The me I want to be...

Some days I feel like a Russian nesting doll...

Yeah, I'm attractive and exotic looking...but I'm dying to become the smaller doll that I know is under this plus-sized doll! lol

I want to feel better in my clothes, I want more energy and I want my confidence back! I haven't been plus-sized all of my life, so I know exactly what I have to look forward to when I get back to skinny me; however, I frickin' LOVE food! It's quite the catch 22... (-_-) If only I could be skinny and eat what I want again...

But anyways...

I'm working on portion control at the moment, going to start doing Zumba again and give kickboxing a try...and **drum roll please** I want to run a 5k!

*sigh* I have always been a sh***y runner...I was the girl that walked and talked with her friends during the mile in high school...but for some reason I've had this urge to get out there and run, so I'm going to do it! I'm starting on Monday and will begin my search for a local 5k to participate in :)

The 5k is my main goal for's not much I guess...but it will mean so much to me and my weight-loss struggle if (I mean WHEN) I cross that finish line.

Wish me luck!

Thanks for reading! 


  1. Good luck. Having a goal that will also help with weightless is a great idea.

  2. Good luck! I just started running over the summer. It helps me SO much to run with friends!! We just talk (while huffing, hah!) and it makes the time go by so much faster..which means you run further without noticing!! I use the Run Keeper app and love it!

  3. Wanted to share that I know EXACTLY how you feel. Setting goals and pushing yourself everyday is a great way to achieve anything you put your mind to. I used to always find it easier to work out with friends but sometimes it was the worst idea because we'd work out together (mostly talking while walking) then drive to a restaurant rewarding ourselves for working out! I guess it was more for motivation. Now that I have a 2 month old, I need to kick my butt into gear and find something to motivate me to get into shape.

    Good luck to you...
