New Schedules...

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
This is going to sound REALLY dramatic but I am literally penciling this post in this week.
I am NOT anywhere near used to this new schedule or job.
There is A LOT to learn and it can be really overwhelming and nerve wracking at times.
With that being said...
I ABSOLUTELY AM IN LOVE WITH MY NEW JOB!
I am so excited to learn the ends and outs and every day so far has been different.
I just have no extra time.
None.
Mornings have consisted of getting the kids ready and dropped off to where they need to go.
I go to the gym.
Workout.
Get ready.
Go to work.
Come home.
Eat dinner or run around depending on the day.
Go to bed.
Repeat.
E-FREAKN-XHAUSTED!!!

Excited for the weekend.
Ready for the weekend.
I have managed to stay on track with my eating.
Honestly you don't really sit down much at this job.
I was in class yesterday and will be today and that is the most I have sat in over a week!
We have a fridge, microwave, etc. at the office so I can bring in my own healthy foods!
Hopefully this job and new schedule will be what it takes to keep me on track and get these last pounds off of me and get me to a point where I can tone up!

No pain, no gain... #90daystilsummerchallenge

About the time you are reading this (since I am writing this today, Thursday) I am currently on the stair stepper contraption at the gym.
Probably dying and trying not to trip on my own sweat.
Contemplating if I am sane or completely insane.
One step away from feeling like my legs are going to fall off my body.
{No pain, no gain}


An InLinkz Link-up

As of today, March 21st, there are 90 days until the official start of summer. 
Where did the year go so far?
The fugggggg?!
I have always loathed this time of year.  The swimsuits, the shorts, the tank tops, all of it.  All items of clothing I love but have just never felt comfortable in.  Hell I only put on a bathing suit one time last year.  So that's kind of how this challenge came about.  I want to feel confident in all of these things that I listed above, and I want to rock the shit out of them.  So Val, Jess, and I came up with this 90 day challenge. The prize is being proud of yourself for sticking with something for 90 days. We have to hold each other accountable. Do not feel obligated to share your picture unless you want to. But please make sure you take a picture for your personal record to compare at the end of the challenge. 

So here is what you have to do:

1. Get a really small bikini. Just kidding. GET WHATEVER SWIMSUIT YOU WANT! 

2. Take a picture in said swimsuit. 

3. Work your ass off for the 90 days leading up to summer to look amazing in that swimsuit. 

We will be checking in weekly on our blogs. Feel free to check in with us weekly, bi weekly, every 30 days, whatever. We just want to help hold ourselves and others accountable until summer comes and we can rock out with our new bodies for summer in a hot new bathing suit. 
{Note:  if you do not have a blog just let us know how your doing in the comment section below and participate via The Grams #90daystilsummerchallenge}

During this challenge you can do whatever workout you would like. But you must dedicate yourself to being consistent for 90 days! 

Alright- here's mine. I WILL ROCK THIS IN 90 DAYS! 
My personal goals are to tighten up my belly, inner thighs, tone my arms up, and decrease some of that gosh forsake cellulite!
Oh and that butt in the front action I WANT IT GONE.


I am so excited to be participating in this #90daystilsummerchallenge with y'all!
There is nothing like having a bunch of amazing women to surround yourself with and support you.
WEIGHT LOSS IS HARD Y'ALL...
I mean in reality it's simple because the steps to take are pretty damn easy.
Eat good shit.
Drink the H20.
Workout.
But to actually do all those things, and together, is truthfully one of the hardest things I have ever done.
Or quite frankly, will ever do.
I am not going to be one of those people that gets to a supposed "goal weight or shape" and can stop.
Eat all da foods.
And stay the same.
I will ALWAYS have to work for it but it's what also makes it that much more enjoyable!

My plan over the next 90 days is to stick to my meal plans.
I always tend to venture away from it, and it's always at night when I have my down time.
I want all things snacky in my belly.
If I start to get this temptation I will head straight to bed.
NO if, ands, or butts (haha butts) about it!
Starting this new job will allow me an entirely new workout schedule.
Drop kids off by 6:30, head to the gym and workout for anywhere from 40 minutes to an hour, shower and get ready, head to work.
Yes, I will be part of the mornin' crew!
And I also want to try my best to commit to drinking close to, if not right at, a gallon of water a day.
I did this for the first time yesterday and honestly it was a lot easier than I thought it would be.
It may be a rocky start just for the simple fact of starting this new job but one thing is for sure.
I will remain motivated, focused, and positive for the next 90 days.
No doubting myself.
No bad attitude.
NOTHING NEGATIVE.
I know going in it is NOT going to be easy.
But knowing what my potential and end results could look like I am ready to do this damn thing!

I want to feel good in a swim suit this summer.
I want to rock those shorts I have been holding on to every summer and never had the courage to wear.
I want to feel good in tank tops and not like a chunky version of T-Rex.

Just a year ago...

Even just a year ago if I would have been put in the same situation as I was a couple of weeks ago I would have failed.
Miserably.
I would have doubted myself until the end of time, and would have NEVER made the cut.
I would have never been able to let my personality shine through now would I have been able to show the best version of myself.
I have been looking for a new place of employment for quite some time.
Getting up everyday for work and absolutely dreading it was something I did not enjoy.
Especially with having small children.
Why am I miserable AND away from them at the same time?!
Don't get me wrong...
The individuals I work with are AMAZING (Hi! Ya'll if you are reading this) but I hated my job.
When I say my brain was starting to turn to mush that is probably an understatement.
So a couple of weeks ago a job opportunity came about and I took a leap of faith.
I was confident, not to be mistaken with cocky!
For the first time in a LONG time I believed in myself.
I knew I could do it.
And I did.
A year ago it would have never happened.
I know that.
I am now ready.
I am sad to say goodbye to these people I have worked with for the past six years but incredibly blessed and ready for new adventures.
New friendships.
New opportunities.
All with the new me.

So while I am busy wrapping things up you can enjoy one last bathroom selfie of me at the old gig.
...but have no fear!
There is a new and better bathroom where I am going ;)

Water Bomb!

First and foremost don't forget about the #90daystilsummerchallenge that I am hosting with my fitness besites Val and Jess!
Starts Friday and it is going to be epic.
What better time to get into shape for summer than now with LOTS of support from other women trying to do the same thing =)


Moving along the girls from work took me to a local casino to eat at their super nice buffet.
Buffet-1
Marcy-0
Last night I realized while even as healthy as I have turned my life around I cannot be trusted at a place with no limits and super unhealthy choices.
I feel like straight ass today from having all the foods in and around my mouth.
Literally.

I have been wanting to do the Water Bomb I saw on Pinterest a while back.
Today was as good a day as ever considering I feel like a sumo wrestler today.
#justgivemeadiaper

Things have been crazy with this being my last week of work at the job.
I have had stuff going on non-stop during the day and night.
I am looking forward to Friday.
MAJOR gym workout followed by getting to spend some time with my bubby for the day!
Ain't he cute?
He is doing really well and I am excited to see where his future takes him!


This is all I got folks.
I had a dream last night I got arrested for eating too much at the buffet we went too last night.
I'm tired.

Take their breathe away...

It doesn't matter how many times you fall down...
What matters is that you get back up...
And more importantly keep moving forward.

Goodness gracious y'all know my struggles and you have seen me pick myself up more times than I care to admit.
But I just keep telling myself it's all apart of the journey.
My journey.
Nothing is going to be perfect because I am nowhere near perfect nor do I want to be.
Yesterday and last night I was going through some pretty rough things internally.
Things that made me feel a mix of emotions.
I was literally a huge ball of sad, happy, angry, relieved, etc.
Husband left for darts, kids went to bed, and I was left with the DVR and a kitchen/fridge full of treats.
Last night the treats won.
It's sad to admit but it got to the point that I finally had to shut it all down, take two Melatonin, and go to bed.
This morning I am feeling better mentally but physically I feel like a busted can of biscuits.
The difference in the old me versus the new me is today I have dusted it all off and picked myself back up.
I am moving forward and not looking back.
Old me would have chalked this up to a fail of a week and I would have tried to start it again next Monday.
Not anymore.

I refuse to let the negativity of others affect my daily life from here on out.
Period.
This has been a HUGE problem of mine.
But I think with age and the change into the person I have now become it's easier for me.
I have always been way too nice.
Cared way too much.
Let people walk all over and bully me for way too long.
I love my life.
I love people.
I seriously just want a life full of positive people, laughter, and fun.
With negativity mixed into all that there is no way that I possibly could.
Don't take away my positive attitude, I want to give it to you

In other news when I am feeling like said busted can of biscuits I like to do a #transformationtuesday post!
Happy Tuesday friends!

Are you wearing green today?

So I was originally convinced that my last week at my current place of employment would be easy peasy.
Wrong.
Apparently work don't stop y'all...
Who knew?!

Anyways this is just going to be short and sweet as I am up to my eye balls opening new files!
BLAH

It's St. Patty's Day yay!
I am wearing my green because ain't nobody got no time to get pinched.
I hope your wearing yours ;)

In other news I had a freaking amazing weekend.
Seriously so fun!

In other news no more coffee for me.
I did have a couple sips of a small one that Hubby made me this morning because I am terrified of the headaches this will cause.
But I just downed my first glass of warm lemon water and I am feeling great!

WOAH!
Where has this week gone?!
I don't know about y'all but this time change has seemed to up my spirits and make the days fly by.
