Guest Post 3- AMY!!!

It's THURSDAY! I love Thursdays, no reason in particular but I just love um.
It's also the third day of my guest post ladies you can read the other two here, and here.
Today is my friend Amy.
She's trying the whole Paleo thing just like I am, so we text each other about how much we miss our cheese.
She's a busy mom with a adorable kids, and amazing hair.
She's also running her second half soon, and fundraising for St.Jude's, any dollar helps!

Hi dolls!  I'm so thrilled to be guest posting for Candra.  She's my girl.  We've been friends for just a short time, but we've gone over Paleo and other crazy ideas we've come up with to try and lose the gut!!! My favorite was her suggestion to try pan friend bananas with almond butter.  OH EM GEE!  That was like the best thing to touch my mouth during that Paleo diet.  (get your minds out of the gutter!)

Paleo was short lived for me, I decided to carb load for no reason other than because I was missing my damn cheese and potatoes, last Friday, and with the flu invading my house it's been down hill from there.  I'm on a constant yo-yo.  I'm good, pumped, motivated and then some thing will happen that will take over my life and I just lose control.

I need to prioritize.  Prioritize my healthy first.  And that's the plan, soon as I'm done with this flu from hell!  Has it hit you this season? Oy vey!  Dying!  And worse is the kids getting it.  Anyway, you probably don't want to hear about that... you might catch it just reading about it.

So for those of you that don't know me, I'm Amy from The Diary of a Fat Mommy.   I look forward to the day that I can change my name to The Diary of a Fit Mommy!  :)  One day.

In March, I started my blog and weight loss journey and lost about 20 lbs and a ton of inches in 3 months.  After that I hit a major unmotivated phase and it started creeping back.  I've run one half marathon and am running my second this coming Sunday!!!  I'm so nervous, excited, and pumped!

I have some goals that I've set that I plan on nailing over the next 10 weeks, most importantly losing 10 lbs!  I've also decided to start Dr. Oz's 2 Week Rapid Weight Loss Diet after my half marathon, this way I can get things going and kind of detox my system.  Then I will continue with a clean diet, that includes beans and some grains.  I need those in my life.

I feel motivated, I just don't have any energy thanks to the flu.  I have a doctor's appointment this morning, so wish me luck!

What do you do to stay committed?  What are some of your weight loss goals?

Come check out my blog, if you can deal with my crazy.  I'm all over the place, ALL. THE. TIME!
