Ketching Up With Kiki

{May 24, 2010}   Weight Watchers

I officially joined Weight Watchers today. The decision was not difficult considering pictures I saw of myself from over the weekend where I look like the Goodyear Tire Man. Ok maybe not THAT bad I mean I am my own worst critic. Anyway mom and I joined together and are going to support each other throughout the process. I am excited to get started and lose weight. Do I think it will be easy? Not at all, but I am willing to do whatever it takes to lose this weight and ultimately feel better about myself.

My Stats:
Starting weight: 191 (embarrased)
Goal weight by July 1: 175
Goal weight by August 1: 160
Goal weight by September 1: 145

My overall goal weight is to mantain between 135-140

Here goes nothing…


{April 7, 2010}   Rowing Machine

I love the rowing machine, maybe if I say it enough I will start to believe it.

Tonight I worked out for a good hour. I did 176 miles on the bike…ok the bike display was a little messed up, I did 4 miles. I then walked for 30 minutes. The rowing machine started calling my name and I obliged. After 10 minutes I did not think I would be able to walk again. Of course I was able to walk again and did another 10 minutes on the treadmill at 3.2 speed and 2.0 incline. After that I was feeling very accomplished and will be going back tomorrow.

I do wonder why after I work out I alway tend to want to eat something unhealthy for me. This evening I was able to restrain myself. Yay Me!

In other news I put down half of the deposit on a new apartment. This apartment is brand spanking new and gorgeous. KO and I will be living on the third floor, our choice I will get lots of exercise. The apartment is 2 bedroom/2 bath with plush carpets, balcony, all the appliances. The rent includes cable, internet, trash pickup, and water all for $665 a month. Cannot beat that for brand new apartments. I am also thrilled that the walls and floors are both contain sound barriers. We were in the model apartment on the balcony where we could hear all the construction and traffic as soon as we shut the door you could have heard a pin drop. It was an amazing feeling. Even better I am only 1 mile away from campus now instead of almost 10 minutes away.

I am looking forward to my new living situation. I have a feeling it will be much better than my current one.

Jack just threw up, I guess he ate too much. Boyfriend is going to brush his teeth.

I also have an interview with a syndicated country music radio show on Friday. It is an awesome opportunity and I believe I am a good fit for the position. I appreciate your thoughts and prayers 🙂

{March 5, 2010}   Jack

Jack is mine and my boyfriends 10 month old beagle/mountain cur puppy. We got him at 5 1/2 weeks old. He has been an amazing dog for the most part. He was house trained in no time and learned basic commands in a snap. Jack still has his rebellious moments like today when he ran off in my friends yard with a stray dog and refused to come back.

At his 6 month check up Jack weighed a whopping 38 pounds. We have not weighed him since, but I would venture to guess he is close to 50 pounds. He is has a brindle coat, beagle ears, a cur snout and barks like a hound dog. His tail also curls and looks like a question mark.

As of right now Jack knows these commands: sit, stay, lay down, come, jump up, shake, give kisses, high five, and the which one game. I have been working with him on roll over and take a bow. He is not a fan of roll over since he despises being pushed on his side. Yet he sleeps on his side or back all the time. Somedays I swear he is either part cat or part human depending on his mood.
