Memorial Day - Super Chica Style

I had such a great weekend! Loaded with lots of laughter and friends.

This is how I spent my Memorial Day!!

Update on working out post Tri....

It's blah! Angie B is starting a group 'Get Marcy to run 8 miles by November' and if y'all join the group I promise I'll hunt you down and hurt each of you!! :) But if you wanna jog with us you're more than welcome to do so! My goal was to jog a 5k by November and she's somehow got it in her semi-sweet head that I'll be able to jog the Turkey Trot (8 miles) in November!!!

Reverse Trainer day is semi here!! Chadwick asked me to help him train for the swimming portion of a tri. I love being able to spend time with him and I do secretly have to admit that I love making the man WORK IT in the water! I think I understand his 'sickness' there's something so NICE about making someone gasp for air!! LOL However, I have a sneaky suspicion that he'll be a mad skilled swimmer once I'm through with him! But between now and then I'll continue killin' him softly! It's so delicious!

In the mean time I'm back on schedule. As of today my workouts have been moved to 6am! With my busy evening schedule and the lack of desire to work out in the heat I've had to make the change. Early mornings and sweet misty dew how I come!

Weight Loss Update:
I FINALLY made it Weight Watchers on Saturday.
The verdict!
Current Weight: 332.4 lbs
I'm down the 4.8 lbs I gained in April.
I December of 2007 I weighed in at 333.6..... blah!
I rounded my first year of weight loss at 314.4
That means that from August of 2008 to now I've gained 18 lbs!!

Since Chadwick and I stopped working out last year I have noticed a considerable softness happening in my muscles. There's something to be said about weight it! They go hand in hand for sure! A friend and trainer said 'Cardio changes your size while strength training changes your shape' the truth sucks don't it!?!?!

I know this blog has been feast or famine lately. I'll be sure to make more time to post. I miss hearing from y'all!!!

Really, Nicole?!

I hung out with some old college friends on Saturday night. Pictured here is my girl, Nicole. At one time she was pledge director for our sorority, Sigma Lambda Alpha, but now we're SLA free and we're still friends!!! Here's another prime example of God orchestrating friendships. She and I would've NEVER crossed paths had it not been for Him. She's a NIN fanatic! I'm everything BUT!! She's a horror movie with blood and guts I'm a romantic comedy and occasional action thriller. Despite our million differences I heart this girl too!!

Pictured here are Nicole and Myself about to arm wrestle.....I don't even know why she tried!!! HAHA !! As you'll notice she's looking quite pleased and confident with herself.

And, what do we have here? Could it be a struggle? :)

The match never ended.... a winner was never decided.... She's a contender and a CHEATER!!!

Mas Amor!

I love the way God, in his infinite 'Godness', orchestrates all our friendships/relationships/lifeships. We certainly know and serve a God who's in the details! This here is one of my besties! I love this chica in a way down deep kinda way. Sweetness Love!

Ryan Ray Photo


I came across this picture on the net. I sometimes feel this way. Can't even begin to tell you how many times I've caught myself doing the pee pee dance. Going potty can be such a hassle! 

Hopefully this photo will make you laugh!

It's FRIDAY!!!

I've made a conscious decision to work my booty off in the gym this week. It felt so great to get in the gym last night and break a serious sweat. I ran into a friend at the gym on Tuesday and we've decided to keep each other accountable to working out. We're not working out together but doing our own thing in different parts of the gym. Our accountability is to make sure GET TO THE GYM!

Over the course of the last 1 1/2 I've learned that
a) working out (and a few other chores) are like washing's a pain in the rear to get started but once you're doing it, it's not all that bad.
b) I enjoy working out alone. I like the silence. I like the mental down time. As much as I loved having Chadwick as a trainer it was even difficult working out with him. Not that he talked too much, because he's a man of few words, but because of the down time in between sets. During our training time he taught me all about circuit training and I guess I got used to the non stop - hit it till you die/max out then move on the next step workout. I miss it.
c) I've also learned the 80/20 rule. When it comes to weight loss eating well is 80% of the battle!

On another note!
I'm still training for a new triathlon! And, even better news... Chadwick want to tackle a tri too! I'm gonna teach him how to become an efficient swimmer and he'll help me become a more efficient runner. Good times!! I can't wait!

Sad Confession...

I went to the gym yesterday after work.... I can't even begin to tell you how inconsistent I've been!! it was a sad, sad sight!

My sister sweetly asked me last night after I owned a delicious shaved ice from Bahama Bucks "Marce, how much weight have you gained?" I nearly dropped my spoon but it wouldn't have mattered...I had already finished every last bite! Truth sucks, but the truth is that I've gained about 20-25lbs. I haven't been to a weigh in since before my triathlon.

Last confession... I used to be able to bust out about 20-30 push ups like no body's business. Yesterday I was struggling after 15!!!!

***Thanks for calling me yesterday, Uyen. I appreciate the effort in keeping this beast accountable!! Love you!

Friday.....Wednesday.... finally a post

I know I've been a bit quiet these last two weeks. I'm not exactly sure why....too lazy to write? feeling uninspired? feeling blah? feeling distracted and disconnected. In a strange way it sorta feels like a "OK, now what?"

In short my journey continues.....
