Time to loose the weight

Really, today, today is my motivation.  My leggings, which are a size MEDIUM.....are too small.  They are killing me...and with my dress, I look like I'm 5 months pregnant.  Which would be great except that I'M NOT PREGNANT (tho I secretly wish to be).

I am 5 feet 6.5 inches tall and...I can't believe I'm putting this out there in blog world I weigh 146 lbs!  AAAAAAAAAACCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCKKKKKKKKKKKKK.  I haven't weighed that much since I had A five years ago.

Is my metabolism slowing down?  Is it possible that I'm really that much of a slug?  Is it a 40 thing? 

For most of my life I have been tall and skinny.  I did gain weight my freshman year in college...and then lost it rather quickly.  But I'm not loosing it.  Granted, I sit on my butt all day at work staring at a computer.  I think it's time to stop shopping at lunch and start walking when the weather is decent.  Something, to just get my blood flowing.

Hubby needs to loose weight too......a lot of weight.  So, I am going to sit down and discuss with him tonight what we are going to do.

I don't have the time or the money to join a gym.  I would really like to start running....set a goal and maybe do a 1/2 marathon some time.   But it's so dark in the morning and dark by the time I get home from, what is a girl supposed to do.

Kristy, if you read this, I know you are going to recommend Jillian Michael and yes, I will pull that out again.  Three days a week I will do that.  I PROMISE.  Pinky promise.

Because today, I feel like a big ole' fat cow.  And I don't like that.




  1. Sounds like you have a good plan. I hear that a lot of people get good results from Jillian's DVD'S.

  2. Alicia...thank you so much for visiting my blog and leaving a comment. I've got to get this started.

  3. Do you have an iPhone? If you do, download the My Fitness Pal app. It's great for tracking calories and exercise. Even if you don't want to count calories, it's great for looking up foods to get an idea of how many calories you are eating. Very eye opening! I have mine set up to lose 1 lb a week and so I eat 1240 calories. Yep, it goes quickly! But I've lose 5 lbs in 3 weeks! And yes, Jillian Michaels!! Search for 30-Day Shred on Pinterest. The photos are amazing!
