My Weight Loss Plans continue.....with a twist!

I've had weight issues ever since I had my daughter in 2005~I lose a few pounds & as fast as I can blink, the pounds are back on, sometimes with a couple extra! Ugh--so depressing!
For over a year now, I have been trying to keep track of my weight loss on my Tumblr blog-which I have decided to shut down now.  I decided to add my weight loss & change in eating habits to this blog....I think its easier for me :)
So....besides my ongoing struggles, I am now inspired to really get in shape thanks to the Disney's Princess Half Marathon.  Leave it to me to add Disney to my weight loss plans, hehehehe!!  This event is scheduled for February 22-24, I am hoping to be able to attend and get in shape to run this half marathon...yay!!!  I've never participated in anything like this before...I've never been an athletic person, so I really have to dedicate time to get in shape.  I'm not doing this just for the marathon, I know that I need this to be healthy and keep up with my kids' hectic schedules during the school year, so here we go!!

So here I am - start of week 1, healthier eating and working out!! I am following Jeff Galloway's training program for the Disney Princess Half Marathon.  I'm hoping this training will help me run faster and more.  Today I ran for 30 minutes with a pace of 16'13"/mi, 1.85 miles total.  This has got to improve, no question!!!

Now to plan our meals for the rest of the day.....I am including my family as much as I can.  This goal of mine is not only for me & my hubby to lose weight, but for all of us to learn how to eat healthier and maintain a healthy & active lifestyle!!

Taking a Detour!!!!

So we are up & out of my dad's house by 7am.  It was hard and I tried to leave quickly, my poor baby girl even cried-I felt soooo bad for her.  Usually I'm the only one crying, but she really didn't want to leave :(  So,  we said goodbye-hope to be back soon (permanently) and we drove off!
About an hour out, we stopped for breakfast and had to practically make a run for it, LOL! There were like 20 buses full of kids!! By the time we got inside, the Dunkin Doughnuts line was like a mile long-ugh, there goes my coffee!  So we had no other choice but to eat burgers at Wendy's, everything else had super long lines that we didn't want to wait on!
We grabbed our burgers and left.  A little while later Laz asks me if I want to stop at Clearwater Aquarium.  At this point, I'm not 100% sure-I was sad about leaving & felt like just being home to calculate & come up with good, concrete reasons to move to Florida.  On the other hand, I really wasn't looking…

New Week~New Program

Here we go!!  I took a week off to regroup and decide what to do next.  I really have to say that having Beach Body on Demand is the BEST!!!

There are so many programs and nutrition plans to follow.  So since I recently completed Transform 20, I was thinking of doing it again, but I've been curious about 80 Day Obsession for quite some time.  I haven't attempted this program because at first, I felt it wasn't for me.  The workouts are longer than I'm used to and the timed nutrition is challenging for me, but I finally let curiosity get the best of me.  I'm going to give it a shot!

I started Sunday with my meal prep!  I was a bit overwhelmed at first, but I followed the sample nutrition plan and was able to get my shopping list and meals put together.

So for my first week, I have every meal planned out.  Not prepared, since I'd rather make my eggs for breakfast fresh each morning.  Most of my meals have been prepped!

My days are set to begin at 4:30AM with my sh…

Weekend Trip to Niagara Falls, Canada~Part 2

Here is our 2nd day in Niagara Falls.  We started our morning with breakfast in the hotel restaurant.  After breakfast we headed over to Marineland.  This park was nothing spectacular, but it was a nice little trip.  We saw a dolphin show, saw several other animals, killer whales, fed Beluga whales and rode 1 or 2 rides.  Again, nothing spectacular but it was fun.  A lot of walking, and our favorite part was feeding the beluga whales - they were so cute!
The dolphin show was also fun!  Its been a long time since we've seen dolphins in action.

After all the walking, we were run down and hungry.  We headed back to the hotel to shower and prepare for our dinner at Massimmo's Italian restaurant.  The view was beautiful!  I enjoyed dinner, but hubby and baby girl didn't.  I like to try new things and unfortunately the other 2 don't - and there wasn't much on the menu that they liked.  Baby girl had Ceasar Salad, hubby had Minestrone soup and I had Linguine Carbonara.
