. DANG that is a lot of weight, and it is just going to keep going up (the amount lost that is). It has been such a tough road for me, but I have done it and I continue to do it. Nothing special, just eating right and working out. I have even started running, well jogging but hey 30 minutes of jogging is a HUGE thing for me. I owe it all to my husband and kids, and an amazing friend Andrea, she has really pushed me and been my cheerleader. Not to mention my workout buddy the past few months. I know I could not have done it without her support and I will forever be thankful. So when you are feeling down or don't think you can do it, find someone who will be there to motivate you, to encourage you, maybe even workout with you. It takes one person to be your anchor, but it takes you to keep going an push yourself. Only you can accomplish it no one else can, and by everything in me I WILL and AM accomplishing it!! Sexy body here I come!!

Turbo Fire HERE I come!!

Ok I know it has been a long time since I posted, a month wow. Well it has been crazy here so sitting down to post just hasn't been top priority. You will be happy to know that I have stuck to my ChaLEAN  Extreme program, I love it. i really just love everything Chalene she is truly motivating. However, with all the weight lifting I am toning and bulking up but not actually losing any fat, so all my sexiness is hidden. So I have decided (with a little push from the husband) to start Turbo Fire, I am going to ease my way into it though and start with the Prep Schedule first, then once I have finished that (its two months long) I will go head first into Turbo Fire. I am so excited I have been wanting to do Turbo Fire for awhile. I will post once I start (I will be starting tomorrow so hopefully I will be able to get on and post tomorrow how I did on day one.) Keep chugging along, if I can do this you can this. Remember exercise is awesome but without good healthy meals exercise is pointless. That is honestly my biggest issue right now, eating right, I don't horrible but my 5-6 meals a day every 2-3 hours seems to be harder then I thought without the meals just set up for me. So I am devising a plan that will help me with it. Wish me luck with that one :P

Day 36 ChaLEAN Extreme

Did Day 36 of ChaLEAN Extreme, I know I have been MIA lately, a lot has been going on with school and other things, but I am still working out. I LOVE month 2 of this program, I will admit with all the stresses of life right now and all the health problems, I am not losing weight nor am I losing inches, but I still feel amazing after my workouts, and I will not let anything hinder that. Once I get everything back in order and I start losing again, it is going to drop off like a bad habit, why you ask, well that is simple, its because I didn't give up today, or tomorrow, because I kept going even though I knew I was going to not lose a thing for a little bit. I got this and I am not going to let anything get in my way. No worries here, I am gonna be dead sexy next year you just wait!! I hope you guys aren't giving up!!

Day 15 of ChaLEAN Extreme

YAY I have made it to week 3 of ChaLEAN Extreme, without getting sick, woohoo. I know sad but hey I will take what I can get. I haven't lost any weight or inches, but I haven't been watching what I eat either, I really need to do that, so starting this week I am focusing less on the workout (still doing it though) and more on eating right, because you cannot do one without the other and get results. My goal is to lose 10 pounds in April, I know I can and WILL do it (the more the merrier of course). I have really been struggling lately with my weight, I keep gaining, and I am not eating horrible, I still eat decent, no junk foods, sodas, etc. but for some reason I am gaining, it is really stressful, I have a lot of emotional things going on, and my husband is being amazing and so supportive, I know I can do this.

My first week back YAY

So I did my third workout for the week this morning, man it was a sweaty but great workout. I feel sooo good after my workouts. I was messing around with my husband and apparently flexed my arms, he was amazed (now if the bottom half of my upper arms would just disappear I would be happy, these bingo wings are really nasty). I can't wait for tomorrow. Hope you are all getting your workouts in and pressing play on something, or going to the gym, taking a nice walk on the beach, or around the park. Anything is better then nothing, and as a friend reminded me today, its NEVER TO LATE to start working out!! Keep Pushing!!

Being sick stinks

So I am back to not working out, I am pretty sick, bronchitis, and don't have much energy at all. So I have had to stop working out, which really upsets me because I feel like I have gained about 20 pounds this week. I know I haven't but still. I will be starting ChaLEAN Extreme over again, mainly because I was only on week 2 and because all my progress is gone from being sick, so I am going to go even harder when I start up again, which will hopefully be in a few days!! I got this, and I know I can do it, I am going to have that sexy dress by next year, and wear that cute bikini if it kills me :P Eat Healthy and stay active everyone!!

Doing Great

I know its been a few days, but I have been busy with school, the kids, and my cranky teething daughter. Workouts are still going and I love it. I didn't think I would ever want to workout again, but man they feel great. My husband is excited too, he says once I start running he will have a running partner which he is excited about (not sure how I feel about that yet, he runs like 5 plus miles a day lol). But for now ChaLEAN Extreme is my workout and I LOVE IT, I haven't lost any weight (I have gained a few pounds which is really frustrating) but I know I am toning at least underneath all this fat!! I have a long way to go, but I can't wait to finally look the way I want!! LETS DO IT!!
