22 Weeks/Weigh In Wednesday

It's Weigh in Wednesday!

For anyone that actually knows me in real life, the 22 weeks blog title probably just scared the crap out of you, but fear not, I'm not pregnant. I was pregnant for like 3 years straight, I'm so done with that!

This Weigh In Wednesday may as well be called Epic Fail Wednesday. I have made horrible choices all last week and most of it didn't include alcohol (improvement!). I know what I need to do to lose weight, it's not like when you're practically obese that you can hit a plateau, trust me that's not what's happening here. I have a giant weakness for...  SODA... not candy, not chocolate, not bread.. good ole' SODA... I mean like a crackhead weakness for it.

The only way I can drink water is if I chug it like a frat boy chugs beer. I know what I need to do and I have even more motivation to do it besides the whole 'you need to get healthy so I can chase after my little humans before they destroy everything in their path' motivation. The date has been set for my 10 year reunion. It is going to be June 14th and 15th (boo, no Bonnaroo for me). It's going to consist of a cookout, brunch (really?), a tour of our old school, and a Black Tie Ball at the Space and Rocket Center.

Black... Tie... Ball... I may work at a dress shop, but I don't do dresses... Not because I'm a tomboy or play softball, but because I fear looking like Free Willy in an evening gown. Well, I don't really know what I'd look like in a formal gown, Husband's idea of a fancy date is Lenny's sub shop and Netflix. But I imagine the image isn't a far off comparison.

 It's time to get on it. Maybe I should get voice clips of Jillian as my alarm clock? I can't seem to get up in the morning to workout, and I'm too tired once I get home from work. Let's just face it, I'm freaking lazy. But lazy ain't skinny, and if it is, then she's a bitch. I've done the math, if I just lose 1.5lbs a week, I'll lose 33lbs by the week of the reunion.

I think I'm going to have to just buckle down and join a gym. My co-author of this blog is going to join today. I really wanted to lose some more weight and have less 'jiggle jiggle' going on before I joined, but maybe this will help get my ass in gear.

Does anyone have any workout tips for beginners? And I really don't want to generalize myself as a beginner.. Maybe a pre-beginner beginner is a better description. I'm even too challenged for the C25k app right now. Any comments are appreciated :)

Stay classy :)

  1. I have lost 80 pounds and not gone to the gym once in the last 14 months, wait I'm lying, I went three times...beachbody has some AMAZING at home workouts, I'm a turbo fire junkie and have recently fallen in love with body pump! check them out!!

  2. Ummm, we are one in the same girl! I've had a rough week too but all of you girls have motivated me so much... I'm vowing to make today a good day and then tomorrow a good day and the day after that... hopefully next week will be better for both of us!

  3. I am not a morning person, I like my sleep. And at night the couch sucks me in nice and tight. The only way I can get my ass to the gym is to go straight from work! And I just had some friend sign up at my gym too and it is SO motivating. Don't worry about your jiggle! Everyone is there for the same thing...well execpt the skinny bitches that wear make up but just ignore them! :)

    Cheers to a new week!

  4. I did 40 minutes of cardio 5-6 days a week and lost 20 pounds over 9 months. That's what my doc told me to do since my nutrition was pretty good. Except dinner, she told me I had to cook dinner. I didn't like it but I did that too. I stuck with the elliptical but now I usually run. Esther Norine Designs

  5. I suggest finding a convenient time that you can get alone - and then test out what you like to do. Zumba won me over. Just going for a walk or so to start may help? but definitely have a plan with your husband so you can get away & focus on doing something.

    that'd be my advice :)

    and good luck!!!
