Data recorded...

So we're weighed and measured and ready to go in a couple days. I'm off to Canada early tomorrow morning and will be travelling for 36 hours. Assuming everything is running to schedule.
I'm not looking forward to airline and airport food. Blah. Even though there may be healthy choices, it will be difficult to do it on the road... or air... like that.
I compared my measurements to those I got done when I first got here, and I'm not impressed. Two different people measured, so it's not spot on, but still. I FEEL the difference... I'm still down about 6 dress sizes in the bottom, 4 in the top from when I first got here. We've both sent memos to our boobs to stay. Lets hope the memos get received this time.

Well this was just a short update. I'm will blog more once I've arrived up in the Great White North.... hoping it's not so white while I'm there.

Motivation....Where for art thou?!

So this little wager should prove interesting...I put this wager on the table because I needed some motivation to get back on the horse.Im studying to Become a gym instructor and while my heart is there...Well the body is lacking. And while I have gained some of my hard lost weight back, I have no desire for it to stick around. (well except on my boobs..they look great!!) So I wagered that we have a little friendly competition.

So it will be 12 weeks of slogging it out at the gym and Eating well. Because there is NO WAY in hell you will catch me wearing purple and yellow. Anyone who knows me knows that this is my most despised colour combination for ANYTHING! And Well I REALLLLLLLLY want to see Sa wear a Pink dress! Haha!

She will look soo pretty! * hides *

There will be some changes...I plan to switch Gyms. I need a more convenient place to work out. And I will be getting my butt moving where ever possible. Sa has been Whining...I mean "pointing out" that she thinks that Im at an advantage...She says I have no Halloween or thanksgiving to worry about...Um hello...I love to cook. I can very well become my own worst Enemy! In fact lately I have been! Eeep. So you will not only hear about our rants and ravings..I plan to post up any healthy Inspired food recipes that I come up with Along the way...I DID say I love to cook!!  

Hold on..we are in for a interesting ride!!!

What did I agree to?!

Alright, so unfortunately, we've both gained a bit of weight (Damn you Easter and your yummy treats!) since the summer. I hadn't quite gotten to my goal weight, but I will this time. Maybe not in the 12 weeks, but I will.
A few things to consider about this little wager. First off, me not liking pink, is very much an understatement. Some of you may think that it's not that big a deal, but if you know me, you know I DON'T WEAR PINK, or dresses usually.
I feel (I'm not complaining just pointing out a few factors) that I'm at a bit of a disadvantage. I will miss 3 days traveling, then more days adjusting to my new time zone. I wont have a gym to go to right off. Just me, the pavement (I'm not a big runner) and a 20 year old treadmill, which probably hasn't been used in 19 years. My Mom loves to make desert. And I love to eat it, so my will power will have to be at it's highest.... on that note as well, I will have Halloween AND Thanksgiving to get through (Which Melanie will not). All those tempting little tiny snack sized chocolates and comfort food.
So, this being noted, I'm going to have to work my butt off even harder. Guess I'm going to turn into a runner... if my knees will allow it, until I can find a job and gym that doesn't require contracts.
At least I'm being given a couple of days to stop swelling and for my body to adjust again after getting back home.
Our weigh in will be Monday morning, along with measurements, which even now I'll be interested in comparing to when I first got here.
