AZ Bloggers Meet-up

I had an amazing time hanging out with all of the lovely AZ ladies!!!  It is awesome to spend time with people who get it!!  I look forward to doing it again in September :) :)

I spent a lot of time obsessing about my chub in the group picture (next time I will not be sitting in the front :)..... Then I found a before picture - Ill take the current chub.

I gained....

and I don't really have an explanation for it....

I worked out 5 of 7 days.
I ate under 1500 cals - every day.
I drank a crap ton of water.
I watched my sodium.

I am confused....  I am really upset.


I am going to focus on....

*My energy level is a lot higher
*My mood is better and more stable
*I am sleeping better
*My work clothes are fitting better (another reason I thought for sure there was a good loss)
*3 people at work have asked if I lost more weight

Have a great one ladies :)

The Gym

I have decided that I like group fitness classes - no matter how much I suck, I have too much pride to quit so it is a sure fire way to make me stay at the gym and sweating for an hour. I have absolutely no rhythm - none, nada but I have been doing Zumba... After a few weeks, I thought that I had shaken the I look like a fat idiot with no rhythm feeling and then last Wed I go and my daughter's old teacher is teaching the class a several other teachers from her school are there.... Awkward but oh well over it - I am there for me, not anyone else.

I have been to the gym 5 times since last boobs weigh-in. I am really really hoping the scales reflects my efforts.  I have avoided it all week - not even a peek!

I am hear to tell you (mostly tell myself) that you have to workout to be successful - I know that all of you do.  I did not workout for a year after surgery and it was a really big shock to find out that I couldn't even do the workouts that I could do at 267lbs!! Heres to moving forward!

1. It is 68 degrees in my office - I am currently wearing two sweaters and a blanket...  It is 100 outside!  WTHeck!!
2.I am sick of the heat/humidity.... this summer has seemed extra bad to me. I have lived here all my life and have not been this effect by it.
3. I am having a staycation this weekend with one of my besties.  I am excited. I hope it doesn't rain on Saturday..... Any other day is fine.
4. I am getting a fill on the 23rd - I need it big time!
5. There needs to be a way to ingest lots of water and not have to pee every five minutes!! 
6. Having a 10.5 year old girl is emotionally exhausting - she is super emotional about everything!!! I love her more than anything in this world and I am terrified for the teenage years! 
7. I decided to take a leave of absence from my masters program.  I think I need a break and I am having too much trouble trying to balance everything.  Right now I need to focus on family and weight loss. 
8. Group exercise is proving to be the best workout for me.  No matter how much I don't want to go, I my pride wont let me quit.
9. I'm cold..... in case I forgot to mention that.... FREEZING is a better word actually.
10. Common weekend!

Starbucks - Chipolte Chicken Bistro Box

I left my lunch on the counter today and grabbed this when I got my coffee this morning!!  This was really good and it is bandster size (in real life).  I didn't eat the tortillas b/c I have issues with tortillas in general.

Switching your BC pill and antidepressant at the same time (even if your dr thinks it is beneficial) = mental mess! :(
