Fitness Update!

I'll be quick this time, but only because I'm excited.  Since February, I've lost 14 pounds.  

For me, this is huge!  I still have 5 pounds to be my "goal" weight (when I graduated from college) and honestly, could probably lose another 10 after that to be at my "healthiest" weight (...from when I was around 21...I wonder if achieving legal drinking age had anything to do with weight gain *wink*).

Okay, so that means that's taken seemingly forever and I'm only half way there.  However, I plan to keep myself pepped up and excited by going shopping for each 5 pounds I lose (my husband is not aware of this plan...yet). 

Just kidding, honey! 

The exciting part about this is that I've actually continued to keep myself motivated and go to the gym and GET RESULTS on my own!  I finished with my training program in early June and in the past few weeks, I've managed to lose another 4 pounds on my own.  I'm sorry - this is super exciting to me!

Unfortunately, I don't remember all the numbers from my final fit-test, but the number that was most important to me was body fat %.  I had only lost 1% and was down to 29%.  Still have quite a ways to go before I reach my realistic goal of 22%, but at least the number went down instead of up, right?

However, that was 4 pounds ago...sooo who knows!  I think I'm just going to pay my current gym to do a body fat assessment every couple of months to see where I am (they charge for it...lame).  But as long as clothes continue to fall off me and the scale continues to go down, I'll be a happy little bumble bee =)

Hope everyone had a great weekend!  I sure did (more on that later!!!).  Byeee!


  1. That's awesome! I want to see before and after pics! That is really so great, I'm really proud of you! Maybe you should send over a little motivation to me. After all my traveling I need to lose about 10lbs - starting tomorrow...

    Keep up the good work, I know you can do it!

  2. Way to go Nicole! I have gone backwards, I am starting to turn the ship back around tomorrow. The honeymoon and happily marriedness made me put back some of what I had lost for the wedding. Not a total backslide yet, but I want to stop it before it goes to far. Miss you!
