Okay, so I have some GREAT news to share! After more than a month of struggling to get back on track. I got back on the WeightLoss Wagon this past week. I LOST 5.2 lbs! Ow Ow! Yeah, I'm more than a little proud of myself. :)

Getting back to it wasn't as hard as I thought it would be, I just took it one day at a time. And that's what I've got to do. Stop focusing on the huge 40 lbs or so I have left to lose, and just count each day as a success.

It also helped that I revived my Yoga Booty Ballet routine. I got a little bored with TurboFire--I do it for too long without switching it up--and needed something new. And apparently my metabolism did as well. I've also been training for my first 5k.

However, I can't let myself slide back into bad habits this week. Saturday is my birthday, and cake is my trigger food. Once I start, I can't stop. Little Cake Crack Monkey, that's what I am. For Reals.

Then, the next day is Easter. And if I don't watch my portions I'm going to be in big trouble, so that's going to be a big goal of mine, particularly since I can't control the menu--we're going to family's, where inevitably there will be more cake in honor of Easter and my birthday.

And Monday, all of the Easter candy will be marked down. So I've got to barricade myself in the house. No Target runs for me on Monday. No Siree.

Wish me luck! I hope you have a wonderful week!


  1. Congrats on the weight loss! Good Luck avoiding cake and candy. You can do it! I know you can. Just think about how good you feel with that 5 lbs gone.

  2. FIVE POUNDS! Congratulations!!!!! That is so awesome. Welcome back on the horse.

  3. WOO HOO!! Awesome week for sure!

    The great thing is you have proved to yourself that even if you do fall off the wagon you can bounce back.

    Happy birthday by the way! My son's birthday is also on Saturday.. I'm making him cupcakes for his party but only enough for the number of kids that are coming. I can't have those things in the house :)

  4. Congrats on your awesome loss, now don't sabotage it. After Easter stay away from the cheap candy anyway, are those quality ingredients you really want in your body? Happy BDAY too!!
