WOOT WOOT! 6 pounds down since i restarted about a week and a half? Today's Topic. Goals. I don't really have a specific weight goal I really just have a clothing size goal. I would love love love being a size 10/12. I imagine that being about 175 as when I hit 190 i was in a size 14/16. I want to be able to run a 5k. I've dabbled in couch to 5k app but I am coming at it in a different way. Instead of doing the scheduled walk/runs when the person's voice tells you to, I do my walk and when I get that urge to run.. I run. So far so good. I downloaded the app Run Keeper and i love it. It tracks your distance and your pace and so far since i began using it i beat my best time every time. So far those are my two mail goals but they are definitely good goals :) xox- Ashley

I am probably completely jumping the gun here but I'VE LOST 4 POUNDS!!! Monday, I only worked out once but that's okay cuz the last 2 days I worked out twice and guess what.. IT DIDN'T KILL ME!! I've been measuring and portioning my food and so far so good! I had one moment of temptation Tuesday for Whataburger but i fought it and i won. Speaking of cravings, all i ever want is greek food. like.. all.. the... time.. ALL THE TIME. like right now..i'd kill for some dolmas and some gyro meat. I have been looking into investing in a FitBit One but I'm not sure if its necessary. In these last 4 days I have definitely realized something.. it was so hard to get those 50 pounds off the first time and yet so easy to gain it all back and this time around its going to be even harder to get the pounds off but I AM GOING TO DO IT.

I fell off the wagon ..but im back on.

I am ashamed. I am ashamed that I got so far, achieved so much and then turned around and gained almost all of the weight back. I was counting calories for about 2 years but then just got incredibly bored and felt too tied down by it all. I got really unmotivated. This time is going to be different. I will allow myself certain indulgences unlike last time. I'm not going to do the whole 1 cheat day a week because that isn't going to end well. I am going to do 1 cheat day a month and that's only if I need it. I weighed in last night at 244.6 pounds. 244.6 pounds! My goal is to be back at what I was when I last fell off the wagon which was 190 pounds. I look back at photos during that time and I want to be that again. I was happy with myself and with my body. I am currently unemployed so I have a lot of free time on my hands. It sounds nuts but I am going to do 2 work outs a day. Today i started logging my food on the app Lose It again as it did so well last time. I went to the gym at my apartment complex and did the elliptical for 10 mins and walked for 30 mins and let me just say I wanted to quit, I wanted to stop so bad but i didn't I kept going, kept pushing. I was watching Dr. Oz and heard of this vitamin called "chromium picolinate" which is supposed to help your metabolism and how your body breaks down sugars. I started taking 500 mcg per day to see if it helps. I've got 100 tablets to see if its worth it! New "Before" pictures coming soon!

Happy New Year!!

SO this year the only resolution i have made is to lose those last 40 pounds. I had fallen off the wagon since christmas but today is day 2 of being on track and so far im doing pretty well.

Kelly wanted to join the gym with me so i got him a special free pass to my gym. We went today.. he got his butt kicked after 15 mins so we stopped. lol. oh well atleast i got a good workout yesterday w/ Zumba Toning and Yoga and again last night playing Just Dance 2 :)
He seems pretty determined to where i dont think hes going to quit just yet just taking it easy, which i remember when i first started the whole journey and yessss it was really hard at first.
