Awesome Progress!

So if you follow me on Facebook you may already know this! I AM A SIZE 6!!! My goal size!!! I can't believe it! AND I WORE A BIKINI today AROUND PEOPLE! I am so excited!!! And proud! I stopped the HCG diet because 13 days in I seriously almost passed out! It was not good and my family agreed that I should not continue the diet. I lost 9 pounds on the diet and a half inch or and inch on every part of my body and was in a size 8. Since I quit that diet I have made good food choices consuming 1200-1800 calories a day. I have been using  My Fitness Pal app and Map My Run app to keep track of my calories and my progress of exercise (today I beat my mile time by 45 seconds!). I LOVE it! Then I share it on Facebook, not twitter because I only want people I really know in person to see my map. It helps me keep me accountable because it will show exactly what I did because of GPS and keeps my time so if I slack people will see. It's great motivation.

 My weight hasn't changed much, it's up and down, mostly down but I really don't care, I am smaller than my pre-pregnancy size (8) and have a bigger bust than I did back then so of course my weight isn't the same when my body isn't the same. SO I have decided to not care about my weight anymore, BUT to focus on being in shape and fit. I still have "loosish" skin in the abs and am learning to get over my stretch marks. Nothing I can really do, realistically about them and I had a freakin' huge baby! lol! And I love her and God knows she was worth EVERYONE! But I am doing plank exercises to flatten out my stomach even more.

Oh and I have little to no cellulite! This is CRAZY! Like a month ago it was there and I thought the dimples would never go away, but I found out yesterday in the dressing room that it's gone! WOO HOO! I am not about showing my body all over the place but it's nice to feel comfortable in my own skin, and to know that I have worked hard to get this way. I haven't felt this way in a LONG LONG time! God is good and he knows that things don't always come easy but hard work and persistence do pay off and that... "I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me".Phil 4:13 This is true. I remember this is my 1 temple and his strength can help me keep it up!

Getting this excitement out feels good! I would LOVE to hear from you and your plans or success stories of your weight/fitness. Let's chat it up and motivate each other more!

Catch Up

I have been really inconstant with blog posts, vlogs, and my music video uploads on youtube! Sorry if you keep up with me! Let me catch you up!

I have started a very controversial diet, I actually started April 30th and have dropped 8lbs! I am doing it for 21 days unless I am happy after 15. (those are the 2 cycles for my weight loss goals) I have been working on getting under 150 for FOREVER! Finally I am under it! I have lost inches every where! It has been VERY exciting! I am now at 148! YAY! I am wearing size 6/8 and am excited to move into just a 6 and not have muffin top! LOL. But I was a size 10 when I started. I want to be in between 130-140. Not exactly sure at this point of a specific weight but I don't want to be smaller than a size 4 in pants. and I don't want to weigh less than 125 for sure. I just have too see how my body is after 2 pregnancies. I know my hips aren't the same! Once I hit 140 I think I will have a better Idea. My pre-pregnancy weight was 144 and I know I want to be just under that. If you are wondering what the diet is it is HCG... I did talk to my doctor before I did this and she gave me the go ahead as long as it's the only thing I do.

I have not cheated once! Until tonight. I had already planned on it because it was a pre-planned Girls night out and we do it every month and this month was my pick so I knew I would cheat only this night, and I am ok with that. It wasn't a weak moment or a cave, I went into this knowing this would be my one and only cheat. And it was SUSHI! Not the worst cheat ay? lol (no I am not Canadian lol). When I came home I swam VERY hard for 30 minutes so when I get on the scale tomorrow I hope I don't gain. If I stay the same fine, if I lose more PRAISE GOD!

So onto the next thing, I got a job!!! One aside from my jewelry business which I still do and love! I got hired at Soma Intimates (similar to victoria secret) and I am VERY excited. I can't wait to find out my discount seeing as I REALLY need some new swim suits for Hawaii in a month and 1/2, and will probably need a new bra or 2 AND my great friends bachelorette party! Now I can save and get her something great! My first shift is tomorrow but it's just the paperwork and policy day but still exciting.

Today I just got some new jewelry and was VERY pleased with it! I can't wait to show it off! I could never sell something I didn't love so I am glad I love this jewelry, plus I get and give most of it for free! Best part!

I am currently in the 1st book of the Outlander series and am liking it a whole bunch! I got it on audible.com and am really liking that I can listen to it at night and just relax. I have the 1st 4 books so this should be fun!

I plan on getting my schedule from Soma and sitting down to map out a weekly calendar to make sure I get my music in on my youtube Click to see my videos weekly. So I hope to get more consistent with that.

Hmmm.... Yeah I think you are caught up :) Maybe I will hear from the voice soon, maybe I wont hear at all we shall see!

Peace out and God Bless! oh and I am not proof reading this so there may be typos and I don't care lol!

"It's gonna be May"... oh wait it is May!

So this cracked me up! It's already May because I never go to bed early BUT through retweets I found this and it made me laugh because if you know the song it's referencing you get it and you should laugh too. BUT just in case you are a little strange or didn't grow up in America or late 90's early 2000's (is that how you say that? Probably not.) Then just click the link > "It's gonna be May" and you will get it... and if you don't... well... I feel bad for you lol!

In all seriousness it's MAY 2012! It's just crazy how time flies! May has a ton of things happening, Graduations, Proms, and a BUNCH of birthdays, at least in my family and friend circle. We are almost 1/2 way through the year! Unreal!

So It has been a little while since I have posted music on my youtube page (please take a look and subscribe > SandyWessel, I have some vlogs and stuff but my music is what I care most about) and I really want to do some more soon! I did KROD this month and that was a TON of fun. I want to collaborate more with people but that seems to be hard to work out with other schedules and with a baby (and the other people who have kids) but I am going to put more effort into making that work. Maybe seeing some more original music from me and my peeps (lol I really just said peeps). I have to get copyrights though... I don't need people stealing my/our future material!

So what would you like to hear from me? What songs do you think my voice would fit, or I could make my own? Challenge me and let's see how many songs I can live up to the challenge on! Comment on this blog, my Youtube video's, and please help me by passing my videos around and making my dreams a reality.

Much Love!
