Yikes, Hashtag Predicatable

So whenever I get the balls to post a progress picture on Facebook I almost ALWAYS run to my blog and blog about it because I'm a huge chicken.  Well, obviously since I haven't blogged in a while...I just posted a progress picture on Facebook.

HAHAHA hashtag predictable.

It makes me so nervous but honestly...I really am trying to not care what people think.  I'm not embarrassed that I sit in my cube and take selfies when my hair looks amazing (today), and I'm not embarrassed to post pictures where I look my worst.  I'm just not. Hell yes I used to be, but not today.  And that is only one way how I have changed during this journey.

Just posted this on FB

To say that I have been slacking in the gym department lately would be an understatement.  I really have not been going as much as I should and I realize that. I could say that for about 3 weeks I lost all motivation to go to the gym, eat healthy and blog.  I wasn't instagraming and I wasn't writing posts.  I had no desire and I even wondered if I ever would again.  I have NO idea where this came from and it scared the crap out of me.  That can NEVER happen.  I can never give up is what saved my life and I will forever be grateful.

So with that being are a few updates.  And by few I mean few.

I went to zumba last night and it was AMAZING! It was so much fun and realllllly fast paced.  Usually my heart rate average is in the 140s (on a good night) and last night it was 153! Now...I am really hoping that last night was just more fast paced than usual and not that I was out of shape haha.  I was dying at some points. Yikes. It was a great burn and a lot of fun too! It felt amazing getting back into things.

YES I have a shirt that says Legendary Status.

I skipped a lot of workouts this week and last week.  I skipped Tuesday because I'm a nerd and the new Call of Duty came out and I haaaad to run home and play right away. HAHA! Anyone else get it?! I play on xbox so if anyone has an xbox live account, let me know!! I also skipped a lot last week because of Halloween and being busy on the weekend.

Halloween, my favorite!
A Bumble Bee
in a tutu
Last Weeks Zumba
See...148 average heart rate!
Last Tuesdays workout...
...I got my butt handed to me.
Those are the only updates I have...I know I know...I need to get back into my regular 4-5x a week routine!!! I miss that feeling I have when I do that! I need to try harder.

So what is on the horizon for me? Let's see. I have a 5k Turkey Trot Nov 23rd. I really need to start training for this ASAP. I want to at least improve on my last 5K time of 39:17.  I really want to get under 39, so that will be my goal.  Buttttt I really need to start tonight. Haha!! And should I wear my tutu? I think I might! :)

Other than that 5k I don't have anything too exciting to look forward to.  Maybe I should register for a few more races!!! :)


  1. Love your bumblebee costume. I used to be way more self-conscious than I am now. I think it comes with age and becoming more confident with yourself.

    Great selfies!

    Have a wonderful week :)!

  2. You look awesome, and you should feel amazing about posting those pictures on Facebook, because that is such an awesome accomplishment! :)

    1. Aww thank you! It took me a long time to get the courage to post! I'm glad that I am changing not just physically but mentally too! :) xoxo

  3. Your doing the Turkey-trot? So am I. I can't wait to do it and your event is before mine so you have to give an update on how that goes! I can't wait to hear about it.

    1. YAY Turkey Trot!! I really should start training a bit for is in 2 weeks!! HA! So my update may not be too awesome. Good luck with yours!

  4. Wow, your progress is amazing! I LOVE seeing the change in peoples faces. When I put my progress picture on Facebook I didn't realise that Facebook had changed the settings to "show only to ___" and I was gutted only a few people commented! But then I realised what happened and changed it and got the most likes for a picture...I'm sure you'll experience the same response! I love Zumba! Please visit my blog if you have time =)

    1. Thank you so much!!! You're blog is really awesome! You should add a follow button so I can follow it and it shows up into my reading pane!! :) xoxo

  5. You know how I feel about you! I adore you and I think you are such a gorgeous girl on the inside and out. I will never stop believing in you and checking in on you and pushing you! I won't let you give up on you. I won't. No one ever said this was easy and it takes a lot of time. That is one of the things that I have always admired the most about you.... you are doing it correctly, living and enjoying your life and finding balance all the time. This means it is forever. I don't worry that you will back pedal. You may stall and lose motivation from time to time but you aren't going backwards. You may stand still but never back wards.

    It's honestly harder to maintain this lifestyle when things are less than perfect than when you are fully invested in it. That is why you are such an inspiration. You make choices for your happiness and stay at it.

    I too am slowly but surely becoming more comfortable and confident with posting pictures, letting people into my lifestyle in this online world. It was always such a "secret" on facebook how I lived this whole other world. Not so much anymore. I have never been ashamed to post a bad before picture. I'd never post it if it was the current but so long as its in the past, its part of who I was. Can't hide that.

    Be proud of yourself and everything you've done and continue to do!

    1. You are just the best, you always say the most amazing things. THANK YOU!
