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!!! :

Daily Update

So tomorrow (Friday) I am attending a class at the local church gym. It is 30 mins cycling, 30 mins weight training, and then another 30 min cycle! It is going to kill me! hahaha. However, I think this is what I may need to jump start my motivation to work out. If I can pull off a few classes a week and small workouts at home...I might just get back on track! :)

Foods today -
Breakfast - None.... :(
Lunch - Turkey, Dressing, candied yams, green beans, peach cobbler, whole wheat roll, cranberry, sweet tea (this was from the kids school....we had Thanksgiving lunch), Not ideal but....I was not passing up this lunch with my kids! :)
Dinner - Fuji apple chicken salad from Panera

Drinks - Water, Coffee, Sparkling water and blackberry juice, water, Sugar Free Red Bull, water.....

No real workout today! I spent the day spray painting furniture and cleaning out the kids room to make room for the painted furniture.

Getting your diet straight

Getting your diet straight is NOT an easy task. Especially when you are busy and the easiest thing is to stop through a drive thru!

I am working really hard to get my foods clean again! I have felt so fatigued lately! I think it is partly the way I was eating, the lack of physical exercise and just being so busy!

So I figure get the diet clean, slowly bring in the exercise again and hopefully it will all motivate me to get better, stronger and more fit!

My real goal in all of this is to be a GREAT role model for my kids. 2nd goal is to get me healthy and to feel good about it!

So....Here is my food journal from this week so far!

November 5, 2010
Breakfast - Veggie omelet - 2 eggs, bell peppers, onion, mushroom, tomato, low fat cheese

Lunch - side salad (blue cheese (I know bad! but it did not even coat my salad I used so little. lol), very small serving of Mac and Cheese (literally like......2 large bites) and green beans

Dinner - Rotisserie Chicken and a mix of fruit!

Drinks - coffee, double shot energy drink, water, apple cider!

SEE - that is MY problem! DRINKS! I drink SO MANY empty calories!

November 6, 2010
Ok so today is one of those days that it is kind of hard to eat right!!! Football messes me all up!
I had a bowl of chili at the game and then 12 chicken nuggets with slaw for lunch.
I will also have food at the birthday party lately! Today will be my true CHEAT day!
I allow myself 1-2 a week to keep me in check! :) 

November 7, 2010
Breakfast - None b/c I slept in
Lunch - Fuji Apple chicken salad
Snack - tomato soup
Dinner - Beef and vegetable soup - homemade
Drinks - Caramel Apple Spiced Cider from Starbucks, water, coffee, sparkling water and fruit juice and now a cranberry vodka
See....dang it with my damn drinks already...I need some self control when it comes to my drinks!!! 

November 8, 2010
Breakfast - onions, bell peppers, tomato, mushrooms and biscuits with gravy (I could not resist it!)
Lunch - Small chicken salad - lettuce, bell peppers, onion, carrots, 1 egg (and the nasty yoke, thanks mom), bacon (again yuck, thanks mom), cheese, grilled chicken, EVOO and Red wine vinegar
EDIT - I ate a bowl of cereal for dinner. apple cinnamon cheerios

November 9, 2010
Breakfast - Jalapeno bagel, ham, swiss cheese and egg sandwich from Panera (BAD BAD BAD but OH SO GOOD! lol)
Lunch - Mongolian stir fry! It taste like it should be bad but it was VERY healthy!!! Yay
Dinner - Grilled chicken thighs, corn on the cob, brown rice. I think the corn and rice together was a bad choice as far as dieting but it all tasted good! haha
Drinks - 2 large Black coffees, 1 glass water (NOT enough), 1 glass of sparkling water with Blackberry fruit juice
**I think my drinks were better today but no good enough! I NEED to force myself to drink MORE water! My goal tomorrow is at least 50 ozs of water. I think I will pick up a large Smart water before work and work on drinking that whole thing tomorrow! **
PLEASE hold me accountable for my water if I don't post it!!! :) 

I am drinking WAY too many calories and way too little water!  I do see things here and there that I could cut out of my diet but mostly......it is the drinks!! 

My Exercise for this week (very minimal) 
I wanted to add my exercises yesterday even though it was minimal! squats, pushups, dips, jumping jacks, lunges, yoga poses, stretches. Not much but at least something. I am PRAYING that I will get my BUTT in the gym soon!!!

  **I am planning to add pics, weight and measurements this weekend! **
