Come visit me at Girly Bitz. It's my other interweb hangout.

The BLitz is back!

Omg.  I have been slacking on the BLitz. 

Between wedding planning, kitchen remodeling, dog drama and everything else that's been going on, BLitzing has really taken a back seat. 

Which has really taken a toll on my back seat, if you know what I mean!  Yeah, that was a lame reference to my fat ass.  It's gotten fatter.  Shocking! 

I actually had to go to the Goodwill to get new jeans because none of my jeans (or other clothes) fit very well anymore.  I pretty much gained back everything I had lost and maybe a little more.  I haven't been taking care of myself at all.  I've completely let the stress of my life go right into my face, in the form of bacon cheeseburgers, ice cream, cake, beer, etc. 

Calories?  I haven't counted a calorie since September...of last year. 

So, I'm back.  I'm trying to get my fat ass back on track, once again.  I know that posting my eats and chatting with fellow Fat Fighters was very helpful, so I figured I'd come back and start BLitzing again.

I'm going to be back later today to post my eats and tell you what my Fat Fighting plan is.  I'm also going to get back into the blogging community that was such an inspiration to me in the past. 

So, is anyone still out there?  How is your journey going? 

checking in.

So, I've been getting back into the calorie counting routine. It's hard, but I'm trying. I'm using My Fitness Pal as a tool and I like it so far.

I managed to stay under my calorie limit for two days in a row, but went over by 2 calories yesterday. That's not bad, though. No real exercise yet, although I have walked the dog for three days in a row.

Walking the dog is not as fun as it used to be now that we have the new puppy. He hasn't really learned his leash manners yet, so it's not an enjoyable walk. We'll get there, but right now it's not something I look forward to.

The weather is gorgeous here and I'm hoping that brings on some much needed motivation.

How are you doing with your Fat Fight?


Holy hell, do I feel fat.

It is seriously time to get on track. I'm at 195.4 right now. I haven't done any real exercise in months. I haven't planned a healthy meal in months. It's pitiful.

No worries, though. I'm feeling that motivation again. That skinny bitch inside is itching to come out again and she's making me want to change.

MB and I have decided to count calories again. It worked really well for us before the wedding. We've also decided to commit to some sort of cardio at least 3 times a week. It's so much easier to do this when you have someone by your side.

I love my hubby!

So, I'm setting a calorie goal of 1200 per day. I'm also setting an exercise goal of doing Slim in 6 three times a week. It's a really good workout for me and it helps motivate me because I see results pretty quickly. I'm also going to try to walk with the pup every day, as my work schedule allows.

I'm feeling pretty good about this whole Fat Fight again. :)

Remember me?

Holy fatness! I'm back!

In case you haven't noticed, I've been absent for the past few months. Of course, I did have a lot going on in my life.

MB and I got hitched on October 2. Yay! It was an amazing time filled with family, friends and lots of fun. Lots of stress also, but nothing we couldn't handle. MB and I both worked hard to lose weight so we could feel good on our wedding day. I lost 14.6 pounds and he lost too. He looked very handsome in his kilt and I was able to keep my backfat to a respectable minimum.

We honeymooned in Gettysburg, PA where we ate delicious food every night. We indulged in wedding cake (there was a lot left over), good beer and whatever fine fare the local restaurants had to offer. Not one single calorie was counted. We did stay pretty active, though. There was biking, hiking and plenty of walking around town.

While we were honeymooning, the in-laws took over our house and remodeled our kitchen for us. They are absolutely wonderful and so generous for giving us such an awesome gift. We heart them big time.

Of course, things got a little sidetracked, as home repairs often do. We returned from the honeymoon to find the new kitchen countertop laid out across the sofa. The contents of our kitchen were spewed throughout the house, along with the in-laws' belongings. The in-laws' 3 dogs and all of their belongings were also spewed throughout the house.

It took awhile for us to get things put back together and for us to be able to get our kitchen into working order again. Oh, yeah. Did I mention that I also brought a puppy home in the midst of all this chaos? And, we got a roomate?

Yeah. All of that happened. Sometimes we are not smart people who plan things well. What can I say.

How the heck does this relate to my waistline? Well, all of my good intentions and good eating habits went right out the window when faced with all of this chaos. My coping skills were nonexistent, resulting in a lot of binges that I'm not proud of.

MB was right there with me. We ate out almost every meal. We said goodbye to exercise as we were just trying to get through the day without killing each other.

Yeah. Stress.

Now that the air has cleared a little bit and we have regained our sanity, I'm desperate to get back on track. I hate that I've gained back 10 pounds. My jeans are getting tight. I'm getting a belly that makes people ask me if/when I'm getting pregnant. People like to harass newlyweds with such questions.


So, I'm ready for some changes. MB and I are back to counting calories and using GNC's Total Lean shakes. We started hiking at the local trails again. We even set up a pantry in our house and stocked up on all the foods we need. No more eating out - except maybe once a week. We like eating out and don't want to completely deprive ourselves.

I know I can do it. I did it already. I just hope you will still be there with me. My fat ass could definitely use a little support.
