February Reflections....

So today is the last day of Feb it's crazy how fast this month flew by! I had a lot of success this month and it may be my best month weight loss wise. Of course not all months are perfect but I think I did so well because I set a goal for myself, and it was an important goal! As some of your probably read I really wanted to fit into this dress

It is my hubby and mine anniversary on March 5th and we are headed to vegas. This dress just screams vegas to me because it is so sparkly and flashy while cute at the same time when I bought it it was no where near fitting it wouldn't even zip up! So I told myself that I would make this dress fit me for our trip it was time to take my weight loss seriously and set a goal and hit it. I am tired of always saying I would lose weight and do nothing about it. So I set mini goals for the month I claimed it to be "fast food free February and alcohol free feb" I didn't go out to eat AT ALL except on Vday and today! Pretty much the half way point and the end of the month I didn't have any alcohol until tonight  and to be honest it tasted disgusting. Granted what I had wasn't that great but still it was just blah to me. I rather would of just had a shakeology for dinner and called it a night.

Dates are important and my hubby keeps asking if I would go on one and I finally gave in and said yes reason being is because

THE DRESS FITS!!!!

It finally zipped up yesterday fully and it actually feels a little big on the sides but I'm totally fine with it. I have never set a goal for myself and actually attained it. Now some of you may be thinking that since I hit my goal I am going  to loosen the reigns on myself and eat out whenever but that is not the case at all. It was more of a celebratory dinner and we went out to sushi and I didn't even eat it all or finish the beer I got. I stuck to healthy eating the entire month besides these two occasions. I literally tracked and measured every single thing that I ate I didn't have any soda at all not that I normally do and I only skipped one workout but doubled up the day after the day I skipped it I had one shakeology a day and had two snacks along with lunch and dinner and it made a difference pairing all that up along with my body bugg made a huge difference!

I really want to be at 155 by the end of March and feel it is completely doable I am honestly terrified of what vegas has in store for me. I don't want to ruin all of this hard work I have put in but its also vegas food wise i'm not too worried its more the alchohol that I think will be a problem but I am bringing my Turbofire with me and fully intend to do the workouts while we are there. we leave monday and I am going to do my w/o here before we leave, tuesday I can spare an hour and get it done, wednesday is rest day on turbo so that's easy and thursday I can do the w/o when I get home. In reality there is no excuse not to do the w/o so I am going to do my best. I still am super nervous and even thought of bringing the scale with me to keep me on track... (obsessive much)

what would you do with a vacation like this just right around the corner?

So I bought another dress for vegas today let me know if you guys like it!
It's a size small!!!

Can't wait to see what results March will bring!!
