As another chapter ends a new one begins on this journey of mine to become a healthier version of me...

Another Wednesday already?
Seriously y'all my brain just CANNOT wrap itself the idea that we are already 8 days into May.
This past week has been a game changer for me.
After reading Erin's post from last week and getting connected with Jess for the 10 week challenge my head felt more clear than it had in weeks.
I had really been struggling.
Sure my workouts were on point but my eating SUCKED.
I will be the first to admit it.
So my weight was just hanging out.
I was also not posting my weigh-ins on here because I had broke up with my scale.
Which I think for me may have been the wrong thing to do.
Am I going to weigh myself errryday???
NO!
Just every Wednesday now.
I am officially making that my weigh in day!
So I did weigh myself last Thursday night for a local Biggest Loser challenge I am doing.
I won't lie...
I cried like a big ol' fat sissy.
I was sad.
How in the hell did I let myself go?
15 pound gain in three months.  I thought I was over this hurdle.
But I sucked it up and put my big girl panties on.
Last Thursday night I weighed in at 178.8
I know I can here your GASP's already.
I am happy to report though that after committing myself to the 10 week challenge with Jess and gang I weighed in this morning at 174.0
BOOM.
 
What am I doing differently you ask?
I drink water all day errryday.
I just don't drink enough of it.
I try but let's be honest I sit at the front desk at a law firm so if I have to go potty somebody has to come relieve me.
I hate that.
I feel guilty.
I am slowly but surely getting over that.
If ya gotta go you gotta go right?
So I upped my water intake.
Not sure how many ounces but I know it's a lot.
 
I also am eating a hell of a lot cleaner.
Strawberries won over Doritos Monday night in case you missed that.
 
Oh and my half marathon training has officially started.
Yes, it's early.
I actually stole Kira's idea for my schedule getting myself prepared for this half so if you would like a copy let me know.
It starts out with a 10k training program that turns into the half training.
I am pumped.
 
I have just been dealing with so much negativity IRL that honestly it has been bringing me down.
I emotionally eat and I will be the first to admit it.
But it stops here and now.
I am tired of self sabotaging.
...and when I do that the evil is what wins.
 
So this is a good post compared to my other weeks.
I have a 10k under my belt and life is pretty damn good.
Now go twerk it and burn those calories ladies!
PS how can you not laught at this?!  HE IS HILARIOUS!
 
PSS did you vote for me yet?!  If not go HERE and do so now!  I will LOVE YOU FOREVER MMMMK?!
 
PSSS If you haven't done so yet go HERE and check out my home girl Ashley's Advocare site.  I am personally starting the 10 day cleanse on Monday.  You know what that means???
I am drinking beer every day until then...
=)

  6. Don't be too hard on yourself. Staying motivated is a huge hurdle that you're always having to jump. Even the best Olympic hurdlers hit and fall sometimes. Just keep running :)

    I'd love to take a look at that plan!

  17. I only weigh in once a week. I think it's important to know where you're at so tweeks can be made when you need it. I'm doing a 5k Saturday and its a color race. I'm gonna go sloooow so I can get super colored! Ha! Keep us updated on your training. Once I find a race buddy, I'll do a half. I wonder if walking is allowed, 13.1 miles is pretty dang long!

  18. Marcy, I enjoy reading your blog. You're a funny gal! Adorable kids too. To speed up your weight loss, cut out breads, pasta, rice wheat etc. Trust me. I havent been able to lose anything but I read carb revolution and protein power and I cannot believe how quick its falling off. At least try the books and try this for two weeks. I see how youre up and down all the time and I feel for ya. Read the reviews on amazon too. You will love it and after two weeks, (yes, you will feel like shit but the 1 lb a day loss will keep you going) you will be amazed.
