January 30th, 2010

Missed it by 1 minute!
I realized I hadn't put up the photos from today yet at 11:59pm... I clearly look exhausted, I need to wash my hair and I'm breaking out..other than that I'm as sexy as all get out!

So this is my online store. I've been making headbands and barrettes and hair clips and they are rather funky fresh if I do say so myself!
Go and check them out!

Random Thought

So I have two sports bras for boot camp. One I got right after I started and realized that I'd have to jog and the other one came super highly recommended from a pal.
I'm not small chested. I've got mega boobage going on here and I need all the support I can get.
Jumping jacks and jumping squats while I love them and how they kick my ass each time we do them in class they are the things I dread simply because of how my mammary glands flip and flop like fish out of water each time I jump.
Thank GOD I'm not a self conscious kinda gal or I'd never get the workouts done.
I need a new industrial strength workout bra because flip floppin boobs HURT.
Any recommendations?

New Tattoo

So my new goal is that when I lose 50 pounds I'm getting a new tattoo. Since I lost my best friend of 30 years in 2007 I've wanted a dedication tattoo to her.
When I hit 150 pounds I'm getting that damn tattoo!

I missed posting yesterday because...I have no real excuse why. I forgot is why. Back on track today!
Two photos taken after boot camp this morning.

January 23rd, 2010

So all week long my scale has read 186 which I couldn't understand because there is no WAY I've gained three or more pounds in a short period of time. I've been watching what I eat like a hawk and today it read 182. I'm still not sure it's right but at least the numbers are headed in the right direction!!!

Bad Ass...

January 22nd, 2010

Today I have an in school birthday party for my oldest son. I'm bringing the cupcakes. I threw on some makeup to make myself slightly presentable.
Both these photos have that "deer in a headlight" thing going on. Whatever, these ain't for Vogue baby...

I went back through this blog and found a post where my goal was to be at my goal weight of 110 pounds by today.
Clearly that hasn't happened.
You know what though? It's okay. I'm okay with it because I'm not unhappy with my body or my curves or my shape.
I'm sexy as hell, I have a husband who loves me and still thinks I'm super hot. I have two children who tell me I'm beautiful and guys still check me out on the street.
The point of taking this weight off was never because of body image. It was for health reasons and I'm working towards my goal and I'm getting fit and I'm getting healthy. I may never be itty bitty thin and that's fine with me.
I love me no matter what the shape or size.

Today I chaperoned a class trip for my little guy's class. So I didn't frighten the horses and women I threw on a little under eye concealer and Mascara...
I missed boot camp this morning which I HATE doing but I did run up the three flights of stairs at pickup today at school. I wasn't nearly as winded at the top as I would have been a year ago.
Still no change on the scale...

Tuesday, January 19, 2010

I took these this morning right after I got home from Boot Camp. We did nothing but cardio today and I look like a sweaty lobster. Those jump squats and mountain climbers are going to kill me...

Back to daily photos

Time to get serious and back into this daily photo thang...

Videos of me in Boot Camp

I'm loving Boot Camp and I'm super proud of how strong I feel and how much more I can do with each class I attend. All this week I did work with a 20 pound Kettlebell and I love it!
David has been taking videos of the class. Here are the ones I'm in. Can't miss me...I'm the only fat chick...

He also asked me to do some testimonial videos for him

Swimming Lessons

First off let me tell you that I HATE my scale and I'm going to throw it out the window.
The weight is never the same twice even when I step off and then right back on.
On Monday David is going to bring a scale to boot camp with him so I'll start with his scale and count whatever it reads as my true weight. Even if I hate what it's telling me.
We will weigh ourselves every Monday and keep the results as our own to track on our own.

Tomorrow my boys start swimming lessons. This means I have to put on a bathing suit. I thought it would be a good place and a good time to take a photo of myself in a suit and I'll do it each week and hopefully we will be able to see a change in my body over the next 9 weeks!

I got a new scale and according to it though I've been working out at least three days a week (usually 4!) I haven't lost a single pound. In fact I've GAINED weight.
Is it fat? Is it muscle? I've heard muscle weighs more than fat so is that what's going on here?
I have an appointment to see my Dr. next month so hopefully I can discuss it with him.
I'd also like to get myself back on Ritalin. Both for my scattered thoughts and for the appetite suppressant side effect.
The good news is I got a bike and as soon as the weather cracks 40 degrees I'm going to take her out for a spin. It's my hope that I can ride every day at least 4 miles and see if that combined with the boot camp and the Ritalin I can get this weight moving off my body again!
