In It to Thin It!!!!!!!!! LOL

So Divas I know that my title is tre' horible'! But I thought it was fitting for what I was going to talk about in this blog.  I recently started a weight loss challenge at my job and we are doing a 10-week In It to Thin It Challenge.  Haha. Corny I know but that's all that I could come up with. I am excited about it because there are quite a few people who have signed up and will be participating in this challenge.  There are several different side challenges going on within the main one that make it fun. 

In other news. I have set some goals for my self and will be posting them in my side bar or in an additional page on my blog soon. One of the goals that I set was to loose 10% of my body weight. I have achieved that goal and the reward was for m to purchase a new handbag.  I am obsessed with handbags.  So when I reached my 10% I went in search of the bad that moved me. I need my items to speak to me before I buy them .  Blame it on the musician in me. Well finally after weeks of search I found her. My 10% bag.

I am sooooo freaking happy. I loves it. Yes I do!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
So Now the next milestone to reach is 50 lbs lost.  If you haven't checked out my ticker lately I am only 4 lbs away from losing 50 lbs. I am sooooo stoked. I think that I finally broke through the plateau that I discussed earlier and I am on my way to better numbers on the scale.

Also in other news I tried something new at the gym. I got on the devil's spawn elliptical yesterday. Before when I attempted to do the elliptical there were several cures words exchanged and I usually ended up giving up after about 5 min and several stops looking like this:  
But yesterday by some miracle and prayers from the exercise gods I made it an entire 30 min. Granted there were a couple of stops along the way but I did actually make it the whole 30 min on the elliptical.  I got off this machine feeling like:

I rocked that and I am so proud of my self. Go me!!! GO ME!!!!!
I have talked myself out of so many things that I don't even know my own ability. So Take that elliptical. I made you my BI-OTCH!!!!

Peace and Blessings
