Weekly Weigh In

No, I am not sharing my weight with you people, whoever you may be. I'm not that brave and I'm also not that much of a fan of hating myself publicly. What I will do is tell you that my weight is up AGAIN. UP. I am now almost at the weight I was after I gave birth to Audrey 19 months ago.
19 months.
Holy crap.
I have got to get it together, yo.
Confession: I have not worked out since the New Year. And, to be honest, I have not worked out in a shameful amount of time before that, either. Shameful. Instead I have been spending my lunch hours eating like crap and effing around on the internets. I'm not excited about the work that it takes to lose weight. I'm excited about the prospect of not being fat - obese, even -but I'm not excited about the journey. I'm hoping that Operation Red Bikini and the new challenge I'm joining via the Mama Laughlin Fit Camp on facebook. (I'd link, but I can't access facebook right now, so just google that business if you're interested)(or go to this link and see what it's all about! FitnessUnscripted.) The challenge will run the course of The Biggest Loser's television season and will even overshoot my birthday goal of thirty pounds.
So, I need to be clear here with my goals. I will report my weight issues once a week, probably on Friday. I won't be giving my actual weight because that's insanity and terrifying to me. But, I will tell you how much I'm up and how much I'm down. And, I'll be keeping a rundown of my work outs. Sorry if that stuff is boring, but it's what I've gotta do. I need some accountability now and I need ya'll to hold me to my goals. The plan is to get up Monday-Friday at 4:25 when Eric leaves and get my ass on the elliptical. Just thirty minutes, probably, but still. It's a start. And I'm going to do what I can in those thirty minutes. It'll be pathetic to start, but that's just the start. I'm hoping to work out somewhere, somehow at lunch every day as well. Or, I'll even say just four days a week. AND, finally, I'm challenging myself to a Plank-A-Day, Yoga-A-Day, and a Wall-Sit-A-Day as challenged by FatChick2FitChick. Yeah, it's a lot, but each of those things will only take a minute of my time to start with and can really help get my focus going. I hope.
Who's with me on any of this? Anyone? Anyone? Is this thing on? Steph, you better be reading this, since you're the reason I'm trying to write it again!


  1. You can do it lady!!!! If I can do it seriously anyone can!

  2. I myself have tried to start committing to the treadmill daily, I was doing great until the holidays and then I was just never home! But I'm going to start again! I do 10 minute increments 3 times a day. When I get up, after dinner, before shower... but even if I don't get all 3 in due to life, doing something makes me feel better throughout the day and that motivates me! So we will have matching red bikinis! Haha
