My Personal 2 Week Bootcamp

The holidays are here and I am a little nervous but more determined than ever to stay on track. Everywhere I turn there is someone cooking or baking a holiday treat or meal and lets not even talk about Thanksgiving.

This year I have another plan though. See my company's Christmas party is on Dec. 5 and after looking through my closet of what I will be wearing I decided to finally wear this leather bodycon dress I purchased from my own boutique (shop our holiday sale here). This is a faux leather, hug all your curves type of dress. While I will definitely will be wearing shape wear under it and I like it on me I want to put my best look forward and kill the room with this dress.

This has lead me to buckle down and be a strict as possible to make this happen. Now normally I am strict, but for these next two weeks there will be no cheat meals or snacks and I will also add strength training to my daily workouts. I should be strength training anyway and this is a good way to kick start it! I will share with you my 2 week results and here is my before.

My weight today is 292

Why I Have to Be Strict With Eating

I always hear about people having cheat meals or even days. I learned the hard way that I am not one those people that can partake in a cheat anything. I have been battling binge eating since I can remember and it is something that I know can not be taken lightly. I have to focus and be very strict with what I can eat because if I have something (mainly sugar related items) it is all over for me. And I am not talking about sweets and candy. Any type of sauce (other than tomato based), greasy foods, and grain products like bread will do me in.

Being strict actually leaves me with limited options of what I can eat, which is why eating clean has always worked out best for me to maintain eating right and losing weight. I recently, at the beginning of October, gave myself a cheat meal. That eventually lead to a cheat day and then to a cheat month. I fell completely off and I am just now getting back on track. Sugar addiction is alive and well when it comes to me and once I get a taste it takes a while to get it under control.

There are a few things I have to do down to the T in order to keep myself on tract:

What Putting in That Work Can Do

It has been a while since I have checked in with you guys about my healthy journey. So I am giving you all the deets today in my progress.

So in August my sister who owns a fitness company (Trophy Wife Fitness... check her out) told me about a weight loss group she and her friends are doing. It is basically an accountability group. Every month we state our goals and at the end of the month we state our progress at that point. In between we give each other tips and what not to help each other along our journeys. So the starting date was August 10 and for some reason this was just the push I needed.

Say Yes to Mesh!!!!!

Mesh is VERY big this fall season. You will find it on everything from dresses to tops and even on pants. And whats not to love about it? It adds a bit of sass and edge to any look so mesh gets a big thumbs up from Size Fabulous. Check out these different looks for a little inspirations when putting your mesh looks together.

Maxi Skirt in The Fall?????....OH YEA

In Syracuse, fall is legit borderline winter lol. The heat must come on in the house and you have to have a coat near by. For the most part you have to dress winter ready but on the slight occasion we might hit 60 degrees I am ready with my maxi skirt lol.

Another Day, Another Childhood Obesity Study that Doesn't Make Sense!!!

Ok............

I can't even begin where I want to begin.........

I am so over it.....

On Yahoo today, I came across an article titled "Can Antibiotics Early in Life Put Your Child at Risk for Obesity?" First thing that comes to my mind is why people are still trying to find things to blame obesity on. This is my problem....

While I do feel there is a problem with obesity, I also feel we (as in the individual/parent) is responsible for it in most cases. Those who suffer from medical conditions that lead to weight gain do no fall in that category due to it being out of their control. But for those, myself included, our weight issues are a result of our own choices.
