Back on the Wagon!

I weighed in at 182 lbs yesterday at the gym. 32 lbs more than where I was a year ago. Devastating. Sad part is the one way I know how to rid myself of the extra baggage I can't turn to. I cannot do dope, though last time it had me drop 30 lbs in 3 weeks. So I have to do this the hard way. The right way!

I finished off the last of the Reese's last night. I will no longer drink 2-4 Strawberry Banana Vivanno's daily. I will get to the gym at least 2-3x a week. I will do this. I can do this.

Yesterday I kicked ass at the gym. I did 20 minutes on the elliptical, I've never done that before! And I was moving pretty fast, sweat was literally pouring off of me after just 2-3 minutes! I did a total of 30 minutes on the weight machines as well. I am feeling it today. Especially my calf's, inner thigh's, abs. and triceps. They are all super sore! I wanna go back tonight!

I need to stay motivated. Unfortunately my loving husband is not helping out in this department, he's all, "uh huh, I've heard this all before." And, "I'll believe it when I see it!"

Can I get some much needed words of encouragement? Some motivation?


  1. First, I think you look pretty good, even if you are above where you want to be. But I absolutely know what it's like to go, "You know what...this shouldn't be here, I can do better."

    Go for it! Obviously you have a great start, even if it's a bit painful, but that'll go away. Hang onto how you feel today -- motivated, energized, pumped -- that's easy to lose in this process, so sink in your claws and hang on!

    I'm trying to get back on that everlasting bandwagon myself -- summer is here, I have a distance biking event to attend in July, there's no excuse for me not to get trimmed up. Plus, if nothing else -- think how fun it'll be to shove it back in your hubby's face when you've done it! :)

    (and I say when that happens, you show him how sleek and svelte you've become, and then make him sleep on the couch for a night or two. He can suffer a bit for not being supportive, eh? :) Good luck!

  2. You can do it Nicole! You just need to stay motivated and think about the long term goal. I know it gets super frustrating when you start to put in the work and see no change but it will come with time! And forget your hubby! Mine is the same way! I would go to the gym 4-5 nights a week and he would be sitting in the same spot on the couch the entire time I was gone. It's annoying but it's your body and you do this for yourself and not anyone else! Go girl!!!

  3. You can do this! You know how I know, because you're freaking awesome and can do anything.
