6 week at home crossfit workout

WOW! I didn't realize how long it has been since I documented my workout journey. TWO MONTHS! Luckily, it hasn't been that long since I have worked out. But, I must admit that I haven't been as consistent. Last week I started a weight loss competition with a handsome reward...$3,000.00...and I need to step up my game if I'm going to snatch that up! So I decided to hold myself extra accountable and document the journey over the next few months.

Today I started following an at home crossfit workout regiment the Lovely Sadie over at Simply Sadie Jane put together and is so graciously sharing. She is posting one week of workouts every Monday and just posted week 4 this morning. (Week 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6)  She has shown that with a lot of hard work and dedication a woman can reclaim or achieve a better body than before having children. Seriously, if you haven't read her blog go now and start!

Doing it for ME!!

The journey to lose weight started after the birth of my 4th and final child last August. I was bound and determined to rid myself of the 82 pounds I had accumulated over each of the four pregnancies. Why didn't I lose all the baby weight between each pregnancy you ask? Well, it's simple really...I had 4 babies in 5 years and 9 months. YIKES!!  I know! Crazy lady! But, I wanted my kiddos close in age, which sounded good at the time. They ended up being about two years give or take a few months from birth to birth. The nice thing, I was done quick. The bad thing, I totally wreaked havoc on my body. After each baby was born I would get within 10 lbs of that magical number(which increased each time buy 10 lbs), multiply that by 4 and there's 40 pounds. Plus, I would tack on about 50-60 pounds with each pregnancy.

With that said and done. Here I am 7 years and 7 months from the beginning of the first pregnancy and 4 beautiful children later putting to print for all the world to see in its body now, today, September 2, 2013.

Last week I did a detox cleanse courtesy of Which is the healthy eating and lifting program I decided to go with back in November.  (More on this program and Lacy later) Back to the detox. Well I felt so good after last week I want to do it again. I will admit, I didn't do very well on Saturday or Sunday. So, I want to do it again, to the T, all seven days.

I'm documenting it here for accountability purposes. So, here goes!
Day #1:
Left arm: 12"          Right arm: 12"
Left Leg: 23 1/2"      Right leg: 23"
Waist: 32"
Hips: 42 3/4"
Weight: 173.6 lbs. 

It hasn't been easy, I've totally fallen off the proverbial wagon more times then I care to count. But, one thing stays the same, I keep going! I keep re-committing and I will continue to do so until I am where I want to be. Where I feel sexy and strong and powerful!

I can already tell a huge difference in the way I feel, the way I wear my clothes. I am proud of the distance I have come on this journey to a healthier me and I use that as fuel to feed my drive. As of today I am down 34 pounds from August 1, 2012!

That four letter work that stops too many in their tracks. I detest this word and I want to be able to over come all my fears. But, since that can't happen all at once. I came up with a crazy idea to start this little blog and show myself to the world one crazy little fear at a time and to show you all the perfectly imperfect moments wife and mommyhood bring me.  Maybe no one will read it but me and maybe my Mom. But, that's ok, because I will write each post to have a record for myself of just how far I go past each little fear that may be in my way.

So, here I go....

Into a whole new world of living in the moment and enjoying each one...

Not letting fear take hold of me...

But, one step at a time, not overcome fear, but blast through it...
