Hello! I am Kayla. I am here because I am ready to devote myself 100% to losing the pounds that my now 1 year old daughter “helped” me gain.
When I got pregnant I weighed 150 lbs and when I went into the hospital I was at 215 lbs. This was a huge shock to me, but I was not really worried about it since my daughter was healthy. I am 25 years old now at 168 and would love to be at 135-140 lbs.
I am here to ideally log on every day or so and do a rundown of what I have eaten that day, and my activity level. In an ideal world these are both good each day. If not I hope (beg, actually) for you to hold me accountable.
Also, I tend to get out all of my feelings through writing, so you may get a rundown of my life too. In that case, I promise it will be entertaining. Who knows, maybe I will make a few friends too.
Thanks for stopping by, and PLEASE leave me a comment of something and show me some love. Knowing I am not on this road alone would be wonderful.
Well, I have been off to a rocky start, but I am still motivated. My daughter has been sick, and my husband and I are in the process of moving half way across the country. Stress is in high gear, but I am still moving forward. If I take care of myself, I feel better, and if I feel better, I am going to handle life’s struggles better.
My husband is in the military and is a P90X fan. He wants me to do it with him, and I really want to, but I think I need to work myself up to that insane amount of dedication and exercise. Also, an hour a day is tough to carve out between my mom duties, being a wife, and getting ready to move. In lieu of P90X, I am going to start off with Jillian Michaels 30 day shred. I love Jillian Michaels. She is what I like to think of as a fitness Bad A**. I would love to train with her, as I think I would make such an amazing breakthrough. I have built up walls and am so afraid of pushing them down, because it takes hard work. But since I am not biggest loser material, I must work out with her DVD’s. I did day one and I was really surprised at how tough it was, and how good I feel I did. I am looking forward to moving through the DVD and getting “Shredded” haha. In a few months I want to be at a fitness level where I can go out and run. A 5K seems like such an amazing place to be for me and if I can get there, I will be so happy. Also, since I am going to be 100% honest, I want to look amazing in a bathing suit. This summer I want to go on a “float” with my husband and his family. For a few days college aged kids go down to the river and just float. I want nothing more than to lie on a big inner tube in the sun, with a cold adult beverage, and my rocking body. May be a shallow aspiration, but it really sounds like the life.
I have been doing OK with my food intake. I am making smarter choices, and trying to limit my portion sizes. I have had such a skewed idea on portion sizes…that would actually be a great post one day…hmm…anyways. I still have a ways to go, but I think I am working in a positive direction.
good luck! Portion sizes are tough to stick to especially in our supersized and fast paced world. A food scale will be your best friend! I think the thing that helps me stick to correct portions in healthy snacks in between meals and lots and lots of water. I love the crystal lite-type water mixes (i'm too cheap to by those so we get the wally world brand ) and your goal to float down the river in a fit body is not shallow at all, i want that goal someday too!

The past few days have been tough. It seems like when life is going crazy, eating a healthy meal is on the back of my mind. The drive through has been calling me, and sadly...I gave in last night. It was so good, but after words, I felt like I ate a 4 lb stick of butter. After my tummy ache went away, I decided for good, that I am making a change.
I have decided that Monday’s are going to be my weigh in days..So starting this Monday, I will be keeping track of my weight, and hopefully progress.
I hope everyone is having a great weekend. I am off to eat some veggies. : )
