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.
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
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
They are my biggest comments.. I have been taking a sabbatical from writing lately because working fulltime & starting up nights with a cranky baby doesn’t make for good blogging material..
The baby got her 1 year immunizations and didn’t take to them as easily as she did her other shots.. 19 hour days and 5 hours of broken sleep has caught up with me.. I can’t wait for this week to end.. The extra money isn’t worth it..
My milk has depleted, my baby misses me & I am just plain exhausted..
Time to try out fenugreek.. I hear wonderful things about it.
What have you been up to since I have been away? Did you notice that I stopped writing?
I am working both shifts now so my blogs will be in the afternoons again. I an going to miss my afternoon nap..
On the bright side I am getting more money for working fulltime hours so yay for house hunting money!
My baby turns 1 tomorrow she is growing too fast..then again so is my 11 year old..
My boss didn’t realize that I asked for the entire day off tomorrow and is frantically making phone calls to have someone covert my shift in the morning..
I hope he doesn’t ask me to work on my babies first birthday..
Sorry my blog isn’t more interesting.. I can’t concentrate because I am on a ton of pain. I need to nurse my baby like you wouldn’t believe..
So.. I got paid today for 2 days of training! $80 whole dollars! Awesome!
Seriously it is awesome.. It means that my pay week alternates with my boyfriends so we will get a paycheck every week.
With that and a planned out budget I see a house in our future
What is just as great is that it is the weekend
I get weekends off at my New job.. Which means all weekend with my girls
I am so friggen lucky it is amazing!
Have a happy weekend everyone.. I know I will..
I may or may not blog during it.
*insert suspense music here*
