Has not been a very good day for a weight loss blog post. I have not been able to shove enough stuff in my pie hole today! The clothes I am wearing are not comfortable, in fact I haven't been comfortable in my work clothes in sometime now... this is a sign.
Here is a pic of what I chose to wear today
I was going for the classy busy working mom look, did I pull it off?
In the bathroom at work with the dirty mirror! LOL
I have to go make an appearance at the kids school after WORKING all day and after my CLASS that I have to leave early to hopefully catch my kids perform in the school talent show. I need to keep up with those moms who don't work full time jobs and spend their days at the gym and looking at pinterest for new ways to do their hair and fashion/makeup tips. SIKE! J/k I don't try to keep up with them, there's no use. I smile politely at them, like a good role model.

Anyway I was going to blog about how awesome I did today, I even took a picture of my healthy snacks I prepared for today...
This is my healthy shakes and snacks for the day, an orange julius shake for breakfast,  a banana, fresh veggies and some dip, babybel light cheese, 100 calorie pack almonds and a butterfinger shake for lunch.

Well I went through just about all of that by lunchtime, I had the cheese and veggies after lunch and I am still hungry!! Like HONGRY, border line HANGRY! Wth is wrong? I am thinking I am getting close to that time of the month and sometimes that comes with me eating anything in a mile radius. This must be one of those times. I am not sure how I am going to make it through class without eating my arm, maybe I should eat my partners arm, she is much skinnier so I am sure her's has less calories than mine. 
Getting ready to chug some water and take a walk away from my desk to get a coffee... maybe that will help if not at least I will have to be in the bathroom a lot.

Day 3

So today is the third day I have been trying something new. And this trying something new is really just a different approach all together about food and dieting. I am still trying to lose weight but I am trying to make it so that it is not the only thing on my mind 24 hours a day 7 days a week. Its getting old and quite frankly, I am over it controlling my life. I have so much more important things to focus on that need my attention and I can help in a positive way if I am not constantly obsessing about my weight and trying to lose it, or unhappy I am that yet again I have gained back what I lost. So here is how its going to go. I am working on my mind first and foremost.

We all know this is true.
Number two is focusing on exercising more. The stride across America challenge with Team Haka will help this, and help me refocus the objective.
Next, I am doing the Body by Vi challenge. Today was day number 3. I have only done one shake for breakfast thus far. So far so good. I think it is helping, but it's still early.

What have I gotten myself into?!

Team Haka...

Don't know what that is?
 I do, its a team of runner and bikers, one of them is a REAL iron woman! And  another one has way too much energy to know what to do with all of it and the other is an extremely driven woman who will do anything she sets her mind to, like run a marathon that includes tons of training and I keep hearing her say things like "I am really enjoying it".
And they asked me to be a part of their team????? Here's the kicker, I said YES! WTF was I thinking?? Well I will tell you, I am thinking that these people are AWESOME, yes that is right awesome and so am I. And these awesome people might just give me the kick in the ass to bring out my awesomeness on the fitness level. I know I have it in me, but for some reason it is just not wanting to come out lately. And they must know I have it too if they are willing to ask me to participate. I was warned however that I needed to bring my "A game".
So "A game" it is! A kick in the ass is what I need and that is what I have signed up for today, I know it!
Will keep you posted... and hope I survive!
Here is my plan:

step 1: go get my treadmill from my friend's house, I am such an indian giver, but hey, gotta look out for number one right?

step 2: get on it! Oh did I mention the challenge doesn't start until March 4th - so I have a few days to prepare my will for it.

step 3: give it all I've got! I think I am going to make this my main focus for now, hopefully this will help me stop obsessing about my weight, hell maybe this will even help me lose some, oh weight, I mean shit wait, I am supposed to stop obsessing about that. Oh well, hopefully that will come with the "runner's high" I hope to experience.

Enough for now, I've got work to do....
