Insanity/Shakeology!

15 Nov

Wow.

It has sure been a while since I posted here. And quite frankly the reason why I havent posted is that I havent had anything interesting at all happen. Until now.

I have still been weighing in at the same weights and I thought that it was getting really boring to be continually posting my “185 ish” weights, when it really isnt budging. And then, I sort of stumbled into something that I wasnt expecting to.

I have been following TrulyJess for a couple of years and just recently realized that she has a sister. I started to follow her on instagram and quickly realized that I can really relate to her. Then I kept seeing her posting about how she is a Beach Body coach and that you can email her for more information. And thats exactly what I did.

Fast forward 2 weeks later and I am now on day 2 of shakeology, and am starting my insanity program on Monday. I am also in a group with so many amazing young women on this same weight loss journey and it is so inspiring. I am truly excited to see what I can change about my body.

So here is to change, support, and love. To getting through this journey together. And to becoming better people and lifelong friends! 🙂

Hooray for November!

November. Its November. Oh how I am ready for this.

It seems that I have not been as attentive within the past couple months as I should have been. Looking back at my posts proves that. I haven’t been working out, haven’t fully committed myself to eating healthy, and my weight loss has suffered from that. I have been in the mid 180’s for wayyyy too long. And to be completely honest, I’m ready for it to be over.

So here is to a new month. A new beginning. It is a time to restart and reevaluate. That is what I am going to do today after I get out of work. I am going to go to the gym. And then maybe to Barnes and Noble, and then I am going to sit down and really evaluate what I am going to do to lose this weight. Obviously it hasn’t been losing itself. I need to do something, and I will do something.

I have been thinking about using the app GymPact. It is probably one of the most interesting apps I have come across. You make a pact to go to the gym a certain amount of days each week. When you don’t keep your pact and you fall short of your goal you get charged the amount that you chose at the set up of the app. (It starts at $5 and goes up by 5 dollar increments). But the upside is each week that you keep your pact you get paid by the people who didn’t keep their pact! This is absolutely brilliant! Who knew you could get a monetary reward for going to the gym!

I think that once I sit down and get a set eating/workout plan down I will be seeing results! They have to come eventually right?

P.S. I will post my updated plan sometime this weekend so that you all know what my plans are!
