Shake it for me

I mentioned in my "About me" section that I had some events along the way that I want to use as markers along my weight loss path. The first....Friday, August 24th Luke Bryan and Jason Aldean concert in Virginia Beach!! Oh hell yeah! Everyone that knows me knows that Luke Bryan is my baby daddy! I CAN'T let him seems like this! :) I'm going with a group of girls that are gorgeous and have fit and fabulous little bodies. Not to mention we'll be at the beach. Sounds like a recipe for disaster (for me) but LOTS of fun! So, I'm going! And I want to work my tail off between now and then to get down to 170 in time to go. So I'll stil be chunky, but not a complete fat ass! Now, I know what you're thinking...20 pounds in 42 days. Impossible?? I don't know!! But I'm going to strive for it! I know slow and steady wins the race...I'm not going to do anything drastic. I know a thin lifestyle takes time and dedication. But it doesn't hurt to push yourself. Plus, when you're heavy, the first 20 pounds are the easiest to lose. So, here's to hoping and here's to pushing!

Also, I got into bed at 10 last night, but scoured facebook for a little, so it wasn't till about 10:30 that I drifted off to sleep. BUT...I didn't hear my sweet little son till 6:30 this morning! That's 8 hours of uninterrupted sleep!!!!!! I can't tell you the last time I did that! Annnnnnd, my husband woke up right at the same time that Royce and I were getting ready to go for our morning walk so he joined us! Shaping up to be a great Saturday! :)

Oh, Luke Bryan!!! (now if that doesn't get you up and moving, dammit, I don't know what will!)


  1. I think it's great that you're starting a goal line! All the more efficient to help you stay on track! Glad your hubby got to join you on your walk! That concert at the beach sounds fun! :)

  2. Shake It!! so there is a goal and there is momentum! And you do have a plan!..
    Sleep - getting at least 7 hours.
    Movement - 2 walks a day/30 minutes each, tummy moves and the three reps of jumping jacks and push ups.
    Something to think about adding.... water intake - I have heard that drinking half your body weight in ounces is a good move to loosing those pounds.
    Ky you are shaping your plan - it's a living thing - you're figuring it out for you - you know what's good and you are figuring out what works for your life and how to incorporate it. YOU ROCK!

    1. good tip about the water, Tammie! i am a haus when it comes to drinking water! so that vital part is taken care of! thanks!!!!

  3. Awesome blog -- goal -- motivation! I don't have an excuse for the weight I've gained since HS... and it's time to stop the excuses. Keep up the great work -- and I'll report back to let you know whether I was successful in getting on the treadmill in the morning! Thanks for inviting me to share this journey with you.
