A Little Background

After 2 kids and not being able to shed off al that extra weight, I was looking BIG for my type of body. 

160lbs being the heaviest I had ever been, I decided it was time for some extra help. I turned to HCG for that help. Knowing deep down it wasn't the best way to go about it, but the easiest/fastest way, I took the plunge. My goal was to get back down to 145, which was what I was weighing when my husband and I married. The 1st couple of days were hard, but as the time went on, it got easier and I was getting pretty full with the very small meals it allowed. By the time I finished the 20 days I was down to 137lbs and feeling pretty good about it. I knew I would have to work hard to keep my weight but I was convinced I could do it. Once I was able to work out again, I got myself down to 133lbs. 

All of this was while my husband was deployed. I figured it would be much easier to attempt loosing the weight without him being home cooking all his delicious food or having to share a car. Well needles to say, when he got back my daily gym visits stopped. I was back to having to share the car and he was cooking even more then before. Although he was being good about keeping my portions small and cooking things with me in mind, I could see I was gaining weight. Even though I only gained 5lbs, they seemed to be about 10lbs to me. 

A few months after my husband returned we got orders for Georgia. With all the preparing and eventually moving, I didn't bother trying to work out again. Now that we moved and settled in as much as possible, its time to get back on track! Armed with a daily workout plan, I plan on meeting my goals! 

Hopefully this time next month I'll  have a second fitness goal to achieve =]

Monday Is The Day

My blogging and exercise routine are usually the same. I start then I stop out of the blue :/ But I'm hoping this time will be much different!

After 2 long weeks of not working out I will once again start tomorrow. I'm pretty excited. This time I have set a goal for myself. My goal being to lose 9lb in 5 weeks. That means -2lb a week. Also to be able to run a 2 mile run in 20 min. Which I'm determined to do :)

Iv set myself with before pictures and a pretty big black board of my workout.
Circut x3: Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays and I'll be walking Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays.
