HAPPY 2011!

so i told yall that i would sumarize my WW meeting here is what i got out of it :)

the topic was "PointsPlus 2011...A Second Honeymoon!" it was all about how we can be starting over, in a good way! :) and how to set achievable goals this year. my leaders name is JoJo and i absolutely LOVE her! she is by far one of the best leaders i have ever had at WW (remember, this is like my 4th time coming back!) but anyways, she started off with a quote that said, "An optimist stays up until midnight to see the New Year in. A pessimist stays up until midnight to make sure the old year leaves." -American Author Bill Vaughn. I need to be that optimist! :) I am excited for the new year to be here and to make those changes that will last! And i am going to take with me the stuff i have learned from in 2010.

Then she went on to tell us how to set our goals. And here is what a WINNING OUTCOME should look like:
  • positive

  • specific

  • within your control

  • a good fit with your life

i like it! :) so for my weight loss new years resolution i am going to say NO SODA (including diet) ! positive, because it will help me be healthier (check) specific (check) within my control, i've done it before for a whole year :) (check) and a good fit for my life (check)

and for my personal i haven't quote decided. i am either going to do 365 Days of Pictures or write in a journal every day. and i think both of those would pass the winning outcome check list :)

I am just excited for the new year! i know i am still not going to be perfect, but it gives me a chance to start fresh and to try and make positive changes in my life :)

the only think i am worried about is tonight new years eve party with the familia and friends :/ i know there is going to be LOTS of yummy food and it is going to be a struggle to try an eat healthy. but for my appetizer i am bringing fruit with a fruit dip and fruit is free on WW. yay for trying to be healthy :) haha. and i am not going to have the mentality i had last year of "eat, drink and be merry for tomorrow we DIET!" :) haha. i need to change that way of thinking...because "starting tomorrow" on my diet has never worked for me and i need to make the changes TODAY!

anyways, i hope you all have a goal in mind for the NEW YEAR! Let's give ourselves a chalenge and something to work at and accomplish!

and i will leave with the quote i left with at WW.

"The greatest thing you have is the 24 hours in front of you. The past is gone, the future is distant. Today you can succeed! Set a goal you can achieve within the next 24 hours." -Joann Pillifant, WW Leader

*my 24 hours goal is going to be: write everything i put in my mouth down. because then that will help me visualize how much i have ate so i don't overeat at the party*

Dear Bed,

You are so warm and cozy and i, of course, LOVE YOU...but you make it really hard for me to want to get out of bed at 6 in the morning and go the the gym...especially on a rainy, cold day! But i did...just 20 minutes later ;) So thanks for pushing me out.

Tay Tay

*walked for an hour on the treadmill and accomplished 3.28 miles*

So yesterday wasn't a completely successful day, but it also wasn't a complete failure :) always a plus. One of my goals is to track everything i eat...which has been a real struggle for me. And actually i am suppose to even find the PointsPlus values for Weight Watchers, which i never do. (yea, i act like i don't even know what the program is. hehe) but yesterday i tracked!!! woohoo. didn't figure out the points (and i know for certain i would have gone way over), but i wrote everything down! GO ME! here is what my day looked liked:

(B) orange

(L) leftover turkey soup
12 saltine crackers
light balsamic vinegarette

(S) 4 pumkin cookies
1 chocolate dipped pretzal

(D) 3 chicken roll-up's
scoop cream of chicken
1/2 C white rice w/ some butter

(S) TOO MANY peanut butter M&M's (my downfall)
popcorn with butter and salt
[[me, the marmy and seesters watched "Eat, Pray, Love"...which i actually liked! but involved too many treats]]

So i am proud that i actually tracked. Today, maybe i can track and figure out atleast a few of the points that i ate. i am taking baby steps here :)

oh and on another plus...i lost 1 pound yesterday at my weigh-in! woohoo! i was pretty shocked to see that number since i ate AWFUL that week during Christmas vacay. (i was actually expecting to be depressed again and gain some more) but the previous week aunt flow gave me a visit and i had gained a whopping 3.6 i think it balanced out. the topic at WW yesterday was on new years goals and how we are going to make this year different than our i will do another post on that :)

anywhooooo...time to get ready for work! i will check in later.

It's beginning to look alot like...

NEW YEARS! :) which is that wonderful time of the year to reevaluate our lives and set new goals. We are so pumped and excited to actually achieve our goals this year...and we don't want anyone telling us we can't. this year we are banning CAN'T from our vocabulary! There have been many different things that have forced us to take action and we each have different motivators to help us along. Like Taylor's desire to go on a cruise/find a HOT boyfriend (wink wink) or Jonni's plan to move to Hawaii next year and be seen in a bathing everyone!

Now, let's just say for the past 3 years we have been "planning" a family Biggest Loser...but it's actually going to happen this year! :) The money is going in to the pot and we are weighing/taking measurements. woot comes the new and improved skinny clark family!!

So, you will be hearing back from us soon. no more weigh-in's...but just our every day to day life and challenges. be prepared for our wonderful words of wisdom ;)

love you all...

Sooooo...if i started over with this silly thing...would anyone even read it?! i just need something that might motivate me again. i need a real goal to work towards...because i am slaking major over here! :/


Friday, October 8, 2010

i'm so excited, and i just can't hide it!

...and it's because me and jonni are starting this so called "journey" over again together!! :) last night i told jonni that i was sick of being chubby and i wanted to look HOT! ((and let's be's kinda for a guy! hahaha)) so jonni said that we are going to do this together. seriously, losing weight and sticking to any goals is so much easier when you have a partner in crime to do it with! :) so we told eachother that we are going to eat healthy and exercise and then every day we are going to call eachother and spill the beans as to what we did and what we accomplished! woohoo...we are going to do this! we are gunna be two hot mamas!!! ;) haha.

and this morning we have already been texting eachother and giving eachother encouragement. i told her that i was too tired to wake up at 6 and go to the gym since i had a late night and she just reassured me that i had tonight and the whole day to still get some exercise in :) i love her! and we made it a goal today to write everything down we eat so we can call and tell eachother. yay.

and let's just leave this post with this adorable boy!! ;) ((i can't get enough of him lately! i want his CD))

Wednesday, September 1, 2010

Why hello there... you remember me?! oh yesh, it is T! :) haha. I know, i know...i am a major slacker with the blog and i WANT to be good. i will try a little harder :) hehe.

anyways...on to my 3 week (?) update! it's been a while. But things are going good over in T's world :) well for the past week they have been. i have to be honest, i was slacking off major the 2 weeks before and at 2 of my WW weigh-in's i gained 1 lb one week and 1.2 another. i felt really crummy and knew that i had to get my butt in gear...and that my friends is exactly what i did! :) it was like i had a new mindset and willpower to do this awful thing we call losing weight!! ;) i was really sad because my partner in crime, whom you all know, J left that day for college. {{p.s. i am trying to get her to still be a part of the blog. don't you think it would be fun to see the perspective of a college student and her journey of not gaining the 'freshman 15'? yea, i think so too! persuade her to do so :) }} But i want to be a skinny 'bi' when she comes home for Christmas! haha. and i know that i can do it :)

So here are my stats for the last 3 weeks:
week 12- 251.4 lbs (+1.2)
week 13- 252.4 lbs (+1)
week 14- 247.8 lbs (-4.6!!!)

can i get a HECK YES?!!? i was sooo excited to see that -4.6 lbs!!!! i had a good week and i think it was well deserved. actually, that was one of my first big numbers i lost while doing WW for 14 weeks. i couldn't stop smiling. one, that puts me in the 40's! and two, i lost 5%! woohoo. My next weight loss goal is 10% of my body weight, which is another 13 lbs. i can do that! 5 lbs at a time :)

this week at my weight watchers meeting {{which by the way i LOVE ww. i think it is an amazing program! each week truly gets me through to the next}} it was about moving more and being more active. i actually do love working out. i feel so much better and seem to have more energy throughout the day. they were talking about how exercise doesn't have to mean GYM, but i personally love the gym. i think having a gym membership pushes me to go and gives me that time by myself to just think about what i really want. it gives me confidence...because when i first started i felt SO stupid at the gym. i felt like everyone was looking at me and judging me. but now i could give a rats butt. haha. i wear what i want, i do what i want, and i don't feel embarrassed! :)

Here i am after just going to the gym this morning. yes, i look like a tomato {{and that was even after about 5 minutes haha}}
i am also so excited because i am following the c25k program with my friend camilla!!! :)well, she is in utah, and i am in cali but we text eachother after each workout and see how it went. i love having a buddy because it makes me more accountable. like this morning i wanted to turn my alarm off, but i knew that i needed to do it and i knew that camilla would be texting me :) hehe. so i went and i did it! i thought i was going to die today, but i pushed through and finished! you really do feel so good after you accomplish something you didn't think you could do. i love the c25k program because it is just 3 days a week for 9 weeks. they say within 9 weeks you should be able to run a 5k. woohoo!! i need to find a date for a race and sign up for it :) right now i am on week 2 day 2....which is a warm up walk for 5 minutes, 90 seconds of jogging and 2 minutes of walking for 20 minutes. it's not too bad, just for some reason today i felt like dying! but i didn't! and to me that shows that we are capable of doing SO much more than we think we can!!!

anyways, i am excited for this week and to see the amount i lose next week {{yay for positive thinking haha}}

Do any of you have exciting news you want to share with us?! please share in the comments :)

i hope all you lovely phat chick lovers have a fabulous week!!!!!! :)

weigh-in wednesday: week 10 & 11

{{or should i say "friday". hehe.}}
I know, i know...didn't we just commit to writing like every single day just a few weeks ago and the very next day we failed?! haha. I have been slackin...MAJOR. But i came back to give you an update on my weekly weigh-in's. And ehhh is all i have to say! haha. I don't know what it is, but i just have not had motivation these past 2 weeks. and i was so excited to get in the 40's. I wasn't working out regularly and i was eating awful! BUT this last week in my WW meeting the topic was on Progress vs. Perfection. And you know what...i have made progress from when i first started WW and especially looking back, from when i first came back home from utah 2 years ago (i've lost about 20-25 lbs) Here is a picture to prove it. New Years Eve 2009. yikes!
i know that this is not going to be an easy journey...but i know that i have to make it a LIFELONG one! i am honestly going to stay with WW and go the the meetings for the rest of my life. {i've commited to it} i know that if i don't the weight will just creep right back on! So why not embrace this journey and enjoy the slow changes that i am making :o) i know that i will get my 100 pounds that i want to loose...when is just the question! ...and i am fine with however many years or months that is going to long as it is sometime! :o)

So here are my stats for the last 2 weeks:

SW: 260.8 lbs

CW: 250.4 & 250.2 lbs (i lost .2 lbs each week)

TWL: 10.6 lbs

And to be honest...the start of this week hasn't been too great either. I have already gone over my weekly 35 extra points. But my goal is to write down all of my mini goals and big goals for my future! i think it's a very important thing to do and i have yet to do it :o)

So here's a happy 'week 12' to all of my beautiful phat chick lovers!!

weigh-in wednesday: week 9 results

yay...i followed through with my goal last week, which was to do one hour of cardio each day [[minus sunday]]....and i did just that! :o) Somedays i went to the gym and did an hour of walking on the treadmill {which totally gets tiring!} day i did a 5K race and walked that...and one day i walked a mile long trail, which was totally hard! {{pictures to come of those events}} I am also trying to hit 10, 000 steps in a day and the days that i wore my bodybugg i exceeded that goal! It felt good! So all of my hard work paid off. Although i know if i would have written/tracked my food down better i could have lost even more, oh well!! So next week i hope to finally break the 50's and get down to the 40's!!! But this week i lost 2.6 lbs!

Here are my stats for the week-

SW: 260.8 lbs
CW: 250.6 lbs
TWL: 10.2 lbs [about a lb. a week]

And i am not sure what i want my goal for this week to be. I will come up with one and post it later on :o)

Have a fabulous week everyone!!

weigh-in wednesday: week 8 results

wow...this past week was not a good one. i didn't follow through with my weekly goal of tracking everything that i ate. but somehow i lost an undeserving 1 pound! haha. i'll take it...but i know that i have to do better this week! because i want to feel good and deserving of my weight loss...and make healthier lifestyle choices overall!

Last night me, lauren, matt, jonni and our friend cameron went to a Dodger game. It was really fun and we actually got alot of walking in :o)

and then this morning i went to the gym and walked on the treadmill for an hour at a brisk pace. it felt GREAT! :o) i wanted to start wearing my bodybugg again today because i am going to try and walk 10,000 steps in a day [[and i want to see how many calories i am burning]], but it was dead from not wearing it for so at this moment it is being re-charged. so hopefully that will get me moving a little more too!

so here are T's stats for the week-

SW: 260.8 lbs
CW: 253.0 lbs
TWL: 7.8 lbs

My goal for this week is to get 1 hour of cardio in a day [[minus sunday]] totally achievable!

what is your goal for the week?! :o)


Sunday, July 18, 2010

Determination is key J's new necklace. You must always keep it close to your heart and never forget it...or else you will be locked out of your house. OR in this simile, fat forever!! hahaha.
So, we are DETERMINED to lose weight for good! :) To help us lose this weight we are determined to blog every day, and keep weight loss in our minds. We are determined to accomplish our short/long term goals! (post on that coming soon) We are determined to exercise more. We are determined to help motivate eachother. And we are determined to look goooood...and get those hot boys we are dreamin' about! ;)

weigh-in wednesday: week 7 results

I was pretty proud of myself this past week. I tracked all of my food except saturday night and sunday (and i didn't completely stick to my ww points, but that's ok!) and it paid off! :o) i LOST this week! woohoo!

SW: 260.8 lbs
CW: 254.0 lbs
TWL: 6.8 lbs [[almost a pound a week...i'll take it!]]

It really does make you feel proud when you accomplish something and stick to the goal that you had in mind! :o) The only bad thing is that for the past 2 days i HAVEN'T been tracking (eeek :/ ) how can you do so good one week and then just fall the next? maybe because i actually saw a loss and felt like i didn't need to work as hard...even though i know that i need to, completely! So, my goal this week, again, is going to be TRACK EVERYTHING DOWN! [[i know i can!]] I want to master journaling my food before i move on to anything else...because i feel like it is the most important. So here's to a successful week! :o)

*Tell me in the comments what your goal this week is...scale related or non scale related!!


Wednesday, July 7, 2010

weigh-in wednesday: week 6 results

Yup...definitely how i felt weighing in at Weight Watchers yesterday. BUT, it made me really think about what i want! ...and that is to succeed and be healthy!

I am going to do something i never thought i would do...and that is to actually post my weight on here! (eek!!!) I have always hated telling people my weight, but my friend jon was in town (and as a side note he has lost over 70 pounds!!! he looks amazing!) and he told me that the only way he felt accountable was by telling all his students his weight and posting it on the board each week. i think that when you know people know how much you weigh you want to lose it even more!! so hopefully that will be my case and it will work for me, because i have been slacking! :o)

So my starting weight on weight watchers was...
SW: 260.8 lbs (yikes!)
and my current weight is...
CW: 256.6 lbs
for a total weight loss of...
TWL: 4.2 lbs

the week before i had lost a total of 8.0 lbs, but with jon and ally in town i lost control. i seriously ate whatever the heck i wanted (and took seconds and thirds. haha) and gained 3.8 lbs this week. (so sad) My WW leader asked me some questions and told me to only think of this week as a learning experience and to take something from it. i think what i learned was that even though i got off track i shouldn't have had the attitutde of "well i know i am going to gain weight and i've already done i might as well eat this ice cream." i could have just started over and done better the next day.

Also last night i watched "Losing It With Jillian". i LOVE that show!! To me she is so inspiring and really knows how to help out people and their families. if only i could have her visiting our family for a week! :o) it is SO amazing to see these families transformations in just 6-8 weeks. it gives me hope that i can do it too! ...and i know i is just going to take some doing on my part!

So i want all you chubby followers to keep me accountable!! :o) This week my goal is to track EVERYTHING i eat! ...i know that by doing that i will see a big weight loss on the scale next week!

Hope you all have a fabulous day and week...and find a goal that YOU can accomplish this week!! :o)

fun fact friday...

Not sure how "fun" this fact is...but it is an interesting one at that!

T loves going to Costco with her mom, sisters and niece (and yes they have little matti saying she wants to go to costco and get sampees...aka samples. l0l. maybe we go there too often?). And often times we love visiting the lovely food court which is located right after the check out stands :o) and i mean why not just buy a hot dog and's only a buck fifty?! haha. it always comes down to the money, right? "i'll upgrade to the large fry instead of the regular since it's only 60 cents more...even though we probably only need the regular" {haha...story of my life} Sooo...T heard that costco food court had nutritional facts for all their food...and decided to take a look a it. YIKES! Let's just say she has to use the E-Tools food calculator because the paper points finder for ww didn't go high enough. l0l. So next time you check out at costco and see that $1.50 hot dog and drink or $1 churro...remember these calories and ww points! :o)

(ww points) item (cal/fat/fiber)

(15) slice combo pizza (680/29/4)
(16) slice cheese pizza (700/28/3)
(14) slice pepperoni pizza (620/24/3)
(13) hebrew national hot dog (550/34/2)
(16) chicken caesar salad (670/40/7)
(17) chicken bake (770/25/2)
(19) turkey wrap (810/38/7)
(6) fruit smoothie (290/0/1)
(9) california churro (410/18/3)
(22) ice cream bar (870/65/5)
(8) berry sundae (410/0/1)
(8) yogurt (390/0/0)

interesting...huh?! is there anything on this list that surprised you? for T it was pretty much all of it haha. but what really got her was the turkey wrap. It seems like a healthier choice to get the turkey wrap, when actually it is the highest ww points and calories! crazy :o)


Wednesday, June 9, 2010

weigh-in wednesday: week 2 results!

Not gunna lie...T didn't have the best week on weight watchers this week. No writing food/points down...and seester, Ally, was down visiting for J's high school graduation {eek!} that i kinda just ate whatever i wanted :/ although i did try to be good for the last few days and i was still good about my workouts. {gotta find the positive in things i guess} So i still went to my meeting yesterday [[expecting to gain]] and i was pleasantly surprised!!

a LOSS of 1.2 lbs!
for a total of 4.8 lbs lost.

I love my ww leader...and he told me that next week we are definitely going to be celebrating my 5 pounds! Honestly i don't care how fast i lose this long as i make lifestyle changes and stick to them!! :)

National Running Day- take 2!

T and J are proud to announce that they actually followed through and went running! :) well sorta...they ran for 5 minutes total...and even that little amount made them sweaty and out of breath. But atleast they did it! Now all the 2 phat chicks have to do is make it a habit!! and don't you will happen!! :)

Here is T and J's 'National Running Day" collage. And dang...doesn't J look like a SKINNY chick ;)

p.s. this is what T cooked up for breakfast and it was mighty d-e-l-i-s-h-! 2 scrambled eggs with hot sauce, seasoning, bell pepper, green onions, spinach and lots of yummy ooey-gooey cheese!!...all topped on a whole wheat sandwhich thin :P {{8 WW points}}


weigh-in-wednesday, week 1 results...

Weight loss has been an on-going battle with me in my life. I think i have been chubby since the third grade and ever since then have never really felt good about myself. Sometimes i feel like i have confidence, (i think more so when i am around people i am comfortable with) but i know that if i lost weight and became healthy i would feel SO much better about myself. I mean image really is a big can't say that people aren't judged by the way they look...everyone does it, it is human nature. So i am so excited to say that i have taken the step in the right direction and joined Weight Watchers and have been making healthier choices in every day life!! (and it feels good!) woo hoo :) and it showed this week on the scale! (which is also a hard thing for me because i am so use to weighing on my scale at home pretty much every single day. but i told myself that i would wait until tuesdays to be excited, or sad, about the number i see since your weight really does fluctuate from day to day)


week 1: loss of 3.6 lbs

Total WL: 3.6 lbs

i am definitely happy with that number on the scale! :) i can't wait to go to my meeting next week and see what the results are!

*written by T
National Running Day!

T was seen running 5 minutes today at the gym, in 1-minute increments...slowly but surely she will get there! and she just might go running around her neighborhood later tonight with J!


Monday, May 31, 2010

hello again!

so lets just begin by saying...THE 2 PHAT CHICKS ARE THE WORST BLOGGERS EVER! it has been a more than appropriate length of time from our last blog. and we are so sorry! we fully understand that this journey of weight loss is incredibally hard, and since our last post we havent done much more in losing weight. So now, T has decided to go to Weight Watchers meetings and will be doing it right along side her, just not attendig the meeting.So we have a renewed vigor to lose weight and be good again :] From this point forward, we will be doing weigh-in-wednesdays and possibly favorite-fridays with our favorite recipies, snacks, websites, songs, etc. so look forward to our new found journey faithful chubby readers!

{sorry i didn't take any pictures of my own...and this one looks much prettier than mine! haha}

So last night I decided to try out this recipe: Lemon Herb Zucchini Fettuccine [click the link to get the recipe and make it yourself!] from "Our Best Bites". It was DELISH!!! I will definately be having the leftovers for lunch today! :o)

I went on the Livestrong today and put the recipe in the recipe builder. I found out there was about 589 calories per serving, which was a 1/4 of the batch. Not too bad! and if you added more cheese it would be a little more, but still not a ton! Then just add a few slices of french bread to menu and you have yourself a nice, healthy dinner! {or so i think}

Where's T and J?!?!


What is with The 2 Phat Chicks...they have these great ideas and goals and just can't seem to find the motivation to stick with them. They aren't doing AWFUL by any means, just not being the best they could be right now. {what a shame!} So this week both T and J's mini goal is going to be:


Even if they mess up a little...write everything down and keep track of their intake. Sounds like a good goal to me! :o)

and tonight T is going to try a new recipe! woo hoo! look forward to Lemon Herb Zucchini Fettuccine. Mmmm...sounds quite delish, right?!

Hope all our 'phat chick lovers' have a splended day! :o)

*p.s. currently listening to them right now!

Chocolate Covered Bananas!

'The 2 Phat Chicks' found a new dessert to make...AND it's not too bad in calories! :) Chocolate covered bananas! T found the closest amount of calories per half banana on THIS site. about 165 calories! Not too shabby :)

*Half Banana
*Ounce of dipping milk chocolate
*Crunched up peanuts
(or you could use granola, sprinkles, coconut, etc.)

*Cut a medium sized banana in half.
*Stick a skewer inside the banana.
*Freeze the banana for about an hour.
*Melt the chocolate and dip banana.
*Put whatever topping on banana. (quickly, or it starts to dry!)
*Put them back in the freezer and when completely frozen (They only did theirs for an hour or so and they were not completely froze. They suggest freezing them overnight.)...EAT IT UP! :)

Week ONE Recap...

Lets do a little recap of the 'Two Phat Chicks' first week after the start of a New Year!

It feels like it has been a crazy week for T and J...starting back up at school for J after a 2 week Christmas break and a few days off at the salon for T. But I don't think it really was too just feels like one of those weeks for them. They have been trying to accomplish their goals, and slowly but surely they will get there. Like the saying goes, "Slow and steady wins the race!" :o) The 'Two Phat Chicks' truly want to win that race!!

Starting with were her goals she set to reach fitness goals:
•Make weekly/monthly goals pertaining to my weight loss. [half check]{{this week she set the goal of drinking atleast 8 cups of water before having diet coke or anything else. She completed that goal about 3 days out of the week. I think it is going to be her goal again for THIS week!}}
•NO SWEETS! [fail] {{when setting this goal T and J had in mind really 'desserts'...but even then it is just too hard to pass up home-made peach cobbler! haha. So i think they are changing that goal to 'desserts' once a week.}}
•Work out atleast 4 days a week for an hour. [check!] {{she has been doing very good on this one. Although sometimes she didn't complete a full hour of cardio because her body was just so very tired. I still believe she accomplished this one}}
•Blog about my weight loss journey on "The Chubby Diaries" atleast twice a week. [fail (i think)] {{yea...T hasn't been too good at this. Let's be honest, when she gets home from being at the salon all day she doesn't feel like spending time writing...but it is going to be a goal!}}

So all in all T had a half successful week! haha. She really needs to start eating healthier and sticking to set calories. AND T wants to make a new recipe this week to post on the blog. Look forward to an upcoming post this week :o) [keep buggin/remindin her if she doesn't post one! hehe.]

And here is the down low on J...
1.No sweets (or soda) [fail] {{she is also thinking of changing this goal to 'desserts' once a week}}
2.Finish The Book of Mormon [getting there!]
3.Read the scriptures and pray daily
4.Exercise at least 3 times a week [check] {{She has been trying to go right after school}}
5.Control anger
6.Decrease procrastination...lets admit it, J could never totally be free of this :]
7.Write in my journal daily
[and to be honest, T is writing this so she doesn't know if J failed or checked off the rest of the goals this week...but she is doing great!]

The 'Two Phat Chicks' are excited that today starts a new week and a fresh start to succeed at those goals!! They are also hoping to start back up "weigh-in wednesdays"! So come back this week to see how they have done! :o)

Hope you all have a fabulous week and have a goal set in mind!

Tonight The 2 Phat Chicks decided to see how far they could streeetch themselves and took a yoga class at the gym. It was quite the site to see...let's just say they were no where near close to the human pretzel instructor! haha. Even though they might have looked quite rediculous, in the end T and J loved it and are excited to go back! They have heard that the more you do it the better you they can't wait to give it another try and actually be able to do some of the poses more correctly. All in all it was a relaxing, stress-free, night for The 2 Phat Chicks :)

Have any of you fellow readers ever given yoga a try and what did you think about your first time?!

J's goals for a fabulous year

After a great, yet not very productive year, J decided that to make 2010 the best year possible she needed to come up with a few goals that she could accomplish. To make the goals the most useful J had to look back at the past year and look at the areas that really needed some help! so after much contemplation, she came up with this list of 7 goals:
  1. No sweets (or soda)
  2. Finish The Book of Mormon
  3. Read the scriptures and pray daily
  4. Exercise at least 3 times a week
  5. Control anger
  6. Decrease procrastination...lets admit it, J could never totally be free of this :]
  7. Write in my journal daily

So the two phat chicks really feel that this year they will become the TWO PHIT CHICKS!! :]
