But I'll take it and run with it this week to get even closer to 199!!! Ah!

Loving life right now, smiling, laughing, eating better, watching my snacking, working out like a beast. LOVE it! Life is busy, but good.

Just got done doing our weekly yoga at work for lunch, love it! I feel so amazing afterwards.

I've had some awesome NSV's lately, just haven't really posted about them yet. Last Saturday, I met up with my maid of honor and her bridesmaids for bridemaids dress shopping. We all ended up trying on the first dress and loving them. Sweet! BUT, I first grabbed an 18 because the lady said grab the size of your pants, so that's what I did, althought some 18's are loose, some are still tight, you never know. However, it was a bit loose. I was able to get on the 16 and it fit and looked fabulous! I had my mom and my MOH almost in tears. I felt so amazing, but a very unreal moment for me, I don't quite feel it yet, but it was an amazing moment. It's definitely motivation to keep doing my best, working hard and living life to the fullest.

I've been getting compliments left and right at the gym from either random people in zumba and zumba instructors to even more random people in the weights area. I love it, I just smile and say thank you.

The scale is moving again and I LOVE it. I'm so close to 199 and onederland, I'm getting very anxious about it, so I don't want to screw it up, so I really have to stayed focused from here on out and keep pushing and testing my limits. :)

Woo! Eating better and really watching my snacking last week paid off. I was at 206.6 last Sunday, so that's a 2.8 lbs. Yeah buddy!

'Nough said.

Working at Bath & Body Works tonight from 8-midnight, also worked the same last night and it kicked my ass, hopefully tonight won't be as bad. Except last night ended up working until 1:30am, that can't happen tonight b/c I have to get up for my full time at 6:30. Blah!

Ready for a new week, can't wait to keep up this weight loss and eating better and get to 199!!

Keep trucking along...

I feel much  better lately, mindset is back and it's strong! I realized I won't get anywhere fast still eating tons of sweets and making stupid decisions. One day a time. I've been feeling super motivated and loving it!

Been staying  under calories of 1200 for the past few days. I feel better already, packing my lunches as much as I can without getting bored of the same thing over and over. I made my fave chili this past Sunday (Chicken taco chili from the skinnytaste site), so that's lunch this week. I also have some really tasty hot and spicy Guss pickles for snacking (4-5 slices for 5 cals). I've been bringing my blender bottle with my Big Train Spiced Chai Latte protein powder to work (70 cals, 10p for 8 oz of water), I carry around Muscle Milk light protein bars (170 cals/15p), trying to stay away from sodas (even diet, but having one right now for some caffiene), trying to keep things simple and follow rules.

Exercise has been fantastic! Been zumba-ing all the time as usual (mostly on Tues/Thurs/Fri and sometimes the weekends) and at home (I got Zumba Core for the Xbox for xmas and I love it!), I did a new kettlebell workout dvd from Bob Harper last week, whew! Talk about soreness and feeling it! I couldn't walk right for about 6 days, haha! Good stuff. I took last week off from my Couch 2 5k program because my left knee/right groin were bothering me on my last run of Week 4 the week before. I got back at it last night for Week 5, Day 1, success! Felt pretty good and no knee or groin issues to report. :D However, the next run is a little intimidating, but I will try and if not, I will just do Day 1 over until I feel super comfortable, no shame in that. Starting Yoga at work tomorrow, super pumped about this! It's every Wednesday from 12-1, so very excited to get my zen on! Tonight = weights and zumba. I def. need to continue to build on some lean muscle, I've been slacking in that dept and not happy about it.

Not sure if I mentioned this before, but I had a fill I believe on October 17, 2012 of half a CC. Well, within 2 weeks, I was sick every single day, pretty much every meal, no matter what it was. I called to get an unfill and I got .25 out. I've been fine since, but I really haven't lost. I've been fluctuating between 205.6 and 209.2 (or something like that) since. I'm not sure what to make of this plateau, I won't lie, I've been super frustrated about, especially with the holidays, I did not do as well as I would have liked. My last weigh in was the 205 one and I weighed this past Sunday at 206.6. 1lb. gain, not as bad as I thought. I can maintain, huh? lol. Now I just need to see Onederland and get even more motivated, bring it on!! Maybe a VERY small fill on my appointment on January 23rd, maybe...

Til next time...
