Day 3- Ut Oh!

Now that I cheated, I feel like just giving up, I took pictures of Day 1 of me in a bikini and they are so BAD that hopefully they can keep me motivated. I definitely feel better and have more energy

I won a free brunch at this new casino in town on Sunday and that's all I can think about... More to come and hopefully food pictures, one thing I can say it I'm cooking a lot more. 2 days in a row!

DAY 2- I made it to day 2

Wow I cant believe I made it through day 1, Once I left work, I went to yoga and then came home and made a salad (half of spicy boca patty, 6 tomato pieces, red wine vinegar), Lean Cuisine, and vanilla almond herbalife bar and went to sleep....

Today was a little harder

I had my shake for breakfast

and then.... I have a subway veggie patty for lunch (wheat bread lettuce onions avocado salt pepper oil vinegar). I really shouldn't have but if I had to cheat that would be the place to do it.

When I got home i made tofu tacos, I didn't have a full tortilla I cut 1/8 out and chopped it up with tofu, salsa, avocado, 2 small pieces of shredded cheese,

Also my boyfriend and I shared a small cheese and jalapeno tamale from whole foods.

I did have Chobani blueberry yogurt with fresh raspberry and black berries, and a vanilla almond herbalife bar.

Well after that I cheated, I had a tastycake e-klair pie from Wawa, a pack of gushers, and this graham cracker peanut butter thing. I CHEATED, hopefully the more I say it, the less I will do it.

Day One- Getting past Lunch!

Me at 182.0 my heaviest

My Mom and I(at 135.0) 
I am Ashley, 24, work full time, go to school part time, I learning the automotive repair business from my father and hope to take over the family repair business. But that's not what this is for...

I lost about 30ish pounds starting from Thanksgiving (Nov 2011) to about beginning/middle of January 2012. I went from 165.0 to 133.0 using Herbalife. I have kept the weight off for the most part but this morning I woke up and I am 145.5 pounds. WOW. This Stinks. 

My clothes are getting tighter and more importantly my life is revolving around food. I work 7:30-5:30 Monday-Friday and 8:00am-2:00pm on Saturday. I hated to work out before I started Herbalife (, once I got more energy and started being more active... I loved working out, I did Bikram's yoga and got a membership to Planet Fitness and it was great. I drink two shakes a day and have some types of protein and veggies for dinner. 1200 calories and 100g of protein is my daily goal. 

Well we moved into a new place and its inconvenient to cook because we share the kitchen. So we just eat out every night. That combined with my love of cupcakes, cake pops, cakes, just anything sweet makes for a bad mix. I have been dealing with life issue as well so I just kind of had this "I don't care" I'm just going to eat motto. I even made a food log and started writing down everything I eat and I got so depressed on how much I had been eating, I just ate more. 

Well everyday this week I've tried to get back on track and I failed. Today I had a shake and vitamins for breakfast, the rest of my day will go like this:

Morning Shake 210 calories and 26g protein (already had)
Blueberry Chobani 140 calories 14g protein 
Lunch Shake 210 calories 26 g protein

depending on how hungry I am I will have a snack no later than 2:30
Vanilla Almond Protein Bar 140 calories and 10 g protein

GO TO Bikrams YOGA 6:30PM-8:00PM 

Shower, eat a Lean Cuisine 200-300 calories and 16-21g of protein

I am trying to familiarize myself with blogs so thanks for your patience, I want to be 120lbs after this is over so my journey begins here. 12:00 is approaching!
