Please take time to remember our Troops that have given us the freedom to celebrate such an illustrious day, God Bless the U.S.A!!!
Well folks, it has been a LONG time, I know, and I have no excuse. All I can say is this is why…
I have been dedicating my off time to working out. In previous posts I mentioned that I was working out, and losing weight, and then dropped off. I dropped off because I have been concentrating on dropping weight, to date 33lbs are gone, and no fluctuation back up. I am working out 5-6 days a week, and watching my food intake, do I cheat on occasion? SURE, otherwise the carnage would be one of full boxes of Suzy Qs without thought, lol. So, I am good 98% of the time, and munch if the need arises then get my tail back at it a little harder the next day to burn it all off.
I have gone from from curvy 14 to a curvy 8, in six months, and it feels great. My energy levels are through the roof, and when I don’t workout because life has gotten in the way, I feel ooky so, I know it has made a difference. There is something about going into the Nike store, or Footlocker, and picking clothes off the rack without too much fuss. To be able to wear those running shorts is nothing short of freaking amazing for me. May I say, they really do make a difference when jogging, biking, or on the elliptical, fabric does not rub, and they really do wick the sweat away, lol.
Anyhow, that is what has been going on, I am not finished yet, I have another 10lbs more I would like to lose, and then access my situation at that point. I have no desire to have bone exposed, I love my curves, and feel that women with nice round hips, and a layer of curvy softness, are sexy so, I know I won’t be obsessing to the point of skeletal remains….(this is specifically to those that have shown their love to me by telling me, not to get crazy with this, lol. Here is my promise to them…I won’t get crazy. Just working up the nerve to buy a two piece but, for now a 1 piece is all I have the nerve for…So, that is it folks, I will continue my drive for my comfortable spot on the scale, and training for the upcoming 5 mile obstacle course in August, and my first 5K in September. These just seemed to be the next natural step in challenging myself so, wish me luck, and if you are so inclined come and join me, in the mud, water, slip and slide that is the Warrior Run for August. Take Care!
