Little FAT Me

I work full time and I barely have time to breathe. In 2005 hurricane Katrina rearranged my life, since then I have gained roughly 80-90 pounds. I believe that it started in depression and became an addiction. I have started and failed many diets and then decided that MAYBE if I combine diet and exercise with blogging and shopping I might be able to find success. This is the story of 2010 and my struggle to rise above addiction, pain, depression and fat.

December Challenge: Week 2; # 2 & 3

So Friday I danced and hooped JUST enough to call it number two. Saturday I went to Zumba for the first time in SO long. It was just as beautiful as I always thought it was!

13 Dec 11

Right shin, two inches below the knee. Slight bump, quite a bit of pain. Erythema nodosum. My anxiety is up, I am sad and it hurts to move. It is a different hurt than the fibro. Fibro just makes it hard, like thick fog and a pull, a hurt that just kind of throbs in the back. Erythema – hurts, like broken bones. This is actually how it all started. A horrible erythema nodosum outbreak that resolved after MORE THAN A YEAR and left me with Fibromyalgia.
I am scared.

The chair.

I have this whole thing in my head so clear. All my odds and ends on shelves behind me. All my books and things all around me. So many pieces and the PERFECT chair! Thing is – I found the perfect chair and the perfect fabric – separately! I want this to be my FAV chair ever, I am not sure this would be comfy enough!

I have a little corner where I usually film anyway, so we are just going to let me custom it up! I’m looking into more shelving and an alternate chair!

I didn't do it.

But I am not GIVING UP. I am done with the goal. I don’t want the treadmill, I have progressed too far for this goal!

The big plan!

I think that this goal will actually change! I have the same as a New Years resolution – I think to keep better track, and therefore make sure it happens – I will break it down month to month – this will become January. Once the year is over I get to check the BIG box!

December Challenge: Week 1; # 3

See, this is where I REALLY wish I could change something about! I LOVE THIS SITE – really, I feel like this site (along with, Weight Watchers, Zumba, running & blogging) changed my life. As I use it more, I find that my goals overlap and I wish there was a way to “double tag” entries to go to two or more goals. Internet gods – get on that.
Anywho, I have been in a funk to say the least. Today I finally got back outdoors. It was SO cold at first, but I warmed up. I hooped and Zumba-ed. Thing is, I love to run – solitary, transcending, amazing, purifying – and I love to Zumba – fun, funny, camaraderie. What I LOVE more that those things is when I get a good work out and have my kids have fun outdoors, moving and laughing.
That is why today was awesome, ‘cause the kids were outside riding bikes and scooters and just having a great time!

I didn’t want to go. I went.
I went to the gym and I elliptical-ed my booty into a good sweat. Thank you so much Zumba play list! Contest!
