Tonights Workout

The workout of the night was:

I swear Jillian be trying to kill somebody. Got me doing all these squats with weights and stuff. The funny thing is I had just started it and before I knew it the 30 minutes was over. That was a first! Normally Im watching the clock waiting for it to be over. I hope I aint sore in the morning.

SCC Week 9 Goals

Im looking forward to getting back into focusing on my goals for the week. Ready to really dedicate myself to my weight loss goals. My goals for Week 9 are the following:

-Focus on serving sizes
-Continue with no soda
-Go to the gym 2x this week
-Blog at least 2x this week
-Workout for a total of 150 minutes this week

Week 9 Mini Challenge: Up your exercise minutes- Im trying for 150 minutes this week. That is a big increase for me

I'm Still Here!


I kinda been MIA for pretty much all of February. That was not suppose to had happen but I guess it just slipped my mind to update my blog. But that is in the past and Im looking to the future.

So since we are in lent I have decided to give up:
-20 pounds

The soda thing was easy for me throughout the work week but then the weekend comes around. I always have a soda on the weekend and my cravings hit big time. I found myself needing a sorta of sweet substitute for my soda so now I have been drinking sweet tea.

I went to the gym for the first time since last year. I only did 30 minutes on the treadmill but it felt really good to be doing something active. I do plan on going back, maybe staying for a hour next time.

While Im doing the Spring Chick Challenge, I have also decided to take on another challenge that I am doing for myself (I got the idea from somebody elses blog). I am doing a 100 days to Memorial Day challenge, which to some people is the unofficial start to summer. I have alot of stuff planned for this summer so looking good is essential. Im tired of spending summer after summer not being able to find anything cute to wear like all my friends. I always picture myself being in a two piece of the beach so I plan on making that dream a reality this year. I started this challenge on February 18th so right now Im on Day 9 of 100.

This is a long post obviously since Ive been gone for so long. Im glad to be back and I hope that I will be blogging a lil more regularly.

Spring Chick Update Week 5

Five weeks into the challenge and where do I stand? The same place I did on Week #1

Best moment? Fighting my daily urges to go get soda. I normally cave in and do it but not this time
Not so great moment? I ate an entire bag of Smartfood White Cheddar Popcorn in one setting? It was bad but tasted so good
Any funny stories? Nope
Are you were you hoped you would be in this journey? Honestly no Im not. I expected to be 10 pounds lighter right now. I think I have the food part down. Its just the exercise part I need to focus more on
Would you like a buddy for the last 6 weeks of the challenge? Sure a buddy couldnt hurt!
Anybody wanna chat online sometime? Im always online so thats cool

Week 5 Goals Review
  • Gym: Wednesday and Thursday-FAIL
  • Eat out one meal for the week: Choice between Breakfast, Lunch, or Dinner- I ate out Monday and Tuesday for Dinner and Breakfast and then after that I didnt eat out so That is a PASS to me
  • Take my vitamins every day including the weekends PASS
  • Drink 64+ ounces of water a day PASS
