Workout Week 1 Accomplished!

I'm so happy with myself right now! I set out a goal to work out everyday this week and I did it! I just accomplished my last workout of the week. Now I'll give myself the weekend to let my body recover. I'm going to keep up with my healthy eating habits the rest of the weekend. Just because I'm not working out doesn't mean I don't get a break from eating healthy. 

This week has been a struggle but an exciting one as well.  I set out to do a lot of things and I'm slowly doing it!  Every other time I've said I'm going to lose weight and that I've had it being this heavy, it never seems to happen.  I guess it comes down to I wasn't ready to change all those times.  The light bulb has come on in my head finally and I really do feel like I'm on the right track.  I've been eating much healthier and I'm happy to report that I have only had two sodas this week.  That's a huge difference from drinking at least 48 oz. every day.  I've been pounding the water, eating vegetable, eating fish, and turkey burgers. I feel great! I don't feel all sluggish like I do when I eat crappy foods and lots of fast food.  I feel like I am regainin my energy.  I sleep better at night and wake up more refreshed.  I am starting to feel the happiness inside me come out to the surface! 

I took some really embarassing before shots yesterday.  It was depressing to look at them but it's also a great motivator.  I'll be posting them shortly and every two weeks I'm going to take an updated shot so maybe we can start seeing the changes!

There were tears shed, body aching, and many thoughts of wanting to just throw in the towel.  But I did it!  I didn't give up and I pushed through it!  Cue the motivational music!


  1. Oh! You should check out

  2. Very cool! Remember to give yourself a "Free Day" with your food. That doesn't mean go eat yourself into a coma. That mean have that thing you have been craving all week. If it was a burger, go get that burger and enjoy it. It helps you work towards something. Thinking... "I really want a bowl of ice cream right now, but it can wait till Saturday."

    You rock!

  3. Yeah I have been thinking about the free day with food. Honestly, the more I think about it, I haven't been craving any junk food. I've been craving healthy things. Vegetable, fruits, stuff like that. It's actually taken me by surprise. LOL. Thanks Chris for being there! You have really been keeping me motivated! Love you lots

  4. awesome blog! What kind of diet are you doing?

  5. I'm not doing a diet because they usually haven't worked for me. I'm just changing what I'm eating. Eating more fish, turkey, wheat bread, veggies, stuff like that. Lots of water, no soda, just cutting back portion size. I give myself a free day to eat a meal of my choice. I still eat things like chocolate and chips but keep them in moderation.
