Holiday Re-cap...

Well it happened.
I stepped on the scale this morning and I had gained two pounds.
I'm not really surprised, or even upset.
I expected it to be 207.
All I've done for the last two weeks is eat, drink, eat and drink.
I have probably only made the time to work out about three of those days.
So clearly I knew a gain was coming.
Moving on.
This week will be better, to diet over the holidays takes some serious self control
Something I seriously do not have.



This morning Addy and I are enjoying our protein shake {another thing I haven't had in two weeks}
& tonight I guess I have to do body pump.
I actually really miss it & even two little pounds feels like 10 on my 5'3 bod.
It's gotta gooo!
Like yesterday.

Letting You Drag My Heart Around...

So this week I haven't found any motivation to blog
At all.
Because all that is on my mind is this divorce.
And I don't want to be having a pity party everyday,
but I don't have much Susie Sunshine left in me either...
not this week.

I keep hearinglistening to obsessively
Sarah Evans "Little Bit Stronger"
Trying to convince myself that this is normal...
Like this disgusting ugly shit storm could really be considered normal...

Woke up late today and I still feel the sting of the pain
But I brushed my teeth anyway
I got dressed through the mess and put a smile on my face
I got a little bit stronger
Riding in the car to work and I'm trying to ignore the hurt
So I turned on the radio, stupid song made me think of you
I listened to it for minute but I changed it
I'm getting a little bit stronger, just a little bit stronger
And I'm done hoping that we could work it out
I'm done with how it feels, spinning my wheels
Letting you drag my heart around
And, oh, I'm done thinking that you could ever change
I know my heart will never be the same
But I'm telling myself I'll be okay
Even on my weakest days
I get a little bit stronger

Truth is I think I'm failing miserably.
I think I'm more like a Simple Plan throw back song..."Addicted to You"
Yah' know the one, "I'm a dick, I'm addicted to you"

On Christmas Eve I was served divorce papers by The King...
Well attempted to be served, turns out my other half for seven years never knew my name.
Either that or he was part of the "don't ask, don't tell" policy the military recently instated...before it was cool.
That dumb shit had the papers made out for Alexander name is ALEXANDRA.
Alexander is a b o y.
So the post man wouldn't even give me the papers.
Jokes on you ass hole.
Obviously I called him, screamed profanities, and told him what a massive piece of garbage he was.
Like He Didn't Already Know.
Then I sunk down and leaned against the fridge and full out ugly cried.
Big heaving sobs, snot running down my face.
I felt like the ground was coming out from underneath my feet, and the fridge was my anchor.
I hate hate hate sneaky people.
The King is as sneaky and two faced as it gets...
Clearly he goes for the low blow, he's a snake, that's just not my style...


Now for those of you that don't already know, I filed for divorce in New York.
Two Months Ago...
So again my ignorant husband thinks he's above the law and can file in Arkansas...
News Flash...Yah' Can't.


He has to retract the papers, yadda yadda yadda, and my papers will clearly take precedence.
Now the funny thing is what the papers said.
He wants to pay less child support, not pay for college, or partial daycare & medical expenses.
Like that's surprising.
He also wants partial custody and visitation rights.
Which he originally gave up in favor of me giving up my right to spousal support.
It's all about the benjamins for The King.
Now all of the sudden he wants to have visitation rights...and partial custody...
From 1400 miles away, when he can't even get his hungover lying butt out of bed to Skype Addy ONCE a week on a consistent basis.


Even after he did yet another shitty thing {filing for a bullshit divorce when he can't even make his child support payments}...I can't stay away.
Not that I want him back, believe me I do NOT.
But I just can't get over the fact still that after SEVEN years he just kicked us out.
Just woke up decided he was living a lie, and didn't want to do it anymore.
The problem is I was clueless.
I didn't realize we were lying...
Just like I didn't realize he was being unfaithful...
Because I wasn't doing either of those things.
Because I believed in the vows we spoke.
And because I loved my family & respected my husband.
Because I wasn't a douche bag
I'm so mad, I want him to feel the pain I feel
I want him to look at his baby and see all that he's given up
I want him to look at ME and realize he walked away from the only good thing he ever had in his life.
But I don't think that's gonna happen.
Any of it.
And I need to take my hand off my ass and stop hoping magically he's going to have a lightbulb moment.
There's nothin' going on in that head that doesn't serve The King.
He's a one man kind of guy...Himself.
The only person The King loves is The King.
He is incapable of even loving his own child and putting her first.
His day will come, but I don't think it will be soon.
It's so awful but I cannot wait for the day that he finally falls.
It happens to all the other good sociopaths {Ted Bundy, Jeffery Dahmer}
So it's bound to happen to The King...
I'll be waiting.


Other then the lovely gift of Divorce Papers {the gift the just keeps on giving} from The King, we had a great Christmas.
Addy LOVED everything.
Totally got the Santa thing.
It was awesome.
I'll write about that this week, today I feel like having a pity party.
Deal With It.

Friday, December 21, 2012

I see a glimpse of recognition, but it's too little too late...

Today is December the 21st, which means two things
One, we are all still here so the world didn't end
AND it is The King and My 6 year dating anniversary.
I had totally forgot all week, until last night as I was falling asleep
I recieved a text message at exactly 12:00am

"Happy Anniversary I love you Al. I'm sorry I ruined your life. Thank you for everything you did for me, and for taking care of Addy. I'm so proud of you for doing this. Your so strong. I couldn't do it. I will always love you."

{I'm with you Alexis my girl. eyeeee rollllll.}

{The Funniest thing I've ever heard boo-boo}

{Tamara, it's pretty redic isn't it}

And then I proceeded to cry myself to sleep, because I had forgotten.
This day no longer has meaning anymore, or significance.
I am healing, I am growing, I am closing the gate.
Now I'm not going to pretend that as I read that message I didn't flash back to 6 years ago
The day he kissed me in the parking lot after we went snowboarding
His big brown eyes, and little brown face


And it made me sad, it made that knot in my gut come back
But today it's gone.
Today when the sun is out I realize he is not that boy, and I am no longer that girl
We have grown apart so much these last six years
{mostly due to his ignorant, unfaithful,abusive behavior}
But none-the-less we have some good memories
and one beautiful child out of the mess he
we made.
{who is mine all mine. put your hands in the air for full custody ladies}
For that I am thankful. Beyond thankful.

In the words of the feirce Diva Christina Aguilera
{because I couldn't say it better myself}

It's time you had a tase of loosing
Time the tables turned around
I see a glimpse of recognition
But it's too little, it's too late
And what you thought was your best decision
Just became your worst mistake...

Chew on that feeling for a while Kinger, that's what you left me with for the last four months. I'm glad you finally came around but boyyy I'm done waiting. Live with the choice you made. It IS and forever will be your biggest mistake.

Random Wednesday:Top 20 of 2012

today I'm linking up again with Shana from Because Shana Said So for Random Wednesday #12. I love love love todays topic, because like everyone else my favorite topic is me, myself and I. AND I love to tell you all about the things I like. Today's topic is 20 favorite things from 2012. Can you even belive this year is already coming to an end...I can't, but I am really looking forward to 2013. It has GOTTA be better then the shit storm that was my 2012.

1. Reality Tv:
We all know I am a reality tv junkie, can't get enough. It's nice to see someone else being a train wreck to help give your self esteem a little kick in the butt.

2.Album: This is so tough for me, SO tough. For every phase of this year I have had a different favorite. First it was Adele-21{her song Turning Tables Completely and Acurately Discribed my reality}, Second would be Snow Patrol-Fallen Empires { I am a Snow Patrol fareeaaakk the songs Those Distant Bells & This isn't Everything You Are
were the anthem to the crumbling of my marriage. And Taylor Swift-Red Who doesn't love Taylor Swift?? Okay, no one, that's what I thought. I bought the Album the week after I got home {with a $10 giftcard I got for buying diapers in bulk, holla for a dolla} and I've listened to it every single day since.

3.Sistafranns: I've been away from them for years, and it is SO nice to have them around all the time. I love you girls.

4.Mistresses: Yes, you read that rite. Now this has literally beed the HARDEST thing I have gone through, but now that some time has gone by I can really see that I dodged a bullet with that one. As much as I loved the life we built, I did not love that awful man anymore, how could I. SO take him gurlll, see if he is everything YOU imagined and more.

{ps, he's not, but you deserve eachother}

5. Fashion Trend: peplum tops, colord denim, scarves, riding boots. To be fair my least favorite are shirts with lace inlay, ugh and combat boots. gag me.

{especially if you tuck your skinny jeans into them, ICK}

6. Jewlery: My sideways cross necklace with Addy's initial and birthstone from hot mix cold <3 You can get it here.

7. Home Decor Trend: CHEVRON. I love love love love love it. Love. And all the bold colors that are popular now. Oh AND animal print. Once Addy and I have our own pad everything will be purple,chevron, and animal print!{because I can}

8. Cosmetics: BB cream, ELF anything {seriously as good as my bare minerals and its chaaaaeaaappp} & Bare Minerals lip plumping lip gloss.

9. Place to Shop: I do most of my every day shopping on Amazon, lately I've been loving Express for me and Gymboree for Addy {duh}

10. Favorite Purchase: Hands down Frye Boots. I've wanted them for years, this year I sold some jewlery The King gave me and bought some awesome boots that I can kick his ass in ;) Good trade off I think!

11. Favorite Way Relax: Body Pump, tanning, reality tv.

12. Favorite Exercise: Body Pump, makes me feel so strong & the instructors are hot hot hottttt.

13. Book: Fifty Shades. Tie me up and Spank me <3 14. Tv Show: Non-Reality-Scandal.Mindy Project. Ben&Kate. Reality-Anything housewives

15. I phone app: Amazon. Facebook. Pic-collage. {I'm not an instagrammer}

16. Clothing Item: colored denim.

17. Blog Memory: Finding Holly, then through her finding Lindsey, then through her finding Marcy.

18. Mommy Product: My jogging stroller...tike tech.{It's also a good $100 cheaper now that target is carrying it. LOVE.

19. Family: I've missed them, they are wonderful, and I am so glad to be home.

20. Social Media: Blogger. I started blogging this year, I absolutely love to just be able spew randomness from my mouth, and I LOVE the lovely hookers I have met that have become my friends xoxox.

Dance it out it's Monday

Hey Girlll Heyyyyyyy.

Well Monday has come way to quickly, as usual, this week and every week.
I cannot believe there are now only seven shopping days untill Christmas.
Good thing I am a fantastic online shopper, and scored AMAZING deals
AND didn't even have to get off my bootay and deal with other shoppers to finish my list.
Adaline is getting too much just enough for a princess.
No, but for real...she's getting way too much
A doll
American girl changing table
American girl crib & accessories
American girl baby dr kit {which she will lurvvve, she was using her mistle toe headbang as a stethascope last night.}
MaybeWe will be forcing her against her will to become the doctor mommy dearest always wanted to be, but let The King get in the way of.
Being a SAHM is kind of like being a Dr rite...?
Yah, I don't think so either.
Now back to Spider Monkey's list...
New Colombia fleece, and matching hat
Patten Leather knee high boots
{because why not}
Doll Highchair
Doll Diaper Bag
Toddler Sized Hot Pink Nike Soccer ball
{I NEED to coach rec league soccer not optonal}
An Easel & Craft Supplies {smock too so my OCD can be kept at bay}
Letter Magnets
Dolly Stroller
Gobs of Gymboree {including a fur vest,how could I not}
There's more, but that's all I can think of now, and all I really care to even think about having to wrap!

This weekend was great, Addy & I spent it with family and friends. AND I avoided The King, which is a major MAJOR accomplishment. Turns out all I had to do was tell him he needed to contact my father who is a fervent NRA supporter, concealed pistol permit carrier, who calls the kimber store the nursery...he's always packin' and HATES The King.
{always has.always will.}
Now he's also a big baby, but he's my Daddy
And Daddy's hate anyone who hurts their babies, and even more so their grandbabies.
Lesbihonest The King would be too scared to call Daddy to Skype Adaline...
Mission Accomplished!!!!
Our six year anniversary is this week, it's been 100 days since we seperated
AND I'm just fianlly realizing that I'm done playing his games & I'm done being abused.

Friday night I spent with Mandy, Llama & Rach {Matty too} playing apples to apples and drinking wine<3 Saturday Addy and I layed around all day & at night Grammy and I finished up her Christmas Shopping. Sunday was our family Christmas party with Mom's side {all 60+ of us} I may or may not have had a few meltdowns
{cue the rum & little green Mommy Candy}
After that I felt wonderful and was able to enjoy my child, and avoided a heart attack worrying about her being scared and screaming at Santa {again}

On a more serious note, let's talk about the school shooting in Connecticut. 20 Students {ages 6-7} and 8 Administrators were murdered. Could you even imagine a more awful thing, I know as a mother my heart shattered to pieces as I watch the coverage. How can you help but ask WHY GOD!?!My GOD, your GOD, our GOD is a good and gracious father. He gives us our own free will, what we choose to do with that is of our own to decide. Now after this awful thing happened GOD is holding every one of those little children in his arms, they are home with their father. I find comfort in that. They are safe, and died with their innocence still intact. That is a true blessing in the ugliness of the situation.

I got two AMAZING deals this weekend. Now I am a fantastic online shopper, but I really think I outdid myself this time. I got the Frye boots I have been eyeing for $275 onsale, with an extra 20% off and free shipping, instead of the $433 I was going to pay for them at Zappos. score. The second thing I got was a Michael Kors handbag...I know, I know. I D I E. It has a small defect on the inner lining, I scored it for $199, it retails for $389.
{I don't get it till Christmas though, ugh I cannot wait to smell that leather!}

That moment when you try on Jeggings at a three way mirror and realize that you have a big ass. I carry all my weigh in my boobs{not the worst thing} and my booty{not such a good thing}. Reguardless I am going to keep squating, lunging, and starving myself because I bought the jeans, and a sistaaa has gotta look good from behind!






Dance It Out Divas It's Monday

Friday, December 14, 2012


T G I freakin' F

This week has been...interesting.
Addy has been perfect as usual, and I have had more time off to spend with her cute little butt.
I've gotten all my Christmas Shopping done, even Adaline's stocking.
Now that just leaves wrapping which I absolutely HATE.
Kid's toys should all be in perfectly square boxes...that would just be too easy though.
Eventually I will sit down get drunk have a glass of wine and wrap the presents. eventually.

On Tuesday I got a phone call from The King.
While I was at work, because he's cool like that.
Basically he told me the following:
1. He wanted to hurry up the divorce, we needed to figure out a way
{in New York you have to wait a year for a divorce. he's a idiot}
2.His reasoning for hurrying along the divorce was because he was lonely, and wanted to have someone to talk to.
Hello asshat you could always talk to your w i f e.
3.He then proceeded to tell me that he knows I have MY needs and I need to just move on.
Meaning I need to move into someone else's bed...
Not happening.
4.THEN he decided to scream and yell and point his finger at me again for everything that is wrong in his life.
ALL of which is his choice.
Then he had a pitty party about how he will be alone for Christmas.
In all honesty I DO feel bad for him, how could I not.
BUT to hear him yell at me again, it was like a wake up call
I forgot what that felt like, and I had forgotten while I left.
I left to protect my baby from ever having to be spoken to like that.
I had a good UGLY cry...and now I'm over it.
Now I'm mad...which might be more dangerous then me being sad.
For Adam at least

Operation MILFdom Update

This has been me...all week.
All freakin' week.
Yah, I've been great with doing my exercising, but I have literally eaten
e v e r y t h i n g.everything.
Wahhh I don't even want to weigh next week
Plastic Surgery is looking better and better
If only my budget,which is zero would allow for a little nip tuck suck suck suck

Tonight we have a Christmas party to go to.
The Divas are coming of course.
I went last night to look for a shirt..I got one but I don't love it.
Atleast It was only $11 {holla for a dolla}

Everything I try on that is exactly how I feel...
I never ever ever understand why any one would want fake boobies.
I have DDD (sometimes even F} boobs and I hate the mothers
especailly since they became feed bags my child's food source
Nothing I put on fits my boobs..ever.
Hopefully tonight I won't have a stage 5 melt down and kill everyone with in a 10 foot radius
We also have another family party with the non-drunken redneck side my mom's side
Sooo there will be a lot of pictures taken. oh joy

Have a good weekend girls, I know I will

11 Random Facts:

1. I have a perfect little spider monkey for a child, she weighed 9 pounds 6 ounces and was born via c-section bc she just didn't want to come out {or maybe she was just too big} either way my vagina is still perfectly intact and for that I am thankful.

5. I have to shower after I poop. Every time. Every single time.

9. My Sistafranns Alana & Amanda {The Divas} we all work together at the tanning salon, Lamma and I grew up together {like since diapers} and Mandy Pants and I have been friends for almost 7 years now. They are my favorite people in this whole world, and one of the few things that make me laugh these days.

10. I dream of one day being a cross fit mamma.

11. I have too many clothes, and still never feel like I have enough. It is an issue.

12. {one more for the hell of it} I love the outdoors, hiking, camping {in a camper ofcourse} fishing, hunting. Anything outside makes me a happy girl. Happy Happy Happy {shameless Duck Dynasty Reference}

Ash's 11 Questions For Me:

When/Why did you start blogging?
In June I believe, after I discovered Mamma L, but slowed down a LOT when The King and I first seperated. It wasn't till recently I started really dedicating my time to my blog, and using it as a journal. {it makes me feel better and it's cheaper then therapy}

What is your biggest pet peeve?
Ahh. Do I have to pick just one...okay top three...Loud breathing, Loud Chewing, Bad Breath...okay four bad grammar!!

Do you have a degree? If so are you using it?
Mehh, I've started my Associates two times now, Classes start again January 22, third times a charm. Plus I don't really have a choice anymore, I have a spider monkey to support.

What is your favorite Christmas movie?
ANYTHING on the Hallmark Channel...I'm addicted. If it has a love story AND Santa in it, well then I'll watch it.

What is your favorite part of the Christmas season?
Hands down the presentsthe tree. Though I do love buying Addy insane amounts of stuff now that she doesn't need and feeling like I have an excuse. I'm also really looking forward to sitting on the Big Man's lap...I'll take what I can get these days.

What do you enjoy blogging about the most about?
well, this is supposed to be a fit blog, but sometimes I'm not always on my A I fill in the gaps with real life stuff like being a newly single mother, and stories about The Divas.

Do you like your job? If not what is your dream job?
My current a tanning salon. Absolutely NOT. I worked here before I ran off and marrried the Devil all through highschool {and it just so happens to be where I met my very best friend, and all of my friends actually work} BUT I interviewed for a Dental Assisting Job at a pediatric dentist last week && I'm really praying I get it. I'm going to be going to become a Dental Hygenist so the expirence would be amazeballs. {again not my dream job, my dream job was being a stay at home mom, but that rug got ripped out from under me. SO dental hygenist is a nice clean job with minimum stress and a gurantee to make $70,000 a year, I will take it!}

New Year's Resolutions?
I don't really buy onto the new years resolution hype, mostly because I am a procrastinator with minimal follow through. BUT this year The Divas and I are doing a 52 in 52 challenge for 2013...thats kind of like a resolution rite?

Do you volunteer at all?
Not Currently, I used to work at the nursery at our church. I'm too much of a basket case rite now to offer my services to anyone, they would surely try and take advantage of a return policy.

Best advice you have ever gotten?
hmm. let go and let god. live in the moment. Something I struggle with daily, hourly, every single second.

What would your last meal be?
In true fat girl fashion. Pasta. Lots and lots of pasta.

Best or Worst Week Ever? You Decide...

Helene in Between

Today is obviously that means I am linking up with Helene and Erin for a little tell me about it Tuesday. Check it out. Link up. Make some new blogger friends {and maybe even some real life ones too}.

In the News This Week

This was either the Best or Worst week ever in the news you decide

1. First things first this morning Psy Gangnam..
The guy that has americans, galluping like drunken horses. We're talking about psy, the south korean rapper behind the "gangnam style" phase. As if that whole cultural phenomonon didn't already leave me scratching my it certainly does. In 2004, after a korean missionary was killed in iraq, psy performed at a protest concert. Singing along to another band's song called "dear american" including these lyrics. Kill those bleeping yankees. Later he "explained" in a statement, "the song I was featured in years ago, was part of a deeply emotional reaction to the war in iraq and the killing of two korean schoolgirls." In the lyrics he talks about killing American children and eye for an eye Psy? He has become so popular, he headlines this year's american usic awards...hmmm. American's need to be more educated about the people they idolize...That man is not a man I want my child looking up person I see "Gangman Style" dancing, is getting a donkey kick to the head.

2. Pranking of King Edward VII hospital in England...
Now I don't know if you watch the news or not, but I cannot get enough of it. Either way if you don't live under a rock I hope you know what I'm talking about...Kate got really bad morning sickness bitch puhleeasseee.Well the controversey that surrounds this story is all about two Austrailian DJs who called and "pranked" the hospital pretending to be The Queen and Prince Charles. The nurse who they spoke to later was found dead a few blocks from the hospital. The network has since cancled the Radio Show...ridiculious. I'm with you Star Jones, sistafrann, I think it's insane to blame the radio show hosts for this woman's death. If she didn't realize when the clucking about corgies began that it was a joke...that's her problem noth theirs. Give 'em their show back && stop being so damn sensitive. Frankly I'm just sick of hearing about it on the morning show, 5 o'clock, 5:30, 6 and 6:30 news every day for the last week or so since it's happened...annnoyyyinnnggg.

3. Celebrities in Ugly Christmas Sweaters...
Truthfully I cannot believe this story even made the news or can I,
BUT reguardless it's funny, to see celebrities looking like fools and serves no other purpose then to prove Matt Damon can wear the ugliest thing I have ever seen and still be smokin' hottttt.
{If you're reading this Matty Boy, yes yes yes I WILL absolutely have your babies}

4.Beyonce's Pepsi Deal...
Now, this sexy mamma needs no introduction. BUT in headlines this week there is talk about her 50million dollar Pepsi deal. Holy Shit Balls...can you even imagine what 50million dollars looks like...let alone what you would do with it. If I had 50 million dollars I probably would follow suit and like Beyonce name my kid something ridiculious like Red Geranium, and booty pop all over town. Dang girl, werrrkkk it!

5. Twitter..Top Tweets of the Year
This years top tweets were from The Beibs and Mr.President. Upon re-election Obama's tweet got 810,000 re-tweets and 300,000 likes. When Bieber's super fan 6 year-old Avalanna Routh died from cancer he expressed his sadness in what other form then a tweet? The Beibs got 220,000 re-tweets on that post!!!

Now these are all pop culture new headlines, other things in the news this week {that take higher precidence} are HSBC's money laundering scandal, Egypts inevitable cliff surrounding constant political and economic termoil, or the 28 year old bronze star recipient and Navy Seal who was killed in Afghanistan while participating in a mission to rescue an Afghnai Dr.

Any one else have any wacky news headlines they would like to tell me about, please do share...

Taking The P L U N G E...

SO I have decided today is the day..
And by the day I mean the day I take off all my clothes for you boo-boo
Yes I'm talkin' to Y O U!!
Lately I've been noticing boys again...
Or maybe I should say men, yah they're definitely men...
eventually I am going to have to get naked with someone
Someone who didn't see my body before stretch marks and cellulite took residency on every surface.
Someone who's child I did not carry, creating all those marks.
Someone who I want to be able to be naked with and leave the lights O N.
Someone who isn't Adam.
And truth be told there is a saucy little diva doing a dance in my pants...
And she is counting the days till this divorce is finalized and she can run around buck nekkid!
Kidding, I wouldn't really do that, BUT I want to be comfortable enough with my body that I wouldn't be pooping my pants thinking about being naked with a member of the male species!

Today is day one of my 90 day challenge

I started doing Les Mills Body pump about three weeks before the bomb was dropped and saw awesome results.
A W E S O M E. F A N T A S T I C. A M A Z E B A L L S.
But I didn't finish...
I spent my first 3 months shoving down my emotions & shoving my face.
Well, that didn't solve a dang thing! {{Who wouldda thunk it?}}

SOOO now I am turning over a new leaf.
I am in control of my story, my life, my future. no one else.
I cannot control or change my past, and now I need to create my own identity.
And most of all, beyond being Addy's mother, a successful student, a good employee, a lovable family member, or an independent womannnnn {{throw your hands up at me}}...
I want to find my inner fit chick

Tonight I started Day 1...
I spent 30 minutes doing fire30 with Mrs.Johnson, then followed that with 55 minutes with the hottest sweeds I have ever seen. {{Pedder....swooonnnn}}

My Work-Out schedule over the next 90 days will consist of some two-a-days, some yoga, HIIT, and lots of time with the barbell. Now this isn't an "official" schedule from either program, it's something I put together based on time that I have each day, and my favorite work outs in the programs.

Fire 30 (30 minutes kick boxing)
Pump Revolution (55 min)

HIIT 20 (20 minutes of High Intensity Interval Training)
Pump and Shred (45 Minutes)

Fire 30 (30 minutes kick boxing)
Pump and Burn (30 minutes)

HIIT 20 (20 minutes of High Intensity Interval Training)
Les Mills Flow (20 minutes yoga)

And now for my Day 1 Picture...EEKKKK

Yep, I really just did that
Excuse the sweat glistening on my bod
I just finished my 90 minutes of hell

Day one measurements:
Left arm- 12 1/4
Right arm- 12 1/2
Chest- 36
Waist- 31
Hips- 43 {I remember when I started this # was 56 inches huh yikes}
Left Thigh- 23 1/4
Right Thigh- 23 1/2

AND just so I can make myself feel better about posting THAT you all can see how far I have come over the last year and 70 pounds, here are a few oldies...


Now this makes me want to jump off a bridge, and jump for joy at the same time...when you see pictures of yourself you really really really can see how far you have come, AND it feels good. For the record, I cannot even wear those jeans anymore bc they are too big! wooty woot woot!

If you remember correctly, those pictures in THAT shirt are the ones that changed it all for me...It is a men's large and was SKIN tight! Now it's actually really baggy! And that feels awesome!

I have come really far in a year, and so much has changed, in these next 90 days I will loose at least 25 pounds, that's roughly 2 pounds a week, and totally do-able! I'm ready for a change, I'm ready to rock some leather leggings and nude heels and know I'm not hiding any cellulite underneath.

ready set go
