Seeing Me on TV

 

 

Its such a surreal experience to see yourself on national TV… even though I severely wish for a “Crtl+Atl+Delete” at times, I did love every second. And the best part…I look nothing like that anymore. Even more, if I think about the mindset I had while filming, the relationship I had with food and physical activity, it does lend credibilty to the thought “Mind over Matter”.

Can’t wait to share the new “me” with you lovely folks.

Love n Lollipops,

Ricki Lake’s Bridal Bootcamp — week 5 (Reflect)

WEEK 5

I just want to reflect on how life changing these last few weeks has been.

Not only am I embracing a healthier lifestyle, I have never felt better! I’m more focused, more confident, and ready to embrace my dreams. I’m still reeling that I had a chance to meet one of my personal heroes, Ricki Lake!! I’ve loved her since Cry Baby, and I will love her forever for being fearless and a role model to all the girls living on the curvier side of life. Before taping the show, I ran into Ricki outside of the green room, and I had to physically restrain myself from picking her up and doing a spin hug. Since that would’ve been really awkward and illegal, Continue reading

Ricki Lake’s Bridal Bootcamp — week 4 (PLATEAU HELL)

WEEK 4 – 14lbs lost

I finally did it. I reached the dreaded plateau. I worked my butt out all week and outside of my wedding cake tasting (yum!) ate really healthy. In theory I did everything I was suppose to, so why in the H-E-Double Hocky Sticks didn’t I lose any weight this week?

Believe me, I’m still scratching my head. My dear and wonderful finance who is supporting me on the journey to living better cut soda out of his diet (something we both did) and now has a six pack. *looks down at own belly and sees no abs* Jigga What?!? )

UGH! This week has been a little confusing Continue reading

Ricki Lake’s Bridal Bootcamp — week 3 (Blooming Onion)

Week 3 – 13.5 lbs lost

I’m blooming!

Think less like a flower, and more like a prepubescent 13 year old boy. It’s about to get a little TMI in here, but I am one stinky lady!

Eating healthier means more robust breath and more burping. And now that I am working out, it seems that I am in a constant state of sweating. Craig (aka my trainer, aka my torture master, aka cutie with a booty) says this is totally normal and that it’s a sign that my metabolism is on the rise. He thinks it’s great. I just think it’s Continue reading

Ricki Lake’s Bridal Bootcamp — week 2 (MuthaEFFIN Ribs)

WEEK 2  –  9.8lbs lost

I didn’t think it would be possible but this week is actually tougher than last week. I’m in the process of detoxing my body off its sugar and carb dependency and I REALLY miss waffles…and steak. In fact, my secret fantasy is a steak and waffle sandwich with a mash potato drizzle and a box of bacon flavored chocolate for dessert. YUM.

Temptation to cheat on my diet was a living force this week, one that would even make Yoda Continue reading

Tips from Hollywood’s Hottest Trainer (Craig Ramsay)

Look at my cutie-with-a-booty trainer, high kicking it on Ricki Lake. — How this man makes me work out so hard and I still don’t hate him is a mind boggling miracle.

Side Note about the video:  Continue reading
