Slight change of plans. I've been going hard working out and eating right for the last two weeks. I waited till Friday morning to get on the scale. I was 3 pounds heavier. I was devastated and immediately went to pick up a chicken biscuit and hash browns. I was upset all day. Everyone I shared this devastating news with would tell me “It’s because you’re gaining muscle, just stick with it”. BS! I've totally changed how I was eating, cooking every day (I hate) and working out 4 times a week. Last thing I need to be doing is gaining. I might as well have sat home eating French fries. I was in a dark place. I felt like I had wasted two weeks. I was sure I would be down 3-5 pounds by now, instead I’m going up. Even though I didn't want to hear my friends try to justify my weight gain, the fact that they cared enough to listen kept me encouraged. Saturday, woke up in better spirits and decided to keep pressing forward. I knew I had to make more changes.
I don’t want a quick fix but I need to shed some pounds asap. I’m throwing Mister a big party for his upcoming landmark birthday and I want to be FINE! The party is in a couple of weeks and I have a lot of work to do (for the party and my body). I was doing Weight Watchers, which I love, but I think I need to do something a little more drastic. I decided to do a very low carb meal plan. I’m eating a ton of lean meat, veggies and fruit.

As far as working out goes, I've been getting it in. I've been going to boot camp classes at 5:30am, three times a week and doing Zumba twice a week. Since I started working out, I have noticed that my stomach is getting flatter. I didn't take any measurement. I will let my pants be my measuring tool. This may sound really wack, but cute workout clothes motivate me to go to the gym. I reward myself with a new shirt, pants or sports bra if I complete at least 3 workouts in a week. My Marika sports bras are the shiz for my D cups! I got them at Nordstrom Rack for $13 each!
While I’m getting my life together, posts may be a little later (like today) or only a few times a week. I have to put ME first for a change. Have you had any setbacks in your weight loss and fitness plan? How did you deal with it?
