I've considered so many other areas of my life that could use this devotion. This is my goal deadline. I will have to purge all of my unused products and devote my time an energy to the betterment of another area of my life. MBL is my ultimate goal, but I have no idea where my hair will be come December 31, 2013. That will be five years of being hair obsessed.

Well, this is me. This was actually very hard to look at. For while I have been an hourglass and I could feel the pudge coming but I just kept being complacent. I exercise off/on, never consistently. I have a bad habit of seeing results then treating myself and end up cheating myself out of all of my hard work. Am I addicted to junk food? No. I eat pretty healthy except that dinner prep/ fast food at dinner time is my weakness. I am not a great cook so I always end up splurging on dinner. I have a hard time turning down a Whopper and onion rings. Believe it or not, I drink plenty of water. I do not eat sweets or drink soda. I am often inspired by so many weight loss journeys, but I can't seem to stay motivated.
My lightest weight was 145 in high school," Betty Boop fine, Jessica Rabbit fine". I have never been obese. After my first child I went up to 165, still hourglass, thicker thighs, but stomach was still flat. After my second child I began to teeter over the thick to plump line at 175-180 fluctuating. I never had to exercise until after my second child and my c-section. It's amazing what difference a few lbs makes on my frame. Anyway I just want to become consistent in my healthy lifestyle. If I could give it a percentage I would say that I am about 40% committed at this point.
What I'll Use:
Jillian Michaels 30 Day Shred
Denise Austin Get Fit Fast
Zumba Exhilarate Set (mainly Exhilarate and Activate DVDs)
3 & 5lb weights
145 lbs- I don't want to be thin, toned
Complete J. Micheals 30 Day Shred, workout M-F, rest weekends
Decrease amount of processed food I eat daily
Resume preparing work meals and snacks a day ahead
HAIR- LENGTH!!!Continue to keep my hair and regimen healthy and simple so my hair will flourish. I will PS at least 3 days a week. I'm figuring out a rollerset that will require little time so no fuss when it's time to ps.
