Feeling a little Sassy - You Gal Sassy

I've gotten over my lingering sickness and I'm back on the scene and what I must say is that I'm feeling a little sassy. Sassy you may ponder yes sassy! It has nothing to do with the 8 lbs that it's taken me 7 weeks to lose but more so with the way that I'm feeling about the changes that I've implemented.

I'm so loving my sessions with Jason the personal trainer here at the office. I'm not lifting hundreds of pounds or running unstopped but I'm making time for me. I love that I can walk away from my desk and get in a good workout and go home and I love the fact that I'm pushing myself when walking the trail because I've added a little jogging in there.

In the past I've viewed time as my enemy and I'm not saying that I have all this new found time but I'm choosing to allocate my time a little differently.

I love the fact that I've carved out a plan and I'm executing it.

Just the other day someone was talking about how they weren't motivated to lose weight and my reply to them was do what motivates you! Don't do what others are doing just do you! There is no success in fulfilling the goals of others.

Stacy gone M.I.A?!?!?!

In my infamous Dr. Oz TV appearance voice, "Heeeeeeyyyyyy!" I know it seems like forever and a day since I last posted a blog. I must send out my apologies to you all, life has been coming at me hard and fast but I am moving strong and holding my head up.

So in the midst of life happening I have NOT completely fallen off plan or my activity schedule I have just had to make some readjustments here and there and made 1 or 2 u-turns as well. I will admit in the past two weeks I partook in a half a brownie sundae and even had a few sips of soda .. YIKES (No worries Dr. Roizen set me straight!!)! However, u-turn made, new schedule that actually fits into my life and those of my kids has been made and I am sticking to it and moving forward! After all I need to hit my goal before the end of this Sexy by Summer Challenge!

I made the dreaded trek across campus to the Fitness Center this morning to weigh in. I'll let you in on a little secret .. I hate weigh in time!!! The scale was actually quite mericful. Here are my results:

Weight: Lost 5lbs
Waist - Lost 1/2 inch

I'd say for encountering some minor setbacks this is not bad at all! This also opened my eyes to the need of consistency. No matter what life throws at us stick to your master plan and what is important to you, granted we may be side tracked and even down for a minute but we MUST get back up and continue to strive for what we want!

So if you find that life threw you into a rut don't stay down. Dust yourself off and keep on moving forward. If you need assiantance never be afraid to ask for it.

Up and Moving

Hey all! I'm still moving slow and YOU Gal Stacy says that I'm running too much, not resting enough and need to go back to the doctor so I think that I may take her up on slowing down, getting some rest and revisiting the doctor. My baby girl is doing much better after a trip to the ER, doctors office, a couple of days in the hospital and follow up trip to the doctors office and some TLC from mom and dad.

I've been hitting those steps off and on and steering clear of the felons. Feeling the way that I do makes you not want to eat and I'm not a whinner and I hate taking meds or going to the doctor but this time around somehting has to give.

I weighed in this morning and the scale says I'm up .7 lbs so weighing in at 181.9.

Welcome back to all of you who were on spring break, under the weather of just not reporting in. Let's dust ourselves off and getter done!

If you aren't feeling well make sure your focus is on getting better and eating right, the weight/waist loss will come.

Happy Stepping!
