It's Prep Time!

Getting my prepping on for a very successful workout week is what I have spent the last hour doing. I have my list made out of my workouts and have my recipes planned now just ready to put it all into action. I am doing a 8 week challenge from TONE IT UP! It is called the Bikini Series and so far I am in love <3 These two trainers are so inspirational and motivating, I cant wait to see my results at the end of my 8 weeks. I will be accompanying their workouts with my AdvoCare nutrition plan, so I hope to see really great results! :)
Here is my workout for today and I am so ready to head back home from school to complete it.

After I complete this workout I will be doing my Jillian Michaels Shred DVD that I am in L<3VE with! 
Hope you all find some inspiration or motivation from today's post and join in with me and millions of others who are taking on Katrina and Karena's Bikini Series Challenge!

Vera Bradley Outlet Sale

Vera Bradley is one of my favorite stores to purchase purses from. My best friend and I went up to Fort Wayne, Indiana last Tuesday for the Vera Bradley Outlet Sale! I had never seen so much Vera in my life until I walked into the stadium where the sale was happening.
Walking through the doors into the room filled with Vera my friend Shelby and I knew exactly what we wanted, and we were determined to get it. We made a map from the brochure we got upon arriving and planned out where we wanted to go. Luckily everything we had our eyes on was all located relatively close. The only thing we were worried about was that they would only have a limited amount of the items we were looking for. We were totally wrong because there was literally mounds of patterns and Vera items piled up on the tables.
Here are some pictures of our aftermath. I definitely spent more than I was wanting but I was very excited for all my new goodies.

Making Progress!

Wow!! I can't believe how far I have come on my weight loss journey, and looking back at my before and afters I am really seeing the results all my friends and family have been seeing for months. My hard work and dedication has payed off so far now I just need to keep the momentum going.
Where my journey began was quite comical now looking back. It all started when I was putting on a pair of business casual pants and let me tell you I had the hardest time getting those suckers on. I think right then and there I knew I needed change but it wasn't until I had finished pulling them up it clicked when I ripped the belt loop. I got so upset because these pants at one time where actually to big to even wear. My emotions basically took over from there when I was frantically pissed off the whole evening.
From there I told my mom I needed to change something and she was there for every step of the way. I had heard about AdvoCare but just never had the money to purchase it. I eventually said hell with it and started doing products within a week after my breakdown. I had a great coach through the whole process she kept up with me and made sure I was seeing results the whole time I was on my 24 Day Challenge from AdvoCare. I had lost 10 lbs and 10 inches and finally gained some confidence back in myself.
It's been 4 months since I made my lifestyle change and I couldn't be happier with how everything is going. There are times when I dread going to the gym but after my time there I feel great! I have lost a total of 17 lbs since I started my journey and I will be continuing on until I reach my ideal self. Setting a weight for myself was my goal but now I have realized its not about the number it's about how you feel. Since I have cut so much out of my diet I have noticed extreme differences in my energy, appetite, and skin appearance. It's been overall amazing!
If you are someone like me who just needs that boost to get them motivated and going, shoot me and email and I would love to share more with you of what I'm doing!
