And the weigh-in results for last week are....

Drumroll..... 6.1lbs.  Woo-hoot.  My goal is only 1.5-2lbs a week, but I'll take 6.  Gotta get ready for the annual Palm Springs Moms weekend.

Gonna wrap up week one of C25K today and pick up 30 day shred again tomorrow as well as some weights, and rowing.  Gotta stay on top of it.

Going out to Sushi tonight with some girlfriends.  I tried to find the nutritional values via a website, but didn't have much luck.  I am just gonna have to guess and watch portions and no alcohol, just water.  Should be a good time.  I look forward to seeing my girls since we are so busy these days,  we appreciate the little things and the short get together's we have.

It's on people, it's on!!

I am on a serious kick.  When I get on these kicks, I can drop weight pretty quick.  I did my measurements and BEFORE pictures a couple weeks ago.  So I will do new measurements and pictures in a couple weeks.  My goal is to be down down 10lbs by the Twins birthday May 15th.  More importantly,  a couple less inches in the waist, and chest and at least an inch in the hips, thighs and arms.  We shall see.

The pictures are not pretty and I don't have enough balls, to post them on here. I have another fitness group I am a part of where I post them, but I am not ready to blast the fat on the blog just yet.  give me time and it will all be worth it.  You will ... GASP!  I promise!

I have a pair of jeans I also tried on that I can not button and my goal is to button them by the twins birthday also.  I know once I can get going... there is no stopping me.

I am not realizing I want this for ME.  Not for anyone else.  I already have a man madly in love with me and is supportive in this.  I am trying to encourage him also.

I am finally getting my friends on board with running and getting fit and our goal is another boudoir shoot for the husbands.  We have TWO amazing photographers who have experience in this field and we've all agreed as friends we are going to do an over nighter and do shots once we all hit our goal weights.  It's exciting.  I am looking forward to it because I promised myself I will look twice as good in the next set as I did in the first.

Think I can't do it?  Try me!!!

Finally back at the gym

So I went to the gym last night.  Spur of the moment decision.  Started talking to a gal waiting in line for a class.  Turns out it was called MMA bootcamp.  She said it was intense, but I decided to try it. I will say this... I got my ass handed to me.  It was HARD,  very, very HARD.  I cant do it again for a while because of my school schedule, but I am hoping to pick it back up in the Summer since my class will be an am class.

I did lose 2lbs in the past 3 days.  I still have a bunch to go.  I am hoping to be down 15lbs by June and another 15 by August and the last 15 by November.  45 Flippin pounds.  That's what happens when you stop taking care of yourself and you focus on everyone else.

Still house hunting. Turns out we can afford more then then we thought, so we are FOR SURE planning on staying in the area which is super exciting.

I've got a busy next few weeks.  I am so ready to be done with classes and just enjoy the kids for a while. Oh, and of course the gym.  Go to the gym.  Maybe do some running since we will have the Color Run in Nov again.

This was a blast!  We had so much fun at this race and we're already getting a team together for the San Diego Color Run.  I can't get my camera to upload the pictures for some lame reason, but here is one I pulled off a friends Facebook page.

Okay.... Here's more.

Opps... Been a while

So, I've been busy.  Really busy. The kids are testing at school this week, we've been doing reports,  projects and lots of school related things.  I am on the yearbook staff as a photog and I have been helping wrap up the yearbook as well as doing book fair and other PTA related stuff.  Stuff I said I would NEVER do, I am doing it.  I have to.  I feel I have to contribute to our school which I will add, was a distinguished school this year Whoop!

Anyhow, I just got back from a relaxing weekend with moms.  Cabins in the mountains,  massages,  and NAPS! Did I says naps?  YES!  I took a nap.  I think the 1st real nap in 4 years.  I had a nice time and I think it will be an annual thing... But,  they do feed you massive amounts of food, so I am gonna have to keep that in check. I did do a small hike and some yoga while there though.

House hunting... The search is really beginning to get underway.  Our goal is buy a home and be moved by the end of Summer.  AND... drum-roll.... turns out we can afford to stay in the Rancho/Fontana and maybe even Upland area.  We don't have to go East bound toward Yuciapa. YES!!!  You don't know how much that excites me. I wasn't completely against it, but I knew it was not my first choice and I would not be really happy way out there.  We're going to hopefully see a couple homes this week.  One in Upland which is a smaller older home, but on a huge lot with a pool and is turn key and in our budget.  Another one is in North Fontana and is a huge 2900 SQFT home with a pool and 3 car garage, but it needs some work.  You know how assholes rip off shit.  So it needs AC condensers and a pool filter system, but it looks pretty clean.  It has my LOFT I want and it also has a walk in pantry and a nice kitchen living area. Plus it is a 5BD.  It's getting ready to go to auction, so we wanna get a feel for it and see if it is worth putting in an offer for before action and if they accepted,  we'd score big time.  PLUS,  its still in our district which is where we'd really like to stay.

Color run next week.  Should be fun.  I think there is 6 of us going.  Pics to follow after the race.

Only 5 more weeks left of school for the kids.  Trying to cram in class work and observations at preschools,  getting ready for the twins dance recital,  and our little vacations planned. The twins birthday party and Dave birthday is also in the works.  It's crazy non stop.  So really... no I have not focused on me.  I need to.

I did ride almost 30 miles last week though.  This week I have the same goal, only adding 2 days at the gym if I can squeeze it in.  Oh... and a day at the happiest place on Earth.  We've already gone 7 times this year, but I already miss it.

Still plugging away on MFP.  Well, not this weekend because I didn't have internet (and yes, I did survive), but back to the grind tomorrow.

Slow and steady wins the race.
