Meaning of derailment noun 1. the act or process of derailing . Your probably like why is she talking about derailment. Well I its because I allow things that are thrown onto or that blow on my tracks to derail my journey of becoming healthier and finding me while being sandwiched between taking care of my dad, caring for my young family and being a wife to my husband. I need to break the habit of allowing these events in my life to derail my progress of getting healthy and finding me. I need to move me up to a higher position on my to do/ to take care of list. The ER doctor said it best the other night to me when I sitting in the ER with my dad waiting to hear what was going with him. I was over tired and hacking from my allergies. He told me I have to remember to take of me because I have a lot to take care of myself too. It hit me that maybe I can't wait all night on test results and then go home and function enough to take care of 17 month old while my husband goes to work. So at 3am I was like ok I need to go and he is good hands with the doc and nurse that were part of the team taking care of him. They had his history and what brought us and if they needed anything else they could call. Walking way a huge step for me. It was hard because I wouldn't have the control of knowing what's going on at the moment it happens. It was freeing to do it because I learned to let go some of the structure and control I feel I have to have in taking care of all the people that depend on me in my life. I can't split myself in 2 and being in both places where I was needed be. While walking away was a big step forward I took a few tiny steps backwards. I let the madness and craziness of what was going on derail my good clean eating habits and my exercise program. So I promised myself today that I will not let that happen again! Today is a new day and forward is the only way to go! Positive is the way I have to be so I can keep moving forward! Thanks for reading my rambling and I am off to sweat my tail off with my T25 work out and plank challenge today!

Post 21 day fix

I finished up the 21 Day Fix 6 pounds down! Which is huge for me I lose weight slowly and to lose 6 pounds in 21 days has me very happy! I really liked the program and I look forward to doing it again soon. I even think my husband will like the work outs. I know he enjoyed the food I prepared during the program. I did not get a picture when I finished. I do have some pictures to post for my before pictures for the next challenge I started yesterday. I really don't see a difference in the pictures from the pictures I took for the 21 Day Fix but I see a big difference in the pictures I posted from December. I am going to work on putting together a collage later of those pictures. I will post that as soon as I get them and a post together. As for the challenge that started yesterday it is T25. This will be round 2 for me and so far I am nailing the work outs because I am must stronger and faster! YAY! Thanks for stopping by for my quick update!

Time for a pep talk

Ok so I was getting down on myself because I feel like it is taking me forever to get results for all the work I have been putting into getting healthier since the beginning of January. So time for a pep talk. Since January 6th: I have lost 7 pounds and over 10 inches all around. I have consistently worked out 5-6 days a week. We are eating out way less and mostly clean. I know I am not going to lose all I need to lose in the matter of days or weeks. It is going to take months maybe a year or more to get down where I want to be.....where I have to be so I can be healthy and around for my family. So here is to finish this week strong with the 21 Day Fix and getting ready for Focus T25 Challenge group starting on April 21st! I know I can reach my goals! Slow and steady wins the race! Thanks for stopping by for my little pep talk to myself!

21 Day Fix

After I finishedFocus T25 I was like what am I going to do next?!?!? I am totally addicted to working out each day and keeping our eating cleaning. My answer come to me in the form of the new Beachbody program the 21 Day Fix. This program peaked my interest a food plan that is measured out in containers that are provided and 7 day work out plan. Sounds good to me. I was like I am in! I had to wait to get my order which was fine because a challenge group was forming with some of the ladies I meet since starting this weight loss journey and joined Beachbody. I started Monday and it has been awesome! I had not weighted myself in almost 6 weeks because I gave up on the scale but I got one to see where I was at and what my starting weight was so I would have it to compare to my day 21 weight. I got on the today for the first time since Monday and I am down 3 pounds and about 2 inches already! Hoping I keep close to this pace for the next 17 days! Here are my before pictures!
Check back in 3 weeks to see the results! Thanks for reading!
