And I'm feelin' gooooood

This is the third week of me being back on track and able to push myself during my workouts.
I feel better and I see a difference.

I know I am in all black, which is flattering when it comes to "hiding" your body, but I FEEL like I look good.

Side shots are the most unflattering for me, but today I love how it looks.
Sorry if this post is coming off as vain I just want you all to understand that no matter how long it takes YOU WILL GET THERE.
Whatever your "there is," it will happen.

I have been on this journey for almost 4 years and I am NOT at my goal weight, in fact I have 25 pounds to go.

This photo below just shows how far I've come, and even though my journey isn't done yet.
I am proud of myself.

I AM fit-healthy-happy.
That means more then any number on any scale.

Although I keep my schedule of workouts I am doing something different every day, I take 1-2 rest days per week to allow my body and muscles to recover.
 I fully believe that both of these factors have helped me trim inches and pounds in addition to keeping them off.

I eat healthy 98% of the time and clean 85%, I also LIVE MY LIFE.

What I mean when I say that is I go out with Eddie, friends and family and enjoy myself, I do not count calories, worry about how much booze I am consuming or if I ate too many french fries.
I just make sure I get my butt in the gym the next morning, no matter what.

And I do this every weekend.



  1. This was good to hear today! My body is feeling pretty tired so I'm taking tonight's off working out and that decision just nags at me. But I know that 1-3 days off in a week isn't going to completely derail things! Looking great, gal!

  2. I LOVE this post. I had a really crappy day and this is what I needed to hear. I took two days off this week from exercise due to a head cold I'm battling and I feel awful. I'm 10 pounds away from my goal weight and it seems like I'll never get there. It's also hard because I like to enjoy a few beers on the weekends and many health bloggers don't drink so I feel really guilty! You are the most real blog I read in regards to balancing a social life and healthy eating. You look awesome girl!

  3. Girl, you look SO GOOD!!! You should be so proud of yourself :)
