Fit Friday!

I know, it's crazy, no posts for months...now two posts in one day!! What's the world coming to??

I am still on my path to bringing sexy back! I recently registered for the Atlanta Color Run and I am super excited about it!

I went for a run yesterday for the first time in weeks. I have not perfected the self-portrait in the bathroom mirror shot yet, but I wanted to document that I got out there and ran in some pretty chilly weather. I know it's not as cold as those who run up north, but it's cold for this girl! I am so ready for some warm temperatures and sunshine, so I can run everyday!!

The look on my face is better here, but the actual picture is blurry! Maybe one day I will get it better! I can tell I am losing weight in my face mostly. But I only really notice it when I have my hair pulled back. Not really sure why. I have stopped counting WW points because I just get tired of writing everything down.

I am still very conscious of what I am putting into my body and I am eating fruits and veggies like nobody's business! Eating fruits and veggies has pretty much eliminated my craving bad stuff. No more chocolate cravings, no more popcorn cravings, none! I had popcorn with Oswald last night and when we were done, I said, "that wasn't even satisfying!" So sad!

Not sure the dates of these pictures, but they are in order from longest ago, to the most recent...there is not a huge difference, but it's enough for me to get excited about!!

And what is the most exciting is the fact that in these two pictures I am wearing my race shirt and one pair of pants...then...

In this picture (below) I am wearing a different (smaller) pair of pants and my race shirt is looser on me. For some reason my gut is sticking out more, but it might just be the way these pants are fitting me.

I'm a little more streamlined and it's really nice. Oswald can't keep his hands off me and that's super flattering! He told me the other day that I am looking really good and he can see a difference in my stomach! Score!!

I don't remember what my goal is except I wanted to be super skinny by the time my Love Bug turns one! She'll be one in less than 2 months! I am pretty happy with myself where I am, but I know there is still more that can be done.

I have not stood on the scale in several weeks because it is just depressing! I always weigh more on the scale than I feel I look. It's really hard on the self-esteem. But my clothes are getting loose and I am into a size I have not been in since I was married 10 years ago!! So.much.fun!!


  1. You are one hot mama! Keep up the great work!

  2. yay for you! remember, the number on the scale is just a number and doesn't really mean much. what means much more is how you look, how you feel, and how you feel about your look. if you feel like you have more energy, are wearing smaller sizes, and are excited about it all, then the number doesn't matter much. there are girls who weigh 110 pounds who eat nothing but empty calories and couldn't walk up three flights of stairs if you asked them to.

    i'm proud of you! keep it up!

    (and ps - you and i are both "apple" body types, meaning we carry our weight in our mid section, and i can tell you that when i lose weight, my gut gets more prominent. not because it's gotten bigger, but because it's the last place i lose weight and because everything else is getting tinier so it's more obvious. being an apple sucks.)

    1. Shelley, you hit the nail on the head for sure!! Being an apple sure is hard and my belly is always the last place I loose weight. But it means I have really sexy ankles and a skinny face!! LOL
