those of you who really know me, know that I LOVE going out of town. and by out of town.. i mean like out of state. and by out of state... i mean california. i LOVE LOVE LOVE CALIFORNIA! i bet its because thats my home-town (well i was born in san fran...) i dont think i could ever live there again but i LOVE visiting. it has the greatest things. DISNEYLAND (which if i could live inside there i totally would) six flags, beaches, yummy food...you catch my drift. and the best part is that you can actually RELAX there and not worry about the stresses of home life. when i was young and single or shoot even in high school days, i'd go there like 3-4 times a year ATLEAST. so the fact that i haven't been there since my honeymoon (...um...like 2 and a half years ago) is truly killing me a little bit everyday inside....we'll stop here and i'll get back to it.
i've been feeling a little bit chubby these days. the time has come where i need to lose weight. and fast..but the healthier way. i tried the HCg fun-ness and it made me sicker than a dog with nasty migraines and a horrible person. i tried healthe-trim and i lost 3 pounds in the 1st week and then nothing else the remainding 2 months (their promo is that you 'get high school skinny using this'....uhhhhhh...). i love to get out and go walking/jogging and i bought a fantastic jogger that i can hook up my i-pod to and has outward speakers so BIG D and i could rock out and we were using it and having a great time..and then he got croup a couple of times and then pneumonia. awesome.
so i made a deal with justin. when i lose 20 lbs i get to go on vacation. (and i guess i'll take the boys with me too). and by vacation... i mean sweet ol' cali. we dont have to do anything too special (we're going to disneyland w/ my entire family in october) but i want to go and relax and look good w/ my smokin' hot new body. and i told justin that if he loses 20 lbs by the same time i had, he gets a romantic evening and day with me and an overnighter w/out the little one (we haven't left him overnight yet). so these are FANTASTIC motives to get smaller AND more important, healthier.
i started a 7-day cleanse and im on the morning of day 6 and i've already lost 8 pounds. WOO-HOO! this cleanse is awesome because i didnt buy it over the counter, im not adding in "fat burning crap" that you really dont know whats in it. its just fresh fruits, veggies, whole grains and a lemon-water mixture (a little bit of lemon juice and maple syrup w/ 64 ounces of water). literally....its all stuff that i know exactly what it is. and THEN i bought some jillian michaels workout dvd's to kick my butt. so now i have a WONDERFUL jump start ( still with a couple more days/weigh-ins) to my GLORIOUS 20 pound marker. um....and vacation.
for the next 30 days....jillian michaels and i will have a date everyday (i'm trying her '30-day shred' video....yikes!) and to my sweet love affair CALIFORNIA-----i'll be there before you know it.
WISH ME LUCK!!!!
