Well It really has been quite a while since my last blog. With graduate school, the holidays, my job, and my home life, I really have had zero time to do a blog. So whats new….well I made a new years resolution…the same one I have made very year since I graduated from high school and gained my freshman 30…to lose weight.
This time I have a little more motivation. My family and I are doing a weight lose challenge. You put in $50, lose the most percentage of bosy weight and you can win the grand prize of $750. Yes for some reason, money has kicked on my motivation switch, and I have seriously committed to a eating right plan and I have been working out like mad.
I started the diet on january 3, and I have lost 6 pounds. It may not seem like much, but to me it is extra encouraging. I have actually been eaing really healthy, which has always been a feat for me. My husband bought home cookie dough ice cream the other day, and I didnt even touch it! For the most part I have been following the P90X diet plan. In addition I have been an excercise maniac. I have run a total of about 20-25 miles a week and done some strength training and swimming and I try to fit a day of insanity in there. I actually feel awesome, but really tired.
Juggling working out everyday, working full time, having a two year old and going to graduate school full time has really been exhausting. But for some vain reason I keep seeing dollar signs and thats really motivating me to stay on track. Hey, whatever works right?
And by the way I did get my dooney and burke bag for christmas, not the one I wanted, but my lovely husband got me one anyway 🙂 I also got a gift card to Ross, which I am saving till my clothes start falling off my ass. Crossing my fingers for that one.
Till the next time, iIll keep crunching those abs and those carrot sticks…
