Perfect 10 update...week 5...and a picture of my shirt...lol.

Hey all.
Well, Today was my high calorie day...it's a lone ranger this month.
I am only having one...
I did my workout. A 3.8 mile walk and an upper body workout.
Tomorrow it's back to the gym and one hour on Christian and situps.
My week went really really well for perfect 10/
I was in bed on time.
I ate my correct number of calories.
Since I started at 188...and am now 178, I already hit my 8 lb goal for the perfect 10.
Been drinking more than 8 cups every day this week.
Been getting at least one hour of cardio..and since I am doing every day in February, I got all my days in.
January was a really hard month for me. I was constantly hungry.
Glad it's over....
I tell you though.
Committing the first four days to really low calorie counts and strict exercising...
It has gotten me back on track. I feel capable of continuuing even though it is going to be harder to drop that final forty or so pounds.
I think mentally I checked out of the fight a bit.
Got a little happy with myself..
Clothes shopping and makeup wearing and the whole nine.
I had to really step back and take a good look at where I am and where I want to be...
I realized I simply wasn't there yet...so my little party had to go on hiatus.
That being said...
I have a couple of really cute outfits..

I had a nice date tonight with my husband.

It feels nice to look nice again.

It will feel even better to be where I want to be.

Now for the one thing about me ya'll don't know...
I was a sucky shot with the rifle in basic..
But when  it came to fire and maneuver I was crack.
I killed the enemy and we obtained our objective.
It was the most fun...(besides the bayonet course and the grenade portion)
that I had....
So, this blogger loves fire and maneuver...
I should've been a ranger.
Hugs and bullet casings,
Chris

You look gorgeous, Chris. Love the shirt! Was your husband slobbering? Geez, I used to hate when my husband acted differently when I lost weight, although, now that I think of it, I think he's been chasing me around the house for the 10 years since I lost mine...

Great job on your goals!

Helen said...

The woman in that photo surely does looke like she'd need to do some maneuvers but not for basic! I'd venture to say your hubby was the one chasing you around. I guess you don't need me to tell you that you're doing great - you already know, don't you?

Look at you! Woot! :-)

Grats on a great January, but now it is on to a fantastic February!

Oh grrrrrl.... you TOTALLY are rocking that sex kitten blouse like the vixen you are. Sex appeal out the yin yang ~ and you know you look awesome because it shows in your confident smile.

I ADORE YOU.

Good for getting back on the horse. It's good practice because I'm here to tell you it's all about staying on the horse. And not just to goal, as I've mentioned many times. It's about staying on the "this is the new me where I live and where I shall stay" horse. It's never-ending. That's not to scare you... it's to let you know that when you make the effort to get lean and healthy, the effort becomes part of you. The new you will always require attention and effort - but it feels GOOD to take care of ourselves. We all have our off days, but to take those reins and steer that horse, well - that is the most empowering feat of all. To keep on riding happily and healthily into the sunset.

You get it.

You know, the shirt is pretty, the hairdo is nice, your makeup looks great, but what gets me about the photo? The smile. Amazing.

TJ said...

nice pic! I like that color top on you! One thing that I want to be able to do is wear sleeveless tops- Ive never worn a tank top or anything like that because I was always self conscious about my arms. I still am even though they are smaller- they still jiggle lol Some day... along with a cute little sun dress. :)

I agree that January was hard; we are both back at it now though! "Miles to go before I sleep..."

Paula Rodriguez said...

I'm speechless. You look great. Love the hair and that color is really nice on you. Man, you look great.

There's no resting on your laurels for you. Again, it's like you know where you want to go and you know how to get there. That's just awesome Chris.

You've worked hard and it shows.
