Weight loss this week (technically last week): 1.8 lbs
Total weight loss: 15.8 pounds

I realize I'm about 5 days late in posting this.. That was my weigh in last Saturday.
Practically 16 pounds down in two months, and I am feeling good.
Hopefully I can keep up this 8 lb/month average.

This week hasn't been great.
I had horrible tooth pain Monday and Tuesday and didn't go to the gym.
Then my root canal was yesterday, and I was too drugged up and numb to go.
The great thing is that my tooth has hurt too bad to really eat much of anything but greek yogurt and cottage cheese.

We'll see how things go with Christmas this weekend.
Speaking of which, have a merry one. :)

Loss this week: 3.8 pounds
Total weight loss: 14.2

I have no idea how this happened. Really. I was sick/busy all last week and only made it to the gym once. I had a work Christmas party and ate Mexican food and a burger Friday night. Then weighed myself Saturday, and it was a pre-Christmas miracle.

My theory is that after eating so healthy, my body was shocked by the caloric overload and worked really hard to get rid of it. Just a thought, I could be totally wrong. My Apex pills may have played a part too.

This week has been and will continue to be equally hard.
There are multiple Christmas parties I'm attending, lots of hair clients to do, dress rehearsal for my Christmas choir concert, the actual concert, birthday parties, church activities, Bunko, and more. Not only is it exhausting, but it leaves little time to go to the gym.(And let's not even talk about the abundance of Christmas goodies that follows me everywhere I go.)

This little voice in the back of my head keeps saying, "Somebody busier than you is running right now." (Thanks for that, Pinterest.) So, I know I shouldn't complain, and should just go late at night if that's what it comes to.

I know that what I'm about to say is horrible, so don't judge me. But I've come to the conclusion that the holidays are going to be hard, and that's OK. I know I'll slip up and probably not lose as much in the next two weeks as I have been the past two months, but I'll still try my best, and that's all that matters.

Only 6 pounds to go until my first goal of 20 pounds!

Weight loss this week: 1.8 pounds
Total Weight Loss: 9.8 pounds

I completely attribute my 1.8 pounds lost this week to my two new lovers, Zumba and kickboxing. Not that I necessarily ate bad, but I was more snacky than I have been.

I ordered these two Apex products and started taking them this weekend. I'm really anxious to see if they kick up my weight loss at all.

I opted for the Caffeine Free Fat Burn because my heart rate is already ridiculously high and extra caffeine tends to make me feel crazy. And anybody that knows me can testify that I do NOT need more crazy.

Here's my question. I've lost almost 10 pounds. Why do my pants still fit??

Seriously, they're the exact same fit that they were when I bought them two days before I started this journey. I've always had a flat stomach, and carry almost all my weight in my butt and hips, so you would think that they'd at least be a LITTLE loose. I'm frustrated.

But such is life. It'll happen soon enough, hopefully. :)

Skinny Motivation

I'm sure you all have heard of a little website called Pinterest, yes?
Ok good. (and by "you all," I mean the zero people that follow this blog but apparently the many that stalk it..I know you're there.)

One of my very favorite things about Pinterest is my "Skinny Motivation" board. Whenever I feel discouraged or need motivation, I search the fitness category and feel inspired again.

So without further ado, here are a few of my favorite Skinny Motivation pins.
(this may become a weekly thing.)
