The Hubs reminds me of this often especially during my time I was super frustrated. I kept waiting for something big to happen, for me to step on the scale and have lost 10 lbs in a week. Not gonna happen ever. It's little by little pound by pound that gets you to your goal. Always keep that in mind. It really did help me get through it easier.

Yesterday though the boys on the other team actually said out loud in front of her that they didn't want to play against a girl. Their coach told them that they might want to rethink that if she gets their flags. Well, she actually ended up getting 2 flags during the game! Their coach said "See! A girl got your flags!" Bella just smiled and kept playing like she never heard one thing those boys said!
Now I've always been proud of my Bella Belle, but this weekend I was immensely proud of her & not listening or taking to heart what those boys were saying. Her team has always welcomed her & she plays her heart out every game. I hate that she has to hear it at such an early age, but we keep telling her girls can do whatever boys can do! And she now knows it!

So this week I am focusing on motivation.
This is a HUGE one for me. I look at all the beautiful thin girls in their mid-20's and wish I was back there sometimes. I was insanely thin & fit in my teens and twenties. I could eat whatever I craved and never gain a pound. Then I had Bella at 25, and was able to loose all of the baby weight within 6 months after having her. (I gained 35 lbs during the pregnancy). Then my 30's hit & boom the weight came on and stayed around.
There's days when I look in the mirror and are disgusted with my body. At least the bottom 1/2. There's days when I look and think wow this is actually working for me. All depends on my mood, water weight, etc. but I always think I could definitely loose more. Myself is my biggest competition.
I love this quote. Mainly because I am not an emotional eater except when it comes to boredom. If I'm home relaxing and not even hungry, I start to munch. I might not munch on "bad foods" (i.e. chips, queso, popcorn), but I still munch.
On the flip side, when I'm really pissed off or upset, I always get to the gym. I get that aggravation out or blast my headphones and get that horrible sad feeling out. It really does work and once I'm done, I'm done. Same goes for running. Being out there by yourself for 30 or so minutes really helps clear your mind.
Last one for today is perfect for everyone that wants to slack off or eat that doughnut that someone brought to the office. (Or in my case breakfast tacos! They're my weakness!)
It ain't easy, not in the least. It's damn hard, it sucks, it's the toughest thing you can challenge yourself to do, but in the end it is absolutely worth it!
I keep thinking about wearing that swimsuit on the beaches & going to Vegas this Fall, I want to look good and I want to be happy with myself before any of those happen.
Stick to it, the hard work, the tears, the blood, the sweat, the pain, they will ALL be worth it in the end.

My official weigh in days is every Wednesday. And after waking up I immediately weigh myself. Lately it's been a rollercoaster of emotions. Some weeks I loose a pound or two, some weeks I stay the exact same weight & a few weeks there I was gaining. Not pretty people.
So I figured why not have some motivation for my weigh in Wednesdays. I'm pre blogging this, so not sure how well my weight went this week, but not being able to run or work out at all probably didn't help. Boo! But I'm hoping it's gets better by next week!
Happy Wednesdays people!

We had her pic put on a water bottle with her name & a pic of her football team... she loves that darn thing!
Okay so this past weekend we were asking if she wanted us to re-sign her up for football in the Spring... her only word was NO! A very defiant, "I've had enough of this sport" type no. Oh we've gone through this many many times... Gymnastics, Swimming, Soccer... the list keeps growing.
Now as all us moms know, I'm happy she wants to try out sports and she is getting a work out in. Sometimes I just wish she'd pick a sport she loves and stick to it. She was amazing at soccer and hated it, great at gymnastics and got sick of it, etc. When we asked her what sport she wants to try for Spring she said T-Ball, Swimming, & maybe gymnastics! Whew!
So we're taking it day by day and starting with swimming in March. She is a pretty good swimmer already, but she wants to start really swimming and maybe try competitive swimming. We shall see once Summer comes around if we're sticking to it! Ha!

So I've been working out and eating healthy for around 4 weeks now. I've lost a little over 5 lbs total which for me doesn't seem enough but in the grand scheme of things it's 5 lbs less than I had in 2013! Also I'm pretty short (5' 4") so when I loose any weight it shows on me somehow.
Here's my thing I had to finally give up... alcohol.
Yep, and wine is my love. Seriously, The Hubs & I usually have a glass of wine with dinner. Every.single.night.
Now that is out the window. I only get to have a drink or two on Saturday nights.
Let me tell you how hard this is for me... we have a Kegerator in the garage.
Yeah we are lucky and always have some Shiner Light Blonde on tap for friends and family that stop by.
It's much MUCH easier for me to give up beer than wine.
So I completely got rid of all my wine in the casa.
Now I'm not saying I'm totally giving up any and all alcohol at all, cause if you know me at all, you know that shall never happen, but knowing that I'm helping my body & feeding it the right things makes me know it's all worth it in the end.
Plus the whole loosing weight thing helps me want another glass of water with dinner after drinking water literally all day long.
Plus on top of that, I eat much healthier & work out 3-4 times a week now.
Hoping to loose much more weight sooner than later.

I have been wanting to try this new BB cream from Physicians Formula for a while now. I'm not even a huge fan of BB Creams at all, but this one is supposedly amazing.
I think for the summer and when I'm lying on a beach somewhere this might make the perfect non-makeup makeup look!
