Busy Days

I am sure everyone is staying pretty busy these days gearing up for school to start! Ugh I am really not ready. What will I do while my daughter is at school?? I have started applying for jobs but haven't even had one call back yet! So you guys say a prayer for me and maybe I will find the right job. So I was thinking today that I am still so heavy and why am I not thinner yet lol then I had to remind myself HELLO its only been 3 months which really isn't that long. Although I will say I have come a long way in this short time. This picture is one of my favorites I have seen so far

We all need to remember most of us didn't just wake up one day and be overweight it took time to put it on and it will take time to take it off! Although it was definitely easier putting it on then getting it off haha!

Something else I was thinking about while I was trying to jog and I am sure it is a sight to see I thought I wonder what people think. Do they think why is that fat girl even trying? Maybe they think why did she let herself get like that? I thought of this because as I was walking at the walking park an older lady walking her dog stopped me and said "Hunny I see you here every evening and I just want to tell you I am proud of you" This made me feel so good someone actually noticed that I came every day and try to push myself. Guys if you see someone struggling or everyday out trying to lose weight or get healthy say something because it might just be what makes them keep on going! Everybody has their own story and you never know what it might be so never judge!!

I am a music person for sure. I love all music I can be in the worst mood ever hear a certain song and it just brightens my mood. I am also a big worrier well I used to be I try not to do to much worrying anymore because it doesn't help thins much. While driving down the street you see people running I mean there will just be that person that has their headphones on just running along. I think man I wish I could run or even jog it looks so peaceful. I have always thought that. I was so heavy and I thought there is no way I will never be a runner. I mean seriously It killed me to just walk around the mall sometimes how the heck will I ever run??? I continue to see these people just running and now I think I can run I will be able to put my headphones in and run. SO I started trying I mean I jog. BTW my sports bras are wonderful for this! lol I start out walking and then I will break into a small jog but I can only jog about 2 minutes at a time. I walk, jog, walk, jog and just continue this. So my question is does anyone have suggestions on how to become a jogger. I don't really know what I am doing haha. I can't wait to be one and just jog the entire time!!!

Here I am on a walk!!! smiling

OMG I can actually see my feet instead of belly haha

My walking buddies catching up!

Today is a New Day!!

Here is something I want to say....... I see and hear so many people say well I did bad today I ate to much or I didn't work out or whatever then they quit. You know it was just one day get up and try again the next day! Every day is a new day with a new beginning each morning!It doesn't matter how many days you think you failed at whatever it may have been just start agin. Don't just quit and give up!

When I started this sugar detox I was so afraid that I wouldn't be able to stick with it! I am amazed by myself and that it is so easy for me I mean don't get me wrong I have my struggles but I just keep on going. Everyday when I wake up I pray for the strength to be strong enough to keep it up. Every night when I go to bed I say my thanks for the strength and pray again for the next day. People you can do it don't be so hard on yourself because you may have slipped or something just start the next day fresh!

Ok sorry had to get that out lol. So about a week after I started I went to wal mart and I bought a pair of there shorts that look like the Nike shorts everyone wears. I wanted a pair so badly and really the smallest size they have is a 20 and ya know they still don't fit like a 20 they are kinda smaller. I get these shorts home and guess what they don't fit! I can't even pull them over my huge thighs ugh! So I kept them and I tried them on once a week! I wore those shorts to the store last week!!! YAY Finally I fit in them! My aunt called and wanted to go shopping and I was like ok. Well I hate to shop nothing ever fit and it just made me feel fatter than I already was. Anyways so we went in a store and she was like why don't you try on some of the nike shorts I said NO way the biggest they come in stores is an xl (online you can apparently find them in a 3x but no I don't wanna buy them that big haha). I actually got brave sucked it up and tried on a pair GUESS what I got them suckers on, now they were tight but I fit! haha

Shopping wasn't so bad when you can actually wear normal clothes, well I call it normal because you can actually walk in a store and they have your size on the rack! I got 3 Nike sports bras in an xl YES YES YES!!! I was so Happy! I know its not a medium or a large I mean its still an XL but this is so awesome to me because I didn't fit before! I have to admit I kinda like shopping now just a little lol

Work Outs!!!

SO my 10 minutes of walking I started 88 days ago has stuck with me pretty good. I now go and walk early in the day and in the evening time. I try to do a mile and a half each time. So that brings me in at about 3 mile but here is my problem...... I walk a mile or so in about 12 minutes sometimes it takes me maybe 20 minutes if I try to do 2 miles. I am not even walking 30 minutes usually so do you think you should go by time or miles? Another thing is I don't think I am pushing myself hard enough. I am not tired or sore ever. Now don't get me wrong when I am walking I have labored breathing and sweat but as soon as I stop its normal like I never even walked lol. Kinda weird so I feel like I need to challenge myself and do something more or maybe walk a time frame instead of distance! Opinions please???

Second what do you guys think about this topic? Do you think every once in a while you should throw in something off the diet to shock your body or HECK NO keep  to it ? I ask because I feel I am kinda at a stand still and have been since about Vegas. I know people plateau but for how long? I know  everyone is different but I am trying to not get frustrated and just keep at it...

I would love to join a gym but there aren't many here where I live and the ones we do have are pricey  .We don't even have a YMCA! I have been doing some different things here at home. Why are all the exercise videos so expensive beach bodies, p90x, and insanity..... Anyone out there know a good workout DVD that isn't a 100 dollars? I did get wii fit its kinda boring though lol. Although it is improving my jogging lol.

Catch Up!

Hey everyone sorry I been bad about blogging but time just seems to get away from me. I haven't quit or fallen off the diet wagon just been busy with my kiddo for the summer time. So I am not even going to try to catch up I am just going to start fresh and try to keep up. So I hope everyone is doing good. You guys make sure to leave me a comment and let me know how you are all doing!!!

Just incase you were all wondering I am now on day 88!! Yes still going strong 88 days of no bread, sodas, well you guys know the low sugar low carbs. I am surprised I have stuck with it but it is quiet easy now not really struggles its just everyday stuff now!

Let me catch you guys up a little. I have lost I think about 58 pounds so far. I say I think because I had to step away from the scale. My scale was going crazy never weighed me even close each time. So I just kinda go by my clothing and every once in a blue moon step on my aunts scale. So I know I haven't gained here lately I am just maintaining guess its one of those plateau things haha!!

So I have gone from a 2xl shirt to XL I can fit in a large but not as comfortable as the XL and in pants of course it depends on where they come from but in cato capris size 22 or 24 to an 18 or 20. The comfy pants from wal mart I fit in an XL wow it is so nice to walk in and be able to just buy whatever lol.  Talk to you guys soon! I can't remember if I have posted this pic or not so I will it was a couple of weeks ago.

This pic was taken today!
size 18 pants and XL shirt!
