Weekly Goals Link Up


Operation Skinny Jeans

This weekend I ate like a pregnant lady, so I'm over it and moving on!! I was too stressed out last week to post my weekly goals, but this week is a new week and I have 1.5 days left of school!! Can I get a whoo whoo!?! Anyone who is a teacher feels my pain right now. Kids are crazy. I'm crazy. I need a break!!

Anyway, on to my weekly goals.

Goal One: As part of the 10 week challenge our goal is to TRACK, TRACK, TRACK! That is my main goal! Tracking is huge! Plus I can't decide whether to cancel my weight watchers subscription or not, so this will definitely let me know if I need to keep it or can just track calories with MyFitnessPal.

Goal Two: I missed out on last weeks mini challenge which was to drink water so that is goal two this week. DRINK, DRINK, DRINK, CHUG, CHUG, CHUG! Less soda and more water!

Goal Three: Get my house cleaned!! My daughter turns 2 next Monday, and her birthday party is this Saturday so I have to get my house in order.

It's summertime people so let's kick it in gear! It's time to change our lives and feel better about ourselves.

White Shorts


So there is roughly two weeks till my daughter's 2nd Birthday, and I want to be under 200 pounds!! I also REALLY  want to wear my favorite pair of white shorts that haven't fit since I got married in 2008. So my goal is to do a low carb/no sugar cleanse for the next two weeks to hit that goal. I'm hoping that by making good food choices and exercising I will be able to make this happen.

Here is my plan of action:
Breakfast:
  Make Egg Muffins to eat for breakfast.

Snack:
  Almonds

Lunch:
    Either Lean Cuisines or leftovers. I also might eat salad.

Snack:
   Grapes (even though these aren't on the low carb/low sugar South Beach diet, I feel like they are ok for me to eat.)

Dinner:
   Low Carb which will include green beans, chicken, salad, mashed cauliflower, tilapia, and possibly lean hamburger meat.

Snack: Yogurt

I will try to post my recipes and pictures, because hopefully that will keep me accountable. I also REALLY want some new clothes from Kiki La'Rue and that is one of my weight loss rewards if I get under 200 pounds!

15 pounds people!! I can do this! I will do this! I will not give up! I will change my life, and my daughter's future!

The BIg Fat Ugly Addiction

First things first, I was too busy/sleepy to post for the Weekly Challenge link-up which I am super mad at myself for.  I will be back on the bandwagon next week!

Second thing, I have an addiction. Food! I imagine myself skinny, and where I will be by a certain date, yet for some reason I'm doing nothing to help that along the way. I'm tired of being fat, yet I ate oreos today. I'm tired of being fat, yet instead of going outside and running on this beautiful day I really just want to take a bath. I know I can do it, but for some reason I keep making excuses - too stressed out, too tired, too busy, etc..

I have lost weight before, I have eaten low carb before, I have ran before. So what is my problem!?  Last weeks challenge from the 10 Week Challenge over at Operation Skinny Jeans was to find your motivation, and honestly I'm not sure. I want to be able to buy cute Kiki La'Rue clothes, I want to be able to run a 5k, I want to be alive to see my daughter grow up, yet apparently none of these things are good enough motivators.

I went to the chiropractor Monday and they did a progress report on my neck. Part of that includes stepping on a scale that calculates your BMI, weight, water consumption, and how old your body is. The doctor looked at me and said, "How old are you?" "25", I replied. She said, "Did you know this scale says that your body feels like a FORTY year old!!" Honestly I was shocked, but not really shocked. I thought about the Biggest Loser show where they tell contestants stuff like that and they cry or breakdown. My reply, "probably because I'm overweight." I then went home and ate Mexican food. I need a wake up call!! I need to find my motivation!

My goal this week is to find my motivation, meal plan, and get the crap over myself and to stop being selfish about my weight, because honestly me being fat is me being selfish. It's about me caring more about myself than the other people around me who are being effected.

Finish the Sentence Linkup with Jake and Holly

button
 
Linking up with Jake and Holly today for Finish the sentence..
 
Unlike my sibling (that I love very much)..  I got common sense. I love this girl like I love my daughter, but seriously sometimes I wonder how we were both born from the same parents. True Story - She calls me crying after leaving work because she can't remembered if she locked the door. So I said, "Are you still there?" Her reply, "Yes." Sooo why don't you go back and check the door!?! Come on now!!
 
My best friend says.. 
 
People call me.. I love it when you call me big poppa.. Throw your hands in the air if your a true playa'  Oh wait..
 
I most often dream.. that I am a Real Housewife, with lots of money, and a super rocking job where I get to do whatever I want and wear whatever I want. Hey we can dream right!?
 
The best part of my day...

I REALLY don't understand .. all this internet blog drama! For real girls, are we in high school? There are some mean people out there who hate on good people for no reason. It's crazy ridiculous! Get over yourself mean people!

I get really annoyed.. when I'm finally trying to relax in the bathtub and read all my favorite blogs and my husband comes in to talk. Am I the only one that just needs some alone time!?

There's nothing like a.. good bubble bath!! See above. I am in LOVE with my bath time. It's the second best part of my day.

Lately, I can't get enough..  BRAVO and Andy Cohen! I love all those Real Housewives, Married to Medicine, the list goes on and on. I could probably watch that channel all day long if I was given the time.

One thing I am not.. Is rich. Sad day! :(

I spent too much money on... So this one time I went to a wedding show while engaged. I got a phone call from someone after the show that said if you went to this pots and pans demonstration they would give you a free 3-day 2-night vacation stay with no obligation to buy. Well let me just tell you the food they cooked on those pans was FREAKIN' amazing! BEST CHICKEN I HAVE EVER TASTED. Needless to say we spend $3,000 on pots and pans. BUT they have like a 3 generation guarantee or something.. So ashamed!!

I want to learn.. how to get skinny while eating Taco Bell. Remember when they had the drive thru diet for half a second!?!

If I ever met Skinny Meg in real life, I would buy her a drank!!

I can't stop.. drinking diet coke. It is the only thing besides coffee that gets me through my day with my 22 lovelies.

Never have I ever bought Mt. Dew in a public place where people know me. I have a theory about people who drink Mt. Dew (even though I SECRETLY love it!!)

Reese Witherspoon..
 You are a big deal girl! If I was rich and famous I would pull that line all the time, "Do you KNOW who I am??" I'm the fun fat chick and this is going to be all over the news!

Weekly Goals Link-Up


Linking up Operation Skinny Jeans to talk about my weekly goals again. But first a recap of last weeks goals.
Goal one was to work out at least four times, which was an epic fail. I have severe allergies and by the time I got home from school every day I thought I was going to die. In hindsight, I guess I should have walked on the treadmill, but the week is over so whatever.
Goal two was to lose 2 lbs. I am happy to report that I BLEW this out of the water! I lost 6.4 pounds!! Now I have been sick because of my allergies so since Friday I have pretty much only ate grapes and chicken noodle soup broth, so I expect next week to be totally different.
Goal three was to do something non diet related and give myself a manicure. Again, I have felt like crap all week so I didn't get this done.
I am currently laying in bed typing this because I had to stay home sick, so hopefully these new meds kick this sinus infection to the curb so I can get back to life.


Operation Skinny Jeans

Now for this weeks goals
Goal 1: Work out at least 4 times. It's currently Tuesday so hopefully I can get this done!!
Goal 2: Lose two pounds - I want to keep losing two pounds a week for the rest of the 10 week challenge.
Goal 3 : Do my hair daily - that will depend on whether I get better sooner rather than later.

Our challenge this week from the 10 Week Challenge is to find our inspiration. Be looking for my blog about my inspiration coming up later this week!

Stay healthy ya'll and hopefully the weather will start cooperating here in Missouri.

Currently

Well here in Bipolar Missouri it's SNOWING!!! There is a winter weather advisory out! This is just crazy. I have been preparing for summer by getting all my summer scents ready for my house. (I'm OBSESSED with scentsy!!)

So all my new summer scents are helping my dream of beaches, even though it's 32 degrees outside.

Needless to say the 10 Week Challenge with Operation Skinny Jeans Week 1 has been a challenge. I am SUCH a stress eater, and I have had the most stressful week at school.

Monday: I did awesome!! 12 points under my weight watcher points goal and I refrained from eating the DELICIOUS disgusting Mint Chocolate Chip Klondike Bar that was in the freezer.

Tuesday: I did ok. I leave the house early and I have to eat in the car, so I didn't get a good breakfast in and was starving by lunch. Then the lunch ladies fixed my favorite meal Taco Salad!! WHoop Whoop for some Elementary school food. I got home with the best of intentions to eat good, and my husband wanted Mexican. So I got fajitas, but only ate one shell and like half a basket of chips. (Mexican food is another crazy obsession of mine.)

Wednesday: Oh I totally forgot about the horribleness I induldged in until I started to write this... BURGER KING!! Oh boy, I digress because I would rather not even think about the 1,200 calorie DINNER I consumed.
 
 
Thursday: I think I ate a good lunch, but I'm still struggling with breakfast. I need some really good ideas!! Someone let me know what you eat on the run!! I cooked BBQ chicken, Mac and Cheese, Green Beans, Cottage Cheese, Cucumbers and Onions, and Rolls. It was good, and not to dense calorie wise, because I just had a little bit of everything.
 
Friday: I woke up with a horrible sore throat. I'm still pretty sure I'm dying. So I haven't had much of an appetite. I had some grapes and then tomato soup for dinner.
 
Good News: Tomorrow is a new day, and I have Saturday and Sunday to get my rear in gear to make sure I hit that goal of losing 2 pounds this week.
 
Bad News: My food choices are really poor. I need to get better!
 
It's the freakin' weekend ya'll so have you some fun!
