Memorial Day Weekend and More

Well, you can't say I didn't warn you. I'm a horrible blogger. I just have a hard time finding the time to do it as much as I would like. So this post will be a catch up of everything you've been missing out on since my last post. Shall we?

First of all let me update you on week 2 of the 21 Day Fix. It's going well. Not as good as the first week, but still good. I'm not sure why week 2 was different. Maybe I didn't prep as much on the weekend or maybe I gave in more than I should have. I pretty much stayed on track but for whatever reason my results weren't quite as drastic as week 1. Maybe it's like on Biggest Loser where they lose 20 pounds in the first week and then week 2 they lose 5. I lost 3.5 lbs in week one which was awesome. Week 2 I was down to another .5lbs. I'm not complaining though! A loss is a loss is a loss and that put me at my goal weight!

Now for the bad news. Memorial day was great and you know what else was great? The pina colada that I enjoyed at our friends house. Seriously that thing was amazing! (Thanks Eric, if you read my blog...) Other than that I did fairly good considering. I didn't really eat BAD things, I just ate too much of things. I definitely went over on my purple fruit containers and probably my green veggie containers too. So when I started off week 3 I was back up around 2 lbs. Here's the thing though, our bodies are crazy. My weight fluctuates between 1-2 lbs per day anyway.

It also took all of this for me to realize that I'm human too. I was hesitant to share this with you guys. My brain was saying "you can't tell them all that. You're a Beachbody Coach now. People depend on you." But I think I learned that you guys may (or may not...) depend on me but you also expect me to be real with you so that's where I'm at. I cheated. I had a yummy, sugary drink and I didn't eat 3 greens and 2 purples. But I'm back on track this week and ready to finish strong.

Now, for the really fun part of my weekend. Did anybody even make it this far down? If you did then you're in for a treat. My sweet Blakely started crawling this weekend!! Literally I was on the phone and she just took off. No army crawl here, full out knees and hands crawl! And then guess what....she got 2 teeth!! And then guess what happened after that....she started pulling up! Can somebody tell this girl to slow down? I was not prepared for all of that in one weekend. But it's so fun to see her crawling all over the place now.  Here's a little snapshot.


Alright that's it for now. See ya next time!

Until then,


  1. Mmm... a pina colada sounds good right about now! :)

  2. No one is perfect so don't beat yourself up. I know I'm going to struggle with the 21 Day fix but somehow knowing someone else (my couch!) Gave in and "cheated" once takes a little less pressure off to be "perfect"

    And look at Blakely go!! Seriously G you better get ready. If the pulling up is starting she'll be walking by Halloween... maybe even by her birthday! Enjoy every moment! It all goes by faster than you realize!

    Keep posting... I read your blog!! lol
