What's up peeps!!

It is almost Friday, woo hoo!! Honestly sometimes I don't know why I get that excited, b/c lately I've been working Saturdays, but the weekend is almost here none the less...

This week, I have been good. I have clocked in a good 3 days at the gym and today will be my rest day, but who knows I might go in for 30 minutes. I have been on point with eating, the only slip up I had was the homemade strawberry cake I had at work yesterday during the lunch meeting.  Literally, most of the meeting I was battling in my head whether or not I was going to get a piece. I did end up getting a piece and I didn't feel bad about it either. It tasted damn good. The girl who made it is notorious for making awesome desserts and this was one of them. Anywho, I made sure I took my ass to the gym and ate a salad for dinner!

I'm going to the Dominican Republic in T-8 days and I can't wait!! the only thinkg I'm worried about it is weight gain. I'm on a roll with my routine and in a few days, I'll be at an all inclusive resort. Food and liquor at my disposal. Damn...I am bringing my workout clothes and a min I plan to workout 3 days. I can't let a few days derail what I'm doing. I am so tired of this yo yo game with my weight. So I'm going to work hard leading up to the trip and during the trip. That's the plan and I'm sticking to it!

I kicked the weekends ass...for the most part

What's up peeps!!

So every once in awhile I read on people's blogs that blogger has been a little tricky and not cooperating. Well I just had my first incident. I was updating my weights and then I tried to publish it and then it went crazy on my ass. The content on weigh in page disappeared, ughhh!!!! I hadn't been tracking it anywhere else. It's a little frustrating, to say the least. I'm going to let blogger calm down before I do anything with it. A sister is a little upset...

Anywho, this weekend I did pretty good. I would grade myself a B+. I worked out on Saturday and I ate all my meals at home. That is a big accomplishment for me, weekends are my weakness. Sunday, I almost didn't eat lunch or dinner b/c I was reading "The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet's Nest" by Stieg Larrson and I couldn't put the book down. Literally. I read the book for about 6.5 hours straight. I didn't go to the gym, I didn't do laundry, I didn't answer my phone b/c I was so engrossed in the book. The series was great and I recommend it to any and everyone. Fortunately I did go grocery shopping before I started on the book.

The only disappointment of the weekend was my choice of dessert on Sunday. It's called Dessert Sunday's at my place. My roommate and I both have a sweet tooth, so instead of indulging randomly, we chose to do it on Sunday's. I bought a rocky road brownie and some ice cream from Walmart for my treat. Long story short, the brownie was gross. I could only eat half of it and I threw the rest out. There are no re-do's on Dessert Sunday's, so my sweet tooth was not satisfied, but hey there's next Sunday.

Today's weigh in had me at 297, down 7 lbs from last Monday. I'll take it! I am going to be in the 280's by the end of the month, I'm claiming it! Time for me to get my True Blood on since I missed it yesterday. Goodnight peeps!

Hey blogville!!

T.G.I.F!! It has been a great week!!! I mean a great week! I have worked out 4 times so far including 2 in the morning and if you don't know, morning workouts are so not my thing! My eating has been on point and I know that the scale will reflect it on Monday. After my last post, I read the comments (thank you guys) and it made me realize I need really set some goals. I have all of these thoughts of what I want to do, but I haven't committed them to paper. Someone said goals are only ideas until you commit them to paper sohat's exactly what I did last night. I made health, personal, financial and professional goals for 3, 6 and 12 months. It's a rough draft now, but I'll polish it up and post it everywhere! In my room, bathroom, my car, anywhere where I think I need to be reminded and motivated to keep going. I've been stalling and need to get my butt back in gear! This week has mos def been good!

Happy Friday!!

I'm Struggling

Hey Blogville!

I am back from one my mini hiatus. I missed you guys!! Seriously, I did. I have been going back and forth between the same 5-8 lbs for months and I'm disgusted with myself. I haven't given up, but I need to really get a handle on some things, primarily my eating. My working out has slipped a lot and I'm trying to catch myself before I completely backslide. It's been hard. It's been a struggle, but when I catch up on the blogs and see what I have accomplished, what others have accomplished I know I can't stop now. I have so much more to do. 

So here I am. Trying to be transparent. I need help. I need support. I won't give up. This journey is not over yet.
