Well hello there my friends–long time no write! School is officially done and I’m graduated!! So I’m just trying to relax and get started with this next chapter of life. Course, the ‘relaxing’ part really hasn’t come around yet, and I’m wondering if it will. 😛 With everything that happened those last few weeks of school, and even up too now–my weight has fluctuated more then it should have. As of yesterday, I had gained almost 15 lbs and am at 172. 😦 (NNNNOOOOO!!!!!!) To be honest, I have been quite upset with myself for “letting myself go,” and even though I have been watching what I eat and exercising…..nothing is working, and I’ve been gaining weight (as you can see). But….it will be alright, because I’m going to get this right before the 4th. I was talking to my cousin-in-law a couple days ago, and he made the statement that he would like to lose 20 lbs in a month, so I had an idea. I want to be down to 155-160 before the 4th of July, and so I challenged him to that–>that together we would work to be down 10-15 lbs each before seeing each other for 4th of July weekend at my grandparents house. Now how am I going to do this? Insanity got me great results, T25 got me to where I needed to be next, but it’s time for the next and final step to my weight loss journey to get totally healthy and fit. Because seriously I want firewoman abs yo!!!! Have you seen those ladies?! They got killer bodies, and rightly so, but they aren’t like body building abs, or skinny girl abs–they’re……….I don’t know how you would actually describe them, but I want a body like that.

However I have to remember: I’m not wanting another girl’s body. I want my body–but leaner, stronger, and healthier. Ok, so what is the final step? Well, I’m jumping on the bandwagon and putting the 21 Day Fix to the test!

I do wish that we had gotten it sooner, because I would be finishing up the fix right before my class reunion, but because of trying to help my dad with getting planting done, getting a job, and some other life issues that came up, we’re starting this week.

Check list/food schedule ready to go! Here’s how I’m going to be keeping my tally of food and water

They say it takes 21 days to break a bad habit, and so I’m giving it 21 Days (could be more then that) to break this “bad habit” of mine. I don’t want to keep using food as a anti-despessant. I know in my heart and mind that I’m an emotional eater, and so it’s time to just buckle down and get healthy for crying out loud!! I’m at the final step of this journey, and I truly believe that if I follow it, I’ll see great results, and find the lifestyle of eating/exercising that I need. (And then I can go back to Insanity and T25 again 😛 Get a little muscle confusion going on 😉 ). I’m planning on doing a weekly update about it, but I might forget–hopefully I won’t. It’s been 3 days, but here’s where I started out at:
