Oh my goodness... I can't believe that I am finally at the half way mark of my weight loss progress. To date I have lost 32 lbs (in 5 months time). That is such a great feeling to have!! My goodness! So I figure that by November I will have made it to my final goal and at that point I can start tweaking things so that I can possibly lose another 10 lbs. WOOHOO!!!
Ok... more later... gotta start Fung Shui'ing my house! Ha ha!

I know its been a while since I blogged. So today I decided to look over what I had blogged about previously and I also looked at my goals. OH WOW do I need to really kick things up a notch... well actually SEVERAL notches!!! My weight loss has slowed down so much! I can't wait to start training with my PT again. I miss her! My diet has been fairly good. But I did have more cheat meals than what I should have. So I know that's why my weight loss has slowed. But I didn't fall off the wagon that bad. So being totally strict again like I did in the beginning is just what I'm gonna have to do. PERIOD! Anywho... thats my story today. Time for a total RE-VAMP!!! Grrrrr!

Yesterday I had an appointment to see my trainer and go over my diet. I knew she wasn't going to like what she saw. I was down .2 lbs since the last time I saw her (almost two weeks previous). So needless to say she wasn't all to pleased. The last two weeks have been tough on me emotionally and mentally. Even though I had a week off from work, I've been struggling with things in my mind and in my heart. A lot of different things have been weighing on me and every day I think about those things. Its made me feel depressed and constantly questioning myself and the choices I've made in my life that has brought me to the situation I'm in now. I talked about my struggles with my trainer and she told me that stress makes it harder for a person to lose weight. And she's right! She told me that I need to get over this hump and push thru it and fight to stay focused. I love the way she talks to me about things. It gives me a new sense of confidence in myself and in my abilities. She's an awesome trainer! Thank GOD I have her on my side!
So, today I have had a successful day of eating all the right foods and keeping my body fueled. And tonight I had an AWESOME workout! I trained legs and really pushed it hard. I think my tush is really going to hurt for the next few days. Then I did an hour on the elliptical. I was soaked in sweat by the time I finished. I feel great! :)
Tomorrow is a new day again and I will be getting up bright and early to meet up with my trainer and some other people to do an hour bootcamp. All the proceeds go to charity. So I'll be getting my butt kicked while giving a little something to help out with Alex's Lemonade Stand. Its a wonderful reason to get my butt kicked, don't you think?

Ok... so I'm back at work now. And of course I have the piles of things to do that were left for me all last week. Ugh! Last week I had my vacation. I spent a lot of time in the gym, so that was definitely a good thing. But, my trainer changed up my eating plan and well... I dont like it. Blah! Its not that I dont like the food. I just think that I like what I was eating before so much better. This time its kind of boring and well... blah! I feel like all I can eat are protein shakes, egg whites, oatmeal and some lean meat with green veggies. I can do that maybe a few days out of the week, but every day??? I just have to suck it up and do it. I was well... not so good with my eating this week. I had a few meals that weren't on my list. But I did stay within a 1300 calorie range. But again, my body knows that I'm not eating right and now my weight loss has slowed down. I did lose almost 1/2 lbs in 8 days, but thats really not much at all considering how much I should be losing if I followed my trainers plans to the T! And well, she did say no cheat meals this week either. But did I listen??? NO... I had a few. And of course I have excuses for having cheat meals... like my daughters birthday party. But I can hear her little voice in my ear saying... NO EXCUSES... FOLLOW THE PLAN! What can I say... she's my personal "Jillian Michaels Junior"! LOL! Anyway... Today I started back to eating the foods I'm allowed to eat and I always log them in my iPhone. So far so good. I want to lose a few more pounds before I see her. So, I will be going to the gym tonight and will be kicking my butt all week (like I should have been doing LAST WEEK!!!).
By the way... I plan on posting some progress pics soon. So keep checking back. :)

I am SO SORRY for not blogging lately! For the last two weeks I have been fighting a virus at my job. And of course I am the only one that can fix these darn things. So, my computer along with everyone elses has been basically in repair mode. Anyway, I'm finally back on line again. YAY!!! Today is the first day of my week vacation from work. I cant wait to just finally relax, get more focused on my eating and exercising and catch up on some things around the house. I took sort of a two week hiatus from working out. I've been so exhausted. Not really from exercising but from working my mind trying to clean things up at work. ANYWAY... I am psyched! I'm still losing weight and now that I'm on vacation I'll be able to really focus on myself and kick it into HIGH GEAR! WOOHOO! Well, I'm off to get some R&R then go to the gym and burn some fat later on tonight. I will be back later... I PROMISE!! :)
