Tick Tock Tuesdays

1 Mar

Well hellooooo there Public!

Hope I haven’t been gone too long, sure feels like it! A million things have gone on including being out of town all last week so that’s why no posts but I’m back and here to post my weekly results! I still get measured for my dress this Saturday and I have vowed to not act a damn fool when they tell me what size I need to order. After all, I go back in June for another fitting, so I’m thinking of that as a second chance to maybe really seriously get serious this time? I know what you’re interested in so here goes!:

Stomach 36"

Hips 46"

Thigh 25"

So there it is! Don’t mind my nails, I swear I painted the things on Sunday and after I showered on Monday they were halfway nicked off. It’s just been downhill from there with those nails.

It’s been insane what’s been going on. I still haven’t kicked up my workouts, but I’ve been eating better. Mostly because after last weeks out of town trip I indulged. I mean, I did in-dulge. It was on the companies dime, and there was room service 🙂 So about this app, I entered in my weight and how much I want to lose and then it calculates a plan for me based on that. I have a set number of calories each day and I try my best not to go over. So far, I’ve been over one day, and 400 calories under another, so it kind of evens out (??) I’m set up to lose 1 lb a week. We’ll see how it goes! My fiance is threatening to cancel my gym membership if I don’t get active again. I don’t respond well to threats 🙂

Anywho, I’m more interested in what you guys have been up to, so I’m going to spend some time surfing around to my favorite blogs. I need to figure out how to get a blogroll on here so I can shout some of you out, but I haven’t found it on my widgets menu. Anyone else have this theme and know how to do it?


Facing the Fat

21 Dec

I’m feeling great about posting this week. Not that there is any significant loss or gain, just good to redeem myself after skipping a week of not posting. We had a team holiday outing today and though I snacked, I only had 3 chicken wings, one tacquito, and like 6 sweet potato fries. Trust me…I could’ve done FAR more than that! This will be another tough weekend as it is Christmas and I’m going home to see family. I plan on taking my workout clothes (as usual) but hope to actually pull them out this time and umm workout! 🙂

It’s getting a little tougher to measure my stomach as my belly button isn’t as high anymore. I like to measure just around the button and it’s the only way I can be sure I’m measuring the exact location each week. My thighs are noticeably more toned, and I really can’t tell too much with my hips because they are just super wide for no reason at all times.

Stomach 36 1/2"

Hips 47 1/4"

Thigh 25 1/2"

Not so shabby this week. I still still (still) need to increase my water intake. Sometimes I just don’t drink at all until I have a meal. Mainly because I’m busy at work most days and don’t like the idea of having to use my precious minutes traveling to the restroom for a bio break. My coworker drinks water nonstop all day, and she visits the restroom equally as much!

Feeling good so far! I’m ready to head home, see my family, and open some presents!

What are your plans for the holiday Public??

Meeting the mark

7 Dec

So today marks one month, or four weeks that I’ve been posting my progress online. I’ve learned so far to not to expect anything, but to always look back on my work from the previous 7 days and be proud knowing I’ve done my best with the baby steps I’ve made. I was talking with a friend today about the wedding and my weight loss and how I’m really playing it cool so far, but I can’t help but wonder what is going to happen 6 months from now. Hopefully I’ll be happy with the progress I’ve made, but I hope I don’t start to freak out and crash diet and every other insane thing I can do to look good in a dress.

I’m more confident now that this change is not only for an event, but my life. I feel good that I’m not rushing into it and not saying “Starting today I will have no carbs and only 2g of sodium”. I know that’s not realistic, and I know that’s not how I’m going to live my life. Does that mean scarf down everything in my sight? No.

I’ve learned from a few of you with your own weight loss wins, the steps you’ve taken to meet your goals. I see Betty’s healthy recipes each week and they look so yummy! I know I can eat good food and still do well! Graceful Skinny is struggling with some health issues, but is managing that and her weight loss at the same time with a ton of..well grace. And fatisnotanoption facing the same issues I’m facing daily, but handling it head on still pressing toward her goal.

So that being said, here are my numbers for this week and a small breakdown of my progress since 4 posts ago.

Stomach 37"

Hips 47 3/4"

Thigh 26"


  Nov 9, 2010 Dec 7, 2010  
Stomach 39.5 37  
Hips 48.25 47.75  
Thigh 26 26 Loss/Gain
  113.75 110.75 -3


So in 4 weeks I’ve lost 3 inches. I’ve yo-yo’d around those same measurements these past couple of weeks, but it look like those are going to stay with me for the next 4 weeks. I can only go down from here!

Thanks for your support Public!

Sore loser at gaining

30 Nov

So I’m feeling okay about this week, considering historically what happens around this time of year I can’t be too upset.

Stomach 37 3/4"

47 3/4" + some 🙂

Thigh 25 1/2"

I didn’t take in my water as I was supposed to this past week. So I’ll try again. See if that helps any. I worked out 5 times last week, and then 2 times so far this week. I probably should go tonight, but I’m feeling so blah and bloated. : / I did a Basic Training class last night and I’m still super sore from that. Definitely looking forward to Kickboxing class tomorrow night.

But why can’t I go tonight?? I guess because my original plan was to go out for a friends birthday celebration tonight, so my brain was already programmed to not go. The celebration was cancelled, so I’ll be saving tons of calories I’m sure!

Knowing me, weeks from now when I’m trying on dresses, I’ll think back to this day and say to myself “I should’ve went to the gym that one night!!”

But for now..I think I have some DVR to catch up on!

See Public, moments like this is when I need one of you here for a good kick in the rear. : /
