Holiday Shred...No more challenge...

As day 14 comes around I gain 3 pounds for another very disappointing week.

Day 14
Current Weight 202 pounds

In spending another moment reflecting on why... Just over a year ago I was eating healthy,  and going to the gym every morning. My weight was going in the direction I wanted it too. I felt great. So as I look back at what life was like I realize I really didn't have many time constrained goals/challenges. I just did what I needed to do. So with that said. I am giving the Holiday Shred challenge the ax and starting over. There will be one goal for now and that is to work towards a weight ranging from 155-160 pounds. I will continue to strive to find and research what works for me. Challenges are not for me, and even when I did weight loss challenges with friends or co-workers I always seemed to have the mind-set just not the follow through. 

A big part of my inspiration to continue this journey and strive for what works and share my journey is Katie with Girl on a Mission to Lose the Cushion. I strongly urge you to check out her blog! I love it and hope to have the success she has had.

Til next time! "Live well, laugh often, love much"

Holiday Shred Progress... I think not...

Alright... I have to be brutally honest with myself. The past week was complete failure... I was so excited to start this journey and was less than prepared. Lesson learned this week; Plan ahead... Prepare, prepare, prepare... So this week I have planed out meals, gym times, what I am going to do at the gym, and simply every aspect of my life. There are no progress pics this week as well there was no progress. I tried to diet, I thought I would go to the gym but just never got my butt there. So this past weekend I had a heart to heart with myself. I am prayed for the strength to make this next week a success. I really truly want this and I am hopeful that this next week will be just what I need.

Day 7
Weight: 198
Goal Weight on New Years day: 180
For at total of 18 pounds to lose
