Not gunna lie..

I have definitely slacked off on working out. I'm going to do Zumba today, so I'll get 20 minutes in, but otherwise I had a full day of cleaning and laundry ahead of me :(
I did join Weight Watchers which I'm pretty excited about! I love all of the "cheat sheets" and recipes they have! Once we go grocery shopping I'm going to try A LOT of them out! As well as the ones I have pinned on Pinterest!
My weight is staying about the same, but I do feel a lot more confident and better about myself. I can't wait until I see the inches "fall" off or the scale number go down. Just gotta keep trying, even if I fall off the bandwagon for a couple of days, I can't quit!

I hope you all are happy or satisfied with your body/diet endeavors! You can do it!

..joined weight watchers! Super excited to see if I can lose some of this weight. I'm about 15 lbs overweight right now, and that makes me super sad! I did Zumba today and it was so fun! I'm going to the gym tomorrow and I think I'll either run or go on the elliptical or bike tomorrow and then do Zumba again. Yay. I'm so proud that I'm actually going through with all of this!

I've been horrible with updating. I forgot how busy I get when I have school, on top of work, and then having my son. Anyway, my weight loss/diet thing is going well! I have been eating moderately well, I barely drink pop anymore, and I'm working out. I joined my school's gym so I'm going to be going to fitness classes 2x a week. I also want to do quick, middle-of-the-day work outs between classes. You know, 20 minutes or less, just get on the treadmill, or elliptical, or whatever. I'm excited! Even my sister and Andrew already have noticed a change, and even though I can't really tell, I feel a lot better about my body and I'm much more confident. :) I may not ever wear a 2 piece again, but I love how I'm feeling about myself!
All of you struggling with body issues can get over it, I promise! I'm halfway there!

Um, wow.

I have been taking all of this WAY TOO LIGHTLY. I know I am overweight and I am not doing enough to lose any weight and feel better about myself. I am at 144 now (2 lbs gone) but I have been eating better! I have to up my motivation though. I've gone running once and done my 30 day challenge twice this week which is not where I should be. I should have run at least one more time and do my 30 day challenge one more time, so although tomorrow is the weekend, I am doing it tomorrow! It's my punishment, since I skipped out today and yesterday. Any one else struggling with losing weight and gaining motivation?

I need help! I wish I had a group of walking/jogging moms that I could join here, or someone that totally got my busy schedule and could work out with me "after hours". Hopefully I'll find something/someone soon! I really think I might buy a fitcard from my university's rec center and do zumba once or twice a week! It sounds fun and I would be with other people my age. We'll see though, for now, this is it!

Aaand again.

There I go again not blogging everyday like I said I would. I decided to do running 2x a week and the 30 day challenge 3x a week. I've already failed. I did the challenge yesterday but I didn't run today. Didn't get up early enough before work and then after work I was "too tired". I know, excuses! Maybe I'll make up for lost time tomorrow. We'll see!

Day one.

Today is January first, which means my New Year's Resolutions start TODAY! Hopefully I can keep up all year with this, but we'll see. Here are my "rules" for myself:
1. No pop during the 5 weekdays; on weekend I can have 1 pop
2. Light/moderate exercise 5 days a week. C25k/jogging 3 days a week, 30 day challenge 2 days a week.
3. Be up before 9 to do all exercises.
4. Learn to cook! And try to cook as healthy as I can!
5. Be happy, do what's best for my family, and be the best mother and girlfriend I can be!!

So today, I weight 146 lbs, I'm 5', and I'm finally realizing if I don't start something NOW it'll never get done and I'll be unhappy with my body forever. I also just want to be confident again! I used to be so confident and now I never think I look good even if I try.
My biggest goal is to be at 120 lbs by summer and then 110 by the end of the year. So total that is 36 lbs I need to lose. But for the first few months I'm focusing on the 26 I want to lose. Woo hoo! I'm pumped. Maybe I'll get a few more followers as well! I tried this before and did it for like 3 days, so I need to last SO much longer! I want results!
I'll also be posting a picture EVERYDAY of myself and my surroundings. I think it will be fun. The first picture is not a great one because I just got off work and it was a looong night. But nevertheless, here it is. Happy New Year's everyone!! xo
