Time to kick some sucky week's @$$

What a week it has been so far, and not a good one in my book as far as eating and exercising has gone. On Sunday I made country fried steak, fried okra, green beans, rice and gravy made with the pan drippings. Yeah, granted that is a lot of food and a lot of fried food, but I haven't made this since I started this journey over a year ago and I know that having it just once isn't going to kill my "diet" or weight loss. But then Monday rolls around....I hit the gym like I normally do, did a pretty good cardio workout and did my legs...good so far, right? Then I went to my therapy appointment and afterwards I was hungry for lunch...I should have just drove home and had lunch there, but no I stop at Chick-fil-a. I got the chicken strip salad, that alone isn't that bad but I used to much dressing and I had a coke instead of the water I should have had. But I could have just finished the day out well with a good healthy dinner, but did I? Nope, we called in Outback take-out...where I got a house salad and an order of cheese fries of my own and proceeded to eat almost all of it, ugh....what in the world was I thinking? But I let that go as well...but I came into a dilemma with Tuesday and getting my workout in. I had a meeting/class from 8:45 to 2:00 and I knew that I wasn't going to be able to go in the evening since I had a PTA meeting where my daughter was performing with her I thought I would get up at 4:30 and hit the gym at 5 when it opens, yeah...that didn't pan out...but my husband didn't have to leave until after 7 since he had an appointment so I decided to at least get a run in, was shooting for about 45-50 mins, but only ended with 30 total with a cool down...all the crap that I had eaten really messed up my stomach, err! But at least I got something in, right? And the meeting was providing lunch of subway so I knew that I was okay there, then came dinner and I went overboard again...McDonald's: Big Mac, fries and a Coke...err!!! So yeah I'm showing a gain on the scale but the week isn't over yet and I'm back on my regular schedule with the gym and dinner is already planned and had my usual breakfast, so the week won't be a total loss...just gotta push forward. I am making a promise to myself that the rest of this week will be great...I will not go overboard on my eating and I will kick butt at the gym as I usually has been great so far and I will continue to make it great!!!

2014 Update

It's been a while since I wrote a blog...almost a year in fact...

I have struggled so much with my weight over the last couple of years. I went from about 145 lbs up to 200 lbs. I'm back down in the 190's but so upset since I was so happy when I was in the 140s. I need to tighten my belt, for lack of better words, and get back to watching my diet and really and truly get back to counting calories since I know that works for me. 

What really is heart breaking for me is going up in size in clothing. I went from wearing a size 8 to a 14, now back down to 12. I hate buying new clothes when I ones I love just sitting in my closet now being worn.

The good thing this all is that I truly never gave up working out. I might have not been doing it at the intensity that I was in the past but that has change about 5 months ago. Five months ago I found CrossFit and fell in love. I have found through this program that it is very humbling and empowering. I have done more things that I have n…

So, through out this whole process of me dropping this weight my one want, my one hope would be that my legs would slim down. When I was at my highest weight I carried my weight pretty much all over my body, though my stomach was very big, but so were my legs, arms, and face. And as I have dropped the weight I have lost the weight in my face, arms and stomach, but I feel that my legs are still as big as ever. When trying on pants I don't necessarily worry so much as if they will fit in the waist or being too long since I'm short I know I will always run into problems there, lol. No, my worry is if the pants are going to fit over my calves and thighs. My wish is to be able to wear calf length or even knee high boots this fall and with the size of my legs that wish isn't going to be coming true any time soon. Plus I've noticed that I'm either going to need to stick with floor length or above the knee dresses as anything that falls in between make my legs look stumpy …
