You know that Facebook/Reality Cat meme?

I made my own little version of it…


I don’t know if you remember, but I got started and really going on the Couch-to-5K app while we were in Mexico and it was AWESOME. But! Then our world turned upside and all around and the running thing went out the window and I’m afraid it’s not coming back until we hit the road again. It’s just waaaaaay too cumbersome with the hills (not to mention the *things* in the hills – our neighbor was asking if we’d seen bobcats “yet”).

The gym? Well, sure with a 2 hour drive each way to it! What else?

With what little weight I had lost climbing back and settling back in, I’ve found myself freaking out some – So!  I took action and this is what I have done:

Mama’s Slim Kitty Weight Loss Plan

1. Standard Process

Signed up for the Standard Process 21-Day Cleanse (- if you are interested, holla and I’ll refer you to my Mom – she’s a distributor). This is not one of those big time hard-core euphamisms for a bathroom fest; it’s really more of an overall food re-set. You get eating HEALTHY with this, “healthy” with a capital, “H”.

2. BeachBody

Signed up for the T25 videos – basically, it’s supposed to be a really intense, focused work out that only lasts 25 minutes. Okay. I’ll give it a shot. In conjunction, with this, I ordered the Shakeology thing from BeachBody – I used my friend as a coach, and if you are interested, please sign up under her too – let’s support our Mom-run businesses!  

– the Shakeology is for after I’m done with the 21 Day Cleanse.

– the T25 workout is for NOW (whenever I receive it)

3. Workout Aids

Ordered an elliptical to have here in the house and also some free weights


A lot of stuff

I feel pretty gross about spending money to lose weight, I feel like I should be like Rocky lift logs for exercise while running up and down these steep dirt roads – FOR FREE – but who am I kidding? Like that’s going to happen?! And DAMMIT! I’m SICK OF THIS! I don’t want another month to go by without actually doing something about this and feeling better about my body, my self.

For those of you who are interested, I’ll be updating on Instagram daily under the hashtag #slimkitty4thewin

My Goal:

I talk more about this on the page I set up – how much I want to lose and a little more detail. But my goal is really just to be a Slim Cat. Like, I want to not be like a Japanese schoolgirl when I take a photo, angling for *the best angle*, I want things to just be slim, trim and real:


The page where you can stop by if you are interested and follow my progress and goals and all that good stuff is here.

If you are on a slim kitty journey yourself, PLEASE HOLLA because man! The more of us doing this and patting each other on the back – or even getting competitive, whatever it takes within loving reason, right? –

  1. Love this! I’ve been on this journey and I am looking forward to sharing it with you. I am down 55 lbs since Christmas. About 15 to 20 lbs left to go. Keep up the good work!
