It’s Been Awhile…

It’s been a long time coming I tell ya!!!. Busy with being a wife, a mother, a daughter, a best friend so on and so forth. But during that time I have found time to get back into working out and losing weight.

About two and a half years ago i was weighing in at 191. When I stepped on that scale I had so many emotions inside. I felt like I was a failure! Why you ask? Well i can remember being a teenager and saying to myself, “being over weight will not be an option for me, if i see myself anywhere over 200 lbs it’s time to get back into shape” So when i saw myself almost at 200 lbs i knew it was time to spring into action. And that I did. I signed up to weight watchers and also took a pre-workout supplement called “Oxy-Elite” which not only gave me the energy I needed for my workouts but it also supressed my appetite. Several months later i was down 20 lbs and let me tell you EVERYONE noticed.

Funds started to get a bit tight so i stopped weight watchers and stayed on oxy elite. I figured i would be fine now that my appetite was under control….so I thought. Anyway I eventually stopped taking oxy elite because you have to cycle off, other wise you will become immune and you will be just waisting your money. Well It became clear to me months down the road that I did not learn a new way of life. I simply relied solely on supplements and weight watchers. I went back to the same way of eating and not working out as much as I needed. And it really became evident last year when i began to have lower back pain, knee pain and all kinds of other pain which enabled me to do alot of the exercises i wanted to do. So not only was I not eating correctly i was also not active. With those two out of my life the weight slowly crept back into it. but not by alot. I never made it back to 191 but i was slowly creeping back to 180 which is now my “NO NO ZONE”

About 3 months ago I got back on weight watchers and about a month ago i have been deligent about eating right and exercising. Could it be because it’s warmer outside? WEll not exactly. Here in Kansas City the weather has been a bit off. Winter time in spring and spring time in summer. Very unpredictable. So going outside hasn’t really been an option. But my determination to stay motivated and eating healthier has been on the rise. And my desire is to share with you my journey!! So far i have made it all the way down to 165 lbs but have gain 5 lbs in muscles. My husband has noticed my transformation and so has my friends and family!! And now they all want to know how I have done it. That’s where my blog comes in at LOLImage

Dinner Was A Success!!!

So last night, well I take that late yesterday afternoon i’m driving home from work and I’m thinking WHAT AM I GOING TO MAKE FOR DINNER. my goal here recently has been to eat better, live better and do it with the entire family. Like i shouldn’t be eating good and my kids eat McDonalds, in my opinion that’s child cruelty. Matter of fact I cannot STAND McDonalds. When I hear or say the name I throw up a little in my mouth. nasty? oh I know it but hey that’s how nasty they are to me. Anywho moving on. As I’m driving home I’m thinking and thinking and thinking what I have in the fridge. Mind you i have a 20 min drive so it’s plenty of time to figure it out right? By the time I got home i had a whole meal planned. So when i got home of course I worked out for an hour, via youtube! yes I said it youtube it was great too I’m super sore. But I digress, when i get done i decided to pan fry some tilapia with chipotle seasoning I got for the market with lime juice and cilantro. First of all YUM!! It was tasty. but that wasn’t it. I had a little steamed jasmine rice left from the previous night. I took the rice and mixed it Cilantro. walah cilantro rice!! Hello!!! then i made homemade guac and homemade salsa. Then I put the fish on top of the rice, topped with guac and salso and a smidge of shredded cheese. OMG!!! My kids LOVED it! And when the hubs got home, he said it was the BOMB!! I felt rather good when i got all those accolades. Above is a pic of my oldest sons plate. he doesn’t like guac so it’s minus the guac. But other than that dinner was a success!! And to top it all off i got up this morning and walk/run for an hour!!! Yay me. My shoulder is still KILLING ME! but it’s only the second day of my steroid anti-inflammatory. So we shall see where that takes me. i know one thing it’s making me nausaus. Ugh!

Well that’s all for now lovelies. Thanks for reading!!
