We're Playing BAS-KET-BALL...

Kurtis Blow - Basketball

So, this is gonna be short and sweet. Basketball is my favorite sport, I like the way they dribble up and down the court.

Kurtis Blow knew what he was talking about!

The past two days of boot camp have been AMAZING. I have pushed myself HARD in preparation of both the Holiday feasts about to be eaten and also just because...I'm COMPETING! I love it. I can't help it.

I have SO much to say but honestly I have way too much to do. My mother will be here tomorrow morning. One more day of boot camp left before the break. A bunch of the girls are going to get together and do some Zumba and basketball (which we all learned that we LOVE in BC) over the break so it should be a good time! I know I am going to have to get some extra work outs will be trying but ...I can't lose what I've come so far to gain! =) Or is it ...I can't gain when I've come so far to lose? Eh, either way, you get the point!

Sidebar: I MADE MY CHRISTMAS GOAL! I actually made it yesterday but I'm not going to update until my official weigh-in day of Monday because honestly? I think I may gain over the weekend. Well no I don't. I trust myself but my weigh-in day is specific and it needs to stay that way. I'll be happy to just maintain!

Studies say that everyone gains 5-15 lbs between Thanksgiving and New Years Eve....ummm I am SO not going to be part of that statistic...Let's keep it moving guys! HEALTHY INTO THE NEW YEAR!!!


On a side note: I wanna say congrats to my girl Ro - you are doing amazing! Keep up the hard work, it is paying off for your health in the long run and I am just SO proud of you man!

Also, to all of you who read my blog...may your Christmas's be BRIGHT as all get out and may you enjoy your time with family and friends and LOVE. During this time of year, gifts mean nothing to me. Just love. And it's so weird because when I was little I used to screammmmmmmm at my mom (def not my dad haha) and stomp to my room when I didn't get what I wanted or ENOUGH of what I wanted. I was such a freaking brat! Anyway, the moral of this story is, you can grow and change. Today I love nothing more than giving and watching people's expressions. I love my family beyond belief. I seriously...I can't even put it into words...everything I do (including this blog and losing weight) is FOR them and BECAUSE of them. I adore them. Sooooooooooo

I hope you share LOVE, LAUGHTER and TIME with your family this season. RELISH it, you never know when it is time to say goodbye.

May God Bless you alllllllllllllll!


ps. if you haven't bought Mariah Carey's Merry Christmas II You CD yet ..umm what the heck are you waiting for?! You need to start playing it NOW, or come to my hood and I'm sure you'll see me somewhere with the windows rolled down BLARING it for the world to hear!!


  1. Kristin I am so excited for you to have come this far!!! You will be fine during the holidays & your fav food & you have the right attitude, portion control. I have had to stop myself for taking *another* bite of something when I am full. It was just a *habit* to go on eating which I find is not that much of a problem anymore. I dont' like to feel full anymore. Feeling just right is fine with me.
    Thank you it was great fitting into jeans I haven't been able to get into ! The best feeling :) I am not going to mess it up by over eating just to go back to not being able to fit in them comfortably. *sp*
    So enjoy your holidays, enjoy your mom <3 & thank you for allowing me follow you on this journey & helping me at the same time.
    Ok I woke up at 3 am for water & now going back to bed.
    Merry Christmas & God Bless.
    Love ya Ro xoxox

  2. Love.....what a good message. God bless.
