Ass Kicking...Check..

I have made a mission for myself to lose 20lbs by vacation in August. I'm going to the beach to see my sister. Bathing suit. So far I'm down a whopping 3lbs, so 17 to go. In order to achieve this, I've been doubling my workouts again, two hours a day. So far, this has only happened 3 days a week, working out a total of 6 days, and 9 hours per week. I changed my runs to hill intervals, and change it up with the eliptical and bike, and on the weekend I do a hard core trail.

I've done this before, with working out on lunch, then running another half hour and going to my hour long 1,000 calorie burning bootcamp class after that. At that time, I didn't lose weight cus I didn't eat ENOUGH. It's really not rocket science, but for some reason it is.

70lbs just seemed to melt off and ive been stuck for two years! Gaining and losing the same 10lbs over and over and over again. I just want to lose 40 more. That's it. I'll be happy being fluffy me, I don't want to be skinny. I'm ok with that!

The only thing left is food. I eat healthy 99% of the time, but mostly I eat carbs. So, I'm cutting them to only in the morning, with an english muffin, egg beaters, and turkey bacon.

No rice. Pasta. Potatos. And no sugar in its pure form, (im not reading every label in the world.) I'll still have vodka and seltzer water, because I gave up beer, carbs, and sugar... what more do you want from me?

Now, I partake in a bootcamp at work. Last night, I was the only asshole there. I thought she'd cancel the class but instead she taught just me.

You don't want a bootcamp instructor to focus only on you. Have you BEEN to bootcamp? It's like that P90X crap only you can't stop because its a class and they make you do it or the whole class suffers.

The only satisfaction I had was that she was struggling, and kept stopping to "adjust the music" and when we were done, she said "who came up with that workout?" as she was sweating profusely....and I said "I already ran four miles today" That felt pretty damn good!

*Then, I slept like a freaking rock.

**And, I might add, my ass is starting to look amazing.

***Got a new pic from before I lost 70lbs, that shocked me. When I lose my final 40 I'll post a before and after. It'll be a 100lb weight loss. Um...yea I said 100lbs.

Beer I could give up, but wine?!?! I'm going to drink a vodka soda now and pretend it's the same as working out. There are bicep curls involved, right? Send me some of those motivation vibes!
