Good day all!!! I am so tired! My little princess is in pre-school and my 2 year old is running a muck and I am trying to maintain a workout schedule in addition to keeping them on a schedule with all of the OTHER responsibilities as a wife and I cannot keep up!

Anyway, despite being tired I have been to the gym 3 times this week and my goal is to go 2 more times. I have lost 6 pounds this week and I am very pleased *happy dance*. I am trying to prepare myself for this season. I'm used to cuddling up to a nice book and eating sweets. My body is so used to that during this weather and I am clearly going through withdrawals. I want a donut, cake or some sort of carb. I haven't had them in 5 days and it has not been easy, but I am definitely moving forward. I just have to get better with getting my water intake in.

I see that I have gotten more subscribers over the past 2 weeks and that's a HUGE MOTIVATOR For me!!! Hi!!!!*waving* Thanks for subscribing!!! I hope to really knock down 25 lbs in 2011!!!

Just what the doctor ordered!

Listen very closely(Ok, read)! Speaking positive things over your life is definitely the way to go!

I was bummed on the last post, but I am also deteremined to lose 40lbs, ok! So, I got an email yesterday from our Wellness team and Zumba is coming to the workplace!!! AHHHHHH, I'm so excited! I was invited to "interview" and participate in a round table to pick the instructor. The "interview" is basically me taking the class with all 3 teachers today! So excited! I needed this push, it will help me to get myself back in the gym and to also help me to have more energy. I have not been sleeping well and I am always soooo tired. Looking forward to the experience today, it should be lots of fun:) Keep you posted:)

Insert *LONG SIGH* Here

I am determined.
I am motivated.
I am fearless.
I am unstoppable.
I am a winner.

My morning mantra. And even though the scale stayed the f n same(well minus a couple ounces), I will not go and have a piece of cake. I will change up my approach.
I will hit that gym hard, 4 days, I will cut my carb intake to 3 meals this week and I will stay in the race. I've noticed that if I don't get the sleep I need to function(7-8 hours) I get very bad migraines. I have a food diary and am jotting down every single thing I put in my mouth and drinking so much water that< THANK GOD, my office is 5 feet from the restroom. I will stay focused, I am determined.

Day 3 of the cleanse and I feel like crap. Migraine's the past 2 days so far, I was bit by something on my face and it has swollen up to the worst Ike Turner looking black eye I have ever seen. I've never been vain(or maybe I just didnt notice). I came to work today because I skipped yesterday due to the migraine! LORD, my cleanse has not made this any better for me, because I'm not eating carbs and my body goes through this weird detox when I stop having carbs( you would think once my body finished the detox, I wouldn't mess with carbs again) I digress. So, I say all of this to say that this week has been crap. My face is a hot mess(the left side) and I am counting down the hours to leave work. I may work from home tomorrow and come in the office on Friday if it doesnt get better. My doctor gave me Prednisone to take for the next 5 days twice a day. I took 2 last night and had 2 this morning, hopefully this speeds the process a bit. All in all, I am following my cleanse, feeling like crap and all. But, I know I can do this. Keep you posted on the process. BLAH *deep sigh*

Why is Friday so close to Monday and Monday so far from Friday...I had a tough night.

Anyway, I have had some stomach virus for the past 24 hours. I have been drinking lots of liquids and drinking broth. I was already starting a cleanse today, so I decided since I had such a sucky day yesterday, I would move right into a fruit and veggie cleanse. It just works better after not feeling so well and still not feeling 100% today. After I cleanse for the next 7 days I am going to figure out what my next steps are, still not sure of that. My goal is to get all of my water in this week(so, I will be in the bathroom alot) and get my 4 days in at the gym. I really wish my phone could upload these darn pictures, so frustrated with Sprint right now.

I have been wearing some really cute things since I have not GAINED any weight since I took a summer hiatus, that's how I know I can lose the last 30lbs.! I have been totally stalking all things fashion, all of these wonderful and totally FAB fashion bloggers and have been inspired for the past few months to step into it a bit more and I must say it has been so much fun! I love getting dressed! That's why I have to drop the last 30, because there are a few things I want to wear that I can't get into, so I'm on a mission! I will keep you posted on the process:)

...its been a long time, but I have been totally out of it. Enjoying my summer, not really watching what I was eating, but not pigging out either. I have been active trying to enjoy the summer with family and friends. As of late, the weather has changed dramatically and something clicked. It's time for a cleanse, something to get me back in the mode of feeling good again. I haven't been getting enough sleep and I have been eating more carbs than usual so, it's official, this Monday(because I will be shopping Sunday), I will come back and check in on what my BOOST will be to kick myself back into gear.
