Checking in on my week one of being back on track, back to working on my fitness. 4 pounds down!! woohoo. 

Successful week of low carb, and exercise. I hit the gym hard before work tonight. It has kept me more awake haha not feeling so tired sitting at this desk all night like I usually am. I also started a level one 30 day work out challenge today. The jumping jacks are a little much... don't you know fat people don't jump!!! hahaha.. The push ups I did girl ones, but hey like I said just do something!! So I am doing it!

Weekend In The Swamp

Happy Monday!!
This weekend I went to Gainesville, Fl home of the Florida Gators. Many reasons to go this past weekend. First, my super awesome cousin lives there, and goes to school there, and my good friend Chris Mott too! Second, one of my favorite cover bands with friend John Earle lead singer of Who rescued Who played both Friday and Saturday night at an awesome spot called Tall Paul's! Third, the game was Fl vs. TN a huge rivalry game now after Saturdays game Fl has won 9 times in a row! Woohoo chomp chomp! It was an awesome girls weekend with great friends. With Matt being gone my number goal is to stay busy. I'm thankful for Faith to plan a trip and get me out of town!! 

I also stayed strict to my low carb diet. Sooo proud of myself! Tomorrow is weigh in day we will see how good this week has been. Its all I can do to stay off the scale today, but I made a promise one day a week weigh in! I got this!!
I hope everyone has a wonderful week!

The Journey Continues

In an effort to get back to my weight loss I am loving the support I have from my family and close friends. They know how important this is to me, and all the calls, emails, texts, and small words of encouragement are what makes me wanna continue. After losing all the weight I did and then putting 60 pounds back on I know now I had to be ready to get back to it. I know what to do. I was successful and I've still managed to gain 60 pounds from my lowest I lost, but yet keep 100 pounds off. My "I'm back" post in July was just to get it all off my chest and come back to my support group that was there from day one of my journey. I thought I was ready then. I began to make better food choices, but just really wasn't in it. I am now. I started on Tuesday back to the low carb lifestyle that I rocked at for 3 years. So, Tuesdays will be the only day ill get on the scale I recently bought a bike and made plans with a friend to start riding together or walking together once a week. It's all about the people there to help you reach your goals. Looking forward to that.
My boyfriend is a chief in the Navy last on Sept 11th he moved to Groton, CT I am still here in Jacksonville, FL we are gonna make a go at this long distance thing. I remind myself all the time it could be so much worse he's got shore duty there for the next three years. I hope to end up there with him at some point when the time is right for us. He has my heart. Lots of Skype calls and plane rides will be made. He's so good at encouraging me to. Excited to see what the future holds for us. 
Well that's my update!!
