Things Just Got Real

Things Just Got Real

Happy Friday Night!
So this challenge has been fun and I swear just the fact that we have shown up most days in this extremely long challenge says SOMETHING.

………but for me. Things just got real.

So pretty! Yeah it doesn’t fit. 

I am in a wedding in October and I tried on my dress today. As you know, I have lost over 50 pounds but today I realized that I still have quite a bit of work ahead of me because the dress would not zip up!

I did not tell the bride and I’m not going to tell her because she’s stressed out enough as it is. You bridesmaids that are on social media and reading this DO NOT TELL RHONDA.

I have 4 months to fit into this thing. Asylum starts tomorrow.

Ladies, who’s ready to kick things into high gear?

Questions:

Have you ever bought something that you had to lose weight to fit into?

Did you make the weight?

Have a great weekend yall and stay tuned for the zipping of the dress!

Lean, Mean, and Squeaky Clean Challenge – May 23, 2017

Hey hey!

This post is going to be super short and sweet due to the fact that I am now behind because I had an ocular migraine today. Have any of you experienced them? They are so strange. They don’t hurt that bad but I see this sunburst looking thing out of one eye. Like when you look at the sun and then look away. It’s frustrating because I can’t look at any sort of device until it passes!

Anyway, I hope you all had a great day and let’s power through this month!!!

Lean, Mean, and Squeaky Clean Challenge!

Maybe one day this week we can give Anne’s workout a shot! Thanks for this Anne!

Lean, Mean, and Squeaky Clean Challenge – This Is Important

Lean, Mean, and Squeaky Clean Challenge – This Is Important

Happy Monday ladies!

Ok it’s the 22nd. This has been the longest challenge ever but we have almost exactly one month left. We will get through this! Haha! And let’s make this last thirty or so days the BEST EVER.

Lean, Mean, and Squeaky Clean Challenge! THIS IS IMPORTANT

Today I woke up feeling puffy and fluffy and pretty unmotivated. I totally let last week get the best of me. Last week I felt like I was falling off the deep end pretty much everyday. Somedays I didn’t eat enough, somedays I ate too much. This morning I just didn’t feel good.

THIS IS THE TIME THAT WE HAVE TO DO WHAT WE DON’T WANT TO DO.

When you are unmotivated, you have to get up and do SOMETHING that is propelling you forward.

So I worked out. Why did this need to be done?

Because I have postpartum depression and exercise in medicine. Because I am best for my family when I have a healthy mind and body (and of course spirit first). Because exercise gives me energy for the whole day! Because exercise regulates my hunger to keep me from eating more than I need to eat which in turn drains my energy. Because once the workout is done, I will have accomplished something and the feeling of accomplishment is awesome.

A workout is SO much more than we give it credit for.

This is how we need to think of exercise (mostly taking to myself here). We brush our teeth, we get dressed, we exercise! Exercise is just as important as the first two. We ALL brush our teeth and get dressed for the day. But we do neglect from time to time (or all the time) something that is even more important!

I know you ladies that comment on here keep your workouts as a high priority and I am so thankful to hear from you all the time! You are my rubber bands. When I fall off the wagon, you pull me back in. I love you my beautiful rubber bands! Haha! Thank you!

Here’s today’s food and this morning’s mood lifting workout!

Haha! I love how I can’t even smile. I just can’t get into the fresh face! And it’s like my skin wants the makeup on. I feel greasy without it.
Oh and it looks like I had two dinners and maybe I did. I was really hungry around 3:30 so I had veggies and rice and then for actual dinner I had tofu and rice. It’s a lot of food but I had enough containers for it so it’s all good!

Questions:

How has exercise changed you life?

How does exercise NEED to change your life?

What did you eat today?

What did you do for exercise?

Hope you all are starting this week out with a blast!
