The transformation of me

{June 18, 2012}   A morning walk

So I go walking in my neighborhood. It nothing major just around the block about ten times or thirty minutes which ever I am feeling. Well it seems I have generated some attention on this particular walk. On one side of the block a taxi driver comments “dang girl, you walked around the block that fast!” I guess he doesn’t notice that I am in full power walk mode, who walks slow when they are power walking? So I proceed on around to the other side of the block where there is a funeral home. Well at the very moment that I am taking my walk the funeral home is getting a shipment of caskets and there is an employee out receiving the delivery. Well this isn’t blocking my walk at all but this man decide’s to comment as well “girl, you walked the block THAT fast?” Now when I say full power walking mode I mean exercise gear on, headphones, sneakers, headband, full sweat. I mean I thought it was pretty obvious that I was not on a leisurely stroll. So I picked up the pace and the next time around the block more comments. Next time I go walking in the neighborhood I am carrying a do not disturb sign and hanging it on my back!

Ok so for the month of May I didn’t do so well. I know the reasons why but I won’t give you guys any excuses.I did gain but I didn’t lose either. I exercised a couple times a week but I haven’t been making wise food choices. Normally I would cook different meals for me and the family but I just haven’t been putting in the extra effort. I really want the results but for some reason they won’t just magically appear:( I just have to try and keep my mind focused. There is something that my husband says to me that makes me want to try harder and do my best in everything but I will keep that between us two. I don’t think that he knows how much it motivates me, but it does a lot.

{April 6, 2012}   Motivation

Good morning all. Another wonderful day outside, sun shinning, birds singing and it’s the weekend baby! I just wanted to post today to give a special thanks to someone special in my life, my husband Vincent Smith.  I am doing this because he deserves it.


My motivation to get healthy!


Yesterday afternoon, he came to me and told me that he was really proud of me and that he could tell that I was truly motivated to become more healthy. He then tells me that he is behind me 100% and that what ever I need from him that he was there to support me.  Now ladies we can all agree that every woman wants to hear her man tell her something like that!  The thing about my man is he puts his money were his mouth is.  I came home from work, I put the baby to sleep then got dressed and left for the gym.  When I came home, all the laundry had been washed, the baby had been fed and was playing with daddy when I came home.  My husband bends over backwards to make sure I have all the help that I need, and I love him for it.  I am so lucky to have a husband that doesn’t mind doing house work.  Anyway, so he tells me that on my workout days he is going to try to make it as easy as possible for me so that I don’t lose my motivation.  He also told me that when I feel like quitting to just come and talk to him and he will get my mind right.  He is just as excited as I am to see what results this journey will produce.  I know that he misses the  pre-baby body that I use to have, and I think that he and I both deserve to see me get back to that place.  I am doing this transformation for my personal health and well-being, but I am also doing it for my husband, we have to take care of our temples (bodies).  Ladies the thing is when we meet our husbands we are a certain way, we can’t let ourselves go because we are “in love” and “happy”.  I strive to try my best to get to a healthy place physically and remain there for myself and most definitely for my husband.  To Vincent, I know that you love me, but in a few months there will be less of me to love, and I can’t wait!

I feel great I had a great workout last night, shout out to (SD) Clarence for pushing me! If you need a good trainer ladies and gentlemen he is the one, just hit me up if you want his info.  Anyway later today me and the hubby will be taking and posting my before pictures and measurements so that we can watch this number change from month to month.  I will only post it monthly, I will not tell you my start weight until I reach my goal, but I will update how much weight and inches I have lost, so here goes nothing.

Until later, Smooches!
