ha, the hubby’s always tellin me he’s gonna buy me one once i get down to that 150 goal i’ve been trying for, for the past year. and now that it’s so close in sight i find myself lagging even more. :) ironic i guess, as we work so hard to get to a goal & mentally u c that its just around the corner & i can’t beat myself up enough to get there…jeez to think it’s less than 20 lbs away…if i work real hard i know i can drop it before the family trip last week of july. it’d be awesome to get there before fourth of July, but don’t want to reach for the stars just yet as i know i’m in a “rut”

so awesome personal news! i got a call from Nike on Friday, they want me back! totally excited to be working there again, just in time for summer. and its nothing more but motivation as i’m selling sports attire and shoes and the like to women who adore exercise (particularly running). i’m just a bit nervous being able to incorporate working, summer school, my personal life & exercise, but i guess i gotta find a way to make it all part of a “regular” day. if its nothing out of the ordinary, then it shouldn’t be hard right? :/

Hope all you chicks had an awesome weekend with family and friends, can’t wait to check in. :hugs:

P.S. Thanks inkheart for the note about the website, i changed it, very simple w/ur instructions..thx again! :)

so i only made it half way, and no one’s fault but my own. i was having too much fun for my only week off from school. :) and i have no regrets as it was filled w/family, friends and lots of lovin from the hubby. :) here’s to a new goal w/ a new week ahead….

Half way to the goal…

so i pretty much have given up on the 30 lb goal in 3 months, as the deadline is June 1st, I made it almost half way, started at 190 and as of last WI I was at 176. I’m hoping by next WI (Sunday) i’ll be down another 2 lbs, but we’ll see as i’m already half way through my “summer vacation” and only worked out on Saturday doing 1800 yrd swim. We did go down to H.B today to ride our bikes along PCH to Balboa pier. it was beautiful and so much fun. :) i’m not sure how much calories were burned if anything at all, but it was fun nonetheless.

May 25-May 31

so this weeks goal is another steady 2 lbs, although i’d love double since its my week of “summer vacation” before summer school starts, i’m going to be realistic, because vacation can mean lazy or it can mean hardwork and i haven’t decided in which i’m settling for yet. :)

WI May 24

so this was already set last week during finals and never posted, but i had it on my calendar, so the goal was 177 from 179, finally dropping those measily 2 lbs i’ve been trying to do and i did it! i thought it was mainly from stress, so we’ll have to wait and see with the week off here. :)

WI May 17

so i completely got sidetracked with prepping for finals and forgot to note my WI i didn’t get anywhere, but i’m taking the no gain no loss as amazing considering i normally binge really bad with finals. so yay. :)


Finals Schminals…

Posted by gottaloose4 on May 15th, 2009 |Filed Under 2 months til summer | 10693 Comments

its so hard to conjure up some energy this week with finals around the corner. i’ve had the hardest time sleeping at night worrying and thinking about concepts and all the chapters i need to review for the seventeen units i’m carrying this semester. and the stress in prepping for my first summer school classes. :sighs: all that and no energy or time made to workout. i haven’t gone AT ALL this week and am a bit disappointed in myself for it. i’m suppose to run tonight with the hubby. he’s still sleeping (he works graveyard) but should be waking up in about 30 minutes. totally dreading the run, but know its waaaaay overdue. i’m hoping i’ll still see some drop in the weight. i highly doubt it considering i’ve been snacking a lot this week with the stress of finals and the lack of time i have in preparing foods. seems like i’m on the boarder line in all my classes to either increase an entire grade or drop low into a lower grade. so i hate being on that border because so much is at stake. WI is Sunday, and i’m prayin for the best. :) hope ya’ll are doing well! happy friday!

it only takes that one restaurant meal…

doesn’t it absolutely suck to have such an amazing WI or workout week, to go and eat some food at a restaurant, not feel as though you went completely out of hand, but feel so though you did? I mean i feel so though i’ve gained four lbs just eating a steak dinner with the family for mother’s day tonight and i hate this feeling. :sighs: completely disappointing considering i held myself back…well i guess that means just one thing…time to kick more butt this week, week before finals, might i just through that out there!

had a great weekend, had an awesome swim at the gym friday afternoon, 1700 yds, had taco lunch with the hubby rented movies (Lars and the Real Girl, Notorious, My Best Friend’s Girl and Last Chance Harvey) We haven’t watched the last two yet, since we’ve been out of the house all day. woke up at 5a to go to his mom’s to cook, we made tortas, who knew that boiling the beef would take four hours. :) hung out there, played with the kids and mingled. went to my parents, hung out with them for a while before heading to the restaurant for dinner. really nice…i wanted to upload a pic for you guys but can’t remember how to do them. i have those pics on the “pics of progress” page but can’t remember what i did to get there. ha. :) help please?

anyway i really should be getting back to studying, hope all you mommys had an awesome day today with your children and family! know that you are appreciated all over the world for all the wonderful things you do! :hugs:
