Fitness Extravaganza!

So, my apologies for the maddd delay in posting My fitness update.
As I stated last post I would be starting new....FITNESS!
I wrote that post from Colorado, and I didn't have my computer, pictures...and whats a fitness post without result photos....its SHIT! lol.
It took me a few to get them all to my computer from my Facebook and Instagram.
Most of my progress can be seen there.

To my best of my abilities, I will keep the photos in order. NO promises.
This will be a MASS photo update, due to the fact its 4 months worth of fitness progress pictures....since I hopped on the blog fit train epically late. Its judgeable. LOL.

So. Hello Fatty. Ok no im not a hippo....but I was unhappy. So...I fucking did something about it! 
I began my journey Feb 18th, 2013. Best decision of my life. 

One of my very first pictures post work out...Check out the chubby face. (:

I bought myself this watch to track my progress! I love knowing how much I'm burning! 
Clearly...the workout kicked my ass! 

Gym Sesh! I go hard, and never quit! From spin classes, to swimming, Cardio is a beautiful thing!

This watch completes my fitlife! Idk what fitlife was before it!

Getting my skinny on while on vacation. 
Seriously....I dont quit. Go has hard as possible, every time!

 And this my friends....was from today. 
June 19 (its 1am on the 20th now) 
 I put in 3.5 miles = my cool down. a total of around 4 miles. 
This was one of my best run, based on the fact I didnt stop, and didnt hurt, but felt AMAZING the entire run.

 And finally....dun dun dun......

Left: was 1 year ago
Right: is recent of course! 

One would say Im pretty much obsessed with my progress. 
Wouldn't you be too!

last summer...I weighed in at 247lbs. 

Today I weigh in at around 205lbs. 




My goal weight however is 170. 
Im not entirely sure I can get there, given I have a lot of muscle....
But thats what I am aiming for. 
As soon as I hit that, It'll be all about maintaining, toning and tightening. 

Im excited for my future. 
I hope to inspire folks. 
Im not a magnificent weight loss story....
however, I had a story...
I've shared it, 
And I will continue to do so. 

Never give up, Never quit. 
You're just one work out away from being happy.

Starting over...Completely Fresh.


So I haven't blogged in months!!! Did you miss me?

Of course you did!!! Deep down inside you really really did. (:

Anyhow.....I'm changing my blog around.

I dedicated my life to health and fitness about 4 months ago.
Its been one hell of a journey. I've struggled with my confidence, weight and looks for around 3 years now. At least...that's when I noticed I had fattened up.
Prior to my weight gain, I was actually incredibly thin. Maxing out at about 5'10 180 lbs of muscle.  I was fit, and damn sexy butt ass naked.

So....I decided I would take you allll the way the beginning, to update you on how i got to where i am now.

Heres my story. Ill try to keep it as short as possible.

All my life I've been very athletic. Since age 6. Sports all year long, every year, through high school. I was very physically fit and thin. During my junior year, at age 17  i tore my acl playing high school soccer. DEVASTATING!!! It was truely horrific. Life as I knew it was over. 6 month recovery period. No physical activity....lots of junk food. I gained 40 lbs. That put me at around 180lbs. As a junior that sucked balls. Eventually I recovered and was back for my senior year of soccer. I was never 100% again. I was babied that year. ..never allowed to play to my full potential, but even so, a jr college coach wanted me....but my love for soccer died my senior year. At 18 that was the first year of no sports. It was harder then I that spring (freshmen year), I trained for my soph yr of college....hurt my knee again....had surgery....recovered in 2 months. Also....during this boyfriend of 3 years dumped me. Really heart broken, and crippled....I pushed myself harder then I ever had. I didn't eat, I just ran. And ran.....and ran. I then tried out for the team the summer prior to sophomore year....because I was injured still and couldn't have physical contact....I didn't make it. It broke my heart. ...but I understood. That was the end of my soccer career. So...I decided id just run....A LOT. From age 19 to 23 I ran almost everyday. Stairs at the stadium.....miles and miles. I was confident, in shape, and hot. Eventually I met my current husband online. We had a lot of drama....running began to stop. I began to gain weight again. I wasn't happy with that...but I also wasn't driven anymore. I stopped caring about my looks, but on the inside I was 24  decided to stop with the self pitying....and train again....BAM! PREGNANT. Fitness was put on hold again....and I gained....and gained....and gained weight. In reality....I only gained 22 lbs. Lol. But I went from 225 to 247 post baby. I hated being being 247 made me a whale when I wanted to weigh 170. I said my entire pregnancy, as soon as I got released, I was going crazy with fitness....6 weeks post baby...I tried one sit up cried and quit. Never tried again....not until 6 months post baby....I tried....but it was too much for I quit. Life kept going....I joined my husband in Colorado Oct of last year. At that point i was 230ish lbs. But i still hated how I looked. I was miserable, depressed, and felt hideous, and untouchable....that along with other things tore us apart. So in dec...I went back to cali to live with my mom and start new. I got a job, and purchased a gym memebership....that's where my journey begins.

In following posts....I will post past experiences until I'm current. Prepare yourselves. My journey has only begun.
