Oh my wonderful and faithful Nobody, how are you doing today? I am wonderful. Floating on cloud number nine actually. My boyfriend just took my measurement and I surpassed my goal for the month! That's right. I gave myself a goal of 1-1 1/2 inches. From January 29th  I have lost a total of 2.125 inches, bringing my grand total from the 8th of January up to 3.75 inches. Pretty good if you ask me.

I have joined My Fitness Pal, and loving every moment of it! I have even been allowing myself small things like cookies. I bake a batch, have one or two and then distribute them amongst my friends and family. Means that I get to bake and do what I love, and everyone else gets to enjoy the cookies :)

Sorry, this entry isn't going to be very big, basically just an update. I am just going to start putting up smaller updates when I have something worth updating now. So hopefully there will be no more rants!

Alright Nobody, you know the drill. Red is the original size measured on January 8th, green is my goal size, yellow is my present size and now blue will be the difference

Bust A: 44.5 n/a  41 3/8 3.125 inches
Bust B: 37 37.17 34 7/8 2.125 inches
Waist: 34.75 24.05 31  3.75 inches
Hips: 42 33.63 38 1/2 3.5 inches

So you can see why I would be happy right now. So Thursday I will be getting my reward! So I shall post an update on that when it is all said and done!

Well...that is all I am going to do then. Now for some inspiration!

Lateness...bad habit

Sorry, this whole being late thing is getting worse. I actually have two measurements to update you with. Sorry. This past little chunk of the month has been really busy and tedious to get through and to be honest when I finally have an hour to myself the last thing I seem to want to do is sit here and write to Nobody. Oh well. Lets get right into it.

First off, why haven't I been updating you when I DO have free time? Well...between work, the gym and family I only seem to get enough time to eat and sleep and SOMETIMES get an hour to myself. What do I do with that hour? Well, you remember that Kobo reader I told you about? Well, the first book I found and put on it I have not been able to tear myself away from for very long. Think of it as furthering my education towards my goal. That's right. I managed to find a copy of a Marilyn Monroe Biography! This one is The Secret Life of Marilyn Monroe by J. Randy Taraborrelli.

So far it has completely enraptured me with her complicated childhood and her quick thrust into adulthood. Serioulsy, when I am done I may have to do a full review because right now I am only 35% though the book - and I don't want to bore you all with the blow by blow accounts of her life that I find so interesting. So if you don't hear from me, it is because I am with her, haha.

Alright. I'm not going to fill you in on all of the boring and tediousness that is my life, so I will just get it all out of the way and say that life is long and complicated and I'd feel much better if people would respond to my freaking phone calls! Okay. Now that we have that out of the way. On with the measurements! I will have to add yet another colour to represent last weeks (sorry). I also regret to say that I had (for a time) succumb to stress eating and therefore my measurements went up. I am also having my most wonderful time of the month right now (seriously if mother nature was really a woman then men would get this, not us!) so as most women know, this also affects measurements. So here we go!

** Red is the original size measured on January 8th, green is my goal size, aqua is last weeks size, yellow is my present size and now blue will be the difference

Bust A: 44.5 n/a 41 6/8 41 6/8  2.75 inches
Bust B: 37 37.17 35 7/8 35 1/2 1.5 inches
Waist: 34.75 24.05  33 32 1/2  2.25 inches
Hips: 42 33.63 39 6/8 39 1/8 2.875 inches

Alright. So. My first reactions? Well I'm surprised and happy, but at the same time I am incredibly disappointed in myself. I could be doing much better if I had more self-control. I will be working on that this week. I have also joined M.F.P (My Fitness Pal - google that shit) I have joined the millions who count calories, and I am freaking anal about it! I have made sure to add even the smallest thing to it just to make sure that it is telling me everything that I need to know. What have I learned? I work out a lot and I do not get enough protein! So, we'll have to work on that.

It's crunch time now though. I have one week to lose at the very least 1/8 of an inch - although I am shooting for a full 1/4. Then I get my reward! Even booked the appointment so now I have to work even harder, otherwise I will have to cancel it and feel like a failure. How's THAT for self-motivation!? So do you want to know what it is? TOO BAD! mwahahahaha. This is something that I am going to reveal if I get to it. If not - the number goes up and the goal gets transferred to next month.

Now, if you shall excuse me, I am going to lose myself in the written word on the life of Miss Marilyn and wait for my boyfriend to finish work for our gym date.

Until we speak again
See, sexy woman can cook!

Sorry Nobody...life has gotten busy and I usually fight to have the time to sleep...especially since when I have free time all that I want to do is read!! (Damn new Kobo!!)

More tomorrow I swear!


Love that smile :)
Here's a freebee!

To Quote the White Rabbit...

I'm late! I'm Late! For a very important date! No time to say "Hello"- Goodbye! I'm late, I'M Late! I'M LATE!

Good afternoon, Nobody. That's right. I haven't seen anyone really reading my blog at all, however that will not stop me. Instead I shall begin every blog addressed to "Nobody". Alright, so I'm late. Again. Sunday has now shifted to Thursday in my day planner. I could give you a thousand reasons why I am late posting. The long story involves doctors, work, and my brother "temporarily" moving in. The short story; Life sucks.

Alright. So it has been a very busy and long week, and it is not nearly over so I will just jump right into it. I did remember to take my measurements on Sunday, so it's not like I gave myself a few extra days to shed. Heck I don't think I shed much at all to be honest. In fact, I am adding a new category to my charts. From here on out I will also be posting the difference in size. We'll see how this goes. So. As always, red is the original size measured on January 8th, green is my goal size, yellow is my present size and now blue will be the difference. By now you should know where I take my measurements as well...let us begin!

Bust A: 44.5 n/a 41.75 2.75 inches
Bust B: 37 37.17 35.125  1.875 inches
Waist: 34.75 24.05  32.875  1.875 inches
Hips: 42 33.63 40 2 inches

Alright. So...my breasts have gotten smaller. Actually happy about that. I have been able to wear button up shirts again (yes, I am excited about this!) Other than that I think that I am hitting a plateau in being able to notice a difference. Oh well. When one stops being able to see it, one must amp it up! Which leads me into goals. Now, since this week is almost over I am not going to start out with "this week I will" Instead I am going to just tell you some changes I am going to be making to my eating and exercising.

The other night I went down to the gym and found it LOCKED (*gasp*) I was not happy, so I stomped up the stairs to my apartment and felt very defeated. However, instead of sitting on my butt and feeling sorry for myself, I grabbed my laptop and took it to the spare room, along with a water bottle, and an exercise mat I had laying around. Now, I stumbled upon her after some research through a fitness page I am on through FB. Now, I am pretty sure that I am going to be addicted. It's hard to explain how awesome this woman is so I'll just post her page and hopes that someone (that means you Nobody) checks it out.


The exercises are referred to as "Pop Pilates" Now, I know that doing pilates is actually AGAINST my goals, however she has these print outs of exercises, either do one page 4 times, or find 3 other pages to go with it. After a lot of filtering through the abundance of pages (keeping my goals and my abilities in mind) I have found four that I am going to start doing as of tonight. I will still be doing my running in the morning, then probably finish up my day with these as I find them somewhat relaxing. I'm thinking I'll do them for 14 days and see how it goes.  

On top of that, my next goal is to cut back - WAY back on my snacking. I am hoping to go out and get a workout/food journal tomorrow or Saturday, because I always feel obligated to write down even the smallest thing. Hopefully seeing all of it will help me get things under control.

I've also figured out an awesome motivation for myself (apart from the obvious, "yay I have an awesome body" thing) but I will share that next time ;) 

Until next time!
