I Never Start on Mondays

Well this is my first blog and I am so excited to share it with the world!

First of all let me introduce myself. My name is Michelle and I am the mother of a beautiful three year old boy named Lucas and the wife of my wonderful high school sweetheart. I work from home selling timeshares.

Before my son I was a very athletic person. I would eat healthy and workout everyday. During my pregnancy I gained 70 pounds! After the birth I got back on my feet and lost 50 lbs.

I know many women and men are in my shoes, trying to lose those last pounds! So I started this blog to share my daily diet, workouts, and thoughts. Everyone is welcome to ask me questions and post! I know now that with a blog that I am held accountable for my fitness journey.

So here is my first thought on this life changing blog:


Research shows that the percentage of failing a diet and fitness routine when you start on a Monday increases! I know this because it has happened to me in the past. I always start my goals TODAY. So since I started my goal TODAY, I will share with you my weight t, my diet, and my workout routine for today.

Weight After Pregnancy: 200 pounds
Weight as of 01/13/2011: 150Lbs
Goal: 120Lbs


Meal 1: 5 Egg whites, chopped onions, and 2 slices of deli turkey. Medium Banana. Full glass of water
Meal 2: Low Fat Yogurt, full glass of water
Meal 3: Tuna Sandwich on 100% Wheat Bread, salad, 1/2 cup of grapes, full glass of water
Meal 4: Protien Shake, full glass of water
Meal 5: Grilled Chicken with onions. 2 cups of green veggies, full glass of water

Workout for today:

Please share your comments, ask questions, and share your journey.


Here are some pics, starting from my fattest to my most recent

  1. Well I Have chugged 60 ounces of water so far! My eating is going great and my workout is at 7 today.. I feel great!

  2. Hey girl!
    Congrats on starting this blog!
    There is nothing more motivating than having to report to the world on a daily basis!

  3. Thanks for your comments on my blog. I'm so glad I found you :) You look fabulous and your pictures are definitely inspiring! I didn't know that starting on Mondays makes you less successful!!

  4. Hi Melissa!

    Thanks for the post! Yes starting Monday can almost lead to failure. Its like the "New years Resolution" how many people actually follow thru? Not many! I do not have a resolution. I just started hitting my gym and diet hard during the holidays! LOL

    Please come by the blog often and lets help eachother out! Please refer people to my blog.. I would love to have a big team!

    Have a great weekend!

  5. I can totally see the Monday thing being true. Not so much because you start on a Monday, but for people that always start "later", Monday is probably the most common day picked.

  6. Deb that's exactly the point I am making!!
