Day 149: Fighting the good fight

I was down to 137 lbs the other day. With my crazy Crossfit workouts and my busy schedule, it's easy for me to combine meals with these GNC shakes and protein bars... which equals more calories. Yesterday, I had almost 2k calories in my day, which I didn't realize until I recorded it in MFP.

That's why this morning I saw I was back up to 140, and feel like it too! Yuck.So today, I'm aiming to have about a 1000 calorie deficit leftover to make up for yesterday and tomorrow. Yes, tomorrow I have a special day planned and am NOT worrying about this diet! =]

Every day is not a win, and every day is not a loss. Just have to keep consistent.

Day 146: Cont'd

Today's workout:

PACE active warm up 3 rounds of 20
10 min Concept 2 rowing machine
Wall squats, front squats, jumping squats 3 rounds of 10
walking lunges
back extensions, push ups 3 rounds of 20
70 sit ups
100 crunches
100 calories burned on the treadmill

I am totally exhausted. Just a few minutes ago, I completed my diary on and it read, 'If every day were today, you'd weigh 129 lbs in 5 weeks.' Just seeing that I'm actually so close to my goal of 125 after all these years makes me so happy!

Workout Tune of The Day

Day 146: 138

I did a double take on the scale this morning. After about six consecutive weigh-in's I saw 138.

So not only have I broken through my plateau, but now it's as if my weight loss is Full-On, triple rainbow awesomeness action.
Yes! I'm excited. It hasn't been easy. Waking up at 7 a.m. and doing Kipping Pull-Ups with Lenny is not normal. In fact, it's hardcore badass athleticism, coming from a girl who was less than five months ago, pushing obese, exhausted, and miserable.

For my entire life, I wanted to be an actress. Not just an actress, but a sci-fi chick. I wanted to be a Milla Jovovich or like Linda Hamilton in Terminator 2. I've just always been so far from actually being there physically.

I will be there. I can assure you. At the rate I'm training now, it's almost comparable to the celebrity 'bouncing back after pregnancy.' That's exactly how I feel. I feel like I've been carrying around this inner child that didn't want to grow up. I had doubted myself. I never actually gave that 110% it takes to earn that body. It's utterly insane to believe that anyone can just 'naturally' look that badass. No, these women train hard and eat clean to become movie-ready. This is why they get paid millions for their hard work!

I'm only 13 lbs away from my goal now. The day I hit that number on the scale, I'll feel like a superstar myself. I already do,
