Congrats to Mr and Mrs WING

SO everyone it has been a little while now that I have written anything so here it is....

I was struggling for about 2 weeks as I was on my monthly cycle and gained 8lbs. This is always devastating as with this always comes water retention and weight gain. I was reluctant to post anything as I know that many of you are looking for big results at the moment. I thought to myself, the people that are reading this are people that always support me and encourage me and will me to do the best for myself.

Weight loss is the hardest thing I have ever had to do in my life and with my life and work being as active and hectic and emotionally draining as it sometimes is.... I still struggle. SO no matter what I hold myself accountable to you the readers, but most importantly myself.

SO I took this weight gain personally as if I was the reason only reason why I gained this weight! So with that I began to eat garbage, cause as I said I am an emotional eater. But then I realized that by eating this way would only hurt the cause and slow down the process of what I really want....Good Health.

I was a Hostess and Co-Organizer for my friends Colleen and David Wing's wedding this weekend! It was so beautiful and they are an amazing couple and with the divine power from God they are going to do powerful things in each other's lives.

Meet Mr & Mrs. David Wing

BRUK WAAY TIME... Jamaican Style

So are you wondering what and how I ate???? Well this wedding was buffet style, so I was able to pick choose and refuse certain items that I knew would send me over the top with the feeling of bloating and guilt. I saw what was good for me and I choose that. This is hard to do in a buffet line as by the time you get there you are ravishingly hungry and everything looks appetizing and wonderful, but I choose wisely. And then came along the BIG ASS desert table.

Here is where my taste buds gave way on me and I produced saliva like a dog who sees a new chewy bone. I looked and looked and I said " I can try something, just not everything" So I cut myself a small piece of choc tiger cake, and in actual fact this was already cut small so I cut it smaller.... And I added tons of fruit and called it a day! This is the first time that I had not gone back to the desert table for 2nds, much less 3rds.

I felt good about the choice that I found that I do have the will power to do this, so I pat myself on the back!!! " Good Job Self"...

SO it is after 10 am in the morning and guess what??? I am off to see Aaron at 11am. So stay tuned folks this journey is off and running...

Thank you to everyone who committed on reading my post and giving me comments of encouragements! Love you all!

SOOOO Happy togetherrrrrr....

Good Morning Folks,
So People have been asking me to show them the face of my pain instructor Aaron well here he is...Oh please don't let the boyish grin fool ya'll.

:Inflicting pain in the ass @ 5 am :Yelling at me to continue :Texting me the middle of the damn day to see what I'm eating :Thinking of painful workouts on the drive to the gym
This is the reason I curse so much in the morning, but the reason that I am on the way to my goal FINALLY....Boy his head is going to

So I had the pleasure of training with my girl Vanessa from Chi-Town this morning. Vanessa is an avid workout chick, but was distraught about what she had to endure this morning with Aaron and myself...
Take a look.


Walking on my hands to hit the damn medicine ball with my elbow! What the HECK!!!

At the end of the workout I looked like this.....

what the heck was all this that he had me doing? He was just showing off! But to tell you the truth, it felt good! Just not telling him that. I have found that my focus is different.

Before I only went to the gym as though it was my sentence as I paid for it, now I actually enjoy waking up at 4:15am to get to the gym and have a workout. Even though I have small goals to achieve I actually enjoy what I am doing. That is the different.

I have decided to make a small goal for myself and that is to run a mini mini marathon, so I went to the Running Room and asked questions. the gentleman was so happy because:

1) He thought he was going to get paid for signing another person up

2) He thought that he was going to coerce me to buy some shoes. But I was not having any of that.

I asked about a mini marathon.. He said "Oh a 10K" and I gasped for air a bit and laughed and said "NO" then he said oh okay "5K" and I asked him if there is one smaller than that, like a 2.5 k and he looked at me as though I was damn crazy and I was sooo dead serious. But he told me that alot of the marathon are walk and run marathons. So this is the goal, to be able to do this 5K run/walk without passing out and vomiting and peeing myself and passing out! August 21 or 22 is the attempted goal.... Oh dear Lord what have I gotten myself into....

Pray for me!

It was good Vanessa, so now as you go home to sleep, I go to work to a Mother's Day party at work with cupcakes, chips, chocolate and yes me with my veggies and hummus...BLAH!

I soooooooo hurt!
