Fit Mission

So I am starting a new series I won't post on it regularly but more when I feel the need to vent about it or just need some encouragement.

I have been on a mission to get more fit, you know get rid of my muffin top, 10 years later I cannot blame it on my twins. And as much as I would like to I can't blame it all on genetics either, it is me I am a food gorger? Not sure that is entirely the word I am looking for I love food though truly love it, chocolate, pasta, sweet salty, I love food and I have a very hard time not eating it. Even though most of the time I notice I am not hungry.  So my journey started with the fact that if you have seen my hubby he is handsome but also he is in great physical condition. The difference between the two of us he works in construction all day long and I work behind a desk, oh and he has metabolism that is off the charts.  So I go to the gym and I do Jillian Michaels and I was noticing a difference but then it always seems that as soon as I get in a routine, rhythm with working out I get sick, I mean really world could I just stay healthy for a couple of months I mean no colds would be terrific. OK enough moaning and groaning, I realized that I have to watch my eating more if I am going to lose this muffin top. With me it is not about losing weight so much as getting my mid section in some other shape, round isn't bad but I am hoping for more of an oval shape. So I started using the Myfitnesspal app on my phone and now I know why I haven't been losing inches because when you add up all that food I eat it goes over the calories and so on and so forth. Well on these posts I am going to keep myself accountable. I will share my down days, up days and everything in between. So an update...

Workout: Well it is a new week which means I can workout or not workout but I chose to workout, if only I could drag my butt out of bed early in the morning and just get it over with going to bed at 11pm or midnight is not helping my progress in this area, but I have not given up either. I just hit snooze one too many times :) Anyone want to call me around 5:15 and get my lazy butt motivated?

Eating: I am doing much better in this area, still have days I go over the calorie allowance that the program gives me but I am eating much healthier and paying more attention to if I am hungry or not, progress will be made :)

I am going to get there and that Maurices gift card I got for my birthday is going to be used I found the cutest strapless dress I am ordering :) Yeah!!

  1. You can do it girl. I can't wait to read about your journey.

    I love food, way too much. I live in the South and we all LOVE our comfort foods. Pasta, bread, rice salty foods and sweets as well. I just can't give it up! :P

    PS. I got my box. I'm about to post about it! ;)

  2. Brook - if this posts twice - it is my silly computer. I used to use Myfitness Pal and loved it. I switched over to Sparkpeople in January and have lost 14 pounds and about 10 inches. It is kind of like a Myfitness Pal and facebook combined - I really need the accountability and challenges (well yeah and encouragement) of others.

    Kind of cool we are on a similar journey with the distance between us. Maybe next visit we can work out together!

    I have a 30 year reunion to get fit for!
