Spring Break

I am definitely not ready for summer because my eating over this short week home has been horrendous.  I can only imagine how bad it will be over the summer.  There were sweets in the house due to my hubby and damn I have no willpower.  Now, for the past 2 days we have had company and you know what that entails...eating out for lunch and dinner on some days.  I am not ready to go back to work, but I need to get my eating under control.

Speaking of summer, I was feeling good about myself a few days ago and decided to try on the dreaded bathing suits.  WOW...not what I had envisioned in my head.  I bought 2 bikinis with good intentions at the end of last summer because they were on sale for cheap and they were cute.  I am not sure if I am going to be able to pull off the old 2 piece ever again.  We will see...I need to get rid of the pasty-white skin first and maybe that will do the trick.  The weather has been great and it has made me contemplate laying out and soaking in some rays, but then the wind blows a little and it is too cold for me.  I like really hot temps when I am laying out.  

Alright, enough rambling.  I need to go and work on K's room.  I hope it turns out good because turning it into a big girl room has taken up all of my spring break!

Day 5

Today is day 5 of my advocare cleanse and dang I am ready for it to be over.  The actual cleanse really has not been too bad and I am getting some results so it keeps me going for another 5 days, but it is tough to think about every little thing you eat and if it fits the guidelines.  It has curved my sweet tooth, which was taking over my entire body and the main reason I decided to start the cleanse.  So, overall I would say it has been a success with minor negatives.

I have worked out 3 times this week and wow it is completely different on a cleanse.  I have done the same workouts, but I have gotten really dizzy afterwards.  It has been to the point that I have had to sit down which is so not normal for me, ever.  I have never passed out, but the other day I thought I was going to.  Yesterday's workout was much better and I wasn't seeing birdies afterwards.

On a very positive note, Spring Break is next week.  Hallelujah!!!  Then only 11 more weeks until summer! That is not very long before I will be in a bathing suit almost every day.

March 2012

Well, it is a new month, new blog background, and new weather.  I have taken the kids outside to play each night because it has been so pretty, but I know that sooner rather than later it is going to be too damn hot to do anything outside.  I have to enjoy it now!  The problem with it being so pretty outside is that my plans of working out in the evening get crushed and set aside because I would rather sip some wine and play with the kiddos than hit the gym.  I have to stay I took some march pics and did some measurements.  I thought I threw away my measurements from the beginning of December, but I was surprised to find them.  So here are my comparisons.  

December    March

Arms:  10 5/8 in.   10 1/2 in.
Chest:  37 in.  35 in.
Waist:  30 1/4 in.  29 in.
Hips:  37 1/4 in.  36 in.
Thighs:  22 in.  21 1/4 in. 

Some are very slight changes, but hey a change is a change and none of them went up.   I feel the exact same, my weight is the exact same, and my clothes fit the exact same so I really wasn't expecting anything.  Definitely still have lots of work to do and I need to get my butt back in gear.
