Back to the Basics

For the past week and a half or so, the scale has gone up and down about 2 lbs.  I'm not happy with that.  But I know I can't blame anyone but myself.  And instead of blaming myself and getting wrapped up in that, I'm going to choose to move on.  I have been SUPER slack on exercising so that's a huge thing.  And this past weekend, I had a really small sliver of cake.  So no wonder.  I'm going to go to the store tonight and stock up on protein shakes and just go back to the basics for a few days to jump start my body in the right direction and get any lingering carbs out of my body.  I'm not going to obsess over the 2lbs but I am going to take care of what I know I'm doing wrong.  I also have to get more water in.  So I'm going to do a liquid diet with a small balanced meal for dinner.  I mean, don't get me wrong, it's not like I'm eating more than what I'm supposed to.  I only eat 3oz at a meal but I haven't been doing well with my choices and since this is a life change, I need to get that under control pronto.  I'm so close to the weight I was when I graduated high school (granted, I still wasn't small in any sense of the word).  I need to hit the gym so I look better at that weight than I did 11 years ago.  So really I need to go back to the basics for that too....strength training.  I don't know why I'm being such a slacker.  I just need to get in there and do it.  Maybe I'll make it tonight.  I know I'm not the only one that struggles with this stuff.  What do you do to keep your motivation going? or to kick start that motivation when it sneaks out the door?

I'm really hoping to have a sneak peek from the photoshoot we did on the 14th.  I am nervous and excited at the same time to see them.  I went and had my makeup done (fake lashes and all) for the shoot and it was way more than I'm used to but I know that usually photographs pretty well.  I just don't really know what to expect.

I put my 4 month progress pictures up on the progress page.  I bought new jeans lol  So they actually fit unlike my 3 month progress pictures :)  I lost 8 lbs last month.  I'd like to lose at least 10 this month.  Which means I need to get off my lazy butt and just go for it.

Oh and baby fever....mercy....calm yourself!



  1. Like your new jeans!

    I just wrote a whole blog about back to basics last week...

    One thing that I had let slide was really only waiting about 20 mins after meals to drink. I've now pushed it to a min of 45 and it does help a lot (with keeping the hunger down.)

  2. Thanks! I read your blog about that. I thought it was very helpful...I may have just forgotten to comment (sorry!). I am bad at drinking too soon after meals or too soon before. Thanks for posting that so I can look at it again :)
