oooo man! what an amazing workout! i'm a freakin ANIMAL!!! legs, shoulders, abs, and cardio today. i was dripping in sweat before i even did 45 min on the arc trainer.. i've really been enjoying training legs. makes me feel really determined and strong. it's funny how stepping out of your comfort zone can really bring changes. a year ago i would never have really trained legs like i do now. but i was thinking about something today while i was doing cardio.. and that was that you really don't have to be perfect in your nutrition and workouts to get results. and i think too many people, especially women, think that they have to be 100% perfect in order to see changes happen and it's really not true. let me tell you, i had twizzlers this week out of the vending machine at work TWICE this week, i had 2 mich ultras after work on friday night, and yesterday i went to a house party (given, it was my treat day but listen to this..) i had a slice of pizza, chips and dip, some pasta, rice, chicken wings, a generous piece of chocolate cake AND about 4 glasses of sangria. no joke. and i'm down a pound this week. i'm down to 143. AND this week was the week before my period, so i mean, i'm 3 lbs. away from my goal of 140 and i'm going to hit it this month, but you don't have to be perfect... i DO tend to eat clean, and i do look at calories when i decide to go for something or not, and i do hit the gym 4-6 days a week, but i just wanted to put it in to perspective for some of the people that read my blogs and think i must be a fanatic and never splurge.. we all do. you have to. and it's normal, you just can't let it become a habit. like anything, it's all in moderation. but anyway, i also wanted to tell you all that i interviewed on wednesday for a new position and i'm really REALLY hoping i get it.. and i thought i would've found out on friday, but they've left me in suspense through the weekend, so i'm hoping to receive good news either tomorrow or tuesday. something tells me it'll be tomorrow. i'm praying that i get a yes. i will also be very focused with my clean eating this week because i'm actually trying to hit 140 no later than june 18th. just a lil mini goal. i would like to hit it before the 15th, but i'd be happy if it were before the 18th. i do feel that it's possible even tho the closer you get to your ideal body weight, the harder you have to work to drop the fat. it's funny..your body will stubbornly try to hold on to it. i actually wore a pair of jeans yesterday that i haven't worn since summer of 2008, and my sweetheart was like "babe, your booty looks so good in those jeans.." little did he know that i hadn't fit in them since 2 years ago, but that made it so much better LOL sorry i'm rambling, like always, i just have a lot of energy right now and i figured i'd get a blog in before i get ready to leave the house for the day. but yea, so i love you all and hope you're all having a great month so far! keep workin hard!!!

much love,

    You should be so proud of yourself!! Have you ever thought about sharing your food tracker? I know it helps me to look at people like you who are succeeding to get food ideas. Just wondering!
