Honesty is the best policy, right!?!

Monday, October 20, 2014

Well as I was looking at my AMAZING fellow Sparkers pages I noticed a common theme. They were honest (or seemingly so) about how much they weighed throughout their journey. So I changed my ticker to actual show my HONEST weight. I'm tired of hiding. I'm putting it out there and I'm going to work my butt off (literally) to get that football to the end zone!

Yes, on one of my pictures it says my highest weight was 235...LIE! BIG FAT LIE! My highest non-pregnant weight was 251 BEFORE kids! I know the numbers don't define me and the scale won't tell me I'm beautiful but it's time I get REAL and stop hiding.

So from here on out it's the truth and NOTHING but the truth!

Fighting my food addiction...

Thursday, October 16, 2014

This morning I was reading on the SP message boards and I read some HARD truths about food. Food is an object, like a pencil. It doesn't shove itself down our throat we CHOOSE to eat it. The best definition I found is below...

CHOOSE: to select freely and after consideration

The part that blows my mind is that I have mindlessly chosen to ALLOW food to control me. To allow food to have a voice and the strength to make me eat it. Realizing that I hold all the power has FINALLY flipped a switch! I don't have to eat junk just because it's there.

I feel like this is my "aha" moment and I will not CHOOSE to allow food to have power. I will allow it to be the OBJECT it truly is. I will select freely AFTER consideration.

I have the power to break this cycle and NOT pass it on to my children.

What are YOUR Locker Room Shower Tips?!

Thursday, October 09, 2014

So I shower at the gym a couple of times a week but it seems to be a long arduous process. Do you have any tips or tricks to help speed it up!?!? Or even tips on how to feel less "dirty" from showering in a public place LOL! I feel like there are germs everywhere! But I have to remind myself that the likely hood of the germs killing me are MUCH less than being obese.


October Goals

Wednesday, October 01, 2014

So It's a new month and I failed on my last goal. I'm disappointed but feeling more motivated than ever to make sure I stick with this months goals.

1) Track everything! I mean it this time! I've been doing well for the past few days.

2) Exercise everyday using the Jillian Michael's 30 Day Shred. It's only 20 minutes...who can't find 20 minutes to workout?!?!

3) Lose 8lbs this month! Kind of hefty goal but I can easily accomplish it if I track my food and exercise.

So here is to a new month and in a few weeks hopefully a new me! emoticon emoticon

When I joined Spark People in September of 2012, I began tracking every single calorie that I ate or burned. That first month I lost 12 pounds!!! That was the best "jump start" I could of asked for to help fuel me to lose 73lbs before I got pregnant with my daughter.

I am going to start again (yesterday was my first "official" day) and I am going to try to beat that 12 pounds because I am much more athletic this time around. Its crazy to look at pictures of myself at the same weight but I look different because of being more "fit".

Hopefully, I can update y'all on 9/21/14 with a new One Month weight loss record! emoticon emoticon
