Weigh In Week 15/Closing this blog Til Jan.2010

To my surprise, when I got on the scale, I am still 181lbs! I could have sworn I lost weight. I must say I think I lost some inches though. So I didn't gain or lose. I just maintained what I have lost which is good.

I so appreciate the love, encouragement, support from all of you. From the silent readers, to my followers, THANK YOU!

I was going to keep this blog open so I can give you all an update, but I'm going to go on and close it temporary til Jan. 2010. I need some R&R!!!!!! I manage 5 blogs and it is work! But I love it. I will be condensing my blogs down to 2 for the year of 2010.

But I have good news! I'm on Youtube and I will be giving my weigh in update once a week. So if you wanted to check me out you are more then welcome. Bare with me on the youtube. I'm still trying to tweak somethings on there and I'm still trying to get used to talking in a camera.

Ok, I want you all to have a Wonderful Christmas and a Happy New Year!

Weigh In Week 14/Lemon & Lime

Last time I weighed in I was 184lbs. To my surprise after doing absolutely nothing I lost 3lbs. So I am now exactly 181 lbs. I can't even see how that happened. I didn't do any type of excerise nor a whole bunch of fruits and veggies. I must say I didn't eat much and my job had me hustling so I guess that was my cardio. Check this out, the night before I weighed in, I had intentions of doing 50 stomach crunches, but only did 10 crunches. I was thinking to myself as I was doing the crunches, "I am so silly, do I really think that these crunches are going to flat out my stomach in one night?!" So I stopped, that's why it was just 10 crunches, lol.

I must say I'm proud of myself. I did drop the 3lbs that I gained. So now I'm extra excited to see 170's on the scale. Btw, sorry, no pic of scale. I didn't get any batteries yet so bare with me.

This week I'm just going to do the darn thing and not give a list of do's and don'ts to myself. It's almost like a mental game when losing weight. When you don't think it you lose it, but when you think it, dream it, vision it, it seems like it may take longer.

What I will do this week is add lemon or lime to my water. Rumor has it (from good resources, ie health sites/tv shows) that by doing that it cuts the fat. Don't ask, I just do, lol. I must say it is quite refreshing. I do add a little bit of honey or sugar, but not much.

Ohhh guysss! I feel so relieved! I'm back at 181! It's going to feel good changing the Progress Status on the blog. So close to the 50lb weight loss! That's a lot of weight! Especially on the knees. Oh gosh, no wonder I was a hot tired mess.

What I look forward to the most is wearing new clothes and shoes I brought years ago in a size 9/10 and some 11/12. I can't wait for my doctors to see me either. I just hope they can reduce some of those medications I'm on. That would be great!

I want to do another makeup color for you all, but I have to wait on my camera. Also, I'll be busy again so I hope to make several entries on here.

Til then, be bless and stay wonderful!

Chocolatey Delight Cereal

I brought Special K Chocolatey Delight Cereal last week. I'm not really a chocolate lover where I "must have" chocolate, but I got it because I was thinking this will help take the edge off of my sweet tooth since I have awakened it from the holiday.
This cereal is really good! The crazy thing is that you really can not taste the chocolate bits in the cereal. I just taste the crunchy flakes and cold milk. I did try the chocolate bit on it's own and it was really good. Not sweet, but had a little kick.
Now I usually get the Vanilla Almond Cereal from Special K. I say to you all to try it. So good and fullfilling. More importantly it's healthy, so you feel even better.
If you stomach gets the growling and you want a not so heavy, low calorie snack, then a healthy cereal is good. With or without milk, it's an excellent snack.
I confess, I did have this cereal for dinner one time, lol. It was a bowl and a half.

I can't believe the week is almost over. I still haven't worked out like I planned this week. This is terrible! I feel fat. Doesn't look like I lost anything. I think I'm still trying to get over the holiday. I need to shake myself and get with the program. I predict that I probably lost 1 pound this week, lol. Speaking of shake, I have been craving a strawberry shake from McDonalds. Ohhhhhh.....helppppp...... For the record, I'm not going too, I hope not, I better not, besides, we are celebrating my daughter's 8th birthday and if we get ice cream, then I might, might have a little. Does that make sense? Adding fuel to the fire? Adding more calories to the weight gain? Mmm, not! I'm not making any promises, but I think I might have to pull out my killer workout dvd....BILLY BLANKS BOOTCAMP! After that workout, I don't wanna do ANYTHING!
