A Long Time Coming…

12 Comments

Hi folks! I know, I know. You are wondering “Who is this strange beast that has come up suddenly on my reading list?” Yes, I realize. I have been sporadic and gone for long periods of time, but I miss you guys. Sincerely. I am hoping you will take me back as I search to get re-motivated and tell you all about my wonderful weight loss (that has been neither wonderful or loss lately… more emphasis on the weight). During my vacation to Disneyland and getting the flu right afterwards, I managed to gain 10 pounds.

10.

Pounds. 5 weeks of work gone in 2 weeks. But, I did not get depressed my friends. No. I did not. I got motivated. I got a FitBit! I started going to the gym regularly and I made some freaking goals. My weight is currently at 188 after a week and a half of getting back on track and going to the gym 3 times a week and horseback riding 2 to 3 times a week. My Fitbit definitely helps keep me motivated and aware of my activity throughout the day. Even if I do not have a big work out, I still manage to go on walks because I want my step count to go up!

School has been busy, but I have actually been thriving in it. My grades are fairly stable, and I am looking at ending the semester with a pretty nice GPA. Also on the horizon, I am planning on having my very first show season with my horse. Hopefully everything goes well there, and it is good motivation to keep me active and working towards strengthening the bond between woman and horse. Or something like that.

For weight loss, my goal is to lose 1.5 – 2 pounds a week by Friday.

For the gym, I want to get my work out time to 50 minutes. And run 3 miles on the treadmill.

I want to stay within my calorie goal and also detox from refined sugars starting today. 

What are your plans for the week? Lets keep each other motivated!

I also plan on blogging more — so prepare yourself! The crazy may possibly be back.

  1. Nemesis!! Welcome back!! My weight has been wibbly-wobbly for some time but it’s still going down… slowly. I’m currently at 185… which means, for the first time, I’m less than you…

    Now if that isn’t motivation enough for you, I don’t know what is LOL Don’t worry… you’ll be beating me soon enough, I know that for a fact 🙂 But just let me have this moment first, okay?? 😛

    Seriously, glad to see you back… you’ll be below 180 in no time, I know it 🙂

    • Grrr! You weigh less than me?! That is definitely motivation to kick some butt this week! I have a very busy week in store for me… going to try to get a lot of exercise in and kick some massive butt! So don’t get too comfy in your limelight. :p

      It is good to be back! Hopefully this helps me stay on track!

  2. Welcome back girl 🙂 missed you. I have been doing great finally after a long road of hard work. My plans for the week is to lose more weight and enjoy myself as much as I can. xoxo

    • I missed you too! I really needed some motivation… I do my best at losing weight when I am blogging about it. Keeps me more accountable! And you can do it!

      • Yeah when I blog about it it really helps me to keep my motivation. As we both know the important thing is when we fall, we pull ourselves up again :)x

  3. Yay, I’m glad you’re back! I was wondering where you went. Ugh, I didn’t go to Disneyland or get the Flu, but I also managed to gain quite a bit in just a couple weeks, so I also made goals that so far I have been sticking to. Good luck and I know you will get right back on track!
