I crushed today.
I feel good.
I am blessed.
I am sorry that I didn’t blog yesterday. So I’ll wrap up the weekend for anyone who might be reading today.
I know I am not eating enough. I am under my calories every day, especially after I exercise. We’ll see what the nutritionist says on Wednesday. I am not starving. It is what it is.
So Saturday I woke up, forced myself out of bed and hit my walk for 2.8 miles. I could not believe that I got out of bed at 7:45am when I didn’t have to and went and did my walking. It was a little slower than usual but I got it over with. I had a photo shoot to take care of and then some thrifting and looking for studio props… I was tired…. And of course I had a show with the band so needless to say I woke up this morning totally in pain. My feet were on fire. And if you follow me on twitter. I am sure you heard me complain. I had two drinks. But no soda, junk food, candy. Nothing. I can’t believe tomorrow it will be 14 days even without chips or crap.
Today was an all day shoot at the studio. I wasn’t hungry when I woke up for some reason. But I forced down some cereal. Steak and potatoes for dinner. Measured out and logged. It was good.
I am nervous about weighing in tomorrow. I know that my body has to be catching up to things now but I hope I at least lost 5 pounds. That will keep me motivated. That will keep me pushing forward. Well either way I have to push forward.
So we will see tomorrow morning.
This is be kinda quick today because I am just plumb exhausted. I hit my goal at 3pm today and that just kinda rocks on it’s own.
I went to the mall and did 2.5 miles. I was sore. But I did it. I got through.
I had two photo shoots today so i did a lot of steps at the studio and got around as much as I can. So boom by the time I was done my second shoot I had hit goal. The walk in the morning really kick starts the day. It’s pretty awesome. I was slow today but I muddled through. And feel better for it. I am sore as hell. My feet are still on fire.
I went out to eat tonight. A local pizza place. I had a couple sweet tea vodka’s and water and 3 slices of small, Ellio’s size pizza. I still finished under calorie and felt human. I have a shoot at 11am tomorrow so I have to hit the mall and walk first. I can’t really stop. I need a rest day but I can’t not hit my goal. I have a show tomorrow so I am curious to see what the band picked up from dancing and moving around on stage.
So I can’t stop won’t stop. DAMN MILEY CIRUS!
So after a rough day yesterday I woke up and decided that I was going to take today by the balls. Not that I like balls or anything. I mean I like my own fine enough but you know what I mean.
I got out of bed. Grabbed a protein drink, a banana and was out the door. I got to the mall and if you can see form above I rocked out almost two and a half miles. BEAST MODE! If you also look at the pictures above you’ll see where Mrs. Cunningham passed me. WTF. I thought I was doing so well and fanny pack grandma comes flying past me. Well either way I kicked butt at the mall walking. I was glad the stores were closed so I stayed focused. Though I really liked these new Nike Airmax with Flyknit. They are in the window and amazing.
I stopped at Belly Busters on the way home and got 3 scrambled eggs. The guy was in shock that I didn’t want anything else. I think he was upset that I didn’t get any homefries. I couldn’t finish 3. Next time I’ll get two.
The day went pretty smooth. I slammed my fuel band goal and really liked starting my day with the walk. I made decent food choices today. I am not getting enough calories for sure so I’ll work on it tomorrow.
I plan on getting up early again and hitting the mall for my walk. Maybe I’ll do the whole thing twice tomorrow. Who knows.
It’s funny cause I woke up and really didn’t want to eat and just felt blah. I really didn’t want breakfast but muddled through some cereal and a protein drink. I did a little work and then decided that since I had a meeting tonight that I’d do a dvd working out. A one mile walk in place kinda thing. Knocked that out of the park early and then after lunch my head was spinning and that’s when I that I was hit with the fitness bug. I had to hit my goal today or it was going to drive me nutso.
So I got in the car, it was pouring and made my way to Franklin Mills and then walking for 1.75 miles. It wasn’t that easy today and I wasn’t moving that fast but I made it happen. I got close to goal and then hit it around 6pm tonight. But the fact remains that I hit it. I made myself. I had to.
Now I am blessed with being my own boss and doing what I want to do as long as my family and sons are taken care of. So I know not everyone is as lucky as I am in that regard. But I have to hit it and I did.
Walking in the mall has it’s dangers. I bought a nice pair of running shoes today 🙂 Hey. Nike 49.99 🙂 gotta love it.
If you missed my first video blog I’ll leave you with it from today’s walk…

Okay let’s just get right to it tonight. Last week we started this crazy ride. I got on the scale and was 411lbs. Eleven pounds more than I hovered all summer. I had to do something.
I do have a mild OCD with certain things. I can’t just curb on thing or do a little. I have to jump in head first or I can’t cope. If I am going to do this. I had to convince myself more than anything that I had to change things and had to force myself to try and be better. I honestly have no choice. The weight that I put on over the last 3 or 4 years is hindering my quality of life.
So I woke up this morning and laid there in bed staring at the ceiling knowing that I had to walk downstairs and for better or for worse see if I did it. And I finally got the courage and just did it. I lose 11 pounds this week. 11 mother f’ing pounds. Talk about a positive motivator. I even took a picture to prove it to myself later if I needed it.
So I don’t have to tell you I’ve been walking on cloud 9 all day. How did I celebrate? I knew I was going on a little road trip today and I didn’t think that I would hit my goal so I did a workout with my OnDemand. That’s right. Who the hell am I? I worked out before I even did anything today.
I packed a lot of protein and went about my day.
Dinner was turkey burgers and they were pretty damn good.
So what I needed about 700 more fuel points or so to get to my goal so it was off to Franklin Mills to walk the mall to get it done! And done I did. I broke all my fitness records for the week. Calories, Steps, protein, you name it.
This is where I ended up today at 10:30 pm.
3195 Nike Fuel1498 Calories burned
I feel pretty awesome and hope that I can ride this high for another week. I know that it’s not going to be the same loss this week but as long as I am going in the right direction I’ll be happy for sure.
