I've been MIA

First off I have to apologize for being MIA. It's been crazy getting my mom's blog up & running! I'm planning on going back to daily posts starting Mon July 2nd. I have a ton going on until then.

However I just had to update that I'm feeling great & eating vegan to aide in some stomach problems that I've had as I believe that this is the reason that I've had a hard time losing weight.

So I'm happy to report that I lost 4.5 lbs between Mon & Thurs. it's a great start and definitely enough to keep me on track throughout my journey.

Plus my tummy is thanking me!!

Days 5-11 Doing Good

I have been perservering in this journey but I am finding it hard to really get where I am going and to get the results that I want.  I am on my journey now to veganism.  I was eating vegan for a while and I did so good that I am going to be doing a seven day liquid diet cleanse (thanks to Body by Vi I will have some assistance in this).  Then I am going to be going all out vegan.  I will admit that I might have a little moment of trial this weekend but we are going to get through it.  I am making sweet treats for after my daughter's dance recital and I am going to make some that vegan to go with the cake balls and cupcakes that obvioulsy are not. 

I will keep you updated and I will keep you posted on my vegan progress.  Get ready for some fun!!  We can continue on this journey together.  I just know that this was the best way that I was able to lose weight in the past and so this is the way that I am going to challenge myself into losing the weight fast now.  I need to order some Dr Cow cheeses though for our upcoming camping trip.

Day 4 of 90

Well I'm excited to see if my measurements have changed at all. I feel like my belly is less poofy & I feel much less bloated. I've given up soda and while hard I just keep pushing water & it's getting easier.

I'm hoping more for inches lost than weight lost! We all know that's what counts anyways because I just want to wear my skinny jeans & look good in them. Another big yay for today has been the exercises that I did. I did 50 modified push ups, 50 lunges each leg, 50 squats, 250 crunches, & 50 chair dips. That's right five easy moves! It doesn't take that long & it feels good to know I'm going to be more toned. I did them in a circuit...push ups, squats, crunches, chair dips, & lunges. What is your favorite easy work out especially if you have little ones. I did 10 of each move in 5 circuits of all of the moves except the crunches & I did 50 of them!

So here are the measurements

Neck-14 1/4
Bicep-13 1/2
Chest- 44
Just below chest-37
Upper tummy-40 1/2
Mid tummy-43 1/2
Lower tummy-47
Upper hips-48
Mid hips-49 3/4
Lower hips-49 1/2
Thigh-26 1/2
Calf-16 1/4

I've lost 7 1/2 inches total! That's amazing to me in 4 days!!!

Day 2 of 90...

Things seem to be going well.  I have found a great way to flavor my Body by Vi shakes with just a little bit of creamer.  I have added a tablespoon of the Bailey's brand creamer in the pecans and cream flavor.  It tastes like a prailines and cream's amazing.  Best part is that this only adds 40 calories so with using almond milk you are just at the same calories as you would have been with skim milk.  It is amazing how delicious something healthy can be.

There are so many other things that I am doing.  The big need that I have is to work out each day.  I am finding it so hard to get those damned workouts in.  I'm revamping my food. 

Yesterday I did awesome foodwise...had my shake for breakfast, no morning snacks for lunch I had a bowl of whole grain rotini noodles with feta cheese, spinach, fresh lemon juice, and lemon rind that was grated in there....yummy!  Then for supper the man grilled out.  It was nice to have a night off.  I had a portobella sandwich with one thin slice of provolone (the thin slices still taste great and offer just half of the fat and calories) and fresh spinach.  Then I had a piece of corn on the cob with fat free butter spray and a bit of salt and pepper.  It too was delicious and of course healthy.  For a treat I had a 1/2 cup of fat free frozen yogurt in a cone and I also had a brownie that I made with Greek yogurt in place of the stuff that you're supposed to mix in.  They were pretty good especially considering how delicious that they were.

I'm working hard on getting these pounds off.  I want so bad to fit into my skinny jeans before my baby turns one.  I'd like to before my 30th birthday in July but am a bit scared that I can't make it.  I am going to be roasting some fresh garlic in a bit and spreading it on some foccacia and having a little left over pasta with a slice.  I know that the bread is not the best but what a healthy replacement to traditional garlic bread and thankfully just as much flavor.

For dinner I am not sure what I will have.  We are supposed to be at the fams so I might just pack a shake and drink that or if we eat out I am going to have to really watch it.  There is no room for slip ups and failures b/c the bulk of my weight needs to be off these first 60 days.

I'm really hoping that some of you decide to follow me on this journey.  If you do please email me. 

I'm so excited for you all to be able to go along on my adventure with me.  I'd love to talk to you and laern more things.
