This week in "I Wanna Be Skinny" ...

Steph and I both had a few days last week where we ate whatever the hell we wanted. It involved cakes, chinese food, tacos, burgers, one or two peanut butter twix and cinnamon toast crunch. Shockingly we both lost weight. On Friday I did reach my goal of -4 lbs, but this morning I was only down 3lbs (boo that shit). Steph came close to her goal and lost 2lbs which i think is pretty damn good since she has a little one to watch, a hubs that seems to love to sabotage her plans, not to mention she was baking all weekend.

Our Goals for this week....

Steph: To do Cardio every day this week.

Beks: To do Cardio every day this week ( in the hopes that i drop another 4lbs)

we'll see what happens.

The Bet's Still On!

So Steph and I are still in this bet. She's dropped and kept off 14 lbs so far and I've lost 9. We've both gone down a solid size and after illness, ungodly PMS and the men we live with trying to convince us to eat doughnuts, chinese food and ice cream -- and at times succeeding ( T and I ended up at McDonalds at 2 am last week) Steph and I are both learning some useful stuff in terms of losing weight and keeping it off.

1. I feel like ass balls when I don't workout which is kind of a nice feeling.

2. Neither of us have gone down even a millimeter in our bustal-area. Neither of us really know how to feel about that. Also my butt has gotten bigger. I don't know how that works, but whatever

3. Neither of us can stomach fast-food beef anymore. It makes us both sick. I can also never eat more than a slice of pizza without feeling sick

4. Grapefruit. Such an untapped resource.

And now im just rambling.

Goals for this week ...

Beks: Drop 4lbs

Steph: Drop 3lb

We'll see what happens.

Weekly check in (brought to you by steph)

Beks and I decided that we would do these weekly check ins, I mean, other than all the trash talk goin on in texts, gchat sessions, or tweets that is...And because Mother Nature is trying to do her in at the moment, I'm posting this, our first actually, week's update.

I'm happy to announce that I lost a whopping 8 lbs. And that is with mini constantly holding forks and spoons my way with deliciously evil things I can't eat saying "Bite?" Or watching late night foodnetwork where all I do is drool over what is being made. I'm proud of my self control. Especially since my SIL who decided to start a diet around the same time as me recently admitted she gained 8 lbs. WTF?

Beks, despite being bloaty and crampy and bleeding from her monthly "friend" has lost 3 lbs. Very impressive since msot of the time she's demanding a cookie or something while she suffers. She even got her work out on. I'm amazed. I have quite a lot to live up to when AF pays me a visit. She'll need to do a post period weigh in and see just how much her "time of the month" screwed up her check in. Sometimes being a woman sucks.

And in case you were wondering, Beks really wants a Cowboys #88 jersey. I think she deserves one since her ovaries are trying to kill her from the inside out and she can't eat chocolate to help. Don't you?

All in all, we are both feeling a lot slimmer and just all around healthier as we cut out the unnecessary sweets, fats, carbs, etc in order to have a better diet/lifestyle.

Still though, how can I resist a little taunting when given the opportunity?
Oh Beks! You know you want some...

Going to the movie and I wanna wear my new jeans...

I sang the title to this post to the tune of "Going to the chapel" if you wanted to know, haha, but I am inspired by Beks and Steph and their ultra-competitive weight loss plan! I bought myself some jeans last month that were ridiculously low priced and barely fit on my ass so I have to have a plan for getting into them and actually being able to breath. Honestly, the muffin top sitch in these pants is colossal!

SO, what's a girl to do? Well, the hubs is following a new workout so I think I will find one to follow as well. And got to work on the food situation! School has got my diet all a mess, so I definitely need to focus on that too. My goal for the next week is to work out at least 4 times and to eat better, cooking more healthy meals at home. Maybe I can get Gusta in on my goal to fit into my fancy pants!

And just to give myself some more motivation I am going to post a pic of myself in the pants now, so that when I lose weight I can post a pic with me in the pants WITHOUT the muffin, fat-roll! Pardon the bright flash. Beks thinks my face exploded but it didn't. I dropped the camera and sort of broke it, so its not up to its normal capabilities!

New Moon Weight Loss Battle Royale

Lipsmacked vs 4theluvofmary

In the interest of actually losing weight and not just talking about how nice it would be ... Steph and I have enter into a little weight loss wager. taking into consideration our age, height and current weight we decided on reasonable goals... with a perfect deadline.

the plan: go down two sizes by the time New Moon is released on November 20th

the prize: winner gets a pair of brand new jeans

the IFs:
if we both drop the two sizes we've decided to exchange moderately priced adult novelty items

If one of us goes down more than two sizes the prizes will include:

2 sizes: jeans and a copy of Diana Gabaldon's Lord John and the Private Matter
3 sizes: jeans, a copy of Diana Gabaldon's Lord John and the Private Matter and a moderately priced adult novelty item

and ( i sorta hope this wont happen)

4 sizes: jeans, a copy of Diana Gabaldon's Lord John and the Private Matter, a moderately priced adult novelty item and a silly Twilight shirt of the winners choosing from Cafepress of

Either way ... winner takes all. the both of us have ultimate weight loss goals that go beyond two sizes, but we thought this would be a fun way to jump start things and an excuse to talk smack to each other on twitter. we will check in with each other every Friday to track our progress.

Feel free to join us in any way that feels right to YOU!

Back In Action ... Sorta



I kept looking this tab in my blogger feed thinking maybe I should update... maybe that'll motivate me. So far I don't exactly feel like going for a ten mile run, BUT I do think keeping on top of this would be a good thing. I hope Erica agrees.

New Goal: Wear earrings.

My mom, ever since I was 12, would ALWAYS tell me to wear earrings every single time I left the house. I was raging tomboy so I saw no need, but in an overall effort to "feel pretty" - I'm going to try it out.

I was cleaning out my purse this morning and two pairs of earrings I had shoved in a side pocket fell out. While putting those away I found a cute pair of mini CZs that I got from Claire's. I'm still tomboy enough to no want to rock real diamonds.

So now I'm wearing a pair of mini CZs and I must admit -- I do feel prettier.

We'll see what happens tomorrow.

Workout Jam of the Day (if I do indeed workout) : Ting Tings: That's not my Name.
