Changing Neighborhoods

I'm going to abandon blogger for awhile. I'm moving to wordpress. So far it's more difficult but once I get the hang of things I think it'll be worth it. So it'll be a bit of a process but here is my new address - http://redhead75.wordpress.com/ Make sure you get this link into your bloggers because that's the one i'll be posting from for now...unless WP starts to piss me off! LOL!

Ever Have One Of Those Days?

Where EVERYTHING goes GREAT! It started off with an awesome cardio session, a great breakfast and a pleasant walk with Boomer. She even found something along the way :)

Then I finally went to Goodwill and Half Price books and I left here at 10a, got all the green lights and made it back by 10:30a! I thought about stopping at Nature's Pharm but I knew I would buy things I really don't need like organic chocolate.

Then I was bored and didn't feel like doing my leg workout so I laid down to take a power nap(don't hate me I don't have any $$). I heard the doorbell ring and it was the UPS man with my Metrx! WOO!

Sweet, you can see my shiny gold tooth in this picture. Well you wouldn't know that's what it was but now you know. My grandpa had a gold tooth so I got one too! His was in the front, not sure I would go that far ;)

So then I was excited about my leg workout because afterwards I would get a chocolate shake! YUM! Okay, although I don't have any $$ these are worth every penny to me :)

Unmotivated Monday

Do all you working people out there have things you need to do and think if only I didn't have to work today I would do ______. I use to think that all the time. I need to take a gazillion books to Half Price Books and i'm procrastinating like crazy! It's getting ready to rain and Boomer is afraid so that's now my excuse ;)

This day started off great! I got up and did an INTENSE half an hour cardio segment. It must have been the energy from the pie yesterday but I was kickin arse! I'm loving this energy I have during my workouts! Now if my strength would only be as intense WATCH OUT! I then took Boomer for a 2.5 mile walk and she's wore out! YES! Wearing a dog out that is half border collie isn't easy. I have an amazing shoulder workout for today and then tonight i'll throw in some step aerobics unless something good is on Oprah and then it'll be incline walking!

I got a new protein powder and it gets an A+++ in my books! YUM! I got the chocolate peanut butter and it's fantastic! I made my little protein brownie and added strawberries before I nuked it and it came out GREAT!

Okay that's enough rambling from me today...unless I think of something else. Oh the storms a comin...gotta stay home now :)

Please Give Me the Willpower......

This is in my house! Typically it wouldn't last more than 2 days but I feel i'm over that. I think my problem is that when I was younger and in my "fat free" craze I would NOT touch nuts at all! I mean they are fat right? So now that i'm more educated I think they are healthy. They are, but not in the amounts I can consume them. So I am going to show myself that I can control this and win!!

Today my mom and I went to Jodi's hometown of Seymour to visit our cousin Bobbi Jo. Did you see that Jodi? We didn't even know LOL!!!! It was a fun visit because she is a hoot to be around. It was her b-day and my mom got her a chocolate pie. On the 45 min drive down there I ate my salad sans chicken but Bobbi cut 3 pieces of pie and I wasn't going to say anything. I did well though, I didn't eat the whipped cream or the crust and only a bit of the chocolate. Best part is I didn't freak out! I felt like a normal person! A few hours later I went out to the car and ate my apple and tuna :) I'll admit when I got home I did a half an hour of cardio but that's it LOL!

I want to get these abs back! I need this visual so that I don't go and eat some PB LOL!!!!!

Woo! Today is sandwich Saturday! I LOVE Saturdays...especially when they involve sandwiches hee hee :) It is SO nice out here today. We had a garage sale and made $62! Now i'm gonna load up all the rest of the junk and take it to Goodwill. I'm going to sale my books at Half Price Books and make some more cash.

I need to do my bi/tri workout today. I just REALLY hate that workout. I would rather do an hour of cardio.

I almost weighed myself this morning. My stomach was empty I felt lean and I was curious. Then I thought again why does that stupid number even matter? If it's not what I want it to be then my day would be ruined so I didn't get on the scale.

My mom gave me her Rockin Roller to sale today. The lady that bought it looked at me and said it must work because you're skinny. I just smiled. What I really wanted to say was, this piece of junk won't work for anyone! Did you eat McD's for breakfast this morning? I did walk to McD's this morning to get Mike a bacon, egg, and cheese biscuit and some dollars for our sale. It felt good to buy that and be healthy and thin. No one knew that is wasn't for me. I was that "she's lucky" girl for a minute. I hate when people say i'm lucky because I'm thin and don't have to worry about things. HELLO!!!! Maybe I should tell them to read my blog and they will find out it takes work and I am a mental case!!!

Don't Look Under Your Bed!

There might be a Green Monster!

These are very good i'll admit...BUT...I miss my Met-rx!

1 cup of unsweetened vanilla almond breeze(drinking skim milk right now though??)
1 scoop chocolate whey protein powder
3 strawberries
1/2 banana frozen
some spinach
some ice
DARN! I forgot the blueberries...oh well.

That was me when I realized I didn't have anymore yummy chocolatey packets left. Plus I think that's about my chest size too HA!

I need more digestive enzymes so I went to the Vitamin Shoppe. Can you believe that is the only thing I bought!! I'm so proud of myself :) I needed more fish oil but I know Target has that cheaper. I almost bought some chocolate vitamin D disks too mmm...but I put them back.

THEN I went to Kroger to get some more ACV. It was lunch time and I was ravenous. I picked up this, that, well i'll just buy some nuts and eat a few, these ice cream bars are only 90 cals...etc..looking at all the nutritional info on EVERYTHING. I bet people think i'm loony. Guess what I left with? ACV, tomatoes, and a dog treat WOO! I'm really excited about this new meal plan and I don't want to screw it up.

My Happy Place

I haven't weighed in a few weeks and I SWEAR i'm happier and leaner! Not knowing what that number is helps my mental state. Sure it may come back to bite me in the ass but the freedom is nice right now. My clothes are loser and i'm eating things I never thought I would get to have! I love Tony...right now LOL!

I've been going by my measurements. Isn't that little girl cute, I swear that looks like me when I was that age...measuring myself ugh.

Measurments 5/31


Measurements 3/16


So something is happening and i'm really pleased with my body right now. Sure being show ready and 107 lbs is when i'm happiest...or is it? Right now and especially since I don't have the $$$ to compete i'm content. I'm not settling or maintaing though! I'm killing my workouts and loving the carbs WOO! This is NOT a bulk phase. This is a show my fat cells whose boss phase!

Man, I want this DVD so bad. Not having money SUCKS! I need a sugar daddy LOL!

Cream of Wheat in my tummy, Cream of Wheat it's so yummy!

Told you i'm LOVING this diet right now LOL! A few months ago I asked Tony if I could eat this to switch things up. He says not yet. So now on this kick butt diet I get it! Only today but still it's a start ;)

My workouts and cardio sessions have been killer! Now I love when the fitness girls posts their workouts and then I can attempt them :) Thanks Em, Lishia, and Jenn!
