Fitness challenge week 11


Here I am…another week gone by. I have not changed in weight this week. I am not going to let it get me down. I have made progress and I know if I just keep doing it, I will continue to make progress. I know I can and will do it. As Nike says:  Just Do IT!!


Height: 5′ 7″

Age: 38

Weight : 176.6

My bust: 38 in

My waist: 32 in

My Hips: 37 in



Here we are again the one-word prompt challenge. Seems the word today is ANGRY. Well considering I have been sick here is my poem:  Sick

wake up

feels like a sucker punch

oh no can’t be

yep I’m sick

so angry

got too much to do

hate myself to let this happen

getting angrier

but can’t change it

I’m sick

why me

why now

too much needs to be done

won’t do me any good

I’m sick

get over it





I thought I’d give the one-word prompt challenge a go. Seems today’s word is SOUTH . So here is my poem “Southbound”

on the road

to points unknown

to the end of the line

who knows what I’ll find

southbound to the end

of all the railways


and biways

not knowing where I’ll be

to the south

where the sun shines

and no worries

come to my mind



A new challenge for me


Ok I am about to start on a new challenge for me. For long time I have been overweight, not obese but overweight. I will be honest I am about 35 pounds overweight. If you go by the recommended weight for my height…I’m about 45 pounds overweight. I am saying 35 pounds because I cannot see myself at 140 pounds anymore but I’ll cross that bridge when I lose the 35 🙂 I know it didn’t happen overnight and I know it’s not going to come off overnight. So in order to do this I am giving myself 1 yr. I know that sounds ridiculous. Most people want it of in a lot less than that. I figure since this did not happen overnight I’m not going to expect myself to lose it overnight. I have got to a point where if I don’t do something I know I will be somewhere I don’t want to be. I don’t want to be that person in 10 years that has to have cholesterol, blood pressure, diabetic or any other medications that follow becoming obese. I know not all obese people have these issues but I know a lot do. I am almost 40 yrs old and I have to make a change. That’s what I am doing now!

So to kick this off I am going to be completely honest and bare all of my measurements to all of my followers and anyone else that sees this. I hope I have your support my friends because I am sure I will need it.

This is for week 1 (measurements taken on 7/14/2015):

My age: 37 (almost 38)

My height: 5′ 7″

My weight: 186.4 lbs

My bust: 42 in

My waist: 37 in

My hips: 43 in

Now that it seems I have bared all I can, I mean really I don’t think I can more than this (at least legally 😛 ), I will update this every week with my new measurements. It will be updated regardless if I have lost anything or not. This is my new journey and I will do this…for myself!
