I really REALLY didn’t want to workout today. I mean I was flat exhausted to the point that I walked myself all the way to the subway to go home…BUT I thought to myself, I’ve been doing great all week why break the spree? So first I was just going to do the 30 day shred but the stretch room was full. So, off to the bikes I went for 30 minutes. Then the stretch room was clear and the 30 day shred day 8 was done! I was warmed up and built up some energy so I decided to get some fresh air and then boom there goes my second Brooklyn bridge run of the week. I’m feeling so strong this week and empowered. I don’t know what it is but I’m taking full advantage of it, especially since it will be cold outside again for the next few days. Total tonight: 941 calories burned: 33 minute run on the Brooklyn bridge and back, 30 minute bike ride and the 30 day shred [day 8] done. Proud of myself but going to make time for healing these sore muscles this weekend (still gotta do the 30 day shred though).

Wore black today and remembered one of my biggest inspirations favorite mottos tonight: “when I wear black it’s a #funeralformyfat!” -@funeralformyfat

Now home to a hot bath and grey’s anatomy! #win

P.s. sorry I haven’t been on the last week! We’ve been entertaining our awesome families in the city. They leave today :( so its rest for me the rest of the weekend and back on the grind of working out and eating right on Monday. I’m back on <3 thanks for following xoxo

#tbt #throwbackthursday - this is a combination of two throwbacks (one from my highest weight/one from my wedding this passed weekend) getting my motivation back and not giving up on my fitness journey!

No more excuses. YES I was stressed for quite a bit of time wedding planning, didn’t eat as well as I should have and certainly didn’t work out, but that is not a reason to give up on my fitness journey. The wedding is officially over (November 2) and while I have two jobs, I still have more time to plan and prep my meals. Time to get in line with myself:

1. no sweets unless it is a special occasion
2. Drink more water
3. Try to relax
4. Work our when I can
5. Focus on eating properly and transforming my body

New goal: lose 5-10lbs before our honeymoon in mid January!

Feeling good today...why you ask?

I’ve lost 2lbs this week after working my butt off (literally :P) in the gym last week and I feel great! I’m down a total of 41lbs now and only 15lbs away from my goal weight. I think I recharged my weight loss plan and I’m feeling great. Hoping to lose this other 15lbs by the wedding. 97 days to go ;) 

Starting weight: 196lbs

Current weight: 155lbs

Goal weight: 140lbs 

As always - thank you for being amazing followers and tracking my fitness journey with me. If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to ask :)
