So, you may now call me Brandi!! Yay!!
Now for some bad news, at least for me. I started the Transform Your Body challenge at the beginning of June, unfortunatley this ENTIRE month decided to become so flippin busy for me that I have not had time for it really. All the weight that I was starting to lose during the month, welp, I stepped on a scale today and it has all come back… and then some. Back to a hefty 230 again. All I can say is $%@^&!*%^&?!!!!!
My schedule is all kinds of effed up at the moment. Class form 2pm-6pm and then work from 7pm to 3am. I try to hit the gym at 5:30am, but I usually fall asleep before that!! I try to get up in the afternoon, but that never seems to work. It just sucks. I am hoping after the new casino opens I can actually get a FULL day off, no class, no work, just a sit back, relax and go workout for a bit day. Ah, that would be nice!
Hoping that I can really buckle down in July and get going. That will only leave me a month to get in shape, but I have the faith that my fat ass can do it! It may not be the great results that I would have had with 2 months under my belt, but oh well. Any good results are all I want!
The only good news that I have actually been able to break myself of some bad habits!! Instead of drinking cokes and all that fun stuff, I now only drink water and juice!! I allow myself one 8oz soft drink a day, just like my mom did to me when I was young! I have found myself actually not wanting them as much, thank God! They almost taste too sweet now.
When I would get off work I would ALWAYS want a huge meal. I have now limited myself to 1/2 cup yogurt with some organic granola mixed in, and a bowl of fruit. Mostly green and red grapes, strawberries and blackberries, with a side of banana. You can imagine how shocked I was that this actualy filled me up!!!
Just happy that I have been making little improvments here and there. Really hoping that I can get back on tack after next week and get my butt going again! Will try to post again soon, but no promises. I may go MIA again, who knows around here. LOL
Good bye anonymity! Welcome to the world of identification, BRANDI! 🙂
Visiting from the Lady Blogger Society Tea Party.
Visiting from Lady Bloggers today!!! Good for you for continuing to try to live a healthier life. I struggle every day with trying to make healthier choices….it’s hard but when I eat crap I feel like crap and when I eat something I know is good for me I feel so much better. Love that you write about your journey….it’s nice to have the support and ideas of others!
Congrats! Good to know that you are have well adjusted with a new eating lifestyle. Its really difficulty, and you should be proud that you’re few of the ones who have actually continued living a healthy lifestyle…. Visiting from Lady Blogger’s Social Tea Party! Happy Sunday!
Good for you – it can be hard to let everyone know exactly who you are in this “inter-verse” Now, as hypocritical as that may sound for me to say that I decided to post this comment under my real name and real account as opposed to my newly started mommy-aimed site and pen name.
This is the first time visiting your site and I found it from this weekend’s tea party. I look forward to following your blogs as I used to be as Skinny Bitch – then had my wonderful daughter and then karma caught up to me. Effin’ eh!
Visiting from LBTP, nice to meet ya Brandi! Hang in there, once you get a good routine going, you’ll get where you want to be!
I wish I was comfortable enough to not use my pen name! I am glad I stopped by from TLBS!!!
I started off using an old nicknane, so that I could write what I wanted without anyone (my mother in law) knowing about it. But she is incredibly snoopy, and went through my browser history (going through 58 blogs and sites to find mine- I counted), and was incredibly offended that I would be that open to the world.
I learned that if people are determined, it’s almost impossible to keep a blog a secret. Or maybe I should have just deleted my browser history. Either way, the world knows my name, and I am no longer allowed to swear on my blog.
If you get a chance you should stop by and check out the strollers at The Toddler Warehouse. They have a huge variety of jogging strollers that have really helped me get the pounds off. Hope it works for you and keep up the good work!
