one girl’s journey to her destiny

I am in week 4 of ww points plus and i really love the program i have lost about 8 lbs. i am still not working out but i my goal is to try in the morning. I realize that I need to wake up at 6am and workout so I can make sure I get the workout in. With my crazy work schedule I won’t be successful if I try to work in the evenings. I cant cram anything else into the few hours I have after work.

my job is out of control crazy hectic and i have gained a great deal of weight trying to make quotas. i really love my  job but sometimes i wonder if the stress is worth it. i plan to keep at it and attempt to make the best of a really crazy situation.

in other news i have no romantic and dating life and i am okay with that. i really want to focus on myself for a while. although i have someone i would LOVE to be in a relationship with im okay that its not gong in that direction right now.

day 3 is here and gone and i am so proud of myself. lunch is ready, kitchen is clean, laundry is done and i worked out yesterday and today! my trainer is kicking my butt! i need to try to eat more calories even though i am detoxing. im hovering at about 1200 which is dangerously low. i need to be at about 1600 per the daily plate. but eating all veggies and no meat requires a LOT of eating to eat 500 more calories or so. I am going to figure it out though. so glad the weather is nice we went outside for a cardio warm up and then did abs inside and i was pouring sweat.

i feel better about me and am focused im a third done and have 6 more days of this hard part to go :-)

215.8

mood: optimistic

216 pounds; mood: busy

been eating lots of veggies and beans and fruit. took my amazing grass this morning and im feeling pretty good. im also using this detox kit from trader joe’s maybe i can be at 206 by day 9 that would feel awesome to be back close to the 190’s. i really dont know how i got this big but i hate it. i dont like to look in the mirror i def dont want to be photographed. i just want to stay in until i am smaller. i feel so unpretty.

today i do feel better because i am doing something to turn this around. instead of chinese twice a week and a cheeseburger everyday and two or three sodas a day and ice cream and shakes daily. i have really fallen off the bandwagon and i am back on. i hate feeling this way.

my bday is april 15th. i want to be at 200 by then. i think i can do it if i am really disciplined. let the games begin.

going to bed 6am spin class is calling.

ive been working with a trainer and it has helped tremendously i know i will be in the 180’s in no time! if i could just harness my eating on weekends and during TOM. omg i have the worst cravings. but its about over now so i should be okay.

i have a new passion SPINNING!!! you cant get me off that bike! sexy legs and butt you know im game. i also have been spending plenty time on the stairmill i will be in a bikini in no time. its funny because most people arent fond of their midsections and while mine needs work. i can deal with my waist its these big huge grandma thighs and jiggly butt that i want to tone and shape. i definitely get my ab work in though because i do have a curvy shape and i know that helps me look smaller. my waist is very small in comparison to the rest of me but def needs work! if i felt comfortable with my thighs and butt and my waist gets a little smaller i would be in a bikini quick!

sooo i need to figure some ways to make sure i dont eat crap on the weekends and undo all my hard work. hmmm i’ll get back to u

well school is officially over and after 9 years of off and on school, clinical depression, MRSA twice, chronic ear and sinus infections,two leaky apartments, one crazy downstairs neighbor, a number of bad choices, a few bad relationships and broken hearts i am officially a college graduate! wow if i aint a survivor i dont know one! so at this point i just want to finish my weight loss journey and begin making plans to apply for grad school.

so this summer i plan to work a little, work out a lot and put a dent in this epic mess at my moms house. i have to do enough to leave in time for school to start in august. otherwise i will be stuck here til december and i dont think i will make it lol i am soooo used to being on my own and all of my friends are in stl. ive been back for a couple of weeks and i remember why i was so eager to leave.

anywho i have bronchitis and i am impatiently waiting to be well again so i can begin my personal bootcamp i know i can get these last 40 pound off i just have to do it.
