The Western Country Club - Midlothian TX

Joel and I decided to take some country western dance lessons last weekend. What a fun place! This is where the movie Pure Country was filed...and I LOVED that movie:-) So that made is cool too!

The dance lessons were fun. We have a lot to learn...but now we have a cool place to practice. They have BBQ's every 1st and 3rd Sat of the month too....and the place is family friendly...and BYOB. It was a very cool crowd of all ages! Really enjoyed it and look forward to going back and doing some more dancing!
If your ever in the area and looking for a fun chill evening...check this place out!!!

Day 5-7 of cleanse

I didn't end up doing so well on the whole cleanse thing. I tried...and dropped 6 pounds...but I know I would have been MUCH more successful if I had stuck with it. It's all good! maybe I will try again some other time. The last few days for me were really touch...and I just kind of gave up:-( Better luck next time!

Day 4 of the cleanse

I totally messed today up. First of all...I thought it was a fruit and veggie that's what I brought to work. It wasn't. Today I was supposed to eat a bunch of bananas and milk. I ended up eating the fruits and veggies during the day...but cracked and had chinese food for supper. That was BAD:-( I thought this cleanse thing would be easy. Boy was a wrong!

Day 3 of cleanse

Today was ok...I could eat all the fruit and veggies I want...and that's exactly what I did! Dinner is still the hardest part for me:-) I cheated a little...but it's ok. NOT the end of the world! The main purpose of this cleanse isn't to lose's to learn discipline...and to not crave the "bad" stuff as much. It's working:) and I am losing some weight too!

DAY 2 of cleanse

Today I had a baked potato with a dab of butter and black coffee for breakfast. It was surprisingly good! After that I was only allowed veggies the rest of the day....raw, cooked....just veggies. I had lots of raw veggies cut up for me to snack on throughout the day. Then I had cooked veggies with some seasoning for lunch. It got really hard for me when dinner came around. I took a few bites of Tmans supper...but other than that I stuck to it. I might not be doing it perfectly...but I can promise you my calorie intake the last few days has been well below half of what I normally would that's good!!!

By the end of the day I am really hungry and tired.

Weighed myself....and I am down 2 more pounds!!!! I am headed in the right direction! Once I get through this cleanse and start working out...I am not going to focus on my weight so much. I am going to start focusing on my size...and measuring myself. I know that muscle weighs more than fat and I don't want to freak out if I gain weight when working out...cause I should!

Day 3 is all the fruit and veggies I want! I CAN DO THIS:-)

DAY 1 of cleanse

Today was REALLY hard for me. I ate nothing but fruit up until supper...I had to have something in my was killing me...and I broke. I only had about 3-4 bites of it can't be too bad. I am not going to eat anything else tonight and get a good nights sleep!

I am hoping that tomorrow will be a little easier since I can actually eat food!!!! The fruit thing sucked!

I had my 10 glasses of water:-)

I will weigh myself first thing tomorrow!!!!

Tomorrow I am going to start this 7 day cleanse. I think it will be a good jump start to a new healthy way of eating and lifestyle change:-) I will post daily to let you guys know what it's like...and if it works:-)

Today I prepared by making the soup, cutting up all of the fruit and veggies, and making a trip to the store for everything else I need! I am super pumped to see how I feel after these next 7 days!!!

Today is 7/8/12
Weight: 179

My goal is to lose a little weight...and start a new way of eating:-)

It's ALL about me!!

I am sick and tired of trying to always make everyone else happy...and worrying about what everyone else thinks! It's time to focus on me...and what I want...and what makes me happy! Who cares what anyone else thinks??? NOT ME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Next week I am going to try out this "cleanse" thingy for 7 days....not sure I can make it through the whole 7 days...but I am going to try. It's supposed to make you lose 10-17 pounds. We will see about that:-)

Moved into my new apartment...just me and Tman again:-) Joel and I are still going to be together...just not live together. This is what works for us:-)
I have decided to make my patio "my" space:-) It's going to be sooooo pretty and relaxing! I will post pics once I am done with it!
