Friday Weigh in...

Hey all... Its Friday and I should have weighed in this morning... But I didn't. I'm still sick...

Truth is... Today I don't care.

I got up and I wanted to get to work as fast as I could so I could get my work done and get home. Last night I went to bed at 7 pm and I did not wake up until 7 am this morning. My nose is a faucet... and the sinus pressure in my head is killing me. Slight fever.

Ok.. so I am a little dramatic when I get sick and all of my self control goes out the window. So I eat like crap.. which makes me feel even more yucky. Then I eat more crap cause I feel yucky... which makes me feel worse.  Essentially.. I just wallow in my sickness. :)

I am hoping to feel enough better by tomorrow that I can go and run for a little while. We will see....

Here is a picture of sick little me...   My eyes are glazed over.. my nose red... and WOW.. my mirror is dirty... :)

But here I am. In all my sick glory. 

Next week will be better. I will be feeling better and I will be back to kicking butt and taking names. :)

Weigh in Friday

So...  On the 14th of January I started over and started working out and eating right. I was 203.2 pounds. Today I am:

So I am down... 5.2 POUNDS in two weeks! I am so excited. What a great start!!!

What have I been doing to lose that weight...  Using my start charge of course! I have been lifting weights at the gym and I have been doing the c25k training program. But I am using it for interval and speed training. So during the run portion I usually run about 7.5 mph and during the walk period I try and go 5 mph. Its killer tough! But I am getting faster.

I also designed a shirt. I designed them on VistaPrint.

I love it!!!!  It describes me perfectly! And probably most of you.

Hope you guys all have a great weekend and Stay strong!! We can do this!

Weight Loss Star Chart

In my last post I promised you that I would post the start chart that I made so I could be accountable for the choices I am making. And to keep me incentavised. Well.. here it is.

The pink spaces are mandatory. The white spaces are optional. If you miss a pink spot you are responsible to make up for it with one of the white spots. If you miss more spots than you can make up.. then you do not get a prize. :( womp womp. 

Day one has been pretty rough so far. I want a sugary snack so bad I could punch a puppy. However, I am resisting because I know it will get harder to resist through out the week and I only have 500 sugar calories per week.  But I can say that its working. I want to get all of my stars!

If any of you want a copy of this chart, let me know and I will post the actual JPEG that I created so you can download it.

In other news... I got my hair did. :) Just added in some highlights... but I LOVE it. Its nice to change it up from time to time.

Thats all I have for you today.. but remember... DEMAND MORE OF YOURSELF! Because you are worth it!

Being accountable.... :(

So.. its time I am accountable to everyone. Its time I explain why I have been avoiding writing anything about weight loss....

I lost my mojo. I lost my drive. I lost my willpower. I ate like a crazy woman... and I am paying for it now.

My grand finale weight after November and December is 203.2. YIKES!!!  Its embarrassing! and it means that I have to start over.

But do you know what else this means.... It means that I am HUMAN! I made some mistakes. I fell down. However... I am getting back up and I am using my mistakes to push me in the right directions. And as long as I never give up.. then I never will fail.

So.. what are my goals and plans for the future...   
  • I want to lose 50 lbs this year. That will put me around 150 and that would be AMAZING!!! 
  • I want to beat my fastest half marathon time. 
  • I want to start training for a full marathon.  .
  • I want to become strong and look very toned

How am I going to obtain those goals:

Me and my friend Ashley are starting out slowly and we are making ourselves a daily to do and daily not to do list. Here is what it includes:
  • No eating after 7 pm
  • Drink 100 oz of water a day
  • Only 1 cheat meal a week
  • 500 calories of Sugary yummyness a week
  • Lift/cross train 4 times a week
  • Run three times a week, and push ourselves to run faster
  • Overall Healthy choices and watching what we eat
If we can do all of that for the rest of January, then we get to go get a pedicure. If we make it all the way to the end of February, then we get to go buy a new pair of pants.

I will post a picture of my star chart when I have it built!!  

Why to I want to hit those goals: 
  • So I can buy and wear cute clothes. Right now, I never buy cute clothes.. because they either do not look good on me, or I do not want to spend money on clothes when I plan on getting smaller soon. 
  • I want to boost my self esteem. 
  • I want to love myself more. 
  • I want people to look at me and think I am athletic. Right now, people see me and they would have no idea that I can go and run, and I can lift weights with the best of them. 
  • I want to look like the person that I feel like I am on the inside. 
  • I want to treat myself better. 
Can I just say how excited I am to get the ball rolling. To have a goal and to have the actions in place to hit that goal. And to have a buddy/friend that will help me make it. As she inspires me to get fit and skinny, I hope to inspire her to become a runner.

Here is to another new start. :)
