So I have finally made progress!  I lost 2.2 lbs and am now at 191.8!!  Today was Day 4 of the Shred and feeling good.  At noon I will do my zumba.

I got a lot accomplished this weekend.  I cleaned up the entire upstairs this weekend, and also spring cleaned the kitchen including the stove!  It looks brand new.

So I placed an order to, for some supplements just to kind of help me.  I ordered the Lipo6x, some whey protein, and some CLM, I also got some multi vitamins to start taking.  One of the other things I got was for night time, but still helps get rid of the fat.

Now on to the good stuff!

Neck:  14.25

Trying something new

So for a year I have been at 193 give or take a few pounds.  In the past couple of months that I have been really working out and eating right, my weight refuses to go down.  I have been talking to my hubby and we have decided for me to try Lipo 6 hers.  Not doing the ultimate, that is a little to harsh.  Going to give this a try and see if it starts helping.

Just waiting for the kids to wake up so we can go to GNC and get that and a multivitamin.  I have done great, no soda, or junk food at all this week.  Not even going to give myself a cheat day this week.  I will give myself one next week though.

Probably won't post to much this weekend.  Going to be packing, cleaning and looking for my Dad's plane ticket.  It is amazing at how the prices jump around so much.  Hoping to catch a break on the ticket!  I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend!

New Food

So last night for dinner I did not do the chicken stir fry, instead I made chicken fried in a little bit of grape seed oil, added minced garlic to it.  Once it was done or close to it, I added it to the seasoning pack of parmesan couscous, water and 2tbl of white cooking wine.  It turned out ok, not the best (it was a recipe on the back of the couscous.

For lunch today I had one of those lemon pepper tuna packs, mixed a little bit of miracle whip in it and threw it on a whole wheat tortilla.  It was yummy.

This was day 4 of the 30 day shred, just for the record I hate jumping jacks!  This is also day 4 of doing 50 min of zumba in a row.  I think this weekend I am taking a break from the zumba, but sticking with the 30 day shred.

I think tonight is definitely a chicken stir fry kind of night!  Going to kick back for a little bit and work on a blanket!

Wild Hair

Last night I got a wild hair up my butt and did a 50 min zumba on the PS3.  So total yesterday I did a total workout of 90 min!  Let's just say I am feeling it this morning, but I did get up and do day 2 of the 30 day shred with my weights!  During nap time I will do another 50 min zumba workout.  I just feel better when I workout.  I can't wait to see next weeks results!

It is lunch time for the kiddos so I need to get off of here and make them lunch, then after lunch it is Zumba time!  If anybody decides to join my fitness pal leave a comment on here and I will message you my screen name.  Hope everyone has a great and productive day!

Hmm just need to think of something for me for lunch.  I think I will go with a Luna Bar and some water.  For dinner going to go get some veggies and I think I am going to do chicken stir fry.  Ok I am really going to stop writing and go make lunch!

Day 1 of the 30 Day shred with weights.

Let's just say my arms feel like jello.  Wow, that hurt!  It is a great hurt though.  I am a little disappointed in my measurements this week again, my weight is back down to 194, which is better than 196 which is what it was last week.  Today during nap time I am going to do a 25 min expert level on my zumba.

I did get a lot accomplished this weekend with the move coming up.  I took out 7 huge trash bags full of trash and cleaned off the table, on top of the dog crates and the computer desk area!

Here are this weeks measurements and pictures:

Neck:  14.50
Waist:  36
Hips:  46.25
Thighs:  23.50

So Nice out!

It is so beautiful outside, that I would love to take the dogs and kids for a walk, but there are way to many moose out.  Not worth risking us or the dogs getting hurt.  Saw a moose calf cross the road a couple of houses away.  I know I am straying from the exercise part right now, just wanted to share.

Yesterday went into Kohls and found the shoes I was going to get at Sports Authority for almost 15 dollars cheaper, can we say Score!  My hubby got me hooked on Asics, I LOVE those shoes!

I am going to be bad and not do a whole lot of working out this weekend.  I did do some walking yesterday, so this weekend wasn't a total bust.  Until Monday morning with new pics and measurement updates, have a great weekend!

Bad Day

I am just having an all around bad afternoon.  It started out crappy.  Weighed myself and I have gained 6 effin pounds.  So not happy.  I do log everything I eat on My Fitness Pal.  Just not sure what else to do.  I do know I need to cut out Starbucks,  I do that once a week if not at all.

I did day 2 of the 30 day shred.  Yes day 2 was easier than day 1.  I did some walking but OMG I am hurting so bad, I did not do  Zumba today.  I have that on the schedule for tomorrow.  Just to kind of give me muscles a little down time.  Also going to go get some 3lb weights to go with the 30 day shred.  I think when I am done with the shred, I might get the Turbo Jam dvd and alternate that with the zumba, just for some different workouts.  After I conquer turbo Jam I am thinking of moving up to the P90X or Insanity, but that is a couple of months down the road.  I hope I am able to wear a swim suit this summer with out wearing shorts or a t-shirt to cover up the fat.

Going to keep pressing on.  Even though I just want to throw in the towel, I know I can't.  I am going to go to GNC tomorrow and see if there is anything that might be able to help me jump start this.  For me the Total Lean did absolutely nothing for me.  It worked great for the first 7 days and after that nada.

Well going to lay kids down for bed, then I am going to lay down and see what I have DVR'd, and just kind of relax a little bit.  Need to get up early so I can do day 3 of the shred and then off to get dog food and some groceries.  I also get to buy our one way tickets out of here! Woop Woop!

I am not very happy with this weeks results.  So I get my butt back in gear, is what I do. Today I did Day 1 of the 30 day shred, and it totally kicked my butt.  In about 2 hours I will do a 50 min Zumba for some more cardio.  Need to lose what I have gained back.  I know I can do it.  Now for the measurements for the week.

Neck:  14.5
Waist:  35.75
Hips:  46.75
Thighs:  23.50

The only thing that continues to go down is my thighs, which is awsome!  Not complaining there.  I only have 47 days till I get on an airplane out of here, and I want to fit comfortable in the seat!  Now on to the pics of the week:

Picture quality sucks this week.  Was kind of shaky while taking them.  Here ya go though!  Till next weeks pictures, hopefully there will be a better improvement!

busy busy

This has been a busy weekend.  Today I packed up my bedroom, at least what I am not using.  Haven't been eating completely healthy but not totally blowing it either.  My weight doesn't seem to be going down, but we will see on the measurements on Mon.  I think on Monday I am going to incorporate the 30 day shred by Jillian Michaels into my routine.  I will do that for 30 days straight (Lord give me the strength!) and every other day I will do Zumba.  Just to kind of give my body a different workout.

Time change weekend. The day's are really going to start flying by.  Only 49 more days until we leave here.  I am so looking forward to it.  Being back by family until my hubby comes back home.  I miss him so much.  I am very blessed to have him support me on this journey of weight loss.  I know you are reading this, and wanted to tell you I love you very much!

Week 4

So I didn't lose a whole lot of inches or anything this past week but boy can I sure see a difference from when I first started this journey.  My weight is not changing which is very frustrating but I am definitaly slimming down.  I walked about 2 miles or more yesterday pushing my kids around.  We went to the mall, then went to Sams Club and walked that strip.  I was bad and bought a bottle of Moscato, but I only have a little glass a night.  I will take a picture of it tonight, it is maybe 6 oz at the most.

On other news I finally found a sippy cup Booger will drink out of.  Of course it is one of the most expensive ones out there, go figure. 

Now on to the good stuff, my measurement and picture updates for the week!

Neck:  14
Waist:  35.50

Since I have been at this for a month here is the totals lost:

For the record, yesterday was a kick ass day!  I cleaned, vacuumed and mopped the entire house.  Did a 50 minute Zumba workout, (used my new polar FT40 HRM) and burned 481 calories.  Then went and walked for about 45 min.  Ate great all day too!  Just out of curiosities sake I weighed myself this morning and was down to 191!!!  I lost 2 lbs last week.  I am so proud of myself.  Yes I understand there will be times when my weight will go up and down, but I am burning fat and adding muscle.

Looking forward to tomorrows measurements!  I am off to do my Zumba workout, make the kids lunch, nap for them, then we are going to go out walking.  Hope everyone has a great day!

Week 3

Well this weekend was not a good one, no I didn't go out and eat a bunch of junk, I did have Chinese and a piece of boston creme cake.  Also did not do Zumba at all this weekend or yesterday.  Feeling kind of blahhh, but I did do a lot of walking and cleaning so that makes up a little bit for missing zumba.  While I didn't make my weight goal for the end of the month I did lose a pant size!  I am going to go to old navy and look at the clearance section for the next size down to shrink into.  I don't feel bad for spending 8 dollars on a pair of jeans to shrink into then out of.  Now for the exciting part the measurements for the week and the pictures!

Neck:  14.25
Waist:  35.75
Hips:  46.25
Thighs:  25.50

Weight 193.4
