Day: 118 Follow My Progress on

Now that I'm up to date with my blogging here on, I encourage whoever reads this to consider starting your own profile on Creating your own membership is easy and free. It's easy to connect with other people who are active and also determined to lose weight!

I share my own tips with others on there.

Add me as a friend to check my daily calorie/exercise logs.

This morning, I trained with my trainer Lenny Pace of PACE Performance at 10 a.m.

Today's stats:

Rotating ab bench on the steepest incline 20x sit ups and 20x kettle bell swings. 3 sets.
Lunges on a monster truck tire. Switching legs every 10 reps x 6 times. = 60 lunges
Standing push ups on a weight bar 4x 20 reps

20 min elliptical a.m. = 200 calories

And after today's classes, I'll return for another 20 min on the elliptical.

Total calories consumed today: 1,155

Day 116: Day Off

Today, I'm not weighing in. Why? Last night I was a bad, bad girl. My man and I had a shindig at his apartment. I was starving by the time guests arrived. I must have eaten a bowl of Cheetos and a bowl of Wise butter popcorn. I didn't eat dinner though and I did however burn about 800 calories between strength training and the gym.

Today's stats:
Weight: (Probably up a few water lbs)
Gym: Nah, hell no.

Plans? It's 7 p.m. and I'm already in my jammies. I'm playing around with my Hipstamatic app on my iPhone. Whoever designed this app is genius. Literally anyone can take photos that look instantly professional.

I'm back at the gym starting at 10 a.m. tomorrow. No pain, no gain. 16 more LB's to go. I know these will be the hardest pounds to lose.

I can't believe it's already almost March!

Day 115: 140 LBS! Size 8

Being a fan of keeping my journal's the old-skool way, I had to start this weight loss blog by filling in my details backwards.
Today, Feb 25th.. I hit a new milestone since I began my hard-copy recorded journey in November.

This morning, my weigh-in is:


Created by MyFitnessPal - Free Weight Loss Tools

I almost have a six-pack! It's amazing. I feel so great lately, I got a new haircut to show off my healthy and shiny hair and my confidence is becoming contagious on my friends.

I know my boyfriend definitely notices!!!

Day 114: 142.5

What a morning. I learned one thing. Beware of trainers on an unforgiving day! I had a serious workout at 8 a.m. I barely had a cup of coffee before I made it there for my ass-beating ; ]

Today's Stats:

Cardio: 45 min 450 calories burned Resistance 8
Strength: 20ish Burpee's, 25x3 dumbbell snatch's, lunges, push up bar, row, abs, cobra, back extensions.

Breakfast: 10 a.m. Omelet with a little jack cheese and spinach + some berries
Lunch: Salad with vinaigrette
Dinner: Pork loin and squash

Burned about: 800 Calories between my training and cardio.

Ate about: 1200 calories.

I'm going to feel this in the morning, that's for sure. I'm so close to being in the 130's again. It's been YEARS, even when I was that thin, I wasn't fit like this. I can't believe how fast the weight is coming off since I started really applying myself and taking supplements.

Yesterday, I saw people I hadn't seen since last summer. They couldn't believe how much weight I lost. My old boss didn't even recognize me!

Lenny Pace's motivational quotes on Twitter

So, when I work out with Lenny, he always comes up with these quotes or sayings that make me laugh or get me through my work outs. Since he is totally in the stone-age as far as being techno-literate, I decided to help him begin a Twitter.

Follow him, he has some pretty good motivational quotes which I'll start transferring for you to see!

Day 112: 2/22!

Happy 222 everyone!

222 is a special day and a special number. 222 means 'You're on the right path.' It's a pattern, or synchronicity which appears to those who are on a quest and as we all know, I'm kinda on one right now!

I hope this day brings you as much happiness as I.

Breakfast: Vitamuffin and fruit (clementine and berries)
Lunch: Open faced roast beef sandwich / side salad
Dinner: Flat iron steak and quinoa

Gym: 45 min Elliptical resistance 7
Strength: Cable punches, bench presses, row, pull bar, wood chop, LOADS of lunges (just don't stop and do them right!) and ab bench. Oh and do push ups and pull ups using the bar! You'll def be getting results doing that!
