Happy Monday

Hey y'all!
     I hope it was a good weekend for you guys! I had a TERRIBLE day yesterday but I am hoping that today will be much better. :)

     Last Friday I weighed in and in fact had lost alittle over a pound. I was so proud because I had had no loss or gain the week prior. I was not such a good girl with my eating this weekend but I stepped on the scale this morning and I did stay the same as I was Friday. Its all about moderation people, I ate what I wanted, but I didnt eat until I was going to explode. I ate until I was content. I did start out the morning on a healthy note today so that is good, I had an egg white on a bagel thin and some raspberries and blueberries.

     On Wednesday I am starting crossfit. I expect fully to have my booty handed to me but Im ready to give it a try. I think its a change in exercise that my body needs. Its super important to switch it up after several weeks of the same exercise. I am headed into week 11 and I have been pretty much been doing the same routine the entire time. So its time to switch it up. Im expecting a loss this week beause of that. Crossfit is an absolutely a-freakin-mazing exercise program and I personally know a couple ladies that do it at our previous duty station. They have been taking pictures throughout and I am just so amazed by results. They say that Crossfit will change your life. So I am SO excited. They actually just had the Crossfit games on espn3 this weekend but I didnt get the channel. :(

     Anyways I have said this before but I have had some people come to me telling me that I have been inspiring to them..I just want to say y'all rock my socks off and Im so glad that Im able to help you and inspire you. I will say it over and over, feeling and being healthy is the most rewarding, amazing, feeling in the world. I have never in my life finished a workout and said, well that was terrible Im so mad that I just did that. Go out and walk, run, jog, whatever you can do. Get a mile in..a mile is a mile whether its an 8 minute mile or an 18 minute mile. :)

Dear 15 year-old self

So I saw this post on a couple other peoples blogs and I thought it'd be a really fun idea. I encourage you all to do one as well.

Dear 15 year old self,
        Alot is going to happen in the next 8 years. But you will never regret any of it. Your going to learn from your experiences, and allow them to help you grow. Life is so unexpected and you can never be ready for what is thrown at you.
        Go to college right after high school. It sounds like a terrible idea right now but its even harder when your 23, married and trying to support yourself. Chase your passion of nursing.

        When mom says its important to save money. DO IT.

        Your going to graduate high school and barely ever speak to people you grew up with. It happens, its life. The important ones are going to be the ones who stay in your life no matter where you are. Even after high school, friends are going to come and go. Again, its the ones who stay that matter most. Dont take this personally.

        In a few years your going to meet someone who is going to change your life forever. When you meet him, you wont know this is the person your going to spend your life with until about a year and a half later.

        You will become an Army wife. Hold on tight. This will become one of the biggest challenges of your life. Yet it will also be very rewarding. You will be blessed with a strong relationship between yourself and your husband. He will deploy, more than once. But you'll be okay. It may not feel like it at the time but you will. God picked you to be a military spouse for a reason. Honor that.

        You will also become a step mother once you marry your husband. This will take awhile to adjust to, but you'll come to terms and love her like your own. You'll have your time to have babies with your man. Just be patient.

        After your first deployment you'll find yourself very unhealthy. You will realize this after a bit of time and you'll change yourself. This part of your life is important because you realize you want to help others get healthy and live healthy. And you'll be very proud.

        Most of all, just love yourself. Your going to have many times where you dont love yourself. But save yourself the time and just love yourself unconditionally. You were given this life, feel blessed and own it. :)

        Oh--and that gigantic tattoo on your side that your going to get in about 3 could do without it.

Your 23 year old self.

My love hate relationship with this blog.

So, its back. I dont know how long..I delete it then I want it back. Sooo, lets try this again.

I guess I'll just shoot to write like 2 times a week, if more awesome. I'll post on my page when there is a new entry.

Hope yall have been well since my last post! I'll back up to last week, I had some not so great workouts last week but I kept on going, and didnt have a loss at all last friday. I did stay the same, which is good. But I know that I didnt give it my all. So I came into this week ready to kick some butt and get stuff done. I decided that maybe because I was about 8 weeks into this I should try to switch up my workout. So my workouts will look like this--

Sunday- 1 hour cardio
Monday- Bi's/Tri's
Tuesday- 1 hour cardio
Thursday- 1 hour cardio
Friday- Off day
Saturday-Chest/back & 30 min cardio

So we will see how it goes. Cardio was a-friggin-mazing yesterday. Did some straight running and then switched it up to sprints on an incline for the rest of the time. I was a sweaty sweaty girl. Looking forward to Bi's and Tri's today.
I also will be working on my clean eating this week. I am not going to lie to anyone I didnt eat so clean last week which could also be why I had no loss. So, its back to eating clean.

I have had a couple people come to me and tell me Im really inspiring them, and I cant tell you how much that humbles me. I know I still have a ways to go, but I have learned so much about myself in the last 2 months and my body has done things I never thought were possible. I wrote briefly on my fb page yesterday that I havent gotten emotional this far, but I did get a little teary yesterday when I was running my sprints on an incline. I never thought in my entire life that I'd enjoy running, let alone call myself a runner. Ive told you guys this before, its not about you being a size 2 or a size 20..when your FIT its a big difference. I have never worked out and afterwards said, well that was the worst decision I ever made.
Working out & eating healthy makes your body so different. I had stress headaches ALL the time before I started to make working out and eating clean a priority. Now, I rarely get them. I do still get migraines every once and awhile, I'll never grow out of them, but I can tell you I feel SO much better.

Do something healthy today, you have no excuse. <3
