Exciting new week ahead!

I am so excited about this week.  I am finally finding my stride with working out, which was the missing puzzle piece for me.  Thank you ladies for following my blog back.  I actually never really expected to gain any followers.  A friend of mine who has a successful hip-hop music blog said he was going to start one about his weight loss journey and I thought OMG that is a great idea.  And I really do enjoy it.  I have never been one to write in a journal but I really enjoy documenting my feelings about this weight loss thing.  It is therapeutic and reading the chronicles of other ladies who are on the same journey is really supportive, inspiring, and motivational.

Over the weekend, I decided to make myself a special breakfast.  Normally I have oatmeal.  Which I am not even tired of yet, but just because I had the extra time, I decided to which it up and fix myself something "special."  I used 1/4 cup of egg substitute, Low-fat Mexican cheese and some left over Pico de Gallo.  I have never before made an omelette without meat, but I thoroughly enjoyed it!  The tomatoes really set it off and I had a cup of grapes with it.  I also cooked for the first couple of days for the week, both lunch and dinner.  Black bean soup for lunch and Mesquite turkey meatballs with fiesta corn for dinner!  YUMMY!

I am getting impatient because I want to see results NOW!  My short term goal is to make it into the 150's and I really want that to happen sometime in March.  But I am trying to tell myself the results will come, I just have to stay consistent and stick to my plan.


  1. Exactly - persistence and patience will get you to your goal! Great job on preparing your food in advance - that makes a big difference when it comes time to decide on what to eat. If you have all that good food in your fridge, you'll be less likely to eat something you'll regret!

  2. @Jenn, thank u girl for the encouragement. And you are so right about being prepared, not to mention my mornings are much less stressful!
