Weekend Recap a day late

Happy Tuesdsay everyone!

My weekend was jam packed! I got a little too drunky drunk on the wedding I attended on Friday and took DAYS to recover. I am just not as young as I used to be haha.

Sorry for the no post yesterday I was still in the "all I want to do is lay in bed mode"

I got my workout out in on friday. However, I will be honest I did not get my scehduled run in on Saturday boo! But that's what this journey is all about turn a set back into a come back! I ate like crap for the last two days but I am back at it today!

I am going to try something and try not to weigh myself until the friday after this friday (May 17) I want to workout every day if possible and not cheat. I am challenging myself to this because I cannot depend on the scale to dictate how I feel about myself I want to feel so great I dont even care what the scale says!

I have my scheduled JM and run tonight so lets do this! Meal prep is done and I "have worked too hard to give up now!

Here is recap of my weekend in Pictures: (side note: I was trying to save this dress to wear to my brothers grad party this weekend but I'll just be wearing it again then ha!)

Here are some pics of the hotel we stayed in where the wedding was held:

There was a freaking tv inside of the mirror in the bathroom. Bestie wanted in the pic too lol

They had a mashed potato bar and it was literally the best thing EV!

Bride! She was so pretty!

And the very end of the night!

And my little brother had his senior prom on Saturday too!

My brothers group he went in!

And pretty much the cutest pic I've ever seen!

That is all for today guys! Hope you have great one :)

April Stats, Dietbet Ends and Remember the Time

Hey All! Happy Thursday! Last day of the week for this girl!

So getting up this morning to workout was a big fat FAIL! ugh I went to bed too late last night and all I wanted this morning was pancakes and bacon but I prevailed! Dinner with the boy and his dad and fiance so I guess I'll just have to squeeze it in tonight! But NO EXCUSES right!?

Dietbet: So it is now May 2nd and my first dietbet has ended! I received this message this morning

Yay! I did it! And I surpassed my goal! this was so fun and I definitely will be signing up for more! Who wouldn't want to get paid for something they're already doing!? Win Win!

As a lot of you know I am doing JM or trying to do ALL month of may. I tried doing this last month but due to my basement flooding etc it was a huge fail. I am obviously not at my first goal weight yet (not being considered overweight for my height is my first goal weight) And I am not ready to share my number until then. However I did take measurements and obviously catch you up on how the month of April went for me :)

April Stats: April 1-May 1

Total Weight Loss: 11 lbs

Inches Lost:

Waist 29.527
low waist 3634

For those of you counting that is a grand total 10.5 Inches gone and 11lbs gone!

Overall I am super happy with my April losses! It's time like these when I am frustrated at how long the process is taking that I can look back and see how far I've come in such a short amount of time. I am determined to finish ORB strong and stick with my workout and food goals!

AND I PROMISE to provide before and after pics after my consisten Ripped in 30 month of may stay tuned!

And last but not least I am linking up with the always amazing Kimmy for Remember the time!


I only got one for today...

Remember the time...when it was snowing when you woke up in the middle of spring? And its projected to keep snowing until 11Am the next day with inches of accumulation in MAY!? Oh right..that's TODAY.  Guess theres a first for everything in life, snow in May. NICE Iowa!

Hey Everyone! Happy Wednesday!

Ok people are you ready for this?? It is a MIRACLE!!! This girl got up at 6am to get her workout with Jillian in!

It wasn't all that bad! I really enjoy RI30. I am doing the May Meltdown with Ms Michaels challenge all month long with some of my fav blog girls you can catch up on that from yesterdays post! I HOPE to do it every single day this month, hey no excuses right!? BUT if I can make it at least 5 days a week I will be happy.

I will of course be incorporating this ALONG with my Hal Hidgon's 5k training! I did my 2.5 miles last night. It was PAINFULLY slow but hey I lasted right!?

I have NOT weighed myself since last week and do not plan on doing it until this Friday again. The scale and I have not been on the best terms lately and she puts me in a hell of a mood SO on  that note I will be sticking with once a week weigh ins!

I have a wedding to go to out of town on Friday and Saturday is my brothers prom so I have to get in all my runs this week by Saturday meaning I am HOPING to get up early tomorrow and fri to get my 2 mile and then 2.5 mile runs in before the weekend. I will just be too busy and don't want to worry about when I will get it in and how.

Lets finish Operation Red Bikini strong! This is the LAST month I cannot believe it! Lets get after it! And cheers to never ever EVER looking like the pic on the left EVER again! :)
