I Didn’t Fall….

I tucked and jumped off the fitness wagon. I tend to do that from time to time. Am I proud? No. No I’m not. I could sit here and give you a list of why and the what happened was…. But I’m not going to do that. I’m accepting my fault. I am also moving on. Friday I went to the gym for the first time in a while. But today is the really real deal.

Day 1

I did 35 minutes on the elliptical and 25 minutes on the treadmill. I ate well all day. I also struggled a little bit. It is only day 1 though. I’m not new to this so I know I can do it. It also helps that my guy is in my corner, always there always cheering me on! This is an inner struggle though. I know after the first week I will feel better.

So my goals for the rest of September are to go to the gym 4 days a week. Eat well. This last weekend of September, no cheat meals. I just want to take the last 9 days of September and just get focused.

I hope everyone has been doing well, and hitting goals!!


Home from our vacation. Whew, it was different that’s for sure.

I got a to see my brother, who I hadn’t seen in 6 years. Kylee’s swimming has improved and she can now do a flip. We shopped a lot and ate way to much!! All in all it was a great time.

We always need a day or two to recover when we come home. Readjust ourselves so to say. 15 days in the country then back to city living. The first day back I lost myself for a minute, went outside with no shoes on, I was like EWWWW I’m on a Brooklyn sidewalk with no shoes on!!

Lexi, my 18 year old, stayed home this trip. (Another reason it was different this time) So she’s glad to have us all home again (kind of). I missed her.

Next on our agenda, school starts in 33 days, so we’ll begin shopping for that shortly.

Until next time I hope y’all are fabulous!

Vacation Time

Having a very good time so far. This is Day 1 out of 2 weeks. This is me, my father and my brother. I haven’t seen my brother in 6 years! 

This was me at 6:30 this morning though. I might not be eating very good right now but I still gotta get that workout in. And will be doing so every morning.

And when I’m not eating or working out, this is where you’ll find me for the next 2 weeks.   

I hope everyone is having a great week!!

1 Month Hiatus

Yes. I took a one month break.

Where to begin? Well there was no particular reason for it, I just did it. I didn’t go to the gym nearly enough and I ate horribly. I don’t know if I’m that disappointed in myself though, because I kinda feel like I got this one life to live and I wanna do what I wanna do and sometimes that includes eating junk food and not going to the gym. Oh well. Am I enjoying myself? Immensely! I gained a few pounds back, no I’m not happy about that part but hey. I haven’t weighed myself lately I can just feel the extra, lol!

Anyway, I’m leaving for my vacation in four days. I’m pretty stoked about it. I get to see my brother who I haven’t seen in some years. And of course I always enjoy seeing my dad! I’m going to miss my guy though! ❤

We leave in 4 days and I haven’t even started to think about packing. Procrastination at its finest here folks!

I hope y’all have been doing fabulous and it’s great to be back! ❤

Couch 2 5K

One of my goals this month is to finish the first 2 weeks of the Couch 2 5K. I’m pretty pleased with myself that I’ve finished the 1st week and started the 2nd week!! Running was never my thing. Like, never! In high school I wouldn’t even run in gym class. I just thought I wasn’t good at it so I wouldn’t do it. Never thought I would be able to get any better at it. Well here I am, on my way to being able to run for a substantial amount of time. Practice makes perfect, and I find that I’m actually enjoying it too. Pushing myself. Just trying to to do a little better everyday. I did a little over 3 miles today in 45 minutes!

I am on my way!!

Happy Monday y’all!! 🙂

Weigh In #3

I’ve been MIA this whole week, been busy some days and tired others, but here I am for weigh in day! Last week I gained a pound, and am happy to say I lost that pound (again) and another one to go with it!! I weighed in at 168 pounds today! Next month will be 3 years since I started this journey of mine and I have lost a total of 60 pounds!! 🙂  It has been up and down but I am so glad I stuck with it and just continue to persevere. So if you’re on your own journey and you’re struggling, keep going! Be persistent. Make small goals, and know that you got this!

Hope y’all have a great weekend!
