Youtube and other goodies!

So I made my first of MANY videos to come and posted it on youtube for the world to see. I didnt think i'd ever get brave enough to do it but i did. I've been watching people vlog on there forever now. I've seen people drop weight like crazy and just be human, its so inspiring to watch just normal everyday people losing weight and sharing with everyone. I love how close the weightloss community is on there and I'm pretty excited to e on it. Only one problem, I never really asked how he feels about it, so I might be taking it down and just blogging on here.. we shall see. Umm So I still havent gotten those Jillian Michaels books BUT my dad bought me "Eat This Not That, supermarket survival guide" and Jillian Michaels 30 day shred! woot woot! So yeah I did the video today and it was pretty hard but definitely do-able! I'm so excited! So I'll be doing that for he next 30 days! and I'm going to try to get up butt early and still get my miles in @ the gym. So hopefully I can finally move out of the 160's!!! FOR GOOD! I will be weighing myself on Wednesdays now, and posting new videos that day on youtube aswell. So if you're interested in waching my goofy butt.. yeah! there you go!

Thanks for reading!! <3

Stuck in a rut!

But I'm comin out of it slowly but surely!! So let me semi recap my last week or so... Valentines day wasnt that bad, I eat well the entire day. My husband was to work all night but he got off early ( 9pm) So I ran around the kitchen like a crazy person and proceeded to whip up some Italian dressing baked chicken breasts, with a side of broccoli and a side of rice. I doubled up on broccoli and skipped the rice. Anyhoot that was fine and dandy except we ate really late. Bleh! Next mornin I didnt get a work out in and went and had steak and a hefty serving of sauted veggies for dinner at my in-laws. Monday I did work out but only did 1 mile instead of my usual 2, Tuesday was the same thing this time because I woke up late and the hubby had to go to school. Wednesday was my hunny's birthday and we ate a chinese buffet. Thats basically where it has gone down hill from there.. I started out well there, I had a huge salad which was delicious, but temptation most definitely got the best of me. I ended up leavin the place feeling over stuffed to the point of wanting to just throw up! I havent done that in a while! It was gross and you would think that would be the end of it but no.... We went to CiCi's Pizza yesterday and I ate like the old me. I wish that girl was just dead and gone for good! Grrrr...

So I'm planning on getting up at the crack of dawn and getting a full hr on the treadmill tomorrow which means actually getting up when my alarm goes off and not hitting that damn snooze button! This weekend I'm going to start my Slim in Six work out videos. I need something else to keep me motivated, I'm guessin just doin the treadmill is boring me and thats why I've been eating like I have and just been in a slump. Oh and the fact that the scale isnt going down a lot. I mean I've been going up and down 5 lbs for the last 2-3 weeks and its driving me insane! I'm ordering a couple of Jillian Michaels' books and hoping that she can kick my butt in gear because I'm doing a pretty crap job of it!! thanks for reading my rambles if you've made it this far!!

Asthma.. me jode la vida!

Me and my fabulous family went out and got some new sneakers yesterday! So exciting! I never thought I'd actually be this happy about a pair of sneakers but now that I'm changing my life and excercise is part of my life from here on out.. It makes sense to have some nice supportive and comfy shoes! So yay!! to that!
Last night I went over to a friends house around 8:30pm, I stayed till 11. I am deathly allergic to pet dander. Cats, especially but now dogs get me going too! That said, I know she has like 3-4 cats and a pitbull. But I stayed there that long regardless. I'm an idiot. I figured since we were hanging out in her garage playing her Wii that I'd be alright..Well not so much. All night I had to keep getting up and using my dang inhaler! And then when I woke up this morning at 5:30 with all intentions of working out, Ididn't wuite make it out the door. :( But I'm feeling much better now and I plan on going to workout around 12:30-1 pm. If my darling husband says it's alright. He goes to school full time and also works 20-30 hrs a week as a waiter. I'm really hoping he says it's fine because that IS the girls naptime and therefore he can just relax or catch up on homework while I go break in my new shoes!
I really need to kick up my "diet" part of this. I need to go to the grocery store and re-up on just about everything healthy! And I REALLY need to get on this water thing. I was doing so good up until the day before yesterday.. anywho thats all for now! Thanks for reading!

It's always something!!

So I've been running with one of my friends like 5 times a week. It's been awesome except for the fact that yesterday as we finished our second mile.. my shins (sp?) started to hurt so I told my husband, just to see if he knew anything about it and what not. Well he said it's because I need new sneakers and I could give myself shin(sp?) splits?? anywho I know what he's talking about now. I've never had them but he has, so yeah. Needless to say he's making me take a WEEK off from the gym. I'm about to have a total melt down. I keep picturing me gaining all the weight back in this one week. I know it's silly and I'm just kidding but it's going to suck not being able to work out. Now that I'm actually enjoying it and looking forward to work outs. BOO! But then again I am getting some fancy shmancy new running sneakers! So next weekend we'll go shoppin and I can get my new kicks! I'll try and put a picture up of them on here too. Because I know everyones excited to see some new fancy new balance zapatos!

side note: At church today about 5 people told me how great I looked!! It was so awesome to hear that my hard work is paying off and not only I can see a difference but so can everyone else!! YAY!

I've decided to start a 21 day challenge for myself that started this morning. They say it takes 21 days for something to become a habit, so I'm setting out to accomplish 3 mini goals.

* Drink 77 oz of water EVERYDAY!
* Run/Walk 2-3 miles a day for 6 days out of the week.
* Do my Slim in Six, Slim and Limber video and Slim in Six pack 6 days/week

I weighed myself tonight and I'm down..drum roll please.. 5 lbs. I'm 155!!! Which brings me 5 lbs closer to my first mini goal of 150!! I'm so ridiculously excited right now! I'm loving this.. I'm so glad everything's clicking in my head now. I know I need to be healthy so I can be a better example for my daughters. I want to be able to run around with them at the park and play sports with out feeling exhausted and like I'm going to die.. I want to feel sexy and see that look in my husbands eyes again, you know the one where you can almost feel how much he loves you and wants you. Yeah, that one.

If I dont blog very often it's because I'm pretty busy most of the day with my kids and husband..friends and LIFE! But I'm going to try to keep posting atleast 3 times a month? and plan to actually use twitter more so you can see how my days go and such.. for whoever is interested..if anyone!! lol
