So last Friday i hit big record for me!
I have officially lost my first 20lbs The whole month of February has sucked. 
I think i am tired of trying to eat good. :/ I am tired of counting calories even tho I still am doing it.
But i will continue on, i know i will hate myself if stop tracking and watching what i eat and i gain all this weight back. 

I have tried over and over and over again to lose my weight, this is THE FIRST time ever to be able to lose this much weight and keep it off! 

So for my first official 20lbs lost i rewarded myself with NEW SHOES!!!! Thanks to my hunny!! 

Add me on MFP (britney 502) to see me exercising and my continued weight loss, its a slow progress but better then no progress! I could use all the support you want to give :) 

My Goals for the week until next Wednesday!
2 more days of Get Fit February! 
Start Shred 27 burn(started Tuesday)
I did my first workout Tuesday, first ever dvd workout. I have what i call "lazy" workouts that I have been doing since November..this is my first time kicking butt and sweating hardcore!! :) Felt awesome. I am soo so so so proud of myself. 

Next i want is to buy weights and start working on getting smaller arms!!! 

Happy HUMP DAY Everyone!!!

Being an Aunt!

Hi Friends! :) 
I am sorry I have been so MIA
Last week i was sick, I may or may not have gotten Tevis sick also
Hope everyone had a great weekend. 

Over a week ago i Finally got to go spend some time with my 6 month old niece. I went and spent the night at my parents house, it was time i go spend time with my family! I went by myself, Tevis and the pups stayed home. It was our first night away from each other in over two years, so i was anxious about leaving him by himself. He did ok, makes me feel little bit better leaving him, because in less then two weeks i will be leaving for Oklahoma with my mom, for four nights. 
Anyways, we both survived....and when I cam home i was surprised with this. (it was almost valentines day)

He was so excited for me to come home. I love when i seen him because he hugged my like i had been gone for weeks! I love him so much!!!

Also while i was gone to my moms I needed a change!!!!
Bye bye blonde!! Hello Deep violet/red! I love the change, it has faded a little already but that's because of how blonde my hair was. this of course will be so much easier to maintain :) What do you think??? 

Being an aunt to me is the most amazing job in the world! I will be this little girls best friend, someone she can come to, someone she can trust, someone she can always know in her heart I will never let her down. That little girl has so much love around her she will never be without. I may not ever get to be a mother to my own baby, so being an Aunt to me is pretty darn close. I get to spend 5 days with her while we are in Oklahoma and i couldn't be more excited for the extra time i get with her. I am going to be her favorite aunt :) 
Here are some pictures from my visit with her!!!
She absolutely loves her grandpa!!! <3

This was taken before I rocked her cute face to sleep. She does not liked being held like a baby, so i took it when she let me :) 

Grandpa and Tay sleeping :) 
My favorite picture of us too

Sitting up all by herself, she loves to play, sing, talk and dance :) 

she is so precious! Melts my heart!

Miss Taylin Nicole Snyder 
She will be 7 months in just over a week. I cannot believe it! 

And here is one MORE pure cuteness you will want to see!!
 A kiss from my niece :) hehe

We Can Wednesday! {10}

Hi Friends,
So I am down for the count.
I am sick :(

'We Can! Wednesday' with LoyalRUN and myself!
The day when we share all things health, fitness, and/or goal related!
Grab a button and link up to join the fun with us!!

This will be short and sweet seeing as being on my laptop is THE LAST THING i want to do!

I have been on my weight-loss journey since beginning of November, starting weight was 220 i am now bouncing back between 201-203 here lately.  I am PROUD to say i am in size 18 pants now. I was in size 22 just less then a year ago, over the summer went down to 20. AHH feels nice to continuing going down, cant wait for the day i am no longer in plus size clothes! I can tell a difference in my waist, stomach and face areas most!

I truly thought counting calories was the best option for me, but i was stressing out more then I should have been. My girl Erica and I have decided to stop focusing on calorie counting and go straight into Paleo lifestyle.
Erica had me watch clips of Dr. oz's show...i figured out i was type 2
So this diet will consist of 3 cheat meals a week, a paleo dessert every night. No calorie counting!
CLEAN EATING it is :) I hope this will help me mentally and stop stressing over calories.

Guest Post: Erica @ LoyalRUN

I am so excited to be doing a guest post for the lovely Lady Luck!

 I'm Erica and I blog over at
I am a lifestyle blogger, but lately I have been focusing a lot on my weight loss journey.
I have lost 30 lbs in under 3 months. You can track what I eat and how I exercise on MyFitnessPal.
Feel free to add me. My username is: LoyalRUN

When Britney asked me to do a guest post, I was half-way asleep and had no idea what I would post about.
Then I remembered how Britney, being the wonderful friend that she is, hounded me for weighing in every day!
Thanks Britney!
I'm glad she is open and honest with me, because she notices things about me that I sometimes don't see myself.

It's a wonderful way to improve the type of person you are, so you can become the type of person you want to become.

I have already written a post about how the scale does not define you. And that is so true! That number on the scale means nothing if you can see and feel a difference!! It is possible to drop a size without the scale changing!

As much as I believe that the scale doesn't define you, I have caught myself weighing in EVERY SINGLE DAY!
I didn't even notice I was doing it.
I never got discouraged if I didn't see the numbers drop, and I didn't go crazy if I saw the numbers go up. BUT I'm glad I caught it now, because it could have really got out of control!
Thanks, Britney, for reminding me not to weigh in daily!!! 

I have come up with a new plan when it comes to weighing in.
I will weigh in on Monday mornings.
Monday's are my "cheat days" so it will help me know how much room I have to wiggle.

I will weigh in on Wednesday mornings.
I want to weigh in on Wednesday mornings for the "We Can" link-up and also so I know how hard I have to push to lose what I may have gained on Monday.

My ultimate goal is to get down to weighing myself once a week. 
My goal is to be healthy, not "skinny". The scale is just an added bonus, NOT a focus!

Each step may seem small, but they eventually all add up and get ya to the TOP!

We Can Wendesday {9}

Hi Friends and New Followers,

This is a easy link up a good way to stay accountable and get some support from other fellow bloggers who are on a weight loss journey!
All you need to do is grab the button and Link up your post!
You can post anything goal, fitness or health related! We would love to read whatever ya post.

So I just recently turned 25 and my bff Erica @ LoyalRUN decided to spoil me with one of my fave gifts i got...
I have been on this weight loss journey with her before, but never continued. This time around I have been on this journey with her since November and i have lost up to 19lbs. Its a slow progress for me but i am determined to lose 50lbs before 2014 is over! 

So Tuesday night even though i had a headache from hell, i had to try out my Polar Watch FT7.
I ran in place for 3:06 minutes and burned 28 calories! I love seeing how many calories i am truly burning! I don't have a treadmill nor do i want to go outside in this crazy cold, so thought as of last night I would start running place and keep adding minutes on and see if that'll help me out for when i start running outside again. 3 minutes may not seem a lot to you, but i ran/jogged for 3 minutes straight without stopping and that's major for me! 

I did day 11 of the Get Fit February Challenge.... and burned 26 calories, MFP was close, said i was burning 24 calories. Planks SUCK! lol end of story. Are you doing the challenge with us?? Hope so, let me know how you are doing

So i found this on Pinterest, suppose to be a 100 calorie workout, as you can see i only burned 30, maybe i did it too fast I AM NOT SURE. This watch is a life savor! At least i hope i am using it right. If you have a watch like this, do this quick workout and let me know how many calories you burn. 

Overall i am so incredibly lucky to have this polar watch and will use it EVERYDAY! Can't wait for warm weather so i can put it to work even more! I officailly feel like i am in the "cool" fitness bloggers group hehe. We should have a facebook page for it ;) 

No grab button AND LINK UP!!!!!!!!!!!

I feel "cool" saying I am 25, but i am secretly freaking out i am getting older lol. LIFE SLOW DOWN!

I celebrated for three days <3
thought i would share some photos from the weekend! Short and sweet post to sum up how Lucky and Blessed I am :) 

Tamara came into town for the weekend! 
she is the best bestie ever, we woke up Saturday, she took me to lunch, got a pedicure and bought me a few things from the mall. We ended the day with Dinner at Olive Garden with some friends and then came home to rent a movie and just hang out. It was a great day! We celebrated a day early because Tamara had to leave Sunday AM to get back to her kiddos and Brian had to work. 

My birthday drink was this! I posted it a few posts ago!
It is a must you all should try it, if you love WINE! I enjoyed two full glasses!

Step 1 – Place two scoops of vanilla ice cream in a glass
Step 2 – Add 1/2 cup of Strawberry Soda

I got a cute bear and pink flip flop slippers from Miss Delaney, tevis' mom got my a bread pan and a picture frame. I am excited about that bread pan, because i am thinking i can finally make a meatloaf that i wont waste ;) hehe
