Days 365 to 350

Standard

What’s with the numbers Tam? Thanks for asking… I am counting down to my Birthday so that is how I will be updating my blog for the next year.

Moving on….

So it has been two weeks since my Birthday and weight loss has be minimal, which I figured as such. My sister came into town the next day so I knew that week would involve food, playing Sequence and movie watching. I did manage to get my 10,000 steps in everyday but that was really just to counteract the yummy foods we were eating.

My Diet Could Be Described As Unsupervised Child at Birthday Party

Saw this on Pinterest today, Bahahahaha

Then the day after my sister left, my sister in-law and I took of for Nebraska to watch the Solar Eclipse in Totality!!! Back story… SIL and I like to bond with some drinks on the paddle boat at night and look at the stars, planets, space stations and whatever else is floating in the sky. So when she heard about being able to view the eclipse in totality just a short 6 hour drive away…. she booked our room 363 days in advance! If you ever get the chance to see a Solar Eclipse in Totality, I highly suggest you do it, we already have plans for 2024. So those few days consisted of 20 hours in the car, lots of drinks and pool time. Once again not ideal for weight loss, but I did take a few walks while there and treaded water while in the pool to make sure I was moving.

I was already to get going Wednesday morning when I was finally home and wouldn’t you know it I am sick!! Two days so far but I am going to be better tomorrow morning, that is what I am telling myself. No plans for the weekend just getting the house packed more, kids ready for school next week and working on my steps.

I knew these two weeks were going to be really off, so I am ready to get going in the morning and I will let you know on my progress next week!

Love Always … Tam

On the Eve of my 34th Birthday

Standard

Here I sit on the eve of my 34th Birthday…. What 34? I think someone messed up the math on that. Any who it is happening I will soon be rounding the bend to 40 (old people are 40, I’m not close to that age!) Apparently the dementia is starting… ok, ok where am I going with this post…. Birthday Resolutions (kind of like a make up for New Years)

Weight loss is always at the top of my goals and I would really like to get it out of the running and be done with it once and for all. My goal is to lose 100+ pounds in the next year, there I said it, it’s out in the world. My license still has the same weight on there from when I was 16 and I want it to be correct when I go to renew it!

For my birthday I bought myself a new scale and a new pair of walking shoes (I’m no runner and don’t plan on ever being one) Not sure what the plan is for this weight loss but I have a stack of workout DVD’s and my Fitbit. I would like to find a class to go to once a week since it sounds like my Zumba class won’t be back anytime soon 😦

Goals, I like goals and I’m a visual person so I have my Bloom Daily Planner: Vision Planner marked up with some mini goals and I created a spreadsheet to show me where I should be at to meat my goal by the deadline.

Along with this blog I am want to be more open on my instagram and post pictures, gasp! Doubt I will be posting any skin showing pictures right away but I will have them in my phone for when I am ready to make it public. I am always looking for people on weight loss journeys and it seems like they never post until they have lost the bulk of the weight and I want to document the whole journey so when I have those days that I struggle I have something to look back too.

It is out in the universe, now time to start working!!

Love Always … Tam

What’s Up?

Standard

What’s Up, besides my weight that is….How can you want something so bad, but yet you can’t control yourself to get it?  Yesterday as we were watching TV a commercial came on for one of those media-spas that “get rid of your body fat in just one day” Vivian turns and looks at me and says “mom why don’t you do that?” I told her because it doesn’t just work like that and it cost lots of money. Bless her heart that g12513857_10208527355720936_8188607754644347526_oirl looks at me and says in all seriousness “I know, I can give you all the money in my piggy bank for it” That right there should have broke my heart in two, made me hop up and get on that treadmill, instead I just sat in my chair and curled up in my blanket a little longer. I know that she is getting older and starting to notice more that mommy has a “big booty butt” (as we call it) and a big belly and I cringe at the day that she will be embarrassed by me because her mommy is fat. I mean I am going to embarrass through out the years, but I don’t want it to be because of my weight.

Last night my mom called me to come over to have a late night “business meeting” in the hot tub. I went over, we sat in that hut tub for 2 hours!! The night was perfect with a full moon, no wind and it was almost 30 degrees out! We talked about work and started getting excited for our upcoming season of senior pictures and our new class of spokesMODELS, we talked about all the new cool stuff coming into the Boutique for the next sale (all I can say is think Joanne Gaines!) and of course we talked about our weight. How we still haven’t lost anything over the winter, how 4th of July will be here before we know it and how this year was going it be different! Man I so want it to be different, I want to skinny (I am using this term loosely because I know it isn’t all about size), I want to go and pick out a cute outfit for the 4th and not just see what there is in my size and looks decent.

Rant over, thanks for listening.

Love Always … Tam
