I Can Bench 110 lbs!

UPDATE! I am now benching 110 lbs!! BOOYAH!

So I stepped on the scale yesterday and I lost another pound. That brings me to 175.5. My first goal is to get below 170! I feel like it’s taking a freaking eternity to get through the 170s and I’m stuck in limbo, but I’ll get there eventually. It’s so frustrating to not see faster progress but I have to remember that it took 8 years for me to get this heavy so I’m not going to become a 130lb. goddess overnight!

I have come to the conclusion that the only way I’m going to lose weight faster is if I change the way I eat. I need to eat more fruits and veggies, eat healthy snacks throughout the day and eat healthy lunches and dinners. I think right now I eat okay if I was to maintain my weight. I don’t stuff my face with fatty goodness like burgers, fries, burritos, chips (all the yummy foods) but I do need to eat more healthy. I indulge every now and then. Maybe once every 2 or 3 weeks? But I definitely don’t go crazy with food. I literally can’t eat like that anymore!

Time to start cooking and pre-making meals! Yay… (can you feel my sarcasm?)

Egg “Cupcakes” Recipe

I made some egg cupcakes last night! It’s so easy.

  1. Scramble some eggs. The number of eggs equal to the number of cupcakes you want to make. I made 6.
  2. Pour eggs into a well greased cupcake pan. No need for the cupcake liners, just pour directly into the pan.
  3. Add your ingredients. I did baby spinach, tomato, and cheddar cheese. I may add sausage next time! Push/mix it into the egg so it’s not just sitting on top.
  4. Bake at 350° for 20-25 minutes!  Don’t be alarmed if the cupcakes come out of the oven super puffed and high! They WILL shrink as they cool 🙂 I wasn’t told this when I tried this recipe and kind of freaked out because I thought they came out wrong.
  5. Eat!

Super healthy and easy to make! Easy for a grab and go breakfast in the morning! Warm in the microwave for about 30 seconds 🙂 I will be making this again!

3 Day Weekend!

So this weekend I haven’t worked out at all. You want to know what I’ve been doing? Sleeping in, lounging with my boyfriend, and playing video games (specifically Batman Arkham City on my PS3 – LOVE THIS GAME). I had Chinese food and Kool-aid this weekend but I will be back on my grind on Tuesday. My back is still in a little bit of pain… I wonder if my posture has anything to do with it?

Well, I say there is NOTHING wrong with relaxing and letting go for a day or two, as long as you go back to your routine! 🙂
