About Me

I'm a 35 year old, happily married, Christian, stay at home mother to four children. I am overweight by about 77 pounds so I decided to do something about it. I'm counting my calories! I created this blog to help others with yummy recepes and ideas on how they can eat healthy as well.

I'm back!

First off let me say I'm ashamed I fell off the band wagon. Seriously, I'm very sorry for not updating posts and being accountable. I got in a HUGE slump, I'm talking from like January and on. I have gained 13 pounds back!!!!! OUCH.  *sigh* So here goes, I'm starting out at 232.  :( SO sad to say this because I got down to 219. Oh well, life goes on. Something clicked in me again and I'm on fire! Today I had a blast measuring my food out, cooking for myself, etc. Go figure, on Mother's Day. 

I bought a very nice Pilate's machine this weekend at a garage sale for $40! It's one that is over $800 new and this is just like new. I had my first workout tonight. It was really fun and I could really feel it working on all my muscle groups. Friday I started Crossfit again too.  For those of you who don't know what Crossfit is, go to their site for more info.. the easiest way to discribe it to you is an extremely intense workout that could include anything from pullups (Kipling ones which is with a band) to pushups to wall squats throwing a medicine ball up high to rope climbing to  very heavy weight lifting done properly. It's amazing, it's never the same, all your workouts are planned for you so you show up, do it, and get one on one support. It's my favorite workout type of ALL time. It's SO intense that the max workout they allow is 20 minutes! I will be doing Crossfit at least 3 if not 4 times a week, swimming laps, and doing the pilates machine. I will also be counting my calories. Today my calories are at a little less than 1300 so I still need to make sure to eat a little bit more. I don't want to go over 1500. If I stick to it AND workout, I'm sure to be losing those 13 pounds quickly.

Honestly, my goal was to get to 165 pounds by my 36th birthday which is August 5th. That goal is now so far out of reach and unrealistic that I'm shooting for under 200. That's still 33 pounds in three months! Help me do it! Ask me how I'm doing, not just in passing. I need the accountability so dig dig dig lol.

Thanks for not giving up on me! I sure did, but I'm back and I'm going to finish this and maintain.
