Motivation Buttons

I need to have them ready to push when I need them.

There are LOTS of things that motivate me, but I can't always remember them when I am feeling unmotivated. I want to have some memorized! SO I am going to list the TOP things that I need to remember when I am tempted to make horrible decisions!

1. Being lighter than my husband.

 My husband is trim and FIT. If he were over weight, it would be easier to reach this goal! But he isn't :). I want him to be able to easily throw me over his shoulder/carry me. I want to be able to sit on his lap without feeling like I am too heavy. I want to weigh MUCH less than him, not just a tiny bit.

2. I want to see my figure again.

I LIKE my figure! I miss it! It has been covered up for WAY too long! I want my HUSBAND to see it  too! :)

3. I want to be healthy and attractive when I am old!

I don't want to be walking around slow and in pain. I don't want to be carrying around an extra 50 LBS everywhere I go. I don't want to look like I gave up on being an attractive women. I don't want to be frumpy. I want to be able to play with my grandchildren. I want to still have a healthy relationship with my husband! (wink wink) :)

4. THIN and fit pregnancy!

If we are blessed with more children, I would love WITH ALL OF MY HEART to have a couple pregnancies where I felt SMALL. Where I didn't gain way too much weight that was from JUNK food, instead of baby! My last pregnancy was WAY better than my previous ones, BUT, definitely not good enough! I still ate too much junk and gained unnecessarily!

5. I want food to not be so important to me.

My husband is this way and I want to be like him! He is moderate. He eats junk food, but he is moderate with it! He doesn't snack around. He is not afraid to be hungry.


1. Lighter than my man.
2. See my figure.
3. Healthy when I'm old.
4. Thin pregnancy.
5. Care less about food.

I want to memorize these, so they are "THERE" to press when I need them!

What are your motivation buttons?

Almost back to my low weight.........

The weight that I was before I got unmotivated ,cheated way too much, and gained back several pounds.(Over the last 3-4 weeks.)

YUCK. I HATE that!

But after being very diligent for several days in a row, 5 of those pounds are gone. YEAH!

It can be so hard to get back on track when you are off. The first few days just seem like torture for me. But if I keep it up, it only takes a few days to feel the LOVE again :). To feel my motivation returning.

That's where I am now. I had a great day today! Ready for another great day tomorrow!

So if you are out there, and feeing UNMotivated to start, or re-start?

JUST DO IT! 3 days from now, you will be SO glad you didn't wait!

I want the weight loss, but not the hard work.

Isn't that what we want in life?

The great benefits, with as little work as possible, or better yet, FREE?

I have been messing around, cheating, skimping on exercise and just feeling UNmotivated in the last month. I keep stepping on the scale and being disgusted at the numbers staying the same!

DUH. What was I expecting?

Well,what I wanted was for them to magically just keep dropping, while I ate what I wanted to eat.

I have been LAZY.

So I need to suck it up and change that. I shouldn't expect results when I am not willing to do the hard work. Yes, weight loss is HARD WORK. I get REALLY tired of it too. Burnt out. But like anything else in life that you have to work hard for, it is SO worth it!

So here is to me being SERIOUS and MOTIVATED again! Time to drop another 30 LBS!

Who's with me?

I have no idea if anyone is still out there, BUT...........

I am back, I have lost 30 LBS (all the weight that I gained with Gracie) AND I did it with Trim Healthy Mama! The last month has been yuck. Cheat cheat cheat cheat. I have been burnt out and unmotivated. I am done with that and ready to be serious again!

Maybe some of you who USED to read my blog are still here, maybe not.

But I am going to blog here anyway! :)

Has it really been THIS long since I updated here?

I am the most INCONSISTENT blogger EVER!!!!!

I have not lost ONE pound since I last updated this blog. I won't even TRY to make any excuses. Just plain old WAY to much cheating!! I HAVE eaten tons of healthy foods and stuck to THM for the MOST part, but I cheated to often to lose.

Then I got TOTALLY discouraged and did something TOTALLY ridiculous.

I stopped THM and counted calories for 5 weeks.

Didn't lose one pound.

Again, way to much cheating.

Then my sense returned and I realized where I had been failing at THM. Atleast I *THINK* I realize.

I have been back on THM for a couple of weeks (almost) and today I am on my 2nd day of my first EVER Fuel Cycle.

Deep S has been way easy and I am VERY hopeful that I am going to see a brand new low this weekend! We shall see!!

HOPEFULLY I am back for a little while! I have a few delicious recipes to post.

It has been 10 days since I updated but.........

That isn't because I am doing bad! Not at ALL!!!!

I have kept all of my goals COMPLETELY!

In fact, we even added to them. Starting last Sunday, we have been totally sugar free. I mean, COMPLETELY sugar free. Only for the month of January, just to kind of unspoil our taste buds, start the New year off with a bang, and give me a nice weight loss boost.

No Redi-Whip
No dark chocolate
No ANYTHING with sugar in it!

It hasn't even been hard. I hardly ever even think about it.I WILL be excited for FEB 1 to get here but I am doing fine!

We have been exercising perfectly! We were doing 6 days a week but I did change it to 4. I just don't feel like exercising 6 days a week and don't feel it is necessary.

Our new schedule is......

Monday- A mix of easier cardio (dancing) and TaeBo/kickboxing
Wednesday- Upper body
Thursday- Peak 8
Friday- Lower body

My weight was kind of stuck but ever since I have started to get more sleep and not eat after 7:30, it has started dropping! I don't know if I will reach my goal or not but I DO believe that I will be close! I am not going to post my weight until Feb 1.

About the evening eating. Staying up late and eating late was really messing me up I think. So I am tryiing to eat supper by 6:00 and my dessert by or around 7:30. After that I can have one FP snack IF I need it (I willl eat a little more on date night) but mostly I have just started drinking tea. I bought a pretty cup to drink it out of too :).

Well, that's all for now. :)

Doing just about PERFECT!

I don't have long but I wanted to say that I kept my goals and did EXCELLENT this week. The best week I have had in I don't know how long!

Surprisingly, my weight is not down. Oh well, I am fairly certain that next week it will be!

That's it for now!
