Last Week

Oh my goodness I am so glad that last week is over.
It was not a bad week but a very odd week.
I didn't feel like myself at all. Very off all week, not eating clean and not exercising like I know I should.
Feeling tired and just really off.
But it is a new week.

This is what I am telling myself today.
It is a new week and time to get to business.

Eating Garbage

Hi My name is Bobbi Jo and I am a emotional eater......
Hi Bobbi Jo..
Having a little meeting with myself right now.
I caved today.
I honestly know what it was that made me cave too. 
1. I didn't plan out my meals or even breakfast. 
2. I didn't eat breakfast
3. I let the pictures of myself + the lack of no weight loss or the no loss of inches get to me.
4. I didn't take time to step back and take all thoughts into action.
I caved.
Dallas brought me home garbage to eat. No not actually garbage but one of my biggest weaknesses 
The Carl's Jr. Guacamole Burger Meal. A whopping 1030 calories. 
So much for my clean eating. GRRRRRRR! 
No this didn't blow my calorie intake for the day but, keeping this real 
Don't eat while you read this part if you have a weak tummy! 
Fast food such as this gives me diarrhea with in 15 minutes of eating it. 
Sometimes I just really irritate myself.
Now my stomach hurts and I am pooping like a goose, along with a slight headache. 
Stupid stupid stupid (saying this as hit my head on the desk.) 
When will I learn. 
Maybe posting this will make it more prominent in my memory. I have never shared this with anyone! 
Now don't you feel special. he he 
Now I am going to plan out my food for tomorrow before it get's here.

Weigh In Wednesday & Progress Pictures

Well the progress doesn't look like much but I can feel it slowly happening. 
Honestly looking at these pictures just make me want to be ill. 
Honestly I swear the camera put on more than 10 pounds.
This was not what I saw when I looked in the mirror to take the pictures this morning.
Coco and I were talking a while back and we both think we Body Dysmorphic Disorder.
 I truly don't see myself the way I look in my pictures. Not that I see myself as smaller it is usually bigger but this was different. ARG!!! Stinking mind. 
The ones on the left are from Jan. 12 TH of this year & on the right Feb. 13TH.

Weigh in today was the same as last week. So I am not thrilled about no loss but thrilled there was no gain. 
The difference I am seeing is in my ankles that are no longer cankles 
and in my face I can see some thinning out. 
I am noticing that my underclothes especially the bottoms are fitting better. There isn't the tugging to pull things up over my thighs and hips. So even though I am not showing difference on the scale or the tape measure I am feeling it. Small little changes that keep me moving along.
I am also feeling better about ME!  
I defiantly need to up my weight workouts and get some tone going on.

Clearing Out

I have decided as I lose inches and take up less space I need to get rid of the things that would 
allow me to balloon up again. So I am getting rid of my first item of clothing.
This is it a blouse I have had for a while. It is still in good shape but just looks so droopy on me.  
Tomorrow I will be taking my progress pictures and it is Weigh in Wednesday.

Little Changes

 I was at church yesterday in the bathroom and looked in the full length mirror to make sure my dress wasn't tucked in my underwear and I noticed a little change and it made me think of this picture I saw and saved.
I noticed that my ankles didn't look like cankles!
I actually had some shape to my ankles again and I wasn't wearing high heals 
I was wearing about a 2 1/2 inch heal. 
I actually had to look 3 times to make sure what I saw was really. 
Did a little dance of delight then went to class. 
Slow and steady losses the inches. I am happy with the little changes in my body.

A Few Goals To Share

It has taken me a while to put together my goals.
I have had them in my mind, visions and such but I just needed to go over them again and again. 
I might be adding more on as I go throughout this journey 
I want and will run again 
I want to be able to practice yoga with out straining for breath and being able to reach poses 
without my belly being in the way and my thighs to huge to hit certain poses
Also strong enough to hold poses
What I will have 
A nice tight round butt 
Having this feeling
and these abs
Legs that are tone and strong 
Strong tone arms 
 Yet still feminine 
By June my goal is to have my arms tone to the point I am comfortable with wearing a short sleeve shirt 
and feel confident in it. 
To look healthy, fit, lean and strong 
These are just a few that I have come up with so far. 
I can do this
I will do this

Weigh In Wednesday

Hey I remembered to post on the right day! 
Happy to report that I have lost 1.6 lbs. yeah! 
Not disappointed at all to get rid of this.
 I saw on Dr. Oz last week this Dr. who was talking about being happy with even the ounces lost. 
To go to the store and buy items that are in the ounces. Have those on hand and when you only see a little loss you hold that item up that is in the ounces that you lost next to your body and realize that any loss no matter how small is a major loss. 
Now I think 1.6 is a great number and I am super duper happy with this. I will take it!
