Well, today I took the first step and decided to join Jenny Craig. So what motivated me? I just turned 29 and I am going through some transition. I am back at school and just decided enough is enough. I want to lose weight! I have been heavy all my life and I need to take control.
So, as I hope everyone else's journey is smooth, though I know there will be rough patches, I hope mine is as well.
Good Luck everyone!
I'm feeling such guilt right now. I just finished dinner at a wonderful restaurant where I shared appetizers, main course, and dessert. I also had two glasses of wine. Why, oh why?? My body is already repaying me for my gluttony. I feel sick and I deserve it! Lesson learned, wine equals poor decisions!
I'm feeling old today! My oldest child, Jessica, turns 21 today. It's hard to believe how time flies by. Enjoy life because it passes us by so quickly. It's time to get healthy so life is more enjoyable when we are older. Nobody wants to be sick when they are trying to have fun with their grandbabies!
Yesterday was 4 weeks on Plexus Slim Accelerator and I'm down 10.4 pounds, 10.75 inches, and 3% body fat. I'm more than happy with that!
Hubby and I went on a hike yesterday and we covered 8.71 miles, including some rough terrain. We really enjoyed it and can't wait to do it again! I can see this becoming a regular habit.
I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend!
I woke up sick yesterday and had to take a day off work. I'm feeling better today, though, AND it's Friday AND I'm off work on Monday! Yay!
Even though I was sick yesterday, I finally dragged myself out of bed in the early evening and took a walk with my husband. Then later in the evening my mom and I took a walk. So depsite being sick, I managed to get about 5 miles in. I was very pleased with myself because I could have easily stayed in bed.
It's Friday, people! Let's get ready for the weekend.
Sweat was pouring off me tonight as I did 30 minutes on the incline trainer, a Jillian Michaels incline program, and then 45 minutes on the treadmill. After that I lifted some weights, did some ab crunches, and then some stretching. I feel great; like I'm getting my old self back. I can't wait to get back into the full swing of running again. I'm so disappointed in myself for stopping in the first place!
My eating was on track today as well. I had a thin bagel for breakfast and half of a medium iced skinny latte. For lunch, I had tuna on 7-grain low-fat bread. And for dinner, I had a salisbury steak Lean Cuisine and 2 more slices of bread. I will have a low-calorie snack and call it a day after my bath.
I hope everyone is staying motivated!
Also, I started a new support blog: Getting Plexus Slim. Please come take a look and join me. I promise it will not be all Plexus information. I will post other helpful information as well.
So, I've been gone for quite some time and looking at my posts yesterday when I came back, I couldn't really remember why I just stopped blogging one day. Then I looked at a few posts and remembered that I changed jobs and was traveling a lot, so I just didn't have time at first and then as time passed, I must have forgotten all about it. It's been 4 years!! A lot has happened in 4 years. I noticed my weight was around 141 when I left. Strangely, I maintained that weight for most of those four years. I took up running and was running about 4 half marathons and 1 full marathon per year. My weight would go down a little and then eventually come back up. But then I retired from the Air Force and for some reason, I can't even remember why, I stopped running. Then I was "retired" for about 6 months before I started working again and slowly the weight started to creep up on me. I was walking and trying to watch what I ate, but it didn't help at all. My weight would go up, then down, then back up. One day I weighed and was back over 150 pounds. I swore I would never weigh over 140 again, and here I was weighing in at over 150. Why did I let this happen? Well, I know my metabolism has come almost to a halt since I turned 40 and the weight just doesn't want to come off. But then I kept hearing about Plexus Slim from my friends in Mississippi and decided to give it a try. The first day I started I weighed in at 149, a little over three weeks ago. Since being on Plexus Slim, I'm now down to 140 and my body fat is dropping like crazy. Plexus Slim & Accelerator suppresses my appetite and I'm not obsessed with food. I'm now able to watch what I eat so easily because I'm really not very hungry nor am I craving food constantly. I loved the products so much after the first four days, I decided to start selling them. I now have about 6 friends taking it and they are doing great too. One friend has been on it for 7 days and lost 6 pounds! Anyway, as you can tell, I'm excited about the products.

Week 5 (7 Oct -13 Oct 12) Plexus Slim Review
I'm getting back to my active self. I logged approximately 24 miles on the treadmill this week and 8 miles hiking. My endurance and speed are improving.
So what did all of this do for my weight you ask? Well, I actually gained almost a pound this week. However, my body fat dropped .7% this week, so I'm not upset. I know I'm gaining muscle with all the running, and I also dropped another 3/4 of an inch. So total my body fat is down 3.6% and I've lost 11.5 inches.
I am slowly transforming my body back to where I want it and I know I couldn't do without Plexus Slim Accelerator!
Since dropping 10 pounds, I am reenergized and I'm getting back to my old self. Although I had a relapse on Monday and went back to terrible eating for one meal, I vowed that evening to make up for it. And I did! Tuesday through Thursday of this week I have logged just shy of 18.50 miles on the treadmill and incline trainer. Yes, 18.5 miles in 3 days! That's the old me that I know. I forgive myself for Monday and pat myself on the back for Tuesday through Thursday! Happy Friday, everyone.
