Did better on Cardio Abs today, but Pure Cardio kicked my butt, didn't help that the baby was cranky and wanted to be held, but I always am able to use her, I just hold her and jog or sprint (not easy btw lol). I feel like I am not getting the workout I need still, I know my weight isn't going down, inches maybe but I really need to get my act together and start eating healthy, I am not doing bad, but I am not exactly doing good either. I can do this I know that I can, my goal is to be down to 200 by May, that's 40 pounds, I know that I can do this, Once I make this small goal I will make a new one, my all around goal is to be at my goal weight by this time next year. I know that I can do that, 10 pounds a month is easy actually less then 10 pounds. Thank you all for your encouragement, it helps more then you know!!

Got through another Cardio Power and Resistance today, oye that is rough, not sure how I can possibly make it through these workouts but man it feels SOOOO good to get them done. Today was much easier then Tuesdays. I was able to get through most of it, the jumping still is too much though, ugh it gets so frustrating when you can't do it all. Talked (kind of) to a good friend yesterday and we have made a goal to get together and run a marathon in a few years (give us time to save money and get in shape :P) I am really excited about this goal, and I can't wait to finally run that marathon!! Here is to another great workout, and another great day!!!

Pure Cardio and Cardio Abs, feeling a bit discouraged today, I know that I am way more overweight then the people that are on the DVDs but I still get so discouraged when they are keeping up with Shaun T and I have to stop to breath (or deal with the baby). I love the workouts, because they kick my butt, and motivate me. I am gonna be honest I am super nervous about month 2, that is gonna KILL me, but I know it will do me some good. I can do this, I just have to remember the end result is going to be a more smoking me, and then when Turbo Fire starts, I am really getting excited about Turbo Fire. Insanity is awesome, but I always feel like I am only doing half of it because I have to improvise (not that I wont for Turbo Fire but it looks more fun right now lol). Today was rough, but I still feel great, nothing like a good workout to help you through your long days!! As Shaun T would say, DIG DEEPER!!!

Well I made it through another Pure Cardio and Cardio Abs, OUCH, Refusing to weigh myself for another two weeks, then I will weigh and tape myself to see if I have lost weight and inches. I know I have because my clothes are getting loose!! It isn't as easy as you would think working out and playing mommy, but I keep reminding myself that my kids are the reason I have to do this. I have to show them that health is more important then anything and in order to be healthy we have to eat healthy and exercise. I got today, now on to tomorrow!!

So I figured I would start by explaining me, and how my journey of weight gain then weight loss started. So first I married my husband in 2001, and in 2003 we found our we where expecting our first child. At the time I weighed in around 160-165 lbs. When our son was born in 2004, I was at 250 pounds, I had gained 90 pounds during my pregnancy. Between stress, losing a job, not having my family and friends near, it was hard, stressful, and I ate my pregnancy away, only not with fruit and veggies, more like with Taco Johns, and some yummy Mexican food. Unfortunately I barely went down, after he was born. By the time he was two I had gone down to 230 lbs (which for me was exciting). But it stopped and my husband left for a year, and I gained. By 2009 I weighed in at 291 pounds. It was depressing, I couldn't see how my husband could look at me and still be in love, I was ugly and all I wanted to do was eat my life away. I made the decision to have gastric bypass surgery. I was tired of trying diet and diet and not losing a thing. So in March of 2010 I went in at 730 am to have my surgery. A little history lesson, I was told that I would never be able to have anymore kids, which is why we opted for the gastric bypass. Well I was informed that I could not have the surgery anymore, at least not for another year or and some change. I was confused at that point, and down right PISSED OFF. Who are you to tell me I can't have this surgery, I worked so hard and did everything and then some I was supposed to do. I lost 14 pounds I was down to 277 I was ready to be 140 again. (which by the way would be less then when I met my husband). Well it turned out I was pregnant so obviously can't have the surgery. So a few months later my second child was born. and I was a LARGE 301. At that point I was beyond upset with myself. Granted I only gained 24 pounds with my second but I was over 300 pounds. By June of 2011 I was down to 255, which was amazing because I was almost at the same weight I was when I got pregnant with my first child. I was SUPER happy about that, I was on the right path, I decided that no surgery was going to happen I was going to do this the right way for me, which was losing weight by eating healthy and working out. Well here I am on my journey, I am down to 240, and I started doing the Insanity workout on January 9, 2012. WOW it is not easy, especially when you are 100 pounds overweight, but you know what I got this. This is my journey through hard work, hard exercise, and healthy eating, DIG DEEPER as Shaun T would say!!
