Our Adventure for the next six months!!! CHEER US ON!!!

June is Here!!!!  I can’t believe how fast this year has gone by!!!  I have BIG PLANS for the rest of the year!!!  The unthinkable happened t me on May 31st!!  I GOT SICK!!!!!  I kept working (I won’t do THAT again) but my workouts TOOK A HIT!!!  I have not been able to workout this week.  As a result, I gained 2 pounds!  If I don’t MOVE, I don’t LOSE!!!  I’m not too concerned because I’ve already lost the 2 pounds (I jump on the scale from time to time).  I have 3 Days to KICK IT DOUBLE TIME before Wednesday weigh in!!  Something really exciting happened to me!  I decided to partner up with @kthenb and apply to become the next DYNAMIC DUO      “Two Scoops” Hosted by @Skinny_Scoopers.  Guess what?!?  WE WERE CHOSEN!!!  We will document our weight loss by blogging our weigh-ins every Wednesday and tracking our progress via BodyBuggs!!  Our BodyBuggs should be here by Tuesday and we have a conference call set up for Tuesday with Kim from BodyBugg.  We will also be doing a podcast with them.  Details still to come!!  @kthenb and I are in the process of getting BRAND NEW BLOG HOMES thanks to @nomorebacon This will happen before Wednesday!!  I will let you know the new addresses!  I’m thinking a good 50 pounds should come off during this challenge!!  I’m going to give it 110%!!! We’ll see!! 😉

 I spent most of the weekend in bed (Doctors orders) But many of my Tweethearts were out there MAKING IT HAPPEN!!!  My dear friend @dailykat ran her first 5K as did @jeepjenn.  @bekkib73 ran her 2nd 10K.  My Half Marathoners were @thefitlounge , The ladies of @ShrinkingJeans @reallifeadv @christieo, @LissaJoy @MommyMo, @girlsworld, @mama_sass, @karenaVNV.  My Friends @JenInRL, @MizFitOnline, and @IAmSucceeding met up with friends to participate in Weight Watchers Walk it!  @Nadeen walked for Chrohn’s Disease!! And My HotAss Friend @MrsFatAss made it to #Gruve E Green as she “Gets Her Groove Back”  My Dear friend (and coach) Lori launched her new site @DareToBecome There is also a WONDERFUL GIVEAWAY TO ENTER

 

I’M SO PROUD OF ALL OF YOU!!!!!

If you know of any one that I may have missed OR if you have something coming up in the future, please let me know in the comments section.  I’m on a mission to CRUSH the DISNEY HALF in Jan 2011 and “YOUR” Victories Fuel MY SUCCESS!!! #Teamwork  It’s all about building a Loving Supportive Community!!!  Let’s Band Together and  GO FOR IT!!!  If you really WANT IT….It’s

After meeting Nadeen and loving up on Bailey, we headed to Aquatica!!!  It is Sea World’s Water Park!!!!!  We have 2 year passes to both Aquatica and Sea World!!!  Such great FUN IN THE SUN!!!!!  My Highlight at Aquatica was that the life jackets snapped WITH EASE!! No more “thinking light and sucking it in!!! LOL!!! (Celebrating the small victories like one of my tweethearts always reminds me to do) Can I get a WOOT WOOT!!!!! 😉

The Picture I Took This Morning AFTER My Run/Walk

 

This has been a VERY EXCITING week!  I was challenged by @kthenb to walk/run 3 miles Monday-Friday of this week.  I’m PROUD to report that WE DID IT!!!  I set a goal and achieved it!!!  It felt WONDERFUL!!!  This was in addition to the challenge I received from @slorunnermom on the dailyburn.com to complete 100 miles (running BUT she is gracefully allowing me to count ALL my miles 😉 ) She also challenged me to 100 miles biking!!!  I plan to “ride out” later today!!!  (I’m 16 miles behind her!!!)  I purchased a Garmin Forerunner 405.  I’m still trying to figure it out BUT when I manage to get it to work, it is an awesome training tool!!!  I have developed an accountability group for my diet!!  (Kat, Terri, and Kimmie) We send our logs to each other daily with our exercise included as well!!!  This is a great tool to help keep the bad food choices few and far between!!!  I have ONLY CONSUMED WATER for the month of May!  Another one of Kimmie’s Bright ideas!!!  It was hard at first BUT it’s getting easier!!!  I’m still able to drink my green smoothies in the morning for breakfast!!!  These little ditties give me soooooo much energy!!!  Starts my day off right!!!  Whenever I have a birthday, I evaluate where I am in my life!!!  I’m pretty darn happy with the direction my life is taking!!!  I decided to Add A Little “Spice” to my life in the form of a “Road Race” in January!!  Details a little later BUT for now, just know that I am moving daily, headed to becoming a
“Lean mean fighting machine”  I am also doing 200 crunches a day to get my abs TIGHT!!!  If EVERYTHING goes according to plan, I will get my belly button RE-pierced in Chicago in October when we go to watched @slorunnermom compete in her FIRST MARATHON EVER!!!!!!! (I’m SO EXCITED for her!!!)  So if you see me on twitter/Facebook/Myspace/Dailymile/or DailyBurn, ask me how my abs are coming along!!!  Help Keep me focused!!! 😉  This (the following video is just ONE of my “Ab Inspirations” (Janet Jackson is my number) 

Sooooo…. I was riding to the store yesterday and “talking” to a close friend of mine (that I havent met…YET) We were talking about this weeks successes and not quite successes.  Out of the blue, she asked me “What are you afraid of?  You have ALL the KNOWLEDGE/TOOLS to SUCCEED, so what is your damage?”  After I got over my initial annoyance that she would even have the NERVE to ask me such a thing, I began to look inside so that I could give her MY TRUTH!  It ISNT a fear of success!!  I Pride myself on being a SUCCESSFUL BLACK WOMAN!!  I LOVE to set goals and ACCOMPLISH them!!  It’s not childhood damage!!  I had THE BEST CHILDHOOD EVER!!  I’m NOT an Overeater… More times than not, I skip meals and UNDER EAT!! (I’m doing much better now) 

MY PROBLEM….. My “WHY” for WHY AM I STILL OVERWEIGHT?!?!? 

I Put EVERYONE’S NEEDS Before MY OWN!!!!! 

Carla has been trying to help me with this for a while but I really didn’t think it had anything to do with my weightloss….I WAS WRONG!!!!  I have ALL THE KNOWLEDGE!!!  ALL THE TOOLS!!!  I will set up a PLAN, go to bed, wake up, and Begin to make OTHERS Happy…. My Patients, Friends, Significant other, kids…..By the time I get to ME, I’m EXHAUSTED!!!  I tell myself … its ok, TOMORROW will be ALL ABOUT ME!!  I wake the next day and do THE EXACT SAME THING!!!!   

INSANITY:  DOING THE SAME THING AND EXPECTING A DIFFERENT RESULT!! 

I’m smarter than this!!!  So, there!!!  I’ve found my WHY!!!  Now its time to CHANGE IT UP!!! 

STARTING TONIGHT…. Dinner AND Workouts completed by 9.  In bed AND lights out by 11!!!  This is just the tip of the ice berg!!  Full details coming soon!!  Please help me keep these goals!!  WE ARE A TEAM!!!  Ok, I’m going to end here…for now… Thanks Kimmie….For being MY MIRROR!!!
