    Hoping to make some Sirius changes and turn my Long(andfat)bottom into a Hotbottom. My life has finally started to calm down with all the work and travel so maybe I can make this stick for more than a few days, lol. Though looking at my schedule I have a crawfish boil on Sunday, so I will have to work hard until then to balance! fa720d86315e12199372bffa3da3fffb.jpg

    6/16: 200lbs. Sweet progress! Previously doing Zumba, but this week I started Beachbody's Insanity. Only on day 4 and it is kicking my butt, but I feel like I'm getting stronger. Not dieting so much as trying to control my portions better, drink more water, and eat better quality foods.
    6/25: 197lbs :) Doing pretty good. This past week I've been a bit off schedule with my workouts but making it up with lots of walking. Also, even though I ate out a few times, I tried to make healthy choices and drink lots of water. Two more pounds before I can move on to CoS :)
