This week has been one of LOTS of reading for exams and LOTS of strep throat. In the past this may have meant sabbotage for all I have worked for but I have managed to maintain my losses and have lost a little. Last night I realized that if I dont make it convienient for my hubby to exercise he wont, so I cleaned out my room and set it up to resume the P90X series. Last night we did ab ripper and Cardio X which together is 1hr of intense exercise. Hopefully he will continue even on the days when I cannot be home. Only 9 days left until this month is over and I am going to make them count! Good Luck everyone. I'm betting we can lose another 200lbs this month!

slow and steady, I will win this race!

This week has so far been a good one. I am realizing that because I am not putting ALL my effort into weight loss like last month my small losse mean so much more. It feels like something I could do for the rest of my life, where last month that seemed really overwhelming. Now my diet hasnt been perfect and I havent been eating clean like I would like but I have been making better choices while still accepting that right now perfect isnt an option. That acceptance is going to be key in maintaining my weight loss over the next year.

Wow 3lbs loss has never seemed so good!

OMG...This week has been crazy! I have been working 4 days and at school all day for 3 days so that leaves...0 days. I have really settled into the nursing program this week, and realized a sad truth. People in healthcare eat some real CRAP! Sitting in the lunch room on tuesday I looked around over my spinach wrap and almonds and all I saw was microwave meals, pizza, and TONS of junk food. The next 12 months is really going to be a test of will power. The new hectic schedule hasnt been so bad BUT I have very little time to exercise so its making diet super important and challenging my commitment to myself. Because of this I thought it would be good to remind me what my motivations really are and I thought it would be nice to share them all with you. The following images are what I come home to everynight at about midnight when I finally walk through the door.

Aren't they so sweet when they're sleeping?
