Well, now that Christmas is done and over, so are the excuses. It’s time to kick “fat Amy” out. (For those who haven’t watch the hilariously ridiculousness, pitch perfect, do it. Haha.)
Aubrey: What’s your name?
Fat Amy: Fat Amy.
Aubrey: You call yourself Fat Amy?
Fat Amy: Yeah, so twig bitches like you don’t do it behind my back.
I love the holidays, Christmas is my most favorite time of the year I’m not even kidding. Not only do you get to spend all the awesome time with family, but you get to give and receive presents, eat awesome food, and just relax….. But that’s now over and the food eating and not working out has to stop…….. I have a feeling this is going to suck “Well… sometimes I have the feeling I can do crystal meth, but then I think, mmm… better not.”
I have a lot of things to be thankful for in 2012… it was a phenomenal year… so many great things happened, so many people came into my life that were unexpected, and it was AMAZING, and I have really gotten my ass back in gear. I wanted to take a minute to be sentimental and thank a few people…. so here goes nothing…
Juan – thank you for being my rock. You don’t NEED me to look any different then I look now, you don’t NEED me to be any different then I am now, you love me for me, and you support me for chasing my dreams and getting to my goals… you know what it takes for me to get to where i want to go (no free time, haha) and you are ok with it… i don’t know what I would do without you… i love you and can’t wait to marry you this year!!!!!
Evie – thank you for getting me back into the gym, i wouldn’t be where I am today without you getting me into RTB and into CRANK and sticking with it… you’re not only my trainer, but also my friend, and I couldn’t replace that with anything!
Brian/Jenny/Jim/Dana – without you guys, and your AMAZING gym, I’d still be sitting on my ass eating chick-fil-a everyday, and 30 pounds heavier…. I have no doubt in my mind that I will be walking down that aisle in 10 short months, the happiest and fittest I have ever been, and it will be because of you. Thanks for believing in me, and pushing me to go further then I ever thought I could… I can’t wait to spend the next year with you guys (and you willlllllllll totally be getting sick of me, and I’m sorry) hahaa.
Stephanie – thanks for being you, buff and tuff HAHA watching you work towards your goals, makes me want to work harder for mine everyday… my New years resolution is to be HALF as strong as you… thanks for keeping me on track and for being a great friend!
To my Friends…. the ones who read this silly SILLY blog… your kind words, your motivation, your inspiration, your willingness to help me move forward with my goals is something that I will forever be indebted to you for… you read my complaints, my triumphs, and my stupidness, and you continue to comment, send me emails, send me ideas, and remind me that no matter what, never give up… never stop pushing forward and getting to my goals….. I couldn’t have done this alone, and without your support I’d still be a size 18!!!!
To a special friend who believes in me… Ashley. Thanks for taking a chance in me with these shirts. We constantly motivate each other to keep moving forward with this stupid weight loss, and doing it together makes it so much better! with everything on your plate, you will never know how much it means to me to add something else! 🙂
To my Family…. (the ones who support me HAHA) i just LOVE you guys… you know I just want to better myself, and all you want to do is help. I love you, and just THANKS.
to TWITTER… the tweets, the retweets, the motivation, you guys are awesome, and without hashtags, #icandoit, and venting, I’d be super bored. HAHA
2013 is going to be a great year… I have some resolutions just like everyone else, but I’m actually going to stick with them… My biggest one is to JUST STICK WITH IT. Yeah, I have done a great job over the past few months… but frankly, NOT DAMN GOOD ENOUGH. I made excuses, I told myself, tomorrow, tomorrow, but NO… that needs to stop. That fucking just needs to stop. I can’t keep doing that. I’ll still make progress, but not the type of progress that I should be making… On October 12th, 2013, if I am not 100% happy with how I look, how I feel and happy about the progress I have made, it’s going to be tough being in front of all my family and friends while feeling like a million bucks, and on your wedding day, thats how you want to feel. Also, I’m going to start putting myself first. I know that doesn’t sound like a fit type goal, but it is. My friends just need to support me and what I’m doing, and if that means I can’t go out drinking, or I can’t do something during the week because I’m working, and working out, TOO DAMN BAD. Be my friend, and don’t get mad. And if you want to get mad, and you don’t get it, I want you out of my life… I’m sorry, but clearly, I don’t have time for the bullshit… I barely have time to take a shit, let alone for the bullshit… so just support me, I’m not going anywhere, I’m still a good friend, but for once, you aren’t going to be my main priority… I am going to be…. My last resolution is that I’m going to seriously be a better sister…. I love you sam, michael and joey, and I want to make sure I’m there for you because thats my job, and I’m doing a shitty one right now…. All i want for 2013, is be happy and healthy, fit and strong, and just be a good person and friend…
I’ve set some goals, small ones, but realistic ones… like I want to be able to to do my first mud run in may, I want to be able to actually make it through a tough mudder in june, I want to deadlift 250 pounds, and I want to be able to run around our god damn gym twice without losing my breath… I want to lose another 60 pounds, and I want to walk down that aisle in October happy… surrounded with my loved ones….
So let’s say ok, out with the old, FOR REAL, in with the new, let’s stop making mistakes, and get back on track, and let’s do it together!!!
Here are some of my favorite tweets from 2012!!! haha
