Tomorrow is day one of my Bikini Body Mommy 3.0 adventure..
I fail miserably at these programs.. they are too strict.. they deprive too much.. they work you too hard.. they don’t work you hard enough..
I have decided to do BBM 3.0 and have accountability partners.. I’m actually running this BBM journey with a few online friends.. I’ll be the one posting the videos and asking for updates from the people who have joined me..
I am hoping that since they will be depending on me to keep them motivated, that it means I will stay motivated myself..
I have decided that I will not be following her meal plan.. I will take the supplements that she has suggested and do her work outs.. I will be increasing my water intake as well.. but I will eat what I like and practice moderation.
Bright at early tomorrow morning I will weigh myself for the first time in over a month.. which will be horrifying.. and I will post it publicly which is even more horrifying..
I went though a depression for that month that I didn’t step on a scale.. and I am a comfort eater..so that doesn’t really bode well for me. I’m not sure what I weigh right now, but I can guarantee that it is more than 200 lbs so I am a bundle of nerves tonight because I know I will not be happy with what I see on the scale.
For now.. I will try not to let it get to me too much.. but seeing as I am writing about it.. it’s not easy to not think of.
I am not sure how regularly I will be posting about it here as I will be posting it in the womens group that I am in and posting it on Instagram.. But I will try to keep you updated.. My invisible reader.. who is so invisible that it doesn’t show in the stats that you have read my blog entries.
So I know I said I would write every 20th & 5th, but I just joined DietBet so I’m writing about that.
I just weighed myself this morning.. 203.5… … … Ouch I remember when 140 was a tragedy…
So I figure.. after tearing apart the work place that I might as well take my measurements again since I’m doing the whole weight loss thing and the inches are more important to me personally anyway…
In 10 days I doubt I’ve made any difference.. but let’s see…
August 20th measurements:
August 30th measurements:
Apparently 10 days did something.. that’s kinda awesome.. I can honestly say I’m happy now! Woo hoo!
I don’t think I’ve changed my eating habits much, but I have meal planned.. skipped the carbs when the rest is filling.. and am making an effort to cut back the amount of white sugar in my diet.. which is saying a lot since I used to put 2 tsps per cup.. I’m down to 1.5tsps now..
That may not seem like much but factor in the fact that I drink 10 cups a day.. I’ve gone from 6 2/3 tbsp of sugar down to 5tbsp I’ve cut out 1 2/3 tbsp of sugar a day.. That is 36.5 less cups a year that I will no longer be consuming. 28,214 less calories a year..
Can you tell I’m bored? Haha.. I’m doing math.. in a blog.. that no one reads..
Anyways.. to sum things up
– I’ve lost 2 collective inches
– I don’t know how much weight I’ve lost
– I’ve joined Dietbet
– I’m bored
Question of the day:
Are you currently doing a weight loss thing? What is yours Paleo? Atkins? Noom? Tell me about it
As you can tell by my name & url.. I am a mom. I have 2 beautiful children & just returned to the work force from being off for a year.
I honestly don’t know why I am setting up a blog or why I choose the name I did. I am terrible at advice & even worse at sticking to themes. I am however curvy & a mother so I suppose that counts for something.
Today I have a day off so I am spending time with my baby relaxing as best a mom with an infant at home can.
Though her climbing on me even now as I write this is hardly relaxing. Haha
I have wanted to write a blog since watching Julie/Julia.. But seeing as I have no cookbooks at home nor the dedication to cook that many different dishes in a year I decided not to start one with a cooking theme in mind.
Then I had the baby.. And am struggling to lose the weight so I thought that perhaps a blog of my weight loss journey.. Then I tried some cardio and my milk slowed down significantly.. And decided that working out might not be the right option for me without facing undesired side effects. So I am back to walking and eating healthy versus weight loss for the sake of my vanity.
I am healthy, I have a wonderful baby that depends on me for some of her food, I am going to accept that I am who I am and learn to embrace my new found curves.
But that still leaves me with nothing to talk about…
So I think I will take this day by day & see how it goes. Whether you are out there in the big wide interwebz reading the words of one curvy mama or not.
For now.. I am going to see if I can get the little one down for a nap.
