So sorry...these posts' lately have mainly been about T because J has been so busy with school and life in general, and well...T has been a lazy donkey! haha. and to be honest the 2 phat chicks have not been doing as well as they should and could be doing {hence the no weigh-in wednesday's...T and J are ashamed! and hence no updated pictures of them...because they pretty much just look the exact same haha [[sorry tami]]}. but they did make mini monthly goals that will hopefully help them out a bit! :)

BUT...T found a new hobby that she enjoys. Riding her bike {that she has actually had for quite some time, but only ridden about 5 times hehe} to the gym and doing her workout and then riding it back! It gives T a chance to use her cute bike and at the same time get a little extra workout! :)

Has anyone been faithful about working out or eating healthy these past few weeks? Do you do anything that makes it more fun and enjoyable?

While working out on the elliptical do your feet ever go numb? Not sure if anyone else has experienced it, but T sure does! and it can be really annoying! So T posted this question on one of her livestrong groups and got an answer...yay! It is called "Sleepy foot Syndrome"! She had to laugh...what a name! :) T likes to tell all her family members that she has sleepy foot syndrome and get a little chuckle out of it. It may sound funny, but it is exactly that! When you walk your feet move too...but while on an elliptical your legs move, but your feet don' for some people they may fall asleep or go numb. They say all you need to do is wiggle your feet or move them from heel to toe as you do your workout. T will give it a try and see if it helps any! :) BUT she also thinks it is her shoes. T has been blessed with fred flintstone feet...CHUBBY! haha. So maybe she also needs to get some new, comfy, wide shoes?

Anyways...if you are interested check out the full article here!

Do you know of any good running shoe brands that T should invest in?! :)

mmm mmm good!

The 2 Phat Chicks new FAV salad dressing...Newman's Own Low Fat Sesame Ginger dressing. It is the absolute best salad dressing to use if you want a fabulous tasting, low calorie, salad dressing that will help keep you within your daily calorie intake. With just 35 calories and 1.5 grams of fat for two tablespoons, it simply can’t be beat! And if you are a fan of asian salad dressings, you will love it! oh...and while shopping at the store T & J happened to look at other asian dressings and they were a whopping 125 calories! This one truly can't be beat! :)

So...what is YOUR fav dressing to use while eating ensalada?! (T felt like using one of the few words she learned while working at Costa Vida )

the night time blues.

Do any of you guys ever have the urge to do a workout at 9:45 PM?! Well The 2 Phat Chicks sure did! As they were looking through their blog and how crappy they have done suddenly occured to them that they should do a last minute work out video. So here it goes...yay for night time workouts! :)


Helpful Stuff...

So if you are wanting to count calories there is this really cool website The 2 Phat Chicks use {and hopefully more so again} WWW.LIVESTRONG.COM You can create and account for FREE and join groups that give you the motivation and support you need! Some weigh-in every week and have little weekly challenges...good stuff! :) Another bonus is counting your calories. You put in how much you weigh and how much you want to lose each week and it gives you an idea of how many calories you should consume each week to lose that weight. Then you go to your "daily plate" and look up the food you eat and it keeps track of it for you and how many calories you have left for the day. And you can also track your workouts and how many calories you burned. Awesome, huh?

Search around the website, get to know it, and give it a try! Good luck bloggers! :)

"It's the start of something new..."

[[I'm sure you can finish that song all you High School Musical fans haha]]

T loves looking at other blogs {yep, she's addicted} and she came across this one...this lady has some good tips for women trying to lose weight, which is something we all could use! Anyways...T really liked her post today! It is a quote from The Daily Motivator {which seems like an awesome website. T just might be looking at those daily motivations more often} Here it be:

Today is your opportunity to make progress. Right now is the moment to begin.

If you’re not quite sure how you’ll proceed, go ahead and get started anyway. The way to work out the details is to jump into the work.

Each moment that flows quickly into your life will flow out again just as quickly. While you have it, you can transform that moment into a lasting accomplishment.

Make a little bit of progress, again and again. Soon, you will have created great value.

You can do it, because you are alive and aware and willing to get where you wish to go. Whatever your situation, whatever your circumstance, you can make something positive and valuable out of it.

Choose now to make progress, and allow a positive momentum to take hold. Feel the joy of being the immensely creative person you can surely be.

– Ralph Marston

It fits in perfectly with how T was feeling. After watching The Biggest Loser last night she felt like "today" was going to be the day to start over and get things back on track with her new life!

Love you all! Have a fabulous day...and make TODAY the day to start something new!

and it starts again...

The 2 Phat Chicks are sooo excited for the new season of The Biggest Loser! Can you say motivational?! {I think we will be seeing some more workouts and weight loss in the future for T and J} These contestants have such amazing, but sad stories...needless to say they all seem so awesome! Daniel is definately one lucky kid to get the chance to come back for yet another season! The 2 Phat Chicks would die to have a chance like that to lose so much weight. {yes...probably LITERALLY too haha} Wasn't it sad to see one of the contestants pass out after finishing just ONE MILE!? Sad! T and J don't want something like that to ever happen to them...which is why they need to get healthy and make a life long change!

Lets just say that a BodyBugg is definately on T and J's wish list! If only it didn't cost a butt load! Maybe one day...

Anyways...T and J are definately excited to watch The Biggest Loser each week! Hopefully it will give them that motivation that they need! :)

Their questions for you: Are you a fan? Who is your favorite this season? Who do you think is going to win the whole show and have the title of "The Biggest Loser"? Would you prefer Bob or Jillian as a trainer? and do you have a BodyBugg already?

WHA wHa wha...

Unfortunately, The 2 Phat Chicks plan to stay on track and keep losing weight has failed {hence the lack of last weeks weigh-in}...but hey live and's never to late to get back on track! So, luckily, T has a great friend who was kind enough to give her this great, new, work out DVD that seems simply phenomenal. It's called The Tracy Anderson Method. And lets just say she sure does kick your butt into shape even though it looks like she is practically doing nothing! After doing a mere 2 minutes of the arm workout both T and J thought their arms might possibly fall off! SO...the 2 Phat Chicks new plan is to keep counting calories {or shall we say, re-start counting calories} and to do this fabulous new workout video at least 3 times a week! Let's all hope they can keep on track this time and start seeing results...which reminds them tomorrow is their first day to take their monthly measurements...they have to admit they are a tiny bit nervous! :) Wish them luck!

This is a little clip of what she does...check it out for yourself:


The Dictionary says it all...

1. a person who evades his or her duty or work; shirker.

Ok, Ok...The 2 Phat Chicks have pretty much been AWFUL bloggers! They promise to try {try being the key word here} and be better! :) You just might possibly see a post later today!
