Dusting this sucker off!

Well life has been great since I last posted in here. I now have two gorgeous little girls and am finally ready to get back into the swing of things with eating right and exercise.

For exercise you need the right clothes right LOL!

Look how cute this tank is:

And these pants:

And this pullover:

I mean talk about motivation to look your best when you have super cute clothes like the ones I've listed above. I'm hoping that I can win the contest at: so that I can win these pieces and have that additional boost in motivation!

And ya know I'm not one to hog the chances to win so please be sure to check out for how to win some clothes for yourself! Hope someone I know does. :)

8/15/09 Biggest Loser Season 8

Yikes it's been way to long since I've updated this thing. Life is good quite honestly I am still focused on my quest to live a healthy lifestyle. I'm not focusing as much on the weight loss as I was earlier in the year which is why I haven't updated but working out and eating healthy is still extremely important to me.

Anyways onto bigger and better things at the moment like Season 8 of the Biggest Loser!

I cannot tell you how excited I am to be watching this I am already in love with the contestants and their stories. I cannot wait to learn more about them.

First challenge is the last mile of the biggest loser marathon. The prize is immunity and choosing their partner for the season. I am so excited to see Daniel from Season 7 and that he's back!

The opening challenge was a little scary with Tracy. Girl you finished the race you totally rocked that race. She was medivacced out. :( She finished the race though which is what her goal was I am so proud of her for that.

I had a longer post but it didn't save :(

Anyway Alexandra got voted off.

Man it feels soooooooooo good to be back and to be focused. I did not realize how much I missed working out how much a part of it had become until I stopped. For the two months where I slacked off on working out I felt like I was missing something now I remember what it was. The rest of this weight is going to come off whether it likes it or not!

I am on day 6 today of no diet cokes I think I am at the I will survive point.
