For real this time.

9 Jul

Wow! It’s been a while since I have posted!

I haven’t been active online, but I’ve still been going through ups and downs with my weight loss journey. I’ve tried a few diets, considered a few quick fixes, and held my index finger over the “buy” button of a few tempting Groupon lipo deals.

But alas, I have stuck to my au natural route and have not strayed 🙂 I started on the Fat Smash Diet a few months ago and actually saw some lbs drop which was a miracle b/c even back in December when I worked out, I didn’t lose any lbs, just inches.

Now I realize the importance of diet and how critical it is to health and weight loss. I’m at 185 lbs now and I haven’t been in this bracket since last March of 2010. My goal is to be at least 160 by November, but I realize I need to amp up my exercise and consistent with my diet.

The Fat Smash introduced me to eating fresh foods and it’s crazy to see our freezer is practically empty but our fruits and veggies are packing up the fridge. I haven’t been totally consistent, I’ve binged a few times–done some traveling with my job which means oodles of free eats I just can’t refuse.

It’s been SUCH a long and arduous task, but I look forward to updating you on the status the next few weeks 🙂 Just looking at my last post lets me know how far I’ve come. I’ve lost an additional two inches from my waist and one from my hips. I know if I were consistent it would be much more. But of course…..

Here we go again!!

Today, I got anxious

15 Feb

Not because of the stress of the wedding, or the fact I don’t have a direct supervisor anymore and tons of work projects are in limbo, I got anxious when I saw the 5-day forecast. High 70s all week. Public, it’s starting to warm up around these parts.

Yes, it’s an awesome time given the storm we endured last week but it’s also a reminder that boots and heavy jackets will get packed up for another 7 or so months, and the tanks and shorts will arise again.

Ah, there has been a change in my mood lately and it’s noticeable to those close around me. The reality of the wedding being 8 months away, and getting sized in less than a month is really starting to hit home. YES! I said this journey isn’t about an event or a dress BUT darn it, I’m starting to feel the pressure!! (This is the part where someone hands me a paper bag and tells me to “Just breathe”!)

Besides NOT working out for the last few days, I guess my strategy is going to be to pout and stress the weight off as I’m not really asserting any other alternatives here people!!!

Woo sah! 🙂
