About Me

My photo
TN, United States
I am 31 years old and have been married to my high school sweetheart for 13 years now! We have two children, one boy (9) and one girl (7)! I was very athletic in High School and began modeling and working out right after high School. I had been a steady size 5 in high school and went down to a size 1 for modeling! I was so skinny! Anyways, after two complicated pregnancies on bed rest for months, I found myself 90 lbs heavier! I have struggled for 9 years now trying to get the weight off. I have finally gotten somewhere!!! :

Last night was a LONG night! I had to sleep all by myself b/c Jake was in the hospital still. :(
I woke up many many times last night and that has me OH so tired this morning!!!
However, I am so super excited. For one, I think Jake may be doing lots better....For two, I got on the scale this morning and was going to yell at myself for the little piece of cake I ate yesterday and the margarita from last night, BUT.......I am now DOWN  5 LBS!!! YAY!! I just might make the goal of 10 lbs in 10 days now. I have lots to do today but I am hoping and praying that I can still get in a good workout. Not sure which one to do today. I was kind of thinking the plyometrics from P90X. I could use a good cardio workout.

My weight this morning was 155.3!

I will come back later and update you on my food and workout!

Getting a workout on a crazy hectic day!

So life is always throwing us curve balls! I really need to get in a workout but I am so super tired from not getting much sleep last night! Jake was up all night and I kept waking up too. I have to take him to a couple doctors today, pick up the kids from school, do homework, make dinner, and then rush off to football. AAAGGGHHHH!!! 

My goal today is to complete a Jari Love video. I am in need of a good lower body workout and her squats, pulses and deadlifts are amazingly good. Hard but good!!! :)  

I will check back later to update  you on what I ate and what I was able to complete. 

**Just completed Jari Love - Get Ripped! 
I LOVE her workouts! They are fantastic strength training workouts. I really like the emphasis on lower body. 
This is a picture of the DVD I just did! Here is a preview of the workout: Preview of Jari Love's Get Ripped DVD Workout

Hello Again!!

So I feel like I have been struggling to get my motivation up! It really kind of sucks. It does not help that I have been dealing with cluster headaches and migraines again. :(
I get all pumped to workout and then I feel so physically exhausted that I give up too soon! I am down 1.5 lbs since the beginning of this week. I am worried I will not make it to my goal of 10 lbs by Tuesday!

Today's food was:
Breakfast - 2 egg whites, tomato and jalapeno
Lunch - Turkey burger on Whole Wheat with 2% cheese, ff mayo, onion, tomato, jalapeno
Dinner - Salad with iceburg lettuce, cucumber, tomato, chicken and homemade dressing - (sesame oil, Dijon mustard, Red Wine Vinegar, 3 garlic cloves, red onion)

Edit - So later on last night I decided to fit in another small workout. 
20 side pull ups (band)
20 hands up pull ups (band) 
20 hands down pull ups (band)
20 wide pull ups (band)
10 guy push ups 
10 girl push ups 
16 wide push ups -girl 
5 close push ups - (girl and triceps)
20 dips 
30 squat with arm raise - 6lbs
20 ea back lunge - 6lbs 
20 ea forward lunge - 6lbs
30 down set squats (like football quarterback)
20 hip swings (dip down and swing hips side to side - kind of stripper like lol)
20 crunches 
20 reverse crunches with legs straight and then out

 I am sure this extra workout was good but the HUGE bowl of  cereal after was NOT! I don't get why I do things like that!!! 

The cereal was honey nut cheerios, rice chex, sliced almonds and whole milk

So yesterday I was really good with my diet and today I have been really good as well! I was working out and eating right but gaining weight.....MY DOWNFALL - MARGARITAS!!!  I love those things and they were making me fat! lol. I can't help it....summer equals margaritas for me. lol. 

Anyways, I last night I did 10 assisted pull-ups, hands forward and backwards. Then I did 17 guy push ups with 15 girl push ups. I also did wide, diamond and close handed push ups. I did dips 25 and squats 30. I did several jumping jacks and 20 crunches with 20 bicycle each side. Oh and also 30 reverse crunches! 

I did loose 1.5 lbs last week! Yay! I have one more week left to loose more weight. Now that I know what my culprit is....I should do much better! 

Oh and I have been wanting to purchase and interval timer and then I thought.....what about an app for that. lol. I have the droid market and I found one! Yay! Its free and now I can do interval workouts so much better! Can't wait. 

I think tonight I may try to get in a Body Rock.tv workout. I LOVE her workouts. I will be sure to update you on what I accomplished.

Back on Track with a 10 Day goal!!

I have been struggling to get back on track! I took a break from fitness and nutrition and though it felt worth it....Its hard to get back into the groove! My mom has opened a family restaurant and my son is in football. The kids are now both in school as well...SO...my days are staying very busy! Hoping to get all this under some kind of routine soon though! 

I did try a cycle class last week and a few little things here and there.

Today though.......I did the following: 

**Just completed the Kenpo X (boxing and kicking) from P90X - Whew! I love this shit! I think I may look into boxing classes! **

**I just completed 7 miles on my mountain bike with my hubby! WOW! That was HARD!!! Its time for a shower!

After shower - time for lunch. I am thinking a big salad! Maybe some chicken on it. Yummy. 

I ended up eating a salad - iceberg lettuce, shredded cheese (just a little) breaded chicken thighs with EVOO and Red wine vinegar.  Also had a roasted Chicken sandwich with pepper jack cheese and light mayo on whole wheat Arnolds bread.

I also had a Starbucks coffee today. It was a Venti Nonfat Toffee Mocha. So good. Then I had a Strawberry Banana Shake from Steak and Shake. (so bad but so good). I gotta get better at just saying NO to those cravings! 

I will try posting some pics soon!

10 days til VEGAS! I want to loose 10 lbs in 10 days! Can I do it? We will see! :)
