The indecisive Virgo!

Have you ever encountered an indecisive Virgo?? No??? Well now you have! I'll fill you in on a critical part of my personality...it's often difficult for me to make up my mind!

So last week I said I'd like to take my body to the next level and work towards #140...I still would like to do that...just not right now!

Most Virgo's are known perfectionist...think Beyonce & Michael Jackson (smile)! I am no different! I will not commit to something major unless I know I can give it 100% of my focus and attention.

Major goals for me must be achieved in sections. My weight loss, my relocation, both major done in sections. I sat down and made a list of my goals and their order of priority.

I'm cool with my body right now, it's most definitely in my top five of constant attention. Right now my top priority is getting my jewelry business up and running. I've been working on pieces and have the momentum right now to run with it!

So for now I'm going to pour my attention into my jewelry. I can't wait to share it with y'all!

Blogging break

I've been taking a blogging pause, trying to focus on the things I've been neglecting. I do recognize that this IS my open journal and I need to spend time here as well.

What's going on with me??? Hmmm...I'm working hard to kick this sugar habit I've picked up over the last couple of months. Sugar is the DEVIL! Once I started eating sugar often, I started to crave it all of the time! My scale and abs are telling the story of my sugar binge, I'm trying to pull it all together for my July 1 weigh in and stats post.

Today, 6/24/11

This week I've completed all of my workouts, minus this morning but I'll get it in this evening. I'm proud of that because I'm being straight up when I tell you...my ass was slacking!

If I'm going to make it to #140, I have to pull it together no if ands or buts! Again I'm back to basics! All of my extra ish needs to take a sideline seat. I've worked too damn hard to let life throw me off my game!

Happy 26th birthday to my sister Marquita! My baby Mimi also celebrated her 6th birthday on the 21st!

*My grams birthday was the 16th, my niece Courtney the 14th AND my nephew Cam'Ron on the 20th!!! Whew June birthdays are out of control in my family but I love it!!

Road to #140..stacked, sexy, lean muscle!

I've been quiet this week, reading blog posts with limited comments. I'm still getting my *e-hugs* and love from y'all which is helping me tremendously!

Have you ever wanted something SO bad but just didn't know how to get it? That's where I'm at with my relationship. This question can also directly relate to weight loss. Truth be told the frustration of my relationship is fucking me up right now.

I'm all thrown off. Eating like crap, skipping workouts, drinking...you name it...I've been doing it! This is hard, emotionally I am drained. I'm not a quitter, I can't let what's going on keep me from moving forward towards my goals.

I need to focus on something I have complete control over, which brings me to the topic of this post. I've decided to set a brand new goal for myself that I intend to take seriously.

The NEW goal is to shape a figure competitor's body..minus the competing (for now). For this to become a reality many things I am doing as of now must change.

I've written a detailed list of goals and rewards which I will share a little later. For now I'm mentally preparing myself for this next phase of my lifestyle transformation. I've gotten comfy, change cannot happen unless I push myself to my limit and beyond!

I want a body of envy, I don't give a shit about anyone else's opinion! Follow me on my road to #140..stacked, sexy, lean muscle!

Friday's motivation!

My good friend Kenya posted this on my Facebook wall last night. As you could imagine it brought me to tears!

Kenya Gordon posted on your Wall:

"Just wanted to drop you a line and tell you how truly beautiful you are. Yeah, you have lost some pounds, yeah you have made a physical transformation. But from the inside out, you are absolutely fabulous. The confidence you exude now, the leap of faith you took to relocate with your girls to a new chapter, is something to be applauded and I am truly proud of you. When I met you, you always had the confidence and outspokenness, that I saw in myself and that is why we hit it off instantly and have remained friends. Keep growing, keep sharing your light and more than else, keep being you. I love you and love who you are and who you continue to grow to be....AMAZING..."

This has to be one of THE nicest things anyone has ever said to me...

This is EXACTLY the fuel needed to motivate my passions! I have so many reasons to smile! Although this has been an off week for me so to speak, I cannot deny my blessings! Therefore I keep pushing!

Going through some ish and I'm just not in the mood!

I'm in a funky ass funk! My mood isn't the greatest and I haven't worked out since Saturday. I wish I could blame this ish on something or someone but I can't.

Maybe once my day gets going I'll pep up a bit? I'll get a workout in once I make it home today, that always makes me feel better.

Y'all have a great day for me!

The frustration of my LDR...long distance relationship

The majority of my posts are typically about my weight loss journey, occasionally I'll post something about my life outside of weight loss. Today this is on my heart so I'm going to share it.

I haven't really gone into great detail about my relationship because it's a very sensitive subject for me. I have said on many occasions that I feel like he is IT for me, that has not changed. I love this man like I've never loved another.

He came to see me this past weekend (arrived at 3 am Sunday morning, left 8 pm Sunday evening) made the long drive from NO to Houston because I was agitated about not seeing him since February.

Was I happy that he came, yes of course! Was I happy that he was only here less than 24 hours, hell no! I understand he has very limited time due to his job and obligations to his child. One of the many things I admire about him is the fact that he's a great father.

I try not to throw too many fits about him not being here in the way I'd like him to. This is proving to be difficult. The LDR is not for the emotionally unstable. Sometimes I feel like I'm fighting an uphill battle.

I don't know when the gap will come to an end and that's the most difficult part. I deal with so much and most times I just need him to hug me through it but he's not here.

I don't want to give up on my love. It hurt like hell when he left, physically I felt sick. I have this empty ass feeling that doesn't go away until he returns.

I never expected that first conversation to turn into what we are living now. Every single day I miss him more and more. I really just want the nagging ache of missing him to go away. My heart is so heavy right now.

Weigh day! Stats! Mommy's birthday!

I have to start this post by first giving my mom a happy birthday shout out! Without her, there is no me. She is a huge part of why I am the woman that I am today! Love and miss you mom!

My mom :-)

Okay back to my weigh day and stats! I had to bury my old scale (may she RIP) a few days ago *sigh*...we had a good run together! So on Monday the girl's and I made a run to Target to pick up a new scale! I must admit I am smitten with her lol!!

Weight 6/1/11, 162.2

Stats look like this...

Bust: 33.5
Waist: 28.5
Hips: 39.5
Thighs: (R) 22.75, (L) 23

Total weight lost in May: 0.8 lbs

Total inches lost: 1.25 in

June body shot

I am finally starting to notice the progress in my abs!! Finally!!! I believe having two c-sections is playing a role in the slow journey back to flat abs...smdh!

I set a goal last month to complete four weeks of Jillian Michaels' Ripped in 30, this did not happen! I have yet to even complete weeks 3 & 4 workouts! Throughout my journey I've learned a few things about my body.

My body responds well to constant confusion. Meaning, the intensity and style of my workouts have to vary from week to week for me to see and feel a difference.

I've already noticed change with my current schedule 3 days on, 1 day rest cardio/strength split. Basically I'm doing three days of cardio, and three days of strength training on alternate days. I'm not planning my workouts more than one week out at a time.

Goals for this month:

* Continue my split routine with various workouts
* Start lifting heavier weights
* Bid farewell to the 160's
* Menu planning 1 week out...seriously I've been sloughing on this and I have NO excuses

Thank you all for continuing to follow and support my journey!
