Wow It's been over a year...

Gees time flies when you're having fun!!

I cannot believe I haven't written here in over a year! and yes I'm still struggling with my weight! I was reading back on some of my posts and it's funny how some things never change...

So a bit of an update...

I went to see a Naturopathic Doctor!! I absolutly loved my first experience!! She went through everything with me starting with my history down to personality! I told her my main reason for my visit was because of my weight and also allergies! after an hour and a half consult she put me on a detox for 21 days! I completed the first 21 days (without coffee, sugar, wheat, anything processed, dairy, alcohol etc.) WITHOUT CHEATING!!! and now I just continued to eat the same way... (healthier) I have lost just under 10 pounds and I feel great... MY biggest concern I thought would be cutting out coffee, but to tell you the truth I don't miss it!! I wont even go back to it, and it's been over a month!! I've been cheating here and there lately on weekends (Like last nights Dairy Queen blizzard mmmmm) but all in all I'm doing really well...

I'm still following WW at the same time! not to the tee (like tracking) but at this point it's almost like WW is second nature to me because I can calculate the points in my mind and work through it without stressing over it... I've been on WW most of my life, I'm just so used to it!!

Ash and I are still going strong it's been 3 and a half years and we've been talking a lot about getting married and buying a house! so I guess I'm just waiting for my ring!!

Good friends of ours (Ranier and Linda) are getting married in Cuba this summer!! Ash is best man and I am a bridesmaid! we leave Aug. 28th, which gives me 12 weeks to get in shape!! I will not go to Cuba feeling uncomfortable!!! My Goal is to loose at least 15 more pounds from now untill then!!

Excercise Excercise Excercise!! Always been my downfall!! so hard to get back into and not my favorite thing in the world!!

So My Goals from now untill Cuba!
1.) Stay on track
2.) 30 Day Shred at least 3 times a week
3.) Gym 5 times a week (Carido + Weights)
4.) Loose 15 pounds!

And there it is peeps! my update!! Hoping to keep up with the posting!

Happy Friday?? not so much for me!
Today is my last day at my job! I'm pretty sad but I think I'm hiding it well! I can't believe that I will be unemployed on Monday! This is sooooooo not like me! I've always been one to have like literally 3 jobs on the go! and now I don't have 1??? I'm pretty stressed out but I have an appointment at a recruitment agency on Monday and hopefully they'll be able to find me something soon! I've also applied to many company's and I guess it's just all a waiting game from here!

I've been OP All week!! I'm very happy about it and feeling good! Last night I went for a walk because it was sooo beautiful outside... I had to meet Ash at the bank so I took a huge detour and met him there... it was only about a 40 minute walk but still better then nothin right??

Tonight I babysit Charlie (for those of you that don't know he is a baby that I used to be a nanny for) I'm hoping that when I get there he will be fed and ready to go for a walk! they're house backs out on to trails and they are sooo peaceful and so great to get in a nice walk... If he isn't fed then we may not have time to go for a walk... I will put him to bed (@ bed time) and hop on their treadmill!

Other then that there isn't to much planned for the weekend.... I guess just some relaxing and job hunting! Hope everyone's doing great!!

Have a great weekend!!

hAppy hUmP dAy!

Good morning fellow bloggers! It's Wednesday, the sun is out and I'm feelin good!! LOL Honestly the Sun does wonders for me, I'm in a much better mood! I'm excited to get out and goin! and i think it helps a bit with motivation!

So I walked to the gym like I said I was going to (Sticking to the plan!) and when I got there I did some weights... I'm at GoodLife and they have a nice little set up... they have numbered some weight machines from 1 - 8 and kind of made it like a little circuit, on each machine it tells you what muscles you're working and they have pasted a little blurb/tip on them... apparently your supposed to do only one set of 8 - 12 reps on each machine to see any results... I did 2 sets of 12 reps on each machine, which took me 30minutes! I really feel it in my muscles this morning!! It's a great little workout!
After pumpin some iron, There were no treadmills left so I hopped on the last Elliptical that was left and had a nice 20 minute workout, I could have gone for longer but I hadn't eaten anything before I left to the gym and I was starving!! so I didn't want to push it, besides I still had to walk home!!

So to sum it all up
10 minute walk to the gym and 10 minute walk home = 20 minutes + weight machines 30 minutes + a great 20 minute Elliptical workout = AN AWESOME WORKOUT!!!!

Other then all that fun stuff I don't have to much going on, Sandra (my cousin) came over last night to watch the Biggest Loser Finale which was sooooooo good!! I'm soo happy Ali won!! wooooHoooo GIRL POWER!!!!

Tonight I will either go for a walk or to the gym I'm not 100% sure yet, it all depends on how nice the weather is and how I feel!

Hope your all having a wonderful day!!!

i lOve sPriNg!!!

I loVe this weather! its sooo beautiful! The mornings are still a bit chilly but afternoons are fantastic!!

So last night when I got home from work I was going to go to the gym but it was soooo pretty outside and I didn't feel like staying indoors! So instead of going to the gym I went for a 40 minute moderate walk!! It felt soo great! and I could really feel it in my legs.

Tonight I think I will walk to the gym which is only about a 10 minute walk, do some weights when I get there, and then hop on the treadmill ( I want to try a run / walk ) and then walk back home. Wish me luck!

I started a calender yesterday! I got the idea from a few other lady bloggers.... I will give myself a sticker for each day I am OP, so tracking and staying within my points and exercising... So I earned 1 sticker so far!

I feel really motivated! but shhhhhhhhh I don't want to jinx it! LOL! so I won't talk about it!

Hope you all have a great day! I hope I didn't loose all my readers do to being MIA... : (

I'm sOrry ladies I've been MIA! the job fair that I was organizing was on Monday and Tuesday so I have been working like 12 hour days!!! It was very successful! We had 57 different employers, 20 different community agencies and 4000+ job seekers come through in the 2 days!! It was awesome!! and very fun! So because we have been working so hard they gave us yesterday and today off! Yesterday I stayed in bed most of the day I was sooooo exhausted!!! and today I got up went to an appointment and now I'm trying to catch up on blogs and the boards!
I haven't been terribly bad but I haven't had the time to follow the 8 Healthy Guidelines! But I'm back on track! and ready to kick April in the ARSE!
I do have a NSV! I bought a nice linen blazer type thing from Dynamite and it was a LARGE!! not an EXTRA LARGE!! WooooOOooHoOooo!!! I also had a blouse from Jacob that I had bought last year and I thought was going to be to tight!! but it fit perfectly!!
Hope everyone is doing well!! Again I'm sorry for being MIA!
Time to catch up!!

tWo bOooOoo's iN oNe dAy!!

bOoooo #1 - I worked late last night (8:30am - 7:00pm) and wasn't able to go to the gym because by the time I was off work my cousin Sandra was already waiting for me.

bOoooo #2 - After work there wasn't anything good to eat at home, so Sandra and I went to Quizno's because if we had driven to Subway we would have missed our show (Biggest Loser) when I got home and calculated the points! it brought me to -6 for the day!!! remind you it took me about an hour to find NI online for Quiznos! NEVER GOING THERE AGAIN!! I could have eaten McDonald's for God's Sake!!! (which I don't like Thank God)

But anyway! It's getting busier and busier at work for those of you who don't know I'm co-ordinating a 2 day Job fair for my company which includes 60 different companies and 20 different community agencies! It's coming up next week on Monday and Tuesday! and let me tell you! I can't wait for this to be over and done with!!!

My plan is to go to the gym tonight no matter what! and to stay OP like I have been!

Have a great day my Lovelies!
