I HAVE! I am lingering around 164 and the scale is not moving! NOT AT ALL! (It makes me so mad!) I have been working out 5-6 days a week, alternating between circuit training and running and it still is NOT MOVING! I have been watching my food intake and alcohol as well (really hard to do with it being summer time!) I am trying hard not to get discouraged. I am goign to keep going, maybe change it up a bit, add more calories then take some away. There is no exact science to weight loss (unfortunately- but whoever makes a skinny pill one day will be a RICH woman!!!) It's not easy and this week has been very discouraging, but I know if I keep going, keep trying, it will MOVE one day- sooner than later I hope! I can't give up and neither should you!

It's not all about being SKINNY!

This is so true! Just a couple days ago, an older fried of my family's had a heart attack. It made me stop and think. Exercise is not just about being skinny, it's not about how you look in a bikini, if you have cellulite, if you like the number on the scale or not. It is about being HEALTHY! It is about wanting to live a long life, be there for your kids, your grandkids.... it is about making better choices, feeding your body what it needs instead of what you crave. I want to live a long time. I haven't even gotten married or had kids yet. I have a lot to live for. I want to make better choices so that I will be here 20, 30, 40, 50 years from now. Every day we make choices. Unfortunately for our friend, he chose to eat unhealthy foods, smoke daily, and drink too much. This caused 100% blockage and a heart attack, followed by emergency surgery. I hope it opens his eyes to what life is all about. Just like if you mistreat material things, they will break- same with our bodies... if we abuse them and fill them with bad things and never exercise, what do you expect to happen? I am making a promise to myself today to make healthier choices for my future. :) Health is really important. What do you think?

It's been ALMOST a MONTH! oopsy!

May was a very busy month for me. I had all kinds of things going on at work (I am a teacher), I had my birthday, I went on that trip to Canton, and Memorial Day weekend of course. It was busy and I didn't always do my best with eating and drinking. I had a great time though and I have maintained my weight. This summer my big plans are to keep it going and for sure maintain, if not lose some more of this jiggle before I go on the trips I hope to have planned. It's all about moderation. You can eat or drink anything in moderation. It is also important to keep going! Dont' give up and let yourself go, because you think "what's the point?". That's how we all end up fatter than we want to be in the first place. Keep trying, make better choices, remember moderation, and always exercise- if not for the sake of being skinny, then for the sake of your health. It makes you feel amazing as well. Fingers crossed this will be the first summer that I don't end up looking like a beached whale! hehe
