Sometimes You Just Need A Revamp

The past year and a half of my life has been all about change and starting over.

My journey to better health and a better me started on May 1, 2012. I was upwards of 256 pounds, severely depressed, and my then husband was in the final stages of infidelity and ultimately divorce. It was my lowest low, and I was ready for something better for myself.

Between then and July 2012 I managed to lose about 68 pounds and gain an unbelievable amount of freedom, confidence, ...
The past year and a half of my life has been all about change and starting over.

My journey to better health and a better me started on May 1, 2012. I was upwards of 256 pounds, severely depressed, and my then husband was in the final stages of infidelity and ultimately divorce. It was my lowest low, and I was ready for something better for myself.

Between then and July 2012 I managed to lose about 68 pounds and gain an unbelievable amount of freedom, confidence, self-worth, and ambitions for the future. But as with any journey - I hit a snag! Between August and September of this year, I somehow managed to fall of the wagon and gain 10 pounds back!

So now I'm ready to revamp and make changes all over again in an attempt to meet my lifelong dream of a healthy, worthwhile lifestyle and a body to match. So here I am, trying to keep on keeping on!

Blender balls are magical, and everyone should own at least one. It's a plastic tumbler with a screw on lid that pops open so you can drink out of it. Inside is a wire ball. You can put anything in it and shake it to blend. Obviously, it won't be breaking up ice or properly mixing in peanut butter or whatever, but it's good for mixing powder up with just magical arm power. Also, it's the lazy way of mixing powder without pulling out the blender.

ALSO

It is awesome for scrambling eggs. You just crack your eggs in there and shake the hell out of them

Not 100% sure when the fair is happening yet, but I'm thinking it'll probably be Tues the 8th. It'll be a weekday at any rate! If you want, I'll keep you posted.

Hey there, Sis. Sorry your birthday wasn't what you were expecting. I wish I could have been there to take you out and get you delicious treats.

For some reason, my Facebook likes to cut messages off mid-paragraph, so I'll type this part here... My mother and my little brother Michael are wanting to go to my wedding thingo, but she can't afford 2 plane tickets, so I thought maybe the three of you, or even five of you (Rachael and Miriam) could rent a car together and split everything. It would be really cheap that way.

I love you, I miss you, and know that I'll always be there for you if you need advice, moral support, or whatever.

I won't know whether or not this hotel has a mini fridge until we get there. For some reason, most higher end ones don't, though you can request one. At cons, though, so many people request them you usually don't get one. You have to tell them you have diabetes and have physical proof (insulin vial, etc) to get the fridge! It's madness. I wish hotels would just stock them in every room! We're staying at a Hampton, so it's not super high end. The room is really tiny, so there MIGHT be a fridge. After we check in, though, my ride around town is gone. lol. It'll be tricky!

Resistance bands aren't too bad! Pretty much everything you do will involve standing on the band at some point, and pulling on a handle. You can step in the middle and hold onto the handles on both sides and do curls, straight arm lifts, etc that way, or even step in it with one foot. Throw a foot behind you, and do tricep work behind.

I like the bands because it's easier to get more resistance by stepping closer to a handle. When I was doing P90x, it was much faster to work with bands than to pause the DVD and change the weights out on my dumbbells.

If spark has some free vids, though, that'd be a great place to start!
