Slow and Steady......

Slowly but steadily I feel like my body is coming around, that all the hard work with "eating right" and getting exercise is starting to show. Slow and steady wins the race right!? At this point I know its gonna be a long road to get my body back to where I want it to be and as I start to see progress it inspires me to keep it up.

While I don't think anyone can really notice yet I can by the way my clothes fit and feel. The shorts I am currently wearing used to be uncomfortably tight.  Not in the "That girl over there has a camel toe" kinda tight but more in the "bless her heart those shorts are so tight the pockets are pulling across her thighs". While I am still carrying my saddle bags around like its no ones business, I know the harder I work and the more healthy choices I make I will feel better and better in my clothes. has been a huge help in holding me accountable and thank you to all my readers who have found me (MrsChupp08) and friend ed me. I encourage you all to open your food diaries to your friends. I feel like it holds me accountable AND I can share some of the yummy things I am eating and can get new ideas from you as well. 

I started Zumba last week, where has it been all my life. I LOVE it and by LOVE I mean LOVE it! I love the fast pace, the dancing and ALL the glorious sweat! I don't feel like I get a good workout unless I sweat like a whore in church-REALLY I am serious. I walk away from the 50 minute session refreshed and dripping-it seriously is great! I still have a gym membership to a women's only circuit type place, haven't been since before I got pregnant in February. I should go back, I enjoyed toning up...they just have such terrible hours and its hard for me to get there.....

While I have gone from 210 down to 203.5 since starting I still have a long way to go. Im in it for the long haul.

Question: Should I do progression pictures for you or is that over rated and lame?


  1. Firstly, Congrats!! =)You should be proud of yourself. The dedication is the hard part. Secondly, I think you should do photos. I think you'll feel great being able to look back at them.

  2. Good for you! You're doing it! I would love to see progression pics! Your posting about it is making me want to start doing something for myself too! Way to go!
    Praying for you!

  3. yes do the pics! ps I love that you said whore in church. Keep it up!

  4. congrats! Thats awesome. I have never commented but I always read your blog and I look forward to seeing you get yourself back. Please do the pictures!

  5. Fantastic start! Pictures are a great motivator for you so I say ye!

    I have heard of Zumba, my friend said it was really fun. Love hear this stuff.


  6. Congrats on the loss!! That's awesome you're seeing a difference already. I'm so tall that it takes me for-ev-er to notice. When you're working hard it can be super frustrating.

    I have heard Zumba is awesome! I need to try is some time, sounds like my kind of workout!


We love feedback; however, if you have nothing nice, encouraging, uplifting or insightful to say don't say anything at all. Thank You!
