Keep Getting Back Up...

Hey, it's been a while!  I really don't know what to say right now. I have NOT been careful about what I've been eating for a few months... and have gained some weight back.  I am not sure how much because the battery in my scale needs to be replaced (and has been that way for a while because I secretly didn't want to know, so that I could keep cheating)!  How ridiculous is that!?!  Like I don't know what I am doing!!  Crazy how food can so easily rule my life!  I hate it!  Anyways... I officially made a decision to get my butt back in gear.  I started back up yesterday and I am going to keep it up!  I am not perfect and I will make mistakes and get knocked down.  But I WILL keep getting back up and I WILL be a healthier me! :)

Back on Track

With Summer being over and school back in I always find myself feeling a little lost at first. The lack of strict schedule all summer, is what does it I think. I also find myself excited for routine again.  I am excited to get my booty back in the shape I like it to be. I am still at my weight I like but I am far from where I want my muscles to be. I want that definition again and I am finally ready to get it again!
I'm also studying still to re-test for that damn Personal Trainer Exam! ;) Yes I said damn!!! I have found that I have mixed feelings about not passing... more so than I did right after I found out that I didn't. I think it's because the ladies that were in my class with me are all passing and I get discouraged about that. A couple of them have kids as well, one is a single mom of 3 and doing nursing school and did the PTC and passed. She sucks:) No really I am so happy for them but I can't help but feel a little pissed once in a while about it! Oh well... get up dust off and keep moving is all I can do.  I plan on having my certification by Christmas. I'm working with a study coach through ACE; which is way awesome, she is so great. I won't be disappointed in myself because thats exactly what the guy downstairs want me to feel. Well I WIN! Take my time, understand everything I am reading, studying and learning and not in 3.5 weeks.;)
I have amazing friends and family that are so supportive and believe in me too so I can't let them down either.

Let's all get back on our personal goals and keep sharing. We are amazing and CAN DO HARD THINGS!

Time for me to maintain!! I'm proud to say that I have reached my goal weight of 145! It was a long process and I did have bad days and setbacks but you get past them and move on to the next day. I'm proud to say that 66 pounds are gome and I don't plan on them coming back anytime soon!

We all have our bad days

We all have our bad days.  I have certainly had a couple of bad days this week!  That's right; I ate almost the whole pork salad at Cafe Rio (for lunch) last Saturday, and had a corn dog and french fries (for dinner) the same day!  Aaand... the next day I had a big fat cinnamon roll (just because) and a great big giant smore later that night!  Then two days later I ate way too many unlimited steak fries at Red Robin!!  Yes, sometimes we have bad days.  But just remember this...
Stumbling is not the same as Falling!

crazy backwards cycle

No loss (actually I did lose 0.2 lbs), no gain this week.  In my book, that's not a bad thing at all.  I am kinda in shock that I haven't had a week where I gained since I started this journey because I am certainly not perfect and I totally have my bad days!  I am learning things about myself as I go along.  I am a BIG TIME emotional eater.  Any emotion I have makes me feel like I need to eat!  Sad + food = temporary happiness.  Happy + food = temporary happiness.  Excited about an accomplishment + food = temporary happiness.  Etc, etc.  I say temporary because then... temporary happiness from food + beating myself up about eating the not-so-healthy food = One pissed off girl who wants to binge herself out of being grossed out by her lack of control with, what else, food!  This crazy backwards cycle is a constant struggle for me.  It has forced me to take a good hard look at my inner self and has made me think about some changes that I need to make.  I am trying every day to be a better me and I have to say...  I am feeling pretty darn good! :)

Bobi's last two weeks...update

I lost 1 lb. last week and 1 lb. this week. 14 lbs. to go! I have been finding it so much harder to be good this past week.  Kyler's birthday was on Tuesday.  I had to take treats to school, then have his favorite cake made for his birthday party after school as well!  I had a piece of cake at the party and then another piece that night with the family.  I also had a piece after lunch the next day!  (It was better than you-know-what cake- I couldn't resist!)  I will be trying harder this week.  Guess I'd better not make any more cake! Dang! LOL!  On another note... I tried on a pair of pants a couple days ago (that were snug) that I wore last year when my sister was here... they were huge on me!  Fun to see such a big difference! :)

I have been trying really hard to do better eating and working out and I don't always see the results. Well today when I was getting in the shower (I hate looking at myself naked) I thought Oh my gosh my stomach is smaller!!! I was so excited. It is working and paying off. We might not see it as quick as we want to but we will see the results in the long run! Keep it up ladies!
