189 pounds

So I really, actually, FINALLY started moving towards my goal weight and I wanted to share with anyone who may still be paying attention.
The picture on the left is from One month ago, I weighed in at 189 pounds
Yesterday I went to the doctor and weighed in at 176 pounds.
Thats 13 pounds in a month and I definitely knew there had been a change but I didnt really realize until I saw these pictures
So proud of myself and my progress!

December? What?

As I reflect back on the past 11 months, I am just a little baffled at home much has happened and everything I have done/gone through. It has been such a challenging year. I guess you could say I’m doing okay though.

Hello, Thanksgiving weight. I definitely need to just go hard and be strict this month if I want to see any further progress. 4.7 pounds would bring me to a 100 pound weight-loss, but a 6 pound loss would bring me into the 160′s for the first time in over a decade. Challenge accepted? I don’t know. I’m not going to stress myself out over this, but it would be pretty A+ if it happened. Sorry (not sorry) if I’m a broken record. 

Fashionably late weigh-in post.

This is the first time I have been on Tumblr from my computer, so I apologize to anyone desperately waiting for my August weigh-in ;) Hahaha.

It’s going down! Slow and steady. I’ve seen flukes of it at 176, but not consistently yet (176.4 today even after pizza and drinks last night AND lots of water). It feels so good to finally be maintaining under 180 again though. I’m considering a pedicure as a treat because my feet/toes are dying and I don’t want to deal with the dark blue nail polish I currently have on. 

Can’t wait to see what progress I can make this month! I am going to go much harder with the 21 Day Fix and Shakeology. And you know, half marathon training should probably get thrown in there, too. <– Haha, I promise. 

Happy June, my friends!

Not only is it June 1st, but it’s MONDAY! This does not happen very often so we need to embrace it as a sign to kick ass this month ;) Don’t let your goals stray further away than they already are… I legit haven’t been this motivated in such a long time. My weigh-in went fine this morning, although I will say that the scale read half a pound lighter at first! Bitches. 

1.1.15 - 189.4 pounds.
2.1.15 - 187.4 pounds.
3.1.15 - 188.4 pounds.
4.1.15 - 186.6 pounds.
5.1.15 - 191.4 pounds.
6.1.15 - 185.0 pounds. 

Final weigh-in for my DietBet is June 9-10 and I’m supposed to be at 178.9 by then… My monthly visitor is here right now so I definitely think it could be more doable once she goes away. I’m making lasagna for the boy’s birthday tonight :) But other than that I forsee lots of meat, veggies, salads, and Shakeology in my future. I. Can. Do. This. Speaking of food…

I was in a hurry this morning so breakfast was quick, but so yummy and satisfying! I still love Shakeology with just water and ice, but this one is coffee, a little almond milk, and ice. Such a treat considering there’s a high of 88 here in Denver and it’s currently 66. I’m getting hot already. If you’re interested/have questions though about Shakeology or any of the workout programs (Insanity, T25, P90X, etc.) let me know! 

Anyway, working from home today and my shift starts soon. Make today great!
