    Another regular day...

    Nothing really exciting has been happening lately I did my weight and measure for my 60days in my plan and so far I have lost around 11inches and 12.4lbs. I got on the scale this morning even though I wasn't supposed to but when I see it there it's calling my name!! When I stepped on it and saw 183 I was shocked it's funny what following an eating plan with no cheat days and working out the days your supposed to without skipping will do for you!! I still have another 30days of power 90. I went back and have counted how many days I have skipped through the last 60days, I have a calendar to keep track and I have skipped 13days thats 21% of my workout!!! So I'm going to add 13more workouts at the end of the full 90days so I really do what I'm supposed to do and get the right results, then I'm going to be doing Slim in 6 also offered from Beachbody.

    At my work they had an employee appreciation day and gave us tshirts to wear. On the day they handed them out I was off so when I came back my only options were size small or large. That made me a little nervous since the larges are pretty huge but I didn't think a small would do either but I took them both to see what happens. So I got up and put on the small and it fit!! I haven't worn a size small anything in forever! Here is a pic.
    I'm not angry I promise :-)
     Pretty good huh! lol I feel like I'm tooting my own horn but it was an awesome nsv!!! But here comes the weekend the time when I always seem to fall off the workout and eating good bandwagon. Wish me luck this weekend and I hope all my readers have an awesome, exercise, good eating, fun filled weekend!!!

      Mini Challenge

      So my hubby and I decided to have a mini "challenge" together. As some of my longer readers may know he wants to bulk up and put on pounds. (Must be nice to be a guy and want to put on weight) So yesterday he came up to me and told me that he wanted to be at 160lbs by next Saturday (not this week) random day I know, he weighed in this morning at 154.6lbs. I told him ok well I want to be at least 181.5 by then so lets see who wins : ) We are not going to weigh ourselves at all until Monday for my blog weigh in, then again on next Saturday. I'm sure I'll win but we haven't chose a reward yet any ideas : )

      Another thing, I decided to look up what my BMI was this morning and saw that I'm officially out of the "Obese" category. Although I never thought that I would be considered obese it makes me happy to see that. I can't wait to be in the "normal" category! According to my plan only 7 more months to go. That seems like forever!!! I'm making an appointment to go get my facial for my 10Lb reward. I'm officially at that point since I have weighed under it more then a few days in a row. I know I previously said I was at the 10lb mark but the following week weigh in it was a little above so I wasn't going to reward myself unless I was truly there.

      I got up at 6 this morning and worked out since I have evening plans to get a pedi with my mom and I didn't want to skip out. I didn't do the kickboxing class last night. I was going to go immediately after school but my class was canceled so while I was waiting for my hubby to get out of class I did my whole workout I would of have done normally for that day, so we just hung out the rest of the night which was nice. I'm going to try to catch up on my 30days of truths again when I get some time I suck at keeping up with that. Hope everyone has a good day!!!

        Another week another weigh in!

        So today is another weigh in... I must admit when I woke up this morning I was a little nervous about what I would see on the scale. I haven't seemed to be able to break past the 186 mark but I feel I have been working hard and hoped I had something to show for it. I got on and saw 183flash by and got super excited but it stopped at 184.8 still awesome!!! It's only a loss of 1.4lbs but still I couldn't believe it. If I were to apply myself all the time maybe my loses would be higher lol. Tonight I'm going to attend the kickboxing class after school. Bethanny to answer your question the class I attend is with a bunch of random people I don't know at a business complex. I don't think I could handle 1 on 1 I'm the type who gets easily embarrassed. Hope you don't mind me answering your question here I just feel whenever someone asks me something and I comment back they will never realize I said anything. The class was introduced to me by a friend and I have gone with her once. Tonight will only be my second time going and I wish I had someone to go with, none of my friends are that committed to losing weight and it's kind of a bummer. Anyway. hope everyone has an awesome week and sticks to plan, I have my 60day progress pictures on Wednesday hope I can tell the difference!! If today is your weigh in how did it go?

          Just finished working out

          It feel so good to work out even when I don't feel like it. I got back into the game last Wednesday after skipping about four days of working out. Worked out for three days took yesterday as my rest day so I could get back on the right schedule then got up this morning and worked out doing weights. I was proud of myself for actually getting up and doing it and I'm going to squeeze in a cardio tonight while my hubby watches the night football game. I'm going to try to get him to go to the dog park tonight as well. The weather is so nice in Az right now and we need to get out there and enjoy it with our babies. Then tomorrow another cardio workout in the morning then heading tot he kickboxing class again at night. Hubby gave me a compliment this morning saying that he can tell I'm really dedicated and that made me happy : ) tomorrow is weigh in looking forward to seeing the changes well if any at all I'm not expecting too much since I skipped about four days of working out but I'm still keeping my fingers crossed wish me luck!!!

            Goals for Ocotber...

            I know I'm a few days late and I have never put up monthly goals but I'm going to try to do it and complete them.
            1. Get into the 170's by October 31st that's about 7lbs totally doable
            2. Take my beachbody slimming formula with each meal and my multi vitamin everyday
            3. Only have 1 rest day per week
            4. Drink 100+ ounces of water a day. Already do but want to keep the habit
            5. Only go out to eat once a week or less and only drink alcohol once a week or less.
            6. Start c25k
            They seem pretty easy and attainable we will see what happens!!

              Catching up on my 30days of truths...

              It's been a while so I need to catch up with these here goes nothin!

              Day 09 → Someone you didn’t want to let go, but just drifted.
               My friend Than we were super good friends in highschool then he graduated and lives on the other side of town. We have hung out a couple of times since he graduated but it was kind of awkward for some reason.

              Day 10 → Someone you need to let go, or wish you didn’t know.
              It's not someone I need to necessarily let go because I have but one of my ex's some times things remind me of him and I wish they didn't the relationship isn't worth remembering, but I can't help thinking sometimes what he is up to or what is going on in his life. It's weird.

              Day 11 → Something people seem to compliment you the most on.
              My eyes. It has been the thing I am most complimented on physically. I also get complimented on my wedding band set all the time. I work with my hands and customers see them a lot and  also tell me they like my set.

              Day 12 → Something you never get compliments on.
              My personality... lol that sounds bad but I feel that I'm really nice to a lot of people and it goes un noticed not that I need the compliment but I would like them lol

              Day 13 → A band or artist that has gotten you through some tough ass days.
              The used... I love music in general but this music always puts me in a good mood

              Day 14 → A hero that has let you down.
              No one I haven't had too many disappointments in my life. I have been really blessed

              Day 15 → Something or someone you couldn’t live without, because you’ve tried living without it.
              I honestly have no idea. I have never restricted myself of something I like. There are things I couldn't live without but I have never tried because I know I couldn't do it.

              Day 16 → Someone or something you definitely could live without.
              Angry rude people. I don't understand why people can be so rude. I went to subway the other day and the employees were the rudest people. If you don't like your job don't take it out on me just quit!

                It's been so long!!

                I think I may be the worst blogger lol I apologize to all my readers sometimes I just can't find the time to write and when I do have time to write I don't really have much to say. My life is so busy I work, come home, workout, make dinner and ater that its normally around 9:30 or later and I sit down with hubby to watch a couple of shows. On my days off I run errands and have school both evenings so I'm seriously always busy. This past weekend I had a mini fall off the wagon, our friends got married this past weekend and my hubby was the best man so friday night was the rehersal dinner and it was mexican food. I felt that I made good choices with what was given to me and didn't over eat and only had one cocktail. I got on the scale Saturday morning just to see where I was at for the week and it read 184.8! That was super awesome that is the lowest number I have seen since my journey started. Saturday also wasn't super bad for eating until later in the night. I had scrambled egg whites and fruit for breakfast and nothing for lunch since it was crazt around my house for the wedding stuff.
                Here is me the night of the wedding
                Me and the hubs
                 Dinner was once again mexican food at the wedding and I ate pretty good probably could of done without the guac but I love it <3 We danced our buts off at the reception so I was pretty hungry when it was over. Normally I would just drink some water and go to bed but some friends wanted to go to the yardhouse for drinks and appetizers. I had a small bowl of chicken tortilla soup which is my fave and hubby and I shared classic sliders. He ate one and I had 3 so needless to say I over indulged a bit at that point and felt pretty bad about it after I just kept imagining the scale and what it would say the next day. So the next day comes and I get on the scale and it says 186.6 which is what it has been saying for the past week almost everyday so I don't know if the 184 was a fluke or if I was bloated from restaurant food and it was up a bit who knows. So yesterday hubby and I were off together and went and had subway for lunch. I ordered the flat bread sandwich but they are always out of it when I want it. It's so frustrating lol. So I got a 6inch honey oat club. It was super delicious and I had water with it. We didn't eat anything else until that night. My hubby went to dinner with my dad and uncle and I went to dinner with my mom and aunt. Every month we have a girls night out with sushi and that was last night. It was so amazing I love sushi so much. I once again only had one cocktail and definitely no soda. I haven't had soda since May crazy huh! Then afterward we walked around the complex we were at and looked at the shops and ended up having frozen yogurt my other weakness! It was delicious I probably could of have done without it but I'm not going to miss out on the simple things with my family just to worry about gaining .5lbs or less. All in all  it was a great weekend but I did way too much eating out so hubby and I are going to try to go a full week without any restaurant food. Weekdays are not hard for us but weekends friends always want to go out but we are going to try to go with healthy alternatives. So how was your weekend??
