Sorry for not posting for a while. I have been busy with work and working out and just plain tired. I have been good about bringing a lunch to work and it is no problem for me. I need to cut down on the refills of diet soda though.

Exercise has been going pretty good. I am starting to bike more and take it easy on running to give my knees a break. I have lifting 2-3 times a week. I can definitively see definition in my arms. 22's son!!

Anyway, I weighed in this morning and to be honest I thought I was going to gain. I went to a surprise party last night for one of my co-workers in downtown Waukesha. There was a lot of Spotted Cow to drink, so I drank. I also had a piece of red velvet cake. I do not regret eating that, it was ahhhmazing. Anyways, I lost .7 pounds. I'll take it. But I know I can do better. I know this is a short post, but I just wanted to keep in touch with my viewers. Have a great day! Enjoy the pics :)

bon fire weather <3

New Job. New Struggles.

So I have been at my new job for 3 days now. If you didn't read my last post, I got a job working at a movie theater as a busser. Its awesome because I am around my best friend sometimes and other people that are pretty cool too. Plus, I am moving a lot by taking drinks and food out to the customers and climbing stairs. I am for sure getting my 10,000 steps in.

I have also started to get up at 7 am and go workout in the mornings. I used to never be able to work out in the mornings. I was crabby and the thought of my body functioning at that level, that early never clicked in my head. But the past couple of days, I have been wide-eyed and kicking ass in the gym. I even got in a late night work out and it was awesome because hardly anyone was at the gym. I love that. Plus, my sleeping has been ahhhmazing!

Right now, the challenge for me is the food that we serve. Pretty much everyone who works there eats the food we make and they get 50% off too. So as of right now, I am the only one who brings a lunch to work. I honestly feel like the odd man out. I've heard comments though like, "Wow, that's probably healthier to bring a lunch." Yeah, I guarantee it is. The food smells and looks amazing. Plus anytime you want something to drink there is a bunch of soda just right there to fill a cup up with. They do also have water, which is great because I can't just walk around with a bottle of water and sip out of it, so I fill up a cup and drink water like that. So, that's basically my thoughts as of right now. I just wanted to let my blogging friends in on what is going on.

Do you bring a bag lunch to work?

Wednesday Was a Win.

Yesterday I weighed-in and lost 3.2 pounds. I currently weight 182.8 pounds. I also am 1 freaking pound away from the 50 pounds loss mark! Hollllllllaaaaaaaaaaaa! I definitively needed that loss because the prior weeks I gained weight. It was not good. I was trying to figure out if it was water weigh or possibly muscle. I think I just have been eating more than I need and not realizing it. So during this past week I really took into account of what and how much I was eating.

In other news I got a job at the local movie theater! Bye bye unemployment, it was nice knowing you. My best friend works there and pretty much I got the hook up because the managers love her. I am ready to make some money again. Plus free movies!

So basically my Wednesday is my off day from the gym. I weighed-in. Did a happy dance that I lost 3 pounds and then went a long with my day. I didn't want to sit inside my house all day and it was sunny outside and in the 70s so I went onto my pool deck and laid out until about 3 pm. I did a mixture of just laying out and listening to music and also read a couple chapters of "Working Out Sucks". I got a great tan too, as always.

After, I started getting ready for my meeting with the manager at the movie theater. I met with him and we basically talked about things other than the movie theater. He actually goes to the same tech college as I do. So that was a plus!

When I was done meeting with him and getting hired ( W00T!!!!) I met up with my two best friends, Heebs and Andi (She got me the hook up with the movie theater) to get our fro-yo on. Wisconsin is new to the whole fro-yo concept because we have custard here and I believe people that never have it before think its the best thing ever. The place we get the Fro-yo from is called Orange Leaf. Its definitely the cool place to hang out if you're in high school.. But it is always packed with business, which is a good thing.

Here is the masterpiece I made. It is peanut butter and chocolate fro-yo with gummie bears and half of a cosmic brownie. It was divine. The peanut butter fro-yo is my favorite so far. I would totally suggest that you try it if you haven't. All in all Wednesday was a win for Fluffy Girl.

I Love Hearing This.

So today in Wisconsin, it is crazy because of the recall against Scott Walker. I went with my mom to go do my civic duty and vote. When we got to the polling place, we ran into one of my friends moms who I haven't seen in a couple years, possible since graduating high school. (Wow, that makes me feel old.) Anyways, my mom and I stopped to chat for about 10 minutes and during that time I got one of the best responses anyone losing weight wants to hear.

"Wow, you look great! How much weight have you lost?" - Friends mom.

I can't tell you how much that lifts my morale and makes me want to keep at this journey. Sure there are plenty of ups and downs along the way, but it is one of the best feelings you can get when someone compliments you on your hard work and progress.

I'll see you tomorrow for weight-in day.

Don Draper in a Weight Loss Blog?

So I know I haven't posted in awhile. I'm sorry.

I wish I had a legit reason to tell you why, but I am becoming a bum. I have gotten into Mad Men and Netflix has been like crack to me for the past week watching the first 2 seasons. I am on season 3 now and I heard that is the best one yet. Plus, you should all be thankful I have not picked up smoking and day drinking Jack Daniels. (You'll get that if you watch the show, if you don't I am sorry) Btw, I love Don Draper and men in suits and skinny ties. And especially when he told Kim Kardashian that she was a "f*cking idiot". Thank you sir, for saying what everyone else is thinking.

I'd be his secretary  ; )

Ok, ok lets get back on track. I have been on the job hunt for awhile and hopefully my unemployed ass gets a call back from this place I applied to soon. I got bills to pay and shoes to buy. I would like to say though, that I ended my semester with a 3.86 GPA. I am pretty proud of myself for that accomplishment. Yes i iz smrt.

So I have gained weight the past two weeks. Don't know why. I feel as though my workouts are really good and my eating is decent. I don't calorie count anymore because I literally went crazy doing that. I'm trying to drink water a lot more. I think my portion sizes are a little out of whack. Plus I am trying not to eat out a lot since it is now summer. I am working at all of those continuously.

The funny thing about this, is yes I am pissed I have gained weight but over Memorial Day weekend I put on my swimsuit for the first time since I went to Australia last November. The results: The top and bottoms of my swim suit were big on me AND I looked damn good in a 2 piece. I know I don't have a picture for you. But one will come soon.

Also, I have noticed that my arms are getting more defined from lifting. I can see biceps and triceps!

I don't want to become too comfortable where I am though, weight wise. Because I am not. I want more. I want to hit my goal weight by the end of summer. I want to see more muscle definition.

The journey has been hard for me. I could have given up a long time ago but I didn't. I refuse to quit. I refuse to  be defined by a number on a scale. I refuse to be 231 pounds ever again.
