30 Days (Day 9)

Day 09- Something that you’re proud of in the past few days

I am most proud of myself! I can’t believe that at age 30 I am finally going to finish what I started years ago. Finish my edjumacation!! I offically start on Saturday. I decided to totally change my career and I look forward to this change. I loved my working years don’t get me wrong, but corporate America, life in a cubicle just wasn’t for me..As Mark Wahlberg says.. “I’m a peacock,You’ve gotta let me FLY!”

Day 08- Short term goals for this month and why

One of my short term goals for this month loose 10lbs..just 10. I am trying to take it 1 pound at a time. One day at a time. I guess the why, well I hope loosing some more weight and being under 200 will help my fertility, I'll try anything for a little mike-mike.

30 Days (Day 7)

Day 07- A picture of someone/something that has the biggest impact on you

Currently it’s my husband! My life has changed since meeting him. I love going on every “adventure” life throws at us. (As of is throwing way too much I think lol) I’m proud of all his achievements and envy is drive for self-improvement. He obtained his Master by the time he was 26, and has a plethora of certifications that further his career. I can’t imagine my life without him and look forward to our days to come…

30 Days (Day 6)

Day 06- Favorite superhero and why

I think my favorite would be Superman.. and the following quote from Kill Bill pretty much sums up why Superman is da man… lol
“staple of the superhero mythology is, there's the superhero and there's the alter ego. Batman is actually Bruce Wayne, Spider-Man is actually Peter Parker. When that character wakes up in the morning, he's Peter Parker. He has to put on a costume to become Spider-Man. And it is in that characteristic Superman stands alone. Superman didn't become Superman. Superman was born Superman. When Superman wakes up in the morning, he's Superman. His alter ego is Clark Kent. His outfit with the big red "S", that's the blanket he was wrapped in as a baby when the Kents found him. Those are his clothes. What Kent wears - the glasses, the business suit - that's the costume. That's the costume Superman wears to blend in with us. Clark Kent is how Superman views us. And what are the characteristics of Clark Kent. He's weak... he's unsure of himself... he's a coward. Clark Kent is Superman's critique on the whole human race.”

Seriously I was drinking these DAILY!!

I offically cut down to 1 a far


Fears realized..

This isn’t an easy subject for me to write about. I’m sure it wouldn’t be an easy topic for anyone really. Well after about a year of trying we haven’t added to our family a non-fur addition. On my 30th birthday I came to terms that maybe something needs to be investigated. Went to my doctor and had some test done and she recommended I seek out a fertility specialist. I was in my car and in utter shock. I mean, I guess I assume something was wrong but I didn’t think I’d need professional intervention. So I made an appt with the specialist, and I supposed we shall see what lies ahead for us. I really want a child, I want to be a mommy, and I know my husband would be a great daddy. (I mean just look at our amazing furbabies! Lol)
We move into our new place end of month, and I start school next week.

And I decided I needed a I chopped off and darkened my hair..

Dear Fall bring us lost of luck! :) We sure do need it..

Continuity gives us roots; change gives us branches, letting us stretch and grow and reach new heights...

I haven’t blogged in like forever..what’s even worse I haven’t read any blogs in like forever! I’m out of the loop completely! I guess my life has done a 180 since I last blogged…

I’ll try and catch up as best as I can. GA did not work out for the hubs & I as much as it pained me to pay to move back I know it was for the best. Hubs wasn’t truly happy there and lack of work didn’t help the situation either. We originally planned to visit 4thof July weekend and before we left he looked at the job market in NY area and applied to a position I found for him. 2 days in NY he got the interview and a couple days after that got the job! His new position excited me! He works for thee crafty maven herself! Yeah I know, my hubs gets to see her craft room and I just drool with envy! SO with job found we had to pack up our apt in GA and move it to a storage place till we decide where to live. I moved back in a weekend..flew down on a Saturday drove back up in a U-Haul Sunday night. I can’t believe we accomplished this..just me, hubs and my brave step-brother.
Then we dealt with the issue, buy vs rent. We wanted to buy, it’s a buyers market now right? Lol Well we didn’t like anything that we currently could afford, and I didn’t want to push back me going to school. So I called my realtor and asked her to find us a rental instead. Just like our apt in Lodi, didn’t take much looking. She said she knows of a perfect place, not even on the market yet. We went and of course I fell in love. It’s an old Victorian home converted into a 2 family home. We get the 1st floor, it has French doors everywhere, open floor plan and office space and of course yard for my pups. We move in September…a ways away but this place is worth the wait.

The current tenants daughter..she does not
come with the apt I already asked lol

The landlord is a dream much like our last one…and he is into photography. Can not get any better!

I’m excited for our new adventures to come in the new place..

So that’s the homefront….
Now onto me my personal goals..I didn’t quite make it to 210 :/ I was 9lbs shy away on my 30th Birthday. But I can’t believe I’m the lowest weight I’ve ever been in my adult life so hooray for that! I’m also changing careers completely! I’ve always had a pull towards medical field..but I was comfy in accounting duties and was paid well for someone who didn’t have a college degree. But being unemployed for a year really puts things into prospective, I absolutely hated what I did..I went to just earn money. I refused to go back to that. So with my hubs support, I’m going back to school for nursing. Well I want to, it is apparently a very competitive field and getting into a nursing program in NJ is extremely competitive. I’m taking all prerequisite classes this fall and spring so when the program starts next fall I can focus solely on those courses.
So in a long nutshell that is what is happening…many changes made and many more to come... ;)

30 by 30 {week 11}

Today's Weight: 222.4 {-6}

So close to my goals, I have never been more elated! I'm so close to the teens!! I know 6lbs is a lot for 1 week, but my husband decided to join me in the low carb diet so we have been very supportive of each other. It really helps to stick to our goals. Hubby has done remarkably well, he's down almost 10lbs I believe, his official weigh-ins are Mondays. Also I've been kicking butt in my Wii games! Along with exercise every other day.

I'm proud of my accomplishments thus far, so much so, my friend posted pictures of me yesterday that I didn't preapprove and I didn't mind any at all. Usually I just cringe and immediately text and say "delete"! But I was OK with them, finally I'm starting to be OK with my own body. It's a weird feeling..

30 by 30 {week 10}

Today's Weight: 228.4 {-1.4}

Woohoo!! I'm happy with that loss, I didn't exercise much as I would have liked. However, I did keep my calories around 1300 or less. Its a holiday weekend, so I'm going to not count calories today, just for today! I'm going to see SATC 2 with my friend then BBQ later. I'm making empanadas, how can I not indulge in that? lol

30 by 30 {week 9}

Todays Weight: 229.8 thats a total lose of 11lbs..gone for good!

Hello 220’s fancy meeting you here! I cannot believe I am in 220’s! Like 229 is a number I would have never thought I’d see. I guess when you over 300lbs 229 is something you deem as unattainable. But I did it, it may have taken me longer than I would have wanted but I’m here. I’ve had some very trying and stressful weeks, and I’m sure more ahead. I just cannot lose sight of what my goal get fit.
So with 2 months and a couple of weeks to go I am 19lbs closer to my goal! I now realize I have to step up my game..I’ve only lost 11lbs in 2 months. I need 19 in the same amount of time. However, slow and steady wins the race…right?

Dear Me,

Please focus and get back on Track!


Me :)

I've been bad, totally flew off the wagon all last week and this weekend. I kinda did not want to bother getting on the scale for fear that my so close I can taste it 220's where snatched away LOL So I decided, Monday I will start fresh, clean slate. Yeah, that was yesterday and I started off well and didn't end well. I know I'm in a depression funk, I feel it, I see it..I'm trying my best to snap out of it. I'm admitting it so I guess I'm on the road to coming back..right? I woke up this morning feeling so morning I mean almost 12pm. When I replayed my day Monday I was like..serious Erica WTF is wrong with you! I literally woke up and parked in on the couch all day, even napped here and there. Nothing like feeling like a slub to make you refocus!

My C25K has been put on hold, my knees have been bothering me. I'm afraid of hurting myself cause we don't have insurance yet, so I'm taking it easy with the running. Today I focused on strength training. I'm starting to see some definition under the flab, so I'll focus on toning whatever is hiding underneath. It's quite exciting! I was so shocked when I was cleaning my face the other day I noticed a neck and collar bones. I did not know I had them..never saw them before.

Neck bones is the new motivation! LOL
