The crinkley wrinklies are back!

Oh the crinkley wrinklies- how I sorta kinda missed you.  You are both a blessing and a curse.

What are the crinkley wrinklies?  Take a balloon, blow it up really big and let the air out.

Then blow it up again really big and let the air out.

Then blow it up again really big and let the air out.

Then blow it up again really big and let the air out.

One last time, blow it up again really big then let the air out.

What do you see?  Crinkley wrinkleys!  These aren’t stretch marks from being pregnant five times, although I have plenty of those, too.  They are, well, a crinkle wrinkle thing on my belly that I’ve gotten each time I lose the twenty pounds I keep gaining back.  I’m trying a couple of things to see if I can get them to go away since Hubby’s not too keen on forking out money for a tummy tuck so hopefully they’ll work.

I’ve lost more inches but not telling how many yet.  I’m also seeing some great biceps forming but am still struggling with the triceps area.  I have fourteen more days till my thing-which-shall-not-be-named is over and  I think not stressing about it anymore has helped a lot.  If I miss a day working out I don’t beat myself up over it.  I’ve done a LOT since the halfway point and am extremely proud of myself.  I no longer have cravings for sweets, junk food or fast food.  I’m not having any withdrawls from quitting soda and am glad my coffee fling was so short lived.  I’m finding energy from the foods I eat instead of the nasty caffeine I’ve been addicted to off and on since I was a kid. My Body By Vi shakes are working better than I thought they would even though I’ve only tried a couple of different recipes so far (click here if you want to join the Body By Vi challenge!)

Lifestyle changes are going great and here to stay!  Now to battle the evil crinkley wrinklies.

  1. Take that crinkley wrinkles!!

    Kick their a$$ 🙂 Kudos for kicking the sweet cravings – only takes 21 days to break a habit and to start a new one – it’s funny the last day in work I was asked (while everyone else was gorging on choco cake and sweets) how come I never eat any of that stuff – there was a few murmurs – he doesn’t eat sweets, he brings in his own lunch blah blah blah -they asked why don’t you eat it?? I answered simply – “because I don’t want to – its pure muck and just drains your body of nutrients and makes you feel like crap”, – I get some funny looks sometimes for refusing to eat all that candy, cake, sweet shite – but does it bother me? No, I’m healthier, happier, more confident and have tons of energy – I’m sure your the same!!

    The funny thing is – everyone always has the same reaction after eating that crap – lazy, tired, lethargic – yet they keep eating it?? Not me and by the sounds of it – not you!!

    So give yourself a big pat on the back for your progress – we have to stop and do that every once in a while!!

    Sorry I started ranting there did I? Wupz!!

    Train hard, expect success, have fun!!


    • I loved your rant! Everything you said is so true. While I heard about and watched other moms snacking on their kid’s Halloween candy, I walked by mine and said, “No thanks!” I did sneak a couple of little Hershey bars but because they were so small I didn’t feel yucky at all. Thanks for commenting and for making me feel even better about my changes. Carrots and celery are my Cheetos and Snickers now. LOL
