I have GOT to start drinking more water. It is really that only thing that I have not been consistent with. With adding more water, I will probably drink less half/half tea. I also need to focus on getting at least 50 grams of protein. I know I get close, but I can not say with confidence I meet it every day.
Here are a before and after picture:
Bucket List Update with Items Checked Off!
#1 - I can't wait to buy clothes from any store I would like. I have always been a fashionista trapped in a chunky girl's body. Which has made clothes buying limited. I can't wait to put together some fantastic outfits and I get to start with WINTER!
- I have bought underwear from Victoria's Secrets and am now in a size 16 so my hunni picked out some clothes at New York and Co.
- In early March I bought my first size 12 shorts. I then wore my first size 12 slacks. I wore a size 12 in Jean on March 20. It's nice to be a size 12.
- I first realized I completed this goal while attending the 2015 Florida High School Basketball Championships in February. I sat next to a very nice older gentleman and I didn't feel like I was imposing on him. :)
- I can do this comfortably all the time now.
- Took my first class April 7th! I am signed up for the month of April!
- My blood pressure is fantastic now, 118/75. My resting heart rate is also under 60bpm.
#7 - I look forward to being able to tie or fasten my shoes without huffing and puffing for air!
- Completed all the time :)
#10 - I can't wait to be able to buy a tennis skirt and not be afraid to wear it in public!! :)
- I have worn my tennis skirt out to play, but more importantly, I am wearing yoga pants in public. lol
#12 - Zip lining! wooohooo Most places have a weight limit and I can do some....but I want to be able to pick which zip line I would like to do!
#13 - I want a second tattoo. Preferably on my hip line (because I want to be able to hide it), I have thought about trying to cover up some of my scar from my DIEP surgery, but I will have to wait and see! I have been a huge fan of "To Thine Own Self Be True", feathers, something breast cancer related, or something in Italian.... I have picked this out!
#14 - I have so many pairs of Gucci and Prada heels that I never wear because I mess shoes up from being too heavy or they are just hard to wear all day. I can't WAIT to have less weight on my shoes and wear cuter ones! PLUS....SOMEONE will owe me a pair of red Manolos when I get to 160 pounds!
#15 - I want to do a best friends photo shoot with my girls! Since I have always be the heaviest one, by a long shot, I never wanted to do these. I would like to hire a professional Photog and head over to Disney or some other fabulous location! Along with my family, these ladies are my rock and support system...they keep me in line :)
#16 - It's coming close to Halloween and I can't help thinking that I will not be buying a costume this year, because A, I don't really have anywhere to wear it to, and B (more importantly) they never make anything cute over a size 16. I CAN'T WAIT TO BUY A NORMAL SIZED COSTUME....
#17 - I can't wait to see the look of surprise on faces of those I do not see often after losing weight. Seeing someone after a major change, whether it is weight loss or just a drastic hair cut, is always fun!
- Pretty safe to say I get these comments all the time from people that I go a few weeks without seeing.
#18 - I would like to go horseback riding, either on the beach or through a jungle-type environment. Again, most horseback riding requirements have weight limitations and I always hit the borderline number. I don't want to have to worry about that!
#19 - This is corny, but I can't wait to wrap a regular sized bath towel around me!!!!!! It's cold when there are gaps!
#20 - I would like to sign up for my first Warrior Dash once I am in better shape. This looks like so much fun, but I don't want to get stuck or not be able to pull myself along.
#21 - Let's just say better over all hygiene. I look forward to not have as many rolls and crevasses. Plus, I will be able to reach more places to shave ;) hahaha, TMI I know. Soooooo much easier to shave now!
#22 - I want to be able to do 10 pull-ups! It's going to be a loooooong time before I do this. LOL
#23 - I have always wanted to become a certified Scuba Diver. Part of me is scared and the other part knows I need to be in better shape. This is something I will definitely do!
#24 - To weigh less than I did in High School! My senior year, I probably weighed about 170. I thought I was soooo fat at the time. geezzz..
#25 - I would like to take up yoga and increase my flexibility. I am hoping this will also enhance my sexual performance in the bedroom....and other places I will be able to fit with my new, slimmer body ;) I have start my flexibilty classes, along with my Pole Classes. I am doing yoga as well.
#26 - I want to be able to have my hunni give me a piggy back ride!!
#27 - Tango dance lessons....I am addicted to this sexual and sensual dance. I have been since I traveled to Argentina!
#28 - I can do anything without being judged by the size of my body...people will not be able to use that to pick fun of me and I will believe people when they tell me I am pretty.
#29 - I can buy sexy underwear and feel confident in them :)
