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
So the babes had fun trick or treating.. The cat went out twice and used a dumping bag part way through both..
Part way through the second trip she started complaining that she was trick or treating by herself.. I asked her if she wanted to just go home then.. She said no and her mood got considerably better..
That may have had something to do with my saying: If you aren’t having fun anymore it must mean you are done for the night and don’t want anymore free candy..
The cupcake fell asleep after the first run.. So she slept in the stroller as the kitty added a cape to the costume..
Ahhh yes.. The infamous batcat.. Nothing says Halloween quite like it..
We didn’t get home until 11pm.. Quite the night.. The 11 year old had a serious sugar crash and was out like a light in less than 5 minutes of her head hitting the pillow..
I myself went to sleep pretty quickly.. The baby quietly played beside me until she eventually did her nightly faceplant into the mattress for her traditional sleeping with her little diaper bum in the air..
So friggen cute..
I would like to say that everything has been smooth sailing.. But I have been making all sorts of silly mistakes at work.. And yawning all morning.. Thank goodness it was a slow morning at work.. I don’t know what I would have done otherwise.
The baby and I are going to have a siesta(spelling?) Even if she doesn’t fall asleep.. I will at least get some rest before the rest of the day bombards me..
