Well, last week was .... not the best. I didn't have a loss, but I kinda expected it. I hadn't been to the gym and I went off the deep end with eating off plan. It did show me that I can't for one second let my guard down. So, I started fresh and I'm back on plan. I WILL NOT GIVE UP! I brushed the dirt off and got myself back in the game.
I realized I need to set some new goals. Goal #1: Reach 292 lbs by 5/23. That is next Wednesday. I ordered a bunch of Mary Kay and will give it to myself when I reach that goal. The reason I chose this number is because that is my lowest weight since during my pregnancy with Brayden (who will turn 7 on June 10th) Goal #2: Reach 273 lbs by 6/24. That is the day of my family reunion. That weight is one pound less that my weight at my first Dr.'s appointment when I was pregnant with Brayden. I had originally thought it would be neat to reach that weight by his birthday but setting that goal, I'm afraid, would be setting myself up for failure.
I went to the gym today for the first time in several days. It felt good! I rode the expresso bike and beat my ghost!! I'm excited for next week, I work evenings so I'm going to go to the two Group Ride classes next week!
I have had a ton of things going on in the last two weeks! I've been thinking about all the tings I want to blog about! My friend gave me several pair of her old workout pants that she has "outgrown" ...so awesome, since I only had two ...one that I like to wear to the gym. Now I have options! haha! My mom bought me two new pairs of jeans. My old ones were very worn out and she refused to patch them anymore. I didn't really want to buy new jeans yet but I'm glad she offered. It worked out perfectly because they just so happened to be having a big sale! AND... I was able to buy them in a size smaller than I thought I'd be buying! I started my journey wearing a size 28. My size 26 jeans were getting big on me so I figured I'd be getting a size 24 ... the same size of the shorts I bought and wear. When I got there, the jeans I used to get were not being made anymore and they now make these tighter tummy technology jeans. The sales lady said that most people have to buy a size smaller... and I did! My jeans are both a size 22!
This last weekend I was at my friend Andrea's wedding. It was a beautiful weekend! I thought it was awesome that I had reached my goal and my dress fit nicely. When I bought it, it was tight but it fit well at her wedding. I felt pretty and not really too self conscious. I loved how my hair was done... I'm going to try it myself sometime. Which brings me to my next topic... I think I'm turning into a girl! LOL! I mean... I just bought a bunch of makeup and am excited to get it! I wear makeup sometimes... like when I go out with friends or other special occasions. I don't wear it on a daily basis. I would like to, though. I think I look nice with makeup on. I also have been watching hair tutorials on a blog a friend showed me. I think losing weight and gaining confidence and self respect has inspired me to want to make myself look more beautiful.
I will be back tomorrow (hopefully) with some pictures!!
