Goals.

Goals.
We all have them.
It's how I went from this...
to this...
over about a 15 month span.
I reached for things I once used to think would NEVER be attainable for me.
Me?  Run a mile?
Psshhhhhhh
Me life weights?
Psshhhhhhh
Me lose 100+ pounds?
Psshhhhhhh
Me be a MILF?
Psshhhhhhh
Okay well that last one is just being funny but I do feel pretty damn awesome most days.
So a few new goals for the next six months or so.
I am running the Thanksgiving Day 10k Race on Thanksgiving Day
I want to be 15? by my doctor's appointment November 21st.
Lose weight over the holidays not gain {I did it last year so I know I am able}
Possibly run the Heart Mini Half in March.
Definitely running the Flying Pig Half in May.
Be at the top weight of my BMI by May 1st.
Be swimsuit ready by May 1st which means I want to see definition that I have never seen before.
I posted this picture on Facebook/IG yesterday.

Okay so all this BMI got me to thinking and doing some research, etc. etc. etc. etc. {I should totally stay off the WebMD but that's another story for another day...} Anyways, according to the BMI for my height and age and blah blah blah I... should weigh anywhere from 104 to 141. Can y'all imagine me at 104? I can't at all because I wouldn't have a pulse... LOL Seriously! It's never going to happen. I do have a goal of hitting that top number though. I still can't get those damn doctor's words out of my head that 175 "might" just be MY number. No doctor... no no no no no! My weight fluctuates SO STINKING BAD. This past weekend I was at 160 and I weighed myself yesterday and I was 167 yet I felt thinner and people were commenting on how much thinner I look. WEIRD! So I promised myself that I am breaking up with the scale until my November 21st doc appt. I am literally taking that shit up to my Granny's and making her hide it for the next month and if you think I am kidding then you don't know me. My newest goal is to be 140 by this time next year. Fit and toned is where it's at. Maybe I won't get there maybe I will?! You will just have to stick around and find out... I do know this... Hard work pays off and I feel better this year than I did at this time last year...
Oh and my goal by November 21st if you were wondering is to see 15? on the doctor's scale. We all know doctor's scales are bastards so wish me luck!
After some comments being thrown around, etc. I think I am going to start a private Facebook group for all of you that want to try to obtain similar goals as I do by May 1st.
It would be a way to hold yourself accountable and get the support from others you deserve.
Who knows maybe even make a real life bestie along the way?!  =)
If you are interested and are on Facebook let me know!
I am still trying to get my girl Darci to come up with a name but if you think of something and want to pass it along don't hesitate to do so.
I AM TERRIBLE WITH NAMES!
Haha I laughed too hard at this :)
PS IF YOU ARE STILL READING DID YOU SEE THIS YESTERDAY?
LITERALLY CRIED.
OH AND I HAVE A NEW FAVORITE SONG!

  6. Such an inspiration you are. Excited to start this next chapter with you and make some friends along the way! I’m not a very creative person, but I’ll give it a shot…. how about “Fit, Fabulous & Free”? Because we are obviously working on our fitness and getting into the best shape possible. Because we are feeling fabulous along the way and lastly because we want to be free of the extra weight and struggles that come along with it. It’s about being the best we can be and finding happiness in our own skin. Anywho…. Just my 2 cents for the day. Look forward to reading other suggestions.

  10. you are gettin it girl! you look amazing, too. i didn't comment on the photo you posted on ig about someone thinking you are fishing for compliments but i just wanted you to know, that as a total stranger, i don't think that's what you are doing AT ALL. nowadays i swear, people can't just be happy for someone else. clearly, you are proud of yourself (you should be) and there's nothing wrong with that.
