Weigh In / Work Out

Good Afternoon!

I managed to get about 45 min – 1 hour of walking in today during all my break, I usually walk about 1 mile every 10-15 minutes, depending on how many older women I have to run over..lol So I feel as though I got in my steps for tonight’s weight in. I aim to get at least 10,000 a day. But since I didn’t go and weigh in yesterday I have yesterdays steps adn todays steps.. so far I have 19, 076 steps! Hopefully I lost a little bit. I’m more excited to hear if Kyle has lost anything.

Does anybody else work out at work or on their lunch break?

I used to feel tired when I would, but now I’m not nearly as bad, I may be a little drouzy but a quick snack or some water usually clears that right up! I also got called skinny minnie TWICE today, really cheered me up but also made me walk longer..lol I’m the kind of person who really can’t take a compliment seriously!

Anwhoo, work is almost done, I would like to get in a few more steps so I think I’ll do a few more steps! I hope you all enjoy your nights, I’m sure I’ll have a blast working *cough ..not.. cough* I will be posting bright and early tomorrow to let you know how everything went

C’Ya!

Delicious Treats!!

Man, did I make the most wonderful treats within the last two days!! I wish I had my camera to show you all just how TASTY they are! I even forgot the recipes at home, so I will have to post them tomorrow since I work again tonight at Fabutan.

The first ones I made were called Peanut Butter Protein Balls, all you add were peanut butter, honey, protein powder, rice krispies and some other ingredients and they reminded me of some cookies my grandmother used to make.

And, today I made Chocolate Almond Protein Balls. They have unsweetened cocoa, protein powder, honey, anddried apricots and you roll them into balls, then roll them around in crushed almonds!! SOOO GOOD!

So I leave you this morning with one of my favorite shows BIGGEST LOSER “Before and After” photos!!

Just look how tiny they got!! This proves that anybody can loose the weight if they REALLY want to!! πŸ™‚

Me and Kyle have our weigh in today, I’m a little nervous since I treated myself to like a tablespoons of peanut butter last night.. so I cheated..lol Maybe I’l walk it all off at lunch!!

OH! and I almost forgot, they are opening a gym here at my work (Hospital) for 16$ a month!! Is that not ridiculious, I am paying 60$ a month at my other gym!! I am totally joining and will go there everyday at lunch!!

CANNOT WAIT FOR SUMMER! This will hopefully be the first summer in YEARS that I will wear a bathing suit in public.. so excited!

Celebrities Working Out

My boyfriend lost our camera! I now how to depend on other forms to brighten up my posts to give it some more interesting things instead of just food and me rambling on! SO, I love to see photos of celebrities working out, it really makes me feel as though they aren’t perfect, they too have to keep up at the gym and eat healthy to have the bodies they have.

So, I have gathered a few celebs that I like, along with photos of them working out! So enjoy, and please do comment!

First, we have Audrina Partridge! She was spotted in LA @ this new gym that incorporated acrobats! I think Audrina is very fit, she has said it her self that she works out almost everyday to have her body in the shape it is!! *inspiring*

And Next we have Kate Beckinsale, I found a photo of her working out! She is a super mom and drop dead gorgeous!! I hope I look like here when I reach her age!

Last but not least we have a double whammy! Two celebs, Ashley Tisdale and Vanessa Hudgens are working out together!! They are very young, so no wonder they are so small but again, even they need to work out!

Anyways, the point of this post is to make everyone look back on themselves and don’t give yourself such a hard time! Everyone needs to work out and eat healty to acquire bodies that you see in magazines! But most of the celebs are usually photoshopped anyways.. SO yah! Happy thinking everyone!

Total Weight Loss

Last night me and Kyle were supposed to go to UWeight Loss and find out what exactly we could do as we could not afford to pay more money for the vitamins. They told us we might be able to get our 700$ back and use that towards the vitamins, and will a long period of thinking last night, We decided we’ll do that. We were already investing the 700$ for the program and as long as we do not have to pay a penny more, we’ll do it.

As for our weight loss, Kyle has already dropped 8 pounds and I have dropped….*drumroll*…. 4 Pounds! Once we start really getting back into our gym routine, we should see a weightloss of around 2 pounds pre week, but if we work hard enough and get into a routine, we may see more weight loss.

The realy point of this all is for me to loose a few and to really support Kyle, he has been overweight since I met him, and he used to have the worst eating habits ever. Since I came along, around 2 1/2 years ago, he has dropped porbably around 15 pounds, since I have been the one making better meals then what he was accustomed to. But he really wants to get down to a weight that he should be at his age, and I want that as well. One day we’re going to get married and I need a husband who will be with me until the end.

I love him beyond belief and will do anything to support him and help him regain his health ❀

p.s I had a record amount of visitors yesterday!! Thanks everyone for checking out my blog, I hope you all enjoy, and keep the comments coming!! They really make my day πŸ™‚

Seriously, can you find a more perfect or prettier person then Megan Fox?? Hot Damn! I really wonder how she manages to stay so thin, or how much she really weighs??… *sigh…with slight drool*

My Grass Will Always Be Greener!

I though long and hard about this all day today. I have accepted that I am out 350$. That I am ok with. I would even be “ok” if I stayed the same weight I am now. BUT, I know I can accomplish more. I know I can do this on my own. I am going to do this.

I’ve given myself a goal of loosing whatever weigth I want by the end of May. That gives me two months to really work at it and get it done. I have been wanting to loose weight for years now and I am going to do it. I don’t care if I have no life and just go to the gym. I may sound a little crazy right now, but I really need to put myself first for once. Tonight, I am going to hit the gym, workout as much as I feel necessary and go home and take a hot bath and relax.

I really think that it’s all just mind over matter. I’ve had a week now without sugar or junk food. I feel great. And I am usually not a very positive person but now I feel as though I need to have a positive outlook on everything. If I can do this in two months, I will be living proof that literally anybody can do it, if they really wanted to!

Frustrated!!

When we first joined UWeight Loss, we paid our starter fee and a maintenance fee. This starter fee included our protein powder, vitamins, detox pills, pedometer, journals and hundreds of recipes. We go and weight in 3 times a week or as much as we can. We finished our detox week last night, but I’ve been calling it my crap free week at home (since I need to really kick my addiction to sugar) Anyways, we went to go weight in last night and to pick up our vitamins for this week and … there’s a hitch! We were told that the vitamins were included in the 350$ starter kit. Since that’s a great deal of money we made sure and asked them if it was included. WELL, we go there today and they tell us that no they were only free for the first week and we have to pay an additional $50 each a week for them!! That’s 100$ a week! . I was in such an outrage that I was almost crying in the room with the lady. I asked her if we had to take the vitamins and if we could do it without them and she said we have to take them to be apart of the program.

So the moral of the story, never join a weight loss place. EVER! There are not there to really help you, they just want your money! So since our Starter fee of 350$ each is non-refundable, we can only get 700$ back if we want to quit. Kyle might stay with the program since he is overweight, but I am not. I didn’t really want to join in the first place, I just really wanted to support him and his decision. He feels terrible of course since I’ve been crying all night. But I guess you learn from your mistakes and move on. We’re still going to follow most of the recipes and work out more to make up for the vitamins I guess? This is all so confusing to me. I hate it.

I really hate it.

Sunday Updates :)

Hello again my lovely friends!

Sorry I didn’t post yesterday. I was working all day at Fabutan and boy did I get a work out. In the morning I went to go catch my 8:30 bus to be at work for 9 and as I was sitting there, I just happened to look at the other bus stop that was 20 feet away from me and there I saw my bus… drive right past me.. I was freaking out!! I had to be at work at 9 and since we always work alone, I was the one who had to open the salon. Anyways, I ended up calling Kyle in a mad rage, since he was the one who told me to sit at the wrong stop. He told me he would call his mom and see if we could get her car since our beater is in the shop.. well as this was all going on I decided I was going to walk (I am very stuborn) I was not going to wait, but walk the entire way. (It’s like a few miles..lol) and by the time they came and found me walking I was 3/4 the way there.. I am a very fast walked when I’m in a pissy mood. lol But it all worked out, I made it with a minute to spare. πŸ™‚ I’m a little crazy I know.

Anywhoo.. On a good note, I received an award today!! It’s the Sisterhood Award thanks to my good friend Rudy and her GREAT blog, Completely Delicious Life. So I want to pass this award along to 3 of my favorite blogs, which I read daily of course!! πŸ˜‰

Major Temptation Straight Ahead!

Oh Crap..OH CRAP… HOLY CRAP!!!

I totally forgot about my plans for tonight. It’s Kyle’s best friends birthday and the lucky guy is turning 26 (?) I’m horrid, I know. I can never remember how old people are. I have so many friends that are all different ages so it’s like impossible to remember them all.. but holy crap.

We are all supposed to meet at Dylan O’Conner’s where the limo is to get us. Go to DW’s house and pick him and his wife up and then… go out for dinner. For those who have been following my blog lately or even some just finding me now (HELLO!!) I am following a diet from UWeight Loss. This is my first week and we are in detox mode. I have a strict schedule to follow, along with kyle.. and now we have a birthday dinner, and we’re not allowed alcohol! What is a girl to do!!

Would it be right to say I’m not hungry or don’t want to drink?

They are all quite heavy drinkers!! Besides I have to work tomorrow morning at 9 at Fabutan! I would never bail on someones birthday but I know I will be hungry and seeing every temptation known to man kinds.. Will I stick it out?? Will I keep eating the way I have.. or will I fail??

AAAHHHH?!?!?!?!?!?!?!? I hate times like there where you have to sacrifice something your doing for the enjoyment of others. We will see… on a good note, I will FOR SURE be taking a “before” picture of myself tonight. One with my bathing suit for Leah at Oh She Glows since I entered in her Oh She Glows “Bikini Boot Camp”. Also, a picture of me so all you lovely people can really see what I look like..:)

Hope you all have a great afternoon, I’m headed for my weigh-in. Hopefully I lost another pound or so.. *wish me luck* and talk to you tonight…. lata gatas!
