Ok so im getting ahead of myself somewhat but not really may is going to be here on tuesday. Time flys by so fast and i feel as though i havent made so much progress. But thats all in my head and thaughts like these are the ones that hurt my journey sooo i will sit here and reflect upon my journey and see how far i have come.

So i was suppose to weigh in on Friday but guess what i moved it to tuesday....I will know at what weight i will be starting May and asses how i well or bad i did in april that way i will reflect and see what changes i can make and all that good stuff.

On another note ***u dont have to read this but i thougth i would put how i have been feeling lately***

I feel that my body is starting to slow down, im so close to reaching what i had set for myself to reach 130lbs and even though i push myself and i try and do everything right i feel like my body or at this point my mind is right on the edge of giving up. I have alot more lazy days than i normally do i dont allow myself to have them but i have to constantly fight with my mind and tell it that this is for my own good and i will not give up. Some times i realize i need to change things up in order to not have to struggle with a plateau but its so hard especially when you are in love with your workout scheduale and your eating schedule and the results they have provided. But i think its finally time for me to switch things up but i dont know how. I love the eliptical and hate the tredmill and even though i know i should push myself to try something new and strengthen myself in all areas. But i feel that when i dont enjoy the workout im more likely to give up or try and come up with any excuse to skip it. WHAT TO DO??? ill see how this last week and a half of school go and once i get home ill try new things such as running outside or starting workout videos ive been thinking of combining Insanity and 30 day shred. and this is only because i have no gym access back at home.

omg talking about gym access my friend back home the one friend who has always been the big girl just like me. ( a liitle bit about her she lost weight our senior year of high school and to be truthful i was jelouse she had so much attention and suddenly i was the only big girl in the group. However she started gaining weight throughout the last 2 years ) During spring break i went to see her and she didnt mention anything to me but my brother came home and was like ooo she was talking to one of your other friends about how you lost so much weight and that you look so different. That made me feel so good i dont know why but just knowing that people notice make this journey all worth it. But than on the other hand this might sound selfish but what ever this is the way i feel and i cant help it, she suddently after seeing me she want to lose weight too. But she has decided she suddenlty out of no where cares about animals and wants to become a vegan WTF. And than she messages me randomly and is like o i really want someone to workout with this summer we should be workout buddies. And to be truthful i said yes but at the same time i love working out by myself i have time to listen to my music and clear my head and push myself to my fullest. but when you are with someone else they are talking to you and than when they want to go ahead and do something else you feel obligated to go with them or at least slow down especially if you two are running together. IDK if i like this whole workout buddy but ill give it a try and see how it goes.

This post was super long sorry...hope you all have an awesome weekend enjoy the last couple of days left in Apirl and let make May count

So like ive said over and over again if i had to give any advice to those starting out or those who are going through stressful moments like i am right now. Eat healthy: healthy to me includes a small portion of protein with each meal and alot of veggies. And most of all Drink lots and lots of water.

here is an example of what my day would be like
Times would vary so i wouldnt exactly know

Gym (6:30) ( elliptical 60 min) usually i burn 700cal or 650

breakfest ( this changes alot but usually a boiled egg with avacado and veggies sandwich)

Early Lunch ( usually this changes: when i have a long day i eat a bagel toasted with a very small amount of cream cheese, on my shorter days i will eat 2 different fruits ( strawberries, banana, kiwi, apple, orange)

snack: I normally grab some string cheese, nuts, or another fruit

Late Lunch: (3:00) this is always always always at 3pm: This changes a lot depending on what i cook or what i have available in my fridge. an example is a small portion of grilled skinless chicken breast with a medium size salad (tomatoes, cucumber, romane lettuce, avacado lemon juice)

Dinner: (6:00) i usually try to eat at 6 or 7: This changes as well but usally its the same as my late Lunch i cook enough food for two servings and i eat one serving late lunch and one for dinner
**and if for some reason which only seems to happen during my "TOM" days i end up getting cravings or feeling not full later at night around 8 or 9 i eat a late night snack usually i grab fruit or recently i baught some string cheese and i usually grab that.

Im not affraid to feed my body when i feel i am truly hungry only because i know my choices are healthy and i never count calories i guess you could but thats not the type of lifestyle i want i just want to be able to rely on my own instinct
weekends are a different story weekends are my days off because i like to confuse my body usually on weekends i eat heavier meals and i dont workout. I still eat healthy but i usually replace the salad with brown rice and instead of my regular protein i change it to a higher calory protein such as beef susage or ground turkey or fish. Sometimes i go with whole wheat pasta with all natural tomatoe souce and i eat this in portions. But like i said this changes alot and depends on what i have available.

I go grociery shopping every week to get fresh veggies and fruits. I used to always buys food on campus and i would choose somewhat healthy foods but i noticed that i spend the same amount buying food everday than i do buying grocery everyweek. So money wise its the same and i feel better know that i eat alot healthier. Im in no way an expert in what you should eat and i think you should focus on buying things that YOU enjoy. By buying thing i enjoy i dont feel like im starving myself or forceing myself to eat things i dont like this helps me avoid binge eating even on weekends "my days off" i dont go out and buy some fast food or anything Like i said i change it up and eat things i like such as pasta and rice.

This was a long post i hope i was able to give you guys some ideas of what could work for you guys. It all takes time nothing is easy and remember results should come slowly.

if you guys have any questions or comments please dont be shy i will answer any questions. Have an awesome week.

Weight update

Hey my blogger friends.....Ive been stressing like crazy this week and i cant seem to focus but the good thing is that school is over in 3 weeks which i realize will be the most stressful weeks ever but than i will have 1 month free and at home before i have to come back and take a summer class but anyways

This friday i weighed in at 138.8lbs last week i was at 141.2 thats 2.4 lb down which is awesome you guys

Like i said stress has been affecting me and truthfully i missed about 5 days of working out and to make things worst "TOM" came and everything went down down hill regarding working out and having the energy to do anything. But the good thing which i think helped me still loss weight regardless of working out or not is eating super duper healthy.

**check out my next post i will be talking about what i eat and some things that i think are helpful**

weight in Friday

today i had one of the worst days of my life i was in pain this morning with no clue why and ended up staying up all morning from like 2 to 7am with pain and than having to go to class for an exam and a presentation. Longest day ever and i have to admit im feeling so much better now.

As for my weight loss i have good and bad news....This morning i weighed in at 141.2 thats so good but here is where the bad news come in...I was 141.4 last friday and than easter weekend happened. I ate super horrible i knew i had gained weight and i decided not to weigh myself because it would make my week sour and all that. So i basically am back to where i was one week ago. you could see it both as good and bad but ill take it and move forward.

The goal for April i had setup for myself was 140 i think if i continue to go in the same direction ive been going for the last 2 months i should be past 140 by the end of April so i decided to change my goal to 135 lbs im shooting very high but i hope i can atleast be 135 by the second week in May which by the way is my last week in college and than summer vacation for me :)

hope you all had a great week and enjoy your weekend i know i will be studying alot so wish me luck.

Weigh in Friday!!!

So friday is here and i woke up feeling amazing. I steped on the scale and found out im at 141.4lbs that is a 3.4lbs loss from last week...Can you imagen the smile that was on my face this morning. Well this made my day and it pushed me to do better at the gym. Im improving everyday and trying to push myself to do better in my workouts.

I think what has been helping with the weight loss like i mentioned last time.... is my eating habits. Im focusing on sticking with fresh products alot of vegtebles and less carbs. I dont have much to say but i will continue to post and keep everyone updated. Im sure by next weekend i will have some new pictures to post so watch for that.

Did i mention my boyfriend is visiting this weekend. Super excited and at the same time worried how horribly im going to end up eating. But its ok i need days off anyways so i wont stress and as soon as he heads home which will be sunday afternoon i will be back on track and hopefully have awesome news next friday.

Wednesday, April 4, 2012


Its been a week and some time since that last time i did an update. Things have been crazy with juggling everything and making sure i stay on track with school and with the weight loss.

Quick update Friday 3/30 i weighed in at 144 lbs which is a 3 lb lose from the last time i updated. That is amazing so i left march with a high note...Just a reminder my goal for APRIL is to get down to 140lbs...I have changed a couple things up so here is a quick list of those things.
1) I stoped doing the 30 day shred...It was amazing and i liked it but i wasnt seeing the results i was looking for and also i was getting board of it. (im thinking of visisting this workout once i get down to my UGW)

2) Ive still been going to the gym every morning on the eliptical 60min (interval). The last week in march i started to do 30 min on the tredmill (interval of walking and runing) and than 30 min on the eliptical( intervals)

3) ive also started to do not doing hard core or starting the program completely im only doing it when i have time and when im in the mood. (lol)

4) the most important of all...I talked to my Father about uping my monthly allowance so that i can start buying fresh food instead of buying school food. We did the math and it came out to be about the same amount. So last week i started buying fresh things and every weekend im stocking up. take this from me serously...EATING FRESH IS THE WAY TO GO...ive felt a big difference with alot of things. I dont feel bloated anymore, i feel like i have more energy, and i feel good knowing im not eating processed foods. Ive been trying to eat alot of greens because i herd that flashes your system out and i think its working but either way i love it.

This was a long update like always and i promise i will be trying to do more quick updates and keep all of you informed with what is going on. One big difference i think you will notice is that i have been focusing alot on the weight loss but i need to swich things up because school has been suffering and so i need to but weight loss on the side burner and but school first. As soon as school is over in May i will go hard core on weight loss and so lets see how things go.

Hope you all are having awesome results...stick with it...The end results are the best results for all the hardwork you put in ...and always remember give your body a rest before your body gives up on you.. one day of eating wrong wont kill you..take it and learn and move on. Lov you all
