I won!!

So I haven't updated in maybe forever. But that is not the point of this post... the point my dear friends is that I won!! Crazy cubicle dance party to commence shortly...

What did I win, why only a Bodymedia Fit Armband  from the lovely cantankerous Cranky fitness. I am so excited. In the past twoish months I have been up and down on the whole weight loss journey... more on a woohoo sugar, carbs, BACON kick then an eat right and exercise kick. Until... well, until I started on this winning streak!

First it was a month long personal trainer with Physzique Fitness. I have come to find out that everyone is a winner there. No, seriously EVERYONE can win a free membership for a month. And now I am on my second full week of attendance. So this new winning will hopefully get me even more excited about working out.

It is sad to say but my weight went up... gorging on friend foods and carbs will do that to you. But I have been being pretty consistent in the last two weeks. So in 10 months I will be attending a wedding for CM's sister, it will be the day before.

So there is that... and no photos today, but happy links and joyous cubicle dancing!

Much Love,

Good Morning! This past week has been a whirl wind and to be honesty I have not been the best on eating for the past four days...

The eating went down hill starting with the opening of a gastro pub down the street. It is all organic, green, has pasture raised, grass feed meats. 50+ beers on tap, 40 botttles of wine, and a full bar with hard A. Needless to say it was amazing, I had the free range burger with yam chips... and that was the start to the downward cycle...

The folllowing evening I was on a HUGE studying track for an interview that I nailed! Got asked back for the second round. That is step one, now 4 more to go before I land the job! And land the job I will my friends... it is in the cards, wished on the stars and perhaps said a bijillion prayers.

The next evening I went to see Joan Jett with an old high school friend. We were third row from the front which made for a spectacular show. At the end Joan was throwing flowers out to the crowd and we were heading out to leave when we saw these crazy kids. They were having so much fun posing for pictures and enjoying the lime light that I had to snap a photo! 

And finally yesterday CM and I went on a date, again to the fair as he had never been. And we saw the most amazing demonstrations, including the infamous Vita Mix blender. But since I was way to wrapped up in the demonstrations to snap a photo I got one of the tupperware stand instead. Hahaha! After the fair extravganza we headed to see Contagion. AHHH- Mazing! And I never want to touch my face again.... ever... Ended the night with dinner at the Applebees down the street (open late on Friday and Saturday). I had a steak and veggies (not to bad right??) and CM had the burger and fries, I may have been oogling the bacon on his burger... maybe. Then he dropped me off at home and I feel into a blissful sleep only to awake and tell you my little blog about what adventures I went on this week.

The nit and grit

So now that we have established that I am going to focus on fitness (oh the pain), weight loss (cravings, oh cravings) and cooking (cause I am an addict), i figured I would give the endless void an idea of what I look like now and where my goals are. YAY goals!! Cause everyone needs something to look at and realize that when they don't get there that they blew it on the extra helping of homemade mac and cheese or double chocolate cake with raspberry drizzle... Did i mention I have a food problem, cause I do. And to be honest SCREW the drizzle I would rather have more chocolate or heavy whipping cream on that sucker.

So to make a long story short, I am a giant tubby woman. Ok, maybe not giant but definitely uncomfortably overweight for me (that would be the key). So here I am, the virtual me, at a size 16 and *Gulp* 228.4 lbs.

Yes, I am a blonde with uber chubby cheeks. Just imagine black glasses and not being seen in public in a bikini and you get the picture. Eventually I will put a photo of my lovely person... yeah the real thing. But for now you get "The Virtual Avenger." The first goal is to get down to 200lbs... by December.. doable, maybe, reality though is that I am the self sabotage QUEEN. If there were a crown, sceptor, thrown and sash I would OWN them. Here is "Virtual Avenger" at 200lbs... 

Lookin better a little less like I spent the last 10 years of my life living off frosting and graham crackers. WHAT?!?! Don't look at me like that if you haven't done that yet you are quit simply missing out on life. I mean look at the glory of these!

Oh, I am salivating as I talk about these right now. Must resist... thank the good Lord that I don't have either in my house other wise it may have been go time between us. A serious sit down where I would have shown them who was boss. Anyways... by March I am hoping to be down to 175! And I would love to be in a size 12/10 by then Happy you are an old fart celebration in a new dress! And check out what I would look like.. well what "Virtual Avenger" would look like!

I almost would say stop right there, I am lookin pretty fine! Watch out world I am struttin my stuff and you best take notice, but no... I have a number in my head that I want to get to and a dress size. Truth be told I have never been in the dress size I am thinking of so lets all take a moment to breathe... ok... wait no.. still need to breathe...I want to be a size... 8! That's right a size 8 and 150lbs, in a fit manner!! Just typing it makes my heart speed up and start to freak out... Mwahaha!! Ok, before I start my happy dance of wonder here is the image of the end all glory of "Virtual Avenger"

Check out my hot virtual self... wondering where I got all these virtual amazing images? Well hop on over to here  and make yourself into a virtual model! Lets see this sequence all together shall we?

That is all for now folks, see you all tomorrow for another adventure... and maybe in cooking?

A whim

Last night after the Italian had left my roommates and I were sitting around chatting. What did we decide on, to each start a blog for a year long commitment to accountability. Each of us will write about something different. I will be focusing on my weight loss journey, and how to get fit/thin while changing my daily eating habits and exercise routine.

Red will be writing about world affairs. DP has yet to figure out what she will be writing about, but I will keep you informed!

Currently I have 80.8lbs to drop and 4 dress sizes... wish me luck!
