So I weighed in this morning at 194.8 I have gained almost five pounds from the last weigh in and well need I say more. I am totally bummed but I've been so busy...I will make it to the gym on Thursday for sure so that way I don't feel like this week too..has been a waste...back on track after this flu and busy week with bosses and what not...I hate excuses so I am going to get back to it...I refuse to weigh more than at the beginning of this challenge!

So you all have a great Healthy day!

Big Day Today...All Week

Today my boss is coming to my store...and it's all about making sure he's impressed with my progress....I have seen so much of my District boss lately and will be that he may have had enough of me for the rest of the year...lol...No in all actuality my boss is cool...very smart and I have learned a lot from him...I have three bosses...as if one wasn't enough but hey you do what you have to. So no work out today and no work out tomorrow because I am going with the boss to Bismark...and then Wed. he is back at my store until he flies out...so there goes three days...My flu is still here but I feel a lot better...I want to get to the gym....And I don't even know if there is a weigh in tomorrow...please let me know...Ok wish me luck..

You all keep up the good work and remember to be Healthy...MUAH!

I'm back...

I know I've been gone for two weeks not one and I was going to check in on Tuesday but the following occurred....I got ready Monday night for a company business trip I need to leave for on Tuesday at about eight...I was going to log in and update my blog before I left but then I received a phone call from a friend asking me if I would take her to the hospital....so of course I got all my things together got them in the car and took my friend to the hospital then back home...then of course I was late to getting on the road so I took off after dropping her off at home. See we are Air Force wives and our husbands leave every couple days so we are alone most of the week. And of course; I took her because we are all we have when our husbands aren't home. So then I left to the twin cities for the meeting I needed to attend and I started feeling my throat bother me...I ignored it as long as I could but by Wed night I knew I was sick. All day Thursday I felt like poo...even at the meeting on that day...and imagine I still had an eight hour drive back after the meeting...So I drove home and of course have been trying to recover from this monster...Today I woke up made breakfast and now I am going to work...even though I don't feel 100% I need to go get something done because I haven't been there all week and my district supervisor will be in tomorrow...AHHHH!! So there you all have it...I am trying to recover and get to the gym too! I haven't worked out since two Fridays ago...don't worry I'm still in this...I am not going to quit...

I hope all of you are doing great and are being healthy...MUAH!

Not Leaving This Team!

Today I was a bit sadden by the fact that people are leaving us (challenge)...but I am also happy for them because they have chosen that GAG isn't for them or just doesn't fit in their lives right now...which is okay too! Our lives are constantly changing and I can't say I haven't contemplated about leaving the challenge too! But I need a challenge to move me...in fact after GAG I have a plan of doing an Olympic triathlon...That means I need to lose some weight to run comfortably as well as sit in a bit seat for miles on end...lol....Too those of you still with us I'm sooooo proud of all of you...and to those who aren't I wish you all the best in life!

Today my babe comes home and I will meet him at the gym after work...Super happy about that! Oh and my weight loss as well 1.2 pounds! I'm happy that I did better this time around. I hope that all of you stick with it while we are on "break". I totally appreciate this quiet week because I do have family who survived breast cancer.

Good luck to all of you this weekend and remember Have a great HEALTHY day EVERYDAY!

The Monday before Weigh In

Goodmorning everyone! Today I woke up and got ready for work and served myself some kashi with fresh berries and yogurt....for lunch I will have a salad with some chicken and then after work I will go to the gym....All this is "the plan" what will actually occur is not known...but I will try my best to stick with what I plan to do.

Ok...I really haven't put much in the blog these past couple days so....I will try a little harder to be more motivated...trying to do anything lately has been hard...I'm homesick and its cold...a bad combo in my book...I hope everyone else is doing great though...

Have a Great Healthy DAY!

Today I went to the gym and did the muscle pump class...it was good! I felt tired afterward and instead of staying for another class I came home...I made myself a tuna salad and now I'm just lounging...It is cold outside I anything I can do to stay out of the cold is way good in my book...

I'm not looking foward to going to work tomorrow but we all have to make a living...I've been working out but I can not get out of my homesickness funk...I don't feel like myself...yuck!

Hope you all are having a great day!

Thursday & Super Cold!

So today is Thursday and it's only getting colder here in ND....Like I said before I've lived in Texas my whole life until recently and now I'm in "Antarctica!" Ok well it feels that way for me...My friend Lisa is leaving to Michigan because her husbands' grandmother passed yesterday...My prayers are with them and their families...So today I am going to the gym then home to get ready for work...then of course work it is. I will take dinner since I close tonight and won't get out until 9:30....

On a different note I wanted to share that I am super homesick! My sister called this morning at like 7 and she said to bundle up because I live in the coldest part of the country at the time...WoW! I miss my family and friends and my pet too! When my husband is not home and I am alone I feel horrible...I don't want to eat or even go outside...I mean I drag myself to the gym but then right back home....I know that I am a 27 year old woman but I am very attached to my family...especially my MOMMA! I miss her the most considering she lived with me the past 5 years before moving up here. Anyway I am going to be as positive as I can be...in a couple months I will be visiting home for Christmas..

Ok everyone have a wonderful Healthy Day!

Hubby Back!

I love the fact that my husband is back home...I really feel homesick when he isn't here...even after I go to the gym....Today I made us a smoothie for breakfast and we are going to the gym..I'm doing a muscle pump class and he is working on free weights...I didn't weigh myself this morning because its that time...just as I mentioned prior...yuck! But I am going to fight the stay in bed because its cold, your are feeling yucky, and you are tired feelings. For lunch I am going to hope that the chicken defrosts in time and I get to make my pasta. Anyway I really hope the rest of my team does well and keeps their goals in check...REMEMBER THINK HEALTHY!

My Frienemy...

So this scale of mine....eegh...totally erks me sometimes really!~ I weighed myself yesterday and I was at 191 lbs and I was all stoked thinking if I am really good all day I can totally be at 190 tomorrow..well didn't turn out that way this morning..I weighed 193.2...not even a complete pound lost from last weigh in. I am so frustrated with this scale...forget the scale my body! WTF I have been working out in fact if super ugly outside and still I drag myself to the gym...woooh...

Okay....getting a grip...today I ate two peanut butter and jelly sandwiches for breakfast and a salad for lunch...going to the gym if time permits after work and then coming home and making dinner for my hubby and I. Chicken with whole wheat yolk less pasta and tomato sauce which is low in sugar and sodium...

A new week right? Okay so I'm going to focus on the good and I may come back next Tuesday with a 5lbs loss...jk. I will keep it up...I realized just right now that I am expecting my monthly friend soon which probably explains the gain....ok I will not freak anymore.

The new challenge is great you can earn all sorts of points...oh and I believe I kept my promise which I posted on my blog last week...So this week I promise to go into all my team mates blog at least twice this week...So there you have it a freak out-daily blog-and total mess!! LOL

OH and for breakfast I had an omelet made with three small eggs (two whole; one white)...and of course my coffee...

Buenos Dias!

Hello everyone! Today I am beat and I didn't go to the gym....I woke up in tme but then I laid in bed...thinking it's cold...I'm sore...and tired...then the inevitable happened...I fell back to sleep. I woke up and saw that it was 9:09 am which is six minutes until the class that I wanted to do starts...Oh well, I'm not going to beat myself up. I ate my kashi cereal with low fat soy milk with one banana...I think I'm still off to a good start.

See I think this all happens when its cold outside...brrr...j/k. Anyway I close again tonight at work so I will pack my dinner and healthy snacks so I don't attack the vending machine. I will probably go the gym tomorrow after work when I get out earlier. I've been feeling tired lately but I've been dragging my ass to the gym four days in a row..I feel great afterwards then..after my shower I'm back to "man I'm tired..." WTF...Maybe I need to workout longer...lol...so the high after a workout lasts longer too.

Okay I'm crazy...but on a different note I haven't received the "amazing acai berry" supplement...not to thrilled about receiving it anymore since they charge you 79.99 for 14 capsules...turns out the free trial is only 14 days worth and they send you thirty! I called and told them that I was going to send it back as soon as I received it...crazy...these people are rip offs! No wonder I never fall for those gimmicks...but I got suckered in this time...Don't do it people...they are after your money...

Alright back to being positive...Have an Awesome Healthy Day! And THANK YOU FOR THE SUPPORT!
