Day 23... 17 left and counting!

Howdy y'all!

I made a grocery run today mainly to look for my black bean burgers, but they were still not stocked. Maybe someone is buying them all as soon as they hit the freezer! Any-who... I ended up getting some veggie crumbles instead. Maybe I'll make myself a little taco salad tomorrow without the cheese, sour cream, guacamole, or taco shell!

While looking in the mirror this morning I could see that I've lost weight, but one thing that bugs me is my legs seem to be shrinking faster than any other part of my body. What's the deal with that?? Oh-well, I'll take what I can get I guess! I'm still doing the 30-Day shred along with some other strength training to ensure that I at least tone a little bit because I don't want one of those stomachs that I have to tuck into my pants like a shirt!!!

One negative to a floor exercise I'd been doing is I think I might have bruised my tail bone, because it's been hurting for about 3 days now. I'm going to call tomorrow and try to get it checked out because it's SUPER UNCOMFORTABLE! Plus, that would be a very unpleasant 22 hour drive back to VA if it really is bruised... I'm always getting hurt doing something simple. :( 

Today I finally gave away a pair of size 14 jeans I purchased from American Eagle my freshman year of college (about 9 years ago). I was wearing a 13 at that time so I figured they would fit, they didn't and I never returned them thinking I would lose the weight. HAHA, we see I didn't and I just couldn't let them go all of these years... Well, they are gone now and I know once I get back down that American Eagle will have other jeans that I like.


  1. umm you should have kept those jeans. youll be back in them before you know it! would you stop hurting yourself?!?!?! haha @ not wanting a stomach that you have to tuck in your pants like a shirt! haha havent heard that before. 17 (well 16) more days! you can do it!!!!

  2. I'm going to finish strong, no cheating! I know you've seen people that have lost lots of weigh super fast but do no strength training... Their skin ends up super soft, dough-like, and just hangs! I've been trying to avoid that and have done a good job of incorporating strength in everyday so far. Oh and it was time for me to let those jeans go, I would've had to lose another 30 or so pounds to fit into them... maybe! My 28 year old body if it was at 215 would never be the same as my 19 year old body at 215! lol things have shifted :(
