No Nonsense November!

Well its been a few weeks again but not as bad as the last time! I've been (all together now) BUSY!! I know, I know what's new? LOL Well I must say for the record life has been hectic but when I started this blog way back when that was the premise and the reason I decided to take a stab at blogging again because my story was like a lot of other busy women on the go who neglect themselves and their health for so many other things and people. Its a habit I had to unlearn and I felt the need to share my workout journey to prove we can still take over the world and exercise and be fit & fab. 

I am learning:

I don't always have to be the first person to say yes
or the second one to volunteer to help
or feel guilty for missing a meeting for a workout or to just rest

I don't have to be too hard on myself all the time. 
Missed workouts will happen. 
New jeans will get tight. 
I can go back to square one and get back on track.
and most importantly if I love & take care of myself all the pieces really do come together...

But its a process. I would never say I am cutting back on my busy ways.  Some people thrive off being busy! That's me. If I don't have a lot of stuff to do I will pull my hair out, out of boredom. I can only take down time in small controlled doses like at a spa day. I could never just stay home even if I was Paris Hilton rich I'd have to find something to do. That's just who I am. A lot of the women in my family are the same way so its in my DNA and my only real goal is to incorporate some self love in the form of eating right and exercise more times than not to reach my goals.

Confession time! I finally saw my trainer yesterday after over a month! :-O I know right! On the upside the workout was good and I felt like I got a good workout in and I don't feel super sore today.

Charles is starting a bootcamp from this Tuesday and it meets twice a week (Tues/Thurs) at 5:30am till Dec 15th! That actually works for me because I have that longgg commute but I am teaching 3 classes soon to be 4 and I've been going in late anyway so I can go straight to class in the evenings. 

I jumped on it because my 14s are tighhttttt and my goal was to lose 25 pounds and only lost 13. Not that I am turning my nose up at 13 pounds b/c I see the difference big time!

I plan to work on a new Vision Board for my end of the year goals! I plan to lose these 19 pounds by 12-31-2011 

Let's Do It! 
I already put a request out to some of my peeps to see if they will join me! This will be great! I can feel it! :-)


  1. I'm in! I need to lose 20 by the end of the year. Any suggestions??

  2. Hey Mo!! I am always an advocate for Weight Watchers and I am about to post about my boot camp! That may be a great idea to jump start you!
