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.
Big mama is just like every other mama out there.. making new years resolutions desperate to be in ideal shape..
On my Facebook I have posted a picture every day of my weight.. I am going to be doing my measurements every once in a while so I can watch the difference in everything..
Here is what I have so far:
And here are my measurements today:
Here they were August of last year:
I am not sure how to keep blogs interesting anymore.. I used to write all the time.. And I never ran out of things to say.. but that was back in the days of MySpace when blogs were cool..
Are blogs cool anymore?
Don’t answer that.. I don’t want to know if I am spiraling into the uncool mom zone.. my teenager already thinks I am there..
I think I will end my blog here for now.. if I come up with anything witty I will let you know right away..
Or you know.. write another blog..
Or.. .. .. something.. *blink*
S’cuze me.. I gotta go do mom things now..
As you can tell by the dates on my blog.. I get spurts of need to write.. just little spurts here and there.. and it’s because I lack anything interesting.. seriously.. the weight loss/tone up thing is a never ending battle and I hate measuring myself..
Mostly because when I do I remember my perfect adolescent figure and sigh a little.. I know realistically that I won’t ever make it down to that weight and those measurements again.. and if there was some dream world where I did.. I doubt I’d be very happy with it.. I’d probably want to gain a little weight back.
But I saw something today.. Something that made my jaw drop and my eyes bulge out.. Something incredible to watch.. impossible to imagine.. and it made me want to do it.. it made me want to do it 100 times over!
I literally have never seen this done before.. until today.. I saw in on Maroon 5’s One More Night music video.. I rewound it to see Adam Levine do it again.. and again.. and again.. until I got sick of hearing “You and I go rough” on a constant loop… then I scoured the internet in search of the name of this incredible.. impossible sit up..
It was at that moment that I new I had to do it.. I had to work my way up to this Mayweather sit up.. right down to holding the weights and a left/right hook before squatting down to do it again.. I’m not so sure I am inspired by this as I am in total disbelief that it’s even possible.
Honestly I still need to get a full sit up down.. I can do the half sit ups but not the full..
But here is how long I have to accomplish it:
Wish me luck!
So I have decided to make this my next “Do or die” goal.. I would like to be able to do this by my birthday next year.. I wonder if it’s doable..
A little victory happened for me.. as you can tell by the title of my blog.. It was my first dietbet win.
Bigger news.. since August 30th I’ve lost a collective 9.5 inches!
Sad note.. 2 of those inches were in my breasts.. A sad day learning that indeed…
August 20th measurements:
Weight: 200+lbs Exact Weight Unknown
November 7th, 2014
I was super proud of my weight loss 3 days ago.. I finally reached a weight that was under 200lbs..
Sadly I’m back at 200.8lbs
I blame it on menstration.. what a horrible way to start a dietbet..
But I am determined to look at the upside..
THIS IS STILL LESS THAN I WEIGHED THE LAST TIME I WROTE A BLOG ABOUT MY WEIGHT
erm… or a dirty picture of Steve Carell… that works too..
Today I’ve started a new dietbet.. I submitted the weight in this morning and am waiting for it to be confirmed so they can tell me how much I need to lose.. because apparently I can’t do the math on my own… (8.1lbs in 4 weeks.. I did the math post coffee)
I have nothing intelligent to add after this so I am going to leave it at this.. before I put my foot in my mouth
It is the 15 day mark today.. You thought I forgot didn’t you? Hahahahaha!
Welllllllll I did.. but something told me to weigh myself this morning so I did.
Woo hoo! I have lost an inch in each thigh! My thighs are my own personal set of demons.
I really have nothing left to add to this blog.. just this: I am ecstatic!
Question of the day:
Would you care to share your diet progress with me?
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
