D41 Checking In On October Goals

I can't believe October is almost over! I just realized that today and I realized I have NO idea where I stand right now with accomplishing the goals I set for myself and I should probably check in because it's crunch time and I need to put in some serious work if I want to meet all those goals!

-Earn 65 AP's for the month (I know some people who do this in a week...)
Woohoo! Check that one off the list! As of right now (and the month isn't over yet!) I'm at 70!! YAY!! 


-Increase my weights at the gym
Check! Every time I go I work a little harder and I've increased my weights pretty significantly since the beginning of the month :)


-No more than 2 rest days a week
*sigh* Didn't get this one. There was one week that I had 3 rest days but I can't be perfect! I'll try this one again in November :) And hey, if it counts I only took 1 rest day this week!


-Get a pedicure (me-time is important!!!)

I didn't do this yet but there are still a few days left in the month!! Maybe I'll go tomorrow...I got a coupon in the mail, LOL!!!
I am working hard and I've really tried to make October a fabulous month. I feel good about all the positive changes I've made and I will continue to set small but attainable goals every month! I like them because they're short enough to reach but long enough to keep me consistent. Tomorrow is Weigh In Wednesday so I've got my typical Tuesday night anxiety but I'm proud of the week I had. I've earned 32 AP's (so far!), worked out 5 out of 6 (tomorrow will be 6 out of 7) days, survived a party (even if I'm not THRILLED with my method) and today I bought a new pair of SIZE 5 JEANS!!! :-D My body is changing and it feels better than ever and my mind it seems is finally catching up. Kind of. Hopefully I won't always struggle with Tuesday night anxiety but for now I'm going to go to bed and NOT binge. I've worked too damn hard this month to throw it all out the window in one night!

I Fell In Love Today

I fell in love today. It was the craziest feeling and one of the most amazing moments in my 29 years of life. I will never forget the day I stood in the Target dressing room looking at her. Admiring her. Seeing her strength and beauty despite her flaws...maybe even because of them. She was stunning. Absolutely radiant and proud. She was beautiful outside but not because she had a toned stomach, tanned flawless skin and a thigh gap; she was a different kind of beautiful. She was genuinely beautiful. I stood there staring at her and admiring her and I felt myself smiling; caught off guard by how I was feeling! Almost a little ashamed that she caught my admiring eye. But she didn't reject my admiration; instead she smiled back at me and before I knew it I was crying.

Time was suspended as I stood there weeping softly, hot tears rolling down my cheeks but I didn't feel embarrassed in her presence. I was overcome with emotion but shame was not one. With her standing there I I felt s…

Falling In Love Again

At Weight Watchers this week we were talking about being kind to yourself. I was asked when it was I decided to stop beating beating myself up and I started to cry the moment I said “it all started with a bikini”.
You can read that story here if you want to be caught up. 
I instantly felt my face flush as I realized I wasn’t going to be able to keep talking without tears rolling down my cheeks and I paused for a moment to look around the room. Was what I was about to do career suicide? What would my boss think if she walked into the meeting room and witnessed the leader having an emotional breakdown? 
My job as a leader is to facilitate a conversation among members, to create an environment where each and every person who walks through the door feels safe and supported and to ensure that each week members leave feeling like they got a figurative hug with a side of science.
It’s great to be warm and fuzzy and I love that Weight Watchers has moved past the days of a leader lecturing for 45 …

D10 5 Ways to Make Running Suck Less & How You Can Apply These Tips To Your WLJ Even If You Don't Run!

I was scrolling through Facebook yesterday and this article popped up on my news feed. I've been running for a while now and I figured it would probably have information I already knew because I know it all...obviously! But I clicked on it anyways, why not!?

And I'm so happy I did! I actually found it funny and I appreciated the reminders because even though I knew things before I read it I wasn't applying them to my runs...but as I read I realized how much this article was a metaphor for other aspects of my weight loss journey! I can apply these tips to more than running, and heres how:

1. Get your chin down! Keep your jaw relaxed. Being aware of tension in my body is super important for me and it's especially important I'm aware of tension in my jaw. I get stressed, I clench my teeth and what happens next? I'm STARVING. Why? Because I'm tense and anxious, I'm not actually in need of food! If I can catch the clench and get to the bottom of what's cau…
