October.... I can't believe you are already here but this is my month!!! Time to be a better blogger, better eater (not that I have been bad but I can be better) and also a better worker outer lol. I can't believe how fast this year is flying. Being in school part time while working part time makes my life so crazy. I am back down to my pre vacation weight which makes me happy but this is my time to get out of the 160's once and for all!! I have only seen the scale show 164 one time since I have been on my weight loss journey and I'm ready to see it again and then see it go. I mentioned before that I was thinking of trying out anytime fitness and I set up a two week trial membership there. I went everyday last week and this week will be starting out my final week. Thursday is my last today. I think I will be switching to there I like it so much. There is never anyone there and sometimes I have the entire gym to myself. I can play my music out loud, use any machine I want with out having to wait and I don't have to worry about what people are thinking when I am using the weights/carido machines. It is pretty much a no stress environment. It is a little bit more then what I am paying at golds (only by $5) and it literally takes me 2mins from my driveway to get to the gym parking lot vs. 15mins to get to Golds and the parking lot is super crazy unless you go at 8pm or later. The only reason I stayed at Golds was because of my zumba class but my zumba teacher is mia still. Tomorrow is the last day I am going to see if she is there and if not I am cancelling then heading to anytime and signing up. Does anyone else workout at anytime fitness? what do you think?

I have been doing farily well with making hungry girl recipes. Last week I surprised my hubby with a three course meal all hungry girl recipes. I made a soup as a starter which was so amazing!!! Then for dinner I made lasagna with eggplant and then I made a chocolate mousse dessert with oreo and we had a side of apple cider. trying to cut out my booze intake. I got really drunk at a party I went to the other day I hadn't ate the whole day and was super hungover on Monday (sloppy I know) alcohol to me now is like blah not in the mood for it.

I'm going to try and go to the gym everyday until vegas and hopefully get back into my two a days. I want to lose 6-8lbs this month and feel its completely doable as long as I stay on track with points and working out of course. What are your goals for October?


  1. I have been on a roller coaster ride with my weight loss, school, work and my sis' twins on top of my own daughter is too crazy right now :( you sound like your doing god though I think you can def. lose that weight if not more this month. I hope i can too im slacking something serious :( I hope you enjoy your new gym it sounds a lot better than golds. let us know how it works out. Hope you have a good wi this week. ttyl!

  2. I like your blog! My goal for October is to stick to my workout schedule and to lose 10lbs. I like how you post your goals on your blog. I had a terrible experience with Golds Gym as well. It appears they are all run poorly.
