I've lost 185lbs, and then gained some back.
But I'm kicking ass and striving for my ultimate goal: A 200 lb loss.
Working all mental, physical and emotional aspects of being healthy, happy and fit. You'll see my ups and downs here, because I'm proud to be imperfect!

I’m going into another 12 hr work day and then topping it off with choir rehearsal tonight. I won’t see my babies till I creep into their room when I get home at 9:30 and kiss their sleeping heads. *sigh*. It’s worth it – right? Sometimes I don’t know.
Let me, once again, make clear – I am GRATEFUL for my job, and for the overtime. We really need the funds. It’s only temporary, so we need to take advantage!
Yup, this was yesterday. By the time I got home, and made my yummy dinner of salad and chicken breast – it was too late to be hungry for a snack, so my stats dropped quite a bit. Still impressive protein for it, though!
Group Power last night was great. Once again, I tried to push myself with weights. However, I’m still a little confused in this realm. When I am working at Bodyology, and I know I am only doing a move for 40-60 seconds, I can load up and go heavy. With this class, you are working one group of muscles continuously for 4-5 minutes. I don’t want to go so heavy that I can’t make it, but I don’t want to go so light that I feel like I could have done more. Still playing around with this.
I am SO glad I decided to for-go some overtime to get to the class. I need that balance. Tomorrow night is no OT, so I am thinking going in for some cardio and the core class I ended up in last week (thinking it was step – duh! But it was a good mistake!)
Yes, this is including dinner – and including too much fruit. However, fruit and veggies are the most portable thing to have on hand right now, and since I won’t be home till 9:30 – it’s all I’ve got on the run. Tomorrow – less fruit (=less sugar)
If I get hungry, I will eat something else. If not, hey, the calories stay low.
I walked into the office this morning and was confronted with a huge tray of fudge brownies. *sigh*. I told my hubby and this was his reaction:
“I think you should yell “SO UNFAIR!!! DEATH TO THE INFADELS!!! I KEEL YOU!!!” and throw the plate against the wall.”
I love him. This is obviously the perfect reaction – even worthy of Norma!!!
I’m sure you have heard how damn cold it is around here already, so I will leave you with this:
