I haven't posted here in a LONG time. I honestly can list 100 excuses if I wanted to but I won't bore you with them.

I do want to make an announcement.....

I am getting Married. I got engaged on July 13, 2008 and we are planning our wedding for May 2009. Because this blog's sole purpose was for my health and weight loss I am thinking about starting a new blog for the wedding.

I do not have any plans to take this site down but I know my updates will be few and far between. I am still going to be working on my weight loss but I don't want this blog to turn into everything about weddings. Once I start a new blog I'll post the link!!

I just wanted to post a little update.

I am really proud of myself. I have honestly gotten back into the workout scene around here :) I have consistently been going to the gym every day during the week and making a conscious effort to have a long workout on the weekends. I've been alternating morning workouts and evening workouts based on the schedule at the gym and it's been great. The days where I work out at nice seem like a gift because I can "sleep in".

I've noticed my weight is going down. As of this morning I weighed in at 173.2!!! I am determined to be in the 170's before I go on vacation at the end of the month.

I do think I am struggling with a small cold. My throat is a bit scratchy, nose is runny and my eyes are watery. I may try to head home from work a bit early but I'm afraid I will get the urge to snack. I've already told myself if I do go home I must eat the lunch I packed for myself today.

I still need to post about something exciting coming up!!!!! I am running a half marathon in August. I want to create a start post for my training and get a schedule together to regularly post on my progress.

So my weight has been totally random the past few weeks. One day it's down to 174 and the next it's 178. I dont know what is going on.

I've been very consistent with my workouts and food. I guess I just need to give it another week or two and I should start to see the difference.

I have my official weigh in at work today so I'm hoping it's at least lower that 180lbs.

Monday morning

Hey everyone!

I had a fantastic weekend. I hung out with friends and the boyfriend. I had a BAD breakfast on Saturday morning but it was too tasty to pass up.

On Sunday I took my new bike out for a ride. I ended up going 15miles and was exhausted by the time I got home. It feels so good to be working out again. My weight is still fluctuating but I'm feeling stronger. My muscles were incredibly sore last week and I'm hoping it wont be so bad after this week.

I'm thinking about investing in a nice heart rate monitoring watch. It will be nice to have while riding my bike as well as going to the gym. If anyone has any suggestions on models they like please let me know!

Vacation goal

So I am going to Jamaica at the end of March with my Mom. She is going as a business trip so the whole trip is paid for! I am so excited!!!!

I want to set a goal to weight 170lbs before I go. That means I need to lose 5lbs in 4 weeks. I know this is possible but I have to stay focused.

As of this morning I weight in at 175.2lbs!

New toy

Today I purchased this...

It's a road bike. I've been looking for one of these for a long time but I didnt want to put a lot of money into it. This bike retails at $1,200 and let me assure you I paid less than half of that. It was a lot of money to spend but I am confident I got a good deal.

I love spinning and the thought of being able to ride outside on a nice day sounds wonderful. I even got a helmet thrown into the deal!!!

Now all I need is a good day to ride. I am hoping the weather is nice this weekend and I can take her out!

Weekend and excuses

I had another weekend out of town. As much as I love traveling it's hard sometimes to be on the go all the time. I spent well over 12 hours in the car but it was worth it to see friends and family.

I am having a hard time getting motivated to go to the gym. I need to go to the gym because I think it will be good for me to break a sweat and I'll feel better about myself. The weather is just gloomy here and all I want to do is go to bed.

Can someone help me find my motivation???
