Hey gorgeous ladies!
I've missed you all the last few days!
The theme of this week is tests (midterms Monday, a mock exam today -don't ask- and a lab exam coming up for Friday...good lord...can we move on to next week already??)
Remember I mentioned in this post how I'd gained
about a zillion a few pounds over the holidays and attempted to get back on track via the 8 hour diet? When that failed I realized -short of a miracle- I was going to have to bite the bullet and sign up for a comprehensive diet/exercise program (I know, right? So much work!) I am so glad Revolt fitness contacted me...the timing could not have been better. And I am extra glad I decided to woman-up and join.
The Uprising started Monday with a week long sugar detox diet. Talk about a huge test of resolve!! To be honest, I can't even tell you the last time I went a whole day without chocolate. How sad is that?? It was really hard for me to say goodbye to refined carbs, you guys! #sugaraddict (I may or may not have had a little "farewell to bread" party Sunday night...)
The truth is, I appreciate my body whatever size its at, and that's ranged anywhere from 99 lbs. with hips that could cut a bish to a more-to-love 130...kind of a big difference on my 5'1" frame. Right now I'm sort of in the middle. But I'm not feeling healthy and I don't like the direction I'm headed, so I am dead set on getting fit by the time summer rolls around. Three days in, I'm doing pretty well: I've completed both workouts (ouch!!) and haven't cheated on my diet once. Not even for the chocolate-covered macadamia nuts I spotted in the pantry yesterday. Oops, just drooled a little bit on my keyboard...sorry, but I'm craving sweets like nobody's business!
To keep myself motivated and accountable throughout this whole dealy-o I'll be posting pictures here every so often...including my meh "befores." Here we go...
|Starting weight 118.5, waist 27", girls 35", junk-in-the-trunk 37.5"|
Actually, getting these pictures out in the open is less embarrassing than I expected. Truthfully, I've never been particularly self-conscious about my body at any size, which is both a blessing and a curse: it can make it really hard to see when you need to get off your keister and make some serious changes.
But I'm on the right track now, ya heard? And it's not too late to join me...the more the merrier!
Happy humpday chicas! Have a margarita
and a great big Milky Way for me today!
