Just popping in

Just popping in for a few seconds... I have been very sick! Started getting sick last week and Friday night while at my Christmas party, it got worse! I slept all day Sunday (while the best boyfriend ever took care of Caleb) then tried to work Monday but made it to only 9:30 am (Casey came to the rescue again when he picked up Caleb for me so I could go home and rest more).

I feel better today and plan on being back at the gym tomorrow. I am not expecting any kind of loss this week because I haven't been the best at watching what I am eating. I have had no energy to cook, go grocery shopping or anything so I have been eating whatever Casey stops and gets for me... Not the best but hey when you are sick calories don't count, right?! I wish...

I will update ya tomorrow on how the Christmas party went (my dress) and how week 5 weigh in goes!

Hope y'all are doing well and I hope all of you are staying healthy! Remember your Vitamin C people!!!

Week 4 Results

Happy Thursday Y'all...!

This morning Casey weighed 1st, before I tell you his weight let me tell you a little story about this boy. Casey has been eating my cooking for dinner the past couple of weeks, he hasn't made it to the gym, he has gone out drinking with his buddies, last night he had a milkshake at the movies and then ate chick-fil-a before bed. With all that being said, Casey lost 3.8 pounds this week. All the women in the world please say it with me... GUYS SUCK! He wasn't even trying and he lost almost 4 pounds?! I am super proud of him, but I made sure he knew how much he sucked... ugh!

Now on to my turn to weigh in. Last week I was at a 13 pound loss since November 8th. For the past 7 days, I have been 98% perfect on my eating (slipped up a little here and there but all over a great week). I have made it to the gym 6 out of 7 of the days and while there, I have busted my ass with cardio and weight training. I get on the scale and lose 2.6 pounds, for a total of 15.6 pounds. Don't get me wrong, I am WAY proud of myself for my loss... just seeing Casey's loss really ticked me off. I hate sounding like I am not proud of him, because I am very proud of him... I just hate that guys lose weight way easier than girls do.

All that matters though is, I lost 2.6 more pounds this week and I fit into my dress for the Christmas party tomorrow! If I continue to lose like I have been, a steady couple pounds each week, hopefully I will be able to hit my goal of losing 11 more pounds by January 1, 2013. Christmas is going to be hard, but I am bound and determined!

Guess what zipped...

You should know by now that this Friday is my work Christmas party... evening gowns for the ladies and suits and ties for the guys! Casey and I even have a hotel room at the Omni hotel, where the party is being held! My sweet friend, Mandy, gave me a dress to wear on my cruise back in September. However, it wouldn't zip up all the way. I was bummed out and just wore a dress in my closet. Well, when I got wind about how fancy this party is I was bound and determined to wear this dress. I started 4 weeks ago on a mission to get it to zip up. The zipper goes all the way from the top of my butt to almost the middle of my shoulder blades. I was able to zip it up maybe half way 4 weeks ago. With every passing week, it went up a little bit more. Last week, Casey helped me zip it and it was so close but yet so far away. He told me that I probably would need to go buy a new dress. I still had 1 week and like I said earlier... I was bound and determined!!!

Last night I put the dress on and with the help of Casey, it zipped up all the way! I was so excited... I danced around the house while Caleb and Casey both kept telling me how pretty I looked. I did not want to take it off. I am so proud of myself... I did not measure myself 4 weeks ago, but having that dress zip up last night tells me that I have lost a good amount of inches! I still have some work to do, I know. I have 3 whole days before the party and I am going to eat perfectly and work my booty off. And, every night I am going to put the dress on and wear it while watching TV for a bit so that maybe it will stretch out and not be SO tight. A girls gotta do what a girls gotta do! I cant wait to wear it into the party with my red high heels... eek!

I am oh so excited! I cant seem to wipe this smile off my face... Oh and something else I cant seem to control, Casey! The past week or so, Casey has paid me more compliments than ever before. He cant seem to take his eyes (and hands) off me. Every time I walk by, he compliments me on my flat my stomach is getting. When I am standing in the kitchen cooking dinner, he comes up behind me and puts his arms around my waist. When I sit on the couch, he makes me scoot all the over to him so he can snuggle with me. I know he loves me no matter what size I am, but the way he has been acting since I have lost the 14 pounds... I am loving it!

Black Running Shorts

I fit back into my black Nike running shorts!!!!! I have not worn these shorts since before my knee surgery, I am thinking the last time I wore them was this time last year. I didn't wear them for the 1st part of the year because of my knee and I couldn't go to the gym. I didn't wear them the 2nd part of the year because well, they didn't fit. Actually, I lied. I wore them once in July (I think) and they were so tight and I was so embarrassed at the gym and I never wore them again. This morning, I grabbed what I thought were my gray running shorts and put them in my workout bag. When I got to the gym, I realized they were my black ones and fear set in. I wasn't going to let a pair of shorts stop me from working out, so I put them on and much to my surprise... THEY FIT!!! It was a happy moment which called for a happy dance which I did in the locker room (no one else was in there, but knowing me I would have done the dance with 500 hundred people watching)!

I don't know why it took me SO long to really get in a grove that would work, that would give me the results I want, and that would be easy enough for me to continue. I really thought my life without DC3 (diet coke, carbs and cheese) would be super sucky, but really its been the best thing ever! I love not being bloated (except for that glorious week of each month), I love being able to fit into old clothes, I love having my energy level back, I love not getting headaches... I just love this new lifestyle change!

What would you give up to be back into some clothes you haven't worn in a while?!
