Yesterday I didn’t go to the park because of had to take care of a hair product label that needed to be created and it rained as soon as 5 o’clock hit. It’s sunny today so we’ll see if I can go skating today. Sharri says I’ve been doing good on the scale so yay for that.

  • Nutri-Grain Strawberry Harvest Bar
  • Horizon Vanilla Milk
  • Nutri-Grain Strawberry Greek Yogurt
  • Cottage Cheese
  • Kashi Roasted Almond Crunch Bar

Dinner for last night, I started to eat it before I knew it so I wasn’t able to take a picture of it but I’ll post up a Chicken and Dumpling picture that’s similar. ****takes time to look up the picture**** Ok so I tried to look up a picture and everything was soup. We didn’t have soup. We had 1 boneless skinless chicken breast and 4 small dumplings with some spinach.

Keep Going

It certainly does not happen over night. Not giving up is the key to success.  954604_612152655464022_1271774247_n.jpg 480×640 pixels

This is last night’s dinner. The meat that you see in the image was actually no good so I stopped eating it and replaced it with a cup of Bolthouse Farm’s Mango protein.

According to the app I’m using, Sparkpeople, I should be 137 right now. I don’t take what they say seriously because I’m a woman and my body fluctuate constantly. Especially on my time of the month, which was last week. It totally messed up my count. Sharri said that I was a 136.5 before it started.

I did the flat belly exercise this week and it wasn’t bad at all. I’m happy that it separates the sets for the crunches and leg raises. I can’t do the jumping jacks so I still have to come up with a alternative. We went to a park close to the house and I skated while sharri ran. We went for 3 miles before we stopped because sharri is training for a 5k she wants to do.

I’m happily keep up with my lunchboxes. They might be for little kids but they are a great way of take food with you in small portions. I love having snacks through the day and not feel hungry until I get home.

Today’s lunchbox
Horizon Vanilla Milk • Fage Total 2% Greek Yogurt • Nutri-Grain Harvest Bar • Orville Mini Bag Popcorn • Kashi Almond Granola Bar

I’m going to the park again tonight to skate. We might do 3 miles again, I don’t know. I don’t know what we are having for dinner, I will update this post tonight.

My gallery page is linked with my Instagram page. I’m not able to blog everyday like I want to but I’m constantly posting pictures of how I’m doing on my path to weight loss as well as personal pictures I would love to share with everyone.

Rained Out

Yessir! #quote #fitness #health #dowork #noexcuses #fitblr  (Taken with Instagram)

Yesterday I went over my calories but everyone can do that ever once in a while, there’s nothing wrong with that. I was planning on going to the park after work to do some walking and the fitness trail but it rained ALL DAY. So I went home after work expecting to relax a little, eat dinner and  then workout to a video on Amazon. I got the first two done but then we started watching Once Upon A Time and got sucked in lol. BTW one of my favorite shows. Seriously check it out.

Once Upon A Time Cast

So here are my numbers from yesterday and I feel a little bad about not working out because I’m over but like a said, we gotta live a little.

Here’s yesterday’s lunch box set up;

https://i2.wp.com/distilleryimage5.ak.instagram.com/e36e2da88a9011e3b70d0e419024fb7d_8.jpg

  • Digorino 200 calorie pizza
  • Nutri-Grain Strawberry Greek Yogurt Bar
  • Fage Total 0% Apple Cranberry Yogurt
  • Nutri-Grain Harvest Bar
  • Welsh’s Fruit Snack

Yesterdays for dinner I took a picture of it but it didn’t save 😦

  • White Sticky Rice
  • Steams Broccoli and Carrots
  • Pulled BBQ Chicken

For Dessert I had a So Delicious Mini Bar. They are amazing and I
recommend them for anyone who wants to still eat ice cream but are
calorie conscious.

I’m really PRAYING for no rain today so I can go to the park. I might go to the park then do a workout video at home to pick up on lost time. The
sunning is shining right now so we shall see.

No Problems

Today went pretty smoothly. There was no stress at work and I was almost able to get all the projects done. Except for the 3 prayer cards that came at the end. Ugh. Well anyway, fit wise like always, it great. I ate my snacks throughout the day.

  • NutriGrain Harvest Blueberry Bar
  • Special K Strawberry Bar
  • Welsh’s Fruit Snack
  • Fage Blueberry Acai Greek Yogurt
  • Baby Carrots

Skirt Steak Dinner

No fitness today but I will be going to the park tomorrow. I will follow the fitness trail and post pictures of some of the exercises I will do.

Feeling Good

https://i1.wp.com/distilleryimage8.ak.instagram.com/9d595ec688e911e3a7201273a5a26904_8.jpg

It’s getting hard trying to find the right title for my blog post since I’m not following any plans or programs lol. These are the numbers I received yesterday. I didn’t workout because of how low those numbers are. Some people would say that I’m doing myself an injustice for not eating so much some days. I say, if I feel good and it feels like my body is getting enough and not complaining then I must be doing something right. I’ve been taking vitamins everyday at night. I take multi-vitamins, fish oil and iron. The multi-vitamins are gummy because I hate taking horse pills, yuck.

Here’s my lunch box setup;

Lunch box setup

  • Fage Cherry Pomegranate Greek Yogurt
  • Welch’s Fruit Snack
  • Baby Carrots
  • Good To Go Bars
  • Luna Bar

I’ll try to keep it at five items for the lunch box to keep it consistent. I’ll need to go to the store soon to buy more snacks because it’s starting to look like a package lunch and I don’t want it to.

For dinner I had;

  • Snow Crab Legs (no butter)
  • Broccoli Slaw

I wanted to take a picture of it but didn’t because we ate it as soon as it hit the plate because we were so hungry lol but I looked up a picture online and that’s about what we had. Sharri didn’t like the broccoli slaw all that much but I loved it.

A Smooth Day

https://i2.wp.com/distilleryimage1.ak.instagram.com/9ccb29a087ca11e3919b0e37ec96a7f5_8.jpg

Today wasn’t a bad day. I put my lunch box together with;

  • South Beach To Go Bar
  • Baby Carrots
  • Chobani Apple Cinnamon Greek Yogurt (yum)
  • Nutri-Grain Strawberry Greek Yogurt Bar
  • Welch’s Fruit Snack
  • A Muffalette Slider

https://i0.wp.com/distilleryimage11.ak.instagram.com/f4ff7aba875011e3951512fb297ee7d7_8.jpg

I was able to eat throughout the day and not be hungry by the end of my work day.  After I got off, I went to a park I wanted to check out for a while. It’s called Pompano Community Park. It has a fitness trail a little over a mile and I will visit there two days out of the week.

For dinner I went to Panera Bread because I wanted to something calorie concious after working out. I shared the meal with Sharri. my gf and then went home to rest.

https://i1.wp.com/distilleryimage4.ak.instagram.com/7f74b79c87b911e392c8123c34e343ec_8.jpg

I’m still stepping on the scale but I will step on it backwards so I won’t see the numbers until Monday because every Monday I will log in my weight. I will step on it to make myself not feel anxious about not doing it.

One Foot Infront of the Other

It’s been a while since I last posted. I’ve been trying to get my life together one step at a time between my life in general, health, my freelance business and a art gallery that I’m trying to open. But I think it’s finally lining up like I want it to.

First off I need to concentrate on my health. I want to loose my last 20 lbs and it’s getting harder and harder because I’m starting to get comfortable where I am and that’s not what I want. I’m still eating right, it’s the exercising that I need to get back into. To motivate me to keep going, I’ve been taking instagram pics of my food and my calorie count on sparkpeople. I lost my gym membership, not that I would want to go now since so many people are there for the new years.

My business right now is going good. I just need to organize it a little more and use reminders because I’ve been forgetting lately and that’s not good for business. I’m also trying to save up and fundraiser to get a new computer. My laptop went out on me and now I’m using my gf Macbook Air which is good but not good enough for what I need. I need space. The storage space is horrible. I had to buy a external hard drive to help.

Another thing I’m doing is that I’m trying to open a Art Gallery/Studio/Graphic Design business called Mysteries. We already bought the name and now we are trying to file as a non-profit as well as try to get the business plan done. We are doing this ourselves with no help business we wanted to do this alone. If you want to follow our progress, here’s the link to the blog, mysteriesart.blogspot.com

This year is the year of accomplishment and by the end I want to be comfortable in what I’m doing and no stressing. Please continue to support me as you guys have been doing lately, I really appreciate it.

30 Day No Scale Challenge

It seems to be the month of challenges because every where I go everyone is doing a challenge for something. Whether is running or dieting. Well here’s my challenge. I’m not going to step on a scale for a full month. This would probably help me stop worrying about how much a weigh through the day. I placed my scale in a draw in the bathroom where it won’t taunt me. I think this would also go great with the other challenge that I’m on this month, 30 day Ab and Core challenge. Wish me luck!
