Who does this??

25 Jan

Before I post my mediocre stats for the week, I will start off by saying I am STILL SORE from the 5k I ran on Sunday. First of all, I woke up at 6 a.m. ON A SUNDAY to participate in this activity. So I feel I have a few “you can’t judge me” days I can roll on for now. I ran the first 1.6 miles nonstop, then did some interval running. I completed the race in about 43 minutes, but official times haven’t been posted yet. You can bet when they do, I will share them here!

So on to the results:

Stomach 36"

46 3/4"

Thigh 25 1/2"

So my thighs and butt have decided to expand this week. But I’m going to account that to muscle gain from the race. haha. You’d think I’d get tired of these less than stellar photo results, but I think I’m starting to get used to it, and well. THAT IS NOT OKAY!

The worst part of it is, and this goes to my post title, you tell me who runs a blog diary of their weight loss efforts, takes photos and measurements in skin tight clothing, uploads the photos, and just before sitting down to type a post..runs downstairs to make a small coffee cup of caramel ice cream with caramel swirls and little itty bitty chocolate cups filled with even more caramel!

For shame!

Ugh…what’s next Public??



24 Jan

We finally picked our honeymoon destination!! After much debate, and price comparisons we have settled on….

Super sunny Puerto Vallarta, Mexico!!

It’s really a great deal to get there and the hotels are not too pricey. We can find a lot of hotels with all inclusive deals so that’s a bonus. We’re still debating on going to an adult only location, or one that does not have an adult only policy. The place has everything we both want in a honeymoon: beaches, yummy food, and the most beautiful landscapes..for cheap! Granted, there has been some talk about just how safe Mexico is these days, but I’ve had several coworkers go and safely return these past couple of weeks (well…I’m not sure where one of them is…lol) so I’m pretty confident in our safety in the city. Just plan on not straying too far from the hotel at night.

Can’t wait to kick back and throw back some authentic margaritas! Oh! And let’s hope I won’t have to hit the beach with a moo moo! 🙂 Where did some of you go, or thinking about going for your honeymoon? As you know I’m a very indecisive bride, so take everything I said here with a grain of salt…it could all change 😉

Love ya Public!

Up and at em

21 Jan

I’m finally at the gym as I type finally woking out guys! I loaded up my iPod and put on my sneakers to head out. Feels good to be here and I’m actually walking and texting successfully…on the treadmill lol!

A great iPod list def helps, so I’m just curious to ask you Public, what are some of your fav workout songs? What gets you motivated to move?

Jumping into it

18 Jan

I feel like I need a “re-do”. Where is the motivation I had a few weeks ago?? I told you guys when I started this blog, I would have some days like this. Nicely enough, this blog is the only thing I have to remind me that I need to keep it up and exercise (that and my fiance reminding we just paid the gym use it!) Every time I post, I’m like..oh yea..this is supposed to be about health, fitness, my wedding…and working out. So am I doing any of those things?? Well I don’t have any chronic illnesses (yet) so I’m okay on the health front, I’m in better shape then when I started this blog, but having been consistently improving my fitness, my mom is planning my wedding, and umm yea. We all know how the last part goes. I mean, I have lost weight. Definitely have lost about 6 inches since I’ve started so that’s progress!

But could I be doing better? I feel like I’m really starting to half ass and the most I’m doing about it is typing : / I do know I will work out at some point this week because I have the 5k on Sunday.

So on to my results since I’ve drowned you in my excuses for Tuesday, Jan 18th. Come back tomorrow..I’ll be sure to have more 🙂

(20 minutes later)

I’m trying to upload my pictures and I’m having some serious issues. See for yourself.

Stomach 36"

Hips 46 and a smidge"

Thighs 25"

Le sigh.

I just got the new iPhone 4 because my job is on the AT&T network. I’m convinced this phone is utter ridiculous foolishness. Turns out, if I turn the camera to take a photo, then eMail it –it turns the photos upside down!! How IMPRACTICAL and FOOLISH is this? I’ve only had this phone a day and I am utterly disgusted with it so far. Granted, I’m coming from owning the HTC EVO, which had its bugs, but was so intuitive I swear it could read my mind at times.

This post just turned a whole new direction. woo sah!! Hopefully I’ll work that kink out and figure how to not get them to eMail upside down : / I even opened the files in an editor and save them right side up, and it’s still upside down. Utter.foolishness. I wanted to go ahead and post the pics so the Public wouldn’t think I botched the results just b/c I haven’t worked out in a week.

So there you have it Public. I swear I’ll jump back into it soon 🙂

In a slump

17 Jan

Today marks 5 of no gym : /

I haven’t been since last Wednesday, but I haven’t been pigging out either. It’s been cold, and I’ve been lazy..what can I say? Oh, did I mention I still have that 5k this Sunday. So sure I’m going to be prepared! fiance is on his way to the gym straight from work. Maybe that’s what I should start doing..going straight from work instead of coming home first to change. That’s always a bad idea but its worked so far. Then again, I got a new phone today and I’m a nerd so that’s pretty exciting for me right now. Plus I’ve started playing “Angry Birds” and ummm, I’m really addicted. I think I’ve played at least 10 hours on it so far…since Saturday..night. The worst part is, I don’t want to sell my old phone yet, b/c I got so far in Angry Birds!

Just lame.

Yea, I have plenty excuses for not going to the gym this past..week. But I’m pretty sure I’ll feel even worse come tomorrow. Measuring no matter what. I have to say my portion control and food choices have improved this past week, so it may not be so bad.

We shall see…
