Well, I didn't make my goal of 5 pounds, but I did lose 2.5 pounds.

I am not too mad about it. I am just steering clear of "Thanksgiving terror" so I won't gain it back.

I have been working out at home and it's been going OK.

This past week was not only hectic, but not very productive weight-wise.

My NOMS trainer Shawn Zahel put me on a 5-pound goal this week.

We will see how this goes.

Me and former FIT Challenger Derek Grant are getting together this week.

Busy, busy, busy me.

The FIT Fright Challenge 5K on Sunday kicked my bleep!

But honestly it made me want to do more!

The next time I will not take a temperamental 40-pound kid with me! I will be paying a sitter! Lol.

It's definitely been a better week, but it's definitely hard working out after not working out for a long time.

I've written out a plan for myself as far as workouts go.

My legs feel like they weigh a ton as I try to do leg drives.

This past week has taught me a few things about myself.

How much of an emotional eater I am.

How much I have not pushed myself.

How stress plays a huge part in how I operate.

I also learned if you want something bad enough you have to work bad enough for it.

In my last blog, I talked about how I was kinda on pause ... well, that's over!!

I am back in the gym, baby!! Whoop whoop!

I am super excited and I still managed to lose a little weight on my own in the time I was out of the gym.

Well, I've been on pause recently because of my schedule and my babysitter situation.

I want to scream!

Then I have people saying, "Don't mess up this opportunity."

I'm like "Oh, so you must have a solution to this problem? Oh, you don't? Then shut up!""

This past week hasn't been very productive.

My son was sick with strep throat and the flu.

This week definitely has to make up for this one.

But I am a mommy first.

This past week has been a real eye-opener for me.

I realized how precious life is and how important it is to be healthy. Not just to look good, but to have a better quality of life while we are here on earth.

This past week I had mixed feelings about my 8-pound weight loss.

1:37 PM Sep 10, 2014

This past week went much better!

Even though I sometimes have difficulties getting with my trainer at NOMS, I have used some of the things he taught me and I do them at home.
