Before and After Pics

Well, the commercial has been out in select markets, but I have yet to see it yet.  I’ve heard from friends that it ROCKS, so I’ll have to take their word on it.  🙂

BUT…and that is a HUGE but…I just saw some of my photo shoot pictures on the website…!  Yay!

Here’s are “Before and After” Pictures:

Insanity Day 10 & 11

Day 10 & 11 – completed!  And what a workout it was…I literally workout myself right out of my sneakers!  I busted the inside & outside of each sneaker along the seams, on BOTH shoes!  I think Shaun T. would be proud 🙂

Although I am a bit sad that I can’t workout again until next weekend (1 – because I’m on a roll, and 2-because it’s so hard to get back into it when you take more than a few days off between workouts), I guess it is a good thing so I can go find myself a new pair of shoes! As my coach said, I guess I have made it to the “workout addiction” stage.  Hooray!


20 reasons to cut sugar out

20 reasons to cut sugar out.

If they can do it – I can do it!

I’m so close to reaching my goals…I can see the light flickering at the end of the tunnel!  And for the most part – I keep my motivation up with the sheer knowledge that I have done this once before and I can do it again.  But every now and again, there’s that moment (or day) where it feels like I’m stuck and my goals may just be out of reach.

Well – for all of you out there like me – take a look at this YouTube video and you will get your inspiration and motivation back instantaneously!


What a week…what a year!

I can’t believe that my son just turned ONE years old!!!  It seems like only yesterday he was all bundled up in the hospital blankets like a little baby burrito…and now he’s officially a toddler.  Wow!  This year truly has flown by, and although it hasn’t been easy, it has DEFINITELY been worth it!  Worth every sleepless night and every extra pound of weight for each and every second that I get to spend with him and see his beautiful, innocent, and perfect  smile.

As you know – along with Maxx turning one, also comes his first birthday party!!!  And of course, I wanted to make everything just right…including his cake(s) (with the help of Grandma) ;). And what fun is making cake if you don’t taste it along the way! (hehe)

I have to say, I absolutely did indulge and throw caution to the wind and was a little timid to weigh in this morning.  But, to my surprise (and delight), the scale didn’t budge an ounce!  Yay!  So, no weight loss this week – but a whirlwind of a year all wrapped up into a perfect first birthday party that was absolutely worth a week of no weight-loss but happiness, nonetheless!  🙂

eDiets to the rescue!

These past few weeks have been some of the busiest weeks of the year for me.  My marina, Bahia Mar Yachting Center, just hosted the biggest boat show in the world for it’s 52nd year and now that they have packed up and moved out – we are now open for business!!!  Of course, the opening of season also equals longer business hours – which can reek havoc on the stability of my day-to-day routine.  But I have to give eDiets so much credit because I couldn’t have made it without their meal delivery plan.  I had all my meals and snacks right at my fingertips and because of that, I never crumbled and I never fell out of my routine.  In the past, I would have surely skipped meals entirely just because I didn’t have the time to get them together.  But with eDiets – they are already good to go (and I know I’ll love them because I picked them out online at!

I really want to thank eDiets for their amazing product.  As a busy mom working a full-time job, you have truly saved me (and my waistline)!  😉  Although I haven’t had any time to fit in a ton of exercise these past few weeks, I have still managed to lose 2 lbs. this week and kept up my energy to stay strong at work.   Thanks again eDiets.  I will always be a fan!

Stop and smell the roses!

It’s nearing the end of September and in 1.5 months – it will have been a YEAR since baby Maxximus  was born.  🙂

I can’t believe how fast the time has gone by!  It seems like just yesterday, I had this tiny tiny person in my overly plump arms!

Well, I am proud to say, that I am down to 171 lbs – only one pound away from where I started this pregnancy journey.  Hooray!!  I finally made it.

I am, of course, going to continue to my original goal of 155lbs…but you have to stop and smell the roses (and give yourself a pat on the back from time to time…and now is a pretty damn good time)!

I seem to have picked up a new favorite workout along the way……Yoga!  I had tried yoga quite a long time ago, when I was overweight, and we did not get along so well.  I don’t know what has changed, besides the fact that I can see my feet again now (lol), but I am really enjoying this new form of exercise.  I feel like I’m building strength, improving my posture, and grounding myself – washing away all the daily stresses that tend to build up inside of me.  It’s my meditation and I really am loving it.  I’ve just recently started, but I’ll keep you updated on the long-term results, as I feel that they could be very promising.

Until next time…Ciao!ps – More pics being added to the Photo Journal now!
