How "The Accidental Fat Chick" Hatched...

Welcome to The Accidental Fat Chick's new online home!

During the summer 0f 2008, I woke up one morning with a drive to live a healthy lifestyle. Since then, I've made many changes and lost nearly 50 pounds. Many of my friends and family members have come to me, asking about what I'm doing & how I'm doing it. While I certainly would never claim to be an expert, I'm happy to share what I've learned along the way.

So after careful thought... "The Accidental Fat Chick" has hatched... with the hope of helping at least one person and to be the accountability I need to finish what I started. :)

Thank you for visiting!!

1/3 Point in Around the World!

This is it... the Around the World Challenge is officially at the 1/3 point. I can't believe how quickly it is going. So how am I doing? Circuit sets I am a little ahead of the game on... The bike I am about 11 miles ahead of where I needed to be by today... The elliptical I am exactly at the 1/3 mark; this is awesome for me because last year its what I was so far behind on that I ended up at the gym for so many hours on Mother's Day. That's where the happy news ends. :( I only have 470 floors of the 800ish I needed on the StairMaster. I'm about 30 sets short of where I needed to be on core sets. And the treadmill and free weights I have made no progress on; the treadmill I'm sort of saving for the second half of the challenge & the free weights I'm procrastinating on because of my sore shoulder. I'm feeling pretty comfortable with my progress so far. Its definitely going to require adding some additional time to my workouts or going twice a day... but I will do it!

Anyone remember the little challenge I was doing with my friend? The 2-4-8-10 Challenge. Well tomorrow is our final measurement day & Tuesday the last weigh in day for it... have to wait & see how it goes. I know we both fell miserably short on hitting the numbers for the gym stuff... which I'm really disappointed about for myself. But I will redeem myself with Around the World.

On the food front, I let the husband bring a pizza into the house tonight. I ate two pieces that were super delicious... and about 600 calories. But considering I'd only had about 300 calories before that & I've only had 60 calories since... I think it'll be okay.

Okay, I think I've bored you with probably the most boring post I've ever written (and hopefully the most boring I ever will, lol) long enough... I'm gonna get some sleep before the fun of tomorrow begins. I promise I have more interesting things to write about tomorrow... like the fact that I'm leaving!

Hmmm... if I dream about a big plate of nachos will it make me gain weight? :)

Great job on your progress with the around the world challenge! You can do it!!!!

I think you did fabulously with the pizza. Moderation is the key. You didn't eat 3 or 4 pieces of pizza, you ate two and you managed your food the rest of hte day to account for it! Learning how do manage your food intake and still indulge in those things we love are really what will get us to the finish line!
