Staying Focused and a New Do

I am pretty sure I mentioned the fact that I want to make some changes to my body, and eat better etc many many many times on here.  I have that tummy that has always been my “problem area” and I always wish it was flatter.  I am constantly on a rollercoaster of eating better and then letting it all fall to shit and falling off the wagon and all my hard work goes out the window.  I am not being hard on myself, I am the one making the choices and I have always said “I want to live”.  If I want to enjoy myself and pig out on pizza and chips then I am going to do it.  My problem is that I do that, and then I think oh well, I already messed up and just keep going.  I need to stop doing that.

I have also mentioned that I have been participating in the HBBC challenge that Amanda at Run to the Finish is hosting.  It has helped me make some really positive changes.  I am drinking a lot more water every day, something I have always really sucked at.  I am also trying to increase my fruits and veggies intake.  Part of the challenge that I think is amazing is all the encouragement that I get from my fellow participants.  It’s so great to have the support system.

I was so inspired by the group that on Wednesday I got up early to do another at home workout.  I usually go to CrossFit on Wednesdays after work but I couldn’t this week, so I got up early and did my own thing.


6 rounds

10 pushups

10 sit ups

10 squats

Anyone who says they don’t have time to work out is cray cray in my opinion. This took max 8 minutes and I worked up a good sweat.  After that I did a Tabata and did it with Russian twist.  By the 6th round my abs were killing me.  I finished it off with 5 sets of 10 strict press with dumbbells.  Mental note- I need heavier dumbbells.

I am definitely noticing changes on my body.

After work I went and got my hair done.  I decided that my ombre had seen it’s last day.  I think it was more of a Summer thing.  So I went back to my old faithful look and went dark dark dark.

After feeling properly spoiled at the salon, I went home just to feel even more spoiled to have dinner made and served to me by my amazing guy.  It was delicious.  Man am I ever a lucky girl.  Seriously,  how did I get to be so lucky and end up with such an amazing life?  I ask myself this question all the time.


How often do you change up your “do”?


What did you have for dinner last night?

  1. i’m changing up my “do” tomorrow. Going darker and getting rid of the gray! can’t wait. last night’s supper was a kid request… panfried pork dumplings and edamame…yummo!!!

  2. My “do” is a bit of a roller coaster… I’m going through the crappy growing-out phase right now, then I’ll keep it long for a while, then realize I live with it tied back, get bored, cut it all off again. And the cycle continues. Dinner last night? I’ll confess my laziness… Had breakfast :p but scrambled egg whites, sweet potato and sausage are just so good…
