Wednesday Weigh-in

171 bishes! I'm just excited that the number keeps falling!
Yes, I know it has been slow.
No, I'm not going to let any naysayers rain on my parade about it!

I have done the fad diets. I have done the quick weight loss and guess what: I AM STILL FAT!
That's because I didn't make a lifestyle change.
I made an I need to fit in to that damn bridesmaid's dress change.

But guess what peeps: I'm changing my life.

Today I took another exercise class at our new gym. It was the first time in a long time I didn't cringe when thinking about going to work out. I took my clothes to work because I knew I would be rushed and honestly I think that kept me from overthinking it too much. I just threw on my clothes and went! Tonight was Zumba. Yes, you're right, I am in fact a Zumba instructor. And I LOVE to teach it. But sometimes it is really fun to be in the back, looking like a fool, and laughing my butt off while I'm doing it. Sometimes it's nice not to have the pressure. So tonight was fun. Two songs were the same that I teach, completely different choreo of course and I almost broke in to my version half way, but I caught myself! hehe!

I have to let you guys know about something else I've been doing. I'm following and if you don't, you should. She is freaking hilarious! Well one day she had a link to a holiday challenge. I signed up and now 5 of us from all over the world weigh in together each week as the "Tough Turkeys". You know you are jealous of our awesome group name It has been one of the things that has definitely kept me motivated. Every time I want to cheat I tell myself, "You can't! You have to weigh-in and you don't want to make your group suck!" So my advice - find a group, find an accountability partner, post your weight on your bathroom wall for your husband to see I'm just kidding don't do that one. It will suprise you how much of a motivator that can be!

And finally.....I need more followers! Again more accountability! Please share with your friends. Please subscribe. If and when I get 25 followers, I will have a giveaway. And it will be a good one too!

Peace out! Love Lunday

I'm back!!!

Hey lovely ladies! I'm back. I've been out of commission for a while. I know, I know major fail but...sue me! I have been ridiculously, stupidly busy for the past month or so. I also got sick off my butt last week! UGH!

So here's the scoop. I'm down to 171 lbs. WHOOT! I'm 1 lb away from a 10 lb goal and will post a new "body" picture soon.

It has gotten freaking cold in Missouri. I had to break out a bunch of my winter clothes and one thing I decided is my clothes just don't feel good. Of course I want all of the health benefits associated w/ weight loss but I'm really freaking tired of my clothes not fitting good. I hate that my stomach feels tight and my thighs rub together. I am bound and damned determined to feel better in my clothes!

In other news, we joined a new gym. It's a 24 hour facility that uses your fingerprint for access (big money here in small town USA). They do 2-3 classes every night which I'm really looking forward to. When we went to sign up they were doing this ladies only class and everyone was singing at the top of their lungs. It made me really freaking excited.

Tonight I did a pilates class and here's the good thing: I was able to do it all. Here's the bad thing: I looked (and felt) like a beached whale while doing it. We warm up with a little mat work which was all fine and dandy and then the instructor says ok everyone grab an exercise ball. I'm new to the class so I let everyone get theirs first and I end up with a ball thats half freaking deflated. I sit on it and sink about a foot below the rest of the class. Here I am trying to do all the exercises with my shrimpy ass exercise ball. We ended up sitting and balancing on the ball with feet off the ground for 3 minutes (thank you Jesus for the half deflated ball!!) and I kid you not, the lady in front of me fell off hers and took out about half the class, while I sat with perfect balance because my rear was sunk so far in to the ball it wasn't going anywhere! But ya know I feel really good after the class. I can tell I'm going to be sore (holy hamstrings!) and I think I rediscovered my abs (they are under there somewhere right?!?)

Since I checked in with you all, I have continued running but haven't been to the gym. It was nice to get back in to the game! ANDDDD for your viewing pleasure a picture to end the night with:

Have a fantabulous week! I promise I'll be a better blogger :)
