Could it be?

My face is breaking out, boobs are sore, and other things that may be to gross to mention are happening. I think i'm hitting puberty again!!! Oh Lord please let me get boobs this time too. I'm not asking for much but i'd like to at least fill an

I forgot to mention what a great movie this was!! I want to see it again. I felt like a little kid sitting there with my mommy :) I seriously caught myself staring with my big eyes and mouth opened a few times. It was just one of those forget your woes and feel good movies.

I could have done without seeing The Bee Movie. It wasn't all it was hyped up to be IMO.

I was up early this morning and on the tready for a 35 min walk/run. That is my prescription for the remainder of the week per Tony. I just wish I could run faster in the morning but since one of my workout rooms is right next to the bedroom I can't :( Eventually we plan on building a patio and then i'll put all my equipment out there! I can't wait! If I lived in Florida I could just put it on the deck but since this is Indy it's getting kind of chilly.

This was the first day of my 3 day diet and I actually feel so much better. No yams, whole cup of oats, or rice. I know, I know, i'm crazy for not wanting those things. I actually felt a hunger pang today!!!

Mike and I ate at the table again....I love that guy :)

Monday, November 26, 2007


That was Mike's word used to describe me tonight and I actually agree with him. I can't stop flexing my arms and looking at them. It's like overnight they grew or something. I guess i'll quit whining about the eating because by golly it's actually working.

I got my Tuesday~Thursday meal plan from Tony today and it looks a lot more desireable to me than the one i'm on right now. Not one yam or any rice :) There is still an apple though and cottage cheese mmmmmm......I missed you cottage cheese(stares at the back of thighs*NO NOT YOU).

Mike and I did something odd tonight. We ate at the table!! We are going to start doing that more often. It was nice just to sit there and talk about our day. Of course mine has to do with my workout and my new meal plan cause I don't wanna talk about work when i'm home.

Before I eat another Thanksgiving Dinner

That pic below was taken 3 days prior to my comp. Sorry if I led anyone on LOL! If I still looked like that I wouldn't feel like a chipmunk face. Here is what I look like now. I'm not ashamed because it's all clean minus the few M&M's here and there.

Here are a few of my hair and chipmunk cheeks :)

I should have taken a picture after my hairdresser fixed it. It was really cute. I don't like fixing my hair though so it's really easy to do now.

I bought some hooker boots this morning to go with my Christmas party dress and I love them!! So does Mike :) Now I want more clothes to wear with them!

Next week Tony is going to start me on a macro stagging diet hmmmmm......interesting. I walked my dog this morning in what I call squirrel park. There are tons of them! They were all fat today and it was soooo cute. I told Boomer look they are starting their bulking diet over the winter too. Yes I talk to my dog, I know you all do too :)

Betty Crocker

So my baked macaroni and cheese turned out AWESOME! I am proud of myself and hell yes I had some. My little reese's cup brownies were awesome too. Lori has caught on when I have something linked and you are on a diet don't look :)

Since we got our new laptop all our pictures were on the old one. Mike's dad is a geek and transferred them for us. So I was going through them and got a little sad. Why didn't anyone tell me how good my body looked?

Just kidding. Seeing this makes me want it even more. I'm so excited to see my new muscles. It just sucks that the cottage cheese and chubby cheeks are a part of it. Actually I can't believe how thin my thighs were in some of the pics. Here comes the negative side of my brain.....why can't I naturally be thin? Why is eating oats and yams making me bigger when some women eat like crap all the time but stay thin. Sure they are not healthy but they are thin. Then this side of my brain takes over....April the thin women don't look good, the feminine muscular physique is what you are achieving and the thin women on the tabloids and in crackhouses don't have muscles. It must have been the morphine I was addicted to when I was young geesh.

I saw the Bee Movie and it was okay but nothing like they hyped it up to be. Today I will go and see Enchanted after I walk my doggy!

snip snip

Mmmmmm...I'm sitting here eating my yogurt parfait and baking these. I also just got finished doing extra cardio :)

Yesterday we went hiking and I came to the killer hill that I huff and puff and whine and groan about. So once we started Mike said okay Ape here we go be tough and I thought darnit I am tough so I just took off and ran up the f*cker. Mike was so proud of me and my lungs wanted to kill me. Of course then he took off an ran the next 1/2 mile and I jogged it. I got done and he said I win being all smug and competitive as usual. So I said yes good for you high school track star I just squatted what you weigh yesterday and I still did that:)

I saw Game Plan last weekend and it was a really cute movie. My friend and I went to the matinee so it was cheaper because it wouldn't be worth the full price but the Rock was hot and the little girl in it was a doll. Tomorrow we are going with his family to see the Bee Movie. Then Friday my mom and I are going to see Enchanted. Mike and I have been renting the series Dexter also. It is about a serial killer who kills serial killers. My kind of show and it's great!

Oh yeah, seeing it I know i'm going to be thinking why did I cut my hair AGAIN! Amy Adams has such pretty long red hair. Mine was getting long enough to put in curlers until I went and got it whacked again yesterday :) I think it's cute though but I haven't tried to fix it myself yet so i'll let you know.

When I was taking my socks off today after the treadmill I looked in the mirror and saw a shoulder muscle! I was bending over so I think when I do cut they may be bigger woohoo! Oh I can't wait for cardio and starvation

Trying to stay sane

I talked with Tony on Friday. He asked me how much I weigh right now and I said last time I did I was around 118.4. He said that is fine but he would expect me to way more than that right now!!!! So I woke up yesterday morning, face feeling like I ate a salt lick the night before and weighed.....121.2! WTF! Well Tony was right as usual. The only thing that kept me from crying and not eating breakfast was the fact that we had talked the night before and he reassured me that everything is coming together as it should. So I found some old pics of when I weighed 122 before. When I was so happy to have been at that weight. Now it sucks :) The first pic was taken May 17 of this year and the other was Nov 15.

I'm just trying to stay positive.

Oh boy.....

Well I took some pics today. They aren't very encouraging except I have to remember that I will have to grow in order to grow muscles. By the time May 31st rolls around this will all be worth it.

I remember feeling so good when I was around 112 and actually buying smalls. Well I still fit into those smalls but in my mind i'm not a small. The mind is so weird.

I had a good day off even though work e-mailed me and called me because they needed my help :) Nice to know i'm needed.

These are 8 weeks post comp. My waist has grown 3.5 inches but my hips only 2.5!! My thighs are 2 inches bigger. You can tell my body really holds onto the yams, oats and rice. Blogger is sucking right now so i'll post more later.

"Vacation all I ever wanted".......

You know the song and no i'm not going anywhere :( I'm off until the 26th WooHoo!!! We were planning on going to Florida until Mike's tires went flat, laptop broke and then our Tv installation. Seriously though I don't have that vacation stress and i'm glad we're staying home. That is why I love to cruise. There is always a gym and healthy food for me to choose. I may be pathetic but that is just the way I am.

I got my $40 worth of pills in the mail today. Oh and my $80 of creatine and protein powders last week. No one said getting buff was cheap HA! I'm starting to get use to my chub now. It's not the same chub look as I had Jan 1st. Since i'm on vacation i'll take some pics, after I spray tan my white a$$.

I just need to remember my new mantra: I'm eating to GROW and FUEL my workouts. Mmmm....just finished my Met-rx MRP Yumbles :)

I told Tony today that I haven't done any extra cardio yet this week. I told him I would get some in since i'm on vacation. So my workout for tomorrow are a few abs and 30 mins ending cardio. He said to get some extra in and that is an order LOL!!

Mike has school tonight so I'll probably clean, or I could get on the treadmill. HA! I'm going to clean. Mike and I are looking at a new living room suit and it's dark brown leather and they are sofa recliners. Oh goodness we will veg all weekend if we got that.

Congrats Keisha!

Keisha placed 2nd at her first NPC show! It feels good to know I got beat by someone that can go and almost win NPC LOL! I didn't get to see her on stage but spoke with her Saturday and she said she had leaned down some for this show. I can't wait until they post pics.


Here's is another crappy photo of yesterday.

Kentucky Muscle

My friend Jodi and I went to the prejudging yesterday afternoon. All I can say is WOW!!! Those girls had it going on!!! I was in awe of Elaine Goodland although I don't think she placed that well but she is just beautiful.

Our goal was to see Jenny Lynn but I think she was only at the booth during the evening show so we missed her:( I carry this girls pic in my purse though and I snagged a photo of her! Miss Julie Lohre

My camera sucks taking pics at shows so they didn't turn out that great. You can tell how blinged up the suits are though.

Tony put me back on my bulking diet UGH! Yesterday I got a pumpkin spice nonfat iced latte mmmm......My eating was junk yesterday. I took a pack of tuna and a protein bar and that's all I had until I got home and ran to Arby's and got a Martha's vineyard salad. I'll make up for it today though.

All the beautiful Pros yesterday

I love oats!

Mmmmm.....I'm eating my oats YIPPEE!!

I am going to the in-laws this year for Thanksgiving and think i'll be making macaroni and cheese. I've never made it before so this will be interesting. The pigs I work with are having a pitch in next Friday so I may experiment on them. I try to educate them about nutrition but I think i'm wasting my breath. One of them grabbed a cinnamon roll yesterday and told the other these only have 4g of fat. So I butted in and said how many carbs and sugars do they have? She looked at me like ummm....I said fat is not the only thing you look at. I feel sorry for them because that is the exact way I use to be. Now I don't have to read labels because everything I eat is healthy obviosuly but you would feel sorry for me going down the grocery aisle. I think I have some sort of reading labels disease because I have to look at everything and try and memorize the cals/carb/ and fat content???? I never said I was a sane person.

I did my early cardio again this morning. I think i'll stick with it on Monday, Wednesday and Thursday and stay active on the weekends walking my dog and stuff. Sounds like a plan to me and Tony thought it was great too!!

Finishing my tea and then it's off to work BOO!!!

The Lettuce Post :)

Before you all get worried about me freaking out about eating the lettuce I better post something about it LOL!!

What I meant is that whenever Tony gives me a new meal plan I like to follow it to a "T". I use the exact measurements etc....and lettuce was not on this meal plan. So don't get worried about me :)

I hope everyone has a great week!!

Up and at 'em

I'm up and got my early cardio out of the way!! I'm eating my egg whites and realized I forgot to put splenda on them. They actually don't taste that bad.

If any of you are Colts fans you can blame my hubby for them losing. He has been on a bad luck streak poor guy. First one of his tire blew on him and he has a BMW so those things aren't cheap, second our laptop dies, third he backed my car into something and fourth he closed the garage door on my car HA! Luckily my little car is like me and takes a beating and keeps on kicking. You can't really tell anything happened to it but I can so he'll be getting it fixed soon. So when he went to the game yesterday I told him they would lose because he is bad luck. I shouldn't be so hard on him but he'd say the same about me. He thought I would be a lot madder at him after the garage door incident but I told him those are just computers and cars who cares. Actually I care but when you look at it that way it sounds better. I just went and enjoyed tea with my 81 year old grandma and one of grandpas just turned 96. Go bang my car all you want in another 10 years I won't remember that thing. (okay maybe I will because I love it so much)

Sunday, November 4, 2007

Hi everyone! I am doing fine. I have to get back in the swing of early cardio again or else i'll be over 120 soon! I did it last Monday but when Tony told me I may be doing to much I haven't done it since. I've also been really tired and think i'm fighting off whatever is going around at work. I've been no carbing it since Wednesday and have to say I feel much better. I don't know if i've lost any weight and I don't care I just feel better.

I did break the rules yesterday though. My mom, aunt, grandma and I went to the Tearoom again yesterday and had a blast! I had the same thing I had last time but didn't get the craisins, apples, or cheese or it so it was just lettuce and chicken :) I know bad for eating lettuce but oh well. I passed on the huge slice of chocolate cake that my mom got. The weird thing is I didn't even want it. I know no carb isn't a great diet and can't be followed long without bad consequences but i really do enjoy the no cravings that come with it.

Mike is off to the Colt's game. He decided not to sell the tickets darnit. They were going for $550 a piece!!!

I'm getting ready to go see my mommy. I'm chugging my airborne right now because she is sick :( I took a pic of my rump yesterday. ICKY! I'm getting rolls. They'll be gone soon though i'm not worried.

10 months of progress

Below are my weigh ins for the the year so you can see where I started and where I am right now. I think i'll be weighing in sometime next week too after this 7 day diet. I must confess that Tony meals didn't say 3 oz of tuna, 1/4 tsp of flax oil, and an Almond Joy but hey it happened.

I'll take some pics soon. I can tell I am getting more muscle but on top of that there is more fat too with sucks.

I received mine and Angela's Arnold tickets in the mail yesterday YIPPEE!!
