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!!

For My Cheerleaders :-)

Look, my loyal cheerleaders, I finally got a little something made for you. My first attempt & I'm dead tired so forgive me if its not the most beautiful creation ever. Is it possible she's so ugly, she's cute? That's what my son said about her... but what does he know? lol

Anyhow, if you're already an official cheerleader or if you want to become one, grab the cheerleader for your blog. And when that's done, you'll want to be sure to leave me a comment on this post letting me know. Why? Because my official cheerleaders are going to be rewarded when this "little" challenge is over and one lucky cheerleader (randomly selected) is going to receive a special gift from me!

Thursday's workout didn't exactly go according to plan. I had to shorten my workout time and focused primarily on the StairMaster. 200 floors on the StairMaster followed by an easy 4.5 miles on the bike. I chose to end it there because it was an evening workout and I will be getting to the gym at about 8am Friday morning... so I wanted a little recovery time. Maybe its more like my body demanded recovery time because my mind wants to be in that gym every possible minute til this is done.

Oh and a moment of confession before I head off to bed... I ended up in the drive-thru line on my way home tonight... at Jack in the Box. I ordered the Chicken Fajita Pita - which is only 330 calories - and ate it with a couple of mandarin oranges when I got home. It was an okayish choice in a pinch...but grocery shopping is definitely on my priority list.

I'm so glad its almost the weekend! Are you? What fun stuff do you have planned for the weekend?

This weekend my daughter soccer team has advanced to the next level in the state cup - so I'm driving her to soccer on Saturday. 5 hour drive, 1.5 hour game, 5 hour drive home. *insert twirling 'crazy' finger by my forehead here*

My son's got a baseball tournament 1.5 hours north of us so my husband's taking him to that. We'll join him Saturday night.

It's also our 7th anniversary (Of dating) on Saturday so we're going to have to get creative on how to celebrate it among the chaos.

Aren't you glad you asked?! My life is ALWAYS this busy...

I agree with your son! :)

For some reason - Jack in the Box has never sounded good to me.

Your choice didn't sound that bad.

You rocked the stairmaster. Keep it up.
