What's good, home skillet?

This journey started on/around May 1st, and here we are almost 3 months later and you know what?

The results.

We see them. 

I measured myself yesterday as I normally do my measuring somewhere between the 23rd and 25th of the month. My results were a little less than they've been in previous months, but darnit I still lost 3.5 inches!

Math time. You know how much I hate math. But according to this post, and the fact that I just mentioned my 3.5" gone, that means I've lost 14 inches!!

14 inches! In just under 3 months!! AAAHHHHH!!!!!






So good. So, so good.

Working out has officially become a habit, which is something I never thought I'd say or would be excited about. I feel gross if I don't go every other day, though weekends tend to not count. I may be trying my first crossfit class with the Bearded Wonder this Saturday. It's a free class offered at one of the studios in the area, and given how much I love saving money, why not go with it?

I do feel like I've hit a bit of a rut with my workout. I still love NROLFW, but it's tough with some of the workouts since we just don't have the equipment at my work's gym. Don't get me wrong, we have a great gym. But substituting some of the workouts with other forms of equipment and without the help of a professional scares me a little. I really don't want to hurt myself. =\ Sooo I've been trying out a few other things I've learned about and am using NROLFW as a guideline now.

I've been debating on hiring a trainer here for a session or 2 as they're cheaper than at normal gyms, but money is still tight which is why I'm having a hard time sucking it up and doing it. It may be good though, to get some guidance on some of my workouts. You don't want to spend a ton of time in the gym and 1) hurt yourself, or 2) waste your time. It IS possible to spend an hour in the gym and not accomplish a lot.

So anywho. I lost 3 lbs last month which was also exciting. I had my first wedding dress fitting the other night, and let me tell you- there's nothing that scares you into eating better than a wedding dress fitting. I'm planning on doing some grocery shopping this weekend to get some stuff to bring for lunch. As of now I'm at the mercy of the servery here (which is fantastic), but I'd love to save my pennies and know exactly what I'm eating. A treat here and there is fine, but ultimately I'd like to bring my lunch either every day or 4 out of 5 days of the week. I'll let you all know how it goes. =)

Want to see a silly but results-showing picture of me? Also, I'm not good at taking pictures of myself without looking like a goober. As in I can't take myself seriously. As in I make ridiculous faces. Whatever! This is an update, yo! I do what I want!

I've become one of those "bathroom selfie" girls. And at work no less! The shame!! 
Really it's just to show how my front has slimmed down, which is wonderful for me. I still have the dreaded "front butt", which all my fellow Fat Kids know about and you skinny folk will never understand, buuut it's shrinking! 

Thanks Wayne! 
How've you all been?! What's the hizzap?! What's the heezy?!
I don't know what I'm saying anymore. Stop judging me.
